Major interior renovations underway at  Lambuth Inn!

The renovations will upgrade the design to the modern expectations of guest comfort, while preserving the historic charm. When Lambuth Inn reopens in April, you can expect to see period furniture to match the 1920s architecture, new mattresses and bedding, and updated carpets, wall hangings and drapery. We will also add modern conveniences such as refrigerators, walk-in showers and wooden floors in the parlor.

Approx. 20 rooms will not be renovated in the middle back section of the hotel. These rooms will receive an upgrade in bedding, but will remain otherwise the same. They will be sold at a lower price point than the 100 renovated rooms. 

Renovation Update


The renovation of Lambuth Inn is proceeding on schedule! Fresh paint and carpeting have been added throughout the main lobby, dining room and the east wing of guest rooms. Guest rooms have new light fixtures, carpet, wall paneling and bathroom fixtures.

The first guests experienced the partial renovation on Friday, April 13. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Tuesday, May 22, but reservations will begin taking bookings on May 1 - so don't miss your chance to see the transformation of this historic inn!
