I've stayed in the General Lewis at least four times and considered it a lovely getaway each time. I love that you can walk upstairs, look in doors, and choose your antique-filled room for the night. Each room is different. I love that the windows can be opened for fresh air and that pillows come in different fluff levels. I love the wonderful food smells that waft up the stairs. There is so much to do just blocks away -- an Irish pub with Irish music, the Livery restaurant and its singers, at least four antique shops, four art galleries, Carnegie Hall, Greenbrier Valley Theatre, Trillium dance performances or movies in the Lewis Theatre, North House Museum, and lots of great restaurants and shops.
And oh yes, the staff is friendly too.
