The Altamont is a newly renovated 1895 building on the most beautiful tree-lined street in downtown Asheville. Church Street is central to everything in downtown from Pack Square to Pritchard Park, and from the Civic Center to the Orange Peel. Park your car for your entire stay and walk to the most interesting and eclectic restaurants, shopping and nightlife!
As part of the 2010 historic and green renovation, the vacation condos were created to provide nice, comfortable and reasonably priced quarters to spend time in Downtown Asheville. Enjoy the charm of an old building while taking advantage of modern green technology. Water is heated with solar panels on the roof, all permanent light fixtures are CFL, most materials were manufactured within 500 miles of Asheville, and paint and stains are all Low VOC resulting in very high indoor air quality. Almost all the beautiful hardwood floors are original.
The renovation also created The Altamont Theatre, Asheville’s Best Listening Room for live music offering the best acoustics in the region. Spend your vacation time with us and see nationally touring artists like Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Balsam Range, California Guitar Trio, John Vezner, Mary Gauthier, Geoff Achison and many more. The theatre also presents stand-up comedy, storytelling, poetry and theatre.
Performances start at 8:00 and are usually over by 11:00 – so no late night parties going on below you.
Feel free to bring the entire family, we are child friendly.
My wonderful family enjoying our day together.

We really enjoyed our stay in Asheville. Your condo was beautiful and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything and loved the quiet setting on Church St. We will definitely come back and book your condo again. Thanks and hope to be in touch soon for our return trip.
We rented this unit because my runner husband wanted to be downtown to participate in the Asheville Half Marathon. The condo is adjacent to the Altamont Theater. The unit is pretty bare bones, small, spartanly furnished. Fairly clean. VERY noisy. The loud music from the theater runs until 11. The walls between the units are not well insulated and neighbor noise is quite high. The thermostat was set to 80 degrees when we arrived and we had to plug in lamps, etc. Sheets and towels, some dishware provided. Guest should bring everything else, including iron, ironing board, hangers, paper towels and Kleenex (TP was provided). The outdoor furniture is dirty with bird poop.
Oh, and the owner needs to vacuum the bathroom ceiling air intake vent because it is disgustingly filthy. And add another bedside light. One is pretty chintzy.
All in all, the only redeeming feature of the Altamont is the location. Next time we'll pay the higher rate to stay in one of the hotels.
The location was convenient, We were able to walk everywhere in downtown which is exactly what we wanted to do. The unit was quiet (at least until the AC came on - that was noisy). The decoration and furnishings were clean and modern. The unit has a Keurig single serving coffee maker which is appreciated when one person wakes earlier than the other. We didn't do any cooking, but we did eat take away from Tupelo Honey when their wait for a table was over an hour. That was a nice option.
There were a few negatives. There is no chest of drawers or any place to put clothes. We lived out of suitcases that were elsewhere in the unit. We found it curious that there was a washer /dryer, but nowhere to put clean clothes. As the bed takes up most of the BR so there was no room for other furniture. Also the BR lamps have dim bulbs making it impossible to read in bed.
There was no DVD player even though it it is advertised.
The pictures that show the outdoor view are misleading at best. Looking out the window we mainly saw the run-down top of the building directly behind. Standing on the balcony you could see the views in the picture. There was no chairs for sitting on the balcony.
We were contacted by the owner asking for our feedback for improvement.
Overall we did enjoy the stay and would probably stay again - bringing our own music player.
Spent 4 nights at this great place and great location.The listing was accurate, as well as the photos.
The unit was clean,and welcoming.The owner was very nice and gave great recommendations for places to go dine as well as entertainment suggestions. I was traveling alone and felt so comfortable walking back these great "diggs"at night. The street is well lite.I would recommend this property to everyone.
I would recommend The Orange Peel for music and or events. I dined at Limones, Posana,Tupelo Honey
CaCafe, Early Girl Eatery,Bouchon and Chai Pani to name a few All Excellent. Chocolate Lovers must
go French Broad Chocolate Lounge.Also went on Eating Asheville, walking food tour.excellent. Can't
wait to stay at this Citylicious "diggs" again
The condo was a perfect, restful place to get away from a normally hectic life. Church street is so peaceful and within walking distance of everything you will need. We enjoyed a variety of restaurants including Easy Over, The Noodle Shop, Table and Mediterranean just to name a few. I would highly recommend The Altamont for it was a great experience and we will return.
The listing description and photos were accurate. The condo was nicely decorated, extremely clean, and in walking proximity to everything downtown Asheville has to offer. Brian (the owner) was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. When we return to Asheville, we hope to stay at the Altamont again. Highly recommended!
Absolutely delighted with my one night stay at this lovely condo! Photos do not showcase this hidden treasure adequately! Perfect location, easy parking and walking to downtown arts district. Beautiful, clean, convenient and safe.
