My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B last week. The room was beautifully decorated and featured a large updated bathroom. We were pleased to have coffee and tea brought to our door complimentary each morning half an hour before breakfast. The owners made excellent breakfasts and were able to adjust them to meet our needs. I didn't even... More

Asheville is a great town to visit, and would be even if the Biltmore estate were not there! For our most recent visit, we stayed at the Lion and Rose B&B in the historic Montford area of Asheville. It is convenient to downtown, and has easy freeway access just a few blocks away. The room and bath were nicely decorated... More

We spent a night at the Lion and the Rose to visit Asheville and the Biltmore. It was a lovely old home and our room was spacious, comfortable and made you feel good by just walking through the door. Although the place was full, we never heard even a peep from anyone. There were lots of nice touches, especially coffee... More

We just got back from Asheville and thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Lion & Rose. We loved the Craig-Toms suite on the top floor. Perfect for our wine happy hour on the private balcony overlooking the beautiful entrance to the B&B. Jim & Linda spoil everyone with great breakfasts and wonderful conversation! An added bonus- snacks and... More

My husband and I have stayed in about two dozen B&B's over the years. This one was one of the good ones--very clean, high quality linens/towels/toiletries, nice touches like bottled water, chocolates, and baked goods, coffee brought to our door at 8:00 a.m., good water pressure in the shower, off-street parking, etc. Jim made us a great breakfast with an...

Our second stay. Quality abounds, from a friendly, unpretentious greeting through our (reluctant) departure. Great neighborhood, moments to downtown. Try the Marion Hall room. It will become your favorite. You'll meet the nicest people at breakfast! And remember the food!

We enjoyed our brief weekend stay. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very good, liked the added touch of coffee delivered to our door at 8am. The restaurant recommended to us for dinner was excellent.

I do have pictures of the wonderful breakfast the second day. I forgot the first day. The food was awesome and all the extras were well worth it.There is so much to do in Asheville that we did not have enough time to sit on the porch and enjoy the view .This B&B was pointed out in the Trolley Tour...

We have stayed at many B&B's and Jim and Linda's place rates as one of our all time favorites! Maybe the best! We were welcomed by Linda and shown a tour of the house, which is lovely and beautifully furnished. Our room was perfect - very comfortable and attractive and quiet. We were very impressed with the interesting and unique... More

Stayed at the Lion and Rose this past weekend for a work/vacation 3 day retreat. The inn was beautiful and well cared for. I particularly enjoyed the grounds and wide front porch. I started and ended most days in the relaxing wicker furniture. The owners were friendly and helpful. They readily had suggestions about local eatries and activities. Our room... More
