Asheville, North Carolina is not known as the Paris of the South just because of it's great restaurants and bohemian atmosphere, but primarily due to the large number of artists who live and work here.  Musicians, visual artists, and writers all thrive in our town.

Julyan Davis

Asheville is the home of many artists:  musicians, sculptors, painters, writers, and actors.  They've come from all parts of the country and the world, and somehow settled in this plateau in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

I first saw Julyan Davis' paintings in a local magazine, The Laurel, several years ago.  Ever since, when visiting galleries in town, I've looked for his work and have been able to spot his paintings from across the room - his talent is that unique and breathtaking.


Guests at The Lion & the Rose Bed and Breakfast are often here to celebrate a special occasion: a wedding, an anniversary, an engagement, a birthday, or a holiday.

For the past few years we have had a new type of celebrant - babymooners.  These are couples looking for a place to relax and re-connect for one last romantic getaway before entering (or re-entering) parenthood.

Farm to Table

Asheville, North Carolina has long been an advocate of the farm to table movement which is only slowly catching on now throughout the country.  The idea is that the closer the food that you eat is from the farm where it's grown, the better it is for your health - not to mention that it tastes a whole lot better too.
