“It was a rewarding and fascinating experience staying at the Inn.”
Reviewed August 12, 2009

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.

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.
