Guest Reviews

Relaxing Vacation by Patricia K. 04/15/2021
The Bittersweet property was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy our time with our family! The home was very clean and we enjoyed the entire house, indoors & outdoor!!
outdoor oasis by Hank W. 04/05/2021
This house is just as beautiful and well-maintained as the photos suggest. Bedrooms have large comfortable beds, linens are high quality, and the home itself is immaculate. The highlight, though, is the back yard, where we spent most of our time. Four elevated heaters and a wood burning fireplace kept us warm on chilly April nights. The sight and sound of the waterfall, coupled with the blooming trees and bushes, created a wonderful, private outdoor oasis. Highly recommend.
Everything was perfect! 03/26/2021
This is an incredible property. Everything was so well thought out in the design of the space and the amenities the owners include. Candy and games for the kids, good mix of private and social spaces, everything needed to start a fire in the fire pit, etc etc. If I had to nitpick, I wish there was some flexibility to adjust the TV's to allow for streaming or external devices, and also we had no cell service for our stay (which I didn't mind at all). Look forward to coming back!
perfect for family reunion by Maureen B. 03/22/2021
Property was adorably decorated and the kitchen was well stocked with great equipment and anything you need for big meals or entertaining your group at home. The four bedrooms are nicely appointed and everyone felt they had privacy. The highlight though is the outdoor pavillion. It made the trip. We hung out there the entire time. The managers were responsive. Would come back in a heartbeat.
The perfect mountain getaway by Carrie B. 03/15/2021
I want to live here permanently! My friends and I chose this house for a quick, girl’s weekend. It was beyond amazing! The house is perfectly decorated with tons of great areas to lounge and enjoy each other’s company. The beds are so comfy! We will definitely be back! Also, it’s very convenient to downtown Asheville if you want to go brewery hopping or out to dinner!
Very nice home and very convenient to everything in Asheville. Had a great time! by Deryel C. 02/11/2021
The owners have put a lot of thought into making this home comfortable both indoors and outdoors. Lots of room for a large family to relax and enjoy. We were surprised to find so many items not usually found for the convenience of those staying away from home. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to 22 Bittersweet Lane!
Just beautiful. by Judy W. 01/21/2021
Bittersweet home rental in Asheville NC was a true treasure to find. The home far exceeded my expectations. Every room was uniquely and beautifully decorated. Just breath taking. A Christmas tree and decorations were added for the holidays. The bedding and linen were top quality, rendering a wonderful night sleep. Snacks, coffee and tea supplies were provided which was a welcoming touch after a long drive. Each living space had a large TV as well as the outdoor, covered area.The backyard also included a semi-inclosed dining table.. Just beautiful. I have never stayed in such a lovely home. I would highly recommend Bittersweet and my family looks forward to returning.
Beautiful Asheville Area Home by Ernie H. 01/21/2021
Extremely easy process. Property managers are professional, accessible, responsive. I highly recommend this property and the management team. We will not consider any other property when visiting the Asheville area again. Bittersweet will exceed your expectations.
Relaxing New Year’s Stay by Kim M. 01/05/2021
This property is as advertised-pics do not do it justice. We came to relax and visit Biltmore at Christmas and it suited our needs perfectly. We ate out several nights but cooked in the well equipped kitchen a few times as well. We would stay here again in a heartbeat-bonus was that they had it decorated for Christmas and that added to our experience as well. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!
Wonderful! by Janet B. 12/13/2020
Bittersweet Lane is perfect. The home is beautiful and has everything we needed. It was a lovely, relaxing stay.
Peaceful perfection by Michael P. 10/07/2020
Everything we needed was at the property- and more. The pictures don’t do it justice - you have to be here ! We lived in the outside space - fireplace, TV, dining, waterfall - and it was fabulous. Having 4 en suite bathrooms was amazing and so appreciated by all guests. Would come again and use Bittersweet in a heart beat !!
Family Weekend by Betsy W. 10/05/2020
What an amazing house!! Our favorite part was the outdoor pavilion. We spent all of our time there. Will definitely return to Bittersweet
Perfect House and Outdoor Living Space just outside of Asheville by Michael R. 09/29/2020
This house was perfect for a couples trip as all bedrooms have King Beds and very well done private baths. The house was decorated beautifully and perfectly functional. The kitchen and baths were stocked with all the necessities to make this rental house feel like home.
