Condo in Asheville
Heart of the city ideal location, walk anywhere.
Nestled in the heart of downtown Asheville, this condo offers the best location for exploring the city. Restaurants, shopping, breweries are all within an easy walk. The building has just undergone a complete renovation. The main floor of the building is now home to Highland Brewing, Bun Intended Street Thai Food, Peace Love Taco, Farm Dogs, Buxton Hall Chicken Shack, The Hop Ice Cream, and the Times Coffee Bar. You will not need to travel far to eat amazing food. Bun Intended is my favorite.

Loft in Asheville
Downtown Artist Loft
If you're looking for a secluded mountain getaway this is not the place but if you are looking to be in the heart of downtown festivities then our loft is the perfect place for you! We are right in the center of all the downtown action. You are literally steps away from incredible craft beers, award-winning food and regional music. Downtown is lively especially at night where you can hang out and see a local band or the drum circle then sleep late then head downstairs for a massage.

Your guide to Asheville

Introduction

Tucked into North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is surrounded by old-growth forests, tumbling waterfalls, and a handsome stretch of the Appalachian Trail. But beyond its world-class wilderness, the city is known for its enduring Gilded Age architecture and bluegrass musical traditions, as well as a thriving art scene. And if that’s not enough, have a beer: Asheville boasts a staggering number of craft breweries, many within walking distance of the music venues and art galleries of the up-and-coming South Slope and River Arts districts. These formerly industrial neighborhoods have breathed new life into the city, and are excellent places to hang out in between trips to the mountains.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Asheville

Asheville has a subtropical climate, which means that the summer months are warm and humid while winters are comparatively mild. From June through August, temperatures peak in the mid-to-high 80s, while December through February they range from the high 20s to the high 40s, with occasional snowfall on the city’s surrounding peaks. From March to May and September through early November, Asheville’s temperatures typically hover between the high 50s and the mid-70s, ideal for staying in one of the local cabins and exploring the area’s picturesque wildflower blooms in spring and foliage during fall. However, precipitation is regular throughout the year—so pack accordingly.


Top things to do in Asheville

Biltmore Estate

Among Asheville’s most prominent landmarks is this 250-room mansion built for George Washington Vanderbilt II during the height of the Gilded Age. The opulent 19th-century chateau (which is the largest privately owned home in the United States) sits on 8,000 acres and comprises sprawling grounds designed by a famous landscape architect. Visitors can tour the historic manor and massive estate, which includes a rose garden, farm, shop-filled village, and an award-winning winery.

The Asheville Urban Trail

This 1.7-mile walking trail pieces together 30 stops around downtown Asheville that celebrate an important person or moment in the city’s history—each marked with a public sculpture. The self-guided tour takes about two hours to complete, and begins at Pack Square Park. Printed maps are available at the information center.

The North Carolina Arboretum

Located about 20 minutes by car from downtown Asheville, these 434 acres of botanically diverse gardens pack in more than 10 miles of pet-friendly hiking trails. The outdoor attraction sits within the Pisgah National Forest, which includes more than half a million acres of wilderness, with forested mountains, whitewater rivers, and photo-worthy waterfalls.
