COME STAY AT OUR LUXURY LOFT IN DOWNTOWN ASHEVILLE: STEPS AWAY FROM ALL THE FUN!

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Brand New, European Design, In Historic Building Downtown, Walk Everywhere

Welcome to Asheville!

The short story

Loft living with a view of downtown roofs and mountains in the distance: it doesn't get any better than this! Seven hundred square feet with a separate bedroom and sleek bathroom, modern kitchen and lovely living space on the second floor of the brand new remodeled Rankin Press building in the middle of downtown. All the character of a historic building (original exposed brick walls and hardwood floors, high ceilings) combines with stylish, modern amenities (stainless appliances, modern bathroom, washer/dryer, elevator, chic street entrance) to give you the most comfortable life in Asheville. Step outside and you are in the middle of everything: the culinary, shopping and art mecca of Asheville. Step inside and you are in a quiet, secluded urban hideaway. Secure off street parking available right across from your front door in city operated parking deck. Designated loading bay by front door for easy arrival and departure. Sleeps 2 to 4 in comfortable, clean and quiet luxury.

Let us tell you a little more

Come experience the luxe and quiet of our spacious loft in the heart of downtown. Furnished and decorated with a European design sense, modern yet warm and inviting, you will start relaxing the minute you step inside. Everything is designed for your comfort. Clean, peaceful and perfectly outfitted: our loft has everything for the discerning traveler. Spend the day eating, drinking and making merry, or spend it rafting, hiking and playing (you can store your road or mountain bikes in our building). Then come back to your centrally located loft, rest, put your feet up, and get ready to go out again into the vibrant nightlife of Asheville. There is a restaurant with a James Beard Award nominated chef on the corner of your street (Table); his den of mixology, with out-of-this-world cocktails, is one flight of stairs up from there (The Imperial Life). Or how about a loungey bar for chocolate lovers, with wine, of course, but also handmade bonbons and spectacular deserts so good that the line often stretches out the door (French Broad Chocolate Lounge)? Walk down the street and around the corner, and you're there. You are also next door to the south's finest shoe store with its 300 brands and staff of personal shoppers (Tops for Shoes). Those are just a few of the many, many fun things to do in asheville. You can catch a play at the Asheville Community Theatre or a movie at the Fine Arts cinema. Or how about a leisurely stroll to the River Arts District, to visit artists in their studios and have a beer at The Wedge? Speaking of beer, famous local artisanal beers and their brewers are calling your name! See what's brewing and sample what's new at the many downtown bars and breweries. Watch the sun set on Cold Mountain at Asheville's highest elevation bar (The Sky Bar). Go hear a live band at the famous Orange Peel. Take a Pilates or yoga class and have a spa treatment. So many things to do, so much to see. You can go days without using your car, which is safely and affordably parked, off street, right across from your front door.

Our loft is brand new, and we are very proud of it. We are Ricardo (born in Colombia, entrepreneur and business owner) and Claudia (born in Holland, writer and interior designer). We moved to Asheville 10 years ago, after traveling and living all over the world, and we love our town! It is a wonderful place to raise our family and we would love to share its fun and rewarding experiences with you. Asheville has everything: stunning natural beauty surrounding it, vibrant culture, great food, distinctive architecture, interesting people, a relaxed and safe pace, and so many things to do, see, taste and enjoy that you will want to stay longer. We are both deeply involved in the local community and know the restaurateurs, artists, micro brewers, outdoor enthusiasts (or Pilates teachers, massage therapists, chocolatiers, zipliners,) that you want to meet. We look forward to welcoming you!

Claudia Konijn purchased this apartment in 2013

We had our eye on this building for a long time. It housed the Rankin Press, a historical Asheville business, and has a real urban appeal. It is beautifully situated and we were very excited when we heard it would be renovated for mixed residential and commercial use. Our block is so vibrant and has so much to offer; shops, restaurants, bars, a salon, a brewery, residential apartments, galleries. But our loft is away from the street and offers complete quiet and seclusion, in the middle of downtown! Truly the best of all worlds.

