This place is extraordinary. When you are a guest, you feel as though you have not only stepped back in time, but to a time within your own family. The rooms are furnished with antiques, so you get a real sense of having walked into someone's living room, not into a stark hotel room. The staff is friendly and earnestly want to see travelers well attended to. The food is very good. There is a definite southern slant to the choices of fare offered. Also, the town of Lewisburg itself is a magical place. There are an abundance of restaurants that all have charm and style. Carnegie Hall up the street from the General Lewis offers some exceptional performances. If you want a taste of laid back, yet sophisticated country experiences, this is the place to come.