Perfect girls trip getaway by Tammy B. 09/14/2020
We had such an incredible stay at Bittersweet. The home was exactly as advertised. Picture perfect inside and out. We loved the outdoor living space and spent most of our time there, dining under the stars and enjoying the fireplace and covered pavilion, even in the rain. Each bedroom was beautifully appointed and incredible comfortable. Every detail of the house was perfect. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful home for a future girls weekend.
Wonderful time! by Kelly W. 08/19/2020
The house was very well appointed and no more than 20 minutes to anywhere.
Perfect Mountain Getaway by Kevin R. 08/07/2020
What can I say - great location and amazing property. The hard scape and backyard area were perfect to hang out after long days of hiking. Amazing kitchen and bedrooms are each large king size comfortable beds with luxury bathrooms and showers. We hiked all day and came home to an awesome house. Loved cooking dinner every night and even grilling. Just follow food precautions in summer as it is the N.C. mountains and there are bear sightings. We will definitely rent this place again and do more exploring.
Will come back by James W. 07/28/2020
Beautiful place! So peaceful and gorgeous! Steps in the dark were a little problem. Loved it! Great job!!
Awesome by Beth T. 07/11/2020
Beautifully appointed home. King suites were the perfect scenario for my family (adult children and significant others )

Outdoors space was where we spent all of our time.. even had an uninvited (bear) visitor. Made the trip!!
Beautifully Decorated Home by Kathy B. 06/28/2020
Bittersweet was absolutely perfect for our visit to Asheville. Our group consisted of 3 couples. Each couple had a private bedroom and bathroom with plenty of room for a fourth couple. The house appears to be professionally decorated. It is absolutely lovely, and then there’s the outside. The backyard space is so unique and well designed. It is perfect for relaxing after a long day of hiking or sightseeing. I couldn’t recommend Bittersweet more.
A definite WOW factor! by Erin C. 02/11/2020
This home is unbelievable! They do not leave out any detail in any room. We went with 3 other couples and we were all so impressed. All 8 of us were extremely comfortable. It was wonderful that we all had our own bathrooms and king bed. We chose to do this instead of a hotel and we were so happy we did! It was easy to get an Uber and it was a close drive into downtown. We will 100% come back! Thank you to the owners and their management team for a great weekend away!
Bittersweet by Jennifer M. 01/02/2020
What a beautiful vacation home. It was absolutely perfect for our family; equipped with everything you need, cozy and decorated fantastically.
Fun family Thanksgiving by Mary N. 12/01/2019
Fantastic home for a family vacation. Really nice modern bathrooms en-suite and hidden TVs in every room. We loved the house and especially the outdoor sitting area with waterfall, TV and fireplace for lounging together. Thank you Bittersweet for a fantastic family Thanksgiving we’ll remember fondly!
Fabulous Mountain Home by Mark S. 10/31/2019
Our family rented this house for 5 nights - our son was getting married downtown at The Foundry Hotel. It was a perfect arrangement for our family and much less expensive than staying downtown. The house and environs are amazing, the attention to detail is just the best I have ver seen at any rental property. The "pavilion" in the backyard is the focal point - we were out there every morning, starting a fire and having our morning coffee, and were out there most nights to wind down. I just wish we had more time to spend there - we definitely would want to rent this property gain in the future, not was a great value.
Peaceful location by Rafael U. 10/14/2019
Excellent property and peaceful location .Great time with old friends.
Couple's retreat by Julie G. 10/03/2019
We had a group of four couples for a long weekend. This home was delightfully appointed with four master sweets, a well-appointed kitchen, fantastic outdoor space and numerous thoughtful touches. We had a terrific time and no disappointments.
Fabulous family wedding retreat! by Fred S. 09/26/2019
We stayed here 5 wonderful nights while in town for sons wedding.
Enjoyed evenings on covered porch with a fire and the waterfall. We wanted to just move in. Will not disappoint.
Perfect Stay by Jen S. 08/30/2019
Everything was beautiful. The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything is perfectly decorated and cozy. We loved the little details like jars full of candy and snacks. The outside area was our favorite. We could have hung out there forever! We loved it and will definitely book it again.
