Located in: Asheville
Check our reviews from 13 years of hosting guests. Stay in luxurious accommodations in this tastefully renovated loft right in the heart of downtown Asheville - 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 in one bedroom, queen-size sleeper sofa in living room with memory foam mattress, twin bed in second very small room, washer and dryer, 1 40" smart TV in bedroom, 1 48" flat panel TV in living room, Satellite, DVD player, iPhone dock/stereo, central air conditioning, and a large window seat for great people-watching below. See our video on our website for more info: www.ashevilleurbannest.com

This 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's just 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 to use as a home away from home, as a base for their downtown Asheville explorations. Mature adults only--not a place for college students to come and party. Many guests report how quiet the building is, but there are times that you may hear the noises of city life outside as we are surrounded by restaurants, music venues and shops in the heart of downtown. They don't roll up the sidewalks at 8pm.

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. The Downtown Urban Nest is within easy walking distance to 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.

Parking options for your car, if you bring one, are in the public lots across from the condo (the Rankin Deck and the Civic Center lot), and there are meters on both sides of the building. Parking in the decks is pretty inexpensive for the heart of a very popular city ($12/24 hours). Meters are free after 6pm and all day on Sundays and holidays. If you are going to be arriving on a Friday or Saturday night, know that events may be happening that take up much of the parking in the decks. If you are staying in the busy months (summer and October), know that parking can be a pain and best to park your car and walk or Uber, and just try to avoid arriving dinner time on weekends, when it's most crowded.

Drovers Way and The Nest On Broadway, our two other short term rental properties, are just down the street from the Urban Nest. Ask us about it if the Nest is booked.
The address of the Urban Nest is 51 College St. between Lexington and Haywood St.
