About the property

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 Sherry Masters

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.

Sherry Masters purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Sherry Masters 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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a great place to get away and this certainly fit the bill. The apartment was very comfortable and well appointed. We never saw or heard the other residents. Sherry and Mark certainly assisted us in finding a "home away from home" at a very affordable rate. The full size kitchen was great and condiments were provided as well as necessary cookware to prepare meals. Even a blender!

The king size bed was very cozy as was the living room furniture. So many amenities that we would not have had if we'd stayed in a more expensive hotel. Plus they recycle! There is a washer and dryer in the unit.

Very light and bright with a mountain view. Outdoor seating was nice. No extra resort or parking fees.

We chose to drive to local attractions in the day time and Uber in the evening. Easy to get an Uber and $5-7 to downtown. Less than a 15 minute drive to Biltmore and Grove Park Inn. So many great restaurants, live music venues and art galleries. Nearby outdoor activities are plentiful.

Do yourself a favor and stay here, I can't think of a reason not to. Just don't forget some good walking shoes.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend stay here. The location is secluded, yet very close to everything! We used Uber often and never spent more than $6 for a ride to downtown Asheville. If using Uber, or for your trip there, be sure to use Google maps and to tell Uber driver to use Google. Any other system had a hard time finding the place.

The apartment was clean, stocked and provided a very comfortable stay.

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking time to give a review, and for the Uber tips! I knew several guests had used it...and once a guest had trouble with the driver not finding the apartment..maybe this is why! We're glad you had a good visit to Asheville :)

Perfect for Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at a number of Home Away properties. This one was right at the top of the list. It was clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Shortly after arriving and getting settled, Sherry stopped in to say hello and offer assistance if needed. We are very grateful that we found this gem of a place and look forward to our next visit to Asheville (where our son lives). We will defnitely contact Sherry and reserve with her again. Thank you! Gary and Anne

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.
