Emily and Bill were gracious and wonderful hosts. They made you feel welcome and were knowledgeable of the Asheville area, providing great recommendations on events, activities and food. The house was clean, well maintained and it's location on a quiet street in a historic neighborhood made it an ideal place to stay. The breakfast that Emily and Bill prepared was... More

This B&B was a wonderful place to stay. Emily and Bill were pleasant and helpful. They had the unique quality of being there when you needed them and allowing you space when you wanted to be on your own. The Wilkinson room was cozy, but very clean. The breakfasts were amazing! They cooked an enormous amount of food. You started... More

We've stayed in B&Bs for years (decades). We much prefer them to hotels. And this is the kind of B&B we like - a historic property, a comfortable room, in a good location, with warm and friendly hosts. AND the bonus of an incredible breakfast. You wouldn't think you could make a waffle special, but my wife said that they... More

We stayed in the Carolyn Grey room on the first floor. Generally, we like upper rooms to get away from the bustle of the common areas, but we never had any problem here. It was the large whirpool tub that really sold us and we were not disappointed. Emily and Bill were excellent sources of hospitality, grace, and a wealth... More

Our stay in the Turret Room was the perfect way to relax and celebrate our anniversary. Bill and Emily are friendly, relaxing hosts who start the day by serving a deliciously healthy breakfast. I'm still thinking about the Dutch Baby, ginger-snap pear with walnuts and bottomless coffee cup. The inn is in walking distance of Nine Mile, a Montford neighborhood... More

We had a very pleasant stay - Emily and Bill accommodated my dietary request flawlessly and deliciously (vegan). We spent two evenings walking from the B&B exploring downtown and hopped onto the Parkway to enjoy a scenic drive in the mountains. The room was comfortable, clean and cozy. We'd definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at this Asheville B&B for a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary. Our goal was to explore the nearby mountains and streams by day and walk to downtown Asheville for dinner at night. The Bed of Roses proved a perfect location. It's a pleasant walk through the historic neighborhood to reach downtown and a... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at A Bed of Roses! So many people enjoy our littlest room. We call it our "little nest". It is definitely "cozy" but we try to make it a comfy little retreat for our guests! More

We heard nice things about A Bed of Roses so we stayed there. First off Emily & Bill are delightful people, they add a warm natural feeling to the B & B, next... More

The location was very convenient to downtown as well as Biltmore. The hosts made every effort to meet our needs. They provided directions and gave an overall perspective on Asheville. The breakfasts were wonderful. The B&B was beautiful located in an attractive quite neighborhood. Our room and other areas were clean and comfortable. Overall, a great visit.
