My wife and I attended a company meeting in Asheville, NC June 2 - 6 and wanted to spend the weekend after in the area to do some sightseeing. After looking on the net for B&B's on various sites (with the first being TRIPADVISOR), we settled on "A Bed of Roses". It was a very good choice. There are other B&B's which were not much less but this one seemed to have a unique charm. It didn't hurt that my wife fell in love with the Turret Suite, their best room. We booked that Saturday and Sunday nights. The suite has a queen bed in the turret room, and a beautiful bath with jacuzzi tub for two separates the sitting room with a private balcony. Upon arrival Janice, one of the owners, met us and showed us around the house and to our room. During our stay, she was a fountain of knowledge regarding the area and about this Victorian house which was built in 1897 and lovingly restored by Janice and Chris. Breakfast was elegant, sumptuous, and tasty although with anyone having plans, the 9:00am time was late in my opinion (8:00am - 8:30am would have been better for our plans). Coffee was always ready at 7:30am though for earlier risers. The location is within walking distance of downtown and the artisan shops so famous in Asheville. Log on to <www.abedofroses.com> and check them out. Also, if you want to have a very memorable dinner check out my review of the Savoy Restaurant.
