My family nearly rented out the entire place for the weekend! We had an absolute amazing time and LOVED staying here. My boyfriend and I can't wait to come back!! Oh, the breakfast was AMAZING! I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Asheville, NC!

My husband and I stayed at The Lion and the Rose during the early part of July and we were not disappointed. We have stayed in many B&Bs and this ranks as one of my favorites. The tour of the home when we walked in, the brochures of area attractions, the Butler's pantry filled with snacks and beverages, the morning...

Our visit to Asheville was enhanced by this B&B. Beautiful home and gardens, quiet neighborhood, clean and inviting. We stayed on the third floor and it was a little slice of heaven. We thought after the first night we had the house to ourselves only to find at breakfast a full house. That is how quiet it is. I am...

We spent a very enjoyable 2 days at the inn. Jim and Linda were exceptionally friendly. Breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious. The inn was very nicely furnished with a beautiful garden and front porch. Jim gave us great recommendations for dinner and suggestions for things to do in the area.

We traveled as a group of five couples who have been close friends for over 40 years. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The property was impeccably clean, furnished with wonderful period furniture and accessories, and offered all amenties one could possibly expect from a B&B including, but not limited to. incredibly delicious breakfasts that lasted us...

Beautifully decorated with period pieces and comfortable beds and linens make the Lion and the Rose a wonderful stay. superb breakfasts and good suggestions for local dining add to the appeal. The bathrooms are small, as one would imagine from a house built in 1895, but the historical setting more than makes up for it! the garden and porch provide...

Wonderful atmosphere, terrific accomodations, awesome breakfast. Jim and Linda provided a perfect balance of being extremely welcoming and helpful and then allowing one to enjoy their B&B in privacy. Incredibly gracious and generous hosts!

10. The proprietors, Jim and Linda, serve A-Mazing breakfasts. They're far better than you'd expect to find in a restaurant. Plus, Jim is extremely accommodating of food allergies. He made me some killer gluten-free crepes--the first I've had in 3 years! 9. Asheville is amazing--like a little Boulder, CO of the south--and just by choosing this as your destination, you're...

My husband and I were lucky to find the Lion and the Rose B&B when we were searching for a place to stay. This B&B is a beautiful Victorian home filled with antiques.

We stay in a lot of B&B's and this may have been the nicest. The house is beautifully and elegantly decorated. The common areas are plentiful, roomy, and nicely furnished. The large wrap-around porch is inviting and beautiful. The grounds are just gorgeous and include a charming outdoor fountain and shaded sitting area. The rooms are comfortable and accommodating.
