Overview

Asheville Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Extra Twin Bed (Sleeps 4-5), spacious, central hvac

Check our reviews from 10 years of hosting guests. Stay in luxurious accommodations in this downtown Asheville tastefully renovated loft - your home away from home. Everything you could need for your vacation is here: a fully equipped modern kitchen, dining area, comfortable plush queen bed in one bedroom, queen-size sleeper sofa in living room with memory foam mattress, twin bed in second very small room, washer and dryer, 1 40' smart TV in living room, 1 27 inch TV in bedroom, Satellite, DVD player, Iphone dock/stereo, air conditioning, and a large window seat overlooking downtown.

This condo was renovated in early 2005 and is on the third floor of an historic building that is in the center of downtown. Walk to all of the unique locally owned shops, art galleries, delicious restaurants, theaters, the Fine Art cinema, Pack Place and the Orange Peel for a concert. Most of Asheville's festivals start at Pack Place, and that is one block away. Park your car in the deck across the street and leave it there! Watch the Christmas Parade go by from the window and take the elevator to the first floor for a first class dining experience at the Lobster Trap, where they fly in Maine lobsters daily. If you don't feel like venturing out, help yourself to the honor wine bar in the kitchen and order up some dinner or appetizers from the Lobster Trap. If you are interested in experiencing what downtown Asheville is all about, you will not find a better location. We have a private yoga instructor and massage therapist who you can make an appointment with to come to the 'nest' while you are staying with us.

This oasis in the middle of downtown is perfect for those who want a comfortable place to relax in and use as a home away from home, a base for their downtown Asheville explorations. Mature adults only--not a place for college students to come and party.

New! 40' 'smart' HD TV - enjoy your Netflix and Hulu access - just sign into your account and see your movies on our TV.

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook wonderful meals from local ingredients you pick up at the local tailgate markets downtown on Saturdays and Wednesdays, though with so many wonderful restaurants nearby, you may opt out of cooking altogether. Asheville was chosen by Fodor's as the #1 travel destination in the world! Asheville has become known for it's many locally brewed beers, creative restaurants that use locally grown ingredients, and of course for their arts and crafts communities. Within walking distance are several wine stores, an artisan cheese store, bakeries, every type of restaurant, movie theater and music venues.

If you like the outdoors, you will find endless opportunities within an hour of downtown - hiking, mountain biking, running, ziplining, rock climbing, snow skiing, etc. See our website to hear about our favorites picnic spots and hikes nearby. Find out why so many people are moving here! If you are one of those, we proudly recommend two realtors to drive you around to see what you like.

When the Urban Nest is booked, we offer a smaller apartment option in the Grove Park neighborhood that we call the Little Sister (listing number 916282). For more information go to our website.

New for October 2014!!: Our newest 'baby', Drover's Way, is just down the street from the Urban Nest. Ask us about it if the Nest is booked.

The address is 51 College St. between Lexington and Haywood St.

About Lynne Harty

Lynne Harty, local artist/photographer with her husband, Steve Cohen, an artist's manager. Lynne and Steve are happy to help you plan your outdoor adventures, steer you to their favorite restaurants, or stock the kitchen with items for your arrival. Just ask. They both work downtown around the corner from the condo so you can always stop by with any questions.

Lynne and Steve love to hike and explore the area around Asheville, and are happy to share their enthusiasm. They are also very involved in the Asheville art and music community so they are a good resource for your explorations. As Asheville is a foodie haven, they do their best to keep their guests up to date on new restaurants, which is a big job these days! They just added the 'Glad to Have You' app which has recommendations on everything from Lynne's favorite women's clothing store to their favorite spot for a glass of wine.

Lynne Harty purchased this condo in 2004

Why Lynne Harty chose Asheville

You can't find a better location in downtown Asheville nor more accommodating hosts, as we've been doing this for 9 years. We love to spend the night in the condo on nights when we are going to a show at the Orange Peel, or when we just want to be able to leave the car behind after a night on the town! I've furnished the condo to feel like a quiet home away from home with everything you need. Often we'll take the elevator down to the Lobster Trap to have a quiet dinner or glass of wine (or even ask them to bring appetizers to our condo for us!). We love the old brick wall in the living room, the funky nature of our old building, and that we have a tree outside our window despite living downtown. It's a very comfortable space.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a quiet place to stay and sleep despite being in the heart of downtown Asheville. I have wireless internet which makes it easy to work in as well. Many people have used the condo as a retreat. Spa Theology, a day spa next door, will provide in room massage if requested. Also the Lobster Trap on the first floor will deliver their delicious meals to the condo as well - very nice personal service from their accommodating staff. You really won't need a car when staying at our condo as you can walk everywhere in downtown Asheville.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived in Asheville on the day of a snowstorm! Who knew Asheville has little snow and "rolls up the sidewalk" when it arrives. We still managed to be well fed, and certainly enjoyed the delights of this wonderful apartment. Our great joy was seeing the snow dusted fruit of the sweet gum tree outside our window!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this condo for our anniversary and we loved every minute. It is very clean, well decorated, and in the best location! We had our 3.5 month old son and it was very quiet and close for times when he needed to rest! Great for walking around the downtown area and within driving distance to all area locations. We will definitely use this place again the next time we get a chance to visit!

Great Location with many ammenities

  • 5 of 5

The location of this was perfect for walking everywhere you needed to go downtown. You can even walk to some of the grocery locations if needed. We enjoyed all the restaurants and micro breweries that we were able to visit. The condo has all you need for cooking if you are so inclined and is clean and cozy.

Asheville is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Asheville, and this condo is in the heart of the action -- shopping, dining, etc. Couldn't have asked for anything better -- well furnished and location cannot be beat. I want to move there!

Perfect Location for Experiencing Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

There is no better location in downtown. We were in town for the SoCon basketball tourney and were 1 1/2 blocks from the US Cellular center. The condo is also midway between the Grove Arcade and Pack Square which means you are in the heart of the great restaurants. The condo was very well equipped and maintained plus all the neat photography by owner Lynne Harty. We never moved our car for the entire 4 days. We will return.

Perfect Condo, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for a girls' weekend. The condo is beautifully furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds and furniture. The check in/check out process was so easy. We loved that the condo is so convenient to many shops and restaurants. We walked almost everywhere! The parking deck being located across the street was perfect. We visited Spa Theology which is right next door. The Lobster Trap restaurant is right off the elevator in the same building. Wonderful since it was so cold out our first night and didn't want to get out. I highly recommend this condo!

Great stay and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for Valentine's Day weekend. It was perfect! The decor is really cute. The location is perfect and within walking distance to a lot of restaurants, breweries, and shopping. The only time we needed our car was to go to the Biltmore. The owner was very helpful with recommendations and making sure we knew everything we needed to know before we got there. There are little signs throughout the place that are helpful. The wine available for purchase was a very nice touch and very convenient. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all of our friends.
