"Top Notch House in a Great Location"

by Shayne L.


From check-in to check-out this was one of the best experiences I have had in a rental property. The owners were very helpful when needed and the pictures of the house do not do it justice! I highly recommend!

"Great Get Away"

by Michael P.


The house met all of our needs. Pictures don’t do the house justice. Outside living space is amazing. Would recommend this house to anyone.


by Donna S.


There were 7 adults. We loved everything about this beautifully appointed home. I have stayed at many VRBOs and this one blew us away. Plenty of space to relax and enjoy each room. We will definitely be coming back.


by Brittany M.


The house was gorgeous. The beds were so comfortable. The backyard was perfect. I couldn't have wanted more in a rental to enjoy Asheville! We will definitely be back!


by Robert K.


Beautiful, great beds, great linens, very responsive host, overall wonderful.

"Gorgeous oasis"

by Elise G.


Bittersweet is a gorgeous oasis of comfort, welcome, and tranquility, nestled in a lovely natural setting that is, nonetheless, luxurious and sublime. Every need has been meticulously thought of and designed into this beautiful home, with its epicenter (for my family) balanced between the outdoor living area and the large, inviting kitchen and dining area. The naturally designed water feature provides a constant, soothing background and lures a variety of birds and butterflies, as do the beautiful trees and landscape, which were blooming while we were there. The king beds were pure bliss and we all slept wonderfully well the entirety of our weeklong stay. And oh, the showers! The home, furnishings, and decor have been meticulously planned and cared for and is meticulously clean and in perfect condition. It is obvious that this is a beloved and well cared for home. We absolutely recommend Bittersweet as an oasis of comfort, luxury, and beauty, and would love to return.

"Beautiful and well appointed home"

by Shan B.


We traveled here with our toddler and another family with a toddler and infant. The adults and kids all enjoyed themselves. The house is charming, very clean and has an extraordinary outdoor space where the adults enjoyed relaxing and the kids had a great time exploring. It is a 15-20 min drive to nice restaurants and activities. We would absolutely recommend it to other travelers.

"Great and relaxing time!"

by Ellanor P.


Had a fun time with friends! Can’t wait to go back! See you soon!

"Excellent location for a stay in Asheville"

by Harvey G.


This house is in a very nice, quiet and secluded neighborhood. It had all the amenities you could ask for. We had a number of places we needed to get to in Asheville and Bittersweet was perfectly located so that we were within 15-20 minutes of any location in Asheville. The owners have a lot of pride in their house and it shows. if we have need to stay in Asheville again, we would certainly be pleased to go back to Bittersweet. .

"Awesome experience"

by Kirk B.


This vrbo more than met our expectations! I would highly recommend. It’s 15 minutes to downtown Asheville, walking distance to hiking trails and the house is well laid out and has an incredible outdoor space.


by Angela A.


This was the perfect place for 4 couples to stay. Beautifully decorated with impeccable attention to detail.


by Fran S.


Cozy home with all the amenities required. Look forward to another stay with good friends.

"Relaxing but Close to The Action"

by Charels M.


The property was the perfect location to relax after returning from a day of seeing The Biltmore and Asheville. We especially loved the den because it's size and seating options allowed us to visit as a group. This is a luxury property that is worth renting. Our one regret is that the rainy weather did not give us the opportunity to use the beautiful outdoor living areas.

"Amazing visit"

by Margie S.


We loved our stay. The house is absolutely gorgeous and was the perfect set up for a group. Shared spaces to enjoy each other's company, with the ability to split off for down time if needed. The outdoor space was lovely and the weather cooperated for some outdoor TV and fire pit time. As an added bonus there were hiking trails just across the street from the house. The house was impeccable and had everything you could.possibly need. We would definitely stay here again.

"More than everything you need"

by Matthew T.


Place has everything and so much more. The layout of the house easily suits the whole family. Every item in the house is carefully thought of. House is stocked with all the basics. The outside is unlike anywhere else. Sitting, eating, cooking - it’s all there. Kids can play; adults can relax. House is near walking trails and close to anywhere you want to go. Or you can eat in at the great table. Hosts care about the place and you. Easy directions and the process makes sense. Great time and can’t recommend enough.

"Amazing Vacation Rental"

by Michele K.


We had a group of 8 friends (4 couples). The house and everything about it dis not disappoint. 4 king bedrooms with their own bathrooms, everything you would need in the kitchen. The owners have thought of everything. We lucked out on perfect weather (Oct 26-31). We spent most of our time in the outdoor living area enjoying the fireplace, flat screen TV and the comfortable furniture. It was a fantastic trip and we would book this property again if ever in Asheville. This house is wonderful!

