“Lovely Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2005

The General Lewis Inn is immaculate and lovely. It is not opulent, but it is a very nice place to stay. The service was wonderful and we very much enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the Inn restaurant. We have been to the Lewisburg area many times to pick up and drop off our children at summer camp, and have previously stayed at the Greenbrier which is exquisite, but not really worth the price unless you have time to enjoy the amenities. Highly recommended.

Stayed July 2005

There are so many elements that make the General Lewis Inn an especially wonderful and stress free experience. The key seems to be the staff - from the front desk help of Rhonda and Helen, to the patience of Elizabeth in the dining room, or the well informed housekeepers, you find yourself surrounded by folks whose hearts radiate the charm and gentility of the Inn. We really cannot emphasis enough how delightful it is to sit at the breakfast table, be visited by Mr. Morgan, and conclude our day with wine on the porch and a friendly kitty in our lap. They are in the business of providing excellent and sincere service, in a charming setting with delicious food - in short, the respite that we all need.

We want others to enjoy the General Lewis, we just hope we can get back there in the near future!! Our appreciation for a wonderful stay, and do what we did - try several different rooms!

We just returned from a three-day stay at the General Lewis Inn. The atmosphere is so welcoming and comfortable that we plan to make it our "home" whenever we travel to the area. We felt so very much at home and so relaxed that it turned what began as more or less a business trip into a getaway. We plan to return often.

The General Lewis Inn is inviting to overnight guests as well as casual dining clientele.

We look forward to either staying as guests or taking a meal or two on our semi-annual trips to the area. The rooms are all different and most times you may pick anc choose the one that suits you best. The sitting area has something for everyone, games, rocking chairs, a fireplace, books and magazines. You may have your dessert and coffee served there if you like

The owners and locals are seen here frequently and are friendly and open to answer inquiries.

Visitors can feel free to stop in and browse through another century and don't miss the antiques exhibited in the hallways.
