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, balcony overlooking 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 (Netflix, local TV, Sling TV), wireless speaker (for Pandora, Slacker Radio, etc), a sleeper sofa with queen memory foam 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. An arts and music scene unparallelled. We love living in Asheville. We raise chickens, brew beer and mead, garden, make wood-fired pizza, and cook at home.

Krista Preissler & Andy John purchased this condo in 2016

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 an awesome balcony give a view of the city like you won't find anywhere. We knew immediately it would be the best place to experience Asheville.

What makes this condo unique

The loft features a nice balcony which looks out onto College Street. Guests of the loft can sit on the balcony 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 tall ceilings. It gives the loft an open relaxed feeling. All of the art in the loft was created by local artists. We are currently featuring art from Asheville artists such as Gary Byrd, Tony Bradley, Rita Barnes and Peter Thorpe. As avid cooks we have stocked the kitchen with all of the supplies guests will need to cook meals.

Our stay was above expectations

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

The location of the loft was near all that Asheville has to offer. Parking was easy at the Renaissance Marriot at $5 a day. Go to the front desk and ask for parking.

Pull out sofa bed was comfortable and actually seemed larger than the bed. Which helped since my husband is over 6’5 tall.

I’m used to renting places and bringing my own toilet paper and extras such as laundry soap; not here. I love that you added the extra touch of having plenty of extras.

Clean, clean, clean. Whoever your cleaning service is, they are great!

Cons:

Noise. But that was told to us and we didn’t let it bother us. On the louder nights on the sofa pull out, we would just leave the TV on to drown out the noise. My daughter who slept in the bedroom said she had no issues.

We will absolutely rent again on our next trip to Asheville.

Beautiful loft in great location location location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay here. We walked everywhere downtown easily!! The loft itself had everything we needed to cook, and relax comfortably. We easily made contact with Krista, the owner, on a couple of occasions, and she was super helpful. It did get quite noisy, but only on the weekend nights, and it wasn't a problem for us. So fun being right in the heart of this beautiful city! We can't wait to come back again!!

Great unit - great location!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The owners communicated well throughout the process and the unit was as described, clean, and well appointed. We loved the balcony for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The location is in convenient walking distance to most downtown shops, restaurants and attractions. We parked in the parking deck across the street and left our car there for our entire stay.

The owners note that there is some noise from nearby bars, which we experienced during our stay. Earplugs and a white noise machine are supplied, which help especially in the bedroom. However, if you have enough in your party to need the pullout sofa bed in the living room area, the noise from the street below and nearby bars is definitely prominent so just expect this if anyone in your group will sleep in this area. One other thing to note is the restroom is accessed from within the bedroom, so if you have more than two, anyone sleeping in the bedroom will need to share access. For us, the location and overall condo experience was well worth it and we got relatively used to the noise during our stay. I would definitely recommend staying here and we plan to come back for another visit soon!

Great visit & Downtown location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this Loft, it was a great location! Very clean, modern, and walking distance to lots of wonderful things downtown... It is right downtown & near some night life - we did hear the band thumping at a nice place a couple doors down...so, if you don't like noise it may not be for you...It did not bother us... Would stay here again!
