Beautiful Winter Escape

4.4 on February 02, 2016

We had a wonderful weekend up at The Lion and The Rose. Our room was beautifully appointed . . and the private jacuzzi tub was a godsend after a day of skiing. Both breakfasts were great. Roger and Chris are lovely hosts, and provided us with whatever we needed. We hope to be back!

Amazing stay!

We were looking for a comfortable, private stay at a local bed and breakfast and got much more out of our experience. We were pleased to find out that the owners were also amazing chefs, wonderful tour guides and genuinely sweet people. We will definitely be back to celebrate another anniversary!

A great place to stay!!!!!

We have been looking for a reasonable bed and breakfast to stay at for our birthdays and we found it . the owners chris and roger are fantastic host. They greet you at the door and from there they make you feel like you have always been friends. They recommended a great restaurant ( timber-bur-alley) and even made the reservations for us .Breakfast was great .Good food and good conversation .Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Best B&B ever!

My husband and I stayed here the first time for our honeymoon in 2004. We have been back many times. Chris and Roger are wonderful good hearted people. The atmosphere, service, rooms, meals, all stupendous! Whenever we need a short get away, this is the place we go. They make you feel like family. The entire place is spotless, and the Victorian atmosphere brings you to a place of peace. I highly recommend them to everyone.

Great stay at a lovely plae

very nice rooms with a great location in Asheville. The Lyon and the Rose is actually part of the city tour of things to see.

Wonderful People and Place

This was a beautiful old fashioned B&B! The couple that runs the place were as friendly and welcoming as my mother and father. We enjoyed a wonderful evening by the fire getting to know them and other guests before retiring to a very comfortable room and our jacuzzi for a very romantic evening. Breakfast was a feast with great company, and we were sad to be leaving so soon, but excited to go back! Love it, it's quaint, homey, and old fashioned. One of the nicest hotel experiences I've ever had!

Lion & Rose

4.2 on February 04, 2015

We stayed at the Lion & Rose for one very cold evening. The Inn was delightfully warm and the inkeepers were welcoming. Our room was cozy and warm all night even with the subzero temperatures. Breakfast service was in keeping with the Victorian decor. The food was delightful. Mary

A warm and wonderful place to stay
