Asheville Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to our historic, modernized Biltmore Studio with a parking space, full kitchen, on a bustling corner, smack-dab in the heartbeat of Downtown with some of the best restaurants, galleries, music venues, theaters, and shops just steps from your door. The Biltmore Studio is framed with 16 inch brick walls for your quiet enjoyment in the cacophony of Downtown Asheville, though be aware of some 'character noises' from the footsteps on the Heartwood pine floors above during business hours. The Studio has its own parking space by the wooden gated entrance in our French Cut Fence and small patio with new Keypad keyless door access - easy and safe - sleeps 3 comfortably!

You'll be enamored with the earthy feel of this walk-out (open bedroom design). You'll find all the luxurious trappings including: high speed 12 mb download, wireless DSL internet connection; flat screen HDTV with Netflix movies and TV shows; 3-D Blu Ray Disk and DVD Player with a small library of select movies; new living room and bedroom suites with gel memory foam mattress & pillow top on the Queen sized bed; and new stainless steel refrigerator and range. How about seating yourself in the umbrage of the maple trees in the comfortable patio of the Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS next door, or the world class venue of the 500 seat Diana Wortham Theater at the top of the block?

You may also be interested in our elegant 39 Biltmore Loft in the same building for $240/night with high ceilings, exposed brick, and a private gated entrance facing Biltmore Ave. (

A new 400+ Asheville City Parking Garage is right across the side street and free street parking is on Lexington Ave. behind the a-Loft Hotel; Pack Square Park is on the top of the block; Mast General Store is 1/2 block; the Fine Arts Theater is across the street; the nationally regarded music venue, the Orange Peel, is 1 block; and the organic French Broad Co-op grocery is 1 block yonder.

We could say more but you'll just have to explore and experience the rest of the beauty and excitement on your own...

Sandy and Bernie Byrne are Iowa born via Coral Gables/Miami FL. Bernie grew up on a farm in northwest Iowa and Sandy in Iowa City, the home of the University of Iowa (Hawkeyes). Sandy has authored several books and has traveled the world lecturing & teaching Ultrasound of the Eye. She feels so fortunate to have helped so many people with unique eye problems. We are overjoyed to be in the Asheville area for over 19 years now and have worked diligently to develop a true Green, Organic, and Sustainable community just 23 minutes north of Asheville called Mountain Meadows on Crooked Creek. Just recently we converted our Biltmore Studio & Biltmore Loft in Downtown Asheville to vacation rentals. We want to use them often too so we loaded them up with the most comfortable and convenient furnishings and electronics to go along with all of the exciting energies in Downtown Asheville. Excellent health in all physical, mental, and spiritual ways has been our positive passion for a long time and we feel so privileged to enjoy our kids, Cherie, Nicole & Donnie along with our grand daughters Amanda, Maddie, & Tabitha. Please give us a call at 828 230-0755 so that we may answer any questions you have.

Bernie Byrne purchased this studio in 1999

Downtown was not yet hip when we decided to buy a building in Asheville in the year 1999. We thought, hey, wouldn't it be a creative, FUN time and investment to renovate an old building and be able to have a small apartment where we could stay sometimes? Though our farm was only 20 minutes north, we felt this downtown option would really be the lap of luxury (it is)! We were fortunate to find an old, 2 story corner building with an art studio and gallery on the main floor, an apartment above, and a (dilapidated) basement. There were dozens of coats of paint on both the brick walls as well as the old Heartwood Pine floors in the retail area and the Biltmore Loft; the frontage was a 1940's aluminum; and the owners were relectant to sell. After friendly negotiations, and paying much more than we really thought it was worth (does that sound familiar?), we went to work redesigning and putting together a construction crew. This 18 inch brick walled, ugly and decrepit dinosaur circa 1885 building is now transformed and on the National Historic Register on a gem of a corner surrounded by thriving restaurants, shops, galleries, coffee houses, a new Asheville City parking deck, and the new A-loft Hotel (part of the international Starwood Hotel systems). We feel so fortunate to be part of a bustling downtown that still retains its historic character and charm!

