excellent wineFormally incorporated in 1797, Asheville has a long, rich history as the only large city in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its Art Deco architecture appears as if it is one with the surrounding ridges and forests. The city grew from just a few dozen residents to over ten thousand in its first hundred years, expanding north, following the French Broad River. The Georgian-style house that has since become the Lion and the Rose was built in 1898. The innkeepers welcome guests from all over to enjoy the charming decor, comfortable luxury, and peaceful setting within walking distance of everyone's favorite North Asheville spots. From their website:

"With original leaded and stained glass windows, period antiques, four fireplaces, and a golden tiger oak foyer and staircase, The Lion and the Rose lets you experience the opulence of a bygone era, but with modern amenities for a comfortable and unique experience."

Whether you are celebrating an anniversary with your partner, enjoying a pleasant weekend away, or trying to get to know this stunning mountain city, you will fall in love with The Lion and the Rose.
