Ellington Loft is on the top floor of the historic S and W Building, a beloved city landmark that was designed by renowned architect Douglas Ellington and constructed in 1928 at the height of Asheville's building boom. The building stands as one of Asheville's most treasured examples of Art Deco architecture, highlighted by its ornate facade with gilt-glazed terracotta tiles and arched windows. The Urban Trail and the Asheville Architecture and History Walk, popular self-guided walking tours of downtown, both include a stop at the Art Deco masterpiece, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. A major renovation of the building in 2012 included the construction of what is now known as Ellington Loft.

Perfect downtown location, clean and as advertised. Would definitely stay here again!
Our favorite part of this property was the outside deck area. Such a lovely time we shared out there. Morning coffee and evening cocktails! The proximity was within walking distance of everything downtown. We only moved our cars to go to the parkway. So many restaurants and shopping to enjoy so close.
Awesome condo with all the amenities! Walking distance to all downtown.
We enjoyed our stay at this quiet place in the mountains. It was close enough to all the activities and restaurants that are plentiful in the area. The bonus after a day of hiking and exploring the area was to relax in the hot tub on the porch with a glass of wine. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make us feel at home. The new blacktop drive made it easy to get to the cabin and the blacktop parking area was nice during some of the rain showers we encountered.
Great stay and an excellent location!
Loved the Ellington. Great space for a small girls' weekend. Awesome food hall downstairs which was convenient. The place was very clean, safe, and we felt right at home.
We had a wonderful time during our stay. The location was great, and the place was gorgeous and comfortable. Would definitely book again!
Great location, awesome balcony, clean, great layout. Really enjoyed being in the heart of Asheville near restaurants, bars, and Biltmore. Highly recommend!
Beautiful spot in the heart of downtown! We enjoyed this modern, loft-style unit, & all it had to offer! The balcony was a favorite gathering spot for morning coffee or evening drinks. The building itself (wine, ice cream, a brewery & food court) was an added bonus. If you’re looking for downtown - this is the one for you!
Awesome location, greatly stocked, and clean. Thank you!
House was great and clean.
Amazing Airbnb, the pictures don’t do it justice. The outside deck is really lovely and sunny and the place itself is great. It’s also above a food court-type place which is delicious! Would definitely recommend it.
Great spot with an awesome view. Perfect place if you want to do a lot in one day.
My stay with my family was great and there are plenty of things to do like shopping and hiking.
Central, downtown location. Really wonderful outdoor space and open shared spaces within the loft. Perfect for three colleagues on a work trip.
Loved this place, great porch and very convenient location to everything in downtown Asheville.
Very nice place, clean and well appointed. It has everything and has a nice outside area with good furniture. Safe area, very close to all of the action.
Super unique location. Unit is the center of everything in Asheville. The rooftop deck was also fantastic! A great unit and definitely recommended.
Perfect downtown location! Central to shops, brewpubs, and restaurants. We loved the small food market downstairs, very convenient way to grab a bite or quick beer. The space was comfortable and spacious with a gracious outdoor deck with a view of the mountains. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for an easy place to stay in Asheville.
The perfect spot for a girls' weekend.
There's not a better spot in Asheville! We were walking distance from everything downtown can offer. This is a lovely home offering all the amenities you would need to enjoy a few days away with the family.
Property was central to all downtown Asheville attractions on foot. We had a mother/daughter trip - party of 6. There was plenty of sleeping room, and the property had 3 full baths - which came in very handy for a party of six women getting ready for a day/night out on the town. The kitchen was clean and well appointed. Would highly recommend it!
Came here for a girls weekend -/perfect location in the center of Asheville! Loved the first floor food court with eclectic food options and the brewery in the building that had live music. The apartment was beautiful and spacious! The outdoor patio was so special with great views and a relaxing place to end our evening. Definitely recommend staying here!
Incredible location. Walking distance to all that downtown Asheville has to offer.
No complaints. Clean, spacious, and well located.
The rental process was seamless and the unit was very clean. You cannot beat this location if you want to be downtown. Although there is not a designated parking space, there is a nearby garage that is super convenient. I do wish we could have checked in a bit early but I do understand it is a large unit to clean. Great for families!
Beautiful loft condo in downtown Asheville. Property was spacious, very clean, nicely decorated & well stocked. Great convenience being within the S&W building and only a short walk to many restaurant options and shopping. Communication and instructions were great leading up to and throughout stay. Highly recommend this property!
