James Laing, a successful coal mine owner, built this stately home in 1904. This lovely three-story stone house features eight bedrooms and six "tigered" oak fireplaces and is listed on the National Historic Register. Mr. Laing developed a friendship with Andrew Carnegie of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was instrumental in securing funds for Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg. Located only one block from the Laing House, Carnegie Hall is an important cultural arts center for Greenbrier County and surrounding communities. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in our elegant dining room before exploring Lewisburg's historic district.

Beautiful house, very friendly and relaxed innkeepers. Tom and Sheila gave great recommendations on where to eat and spend time after dinner. They were also able to give us directions to the local winery and tips for our next visit. Wonderful people, we definitely plan to stay again. Breakfast was very nice, not a hot breakfast, but it wasn't scheduled and we were able to sleep late. The only true disappointment was the fireplace, which was purely for looks and not for use. They also have a lovely indoor/outdoor cat. She stays downstairs and on the back porch, but if one is allergic, this place may not be ideal.
