I met friends for a girls' weekend. We enjoyed at stay at the Gen. Lewis Inn thoroughly. The rooms are well-appointed, the beds and pillows are comfortable, and the service is top-notch! We had an excellent dinner one evening and then relaxed in the Thistle Lounge by the fire with some good wine. The lounge also offers a range of...

My wife and I were in town visiting in-laws, and we decided to stay in The General Lewis Inn. It was a phenomenally charming place to stay with a lovely room and spacious bathroom. We had a view over the manicured and garden with the reflection pool. Every need was tended too (and there were even complimentary baked goods on...

We booked 3 nights (unfortunately we had to leave one night early, my husband took ill) under the Valentines package that they were offering. First of all, I have only stayed here previously on business and really liked the inn than as well. We stayed in room 204 in the West portion (original building). The bed is probably and honestly...

I have been going to the General Lewis for many, many years. However, my recent visit I found many changes that I'm not sure that all of them were for the best. I consider the General Lewis Inn one of my favorite getaways. Even while I was deployed years ago I flew into Andrews AFB in Washington, rented a car...

The winter months are not the time to visit. Their breakfast was a very minimal continental breakfast. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The rooms are very small and not easy to maneuver in. The restaurant was not open during our stay but they were accommodating providing us a place to meet and play games.

This was our second stay at the Inn and we could not have been happier. The staff was warm and welcoming. Our room was perfect for our family and the beds were very comfortable. Ended with a delicious breakfast. Highly recommend!

We didn't make it in time to eat here but the lady at the hotel desk invited us to look around the hotel at our leisure. She was so hospitable! A charming and historical place. We spoke with a housekeeping attendant who said rooms 208 and 206 used to be haunted! Guests have reported seeing apparitions of a little girl...

We received a AAA discount and a queen room on the first floor. It had a small serviceable bath and nice sized room with antique furnishings. Parking was near the room and decorations were homey and special with lights and greenery. The place has a great feel and it's easy to find yourself transplanted to the 1800s. The bar and...

This was our third visit to the inn, beginning for my son's wedding at Valley View Farm (also fabulous experience!). We've seen it updated without loosing any of its historic feel and charm. First, historic and lovely entry desk moved to adjourning room which was turned into a bar/lounge, complete with firesplace. A delighful upgrade. Dining experience and staff always...

My wife and I stayed at this Inn 3-4 years ago and we had a very pleasant stay and experience, wth the room and dining amenities as to food and ambiance, including a live fire in the dining room. However, when we returned in December 2016, we had a bad experience with the room and food service as to dinner...
