Booked the entire house for two days for my wedding party to get ready at and for us to stay at our wedding night (6 months in advance). I had a few questions and tried reaching out to the owner... Terrible, absolutely horrible communication... (Called and left 15+ voicemails, sent emails, etc with NO response). Finally made the call that... More

While visiting in Ruston, Louisiana, October 17-20, 2014, our family, my husband and I, made an "Eleventh Hour" decision to treat ourselves to a "Getaway" for a couple of nights at a local Bed and Breakfast I located online, www.The VictorianLewisHouse.com for The Lewis House Victorian Bed and Breakfast, Tea Room and Gift Shoppe; 318-255-3848. It is needless to say,... More

Even though our expected arrival time changed three times due to road repairs on I-20, we were still warmly welcomed by Christopher. We were given brochures about Ruston, history of The Lewis House and suggested places to eat. Our room was the Majestic and was invitingly decorated. The bed was wonderful.

Selected Lewis House B&B for overnight stay in Ruston. So much more to offer than traditional motel chain. CJ called to see if we would arrive by 3 pm tea time. We arrived and were treated to a formal tea setting in the parlor. Great flavored tea with cookie sampler. The renovation of this 1900-built home is first class. We... More

The place was not clean and the owner is difficult to work with. It is over-priced considering the out-dated facilities and the moderate breakfast. We will never stay there again. I suggest staying some place in West Monroe, which is 30 minutes away.

However, I find this review very unbelievable and malicious especially considering we are always very accommodating and we are very known for our very elegant abundant breakfast. But... More
