The best breakfast we've eaten in a long time with fresh locally farmed ingredients! The omelets were super yummy and the homemade potatoe sides were to die for! We're ready to plan a return trip to stay in the Inn next time!

Came here with friends, old and new, to spend a pleasant Sunday morning. Waffles were good, but the treat was real, freshly squeezed orange juice. Service a bit inattentive, but Sunday brunch is a busy time.

I do not believe the General Lewis Inn would be large enough. From our visit, I'd suggest the Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, only 10 miles away.
