"Wonderful"

by Tracey B.

04/25/2022

Beautiful property. Well maintained. Up to date. Everything you need. Outside fire and tv area awesome. Updated bathrooms and king bedrooms. Great for couples retreat.

"Asheville Experience"

by Frederick O

04/20/2022

The home was beautiful and appointed as described. Directions to the property were easy and accurate. Access was easy, as described. The home was wonderfully furnished, the kitchen was fully equipped, and each bedroom had a lovely en suite bathroom. The outdoor space was stunning, and a lot of our "downtime" was spent sitting and talking by the fireplace.

"One of the best vacation rentals!"

by Christy W.

04/11/2022

We have stayed at many vacation rentals and we tend to have high expectations. This home exceeded them all! It felt like a HOME, not a rental. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. All of the extras, from coffee to snacks, soap to bedside water bottles, the little details and extras made such a big difference. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a clean, spacious, exceptional stay in Asheville!

"Bittersweet Stay"

by Sherri S.

02/28/2022

What a beautiful home! My friends and I had such an amazing time. We absolutely loved the downstairs room. We will definitely be coming back!!!

"Great stay"

by Sam G.

Perfect for a gathering of old friends.

"Luxury home with awesome amenities"

by Taylor W.

01/17/2022

We had 4 couples stay for a long weekend. This home had everything you could think of and more! Several couples made comments that it was very similar to a boutique hotel due to the amount of thought and detail. We had a wonderful weekend in the snow and made great use of the outdoor areas! Communication with the owners and property management was fantastic and answered all of our questions promptly.

"Absolutely amazing and stunning home and property!!"

by Julie C.

01/12/2022

We were looking for a place to experience an unforgettable, special Christmas with our family and this property provided that!! Highly recommend!!! Thank you!!!

"New Year’s Friends"

by Craig L.

01/05/2022

Property was excellent. Very clean and spacious enough for four couples. We were close enough to Asheville to enjoy the sites, and had hiking trails adjacent to the property.

"Worth every penny!"

by Robin R.

12/12/2021

I have never stayed in a property that exceeded my every expectation! The owners and property managers have thought about your every need when staging this home. The house comes with the basics so you don't have to worry about packing the essentials. The details, like chargers and waters by each bed were so surprising and appreciated! The home and neighborhood are beautiful! We were blessed with a beautiful December long weekend and were so happy to be able to enjoy the amazing outdoor patio and dining areas. They made the check in and out processes so easy! We also had no problem getting Uber rides to and from Asheville to avoid parking stress. I can't say enough good things about this property and our experience! We would book this property again in a heartbeat. Next time in the spring when we can experience the waterfall!

"Loved the waterfall"

by Danette M.

12/12/2021

Property was beautiful. Especially outside where you could listen to the waterfall and build a fire.

"Annual Family Trip"

by Kate P.

11/18/2021

This house was absolutely AMAZING! The interior was well decorated and gorgeous. We enjoyed the outside fireplace and comfort of it all! The rooms were perfect for our family trip with all adults, each couple having their own room and full bathroom. The location was great too- 20 minutes or less to everywhere. Did not want to leave! Thank you for everything!

"Weekend Away for My Sister"

by Amanda B.

11/15/2021

I hosted a weekend for my sister and her bridesmaids as a “bachelorette weekend!” We knew that beautiful Asheville was the perfect place to get away for rest and relaxation…we were excited about staying at Bittersweet, but we had no idea how awesome this house would be and how it added to the enjoyment of our weekend exponentially. First, the attention to detail and beautiful decor made us all feel like princesses! The bathrooms were so luxurious that getting ready was a treat! The rain showers were amazing! The beds were so comfortable, everyone commented daily about how well they slept. We started each morning in the bathrobes provided (super comfy and warm) with a nice cup of coffee in the amazing outdoor area…not too cold because of the heaters! After touring Biltmore, spending the morning at the spa, and enjoying a few meals in amazing restaurants, we were excited to return to Bittersweet and just enjoy each others’ company in this beautiful home. Plenty of areas to sit together comfortably, both inside and outside. Well stocked kitchen for the meals that we did cook ourselves. Honestly, no complaints! Never before have I been able to say that there was literally nothing that would have made this house better. We will be back!

"Awsome Get away"

by David H.

