We like to stay in B&B's when we aren't traveling in our motorhome. Our stay at the Lion and Rose the first weekend of December was excellent. Mr. & Mrs. Palmer went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome. A pantry with snacks, home made cookies, bottled water, tea, and even an evening sherry were at our fingertips. Every morning we sat at a beautifully set table waiting for Mr. Palmer to wow us with his culinary talents! He takes special care with his menu choices; savory one day sweeter the next. Our room was located on the 2nd floor & was cozy with a queen bed, 2 Queen Ann chairs and in suite, private bath. If I had to find anything to suggest that might have been better for us, it would be the lighting in the bath. My eyes aren't that great any more and we could use a bit brighter fixture. The Inn is located close to town, but the neighborhood was very quiet at night. The Palmers also know the area restaurants very well and helped direct us to great choices. We will suggest the Lion & Rose to anyone visiting Asheville.