All the items needed
The property is in a fabulous location within walking distance from all the best restaurants and breweries. We really enjoyed the outdoor patio space in between our touring around. The indoor space is well decorated but a little dark. Needs more lighting. I also suggest providing starter coffee for the first morning. Otherwise great spot.
Beautifully appointed 3 bedroom that is great for families and/or groups. Large outdoor patio space with seating and eating areas. Clean and positioned in the heart of Downtown Asheville. Right above a GREAT food court and surprisingly away from the noise. Perfectly combines luxury, space, convenience, and quiet privacy! A real gem
Perfect place for a visit to Asheville.
The condo was amazing and the location was awesome. Perfect for our group!
Beautiful condo..amenities and furnishings very upscale
Great location and had everything we needed!

"Beautifully decorated, comfortable for the 6 of us"
A beautiful condo in the heart of Asheville. The location was super convenient and the place is absolutely beautiful. Would definitely stay here again.
Enjoyed staying at the Loft. We liked being together as a family. Plenty of room for the kids to play.
"The property was very well appointed! Loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
"Main building was under construction but the space itself was great. It was very clean, spacious enough for 6 guests and also very quiet. The location is great with some restaurants right across the street. I would definitely recommend."
"The condo was great for our family of five. Construction work downstairs and next door, but nothing that impacted our stay. Rooftop deck was great for adults to escape kids when needed. Kitchen was enough for our makeshift thanksgiving dinner away from home."
"The property was exactly as advertised - a great downtown location with easy walking access to restaurants and shops. Too much reality in 2020! Great food, friends, drinks and beautiful stay! Fun weekend for 3 couples, we would definitely stay here again."
Thank you so much! We loved the loft - especially the deck - and the location was terrific.
"The property was great for a small gathering of parents, brothers and sister and spouses. Patio and great room were wonderful for hanging out and group meals. Breweries and shopping were just a few steps away. We had a great time at the NC Arboretum. We highly recommend this property and Carolina Mornings."
"The property was exactly as advertised. Beautiful loft and very clean. Check in/out process was super simple and the location was walking distance to most everything downtown Asheville. My favorite was the rooftop deck. Large, beautiful view of the mountains and great for hanging out with friends."
The apartment was awesome and we loved the outdoor patio! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness and furnishings - kitchen was well stocked.
We loved the deck! The mountain and city views from Ellington Loft are gorgeous! Private and quiet a great get away in the heart of Asheville. Highly recommend. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. Kitchen was well stocked.
Great location! We loved being able to walk out door and be right downtown. I'd recommend it to anyone not want to leave the downtown area.
Easy peasy - here are some experienced folks. Every thing was where you'd expect to find it. Clean and supremely well located.
I would recommend Carolina Mornings to others!
"House could not have been in a better location and was perfect for our two families. Rooms were great, living room was perfect for hanging out and the house had everything we needed - just fantastic!"
Great place in a great location! Loved it and will rent it again!
Can't beat location. Never got in a car.
Completely automated. Never spoke with or had to see another person.
"Excellent location and property just as described! Three couples enjoyed the rooms and outside porch overlooking part of downtown. Several security codes to jot down, but owner's instructions covered it all. Great spot and well done!"
"Excellent location, spacious property, treadmill, makeup mirror, robes, slippers, pluses you don't normally see in a rental. Loved the outdoor space."
Wonderful property with all the amenities and a great location.
The condo and property management team were outstanding. The location is incredible and walking distance to all shops and restaurants. We'll definitely stay here again.
Property was perfect and in a wonderful location. Ideally suited for 3 couples. Surrounded by wonderful dining options and perfect spot to relax in the outdoor rooftop patio. Would recommend to anyone.
"Great location in heart of Asheville. Fun, older building, great accommodation. Felt like home at the end of our adventurous days"
"This property was perfect. We had two families staying for the weekend and the location was perfect. The lack of parking was a little annoying, but we were told plenty of times about it and there is a garage right around the block. Would have given it all 5 stars except that the property had not been cleaned upon arrival. Once notified, they remedied this while we were at dinner. Will definitely stay there again."
Exactly as described. Great location.
It felt like a home away from home. So comfortable and clean. The linens and towels were plentiful and beautiful. The furnishings were comfortable. We can't wait to comeback. Thank you for a wonderful family vacation place
Everyone enjoyed themselves. Condo was the perfect location to walk and enjoy all that Asheville has to offer! Condo was very clean and exactly as advertised.
