Reviewed July 17, 2009

Believe the room air-conditioner was overwhelmed by a hot day and night.
We should have opened the window and found the ceiling fan earlier.
But that's our fault.
Otherwise, a perfect stay in a really great environment.
Will return to the General Lewis Inn

Our room was very clean with a home like feeling. I wouldn't change a thing. We loved Lewisburg. It is not far away from our home and close to some realatives. We plan to visit next summer.

The General Lewis Inn is a charming place, full of character and ambience. Momentos of days gone by can be found everywhere, and the rooms are simple, yet interesting. I recently visited with my sister and mother, and we stayed in one of the "family suites." It consisted of two small rooms with windows onto the garden, one bed in the first room, and a step up to two beds in the back room, which also featured a fireplace. The rooms were not spacious, but they had everything we needed, including TVs in each and ample seating. The bathroom was minimal, but we did notice the soft towels. The restaurant served a wonderful dinner with wine. We enjoyed rocking on the front porch and in the large gathering room. The backyard was delightful, with benches and flowers in bloom. It was a nice respite after dinner. The quaint shops of Lewsiburg were a delightful walk down the hill. I recommend this Inn, especially if you enjoy a step back in time!

Our sixth-seventh time at the GL because it's so much like coming home. The character and charm of the Inn is only exceeded by the helpful and caring staff. Dinner is always a treat, and prepared with the greatest of care. Are you tired of "yet another Hiton"? Use the General Lewis to set the standard for your out-of-mundane stays.

We have stayed at the General Lewis several times and have never been disappointed. Everything is clean and comfortable. The people are always warm and inviting. And the dining is great for any meal. Our favorite time is a glass of wine on the porch after dinner.
