Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Asheville - Asheville Downtown Urban Nest

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Extra Twin Bed (Sleeps 4-5), spacious, central

Check our reviews from 9 years of hosting guests. Stay in luxurious accommodations in this downtown Asheville tastefully renovated loft - your home away from home. Everything you could need for your vacation is here: a fully equipped modern kitchen, dining area, comfortable plush queen bed, queen-size sleeper sofa, bonus twin bed in small room, washer and dryer, two 27 inch TV's, Satellite, DVD player, Iphone dock, air conditioning, and a large windowseat overlooking downtown.

This one bedroom condo was renovated in early 2005 and is on the third floor of an historic building that is in the center of downtown. Walk to all of the unique locally owned shops, art galleries, delicious restaurants, theaters, the Fine Art cinema, Pack Place and the Orange Peel for a concert. Most of Asheville's festivals start at Pack Place, and that is one block away. Park your car in the deck across the street and leave it there! Watch the Christmas Parade go by from the window and take the elevator to the first floor for a first class dining experience at the Lobster Trap, where they fly in Maine lobsters daily. If you don't feel like venturing out, help yourself to the honor wine bar in the kitchen and order up some dinner or appetizers from the Lobster Trap. If you are interested in experiencing what downtown Asheville is all about, you will not find a better location. We have a private yoga instructor and massage therapist who you can make an appointment with to come to the 'nest' while you are staying with us.

This oasis in the middle of downtown is perfect for those who want a comfortable place to relax in and use as a home away from home, a base for their downtown Asheville explorations. Mature adults only--not a place for college students to come and party.

New! 40' 'smart' HD TV - enjoy your Netflix and Hulu access - just sign into your account and see your movies on our TV.

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook wonderful meals from local ingredients you pick up at the local tailgate markets downtown on Saturdays and Wednesdays, though with so many wonderful restaurants nearby, you may opt out of cooking altogether. Asheville was chosen by Fodor's as the #1 travel destination in the world! Asheville has become known for it's many locally brewed beers, creative restaurants that use locally grown ingredients, and of course for their arts and crafts communities. Within walking distance are several wine stores, an artisan cheese store, bakeries, every type of restaurant, movie theater and music venues.

If you like the outdoors, you will find endless opportunities within an hour of downtown - hiking, mountain biking, running, ziplining, rock climbing, snow skiing, etc. See our website to hear about our favorites picnic spots and hikes nearby. Find out why so many people are moving here! If you are one of those, we proudly recommend two realtors to drive you around to see what you like.

When the Urban Nest is booked, we offer a smaller apartment option in the Grove Park neighborhood that we call the Little Sister (listing number 916282). For more information go to our website.

New for October 2014!!: Our newest 'baby', Drover's Way, is just down the street from the Urban Nest. Ask us about it if the Nest is booked.

About Lynne Harty

Lynne Harty, local artist/photographer with her husband, Steve Cohen, an artist's manager. Lynne and Steve are happy to help you plan your outdoor adventures, steer you to their favorite restaurants, or stock the kitchen with items for your arrival. Just ask. They both work downtown around the corner from the condo so you can always stop by with any questions.

Lynne and Steve love to hike and explore the area around Asheville, and are happy to share their enthusiasm. They are also very involved in the Asheville art and music community so they are a good resource for your explorations. As Asheville is a foodie haven, they do their best to keep their guests up to date on new restaurants, which is a big job these days! They just added the 'Glad to Have You' app which has recommendations on everything from Lynne's favorite women's clothing store to their favorite spot for a glass of wine.

Lynne Harty purchased this condo in 2004

Why Lynne Harty chose Asheville

You can't find a better location in downtown Asheville nor more accommodating hosts, as we've been doing this for 9 years. We love to spend the night in the condo on nights when we are going to a show at the Orange Peel, or when we just want to be able to leave the car behind after a night on the town! I've furnished the condo to feel like a quiet home away from home with everything you need. Often we'll take the elevator down to the Lobster Trap to have a quiet dinner or glass of wine (or even ask them to bring appetizers to our condo for us!). We love the old brick wall in the living room, the funky nature of our old building, and that we have a tree outside our window despite living downtown. It's a very comfortable space.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a quiet place to stay and sleep despite being in the heart of downtown Asheville. I have wireless internet which makes it easy to work in as well. Many people have used the condo as a retreat. Spa Theology, a day spa next door, will provide in room massage if requested. Also the Lobster Trap on the first floor will deliver their delicious meals to the condo as well - very nice personal service from their accommodating staff. You really won't need a car when staying at our condo as you can walk everywhere in downtown Asheville.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived in Asheville on the day of a snowstorm! Who knew Asheville has little snow and "rolls up the sidewalk" when it arrives. We still managed to be well fed, and certainly enjoyed the delights of this wonderful apartment. Our great joy was seeing the snow dusted fruit of the sweet gum tree outside our window!

Great Place

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent a week in this condo for our anniversary and we loved every minute. It is very clean, well decorated, and in the best location! We had our 3.5 month old son and it was very quiet and close for times when he needed to rest! Great for walking around the downtown area and within driving distance to all area locations. We will definitely use this place again the next time we get a chance to visit!

Best location and it felt like home!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I were in town for a wedding last weekend. We had been traveling and staying in hotels the entire week prior to staying at the Urban Nest, so it was really nice to stay in a home-y wonderful condo for the weekend!! We loved the location and the condo itself. Comfy bed and living area. There is also a guest bedroom with a twin bed that we did not use. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking to stay in Asheville!

Review of Urban Nest

  • 5 out of 5
We very much enjoyed our second visit to the Urban Nest. The condo is very comfortable and centrally located in downtown Asheville with easy walkable access to excellent restaurants, nice galleries, and great shopping. Eating lunch on the porch at the Grove Park Inn while taking in a beautiful view of the surrounding area was one of the highlights of our trip this year. We love Asheville and will be returning! Thank you for providing such a comfortable condo where we can relax on our visits.

Comfortable condo at a great location

  • 5 out of 5
This condo is within easy walking distance to many different unique restaurants and shops. It only takes a few minutes to get to the Biltmore House by car, and parking is convenient in the nearby deck. It is listed as one bedroom, but it has a small room with a small bed and a larger room with a larger bed. We found the condo to be very comfortable with two adults and a baby. Being able to get takeout from Lobster Trap within the same building was almost like having room service.

A week in Asheville

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful experience in the "Urban Nest". The apartment is clean, imaginatively decorated with art and sculptures and is ideal for a couple who want the Asheville experience, which is amazingly good food, a sophisticated city and great diversity and energy. It's right downtown, literally one minute to the park where the drum circle is held every Friday [don't miss it!]. Take the time to read Lynne's recommendations for dining out, as we tried three of her picks and all three were excellent. One to add - Chai Pani, serving Indian Street Food minutes away on Battery Avenue - amazingly good even if you have never tried Indian, and inexpensive for lunch.
A great week and my wife and I recommend this flat highly......

What a lovely condo. Several of us wanted to have a fun girls' weekend, and this was just the ticket. Communication and recommendations from Lynne were great, and the condo itself was more than we could have asked for - spotless, centrally located, beautifully decorated and most of all comfortable.
