Perfect for two couples. Ideal downtown location.

The Southern Gem was a perfect spot for our recent couples' getaway. Two king size bedrooms, so no awkwardness about who gets the master. It is ideally located downtown, so we were able to walk out to restaurants, bars, brewery tours and weekend markets. It is beautifully decorated and has cool exposed brick and a large deck. The only thing I would change would be to lower the deck wall since you can't actually see over it. We're guessing it was left in place due to historic building codes. Again, it was beautifully appointed except for one very worn, pilled blanket in the downstairs bedroom. It was completely inconsistent with the quality of the rest of the furnishings. Otherwise, would absolutely recommend and will stay there again.

Perfect place for a perfect weekend

We loved the Southern Gem - it was the perfect place for a girls weekend in Asheville. Just a short walk from anything we wanted to do in downtown. The property management provided great instructions for arrival, entry and parking (what a blessing to have parking provided!), and they stayed in touch throughout the weekend to make sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back!

Gem among Gems

Great place with numerous amenities. Highly recommend. Only negative is that the pull out sofa bed is not very comfortable. The other two beds are big and comfortable. Within walking distance of everything in Asheville.
