A lot of nice touches here - lovely gardens, big porch, truly gourmet breakfast, special attention to the needs of travelers, (eg - power strip in the room). The same attention evident in the antique furnishings and complete feel of the house. Friendly staff as well and we quite enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I stayed here in September 2012. The Montford Historic District, where this B&B is located, is a leafy, tired neighborhood with lots of similarly-restored houses just off downtown. As such, there are plenty of B&B's to choose from. PROS: The house was restored very nicely, and it sits on an expansive corner lot deep into the neighborhood....

My husband and I just spent two nights at the Lion and the Rose and loved the historic neighborhood in which it is found. It is about a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown and we easily walked there and back a number of times. The walk let us feel less guilty about all the food we were...

We celebrated a 50+ anniversary with a visit to Asheville using Tripadvisor recommendations for the B&B and dinner: we were not disappointed. The Lion and Rose hosts were very gracious, our accommodations surrounded by antiques were comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. A nice touch was the coffee/tea left at our door at 8 a.m. (Breakfast starts at 8:30). Even...

We made a last minute reservation for 3 days and lucked out by getting the Marian Hill room, which gave us lots of space to spread out. I think we made use of everything in this B&B except for the videos, and there was not time for that. Jim is an excellent cook, and made me excellent gluten free, lactose...

We spent 3 nights in the Fannie Rice room. The room was very comfortable and appealing. It was so nice to wake up to hot tea (or coffee) on a tray outside our door. The breakfasts were delicious and the well-stocked guest pantry really made us feel welcome. It was also thoughtful of the hosts to provide a desktop computer...

My husband and I just got home from our two night stay here and we are missing it already. This is a great place to stay....Jim and Linda are terrific hosts and cooks, and the property is amazing.

My husband and I spent our one year wedding anniversary at The Lion & the Rose in August. The house and property were beautiful. The suite was homey, very comfortable, and beautiful.

My wife and I stayed at the Lion and the Rose three nights this past week and enjoyed every minute there. The home has lots of character and Jim and Linda are wonderful hosts. I highly recommend this B&B if you will be staying in or around Asheville.