Great house by Tim P. 08/25/2019
Beautiful, comfortable and convienient
Thoughtful details by Ellen M. 08/06/2019
Amazing outdoor space. Would strongly recommend primarily for adult groups. I would be a little nervous to have small children in the house as the decor is nice with a lot of detail.
Asheville Delight! by William M. 07/03/2019
Great house for multiple couples with an outside entertainment area for all to enjoy.
This home is amazing, perfect for adult groups. by Cliff O. 06/11/2019
This proved to be ideal for our group of 8 adults near 70 reuniting in some cases after 35 years. The outdoor setting with the stone fireplace was perfect for us to spend hours talking. We all remarked how true the house was to the pictures. We highly recommend this home for anyone seeking a first rate place to retreat.
40th Birthday weekend by Danielle W. 05/02/2019
We had four couples gathering from all over to celebrate a 40th birthday. At first we were a little reluctant to stay at this location because of all the rules/fees but decided to give it a try. I now understand why they are selective on who they allow to rent because the house was absolutely stunning! The decor was nicer than my own home filled with beautiful antiques and high end furnishings. They even had complimentary snacks waiting for us which was a nice surprise. All 4 bedrooms were equally spacious, comfortable and beautiful so everyone felt they were getting the “nicest room”. The outdoor area was just as pictured and we spent many nights drinking a glass of wine in front of the fire while listening to the relaxing waterfall. We all left wanting to buy a mountain house of our own. We were only 15-20 mins from downtown Asheville. My only suggestion would be for the owners to stock a few board games. I really hope we can come stay again soon. Thank you for a wonderful and very memorable stay.
EXTRAORDINARY! by Pamela M. 04/18/2019
We had such a wonderful experience visiting Asheville, NC. It's a beautiful city with so many fun activities. What made our trip worthwhile was having the opportunity to stay at Bittersweet! Such an amazing house with four King bedrooms. Having four couples in attendance, it wasn't easy picking a bedroom, since we liked them all! The outdoor space with the waterfall and fireplace was just perfect for morning mediations with a cup of coffee and evening bonding. We loved having plush towels and robes, but especially liked the makeup washcloths. There was plenty of room to give us each quiet time and just enough to enjoy playing games and dancing to some sweet music together! Every detail was taken into consideration to make our stay enjoyable at Bittersweet.
Amazing well-appointed home perfect for a Getaway! by Mary Lou B. 04/02/2019
We were so impressed with this home in every way possible - friendly helpful owners, immaculately clean, with every detail for a welcoming stay - from the candy jar to the outdoor living area complete with fireplace and waterfall! All around perfect for a very memorable family and friends gathering place.
Perfect for our stay! by Brittany B. 12/11/2018
Bittersweet is, simply put, beautiful. No detail has been left out - from simple things like the Neutrogena Rain Bath shower gel, to Kind bars and candy, all the way to the fancy smart refrigerator and curved tv. They really made a point of making this “home away from home,” something special. We were a group of 8, and this home was such a romantic setting for our couples weekend. It is about 15 minutes from downtown, which was perfect for us. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
A Fantastic Friend's Getaway by Cindy D. 11/15/2018
This house is a sanctuary! Perfect for reunions, friend gatherings, family retreats. Beautifully curated in design, a fantastic layout for multiple couples (there were 8 of us, altogether), and the outdoor space was our constant go-to. We picked up a karaoke machine and had a blast in the lower level, made potluck meals all gathered in the kitchen, had an impromptu morning workout in the huge garage, and took morning walks and runs through the nearby wooded trails. Plus, trips into Asheville, Grove Park Inn for dinner, and a gorgeous hike to the falls. Exactly what we hoped it would be! We'll be back.
Perfect for sophisticated travelers by Constance P. 11/02/2018
Sublime home with every amenity
Breathtaking beauty, luxurious inside and out! by Ann S. 10/22/2018
This is one of the most beautifully decorated and luxuriously designed rentals we have ever seen. The outdoor space was our favorite and we spent hours and hours around the massive waterfall and crackling fire having meals, great conversations and playing games. The bedroom suites were beautiful and our beds and mattresses were incredible...being only a few minutes away from surrounding area of Asheville in the privacy of wooded home was a dream come true. We visited Biltmore and The Cove, but all we wanted to do was rest and enjoy all the amenities at Bittersweet! This is our #1 pic for North Carolina Vacations!
