Meet Steve and Karen…
The Lion & The Rose will be owned and managed by Steve and Karen Wilson. Steve has a BS degree in Computer Science and Karen has an MS degree in Computer Science with previous experience in project management, web design and a few years in the hospitality industry.
Steve and Karen fell in love with North Carolina 18 years ago. The time for a new adventure was calling and they were determined to continue their love affair with NC. Becoming innkeepers had been in the back of their minds since their first B&B experience for their wedding. They searched from the ocean to the mountains for the right place to call home. The beautiful pink lady of The Lion and the Rose stole their hearts, and the charm of the historic Montford district of Asheville made for the perfect combination of these outdoor, nature lovers.
Steve and Karen, are affectionately known as “Mr. and Mrs. Wild” for their love of wildlife and crazy travel adventures. They have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and meet so many wonderful people along the way. They love to hear and share travel stories and connect with their guests. Whether it be for a day or a week, they look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home in Asheville.