"This was an excellent base to explore Asheville on foot, as well as to get to awesome restaurants. We were 3 couples and loved everything about the loft - from the very complete stocking of the kitchen and baths (even travel size shampoo and conditioner provided!), to plenty of space to gather and visit, to loving the outdoor terrace. Three bedrooms with 2 kings and 1 queen bed and 3 full baths, and even 2 additional daybeds in a small loft area. Everything was sparkling clean and there were tons of pillows and towels. Only downside is having to park in a nearby garage, but you're right in the heart of downtown Asheville after all. Loved our stay and would highly recommend!"
"Great property. A little ""Fort Knoxie"" to get in but understandable since it is smack downtown. Lots to do in the ""triangle"". Every restaurant we went to was fantastic, from tacos to Irish, to 1930 Preservation style cocktails. I would highly recommend this property. "
"Great downtown location. Can walk to great restaurants and shopping. Parking is only negative, but very affordable overnight parking a block away. Great for 3 couples."
The loft was fantastic. Location second to none. Easy to find great restaurants all around. The decor was great inside and happy to see a Keurig coffee maker (we're a bit spoiled there). Plenty of space inside for our crew of five to spread out. Nice and quiet despite being near the center of the action.
The Ellington Loft lives up to its billing. Our family of four stayed for the weekend and had a great time. We really enjoy the comfortable indoor and outdoor space and that we were so close to all the action in Asheville when we stepped out the front door of the condo. We hope to return.
perfect location right in the center of all the action. really nice space with plenty of living space. awesome roof deck--great view.
Great property in Downtown Asheville!!
The Ellington Loft was perfect for our group. The building is lovely and will be even better when the restaurant on the first floor is open.
"Property is beautiful, your company stayed in touch and made me feel I was in goods hands and everything that you said was accurate."
We loved the Ellington Loft. We had a great time!
"The condo was great, one of the nicest places I have ever rented."
The property was very clean and all amenities as advertised. The app was excellent and having codes instead of keys was great. Kat was very helpful during the booking process and was terrific all around. I am very happy with CM. We had an excellent stay and the property was wonderful!
"We had a wonderful experience with Carolina Mornings! We really enjoyed going to the Biltmore House which was part of the Discovery pass! Ellington loft was beautiful and very clean! We appreciate that the loft provided everything that we needed, which made our stay relaxing. It was a very enjoyable trip!"
"Absolutely loved Ellington Loft! We stayed here with 2 adults and 4 kinds on our first visit to Asheville. These accommodations were perfect! Great location, beautiful decor, breathtaking outdoor living area and comfortable bed. We hope to be back in the fall or next summer at the latest! "
The condo is beautiful and we enjoyed our stay. It was amazingly clean. I did not expect the soap and shampoo. The condo had everything we needed. I would recommend the condo again and if I ever go back to Asheville I will definitely be calling Carolina Mornings! The staff were very helpful and everything from the initial contact to the many email updates were professional. We all loved the email updates as they helped build anticipation! Thank you to all for such a beautiful space and for your friendly service! Please give the cleaning crew my thank you too!
We had 8 guests. The place was perfect.
"We chose this spot to hold our 8th annual Whoo Fest, which is a gathering of friends. You have a gorgeous spot."
"Five friends from youth, we enjoyed our few days here in Asheville. The loft was perfect for us. "

We loved this property!
"Lovely loft, very comfortable, very easy to get around downtown Asheville!"
"Ellington Loft is an amazing property! It is centrally located and walking everywhere was a breeze. There are several restaurants, shops and breweries on the same block, we were all very pleased and the porch looking over the mountains had plenty of room to enjoy breakfast and relax and the view was spectacular. I would absolutely recommend this loft and we will be back! Thanks again! "
"This loft is absolutely gorgeous! It is full of exceptional amenities & is in the perfect location. Tons of great restaurants, bars, shopping & live entertainment close by. I wish we could stay longer! Thanks for a great stay!"
"Ellington Loft is a beautifully furnished and comfortable condo in the heart of Asheville. The amenities provided rival any of the high end hotels in the area. We walked out the door of the building, the old S&W Cafeteria building, and enjoyed the restaurants and shopping and all that is unique about Asheville. The balcony of the condo is large, has a lovely seating area of 2 sofas and 2 chairs and a dining table that seats 4; but the best part of the balcony is the long range view of the mountains. The condo easily sleeps 8 and the bed mattresses are so comfortable that all of us had great sleep. The Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking in the mountains are just minutes away. We will stay again at Ellington Loft when we return to Asheville. It felt like a home away from home."
Ellington property was terrific. Recommendation for dinner from the representative was terrific. Thanks for your help!
