We now offer cable TV on a small flat screen TV, with over 300 channels, including HBO and Cinemax.
This quaint studio has lots of character, (like an original built-in ironing board and original ceramic tub!) plus everything you need for your relaxing Asheville retreat. (Tub also has a shower.) Less than a mile to downtown (GPS map says .8 , 3 minute drive and 20 minute walk to the outskirts.) Hardwood floors, plenty of natural light and closet space, really comfortable King bed and day bed for extra guest who is not very tall, lots of pillows, lamps, desk/chest, heater, sweet eat-in kitchen with fridge, 2 burner range, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, George Foreman grill, dishes, pots and pans, cotton linens and towels, natural light from windows, lovely walk to downtown and UNCA, (especially in nice weather for hearty walkers yet some guests find it too far to walk), steps from Asheville Biscuitry, Moe's, Homegrown, Sushi, The Hop ice cream, UNCA trails, Luella's Bar-B-Que, Musician's Workshop, Greenlife Grocery, Trader Joe's, Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (they have great recent $3.00 movies too!) etc. Shared back yard garden and fire pit to enjoy, as well as outdoor grill, flower and herb gardens, off-street small parking lot for one car. We have lived in the main part of the house until recently, and have moved around the corner in Montford, so are available if you need anything. Two wonderful permanent resident managers have moved in to the main part of the house, who can also help you if you need anything. This apartment is on the ground floor, steps from back parking lot, with separate entrance and sensor flood lights, and solar lanterns for night time ease. You may hear footsteps from time to time, voices and other domestic sounds, yet we encourage all of our guests and tenants to comply with the expectation of quiet enjoyment of the property. If you wish no sign of others, this is not a good fit, but there is still lots of privacy to enjoy. Best enjoyed by 2 or 3 people looking for a soulful Asheville experience. Parking lot can be tight with large vehicles, and may require backing down the narrow driveway to turn around in the alley.
Guest access: Free wireless internet/cable TV, off street parking in parking lot in back of house for 1 vehicle (extremely large vehicles may need to park in the St. in front of the house, but we have only encountered this issue once or twice, yet the driveway is gravel and narrow, so some people prefer to park on the street and walk around the house to the entrance. If you do park in the carport, when leaving the carport, you will need to back down driveway to turn onto alley), private apartment with private bathroom and breakfast nook (including dishes, pots and pans, etc.) Keurig coffee machine, 2 burner hotplate/ range, large toaster oven, large microwave. If you plan on using the fire pit, please put fire out completely when done. Internet network: Henry & Gus, Password: levincreative
Guest interaction: Private space. No need to interact, but there is a friendly vibe. We are delighted to visit if we have time, but we are a busy family. We prefer to communicate with messages through VRBO or texts when we are available in person. Our resident managers Daniel and Lisa are delightful and helpful when you may have questions or concerns.
If you wish to do some light laundry, we invite you to use the basement washer and dryer that is shared with my apartment cleaning person for the apartment laundry. Permanent residents use a different washer/dryer. We provide a key to the basement that has a separate entrance.
Neighborhood overview: The neighborhood is fun and close to everything most Asheville visitors seek, has a woodsy feel, yet walking distance to downtown and UNCA, Botanical Gardens, with nice, friendly, relaxed neighbors. Dough, Homegrown, Moe's Burritos, Musicians Workshop, Luella's BBQ, all less than 5 minute walk from apartment. Couple of blocks to beautiful UNCA-owned public wooded trails that lead to Botanical Gardens, UNCA, ropes courses, etc. 10 minute walk to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Harris Teeters, 15-20 minute walk to heart of downtown (GPS says walking is about 18 minutes) or 3+ minutes by car, according to GPS maps. Neighborhood has some historic homes, some newer homes, some townhouses, w/ some families, professionals, artists, and students.

I am a writer and musician, and my husband owns an advertising firm Element Advertising here in Asheville. We have two wonderful boys, age 9 and 13 who go to the fantastic Evergreen Charter School. We lived at this property for many years, but now have rented the main part of the house to two wonderful resident managers, and we live just a stone's throw away in Montford. We met in San Francisco, and moved to Asheville in 2003 to start a family.

Adorable, quaint studio! Great location!
My husband and I came to Asheville to celebrate my birthday and I was so happy to have found this little gem! Great location, close to lots of shops and restaurants and only minutes to downtown! April
Was easy to work with and very responsive! She made the studio super cozy w lots of great touches.. like the delish almond horns which I think I ate all of!! The lemongrass diffuser, the coffee etc! The only thing I would recommend is maybe getting a sound machine as you can hear the tentants above pretty clearly - we actually had a travel one as I am light sleeper, so it may not affect others. I would definitely recommend this studio and would stay again for sure!!
Adorable Studio for a Weekend Getaway
Loved this adorable little studio! Greatly decorated. It's super convenient to downtown Asheville, just $6 uber ride to the awesome breweries and hot spots. Bed was really comfortable and loved having the outdoor fire pit access. Only complaint was there is no TV. But otherwise, we'd totally book again! Thanks for having us.
