Whenever I am in Lewisburg, I always stay at the General Lewis Inn. Why would you stay in a chain hotel when you can stay in this lovely inn? Their service is personal and genuine. The period furniture and décor is beautiful; I enjoy walking around the halls each time I visit. Plus, the porch and gardens are gorgeous! I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are so glad you stayed with, and we couldn't agree more about staying in an authentic place, as opposed to a chain hotel. We appreciate your business and your feedback. We are sorry couldn't complete your happiness with serving breakfast every day. Although we do serve complimentary muffins, fruit, and... More

I took my boys for a summer vacation in WV. This place was awesome! Staff were very nice and helpful! The food and drinks were delicious! The location was perfect- right in the heart of the town. I would love to stay there again!

My wife and I enjoyed our wedding ceremony in the back garden of the General Lewis Inn. The staff had everything in order, including music, seating, champagne, dinner, and after dinner drinks. Additionally, my entire family came from New Jersey and stayed at the General Lewis Inn. They loved the rooms (not to mention the short walk to the Irish... More

My daughters' wedding was held a the Inn followed by dinner for the wedding party and we are so pleased with everything the Inn did! The garden where the wedding was held is phenominally beautiful and quiet: perfect for a quiet service. The dinner after was exceptional! A beautiful table was set on the front porch with flowers from their... More

Our wedding at the General Lewis Inn could not have been more beautiful. Our small ceremony in the back garden was lush with wisteria and tall trees. The chairs and Champagne toast were organized and ready for us. Our multi-course family dinner was delicious and the table was decked with fresh bouquets of flowers from the Inn's own garden beds....

We recently visited the General Lewis Inn for dinner. We had come up to show my family around Lewisburg and thought dinner there would be a great ending to the day out. Three of us ordered the rainbow trout. It was so tasteless that we couldn't even finish the meal. The only sides offered were rice, potatoes, and succotash. The... More

My niece and I visit Lewisburg every June and stay at the General Lewis Inn. We had another great stay this week. The staff was very accommodating to our date change, which I appreciated so much. We enjoyed spending time on the porch with a cold drink and watching it storm. A nice, relaxing and peaceful getaway.

This was our first trip back since the restaurant is under new ownership. We've been eating in the restaurant off and on for the last 10 years and we were looking forward to a special dinner here. The first thing we learned is that one of our favorite waiters is still on the staff - a good point in the... More

Went to GLI from a friends reco, after a short drive from Dawson, WV, we were not disappointed. We were allowed to bring our pup up on the patio with us and had a great brunch. Crab cakes, caprese omelette and the eggs (cooked perfectly to order) potatoes and biscuits, were all great. Biscuits were light and flaky with a... More

Still enjoy our stay at the Gen.Lewis Inn after all these years. We just celebrated our 55 th Anniversary here and the place is still as quaint and quiet as I remember. Yes, the stairs are a little more difficult to manage but we can still manage. If not, I'm sure the new manager would accommodate us. We'll be back!
