Places to Stay

Cottages & B&Bs

The Lion and the Rose

The Lion and the Rose is a stunning pink lady in the Montford Historic District. The manicured lawns, luxurious decor, and welcoming innkeepers, Steve & Karen invite you in for an unforgettable stay at an exceptional value. This 1898 residence is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to downtown Asheville and its many attractions. The Blue Ridge Parkway and Biltmore Estate are just minutes away.

As one of Asheville’s longest-operating inns, The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast offers amenities to rival any hotel or inn around, including free, lighted, off-street parking, gourmet breakfasts, plush bedding, and unpretentious hospitality. We have toured their Inn, and loved the antique, but well-kept character of the building and decor. Steve and Karen are a warm and welcoming couple to host your stay.

The Inn invites people through their doors from all walks of life, sexual orientations and gender identities. Discriminatory laws that single out members of the LGBT community offer sharp contrast to the open-minded, welcoming spirit that visitors find in Asheville and at their Inn.

Dry Ridge Inn – Weaverville

Built in 1849 and continually updated, the Dry Ridge Inn Asheville Bed & Breakfast has eight beautiful guest rooms, each with gas fireplace, free WiFi and a private bathroom designed with your comfort in mind. A luxurious living room with complementary beverages, and the enticing gardens will tempt you to stay in for the day. Business travelers will appreciate the business center on the second floor.

Everyone will appreciate Kristen’s sumptuous breakfasts. Pecan pancakes, filo-encased “egg flowers” – her selections are as delightful as they are delicious. Coffee, fresh fruit and juice appear each morning. Special diets are happily accommodated. Guests have the option of dining alone or with new friends they’ve made at the inn. You’ll pay more for this level of comfort and service at other inns in Asheville and Weavervile.

The Dry Ridge Inn Asheville Bed & Breakfast is as affordable as its keepers are informative – rates here are less than you’ll find elsewhere. For less, you’ll get more – easy access to Asheville and a quick return to a safe, small mountain town whose residents smile and say hello as they pass each other on the sidewalk. Indeed, you may find yourself falling in love with Weaverville as Howard and Kristen did when they moved here more than a decade ago.
