The Lion and The Rose Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #11 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Jim and Linda have established a wonderful bed and breakfast with all the details having been taken into consideration. Jim is the cook with his excellent and creative breakfast dishes each morning. Whether it's information on the area, chocolats in your room, drinks and snacks during the day, or sherry at night; everything has been thought of, making the stay a delight. We highly recommend a stay there. We'll be going back.

Just imagine being awakened in a lovely, comfortable bed by the smell of interesting herbs rising from the kitchen - on your bedside table there are fresh flowers and a small bowl of chocolates. There is a soft sound as someone leaves a tray with coffee in front of your door. Downstairs in the dining room the table is decorated beautifully with antique china, crystal, lace, and fresh roses. At each of the places there is a bowl of fresh fruit for your start to breakfast. Linda comes in and asks what you would like to drink with your breakfast. After a while she returns with a plate of freshly baked, sliced apples, fresh bacon, crisp Belgian waffles, whipped cream, and a pitcher of home made pomegranate syrup. This is the type of daily start you can expect at this wonderful B&B. We stayed at The Lion and the Rose at the end of March when the beautiful garden was full of blooms and you could leave the windows open all day and night. The breakfasts were different on both days, each time superbly created by Jim. When we came back in the afternoons we found sherry, coffee, tea, soft drinks, small cakes, fruit, and nuts waiting for us in the pantry. Later when we came back after dinner, we could sort through a large DVD collection to find a movie to see in our room. This B&B has wireless free internet service which worked every time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lion and the Rose from the first moment to the last and I am already planning a return.

We have stayed at 10 B&B's in Asheville and this ranks at the top. Jim and Linda are gracious hosts and our four day stay was very enjoyable. Beautiful home, great food, close to town and quiet. We look forward to a return visit.

We spent two nights at the Lion and the Rose and found it utterly charming. The regular innkeepers were away but we were made very welcome by Keke, the assistant innkeeper. We had a thorough tour of the B & B and a good explanation of what was available. Our room (the Marion Hall room) was beautiful - very large, beautifully decorated, comfortable. The sound of the fountain outside added to the relaxing environment. We loved the guest pantry and complimentary sherry and port - and there were DVDs for use and books to read - it all felt very thoughtful and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and as vegetarians we were well catered for. Outside the garden was a nice spot to sit in and there were squirrels running up the trees. It was an easy walk into Asheville along a nice street so the location was good. All in all we were very happy here and would have loved to have stayed longer. Highly recommended.

We were just in town overnight for business, but completely enjoyed our stay at the Lion and the Rose. We will be back!

Room Tip: Try the 3rd floor suite, great view and personal balcony.
