My wife and I have stayed here most summers for the last 15 years while she is in town on business. There are many options to stay nearby with pools and exercise rooms but we just can't tear ourselves away from the wonderful service we receive at the General. The food service is also amazing. Their chefs rival anything we... More

This is my favorite place to stay. Better than all other hotels nationwide. The atmosphere, the service and the restaurant are just magical. I have stayed here many times over the past 25 years, and it just gets better. The decor and atmosphere is amazing. The restaurant serves nothing but the best, and the service is impecable.

My family stayed here on our way to take our children to camp. Although the bed was small (do not stay here if you are used to a king!), overall it was great. The service was very friendly, the rooms were clean, it was quiet, and the breakfast we had at the restaurant downstairs was hearty.

My family and I have stayed at the General Lewis for the last 14 years every late June. The grandchildren love the garden in the back, to run and play. They catch lightening bugs and play games. There are several tables and chairs in the garden for family to set about and visit with one another. If not too busy,... More

Short and sweet; if you want to feel the essence of the early 20th century enhanced with relics from the civil war era and wrapped up in friendly, accommodating service, stay here! Second floor rooms are best for a quiet night. Guests at the in observed the request for quiet after 11:00, making a lack of insulation a non-issue. We... More

Dear Friends, It was delightful to have your family stay here with us. Thank you for the kind words on Trip Advisor. Good suggestion about the rooms on the second floor, yes, they are more out of earshot. Hope to have you back again soon. Warm regards, Nan More

The Inn and the town were very nice. Highly recommend Lewisburg and the General Lewis Inn. They have a nice Pub and nice dining all in walking distance. For ghost enthusiasts there is a cemetery at The Old Stone Church, also The Confederate Cemetery was awesone!

Dear Ghost Lovers, Well, it may have been a while since you've been here, so you'll need to come on back and hear new stories about the Ghosts!!! We've had plenty of unidentified doorbell ringing and mysterious other happenings. Thank you for the kind words about the Inn and Lewisburg as well. We've probably got the best restaurants in a...

This is the only place one should stay when visiting Lewisburg! I was in town with the family for the D.O. graduation. This Inn is located in walking distance to the medical school and the historic downtown. The bed and breakfast is perfect for families. Very clean, elegant, and classy. I can't forget the polite staff and cute white dog.... More

Dear D.O. Graduate Family, We loved having you here, too. Haley (cute white doggie) recognized you by the time you'd checked out. Those days went so quickly. Hope that if the winds blow you our way again, you'll be sure to stop and stay with us. Fun to catch up and hear how the Graduate fared in this crazy world.... More

We love the General Lewis Inn and every year head to the Inn to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn is comfortable with a great front porch, creaking wooden floors, and a helpful staff. Lewisburg is a charming town with outstanding shopping, restaurants, and a great vibe. Do yourself a favor and put this one on your calendar.

Highly recommended. The location is quiet and residential, but only a few steps from excellent coffee shop and a truly great Irish pub. The hotel dining room is also welcoming. Breakfast is not included, but worth the price. The staff is warm and outgoing. And the ambiance truly historic. As a plus, there is a spacious garden, partially tree-shaded, with... More

A friend of mine and I rented one of the two two-bedroom "suites" at the inn. This is the fourth or fifth time I've stayed at the General Lewis, and my experience has always been excellent.
