  • Perfect way station on our way through Asheville on a 3 month southern US tour.


    We have been on the road for two months mostly camping in our teardrop trailer. This was a perfect break and regroup and do some laundry. Convenient to town, great food, and the BR Parkway. (It's just 2 miles up the road!) Bob was an awesome host and responsive to our needs. If we get back this way again, we'd re-book here for sure. Cool place, and lovingly cared for.Bill 'n Lorien

  • Peaceful retreat


    The loft is in the woods, across the street from a bubbling brook. We enjoyed the peacefulness when we were not close by in Asheville doing all thing things the city has to offer. The proprietors provisioned the loft with some things I did not expect; thus exceeding our expectations.

  • Great place to stay and outstanding customer service!


    We were very pleased with this vacation rental before we even got there because the owner was very flexible and accommodating when we had to change our dates; communication was responsive and friendly. The loft apartment itself is nicely decorated, very clean, comfortable, and well-stocked with amenities. It's in a quiet, pretty, wooded setting, very convenient to downtown Asheville, Biltmore Village, and other area attractions. I highly recommend this lodging and hope to return someday. Thank you, Bob and Peggy!

  • Such a great place to explore Asheville


    This two bedroom Loft apartment was just what the doctor ordered. The Loft was clean, comfortable and inviting, and fully stocked with everything you would need during your stay. The Host was very gracious and greeted us with a smile and a handshake. Asheville downtown is just a short drive from the Loft, and there are plenty of shops and grocery stores close by. This is a perfect spot to explore Asheville. I would definitely stay here again.
