“Wonderful Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2008

I just wanted to drop a note to tell you how perfect our stay at this beautiful B & B was earlier this month. Their hospitality is unmatched, the accomodations impeccable. Not only were the rooms and the common areas immaculately prepared, but the little touches like the 24/7 access to snacks, coffee, etc were unexpected and much appreciated. Add to that the personal coffee service to the rooms each morning, the free wi-fi, the very personable staff, and I can't think of a place I'd more likely return to.

If we're ever in the area again, we will definitely stay at the Lion & Rose, and I'll recommend the same to any friends who are considering a trip their way.

We recently stayed in the suite and had a fantastic time. The hosts met us as we arrived and gave us a wonderful tour of the property as well as all the extras available at no charge...snacks, water, soda, fruit, and tolietries. We felt very welcome and safe.

The suite was a fantastic retreat with a large sitting area, room for probably 4-5 adults, a jacuzzi tub, and a gigantic two-person shower. The linens were soft and the pillows were plush, and obviously the owners thought of every nuiance when preparing this room.

Breakfast was ample with fruit, tea, coffee, and a main course. By far one of the best bed and breakfasts we have have stayed in over the past few years.

We spent two nights at the Bed and Breakfast for our first anniversary weekend and really loved it. The house is beautiful and decorated very nicely. The owners have gone out of their way to ensure that your every need is taken care of. Breakfast in the mornings was wonderful, and their dinner recommendations were great. We would HIGHLY recommend The Lion and The Rose.

The Lion and the Rose is one of the finest B&B's we have ever stayed in. Linda and Jim have decorated their home with exquisite taste and every detail is carefully handled, including coffee served to your bedroom door at 8am. We have traveled extensively and stayed at many B&B's and this one exceeds all expectations. The rooms are lovely, nice linens, bath amenities, plenty of light for reading in bed. If you are going to Asheville, this is the place to stay.

The Lion & The Rose is the first B & B my husband and I have ever stayed in. We loved every minute of our time there, from the time we walked in the door and were so warmly greeted by one of our hosts, Linda, to the moment we left, after having one of Jim's remarkable breakfasts. We have traveled extensively and have never had such a superb morning meal anywhere--not to mention the delightful conversation we had with Jim and Linda. The surroundings are just gorgeous, as well...a cozy and beautifully decorated downstairs, and our room was both elegant and comfortable. I have never felt so spoiled in my life!! We didn't want to leave. Anyway, we will definitely stay there when we are in Asheville again--and would highly recommend that YOU do the same!! Terri and Leonard E.

My wife and I have stayed at TL & TR twice and really like everything about it. It's neighborhood Montford, is located near downtown and the highway. We took some really nice walks from there into downtown.
The breakfast is as good as any that I have been served. Seriously. When we stayed the second time Jim offered to make huevos rancheros (my favorite breakfast dish), which I had enjoyed the first visit.
The house and grounds are really nice and they offer movies and snacks for their guests. This is where we will stay when we return.

My wife and I had heard wonderful things about The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast in Asheville,North Carolina.So,we decided to go there on our honeymoon.All the great things we had heard about this beautiful inn were indeed true and surpassed our expectations!
We stayed at The Lion and the Rose for four wonderful nights.It is a beautiful victorian inn and we stayed in the suite which takes up the entire third floor of the inn! While the suite was quite roomy,it was also very cozy.All the rooms in the suite were tastefully elegant and at the same time,the suite was like a home away from home.
Our first morning,we ate our sumptuous breakfast out on the balcony of the suite.This is an option for those who stay in the suite! The other mornings we joined the other guests in the beautiful dining room where the conversation was always stimulating and again the food was delicious! But we always started the day with coffee delivered to our room.My wife and I felt like royalty because that's the way the owners Jim and Linda make you feel!
And now,more about Jim and Linda.They were constantly available to meet our every need.It was like having your own private concierge(s).In addition to maintaining a cabinet with brochures on all to see and do in Asheville,they directed us to some great places to dine and freely gave their input on restaurants and attractions when asked.
Another thing we loved about our stay was that snacks and beverages were available 24 hours a day in the pantry.And,we even had our own snacks and drinks in our fridge in the suite.Talk about being pampered!!!
The grounds of the inn are quite beautiful.And the parlors are relaxing with interesting art and antiques.We later learned that Linda does much of the gardening.And I don't want to forget to mention that Jim is indeed the goumet chef who prepares all the sumptuous food!
I could go on and on,but I would highly suggest that you stay at The Lion and the Rose yourself to experience this wonderful inn and the beautiful town of Asheville! My wife and I will always remember our Honeymoon in Heaven!!!
