The inn's Queen Anne/Georgian facade has been restored to her original splendor, evoking the classic architecture of the times, and earning her the privilege of being the first stop on Asheville's historic trolley tours. With high embossed ceilings, original leaded and stained glass windows, gorgeous art and antiques, four fireplaces, and a golden tiger oak foyer and staircase, The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast lets you experience the opulence of a bygone era. Five luxurious guest rooms invite you to enjoy the romance, privacy, and enchantment that can only be found at a welcoming inn. Our friendly and relaxed atmosphere will make you feel right at home.
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, delicious 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.
No matter what brings you to the Blue Ridge Mountains, your comfort and enjoyment are our first priority. We welcome you to beautiful North Carolina, and hope you enjoy your stay.
