The Lion and the Rose is a beautiful bed and breakfast in the historic Montford district, which is within walking distance of downtown Asheville. The innkeepers, Lisa and her daughter Madelyn, are warm, friendly, and always ready with recommendations for places to eat. The breakfasts are outstanding. We stayed eight days and Lisa always prepared something different. Their porch is... More

My husband and I stayed at The Lion and The Rose in June. Our stay was perfect! My husband is gluten intolerant and I am a vegetarian - no small order - but Lisa created a wonderful breakfast to suit each of us. We stayed in the third floor suite (the suite encompasses the entire third floor), which allowed plenty... More

We stayed at the Lion and the Rose for three nights. The inn was mostly full, yet we heard very little from our other house-guests. Lisa and Madelyn were very accommodating, laid back, and excellent hosts (they moved up breakfast on the day of our departure to help out.) The inn is very clean and well-decorated. It's a short drive... More

Everything about The Lion and the Rose is outstanding. Rooms are clean with beautiful antique furniture. Breakfasts are gourmet and very large servings. I loved the morning coffee in the hallway outside the room. We also appreciated that the bedroom was well lit for reading. The Nine Mile Restaurant and the Italian restaurant Chiasa were a short walk. There is... More

We stayed at the Lion and the Rose for four nights, and could not have been happier with the accommodation and service. Lisa and Maddie are doing a terrific job, the place is impeccably kept, and Breakfast is wonderful. Besides coffee /tea and juice, there was always something ready (scotch eggs? Big hit!) to keep you fed while Lisa is... More

This was our first visit at this B&B. The owners are so friendly and welcoming! Lovely, comfortable and quiet! Fresh coffee outside the rooms each morning and the breakfasts were delicious! We so enjoyed our stay here.

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
