My wife and I stayed two nights, May 19th and 20th, on a short visit to the Asheville area. Lisa and Madelyn are the new innkeepers and did a fantastic job of making us feel welcomed and comfortable. We have stayed in a few B&Bs and this one is near the top of our list. I would recommend spending the... More

We enjoyed our stay overall at the Lion and the Rose. It's a beautiful house that is well-maintained with lush gardens and a lovely walk to the downtown Asheville area. The hosts provide a guest pantry and coffee each morning, along with a two-course breakfast. I appreciated that they could accommodate for my gluten-free/grain-free food needs, too. After reading the... More

My wife and I normally stay in hotels when we travel but our family gifted us with a 2 night stay and we loved the extra attention to details, plus the warm homelike atmosphere created by hostesses Madelyn and Lisa. Fresh hot coffee and tea was placed on the upstairs landing about 7:00 AM and the dining room was light... More

The TA reviews are spot on for this place. The home is in splendid condition, squeaky wood floors and all. The owner and daughter were splendid. The mother appears to be the creator of the culinary delights. The daughter brings the infectious smile. Great service, amazingly creative dining and comfortable rooms. This one is a do again.

The Lion and the Rose B&B bills itself as "The Jewel of Montford" and indeed it IS! Located in the Historic District amidst beautifully tended gardens, this beautiful pink Victorian house stands out. As you enter the front door, you see high ceilings, stained glass windows, and gorgeous antiques. You also smell freshly baked cookies, which you are welcomed to... More

My husband surprised me with a trip to Ashville for my birthday and I must say that he did an awesome job. The hostesses (Lisa and Madelyn) were absolutely wonderful. The rooms were well preserved, beautiful and cozy. The best part was having breakfast with people from all over the world from different walks of life. For this reason I... More

Beautiful inn, delicious breakfasts and wonderful hosts are only a few things that can be said about The Lion and The Rose. We enjoyed visiting with people from around the United States over breakfast. After touring Asheville it was nice to return to the inn in the historic district of Montford for a relaxing evening. I would definitely recommend and... More

The inn is just beautiful inside and out, the room was cozy and comfortable, and the breakfasts were ample and delicious. I appreciated the soft sheets and thick towels! Lisa and Madelyn were very friendly and helpful - you wouldn't have guessed that they just took over the inn a few months ago! My mother, sister, and I stayed in... More

Even though they had owned the B&B for only about a month, Lisa and daughter Madelyn had the operation running as smoothly as if they had owned it much longer. The home is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast was as good as one would expect from a 5-star hotel. The cost is most reasonable, and I would definitely stay... More

My visit was a surprise gifted to me by my mother and aunt for my birthday. This was my first visit to a Bed and Breakfast, and based on my treatment by the proprietors, it is an experience that I will definitely be repeating. Their hospitality was wonderful. The food was delicious. I felt I had found a home away... More
