Online reviews are wonderful- there’s no better way of getting the word out there about a place you love (or not!). But the things guests write in our guest books are so much more personal and expressive! We don’t get a chance to read them every day, but how rewarding it is when we do! They share not only their feelings about their stay at A Bed of Roses, but what’s happening in their lives- their new marriage, their baby coming, their travels and the new places they discovered in Asheville. And the hand drawn illustrations are the best! Here are a few of our favorites from 2013.

Our first trip to the cool city of Asheville was made perfect by our gracious hosts Bill & Emily. They love what they do and it shows! We enjoyed downtown, (especially Jack of the Wood pub) and our travels and hiking through the Blue Ridge Parkway (do hike the Frying Pan Tower!) We will definitely be back!

Recipe for a perfect day in Asheville:
- Wake up in a lovely room. Enhance your shower with plushy towels and a chic robe.
- Ease into the morning with hot coffee on the porch. Breath deeply. Relax.
- Get fueled for the day with a large and sumptuous breakfast by Emily & Bill Stir in some stimulating conversation.
- Add a hike along the Laurel River and a drive through Autumn Splendor on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
- Return for a short nap, with Fall air drifting through the windows (after a cookie!)
- Enjoy a famously succulent dinner at the Grove Park Inn – world class tastes & view.
- Come home to the SWEETEST B&B in Asheville.
- Turn out the lights and dream about tomorrow’s breakfast!
Thanks, Emily & Bill for your TLC! Blessings!

We came to Asheville for our last couples getaway before we have our first child in April. Emily and Bill provided a warm atmosphere and a lovely home for us to enjoyl I am sad to be leaving behind the cozy Carolyn Gray room and Emily’s amazing breakfasts! Thank you for everything!

Beautiful house and
As a honeymooning couple, we needed a cozy retreat to relax and spend time together. Emily & Bill provided us (along with the help of Judith & the cats) with the most perfect spot to spend our first days together as a married couple. They provided the most caring and heartfelt service and we were blessed with the hospitality! We will try to take on their sweet tradition of a candlelit dinner together in our married days to come! Thank you for everything!

PS Breakfast was superb!
We came to A Bed of Roses to celebrate our first year of marriage. This was our first time experience staying at a bed and breakfast and our standards are now set HIGH. Emily and Bill are such lovely hosts and know how to make your Asheville experience incredible. Ensure you attend breakfast EVERY morning to enjoy their sensational breakfast creations!
