They say that wherever you go, there you are.

We say, when you go to Asheville, this is where you want to be. Right here, in the heart of Asheville. Right here, on N. Lexington Ave., in a building once home to farmers and growers and today the heart of all things trendy, artsy and quintessential.

Right here, in Unit 202 at 80 LEX: in an ultra-sleek, über-chic 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment that epitomizes the heart, soul and spirit of trendy Asheville.

Because here, in 566 square-feet of industrial loft space, exposed brick, pops of color, and layered textures, Unit 202 offers an only-in-Asheville kind of retreat: handpicked décor and vintage furnishings, curated artwork and upholstered barn doors.

A home-away-from-home that is both on trend and yet, thoroughly welcoming. A rental above trendy shops and on the same block as Asheville’s hottest restaurants and unlisted bars. A hop, skip, and a jump to the city’s best festivals. Your key to all of Asheville.

Yes, wherever you go, there you are. So, be here, in Unit 202 at 80 LEX. Welcome!

If you’ve ever wandered through downtown Asheville, then you’ve felt the wanderlust (and “wonder-lust)” of N. Lexington Avenue.

This is the most hip and quintessential street in Asheville – a place where restaurants go unadvertised and the best bars have no signs, just a door. This is a place where high-end art galleries abut record shops, upscale shoe stores, and more.

And, while Real Life may be about compromise – sacrifice This to get That – we believe that vacation should be a special time. A time you get both This and That, no compromise required.

80 LEX is your no-compromise-required destination: both urban and urbane, situated right in the beating heart of our vibrant city. Enveloped by the energy and excitement of downtown life, Unit 202 embodies and embraces the Asheville scene – a scene that draws designers and artists, creatives and music lovers, foodies and artisanal beverage aficionados alike.

Here’s what awaits:
• Dining: Asheville is a food-and-drink dream – there’s a reason named us a Top 10 Foodie City! – and from 80 LEX, you’re just minutes to much of your must-eat list, including Curate, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Limones, Rhubarb, Posana, Table, Nightbell, Chai Pani, The Market Place, Cucina 24, Mamacita’s & Wicked Weed.

• Shopping: Royal Peasantry and Earth Magick are both located directly below Unit 202, while Honeypot Vintage, the Downtown Asheville Tea Room, and Hip Replacements Clothing, among other must-see shops, are located on the same block.

• Urban Trail Art Tour: Art lovers, put yourself right in the center of Asheville’s Urban Trail, a 1.7-mile walking tour home to 30+ stops at creative landmarks, public sculptures, dioramas, and more.

• Festivals: From Downtown After Five (once a month, in summer) and the Lexington Avenue Arts Fest, to Drum Circle and Art in the Park, downtown Asheville, Lexington Avenue, and the River Arts District are ripe with arts, culture, and creative pursuits.

• Chicken Alley: Stray chickens no longer roam downtown Asheville, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pay a visit to historic Chicken Alley, just outside Unit 202.

• Live Entertainment: Asheville has a vibrant music community, but reading through dozens of venue websites can be tedious and time consuming. Checkout these venues within walking distance: Asheville Music Hall, The Orange Peel, U.S. Cellular Center (aka Civic Center), Barley’s Taproom, Jack of the Wood, One Stop, Tressa’s, Tiger Mountain Thirst Parlor, 5 Walnut Wine Bar. With so many shows happening each week, it can be easy to miss one of your favorite bands. Asheville Music Guide (AMG) is an independent, locally developed online resource that aims to help fans of live music stay up to date with shows happening at all of the venues in Asheville.

Unit 202 at 80 LEX is special. It’s probably not like anything you have at home, but it is exactly the urban-chic feel you seek in Asheville. It is industrial. It is warm. It is creative inspiration.

It is home. Or, a home-away-from-home, at least.

Unit 202 at 80 LEX is professionally designed for an ultra-custom feel. We’re talking details like brick feature walls, custom upholstery, locally made mattresses, and a curated collection of antique and new furnishings. Vintage barware. Thickly layered texture, color, and patterns. Funky wallpaper. Handpicked art.

This is where modern meets old world, and it couldn’t be any more Asheville. It’s the perfect complement to your downtown experience.

When it comes to parking, 80 LEX could just as easily be name Easy Street: parking here is simple! And that’s exactly how it should be, when you’re on vacation.

You don’t need a car to enjoy downtown Asheville (our walk score: 93!), but if you bring one, here are your options:

• Parking Decks: Our preferred parking option! Both the City of Asheville and Buncombe County operate safe, reliable and inexpensive parking decks. The first hour is free and the full-day rate is just $10, so feel free to leave your vehicle overnight. There are several parking decks within walking distance of 80 LEX; we’ll send all the details with your booking confirmation.

• On-Street Parking: There are more than 700 on-street metered parking spaces in downtown Asheville. All meters are for short-term parking (two hours or less, as marked), at a cost of $1.50 per hour. On-street metered parking is free on holidays, Sundays, and every day after 6 pm.

• Loading Zones: There is a loading zone directly in front of the 80 N. Lexington Avenue entrance. If you’re arriving via taxi, Uber, or Lyft, feel free to unload in one of Asheville’s dedicated loading zones, limited to 30 minutes (or less, as marked).
