“I hate to give this secret away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2009

A great way to slow down and enjoy life. Excellent food for dinner and GREAT Breakfast!
If you were to ask us to choose between the Greenbrier Resort or General Lewis Inn, the inn wins for us.

Although we were only there for one night we would certainly consider another visit and have already told several friends about Lewisburg and the General Lewis Inn. We were glad that we arrived early enough to take a walk down the hill to visit the quaint shops in Lewisburg and still had enough time to enjoy the backyard gardens before dinner in your lovely dining area. Our beds were perfect and all in all we had a perfectly grand visit. Thank you...

The General Lewis is a country inn, with charming period rooms and country ambiance. We love the setting, the big porch, and the cozy rooms. Food in the restaurant is excellent, and service is relaxed and friendly. Grounds and setting are lovely, and location is convenient for exploring Lewisburg on foot.

Informative website makes online booking easy.

A lovely inn chocked full of antiques...each room is unique. The location is great - Lewisburg is a wonderful town to stroll and check out the unusual shops. We were very comfortable and would definitely go back.

I traveled with my husband and two colleagues. They were surprised at the ccommodations for business travel. I wanted to provide a relaxed atmosphere the night before we attended our business meetings. The rooms were very comfortable and the meals (dinner and breakfast) were delicious. Staff was extremely warm and friendly and the service was first class. We are trying to decide between you and The Homestead for our Fall Foliage trip to enjoy the changing of the leaves. Thank you for a wonderful experience and we hope to stay with you again soon.

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 the uniqueness with quaint touches. Tip: inquire as to bath facilities in room you consider booking as some are quite small. However even this adds to the charm.

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 room was very comfortable.
