Main floor room with two beds and quite unusual use of former closets to creat bath; no need for air conditioner and only used ceiling fan. Menu and waiter in restaurant were outstanding for both evening meals and breakfast. A quiet elegance, gently refined to modern standards while retaining bygone era motiff with decor. Each room different which adds to... More

It was our anniversary weekend and our first stay away from our infant daughter. So, we wanted to make our night out special. The General Lewis Inn has a great reputation and we love downtown Lewisburg. I really loved the fact that the Inn was decorated with antiques that we could use as well. The service was great and the... More

Believe the room air-conditioner was overwhelmed by a hot day and night. We should have opened the window and found the ceiling fan earlier. But that's our fault. Otherwise, a perfect stay in a really great environment. Will return to the General Lewis Inn

Our room was very clean with a home like feeling. I wouldn't change a thing. We loved Lewisburg. It is not far away from our home and close to some realatives. We plan to visit next summer.

The General Lewis Inn is a charming place, full of character and ambience. Momentos of days gone by can be found everywhere, and the rooms are simple, yet interesting. I recently visited with my sister and mother, and we stayed in one of the "family suites." It consisted of two small rooms with windows onto the garden, one bed in... More

Our sixth-seventh time at the GL because it's so much like coming home. The character and charm of the Inn is only exceeded by the helpful and caring staff.

We have stayed at the General Lewis several times and have never been disappointed. Everything is clean and comfortable. The people are always warm and inviting. And the dining is great for any meal. Our favorite time is a glass of wine on the porch after dinner.

Love the General Lewis Inn. I have been staying here for years while visiting WVSOM and it's always a pleasure. The rooms and service are delightful and I love the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
