Welcome to our historic, modernized Biltmore Studio with a dedicated parking space right outside the French Cut wooden fence alongside the patio, full kitchen, Sofa Bed (more than 2 people add $30/person/night) 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 of the retail store 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).

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, the world class venue of the 500 seat Diana Wortham Theater at the top of the block, the awesome fire pitted patio of the Wicked Weed Restaurant & Brewery just down the street, or the uniquely designed Pack Square Park starting at the Obelisk at the top of the block?

You may also be interested in our elegant 39 Biltmore Loft in the same building for $210-$265/night + Holiday rates with high ceilings, exposed brick, and a private gated entrance facing Biltmore Ave. (www.HomeAway.com/3013847).

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 16 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?

Biltmore Studio is a great place to stay in the heart of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Biltmore Studio for two nights in September 2017. We parked our car on Friday afternoon and never moved it all weekend, we walked everywhere. The studio is in great condition with everything looking new and up to date. The full kitchen is well equipped and could be used to cook full meals. The living room is comfortable and the bed had a great mattress (we slept well). The owners have included nice touches including coffee, teas, along with soaps and shampoo. Everything was in great working order. The studio is quiet, during the day when the store upstairs is open, we heard people walking around on the wood floor (but it is not loud). We saw The Drive By Truckers play two shows at The Orange Peel which is only 3 or 4 blocks away. We explored the South slope and ate at Wicked Weed, Burial Brewery (Salt&Smoke), and went to the Saturday morning farmer's market on North Market St. We picked up supplies for dinner one night at the Asheville Food Co-op across from the Wicked Weed. They have great choices of salads, breads, and to go food. Overall, the Biltmore Studio is a great place to stay and the owners are responsive and easy to work with. Thanks again. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Best possible location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is in the best possible location for downtown Asheville. Literally steps from Wicked Weed, it is just perfect for walkable eating and shopping. Extremely clean unit, the owners have thought of absolutely everything. It will be my first choice for our weekends away-

Owner's Response: Laurie...our housekeepers do a great job of keeping the Biltmore Studio pristine so we'll send your kudos along to them. With a plethora of restaurants, bars, galleries, coffee nooks, and shops (along with the Fine Arts Theater across the street) so close one doesn't have to go very far to see and feel a glimpse of everything. Sandy and I look forward to your return visit! Bernie

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We can't thank a Bernie enough for our perfect stay! This condo is in a prime location for great food and South Slope brewery hopping. He's truly thought of everything to make this spot comfy and a "home away" from home. We can't wait to come back! -Sam & Erin

Excellent location and accommodations...would book again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

While this studio is located in the middle of all the action that downtown Asheville has to offer, it really is charming and cozy as described. We were able to walk to all the shops, galleries, restaurants and craft breweries in the area. The layout was great and the studio was very clean and comfortable. While this is technically a studio, it almost feels like three rooms since you walk into the sitting room, then the kitchen, then the bedroom and bathroom. Since the entrance is in the back of the building, it feels very private and safe when entering and exiting. Having our own parking space was SO nice and convenient for the day we went to the Biltmore. We got a kick out of the Double D coffee shop (located in a permanently parked double decker London bus) next door - a good example of Asheville's creative streak. We caught the Friday night drum circle in Pritchard Park which was really fun. The location of this studio allowed us to walk to the plethora of amazing restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the studio was at night. I would love the opportunity to stay here again.

Perfect place to stay in downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

The studio is located in the heart of downtown, close to restaurants, shops and galleries- but is very quiet. There is a dedicated parking spot right by the front door. The apartment is attractive, spotless and well equipped. The owners are very responsive. The location can't be beat!
