“My favorite place to stay of all time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is my favorite place to stay. Better than all other hotels nationwide. The atmosphere, the service and the restaurant are just magical. I have stayed here many times over the past 25 years, and it just gets better. The decor and atmosphere is amazing. The restaurant serves nothing but the best, and the service is impecable.

Room Tip: Any room of great

My family stayed here on our way to take our children to camp. Although the bed was small (do not stay here if you are used to a king!), overall it was great. The service was very friendly, the rooms were clean, it was quiet, and the breakfast we had at the restaurant downstairs was hearty.

My family and I have stayed at the General Lewis for the last 14 years every late June. The grandchildren love the garden in the back, to run and play. They catch lightening bugs and play games. There are several tables and chairs in the garden for family to set about and visit with one another. If not too busy, the staff will serve you drinks on the front porch and breakfast in bed. Each room is different . The dinning room serves a great breakfast. Do not miss an opportunity to experience the General Lewis in Lewisburg, WV.

Room Tip: I prefer the larger up stair rooms. The garden rooms look out on the beautiful back yard gardens.

Short and sweet; if you want to feel the essence of the early 20th century enhanced with relics from the civil war era and wrapped up in friendly, accommodating service, stay here! Second floor rooms are best for a quiet night. Guests at the in observed the request for quiet after 11:00, making a lack of insulation a non-issue. We were here for a family reunion and would definitely return. We felt as if we were at home. Early risers, we found fresh brewed coffee at 6:00AM. Everything was wonderful.

Dear Friends, It was delightful to have your family stay here with us. Thank you for the kind words on Trip Advisor. Good suggestion about the rooms on the second floor, yes, they are more out of earshot. Hope to have you back again soon. Warm regards, Nan

The Inn and the town were very nice. Highly recommend Lewisburg and the General Lewis Inn. They have a nice Pub and nice dining all in walking distance. For ghost enthusiasts there is a cemetery at The Old Stone Church, also The Confederate Cemetery was awesone!

Room Tip: No pool hit accidentally The Inn was very nice. We actually went in July 2011

Dear Ghost Lovers, Well, it may have been a while since you've been here, so you'll need to come on back and hear new stories about the Ghosts!!! We've had plenty of unidentified doorbell ringing and mysterious other happenings. Thank you for the kind words about the Inn and Lewisburg as well. We've probably got the best restaurants in a three block area in the entire state of WV!!! Hope to have you back soon, Nan.

This is the only place one should stay when visiting Lewisburg! I was in town with the family for the D.O. graduation. This Inn is located in walking distance to the medical school and the historic downtown. The bed and breakfast is perfect for families. Very clean, elegant, and classy. I can't forget the polite staff and cute white dog. Beautiful landscape and views. We stayed for 2 nights and had 3 rooms. I found the rooms upstairs to be larger then downstairs. There is a dining room that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I will have to say the breakfast was my favorite out of the three. Either way this place was perfect and I would not consider staying anywhere else when visiting Lewisburg.

Room Tip: Some rooms can be small. I would consider paying the higher fee for the bigger room. There cost per...

Dear D.O. Graduate Family, We loved having you here, too. Haley (cute white doggie) recognized you by the time you'd checked out. Those days went so quickly. Hope that if the winds blow you our way again, you'll be sure to stop and stay with us. Fun to catch up and hear how the Graduate fared in this crazy world. Warm regards, Nan

We love the General Lewis Inn and every year head to the Inn to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn is comfortable with a great front porch, creaking wooden floors, and a helpful staff. Lewisburg is a charming town with outstanding shopping, restaurants, and a great vibe. Do yourself a favor and put this one on your calendar.

Room Tip: WE like the second floor because it is a "historic" Inn.
