Several of the hotels and B&Bs we checked were sold out for the weekend, but we were lucky enough to find a room at A Bed of Roses. The location was great - within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, our room was clean... More

My husband and I settled on A Bed of Roses, after being shocked by hotel prices of Asheville. The Oliver Davis room was intimate, charming and clean. It is up a narrow, almost secret feeling staircase, so pack accordingly if you choose this room. It's about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from downtown. My husband and I... More

Enjoyed a very comfortable stay in this charming Victorian B&B. Our friendly hosts were very helpful with directions and recommendations. Breakfasts were yummy and filling and beautifully presented. And our host was very accommodating of my dietary limitations. The inn is located in a residential neighborhood within a 15 minute walk of downtown shops and restaurants.
