Lobby Ambassador, Simon Treadway Gato came to the Red Lion Inn in 2006 from the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter (Pittsfield, MA). Simon is the only full-time resident of the property, roaming the Main Inn and keeping guests company on the grand sofas in the Lobby while soaking up attention from all who come to the Inn. He often escorts guests to their rooms and is the go-to Chief Mouser as well as serving as the mascot of the Inn. Simon has a significant following among our guests on his Facebook page. Simon continues the tradition of a feline representation at the Inn. Long-time guests have fond recollections of the Fitzpatrick family cat Gus, who was a fixture at The Red Lion in the 1970s.
