I loved the spindle beds. They reminded me of my granny's. And there were comfy comforters but I had to let the Queen Bed Tester, Amelie, try out my mattress. She clearly approved.
with flowers!So who was General Andrew Lewis? (Info lifted from the Inn's website) - "Andrew Lewis, for whom this historic Inn and the town of Lewisburg are named, served as one of George Washington's principal officers in the Virginia Regiment during the French & Indian War and, in the words of George Washington biographer Douglas Southall Freeman, was unquestionably the hardest-working officer of the Regiment."

One evening, we also experienced the candle lit Lewisburg Ghost Tour. Although not as spooky as I was expecting, it actually turned out to be a fascinating historical expedition of the town.
And to get a taste (or sip) of the local nightlife, we slipped into The Irish Pub. Here I am in deep discussion with Josh. I had asked him, "What is the name of this Irish Pub?" and he answered, "The Irish Pub." Easy enough.

Actually, Lewisburg is Josh's hometown and he was kind enough to put together our amazing itinerary. And although he was hoping we'd get a taste of the traditional Irish folk songs, often being sung by its quirky owner, the night we dropped in there was a game of Medical Trivia being played by the WV School of Osteopathic Medicine students. But we did get to experience local brews by both Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company and the Mountain State Brewing Company.
And on the last night of our visit, we decided to have dinner in the General Lewis' restaurant, the Jefferson Dining Room. But first, we ordered smart cocktails at the Thistle Bar...

Family feedback in regards to the General Lewis Inn? We'd all come back and stay again...in a heartbeat. As for Lewisburg and everything that Josh put together?...Fantastic trip!
