“very romantic getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

my review is very late (we honeymooned here in 2009), but I have to give this place its kudos... we were married feb 2009 so the snow made this a cozy trip. The room was beautifully decorated, and the jacuzzi was awesome.. the innkeepers at the time were Ms. Janis and her husband(I forget his name).. I understand now that there are new innkeepers.. we look forward to meeting them.. we plan to return in 2013.

What a surprise to hear from guests who stayed here before we owned the inn! Janis and Chris will be thrilled to hear you enjoyed the A Bed of Roses so much. We hope you enjoy it just as much when you return. We've added some "new" antiques and made some changes, but Janis trained us well and we still even use some of her recipes! We'll look forward to meeting you.

Bill and Emily (innkeepers) were such a warm and gracious host and hostess for our two nights in Asheville. Breakfast was delicious (we're talking prosciutto and fluffy eggs in ramekins, mango/peach crunch, blackbean cornbread, etc etc etc). She also always had out homemade chocolate chip walnut cookies available in the kitchen, with tea/coffe/lemonade/ice water available 24/7. Tea was served in fancy teacups and it just tasted better that way! Our room, "the nest", was up a narrow staircase to the 2nd floor. It was a quaint, small room that in our minds was the best. It was away from the main floor and quiet. We kept the windows open all weekend as it was cool there. Just beautiful. Just a note to help you out...if you're a large person or pack a lot of luggage, you will probably have trouble getting up the stairwell and maybe getting in the door to the room. We're small people and found it tight. Totally worth it though...great whirpool, jetted tub...robes to lounge in, fresh flowers, candy left on the nightstand, bath salts, etc. The bed is a full size but very comfy. The room was clean and well-decorated. There is a small tv, which my husband was happy about for football games at night. :)The porch and gardens around the house are beautiful and the resident kitties were sweet (one is blind). The house is about a 15 minute walk to downtown and helped us work off those wonderful breakfasts!! Thanks Bed of Roses...we'll be back!

Thanks so much for your review and for posting the great pictures. I love the one of Sasha in the window! I also love hearing that guests staying in our smallest room enjoy their experience just as much as those staying in the Turret Suite. It means a lot to us. We hope you make it back soon!

So many thanks to Bill and Emily for helping making our 5th anniversary so special. The B&B was beautiful, breakfast was delicious (I needneedneed the blueberry strata recipe), and the room was great. We got one of the packages (champagne, chocolates, and a reservation/gift certificate for dinner in town) and it was such a great surprise to see the look on my wife's face when we got to the room. Bill & Emily take such good care of their guests, and are so welcoming. They were very helpful in orienting us the Asheville area/things to do/places to eat/etc. It was a pleasure to be there. We took advantage of the location to walk to downtown on Friday after we got in - it's only about 3/4 of a mile, and very convenient to not have to worry about parking.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Carolyn Grey room, and it was very nice. Even though it was on the first floor, the...

I am so happy I found & booked Bed of Roses. Our stay was a delight! Emily & Bill were very professional and helpful to our first stay in Asheville. Since the Inn is only a couple of blocks from the visitors' center & Downtown, it was that much more of a find. Our room was very clean & comfortable. Although I chose the smallest of all the rooms, it had a wonderful jacuzzi tub for rejuvenating after all day of touring. Emily's breakfasts were picture perfect as well as filling & nutritious. Being right outside of the Historic District, it was the most charming & best located place to stay.

Room Tip: Upon returning to this B&B, I will choose a bigger room due to the exceedingly narrow, steep sta...

We have just returned from our trip to the US - and stayed in this B&B for 3 nights.
Had a very warm welcome. Room was decorated lovely and was very clean.
Breakfast was amazing and we loved our stay.
Town was a short 15 min walk away
One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in
Would recommend to anyone

I found A Bed of Roses on the internet and our stay was fabulous. My husband and I always try to stay at B & B's when we are traveling for pleasure and this place was top notch. Our room looked good on the internet and was even more impressive when we arrived. The inn keepers gave us great recommendations for restaurants, the breakfast was flavorful and filling, the coffee was delicious and we could not have asked for a more relaxing place to spend our 5 year wedding anniversary. We stayed 3 nights and would definitely stay here again. It's in a great location, a quick 5 minute drive to down town or 10-15 minutes and you can be at the gates to the Biltmore Estate. I highly recommend a Bed of Roses!!

My husband and I just returned from our stay at A Bed of Roses and we loved our stay here. Emily and Bill were wonderful innkeepers and made us feel very welcome. The accommodations were beautiful and were everything we could have ever wanted. We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Wilkinson Room and loved it!
