The Lion and the Rose, built in 1898, is a quaint Queen Anne bed and breakfast situated in the Historical District of Montford. The diversity of downtown Asheville with its specialty shops and locally owned restaurants is a mere four-block walking distance.
This five guest room landmark is ideal for a winter getaway. Four rooms are located on the second floor and the fifth room is a privacy suite which occupies the entire third floor. This pink gem is great for snuggling up with that someone special in front of a fireplace in the midst of winter bliss. A white picket fence encompasses this colonial revival built on a high rise lawn filled with elegant surroundings. This first stop on Asheville’s historic trolley tours is filled with antiques, art, four fireplaces, stained glass windows and an oak foyer staircase.
Each room spoils the guests with a queen bed, luxury linens, bath soaps, a TV, phone and personal order robes. The formal and sitting parlors are excellent places to read, relax and escape from the stresses of everyday life. Off-street parking is available.
The Lion and the Rose offers reduced winter rates and a unique gourmet breakfast guests can savor in the formal dining room illuminated by candles. The genuine, relaxing, warm and toasty atmosphere provides a welcome and step in from the chill ambience suited to please winter guests.
