1898 Queen Anne in Asheville's National Historic District of Montford. The inn is within walking distance to downtown Asheville, & minutes from the Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The home sits on a half acre park like setting with flower gardens, and a gently sloping lawn. Sumptuous breakfasts are served by candlelight each morning. In addition to the five guest rooms, there are two parlors, a formal dining room, an inglenook with fireplace, and a large and beautiful foyer. Each room is uniquely furnished with antiques, Persian rugs, and unique art. The high embossed ceilings, four fireplaces, original golden oak, and the classic leaded and stained glass windows all serve to create an enchanting atmosphere.

The Lion and the Rose has everything one can want for, class, charm and the best breakfast ever at the most beautifully set table. One night was not enough and we hope to return some day to take advantage of the pleasant living area, books to read and delicious chocolates all over the place.

We stayed at the Lion and the Rose in Asheville at New Years, and it was so nice. The place is beautiful inside and out, but it was very special during the holiday season. Its a great value, and seems more reasonably priced than some of the other inns. The innkeepers are great and so is the gourmet breakfast. We couldnt have asked for a better place to stay!

My husband and I stayed at the inn in November. The inn is absolutely beautiful. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had a sitting area that we both enjoyed. We were able to watch a few movies and relax. The inn has many amenities that I have not seen in other places. My favorite is their pantry area where they have complimentary water, soft drinks, coffee tea, and some sweet treats. The service was excellent. I will recommend this inn to others that come visit Asheville.

I can't imagine a more satisfying B&B experience. Beautiful and spacious home with a large porch and comfortable rooms. In addition to the gourmet breakfasts, Jim and Linda offer a frig full of drinks, all kinds of snack and homemade cookies. They are wonderful hosts in every respect, even bringing coffee to your room in the morning. We look forward to a return visit with them.
