“Autumn Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The Inn is the perfect place to enjoy all that Lewisburg has to offer...antique shops,Greenbrier Valley Theater,Carnegie Hall and on and on. The dining room is top rate and the rooms are clean and comfortable.The staff at all times was pleasant and accommodating to any requests. Especially nice is that each room is a little different than the next offering a variety from which to choose.We have stayed there in the past and always look forward to the return trip.

Room Tip: Be sure to look on-line at the size and bed type in each of the available rooms to assure the room y...

We arrived 45 minutes after check in and our room was still not available. They didn't even offer us a glass of ice tea while we waited. The bed was so high we had to swing our leg up over the edge. You couldn't sit down on it even standing on tip toe. The bathroom was so small I stubbed my toe on the tub half the time I went in there.

Room Tip: Don't get the garden room.

We came here to meet up with some friends in "America's Coolest Small Town" for the Taste of our Town" festival. It has been a great time! First of the Inn is cozy and very friendly with a great restaurant. The festival is a one day event benefiting their local Carnegie Hall. Yes they have a Carnegie Hall. apparently Carnegie built 4 of them and this cool little town has one one of them. The feet had loads of great food and entertainment.

Back to the inn... Our room is comfortable and clean and filled with antiques.the staff is welcoming and very accommodating and the food in their restaurant is not to be missed.

We have had a great week starting on the coast of NC and now amongst the turning autumn leaves! We highly recommend the General Lewis Inn to couples and for families

Room Tip: Just call the inn and tell them what you want they have a lot of choices for rooms. Some overlook th...

This is a charming B&B. A short walk to town brings you to shopping, enteratinament and food. Of course, we always eat dinner at the Inn and the food is excellent. I was happy to see that they added more selections to the menu. My husband and I don't live far, but do like to
"get away" for our anniversary. The Inn is close to home, in case the kiddos need us, but far enough away to feel like we are on a vacation. The staff are always friendly and the rooms very clean. I love the big front porch and the beautiful grounds in the back. We will visit again this Christmas for dinner after seeing a Christmas play at the theatre down the street.

Room Tip: We always stay on the 2nd floor, seems to be less traffic.

Remember, this is an historic building; the wooden floors creak, the walls have seen a lot of action, the doorways have had many people pass through. The decor and ambience stays fairly true to the 19th century. We stayed in Room 111 with two double beds and enough pillows to bolster any body. The room was clean and bright with plenty of good bedtime lighting. The bathroom was new, white, clean and fairly spacious; the plumbing worked just fine. Our room had two large windows to the back of the house but our view of the yard and garden was obscured by tall shrubs. We had two problems with the room: with 90+ heat with matching humidity on Labor Day weekend, we wanted blasts of cold air to offset the outside misery, but the AC rattled miserably on high--so we toned down the chiller and lived with the mugginess; and the chest of drawers may have been authentic, but they should have been functional as well instead of constantly off-track and unmanageable. The staff was pleasant and the room was clean. The backyard is perfect for kids to run around. What's nice is that downtown Lewisburg is just a couple of blocks away and a very pleasant walk. Returning from a lovely dinner, you can sit on the front porch and rock awa. I can see why it was considered the coolest USA town in 2011.

Room Tip: Visitors strolled outside our room all the time to see the 19th century antiques hung on the wall, b...

Charming Inn within walking distance of shops, restaurants and historic sites. Lots of character and history. Why stay at a chain hotel when you can have this experience for a few dollars more. Will come back here again.

The stay was a little pricey, but well worth it. The room was just a perfect size, nice TV. The food was out of sight!! Everyone was friendly. Nice area, within walking distance of shops and quiet. Will definitely stay again.