11/02/2021

Everything about the house was absolutely amazing. The outdoor area was beautiful and relaxing. We spent most of our time in front of the outdoor fireplace. House is immaculate, beds are extremely comfortable. We will be back.

"Bittersweet Bliss"

by Susan C.

10/22/2021

The house was pure bliss and joy inside and out. Every space inside was fabulously decorated and cozy. The back porch space was better than imagined. We enjoyed a brunch on Saturday in the dining space outside and retreated every evening to the fireplace space. I would definitely rent this property again. More than enough room for my group of 8.

"Couples Asheville trip"

by Jennifer M

10/17/2021

Fantastic property! All the details were thought of. Incredibly homey & comfortable. The outside area was amazing! And every couple had their own space. Especially enjoyed watching the neighborhood bears

"Gorgeous Outdoor Space"

by Elaine C.

09/15/2021

Four couples got together for a reunion which was postponed from September 2020. We chose this house because of the 4 private master suites and the outdoor spaces. We were not disappointed. The house is obviously loved by its owners, well appointed and very comfortable. Every morning, we reflected on the comfortable beds and great nights sleep we all had. We wanted to get together and be safe and this house was perfect. There was a delightful, covered dining area close by a fabulous another covered area with comfortable chairs, over head heating, wood burning fireplace, and large TV. A very attractive waterfall fountain is a few feet away. It helped that the weather was seasonal for the mountains of NC-warm and sunny. Be aware there are bears in the vicinity but who needs to go far from this lovely home. We're thinking of another opportunity to visit!

"Incredible!"

by Greg V.

09/11/2021

The property is just as we imagined in fact better than expected. Wonderful outdoor space to enjoy and the beds were so comfy. Everything was perfect and we hope to be back soon.

"Wonderful getaway"

by Dennis G.

08/13/2021

This was an extended weekend getaway with friends. The property was as good as advertised. The house was clean and well stocked with all the necessities. Bedroom setup was ideal with each having its own en-suite bathroom. The outdoor space was well thought out and provided ample areas for relaxation between the covered patio, outdoor dining space and fireplace and pit. Definitely would recommend this property to those looking for a carefree break in the Asheville area.

"Perfect getaway for our family ~"

by Deandra B.

07/09/2021

We stayed with our three adult sons and their wives. Perfectly arranged so that everyone had plenty of private and public space to enjoy. The outdoor area with waterfall was relaxing and peaceful - even in July we had a cool enough evening to enjoy a fire in the outdoor fireplace. We had a lovely stay, and are already planning a trip back to this incredible house!

"Just like the VRBO pics"

by Heidi S.

06/30/2021

We had a mini family celebration - 4 couples- and stayed at Bittersweet for four nights. The accommodations are wonderful. Many little extras like a "candy" bar and "snack" bar. The outside firepit, pavilion and waterfall were spectacular We spent every evening hanging out after dinner. We all also enjoyed breakfast outside each morning. The bedrooms were perfect for each couple. Regulating the upstairs temperature was a bit of a challenge. When it was cool up stairs it was pretty chilly downstairs! We were fortunate to see a mama bear and her 3 cubs twice during our stay. Our only hitch was trying to get a uber, lyft or taxi into town for dinner. They kept cancelling on us. We finally booked a limo service which worked great. We highly recommend GRANDY CO. Overall we had an exceptional experience.

"Amazing spot!"

by Caitlin C.

06/19/2021

We had a great time at the Bittersweet and the house did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

"Relaxing Vacation"

by Patricia K.

04/18/2021

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!!

"perfect for family reunion"

by Maureen B.

04/14/2021

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.

"outdoor oasis"

by Hank W.

04/12/2021

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!"

by Amir M.

04/09/2021

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!

"The perfect mountain getaway"

by Carrie B.

03/16/2021

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 Deryal C.

02/17/2021

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 Bittersweet!

"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"

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"

Sublime home with every amenity

"Breathtaking beauty, luxurious inside and out!"

by Ann S.

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!

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.

Beautiful home in a perfect location with plenty of personal amenities for guests. Plus...you may have a special visitor! Mr. or Mrs. Bear joined us for cocktails on our last evening and again at breakfast before we left!

"Lovely house for our family visit to Asheville"

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.

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.

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""

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.

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"

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.

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!!

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.