We've said it all before and we'll say it again - you'll just LOVE being Downtown right in the middle of it all with kind and caring folks all around and exciting things all about! The coziness and simplicity of the Biltmore Studio with its small patio surrounded by a French Cut Fence and personally designed wooden gate opener and closure has a parking spot right outside the Studio fence. Next door you'll visit Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS; view the Fine Arts Theatre across the street where you will see artsy new independent movies; just a block away enjoy The Orange Peel, considered by Rolling Stone Magazine to be one of the best music venues in the nation; organic minded bodies will resonate with the French Broad Co-op 1 block south and the Farmer's Market down the street on Wednesday afternoon plus the City Market a few blocks away on Saturday mornings, in season; take a slow walk in the delightfully designed Pack Square Park up the street with its grassy areas and trees, water features, and its leisurely promenade - great for sitting, musing, and people watching; how about Broadway quality shows at Pack Square in the Diana Wortham Theatre just 1 block up the way?; a plethora of natural 'farm to table' restaurants are tantalizing; the original craft brewery in Asheville, Highland Brewery, was borne in the basement environs of Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria right across the street; the Drum Circle, our primal beat, is our go-to on Friday nights - could we be so lucky?

Beautiful well maintained studio right in the heart of downtown. We had an amazing stay and loved being able to walk everywhere. Well stocked with everything you might need. We will definitely try to stay here again when we return to Asheville.

Owner's Response: Kate...the convenience of 'walking everywhere' is such an amenity. Sandy and I love to stay there too and we always consider whether anything needs to be added. One Guest recently asked us if we had an umbrella in the Studio and we realized that an umbrella stand would be the critical purchase as most folks bring umbrellas with them, even in their suitcases. Happy you enjoyed your stay, Kate......Bernie

Bernie was incredibly helpful with pre-arrival tips/recommendations and responded to additional questions once we were there. The location couldn't be better. We were close enough to everything that it was easy to stop back by in the middle of the day but it was also very quiet at night.

The studio is very clean and well equipped with everything you will need, even fresh, local coffee. The off-street parking is also incredibly convenient. We would recommend to anyone who visits Asheville!

The studio at 39 biltmore was a perfect place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary in asheville. My husband and I had never visited before so we were very optimistic after reading former reviews for the studio. They were absolutely accurate and we are so glad we chose this spot. The location was within a 5-8 minute walk to all of the spots we visited - from restaurants and coffee shops to the downtown area where a beer festival was going on during our visit. We rented bikes just down the road and took an 8 minute drive to the biltmore and the grove park inn! Everything was right around the corner! Overall the studio had great amenities (which we didn't even take advantage of since we were out exploring during our stay) but if we had we would have had everything we could have needed. Bernie was communicative, attentive to detail and had great suggestions of places to eat and visit during our stay. Thanks for making our first trip to asheville and our first anniversary such a memorable one!

Owner's Response: Beth & Jon...downtown Asheville is compact enough that you can walk anywhere with 5-8 minutes and walk right out the door to 18 restaurants and pubs within 1 block. Sounds like you had FUN in Asheville on your 1st Anniversary and Beth, thanks for your good communication through this whole timeframe. we look forward to seeing you two on your 2nd Anniversary - there are still a lot of things to do!

My husband and I decided to take an impromptu visit to Asheville earlier this week. We have been to Asheville many times and have always stayed at the Grove Park Inn. We wanted to get a better feel for downtown and contacted Bernie the day before to check availability. He responded promptly and our reservations were secured. The visit was perfect. As we pulled in to Asheville an hour before check in, we were unexpectedly greeted by a call from Bernie saying the studio was ready. We were not disappointed. The location was wonderful, the studio perfectly appointed, and the parking space so convenient. We drove only twice - both times to hike the nearby trails (try the Rattlesnake Lodge trail!) - and enjoyed the convenience of the studio to stroll the town, people watch and enjoy great food. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Joan......from the Grove Park Inn to the Biltmore Studio - we feel privileged! Now you'll want to try our historical Biltmore Loft on the top (2nd) floor as it combines old brick and heartwood pine floors along with tall ceilings and, like the Studio, top tier modern conveniences. Isn't it so wonderful being in the heart of downtown Asheville and being able to walk virtually everywhere! Bernie

Location, location, location. It was hard to beat how conveniently placed this place was. Right next door to Wicked Weed, our favorite brewery in downtown Asheville and walking distance to all of the great bars and restaurants.
The unit itself wasn't huge, but big enough for the two of us. Kitchen and bathroom were both very well stocked with supplies. Having a parking space right outside was also essential for those coming from out of town and who plan to take some excursions. We'll definitely try and stay here again if/when we come back to Asheville.
