The West Nest

Starting At $80 - $255 /- Night


The " West Nest" is on Haywood Road in the heart of popular West Asheville, walkable/bikeable to restaurants, clubs, music, the River Arts District, breweries and downtown Asheville. Our place is newly renovated and professionally furnished by Village Antiques. The West Nest is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. See below from more information on our accommodation and for things to do in West Asheville. The owners are local business owners and are glad to help our guests.

Our apartment is bright, remodeled and is professionally designed and decorated with antiques from Village Antiques in mid-century modern and Japanese styles. We paid extra special attention to our bed, since we personally really value staying in places with comfortable mattresses. We hope that you enjoy it on our patio with city and mountain views.

You will be able to access the entire apartment, with the exception of the owners closet. There is a lock box on the door for access, but you can always call the owners if you need face time.

The owners of the West Nest are West Asheville residents and owners of a local real estate company ( Mosaic Realty) and also an antique store ( Village Antiques). We are happy to help in any way that our guests need, from recommendations on places to eat and things to do, to help with navigating town.

If you want to explore West Asheville, there's a great website On Haywood dot com (spelled out because Airbnb removed the link). This website has links and info on West Asheville restaurants, shops, music venues, clubs and businesses. Haywood Rd is the main street in West Asheville. Our Airbnb is on Haywood Rd, on the east side, between the River Arts District and central West Asheville. Some people call it " East West Asheville" because it is the east side of west Asheville.

Some of my favorite places on Haywood Road are (in no particular order):

I hope this helps, but feel free to let me know if you have questions.

The West Nest is conveniently located and is bikeable to downtown Asheville, walkable to the River Arts District, and of course, it is walkable to everything in West Asheville. Our apartment is on the bus line, so if you want to get around without a car, you've found the right spot!

We are in the center of West Asheville. We think our space is perfect for those who want an urban experience, but not for those travelers looking for a quiet getaway. There is a lumber yard next door (not active at night) and traffic on Haywood Road. It is not loud in the apartment, and not different than any city apartment, but it is not the silent mountain retreat either, so we hope that our guests are looking for a place where they are in the heart of it all.
