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...

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?

Awesome place in awesome city with awesome people

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Biltmore Studio was awesome. Location was close to everything. Close to local art shops, pubs, restaurants, and parks. The only time we drove was to the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock, and Whitewater Rafting. You don't have to hop in a car to get a good meal. Huge plus is there is off street parking in well it area. Never felt unsafe in area. Although we didn't spend a great deal at the studio, the time we did spend there was above accommodating. Everything was super clean and the studio had a nice zing to it. Decor was not outdated. Very welcoming. Bed slept well and did not sag. Bathroom was super clean. Although we ate out much of the time since we wanted to explore the local cuisine, everything needed was there to cook. Although the studio is in the heart of everything, street noise was minimal if at all. I will say I had no problems sleeping. AC was cool. No problems there either. Bernie communicated well prior to arrival to welcome us and gave us recommendations. Being a foodie, I researched quite a bit before visiting but many of the restaurants we put on the list to visit were on Bernie's. I recommend White Duck Taco Shop (best tacos I have ever ate - tried Korean BBQ tacos, Lamb Gyro tacos, Crunchy shrimp tacos, fish tacos, black bean tacos, Steak and cheese tacos, all two thumbs up), Wicked Weed for Beer - some of the best beer in Asheville, Tupelo Honey Cafe (venerated vegetable plate was great), Early Girl Eatery (great for breakfast), Sunny Point Cafe (great for breakfast too (this is more like a drive - 8 minute drive), the Admiral (drive but well worth it - dive that puts out 5 star dishes in West Asheville, 8 minute drive, this where local go), High Five Coffee (top notch coffee with super awesome baristas - this is coming from myself who was a barista for 3 years), and the French Broad Chocolate Lounge which is great pastry/desert and coffee joint - lattes and coffee are great too. We visited the Biltmore Estate - we spent about 2 hours but you could spend more time if desirable. Visit Chimney Rock for a nice hike and view. Nice waterfall here as well. Whitewater rafted with French Broad Rafting and Ziplines. We did the 5 mile trip which is mainly class 2 and 3 rapids. My wife had never been rafting before and had a blast. Nice rapids but still able to enjoy the scenery with a nice adventure. The guides are great. Visit St. Lawrence Basilica as well. We did the Asheville Wine and Food Fest - fun times. Will be back to studio

Perfect Downtown Location!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for our recent getaway. It was immaculately clean, and had all the amenities you could want and more. We appreciated the nice kitchen, although we didn't make full use of all the super nice appliances (if there weren't so many great restaurants within walking distance, we would have!) Everything was very comfortable and the space was perfectly sized for two. We were grateful for the binder of restaurant menus thoughtfully put together and left out for us. The owners really put so much thought and care into stocking the apartment and they were very kind and easy to communicate with. Everything we wanted and needed was within walking distance - we parked the car and did not drive until it was time to go home. I really can't say enough about this place - it was perfect in every way, and so much better than a hotel room! The patio, especially, was lovely and the apartment is super private. We really hated to leave! Now we're just looking for an excuse to come back to Asheville so we can spend more time here! Thanks, Bernie, for everything!!

We were very pleased with our stay and highly recommend the Biltmore Studio for those looking for a clean and modern place that is well located within the Downtown scene. The studio is well designed - we were impressed with how many nice features fit into a small space. We didn't use the kitchen but it was fully outfitted. It was our first time to Asheville and we enjoyed walking to the restaurants and shops. A drive to the entrance to of the Biltmore Plantation took less than a 10 minutes. Communication with owner was quick and easy - thanks again, Bernie!

Great location--cozy place.

You absolutely cannot beat the location and convenience of this accommodation. This well-appointed studio has everything you need to feel comfortable and at-home, and all of downtown Asheville, a wonderfully walkable place, is right at your doorstep. Highly recommended. One of our friends, an Asheville native, was impressed and said it was a terrific bargain for the location, so it has a local's stamp of approval!

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
