Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Our place on Beaucatcher is a modern, loft-style apartment that has everything you need and suits the vacationer or business traveler. This house clings onto the side of Beaucatcher mountain on a dead-end road giving one the feel of truly being in the mountains but only 1.5 miles from the center of downtown.

The apartment is open and airy and has a nice, new kitchen if you wish to cook, or just warm-up some left-overs from one of the many downtown eating establishments. We designed and built this multi-family house 20 years ago and the main unit served as our home for several years. This particular unit has been recently renovated and is equipped with brand new furnishings. We have just opened this unit up as vacation rental for folks to take advantage of it's proximity and architectural character.

We believe you will truly enjoy your 'repose' time dwelling in this clean, 'clutter free' apartment. It is bright and open, yet very comfortable, cozy and intimate. If you are looking for something sleek, unique, and close to everything, then this apartment will satisfy your vacation desires and help create a memorable stay here in scenic Asheville.

About Mark and Sherry

I am a local architect and Asheville native and my wife Sherry is also a native of the area. Sherry has formerly worked as the manager/buyer for Grovewood Gallery for over 20-years and is heavily involved with promoting local arts and crafts. My firm concentrates primarily on healthcare design and other institutional work.

Mark and Sherry purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Mark and Sherry chose Asheville

We built this property as our primary home with rentals units as well and wanted to create a real sense of place on this challenging small, steep lot. The design is a simple vertical scheme with a relatively small footprint reflecting local vernacular yet the interiors are modern. This is an example of sustainable and sensitive design, yet ironically, this type of structure could not be built today given the current ordinance...

We have people who have lived in our units and still say 'we miss that place'. Architecture is about creating a setting for people, and if done well, should instill lasting memories.

very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 days at this apartment recently. It is very modern and nice, as advertised. Very quiet area, with nice views. First trip up the mountain seemed long, but it isn't, and it was easy access, and with a designated parking place. Comfortable bed, nice kitchen and living room.

would definitely consider staying here again.

A great location for a long or short getaway

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the location and amenities of the apartment during our three night stay in Asheville. The communication was great from start to finish and everything as described on the website met or exceeded expectations. It was quiet and relaxing, yet only a few minutes from downtown Asheville and the wonderful selection of eateries that it offers. Everything was very clean and the layout made for a very comfortable stay. We would recommend this location to family and friends for future stays.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband had a great stay at Mark and Sherry's apartment. We arrived on a last minute plan for a Sunday- Thursday stay and Sherry communicated with us very promptly with our decisions for last minute travels. The apartment resides in a larger structured home that was designed and built by Mike and Sherry. The top floor has a long term renter above which we barely heard the Tennant above and presented no problems. The apartment is clean and modern with a spacious king size mattress. The bedroom has 4 windows which creates a lovely view of Asheville however it was a bit bright for us (sleep in people) without a curtain/shade. The apartment is split level space with equipped full kitchen area. This was a excellent choice to stay based of the views, close proximity to downtown, owner managed, and i love to have access to a washer/dryer during my short trips. Parking is limited, however in my car it was fine there didn't seem to be much traffic on the side of the road where we parked its basically a dead end. If we wanted to turn around we just pulled ahead a few feet in a small turn around spot. Sherry also provided a detailed itinerary book in the apartment, which i found to be a great useful tool for me. She includes local information on great food scenes, hiking trail paths, art galleries, and the best places to spend your time while you are in the area, it was nicely condensed, thank you. I would defiantly recommend their apartment for travel, we had a great time. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Natalie and David, Thank you so much for your review! We were happy we had availability to accommodate your trip! Yes, we've been thinking of getting blinds for those windows. We've had mixed feedback on that - some folks like the early morning view and some like to block out the light as much as possible ...I think we'll get the blinds and then there is an easy choice! The great thing is - the house is so high up from the road below there's no way a person could see in. Glad you enjoyed your visit - please keep us in mind for future trips! Sherry

Lovely Mountain Setting in the Heart of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time at Mark and Sherry's and took full advantage of its remote-feeling yet central location to just about everything Asheville. We scooted easily both out of town and into downtown for nightlife. We enjoyed the mountain forest setting, the pretty cardinals perched on branches outside the living room window, and the great eastern city lights in the distance at night. Sherry and Mark treated us very well, were always available and were attentive to special requests. Thanks, Mark and Sherry!!

Outstanding space, great trip!

  • 5 of 5

Sherry did a great job making sure that everything was ready for our short visit - even checking the weather for our drive! This space is magnificent and very updated with spectacular views. We loved how even in an "off-season" for Asheville we were very close to all points of interest, including Biltmore, downtown, breweries, the Mall, etc. Sherry was very professional and efficient, and the property was perfectly maintained, appointed, and extremely clean!

New Favorite Place in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was nicer than pictures portray! It was very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was great - not many rentals have king-size beds! Loved the windows and natural light! The kitchen was very well stocked, as was the bathroom.

The road leading to the apartment is steep and narrow. We used Uber - it was $5-6.50 each way to downtown (cheaper than parking!) -- use the "contact driver" option to speak to the driver and give them directions.

Sherry was very responsive - answered all questions quickly.

Can't wait to go back!

Asheville is known for it's wonderful architecture, art galleries, great restaurants and hip shops. This eclectic city in the mountains is a perfect place to explore and to make as a home base while venturing the mountains of Western North Carolina. The city offers a variety of 'urban' activities while one can spend a lifetime exploring the Southern Appalachians. The highest peak, Mount Mitchell is less than an hours drive via the Blue Ridge Parkway. These lush mountains have attracted visitors for years including George Vanderbilt who set out to build his 'dream house' - The Biltmore, which is a must see for any first-time visitor to the area. One can spend days shopping downtown and eating at some of the best restaurants in the region which offer a wide variety of ethnic tastes. The many craft breweries have touted Asheville as 'Beer City' the past few years and now Asheville has one of only four Sake Brewery's in the entire country. Asheville will indeed make a lasting impression.
