This was our second stay at the Inn and we could not have been happier. The staff was warm and welcoming. Our room was perfect for our family and the beds were very comfortable. Ended with a delicious breakfast. Highly recommend!

We didn't make it in time to eat here but the lady at the hotel desk invited us to look around the hotel at our leisure. She was so hospitable! A charming and historical place. We spoke with a housekeeping attendant who said rooms 208 and 206 used to be haunted! Guests have reported seeing apparitions of a little girl...

We received a AAA discount and a queen room on the first floor. It had a small serviceable bath and nice sized room with antique furnishings. Parking was near the room and decorations were homey and special with lights and greenery. The place has a great feel and it's easy to find yourself transplanted to the 1800s. The bar and...

However, when we returned in December 2016, we had a bad experience with the room and food service as to dinner...

We attended our niece's wedding and stayed at the General Lewis Inn. The wedding reception was held at the Inn. The owner and her staff did an outstanding job and were attentive to details. The food was excellent and our room was nice. However, I did have to duck my head under the bathroom door way. All in all, a...

There has not been a trip Lewisburg where I miss out on going to the General Lewis. The Inn is located perfectly just blocks from the center of town. From the staff to the food, it's all divine. The owners have found a perfect balance of improving the necessary to keep the Inn at it's best, while still maintaining a...

The inn was charming. Our room (211) was very spacious, with a canopy bed plus an area with a small sofa, coffee table, and arm chair. The bathroom was very small, and the water pressure in the shower was a bit low, but that did not detract. The bed was comfortable, and two windows looked out onto the back patio...

This larger B&B retains all the charm of a small B&B with more rooms. Home baked cookies and bar with table games at the fireplace all fit very well with the feel. Close to historic area of LewisBurg so walking to theater or dinner is easy. The rooms all looked great. Our room was priced a bit higher than some...
