Wonderful stay at The Lewis House

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at The Lewis House and are looking forward to our next visit to Ruston and The Lewis House.

Wonderful restoration of a gem of a house

We stayed in the Majestic Suite with ensuite bathroom, claw foot tub and canopy bed. Very romantic. Highly recommend this for special occasions. Breakfast was great and enough food for an army. We even lingered a little after breakfast to enjoy reading and planning our day on the front porch. The bed is very comfy and the house has been lovingly and carefully restored. We found in our research that bed and breakfast accommodations are few and far between in this area. Lewis House should definitely be on your list.

Last Minute Stay

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.

Best B & B experiance ever!

Lovely home and lovely rooms! CJ was an absolute pleasure to stay with. By far the best B & B experience ever!

If you're looking for a quiet place to stay in a Historic Town and B&B ... this is the place to be.

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.

Great B&B in quaint town

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!!
