About Reservationist, Sarah
Growing up Santa Fe, NM I saw a unique blend of artistic community, endless outdoor opportunities, interesting history, beautiful landscapes, and a diverse mix of cultures. Though far from Santa Fe and a different climate, I arrived in Asheville in the early 90’s to practice Chinese Medicine and felt some of the same elements at play. Asheville was not well known, but you could feel the energy building and the mixture of art, landscape, environment, history and community all coming together. It reminded me of my ‘early days’ in Santa Fe. One of my closest friends was Andy Brokmeyer, who I told for several years that he needed to come to Asheville, as it was a dynamic and exciting place. We were also avid kayakers, and Asheville has been a Mecca for kayaking since the early days of the sport so I knew I could lure him out with the promise of all the great rivers in the area. He came out ‘for a visit’ and hasn’t left. That was 16 years ago. Asheville has grown into the most happening place in the region, far beyond my expectations, and has sustained an authentic, community oriented and dynamic quality. Like my dad used to say about few places, it has ‘cultural energy’.
Reservationist, Sarah purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Reservationist, Sarah chose Downtown
Though both Andy and I had done some residential real estate investment and development, 80 N Lexington was our first move into the commercial side. It was an old building, greatly in need of repair, and was a bit removed from the core downtown commercial traffic. We scraped together what we could and fixed it up, with an eye towards something special in the future. Now, many years later, North Lexington Ave is hopping, with restaurants, breweries, bars, tea houses, coffee shops, galleries and wonderful, diverse retail shops right out the door. And 80 N Lexington has been transformed into a blend of funky, hip, and industrial intertwined with lush, upscale design. A mix of style and comfort that is unique and authentically Asheville.

Great space and great location!
What a great weekend! The apartment is amazing and well decorated. It has everything one needs for visiting Asheville. Easy access/entry, comfortable living area, full kitchen and just fun to hang out and enjoy downtown living. The bottle of wine and snacks were very thoughtful!
The location is perfect. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, and breweries nearby. We parked our car at the Rankin garage and walked everywhere.
Thank you for an amazing stay. We loved every minute of our trip!

Mona, we are overjoyed to hear you appreciated the hard work of our Team that we hope adds to our guest's experience. We are grateful for your review as well as your loyalty. Looking forward to your next stay in Asheville!
Perfect Downtown Stay! Right in the Action!
This is an amazing property! I'm always skeptical when online reviews are rated 5* (because nearly everything is "five star" these days...). This is one VRBO listing that deserves all the rave reviews! Immaculately clean, particularly the kitchen. Great sets of cookware, coffee, spices. Small details that make you feel welcomed. Excellent shower. Plush towels (and plenty of them). We felt very safe with the 3 separate key pads for entry. We parked overnight at the garages 1 block away for $12/day. Starting Sunday evening at 6pm the street parking is free until Monday morning, so we took advantage of Sat evening/Sunday to save 1 day of paid parking. Easily walk-able to all the breweries, bars, shops, and restaurants. Thanks 80 Lexington! Why pay the same rate to stay at a small hotel room, when you can have you own larger place?!
Your detailed review is greatly appreciated. You've highlighted everything that we hope guests value when choosing 80 Lex for their Downtown Asheville stay. Thank you!