Our loft has the beauty of a historic building: original wooden floors, exposed brick walls, high ceilings. But it is modern at the same time, and very easy to live in. What is most attractive about it is the sense of privateness and retreat that you get when you step inside. We love spending time here!

AMAZING LOFT IN PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this beautiful loft in downtown Asheville! The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything downtown has to offer. Easy parking and the owner provides great recommendations for local hot spots. The loft is well appointed with everything you need to enjoy your time away. This is truly a "show up and enjoy" rental. Claudia is so easy to work with and the personal touches make this feel like staying at a friend's house. If you want to experience Asheville like a local, this is the rental for you. I'll definitely be back!

PERFECT URBAN GETAWAY WITH GREAT ACCESS TO HIKING AND BIKING.

  • 5 of 5
We completely enjoyed our stay at this beautiful loft space in Downtown Asheville. The loft is well appointed and comfortable. The full kitchen allowed us to stay in one night and make a delicious shrimp pasta dinner - an appreciated respite from eating out every night! Its the perfect spot for exploring the downtown area from Tops Shoes (right next door) to the excellent yoga studios within walking distance, and of course, many delicious restaurant choices. We also explored beyond Asheville and spent one day in the Great Smoky Mountains hiking the Appalachian Trail at Newfound Gap, and another two days hiking in Dupont State Forest (less than an hours drive) where we hiked to six different waterfalls and saw amazing bird life. The owners were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and much more. We'd highly recommend this loft rental for a romantic getaway with urban and adventure options at your fingertips.

Owner's Response: Thank you! With all the wonderful restaurants in the surrounding blocks, not much cooking goes on at our loft, so I'm glad that you used our kitchen and found it well equipped. And great that you used the loft as a base for hiking and exploring the amazing mountains around Asheville. We hope you come back soon!

WEEKEND STAY IN ASHEVILLE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here. Two things have to be a priority for a stay here, location and high end. The furniture, bedding and fixtures were all very high end making for an incredibly comfortable stay. Even better was the location. Not only are you right downtown and able to walk to just about everything Asheville, but you are on a quiet side street off College, making noise irrelevant. There is a definite wow factor when you walk in to this apartment.
Couple of things to note. Parking, yes there is a very convenient parking garage right across the street which was never full. However, keep in mind that it can add up if you take your car in and out throughout the day (think road trips to nearby towns). Also, glass lets tons of light into the apt throughout the day to show the beautiful floors, high ceilings and cabinetry; however, if sitting on the couch and looking off at the nearby mountains is your thing you might be better suited elsewhere. This place is all about style, comfort and location.

DOWNTOWN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the loft as a weekend getaway. As Asheville residents it was extremely enjoyable to be downtown and in walking distance to everything for an entire weekend. The check-in was smooth and easy. We were given a very detailed list of how to navigate our way around the apartment. The Rankin loft's convenient location is in walking distance to many great restaurants and breweries. The loft had every amenity we could possibly need, everything was well organized, and easy to manage. We loved the modern decor throughout the apartment and the bluetooth sound system is a great touch! We would easily recommend the loft to our visiting friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words! We are so glad to hear that you were comfortable and had everything you needed at the loft. Isn't it great to walk everywhere? So much to see, do and taste, and all within a few blocks of 'home'. It's a compliment to have Ashevillians choose our place for a special downtown getaway in their own city! Hope you come and stay with us again soon.

PERFECT ROMANTIC GETWAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I needed a getaway, but couldn't actually leave town. We live in Asheville, but rarely get to experience all that downtown has to offer. We had a perfect experience staying here at the loft. It is so well appointed and comfortable, and it had everything we could possibly want! I am a bit of a Princess And The Pea when it comes to sleeping well. I travel with an eye mask and ear plugs and even a sleep aid in case it's bright or noisy or uncomfortable. I didn't need any of them! The bed is wonderfully comfortable, with deliciously soft sheets and perfect pillows. I slept better than I had in such a long time! Even though the loft is right down town, it is quiet and private. We walked to dinner, and then to breakfast the next morning. We could not have had a more perfect getaway! Thank you Claudia!