"New Review"

by Lisa V.


We had a fantastic time at Bittersweet! The house is beautiful, very clean, it has everything you can possibly need and then some, and the beds and pillows are incredible! The outdoor space was amazing, we spent evenings outside with a fire, so cozy and comfortable. A+!!!

"Couples fall weekend retreat"

by George W.


The house is exactly as advertised. Modern beautiful very spacious 4 bedroom with en-suite bathrooms. The decor with expertly done, with all high end amenities The outside space was gorgeous and relaxing. With hiking trails directly across the street, there’s no need to leave the property. Would highly recommend Bittersweet!


by Nancy D.


We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. No detail was left out. The house was so pretty and so comfortable and used high-end everything from the silverware to the bedding to the toilet paper. There was no skimping. we particularly enjoyed the outside area spent every evening with football on the TV hanging out around the fire. We were very pleased.

"Peaceful sanctuary"

by Joseph L.


Beautifully appointed home, ideal for a friends reunion weekend. Home was perfect.

"September at Bittersweet"

by Beth S.


The property exceeded our expectations!! The house and grounds were well kept, fully stocked with amenities, and peacefully quiet. Our family (4 adult sibling couples) enjoyed plenty of meals and football game viewing together and well appointed areas to sit and talk. It was a beautiful time of year to visit and we will tell our friends about this special place.

"Wonderful getaway"

by Deborah A.


What a wonderful property! Exactly as described and was perfect for our group of 4 couples. The outside fireplace with the water fall was a great place to chat and catch up! Kitchen was well appointed, comfortable beds and quiet neighborhood.

"Beautiful Home"

by Jennifer M.


Great stay at a beautiful property! The house has everything you could possibly need. Fabulous beds and bedding in all 4 bedrooms.

"40th bday Girls Trip"

by Dayna H.


This house is gorgeous! The owners have taken the time to truly make sure you have everything. From snacks, drinks, labeling kitchen/light switches, to a full binder of information for the house and surrounding area. The checkin and communication was simple and speedy. The house was clean and in a great quiet location. We had 5 ladies for a reunion and this house was perfect! We used Uber a couple nights which was no problem. The backyard sitting area with a waterfall was the best to wake up to and enjoy morning coffee watching the butterflies and birds. The house has updated appliances with 3 refrigerators, plenty of sitting area (think we counted 35 chairs) and great king size comfy mattresses. It honestly had everything! It was a quick 15-20min drive to downtown and 9min to a local grocery store. The roads and neighborhood were beautiful. I can’t wait to come back!!! It was 100% Bittersweet leaving. Thank you to the owners for sharing this little slice of heaven with us!

"Asheville in July"

by Charles C.


We had a wonderful time. Family the first week and couple friends the second. Great weather compared to our Texas heat. House was wonderful; you never know for sure from the website, but Bittersweet was everything it said it was and more! Would definitely return.

"YaYa's 60th celebration"

by Jenny C.


The house was perfect for 6 long time friends from high school celebrating their 60th birthdays! We loved the kitchen/dining room area to gather and even put together a puzzle on the table. Our very favorite part however was not the inside but the outside covered area with fireplace/waterfall/covered dining area! We are already planning our next trip back!


by Brent E.


We had 4 couples stay here. It was great. Host even called day 2 to check on us. Communication was more than we expected. House was beautiful. Would stay here again.

"Surprise Birthday Getaway"

by Casey G.


We rented this house for a surprise birthday trip and wow it was amazing. This was the most well stocked house I’ve ever stayed in from snacks and coffee to a full set of cookware. The pictures of the outdoor space don’t do it justice at all, it’s a tiny oasis out in Asheville.

"Absolutely fabulous!"

by Brenda B.


There are not enough superlatives to accurately describe our stay at Bittersweet. First of all, the home is dropdead gorgeous inside and out. The owners have thought of every creature comfort imaginable, and then some. Every aspect of this home exceeded our expectations. The amenities inside the home were thoughtful and inclusive, write down two snacks, a coffee bar, serving dishes, pantry shelf, linens, glassware – everything a home needs. The outside pavilion living room with full fireplace was a gathering spot for us every night. The sounds of the waterfall were soothing and peaceful. Call today one of the seven other casts would raise his or her glass to me - the organizer - and say “Well done!” we rode the hop on hop off trolley two days in a row to visit various sites we wanted to see, including lunch at the famous Terrace at Grove Park Inn. We enjoyed dinner and drinks on the rooftop of Hemmingway’s and celebrated my birthday dinner at Vinnie Neighborhood restaurant. Lunch at sierra Nevada brewery provided a great afternoon as well. But each evening, we built a fire, sat around talking and laughing like old friends do, the peaceful sound of the waterfall added to the ambience and pleasure. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for thinking of every creature, comfort and amenity that anyone could want during a vacations day.

