My husband & I & two of our friends spent New Year' Eve @ the Lion & the Rose. The location of the inn is just a short drive from downtown Asheville and the Biltmore. We were warmly greeted by Kelly & given a tour, including the pantry which was well stocked with snacks, home made cookies, bottled water, soft drinks, tea & coffee. Our rooms were cozy & comfortable & had wonderful pieces of art and furniture. We later met Jim & Linda Palmer who are very gracious hosts. Jim prepared an amazing breakfast. We forgot an article of clothing & Linda called us shortly after we left & offered to mail it to us. We had such a good time we found it hard to leave. We will definitely recommend Lion & the Rose to our friends.
