Amazing bed and breakfast
This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and it has set the bar high for all bed and breakfasts! The room was extremely clean and had a home feel to it. The owners are extremely nice and welcoming! I liked that the owner would sit down towards the end of breakfast to discuss our day with us and give any suggestions and additional ideas about things to do around the area. They have two dogs that stay downstairs and they ask all guests if they mind if they come out - We are dog people so we didn't mind, but it was nice that they asked. Clean! Prime location! Home feel! History! Beautiful!

Wonderful Stay
Amazing location in a historical location of Asheville. Lovely walking in the neighborhood of vintage homes plus easy walking (one-half mile) to visitor's center for booking The Biltmore and more. Then, another one-half mile and your are in the wonderful downtown area. Informal 9 Mile restaurant is a short walk. GREAT Jamacian food. Met really nice folks where we shared at the lovely breakfast table. Favorite spot in the evening was the lovely front porch. Home has lots of room with two front sitting rooms (one with fireplace). Large, lovely garden yard. Lots of good things to say but the location is the BEST!

I highly recommend the Lion and the Rose! The innkeepers are a delight, the B&B impeccable, and the breakfast amazing! Karen and Steve consistently went over and above to make our stay not only comfortable, but also informative by pointing out the area attractions and "must sees" while in Asheville! The B&B is walking distance to downtown Asheville and two highly rated restaurants are within two blocks! We will definitely stay at the Lion and the Rose again!

Great place!
This is a very comfortable B&B in a restored mansion in a genteel neighborhood. Their communal breakfasts in the ornate dining room are a great way to start the day. The mother and daughter team of Lisa and Madelyn are attentive to all the details.

Comfortable room in a nice historic home within walking distance of downtown amenities. Our innkeeper Millie was super accommodating and very patient about our extremely late check-in (thanks, ice storm), and she was more than happy to meet my fussy dietary restrictions at breakfast (which was very tasty). We were quite comfortable and cozy all night despite the freezing temperatures outside, and had everything we needed. Really enjoyed our stay!
