About Angie

Jamie and Angie - We live in Denver, NC with our two daughters and our dogs Zoe and Barley (named after our favorite restaurant in Asheville). We have considered Asheville our home away from home for over 15 years and feel very fortunate to own a little piece of Asheville!

Angie purchased this condo in 2014

Why Angie chose Asheville

This loft is right in the heart of downtown and is just steps away from shopping, restaurants, art galleries, craft breweries and night life. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

My sisters and I loved the Loft. It was cozy and comfortable. Everything could have possibly wanted was there. It was the perfect location for walking to tons of breweries. Thank you for everything! We LOVED it.

Epic Weekend at Fantastic Downtown Loft

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I decided to celebrate our Birthdays (day apart) in Asheville for a long weekend. We specifically looked for downtown, two bedroom and two baths, as we wanted to include our best friends. The Loft at 51 College Street could not have been more perfect. So charming and so nicely appointed. We all really felt at home there and wanted for nothing. The beds and baths were very comfortable and I could have cooked anything in the kitchen, as it was fully equipped (but hey - it was my birthday - and I sure wasn't cooking on THIS trip). This location is truly steps away from everything. We parked our vehicles at the Rankin Street Deck (across the street) and didn't use them until we left ! We visited 10 different breweries this trip, and ate our way through downtown. Don't miss Table Restaurant for Sunday Brunch (directly across the street) or Vault for THE BEST burger (also across the street) we also hit The Med for breakfast (Greek diner- same block), a local favorite where the wait staff knows everyone and you hear them ask "the usual, honey ?" All in all, we had an epic weekend and The Loft at 51 College Street was the perfect place to rest, refresh and recharge for each adventure that we planned throughout the weekend. Thanks for a great getaway - we will definitely be back !

Fabulous accommodation, fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our accommodation in Asheville! We usually stay in Bed and Breakfasts but so far this is our favorite place! We were within walking distance of most things we wanted to do.

Highlights of our weekend were -

1-Tour of the French Broad chocolate factory

2-New Belgium Brewery

3-The Book Exchange Champagne Bar

4-One World Brewery

5- right next door at Mojo's...their Bluegrass Sunday Brunch!

We will definitely be back!!

Stayed in this unit over Memorial Day 2016 for a family reunion. Excellent location in heart of Asheville.The unit was both extremely comfortable and beautiful. Everything was clean, high quality and well maintained. Angie provided excellent customer service and communicated with us throughout the process. Excellent recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Loved Tupelo Honey for breakfast! Would highly recommend property. Only downside to whole process was unexpectedly small size of second bedroom. Other than that--could not have been happier.

Lovely. Clean and nicely decorated. A great location.

  • 4 of 5

The location could not have been better. Within walking distance of lots of things to do in downtown Asheville. Angie was very accommodating in several ways. I needed to add another night to my initial reservation, and she responded within 20 minutes . . . at about 11:30 p.m.! We arrived a little early and Angie was quick to reply to my text asking if we could check in an hour early, allowing us to only park once in the nearby garage. Thanks, Angie!