Beautiful home and outdoor areas by Tom C. 10/15/2018
Bittersweet is a wonderful home. It is spacious yet cozy at the same time. There is nothing that this home is lacking. Would definitely return here again.
Fabulous! by Libbi S. 09/20/2018
Beautiful home in a perfect location with plenty of personal amenities for guests. may have a special visitor! Mr. or Mrs. Bear joined us for cocktails on our last evening and again at breakfast before we left!
The perfect family gathering place♥️. by Ellen N. 09/16/2018
We sooo enjoyed the outdoor area (along with a bear in the waterfall one evening
Lovely house for our family visit to Asheville by Paul B. 08/26/2018
My siblings and their spouses really enjoyed the relaxed setting and comfortable bedrooms and living areas. We especially enjoyed the outdoor sitting area. The house was convenient for everything we needed- access to Asheville, the parkway, groceries and supplies and the very nice trail system around Warren Wilson College. The staff at AVL was extremely helpful and answered all our inquiries immediately.
Amazing home in Asheville! by Eliese B. 05/04/2018
Where do I begin...Bittersweet is such an amazing home. The owners have decorated it so beautifully. The pictures don’t event so this place justice. It is a true escape from everyday life. The attention to detail is so clear all throughout the home. It was spotless and they provided everything you would need during your stay. Things were labeled and clearly explained. The water feature in the backyard was so soothing and relaxing. Excellent home where we felt so safe. Our group of four ladies had a fabulous time. The management company was so responsive and very customer-friendly. In a heartbeat I would rent this property again. Top-notch, luxurious experience.
Beautiful home & outdoor space by Wendy A. 10/19/2017
This home is gorgeous with beautiful bathrooms, comfy king beds, gormet kitchen with everything we needed. The outdoor covered space with the TV and fireplace were perfect for our 4 couples to lounge and enjoy the sound of the waterfall. Close to grocery, and about 15 minutes to downtown Asheville. One of the finest properties we have ever rented. The property manager was very friendly and saw to it that all was perfect for our stay. Luxurious linens and towels! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Perfect "Big Chill Getaway" by Mimi S. 10/17/2017
Bittersweet is the ideal reunion destination. There were eight adults in our group and with four King Masters we had our own private space and lots of communal space. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of space to prepare our meals. The customer service was spot on. I would highly recommend Bittersweet.
Extremely enjoyable! by Hickory, NC 10/11/2017
Bittersweet is a treasure! The owners have gone all out to provide every comfort of home. The decor is beautiful, the kitchen is very well-supplied, the linens are awesome, everything is very clean. The outdoor space, though, is definitely the best feature of the property. The outdoor fireplace, TV, waterfall, fire pit, comfy furniture is truly a place to relax. Even though we had a bit of rain, we were dry and very happy under the huge pavilion. The location is close enough to dowtown or Biltmore areas if you wish to. We had 6 adults and 2 children -- plenty of space! We would definitely recommend this getaway!
Family wedding by Mary M. 10/06/2017
Staying at Bittersweet will provide lasting memories for your family! We were in town to celebrate my niece's wedding at Lake Eden. This home was a great location for that venue as well as downtown Asheville. During our down time our favorite place to congregate was the backyard oasis. The weather was perfect & the surroundings were amazing. Absolutely one of the best places we've ever stayed! Cannot wait to return.
September Bittersweet Stay by Mary P. 09/25/2017
Our extended family stayed in this lovely home for a long weekend to attend a destination family wedding. This home was just beautiful, very clean and had tons of amenities. There were 8 people staying here and there was more than enough room to accommodate us, the outside space was so peaceful. I enjoyed my morning coffee there every day, and we gathered there whenever there was free time. I would love to return someday!!
Beautiful luxurious mountain retreat by George G. 09/19/2017
I wish we could have stayed here all week. A beautifully maintained and appointed private home minutes from Asheville. Very tastefully decorated with lots of areas for getting together, including a great outdoor space with your own babbling brook. I highly recommend this property.
Will the Bittersweet be your next vacation destination?
