“Winter fun with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

My husband and I have fallen in love with the General Lewis Inn as have our friends, and this is our second weekend stay with friends. The Inn is charming and warm, and every room is different. They are all furnished with antiques, but still have flat screen TV and wi-fi! The food, too, is not to be missed! You absolutely must try the winter weekend special the Inn offers. The dinners and breakfasts are all included in a two night stay for a fabulous value. Make reservations for your dinner! Staff is great, too!

Room Tip: No elevators, so first floor rooms are great for those who'd rather not deal with stairs. Also...

Well, thanks for a great Trip Advisor Review. You were such a fun group of people it seemed like the Inn came alive when you arrived, and it got very quiet when you left. We just loved having you all here and the weather seemed to give us all lots to talk about. Looking forward to having you back. Sincerely, Nan and all the Crew here.

Excellent time...my sister and I took mom for her 60th. Great dinner and breakfast. Enjoyed the fireplace, string music, games and drinks on Sunday night. Had been there several times prior with my spouse. Always a great experience. Staff is very kind and accommodating.

We've stayed at General Lewis Inn a few times now, and it's always a wonderful experience; charming, cozy, and convenient to Downtown Lewisburg. The staff is excellent and the restaurant is very nice. Breakfasts are good and plentiful! The wait staff treat you like family. When traveling to West Virginia, this will be my "second home."

Thanks for your kind words on Trip Advisor. We're grateful for our downtown location and how our guests only have a couple of blocks to walk to great restaurants (in addition to our own!) and fun shopping. Looking forward to being your "second home"!!! Sincerely, Nan

Stayed here over Christmas and the decorations in the great room by the big gas fireplace
made for a great Holiday atmosphere.

The restaurant is also very good but frequented by locals so you need reservations.

Room Tip: This is an antique building so some rooms are more updated than others. Heating unit can be noisy...

Dear Guest, Thanks so much for posting your comments on Trip Advisor. Paula did a great job on our Christmas Decorations and we had a wonderful holiday here. Glad that you had a chance to enjoy our dining room, and yes, we've got a lot of local people eating here, too, so it is good to have your reservations early. Sorry about the heater noise. Just can seem to get the fans to run as quietly as we'd like. Thanks for staying with us and looking forward to your return. Sincerely, Nan

The staff were extremely professional, and the rooms were clean. It's a great place to stay if you want to explore the town of Lewisburg. There's a cozy common area with a nice fireplace and plenty of antiques and historic artifacts to look at. Best thing about this place is the silence. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is the place to go.

The food was decent (but not exceptional). The service offered was good too. I can't offer a perfect rating because I'm a coffee fiend, and there was no coffee ready in the lobby when I went down in the morning. Other than that, no real complaints.

Dear Fellow Coffee Lover,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor. And thank you ESPECIALLY for the reminder on the importance of Morning Coffee. My sincere apology for not having our coffee ready for you. That's certainly one of the first things on most (whether travelers or workers) minds as we awake and get going in the mornings.
We are always trying to improve, so thanks also for the heads up on the food. Thank you again for your help. Sincerely, Nan Morgan

Had the most wonderful time during my stay in Lewisburg at the Gen. Lewis Inn. Can't wait to go back! Food was great, ambiance spectacular, and the staff was super sweet. Just a short walk into downtown Lewisburg with a great coffee shop and a pub that made me feel like I was back in Ireland!

We stayed at the General Lewis Inn for our 35th anniversary. The room (223) was excellent. Dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was superb. The wait-staff were so friendly and helpful. A 5-star stay!!!!!!

Room Tip: This is an older inn with wonderful, cozy, rooms. A wonderful fire awaits you in the foyer.

Dear McClungs, Thanks for the great review on Trip Advisor. We also really appreciated the email. Yes, the Inn would not be the same without Elizabeth and Coleman. We'll look forward to having you back. Wishing you all the Joy of the Season, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the coming New Year. Warm regards, Nan.
