Overview

Asheville Studio Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to our historic, modernized Biltmore Studio with a dedicated parking space right outside the French Cut wooden fence alongside the patio, 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. (www.homeaway.com/3013847).

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...

Welcome to Downtown Asheville.... Welcome to the our 39 Biltmore Studio!

About Bernie Byrne

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

Why Bernie Byrne chose Asheville

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!

What makes this studio unique

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?

Wonderful Stay in a Charming Studio

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I LOVE Asheville. Living less than two hours away, it is the perfect get away for us. We found Bernie and Sandy's Studio on VRBO and knew this would help make for a holiday to remember. The place was perfect; clean, comfortable and convenient to downtown. We are planing our next trip in a few short weeks to take advantage of a few cooking demonstrations and will seek out this place again. Thank you for opening up your studio and helping to make our trip to Asheville outstanding!

Owner's Response: Wayne...so nice you were able to enjoy the ambiance of downtown Asheville and our Biltmore Studio for a week over the Holidays. Your words capture the essence of our Studio in the heart of downtown Asheville. You were ideal, in every way, in conversation and in treating the Studio like your own and we appreciate both very much. See you in a few weeks! Bernie

Wondeful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the studio for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. First I have to mention Bernie and Sandy are great at communicating from the very beginning. They give plenty of information by email and great suggestions on what to do. Very easy to get in contact with via cell phone. The studio itself is very "user friendly", they put little helpful notes throughout the apartments. Everything looks new and is VERY clean. The place is stocked with everything you could possibly need, soap, shampoo, tissues, plenty of fluffy towels, extra pillows, hair dryer, iron, seasoning if you want to cook, pots and pans and utensils, etc. The bed was very comfortable and even the blankets were great. Not only was the space great but location was perfect too. So many great restaurants and shops in walking distance. We only stayed 2 nights and ended up spending most of our time at the Biltmore estate, it is less than a 10 minute drive to the entrance of the property itself, but the actual house might take you another 10 minutes to get to because the property is HUGE. The only restaurant we went to (not in the Biltmore Estate) was a 2 minute walk is Curate. It is a tapas style restaurant and I highly recommend it - every dish we ordered was AMAZING. Right next door the studio is the Double Decker coffee shop. Very cute shop and super convenient to just walk out your door and a few steps to get delicious coffee. There is a coffee maker and what looks like good coffee in the studio, but we're too lazy to make a coffee so didn't use it. I would definitely choose to stay here again if we come back to Asheville in the Spring.

Owner's Response: Marie...your well-conceived detail is a bonus for those individuals whom really want to know the nuances of our Biltmore Studio! The Biltmore Estate holds a pretty special place as the largest private home in America along with its 5,000 acres and its gorgeous grounds including the Biltmore Estate Winery and the flower gardens. Surely understand why you may want to plan on returning in the Spring to catch more of downtown and the Asheville area. Curate and Posana Cafe are two of our favorite restaurants. See you again, soon.. Bernie

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were well pleased with the studio. It was all we had hoped for during our trip to Asheville. We have frequented Asheville several times over the last few years and this by far was our best trip and the studio is in a great location, right in the heart of town. The unit is well appointed with all the amenities of home with a special creative touch of the owners, Bernie and Sandy. We are huge fans of the local breweries, brewpubs and great restaurants that Asheville offers and there are plenty within a short walk of the studio. We arrived on Friday afternoon, parked the car in the reserved spot and never moved it until we were leaving town on Sunday. Just a quick layout of Asheville for craft beer lovers, approximately 8 breweries and 6 brewpubs within a 10-15 minute walk of the studio. The best food and appetizers we had on this trip were at Barley's Taproom, Thirsty Monk, Lobster Trap, Mayfel's and City Bakery.We have already and will continue to suggest this studio to anyone wanting to visit Asheville. I think we have found "our place" to stay on future visits. Thanks to Bernie and Sandy for communicating with us from the first day we reserved the studio until we departed on Sunday.
