“Awesome B & B”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We spent three nights at the Lion and the Rose in
Asheville, and had a wonderful stay. Linda and Jim are lovely people, and we feel that we have made new friends. The inn is beautiful with antiques, and beauty are around you. The breakfasts were amazing. The room was lovely, clean and very comfortable. We highly recommend this B & B.

My husband and I stayed in the Craig Toms Suite this past week and we cannot say enough good things about it! The room was sparkling clean, superbly decorated and extremely comfortable. The Innkeepers could not have been nicer or more gracious. My husband and I had to check out very early and the innkeepers were kind enough to make us a delicious breakfast to take with us. The breakfast was fantastic! We will definitely stay at this B&B again the next time we come to Asheville.

We had a couple of nights in Asheville and stayed at the Lion & Rose which is a beautiful property set in lovely grounds.Jim and Linda were very welcoming hosts and have thought of everything to ensure a pleasant visit.Breakfasts are plentiful and creative.
One of the best reasons to stay at the Lion & Rose is the restaurant about a 2 minute walk away 'The Nine Mile' which we felt was the best food we've ever eaten on our many travels to the USA.It is outstanding

We had a wonderful experience at The Lion and the Rose. The B&B is beautiful - both inside and out. The location is great - an easy walk to the downtown area. And to make it even better, there is a fun restaurant on the way (The Nine Mile) that has Caribbean food to die for. The hosts (Linda and Jim) went out of their way at every turn to make our stay fun and memorable. They were a wealth of information and readily shared it. Breakfasts were creative and delicious. There were always snacks in the pantry for the late nite muchies and chocolate goodies were everywhere in the house. A tray with coffee was delivered to our room every morning. Rooms were spotless and wonderfully decorated. An overall great experience!!!!

Beautiful historic home with lovely grounds in a well cared for historic neighborhood close to downtown and highways. Fabulous (and fattening!) breakfasts. We were able to buy a same-day ticket to Biltmore at a discount and they even offered to do our laundry when they learned of our need (note that they might not have been able to if they had been busier). We also enjoyed nice conversation with the other couples at the dining room table.

Overall, we had a great time at The Lion and the Rose. The location is great, very close to downtown. The property itself is very nice; the rooms are pretty and clean, and the garden is a great place to relax. I enjoyed our breakfast every morning, and the coffee and tea served to our door every morning.
