Historic General Lewis Inn
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Lewisburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 9, 2010

Do yourself a huge favor and spend two or three days at the General Lewis Inn in Lewisburg, WVA. The town defines charm, The Inn defineshospitality. It has all of the amenities you might need, and the town will delight you, whether with its dining opportunities, myriad shops, and wonderful (in some cases world class) art galleries. It is a hidden gem.

Visited three years ago and a welcome return; still a thoroughly pleasant experience. Sadly the cat that made instant friends wth my wife had recently passed on so sad to miss our companion fromlast time and, having raved to our friends about the pepper jelly and crackers on the dinner menu, the waitress was very abashed to tell us that they were out of crackers! However, our alternative choices were excellent and this was a great stay.
Lewisburg is a gem of a small town with a nice strollable downtown where everyone seemed to know everyone else and were extremely friendly - we recommend the Wild Bean Cafe just down the road for a great coffee and a chilled ambience.

Excellent customer service throughout our stay. This hotel left a very positive impression on both of us. The dinner was wonderful and staff very attentive. We felt like we were treated like family.
My husband and I don't get away very often. We certainly appreciated your hospitality.

My granddaughter and I found our stay at the General Lewis Inn perfect in several ways. Very friendly staff, meticulously clean, reasonably priced fine dining, wonderful period furniture, added up to a most enjoyable stay. It was fun to pretend you had taken a step back in time. Charlotte, WV

We were unable to stay in the Inn because they were fully booked but the staff made us feel at home anyway. We had an pleasant rest stop here before going on to a B&B farmhouse that they reserved for us as a courtesy. I have a lot of pictures from this place and really liked their stories and memorabilia. The manager gave us a list of things to do around Lewisburg that proved helpful. Excellent hospitality.

The General Lewis Inn is a historic bed and breakfast inn. There are many antiques that add to the simple charm of it. Each bedroom, I assume, as ours was, was designed for comfort. The restaurant was very good with reasonable prices and the wait staff was very responsive and willing to serve but not hovering. I was disappointed I could not stay longer.

This is a very interesting inn with lots of antiques to look at during your stay. The staff was very helpful. While we enjoyed our brief stay, I'm not too sure that the $250.00 tab for one night and a dinner was really worth it. A bar or drink service (other than wine at supper) would have been a nice way to relax in the great room with the fireplace.
