Warm, cozy, and inviting, the General Lewis Inn has been hosting guests for more than 80 years.

General Lewis Inn -- Lewisburg, W.V.

This historic inn was originally built in the early 1800s as a single-family residence. (Today, this where you’ll find the dining room, kitchen, and suite of several rooms on the first and second floors.) It is surrounded by lush mountainsides and flowing streams, while offering nearby golf courses and shopping in downtown Lewisburg. Price: $2,700,000

Own a piece of history when you own this historic Kansas hotel.

Cimarron Hotel -- Cimarron, Kan.

Built in 1886 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, this hotel has served as a residence, restaurant, and bed-and-breakfast. Within its walls, you’re sure to find captivating stories about nearby Dodge City’s Wild West days and tales from the historic Santa Fe Trail, as Cimarron was a notorious branch point of the trail. Price: $385,000

In need of a little love and care, the Old Ashburn Hotel has great reuse potential.

The Old Ashburn Hotel -- Ashburn, Va.

Built in the 1860s, this Victorian gem is the perfect property for a fixer-upper. The 10-bedroom house still has many of its original architectural details, including moldings, built-ins, and mantels. Restore and return it to a hotel, or a grand historic home, bed-and-breakfast, or even a library -- the possibilities are endless! Price: $780,000

    I have had the pleasure of eating at the General Lewis Inn and it has an incredible collection of Civil War memorabilia. It would make a great investment due to its close proximity to the Greenbriar. I can only dream!
