"One of the best run B&B's in greater Asheville"
- Frommer's Travel Guide, The Carolinas & Georgia 7th Edition
This 1898 residence is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to downtown Asheville and its many attractions. The Blue Ridge Parkway and Biltmore Estate are just minutes away.
The Queen Anne/Georgian style inn has been restored to it's original splendor, evoking the classic architecture of the times, and earning the privilege of being the first stop on Asheville's historic trolley tours. With original leaded and stained glass windows, period antiques, four fireplaces, and a golden tiger oak foyer and staircase, The Lion and the Rose lets you experience the opulence of a bygone era, but with modern amenities for a comfortable and unique experience. Five beautifully appointed guest rooms invite you to enjoy the romance, privacy, and enchantment that can only be found in such homes rich in history and character.
As one of Asheville's longest-operating inns, The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast offers amenities to rival any hotel or inn around, including free, lighted, off-street parking, gourmet breakfasts, plush bedding, and unpretentious hospitality. We do our best to meet, and even anticipate your needs, and are available for assistance at any time.
