The Lion and the Rose B+B was perfection. My booyfriend and I stayed 3 nights in the Craig Toms suite and enjoyed everything about this B+B. The suite is the entire 3rd floor, and is spacious, beautifully appointed with antiques, has a fireplace, modern bath with large walk in shower and a jacuzzi tub, couches for lounging, and a fridge...

My husband and I have a tradition at staying at a different B&B each New Years weekend. The Lion & The Rose has been, hands-down, the best experience we've had. Jim and Linda have thought of everything... from chocolate candies in dishes all around the inn, to the beautiful Christmas decorations (there's a Santa around every corner), to the complimentary...

Four of us stayed 2 nights in this wonderful B&B but could have stayed all season! We came to Asheville for the Biltmore Candlelight Christmas. Jim and Linda helped with our tickets and all the arrangements (and at a discount from the online or gate price). The b&b was gorgeously decorated for Christmas; at night it was almost magical. Jim...

This is an well located property in proximity and good access to prime interests and attractions. It is lovely from the exterior and very beautiful inside. The owners have well considered the needs of their guests and provided very generous amenities. The rooms are by far the nicest B&B rooms I have stayed in internationally. Very comfortable and private, designed...

We loved most everything about our stay at this wonderful establishment. From the warm greeting by guests Linda and Jim upon arrival, the well kept, comfy home with plenty of Christmas touches everywhere, the welcome pantry with bottled water, large selection teas and fresh baked goodies, to the delicious and filling breakfasts, staying here was a very pleasant experience. It...

4 of us stayed at this bed and breakfast on our trip to see the Biltmore Candlelight Tour. Jim and Linda were very accomodating and friendly. The rooms are very clean and the Inn itself is beautiful. Our favorite part was the gourmet breakfasts that Jim prepared each morning. Delicious! Wonderful to relax sitting on the front porch! We will...

I loved it!!! My husband and I went for our birthdays. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The breakfast both mornings was unbelievable. I ended up buying a cook book. I will definitely return!

Jim and Linda run a first class operation here. The house is in great shape and the breakfast is really good. They know how to execute great customer service. We felt right at home; they were always there when we needed them. I'm sure the grounds are beautiful in the spring and summer; we hope to go back one of...

On October 22,we were blown out of the Bahamas by Hurricane Sandy and landed in North Carolina. With no plans we just trusted Trip Advisor and stayed at the Lion and Rose. We were not disappointed.

We made the trip to Asheville to see the Biltmore House candle light tour. Upon the recommendation of a co worker we chose the top floor of this wonderful bed and breakfast inn. The owners were wonderful, the accommodations were great. I especially liked the shower, and the two breakfast meals were outstanding. We had a wonderful time.
