Overview

About the property

Studio 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

(our Cancellation Policy is at the end of these paragraphs)

Welcome to our historic, modernized Biltmore Studio with a dedicated parking space right outside the French Cut wooden fence alongside the patio, full kitchen, Sofa Bed (more than 2 people add $30/person/night) smack-dab in the heartbeat of Downtown with some of the best restaurants, galleries, music venues, theaters, and shops just steps from your door. The Biltmore Studio is framed with 16 inch brick walls for your quiet enjoyment in the cacophony of Downtown Asheville, though be aware of some 'character noises' from the footsteps on the Heartwood pine floors above during business hours. Be advised that 3 adults in these premises is a bit tight (no complaints, though) and you may want to consider our larger Biltmore Loft in the same building at www.homeaway.com/3013847. The Studio has its own parking space by the wooden gated entrance in our French Cut Fence and small patio with new Keypad keyless door access - easy and safe - sleeps 3 comfortably!

You'll be enamored with the earthy feel of this walk-out (open bedroom design). You'll find all the luxurious trappings including: high speed 16 mb download, wireless DSL internet connection; flat screen HDTV with Netflix movies and TV shows; 3-D Blu Ray Disk and DVD Player with a small library of select movies; new living room and bedroom suites with gel memory foam mattress & pillow top on the Queen sized bed; and new stainless steel refrigerator and range. How about seating yourself in the umbrage of the maple trees in the comfortable patio of the Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS next door, the world class venue of the 500 seat Diana Wortham Theater at the top of the block, the awesome fire pitted patio of the Wicked Weed Restaurant & Brewery just down the street, or the uniquely designed Pack Square Park starting at the Obelisk at the top of the block?

You may also be interested in our elegant 39 Biltmore Loft in the same building for $210-$265/night + Holiday rates with high ceilings, exposed brick, and a private gated entrance facing Biltmore Ave. (www.HomeAway.com/3013847).

A new 400+ Biltmore Ave. Garage is right across the side street behind and under the a-Loft Hotel; Pack Square Park is on the top of the block; Mast General Store is 1/2 block; the Fine Arts Theater is across the street; the nationally regarded music venue, the Orange Peel, is 1 block; and the organic French Broad Co-op grocery is 1 block yonder.

We could say more but you'll just have to explore and experience the rest of the beauty and excitement on your own...

Welcome to Downtown Asheville.... Welcome to the our 39 Biltmore Studio!

About Bernie Byrne

Sandy and Bernie Byrne are Iowa born via Coral Gables/Miami FL. Bernie grew up on a farm in northwest Iowa and Sandy in Iowa City, the home of the University of Iowa (Hawkeyes). Sandy has authored several books and has traveled the world lecturing & teaching Ultrasound of the Eye. She feels so fortunate to have helped so many people with unique eye problems. We are overjoyed to be in the Asheville area for over 19 years now and have worked diligently to develop a true Green, Organic, and Sustainable community just 23 minutes north of Asheville called Mountain Meadows on Crooked Creek. Just recently we converted our Biltmore Studio & Biltmore Loft in Downtown Asheville to vacation rentals. We want to use them often too so we loaded them up with the most comfortable and convenient furnishings and electronics to go along with all of the exciting energies in Downtown Asheville. Excellent health in all physical, mental, and spiritual ways has been our positive passion for a long time and we feel so privileged to enjoy our kids, Cherie, Nicole & Donnie along with our grand daughters Amanda, Maddie, & Tabitha. Please give us a call at 828 230-0755 so that we may answer any questions you have.

Bernie Byrne purchased this studio in 1999

Why Bernie Byrne chose Asheville

Downtown was not yet hip when we decided to buy a building in Asheville in the year 1999. We thought, hey, wouldn't it be a creative, FUN time and investment to renovate an old building and be able to have a small apartment where we could stay sometimes? Though our farm was only 20 minutes north, we felt this downtown option would really be the lap of luxury (it is)! We were fortunate to find an old, 2 story corner building with an art studio and gallery on the main floor, an apartment above, and a (dilapidated) basement. There were dozens of coats of paint on both the brick walls as well as the old Heartwood Pine floors in the retail area and the Biltmore Loft; the frontage was a 1940's aluminum; and the owners were relectant to sell. After friendly negotiations, and paying much more than we really thought it was worth (does that sound familiar?), we went to work redesigning and putting together a construction crew. This 18 inch brick walled, ugly and decrepit dinosaur circa 1885 building is now transformed and on the National Historic Register on a gem of a corner surrounded by thriving restaurants, shops, galleries, coffee houses, a new Asheville City parking deck, and the new A-loft Hotel (part of the international Starwood Hotel systems). We feel so fortunate to be part of a bustling downtown that still retains its historic character and charm!

What makes this studio unique

We've said it all before and we'll say it again - you'll just LOVE being Downtown right in the middle of it all with kind and caring folks all around and exciting things all about! The coziness and simplicity of the Biltmore Studio with its small patio surrounded by a French Cut Fence and personally designed wooden gate opener and closure has a parking spot right outside the Studio fence. Next door you'll visit Double D's Coffee & Dessert BUS; view the Fine Arts Theatre across the street where you will see artsy new independent movies; just a block away enjoy The Orange Peel, considered by Rolling Stone Magazine to be one of the best music venues in the nation; organic minded bodies will resonate with the French Broad Co-op 1 block south and the Farmer's Market down the street on Wednesday afternoon plus the City Market a few blocks away on Saturday mornings, in season; take a slow walk in the delightfully designed Pack Square Park up the street with its grassy areas and trees, water features, and its leisurely promenade - great for sitting, musing, and people watching; how about Broadway quality shows at Pack Square in the Diana Wortham Theatre just 1 block up the way?; a plethora of natural 'farm to table' restaurants are tantalizing; the original craft brewery in Asheville, Highland Brewery, was borne in the basement environs of Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria right across the street; the Drum Circle, our primal beat, is our go-to on Friday nights - could we be so lucky?

Amazing location in downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay in downtown Asheville. It was our first trip and the location was perfect for parking our car (in the provided space) and roaming around the downtown area. Loved that it was close to shopping, restaurants and breweries. We felt welcomed and right at home from the moment we opened the door. Very spacious for a studio. The property was clean and has been very well maintained. We enjoyed not having to worry about toiletries such as shampoo and conditioner--all was provided. Bernie was great about leaving restaurant recommendations with walking distance. Loved the Wicked Weed brewery and the Thirsty Monk--beautiful sunset from their rooftop bar. Would definitely recommend to couples or a small family.

This studio is fabulous. The location is great & has it's own parking spot. The studio is very clean and all necessities are supplied. The owners also include an Asheville map and list of top restaurants and attractions. You can't ask for a better place to stay for location & cost. We will be staying there again soon!

Awesome space

  • 5 of 5

This space is lovely, close to all the best restaurants in Downtown Asheville. Bernie's suggestions were perfect, loved the notebook with menus it made meal selection easier. The space is small but had everything we needed, full kitchen and washer and dryer made our extended stay great. I hope to get back to Asheville and will stay with Bernie again.

Relaxing Weekend in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Asheville in this perfectly placed studio. The location is AWESOME and close to all areas, whether you want to tour local breweries or enjoy all the downtown area has to offer. Parking spot was a bonus and we never had to use the car to get around. If we are back in Asheville in the near future we will definitely look into staying at this studio again.
