The Lion and the Rose


What Our Guests are Saying

"Loved Everything About It"

"We stayed at the Lion and the Rose for four nights, and could not have been happier with the accommodation and service. Lisa and Maddie are doing a terrific job, the place is impeccably kept, and breakfast is wonderful. Besides coffee/tea and juice, there was always something ready (scotch eggs? big hit!) to keep you fed while Lisa is whipping up the main attraction!

The location is convenient, the grounds are beautiful. We have stayed in many B&Bs and truly enjoyed this one, we wish them all the best in their new venture, and hope to return in the future.

"Can’t Wait to Stay Again"

"Everything about The Lion and the Rose is outstanding. Rooms are clean with beautiful antique furniture. Breakfasts are gourmet and very large servings. I loved the morning coffee in the hallway outside the room. We also appreciated that the bedroom was well lit for reading. The Nine Mile Restaurant and the Italian restaurant Chiesa were a short walk. There is a lovely garden and a nice front porch for lounging. Lisa and Madelyn went out of their way to make us feel at home."

"Over the Top Hospitality"

"Lisa and Madelyn went over the top to make us feel welcome. The breakfast is beyond anything I've ever had at a bed and breakfast before, and they were so sweet to accommodate my gluten intolerance last minute (I forgot to mention it ahead of time - sorry!) The food was spectacular! Even the gluten free substitutes - which are often hit or miss- were delicious! They even packed us a breakfast when we had to leave early for a fishing trip the last morning. Great girls getaway weekend in a great location! The decor was regal without feeling stuffy."

"Fabulous Bed and Breakfast"

"The Lion and the Rose is a beautiful bed and breakfast in the historic Montford district, which is within walking distance of downtown Asheville. The innkeepers, Lisa and her daughter Madelyn, are warm, friendly, and always ready with recommendations for places to eat. The breakfasts are outstanding. We stayed eight days and Lisa always prepared something different. Their porch is a great place to curl up with a good book and the inside accommodations are just as nice. I would recommend this B&B to anyone and would absolutely return in the future."

"Perfection is the only word that comes to mind. Thank you for a memorable experience in your gracious, warm and lovely B&B. You've thought of everything and breakfast was the best. Continued success!"
