Loft 101 is literally right on Church Street and is a short walk from Biltmore Avenue, which means you’re surrounded by amazing places to eat, drink, and shop while in Asheville.

While staying at Loft 101, our wifi wasn’t working and we couldn’t find many of the suggested networks on our devices. All I had to do was contact someone from Yonder and they got us the info we needed, and fast. It made me feel like I could depend on the folks from Yonder for anything, even though it was something small like wi-fi. Wait, we need wifi, right?

Bonus Help: Our kind helper from Yonder also gave us a nice recommendation for some Vortex Doughnuts, so double win! 

The Welcome Book

After you book Loft 101 with Yonder, you’ll receive their Welcome Book. It’s very thorough and covers everything you’ll need to know, from check-in instructions to things to do in Asheville and lots in between. They were also spot on about the parking in Asheville, which can prove challenging.


From the moment we arrived and put our bags down, I knew this 2-bedroom loft was a good place.

Feels Like Home

Traveling with a baby means needing a place where we and—more importantly—our daughter will feel comfy throughout the days and, especially, nights. There was plenty of room inside for us to enjoy Loft 101. The beds were nice and comfy and there was enough space for us to put our little one’s pack n’ play in one of them. The original hardwood floors and exposed brick walls throughout were a nice touch, too.

Beyond Modern Amenities

For those of us who need to get some work done during nap time, this place is especially wonderful. There’s even a huge TV in the living room, as well as a nice one in the bedroom. If you are hanging out and just want to listen to music, there’s a dock for your iPhone or MP3 player. Thanks to all this and the wi-fi, we were able to knock stuff out and even pull off a successful #FunTravelChat on Twitter during kiddo’s nap time.

Full Kitchen

I really enjoyed the kitchen, for its granite countertop-covered island in front of the huge fridge. I’m normally a cold brew or pour-over person, so their coffeemaker with hot water dispenser was a nice change. The latter was a bonus for those times when I wanted tea over coffee. Don’t judge!

Great for a Night In

Thanks to the big refrigerator, I was able to learn about some of Asheville’s takeout options. Double thanks to being in our awesome location, I could walk about five minutes down Patton Avenue and order takeout from The Noodle Shop and then walk down to Wicked Weed and grab some beers for our night in. Loft 101 provides a French table & chairs for relaxing on Church St.

Note: beware if you’re sitting outside because the nearby Foggy Mountain Brew Pub will suck you in with their delicious wings. Definitely go for spicy when ordering, if you’re willing.

Bonus Features

These are some extra features that offered by Yonder and Loft 101 that we think will appeal to more people beyond just us.

ADA Accessible

    The whole place looks amazing Carl but the kitchen looks awesome. This feels like a real home, which is huge for me wherever I decide to lay my head. If the place doesn’t feel homey and even a bit lived in, not good for me. This is why I love house sitting so much.
