Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This is the place to stay if you want to be in downtown Asheville. Whether you're here for a romantic getaway or for one of our many festivals, look no further. Our loft features local art, full window view of College St, high ceilings, and exposed brick.

You will find everything you need for a relaxing stay -- a completely equipped kitchen (we will provide coffee & tea), an HDTV with BluRay (we provide a netflix account), a Soundfreaq Sound Kick wireless speaker (for Pandora, Slacker Radio, etc), a sleeper sofa with Sealy Posturpedic mattress in the living area, a queen size bed with memory foam mattress and pillows with high thread count bedding in the bedroom and a washer and dryer.

The loft is filled with art from local artists.

The building has an elevator and a secure keypad entry.

Several covered parking decks are nearby.

You will not need to drive unless you are going to the River Arts District, Biltmore House or hiking in the mountains. Located between Lexington Ave & Haywood St, the loft is a 1 minute walk to Pack Square and Biltmore Ave and a 3 minute walk to the Grove Arcade & Wall St.

Downtown Asheville is energetic and we are right in the center of the action! Lots of cool spaces to explore, amazing restaurants and nightlife. We are across the street from Table and Imperial Life, which features a Friday late night Hip Hop Dance party. We are two doors down from the One Stop/Asheville Music Hall which stays open late and features funk, reggae, and rock. Old time, bluegrass, celtic, rock, symphony, African drumming, trad jazz, modern jazz, gypsy, singer-songwriters and eclectic street performers are a stone's throw from here as well. Award winning restaurants including sushi, Indian (north or south), Korean, Italian, BBQ, Southern, vegan, charcuterie, farm-to-table, pizza, Spanish, gluten free, French, Chinese, bakeries, coffee houses, tea, four chocolateries, twelve breweries (and counting…) and food trucks galore. Art galleries feature openings every weekend in downtown and nearby and keep daytime business hours to explore artists from the area and from afar.

About Krista Preissler & Andy John

We visited Asheville on a weekend trip and fell in love with the town. Much cleaner and more vibrant than Memphis where we were currently living. An arts and music scene unparallelled. Andy quickly found work playing and teaching music and Krista continued her career path as a pharmacist. We raise chickens, brew beer and mead, garden, make wood-fired pizza, and cook at home.

Krista Preissler & Andy John purchased this condo in 2013

Why Krista Preissler & Andy John chose Downtown

The building is 100 years old and has 'good bones' according to our upstairs neighbor who has lived there for 10 years and helped manage the remodel. Brick walls and huge windows give a view of the city like you won't find anywhere. We had been looking for a loft since we moved to Asheville and we're glad we waited until this one posed itself! We knew immediately it would be the best place to experience Asheville.

What makes this condo unique

The loft features one wall of windows which looks out onto College Street. Guests of the loft can sit at our biergarten table with a glass of wine or cup of coffee and people-watch from above. We also have a big comfy chair and ottoman which is a great place to sit and read or listen to music. We love the ceilings, which are made of recycled bead board. All of the art in the loft was created by local artists. We are currently featuring oil paintings and watercolors of Gary Byrd and the comic folk art of Karen Hall.

As avid cooks we have stocked the kitchen with all of the supplies guests will need to cook meals.

GREAT LOCATION, NICE LOFT, VERY COMFORTABLE BED. NOISY at Night

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nicely located loft, in the heart of everything. Even though it was cold outside, we walked to lots of great restaurants, shops. Table restaurant across the street was fantastic as was its bar.

The major downside to this was the bar literally BELOW and one space over from the loft. MAybe we were there at a bad time of the year, but we arrived friday, and friday night there was a band that played until about 2 am. There was a sound machine, and we had ear plugs, and still could not sleep until the music stopped. The outside of the bar sidewalk was packed with people smoking and talking LOUD until late. Saturday night the bass was so loud that my wife and I joked that we were in a nightclub....Sunday was new years so the same scene. Lots of noise.

We are not too OLD (45,47) and generally are very easy going, and dont mind drinking, going out, and having fun. We were informed that there is some street noise prior to arrival. I just didn't expect it to be this loud. We had an issue with something back at home and after several nights of poor sleep, left early.

The loft is very comfortable, has everything you need, and the bed is very very comfortable. Probably the most comfortable bed of many of the VRBO rentals we have stayed in. Krista checked on us prior to arrival and after we arrived. We didn't complain about the noise, theres nothing that could be done about it.

In a nutshell I think this is a fantastic location that is very cozy. Probably great on weekdays and other not holiday weekends. We wouldn't rebook due to the noise.
