I will be making another stop at the Booker-Lewis house. It's was amazing, the service the people and the place looks amazing!!

My Retreat

5 on September 24, 2014

I enjoyed my stay at the Booker-Lewis House. The rooms were old fashion like I expect at a bed and breakfast, but very clean and updated with excellent high speed internet and large flat panel TV. The breakfast was great and the service was quick for those who need to make work on time.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for letting us know about your experience and, most importantly, for choosing our property. I'm glad your stay was so enjoyable and look forward to you next visit!


Great Restoration with Charm

3.6 on September 19, 2014

Service at check-in was great! Dining room waitress not so focused, even though not that busy. Would be nice to have iron/ironing board in room, also a functional desk/chair. Overall nice place.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us and for writing about your experience. My Staff loves knowing how we did and we are addressing the observations you pointed out. We do hope to see you again in the near future.

Great Place to stay - Great food - Great service. Very accommodating. More people should look up this place - village life reinvented.

Wow! Thank you for staying with us and for writing this wonderful review. I love the way you described us..."...village life reinvented." It's how we want you to feel when here.


Great B&

We come on business, but really appreciate the great food, antique rooms, and friendliness. Bring your earplugs for the train, but that is part of the charm! We'll be back!

Innkeeper Response
My Staff and I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a great review AND for being our guest. The trains are there...we also feel like they add to the character of our property. See you soon I hope!

4.2 on June 30, 2014

Innkeeper Response

Great curb appeal!

I knew I was going to love this place from the moment I drove up to it. Great old (antebellum, I'm sure) buildings, beautiful grounds. Staff is attentive and friendly. They are polite, kind and respectful without being obsequious. I stayed in one of the suites in the main house the first few nights then moved to one of the property's single-family homes. They have many different types of accommodations. Mine was a spacious 2/2. Full kitchen (decent selection of utensils, pots and pans, etc.), washer and dryer and a nice yard. Right in the middle of an established residential neighborhood. I know that might not be everybody's cup of tea, but it suited me just fine. Fast (and free) wireless Internet at both locations. Interestingly, there are no land lines at either location. I know that's not a big deal in this world of smart phones, but frankly, I prefer them over mobiles. Also of note, perhaps, is that in the main house rooms there are no in-room coffee makers. Again, not a big deal to many and the staff was only too happy to let me wander downstairs to get myself a cup first thing in the morning. Not to mention that I could have availed myself of the free full breakfast if I'd wanted to do so. Wasn't an issue at the Bachelor's Quarters (as stand-alone home is called) since the kitchen is fully equipped. Leesville is in close proximity to Fort Polk/JRTC. Easy to get anywhere on South or North Fort. Getting to the box is a little more of a drive, but I don't think you will find anything closer. There is no doubt whatsoever as to where I will stay during my next trip to West LA.
