On Veterans Day - November 11, 2013 - the inns of the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association provided 55+ rooms for free to any retired or active duty US military personnel. This was part of a nation wide effort by the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII) to honor past and present members of our armed forces.
In addition to a complimentary stay at one of our local B&Bs, free or discounted meals at area restaurants were generously donated by the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association.
We are proud to have participated in this event and look forward to continuing the tradition. Annie and Sue, the veterans who chose to stay at The Lion and the Rose, are retired from the United States Army. We have much admiration for them and for all US veterans for their service to us and to our country.
Thank you Sue and Annie!
