    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    Welcome to our Attic, where exquisite detail dances w/ sustainable design in this lovingly crafted Attic atelier. The 600 sq. foot Attic represents the owners' (a husband & wife design team) philosophy of walking softly on the Earth while living passionately and luxuriously - yet, without excess or waste....the truest measure of "being green."

    Experiencing this well-designed small space provides clients & guests alike with a heightened spatial awareness of what is truly necessary to live well.

    Particulars: Top (3rd floor) apartment has windows on all sides & a cedar shingled covered porch on the North side to maximize cross ventilation. (There is also a large window A/C unit should you need additional cooling....) There are comfy chairs on the porch to linger...

We enjoyed our cozy romantic getaway. The neighborhood setting was wonderful. We walked to town almost every day and it was conveniently located near Trader Joe's and Harris Teeters. We loved the full kitchen (including a dishwasher) and ate most breakfasts in. The kitchen did not have a microwave and coffee maker, but the wonderful French press made impressive coffee.... more

Management response:

We're glad you enjoyed your Attic stay! We pride ourselves on guest relations & clear communications & there was some discomfort for our caretaker when she arrived from a meeting at the museum to find 4 people standing inside the Attic several hours prior to "check in" time….! In short, we're happy your stay was relaxing & turned out well.... more

Not only was the Attic itself a gorgeous retreat which made us feel happy, the owners treated us like we were their kin. We felt like little buddhas soaking up some zen. We drove to get to downtown Asheville so we could maximize our time that way, but it is not far, Asheville has great parking options, and downtown is... more

There is great off-street parking and a place to lock up bicycles on the building. It is incredibly convenient to downtown and grocery stores, but more importantly to Plant, where we ate THREE times during our stay. I very highly... more
