We had a wonderful stay at the inn. The top floor suite was lovely, the bed comfortable, and the hosts as friendly as can be. The Inn is walkable from downtown, about 20 minutes, but we had a car anyway - on-site parking, and probably 3 minutes to downtown by car. Can't recommend the Lion and the Rose enough, and...

Steve the inn keeper was amazing! He was there watching over the Inn while the owners were out of town. He is a great Chef and is very personable at the same time. The Inn it self is well kept for being built in 1889. The room and property was very comfortable also. This was our first anniversary and the...

We found The Lion and The Rose to be a so-so place--great location, friendly folks, but low average accomodations and food. Our room was pleasant, but the bed mattress was old and uncomfortable. Coffee was available early (and was good) but breakfast was simply not good. Unlike many B & Bs in the Asheville area, there was no social time/wine/etc....

Thank you for taking the time to review our inn, and we appreciate you choosing us for your stay in Asheville. I am sorry I was not here to meet you, I had planned a few days away before the fall rush. A three star review for us is rare and definitely affects our ranking, but I appreciate your honesty...

This B&B is a treat. Located in the Montford historic district (surrounded by beautiful homes and lush landscaping), it's a short (15-min.) walk to downtown Asheville. We stayed in the Fannie Rice Room on the 2nd floor. The furnishings were lovely, the AC in the room functioned very well, and we heard essentially no noise. Breakfast is at 9 am...

Beautiful and spotless furnishings. Attentive and gracious hosts. Epicurean breakfasts. And a location on a pleasant street that's a short drive or a 15-minute walk to downtown. If you're searching for a pleasant and memorable base of operations that's also relaxing, look no further.

I traveled to Asheville to attend a concert at the Biltmore House and visited The Lion and The Rose B & B. For starters, the yard and porch were comfortable and welcoming and in the evening after dinner, we sat out by the fire pit and enjoyed a beautiful mountain night. The home was clean and the young innkeepers Lisa...

What a joy to find this Bed and Breakfast in Asheville! We took a chance on the reviews and were very pleased with our stay. It is a beautiful Inn, our room was perfect (Marion), and it is close to everything. We felt like we were staying with friends. Lisa and Madelyn served mouth-watering gourmet breakfasts each day, and we...

My daughter and I stayed at this B&B a few weeks ago when traveling thru Asheville. We had a great stay! We had a warm welcome upon arrival and given a tour of the home.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here... I cannot wait to go back. Just got back from a girls trip there. Lisa and Madelyn are so sweet and accommodating.
