The Lion and the Rose

276 Montford Ave., Montford Park, Asheville, North Carolina, 28801, USA

One of the characters in Thomas Wolfe's Look Homeward, Angel lived in this house, an 1898 Queen Anne–Georgian in the historic Montford Park area near downtown, which likely looks as good today as it did then. Special details include a 6-foot Palladian-style stained-glass window at the top of the oak stairs and lovely heirloom gardens. For snacks and wine, guests have 24-hour access to a well-stocked pantry. For the most privacy, choose the suite, which occupies the entire third floor.
