“Marvelous and charming stay in Asheville!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Just returned from our trip in Asheville and stay at The Lion and The Rose was a wonderful experience. We arrived half hour earlier and were greeted graciously by Jim and Linda(a wonderful couple). This property is more than 100 years old. The B&B is beautiful with antiques. We chose to stay in the Marion room which was too comfortable and immaculate. Its the biggest room in the in.This room had beautiful antiques, a lovely fireplace and a sitting area with beautiful views to watch movie or read books. Jim and Linda provided all the amenities you would require especially loved their pantry with all the unlimited supply of cookies,brownies,tea,coffee,soft drinks and not to forget you can help yourselves with complementary Port and sherry!! Linda is such a adorable person she helped me to reheat my food and we had a little chit chat, Jim served us with scrumptious breakfast. This B&B is perfect for Honeymooners.Our whole stay was lovely and i would definitely return back

Room Tip: Marion Hall was the largest room with all amenities available. Perfect for honeymooners.

We visited just before Halloween, which Jim and Linda celebrate famously. Our 2
-day visit with a cousin was fabulous. Delicious breakfasts, beautiful accommodations - everything was great! No downsides!

Felt like home right from the start, the attention to detail was amazing! We had a larger room with TV / Daybed area & working fireplace which made it so cozy & homey. Especially liked the "guest pantry" and access to the first floor - very nice. Breakfast a bit heavy, would be nice to add a "lighter" option...Great location, all in all, the nicest B&B we've stayed in. Hope to return someday...

Room Tip: Marion Hall room was excellent

After reading the other 5 star reviews, I don't have anything to add. We spent 3 nights here and felt very welcome. All the added touches, chocolate, robes, bottled water and other snacks made it even more special. Each night we enjoyed a glass of sherry or port in the living area before climbing the stairs to bed.

Innkeepers Jim and Linda know how to pamper guests - including delivering coffee and tea to your room as you wake up. Breakfast was delicious - a different menu each day. One of the best B&Bs I have experienced. Rooms were very comfortable with many delightful amenities. Location is ideal for walking to town.

Room Tip: Entire 3rd floor is perfect for 3 adults - spacious, comfortable rooms, private bath, balcony.

The home is gorgeous with lots of history! Jim and Linda are perfect hosts, always there with the extra touch...snacks 24/7, coffee outside the door in the morning. We had to leave very early on the last day of our stay and Jim got up early to brew coffee and pack breakfast for us. We stayed in the Marion Hall room, which was gorgeous and spacious.

The robes were wonderful and lucious... the treats in the room were just lovely... as everyone says the pantry for snacking is great... we were able to walk everywhere!!! the weather even helped out by being sunny the whole time. One cannot go wrong at this bed and breakfast... food, guests and hosts were all perfect.... thanks...
