I have been coming to the General Lewis for many years. Always looking forward to the fabulous food and service. Service could always be compared to that of the Greenbrier, but with that small town feel, touch and flare that you get. Service remains excellent,...More

Stayed here over Halloween night to see if we could "scare up" some ghosts lol! Couldn't bring myself to stay in one of the "haunted" rooms, but stayed just a few doors down from them. Still was spooky enough! Beautiful old hotel. Nicely redone bathrooms....More

I am planning an Airstream Club luncheon during our International Rally that will take place at the Fairground the last week of June 2016. I need seating for approximately 150 people with enough space to conduct an induction ceremony for our new Region officers. Can you handle something like that.

I do not believe the General Lewis Inn would be large enough. From our visit, I'd suggest the Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, only 10 miles away.
