My wife and I decided on a last minute trip out of town. At midnight the night before, we found the Lewis House online. To our surprise, rooms were available. We booked The Majestic Suite and had confirmation first thing the next morning. We were surprised to find out we were the only couple there. We enjoyed a nice quiet breakfast and visit with CJ, the owner. We definitely plan on staying again.
What a wonderful place to stay!! Perfect in all aspects ~ from the refurbishing of this Lewis home back to its original historical grandeur Victorian style ... to the warm welcoming of Christopher and his awesome tea in the Tea Room to the smell of roasting coffee and hot breakfast in the morning on beautiful Rose China. But I think my favorite thing of all was starting my day off with coffee and the swing on the side porch and the smell of fresh rain all around me.
This was our first time at a bed and breakfast.Our experience was so delightful , that we have been telling all our friends and family about it.The owners son,Christopher, greeted us with the best tea we have ever tasted.It was like going back in time.The house was restored to it's original splendor.The owner offered packages to make your occasion special,which my husband purchased all that was offered and Wow!!! Did they deliver!!! The owner was so sweet and accommodating. We really don't know how another bed and breakfast could top this experience for us.It was wonderful!!
My Boyfriend and I chose this inn because of its locality to the Landry Winery. The inn had a antique Victorian feel and our room was grand! Ruston, Louisiana has quaint eateries and shopping that for our tastes! I have stayed at B&B before and was disappointed at the morning cuisine. It was a common breakfast consisting of eggs, biscuits and sausage. I'm used to being served a more unique dish for the morning meal. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Additionally, this inn allows for one night stays which fit our travel plans perfectly.
My wife and I stayed in the Majestic Suite for our anniversary. It was exquisite. The extra add ons were perfect and very reasonably priced. We loved how it felt like home. We were able to come and go whenever. We woke up to the smell of a delicious breakfast cooking. It was outstanding. We loved the stay and look forward to when we can stay there again. If you want a romantic getaway choose the Majestic.
This place is beyond wonderful. From the minute I checked in, to the minute I checked out, it was dreamlike. No detail left unturned. It is a two-story Victorian home. I stayed in the professors suite. This is the downstairs bedroom. i highly recommend the suites over the rooms, as they have private baths. All the doors have keyless entry, so there is no worry about carrying keys around. The rolling backyard is simply beautiful with a gazebo and comfortable sitting area. The front porch is large with two comfortable sitting areas and a swing. The back porch is small and cozy. Just enough to get out of the wind. The location is absolutely awesome. It is situated right downtown in walking distance to Restaurants, theater, gift shops, even auto parts store (Which, by the way I was extremely grateful for! Lol!) I had looked online and booked. Three bed-and-breakfast's came up. When I was there, I drove by the other two and was very, very glad I had chosen the Lewis house. They are both a couple miles from town. One didn't even seem to be operational.
We went there for an anniversary because neither of us have ever stayed in a bed and breakfast before. We were both pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was. The rooms were awesome especially with the claw foot bathtub. It was a very special occasion and this stay made it even more special. We loved the entire atmosphere. We now have a new tradition at our house of tea in the afternoon.
Property was well maintained and room was very nice as advertised. Property location was a bit sketchy, very different from the neighboring properties. Regardless, we had no issues with the neighbors. We booked the room on a short (2 day notice), which the owner accommodated (good thing). When we arrived to check in, owner seemed more interested in leaving than in getting us settled in (not so good). Advertised breakfast time is 9:00 am, which didn't meet our schedule. Owner didn't offer to serve an earlier breakfast to accommodate us, and we were the only guests staying there (not so good). We could serve ourselves with whatever we could find in the kitchen. I just felt like the stay wasn't a good value for our money.
My wife and I stayed at the Lewis House and it was like a dream come true! Very beautiful and relaxing. We had great service and the house was very warm and cozy. We plan on return again in the near future. Excellent Bed & Breakfast!!!
Excellent service provided by owner of The Lewis House. Like the fact that they allow children. My 10-year-old daughter loved it. Great breakfast the morning of our departure. Would stay here again if visiting near Ruston.
My wife and i made a day trip to Poverty Point National Park in North Louisiana and were looking for a bed and breakfast to spend the night before driving back home the next day. The Lewis house was the perfect choice! Great location in downtown shopping area and the accommodations, service and breakfast were outstanding! i would highly recommend this lovely Victorian! We felt right at home!
We only had a one night stay and came in late and left early. But it felt welcoming with everything ready for us. Room was very clean and comfortable. Anything you might need from personal hygiene to snacks were readily available. A substantial breakfast to go bag was in the fridge for our early departure. The only thing important to know is that the professors suite is only room on ground floor and its bath's claw foot tub/shower sits really high. Might be important for some to know. It was a great visit!
This was our third time to visit Ruston to visit our daughter while she attends LA and to stay at The Lewis House. We thoroughly enjoy the breakfasts, the rooms which are large and comfortable. We enjoy being able to easily to walk to downtown and even the university if we want.
On the night all of American Airlines was grounded, we planned a stay at The Lewis House. CJ stayed in contact with us by phone knowing we would be driving from Dallas and arrive late. We had no difficulty accessing the room and slept better that night in the Professor Suite than the night before in a pricey 4-star. The breakfast was delicious and the dining room exquisitely set. The Lewis House is conveniently located to shops and other restaurants and is an ideal option for those needing accommodations for LA Tech graduations or events. Next time we plan to stay in Majestic Suite or Mallard's Nest. Thank you for your gracious hospitality!
My wife and I decided to get away during her spring break and saw an advertisement fo the Lewis House and decided to try it. So glad that we did. From teh First time that I talked to CJ I knew that customer service was her strength and that the visit was going to be a good one. She even called while we were driving to wish us a safe trip! The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated and we spent alot of time looking at all of the beautiful furnishings in the other areas of the house as well as the gift items that were on display. The location was very convenient to all that we wanted to do in Ruston. We'll definitely be back.
