The Lewis House: Victorian Bed and Breakfast

5 on June 17, 2014

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!!


Romantic Stay

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.

Innkeeper Response
We always do serve a traditional morning breakfast of eggs, maple sausage/turkey sausage, toast/biscuits, fresh fruit, cherry cheese Danish or other dessert to top breakfast off as well as dark roast coffee, assortment of tea, ice water, juice, and milk. We are very known for customizing our guest's breakfast to their diet upon request which is included in every email confirmation. We have many guests who don't eat pork, egg whites only, organic only, or may be diabetic which we ask you inform us upon receiving your email confirmation. We are very much a custom special treatment Bed & Breakfast but we cannot read minds. We do serve a traditional breakfast but it is hardly common, traditional yes, and is always served on our royal Albert fine china and elegant decor at a majestic grand dining table. Our guests just ring the bell for immediate attention. Breakfast is also served at a set time which is also flexible per guests so the eggs are never cold and everything is prepared fresh, so it also helps when guests communicate to us exactly when they want breakfast and any other special requirements because we so love to please our guests which in turn makes everyone happy! I remember this couple arrived very late to breakfast and had told us nothing about any diet restrictions etc... Honestly I am glad their eggs were not cold hopefully they will return again so we can make them feel more special and they are a nice couple.


Wonderful Romantic Getaway

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.


Everything was great!
