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, queen-size sleeper sofa, twin futon daybed, washer and dryer, two 27 inch TV's, Satellite, DVD player, stereo, Iphone dock, air conditioning, and a large windowseat overlooking downtown.
This one bedroom 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 are interested in experiencing what downtown Asheville is all about, you will not find a better location.
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.
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. 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. Find out why so many people are moving here!
When the Urban Nest is booked, we offer a smaller apartment option in the Grove Park neighborhood that we call the Little Sister. For more information go to our website.
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.
You can't find a better location in downtown Asheville. 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!).
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.
