Built in 1892, by Maj. Thomas W. Lewis, this home holds the spirit of the south. Restorations have taken it back in time where life is a little slower. Sitting atop the hill, overlooking the Cumberland River and miles of farm land, you will find the peace and simplicity of days gone by. This antibellum home invites you to sit on the large columned porch or take a walk to the lake where you can witness wildlife in its natural habitat. We intend to maintain our "country" existance by sharing the farm with you, complete with a good ole southern breakfast. This home is decorated with family heirlooms and antiques, all are designed to be very "touchable", right down to the china used for our meals. Come and sit a spell, and soak in the feeling of home without the worries!!
The history of this 2nd floor room holds special meaning. Long ago when the river boats would park at Lewis Landing just below the house, Maj. Lewis would rent this horse themed room out to the dock hands for a restful night off the boat. Back then it would sleep 7 men, hence called the #7 room. Today we have added a queen size bed,suitable for a couple, or include the family and sleep on one of the two adult size bunks. These bunks were crafted from the remains of the old smoke house which was located right out back. A private bath includes a walk in shower.

We reserved the Lyle Room for the Valentine Special and was the dinner ever special as well as the room? Mandy goes all out to cook what ever you order off the menu with plentiful helpings and little extras that make it a feast to remember. We were fascinated by the history of this house and Mandy's effort to preserve the history while rehabilitating the structure. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mandy's stories as she made herself available for a house tour. We found our room comfortable and the king size bed with a good mattress. We highly recommend this inn and the experience of meeting Mandy. Van Burens

A very beautiful setting for a weekend getaway or any occasion. Mandy treated us like family and took care of our every need. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The meals that Mandy prepared were excellent and brought back memories of my mothers cooking. I would strongly recommend Lylewood to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway or a special occasion.

This was the most wonderful place! Mandy and Steve are awesome! We stayed in Zanie's Room. It was so nice and clean. The food was wonderful and we felt like we lived there. They treated us like we were family. If you are looking for a great place to stay in the country with an awesome view, this is it. You'll even get a concert at night from the crickets, frogs, birds, and God's other creatures.

I am a little late in writing this review as I stayed here in March. The two nights stay was amazing. We arrived and were the only guests for both nights. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the house and property. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. In the morning a wonderful breakfast was prepared. Mandy is an incredible owner and is very welcoming. We have already planned another trip in August, and I cannot wait!! Definitely recommend this B&B if you are in the area and need an affordable, comfortable place to stay.

We were fortunate to stay at the Lylewood Inn. What a beautiful place to spend the night. The home with the history, food, rooms and wonderful owner made it a great night. Well worth the drive out to see it and stay the night!

Although travel weary when we arrived, you welcomed the five of us to your beautifully restored home of a bygone era. Your large array of prepared from scratch dishes that you served for both dinner and breakfast exceeded our expectations. How you can garden, can, bake and continually care for this early 1800's home and continually welcome new guests is amazing. I'd recommend this experience to anyone interested in stepping back in time, wanting genuine hospitality as you showed us, and wholesome food in a quiet, country setting. You greeted us like family. Thank you Mandy. Perhaps we'll come that way again some day.

My sister and I stayed for 4 days and we loved it. I have never felt more comforable in someone else's home since my visits to grandma's house. Thank you!

We love this B&B. It was our second time here. Lylewood Inn, a gracious southern home is relaxing. Mandy is very accommodating and a wonderful cook I love it here, its soooo peaceful. Enjoyed the new touches and improvements added since last time we stayed. Purchased Jams & Jelly to share with family and co-workers. Delicious! Excellent value, worth the drive off the main highway. Love the Peacock! Will be back God Willing

I love to cook and love my animals. I have visited many bed and breakfast, and always felt some were lacking in the personal touch. I want people to feel they are part of the family while here. I have always lived my life sharing my home with others, so this is no new feat for me. I enjoy folks who come my way and enjoy the simple things while taking time to get away from it all. This is my haven of peace God has blessed me with and I want to share it with you.