"Outstanding accommodations"

by Michelle J.


We can’t compliment this property and the service that was provided. The property managers were so responsive in helping us plan for our stay. Proactively checked in with us before and after our arrival to make sure everything was satisfactory! The house was immaculate and decorated so beautifully ❣️One of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. Thanks so much to Rachel and Ron for sharing your beautiful property- definitely a perfect choice for an Asheville vacation!!

"Gathering of Friends"

by Cathy F.


We were a group of 3 retired couples meeting at Bittersweet to spend time together. Your beautiful home was absolutely perfect! Spacious and well laid out so each couple had privacy and comfort. Added extras like the coffee and goodies was wonderful!

"amazing, esp if you love outdoor entertainment"

by Jamie Z.


Everything about this property was 'off the charts' amazing! If you enjoy outdoor entertainment (e.g., wood fire place, grilling & chilling), don't hesitate on booking this property. Our neighborhood friend group of 8 would rebook this place in a heartbeat.

"Perfect Spring Break"

by Stephanie M.


We were extremely pleased with our accommodations at this beautiful home. It was an early college Graduation celebration for my daughter and she loved it. We enjoyed the fireplace outside and ate the most delicious meals referred to us by the management group. We will definitely be back.

"Great getaway for my wife's 50th birthday"

by Anothony L.


Great property in a great location! Spacious , clean, beautifully decorated, well appointed home that is close to downtown Asheville and nearby to so many things to see and do. I recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway with a group of friends.

"Beautiful , comfy home with amazing outdoor space"

by Vickie P.


We came for an extended family after Christmas holiday. Everyone was thrilled with their suites and we had plenty of room for a large family meal. It’s a beautiful space and the hosts went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and cared for. We highly recommend!

"Christmas getaway"

by Beth F.


We stayed at Bittersweet for a family getaway with our adult kids right before Christmas. Everyone had their own space, and the common spaces were perfect for our group of 8. We affectionately named the lower family room the “Bourbon room”. We had a great time exploring Biltmore and Asheville! The outside and inside of the house were beautiful and comfortable- we hope to stay again soon!


by Nicole S.


Property was exactly as described, beautiful and extremely clean, which is my number one priority!

"Beautiful place!"

by David A.


My wife and I just went there with 3 other couples to celebrate my wife’s 50 birthday and see the fall colors. The house is beautiful, roomy, and has the best back yard living area to enjoy time with friends by the fire while listening to the incredible waterfall. This place has it all. We would definitely stay there again.

"Long weekend"

by Diana


The house is fantastic. Went with 4 couples for a relaxing mountain trip. All the rooms were great as were the gathering places in the house. But the backyard provides the 'wow' factor. You'll wish your yard had this layout. Good location too. Spent a day on Blueridge Parway, visiting Black Mountain and exploring Asheville (TOPS is a must stop). Everything was even better than the description. We'd love to come back.

"Reunion of Friends"

by Lynn H.


Beautiful home for a wonderful gathering of longtime friends. Only 15 minutes to downtown Asheville. We used UBER to go to dinner and had no issues getting to restaurants or home. We loved the outdoor space, the heaters, fireplace and the waterfall. Each couple had a beautiful bedroom with private bath and there are multiple indoor options to gather as well. We loved this house and hope to return in the future. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful home!

"Lovely home, as described in listing"

by Donna M.


Lovely home, as described in listing

"Spectacular home in country setting"

by Bob and Nancy R.


Longtime girlfriends gathered from all over the country to spend four nights at this beautiful home. The setting was gorgeous, the home incredibly well-equipped with every detail covered and plenty of areas in which to gather…in front of a roaring fire with the sounds of the crickets and waterfall, around the large dining table or in the warm and cozy lower den. The bathrooms were lovely and filled with all we needed, even thick terry robes. The only issue might have been the longer drive into Asheville with curvier, country roads…not much of a problem for us because we had perfect fall weather. All in all, it was a lovely mountain experience and a gorgeous home.

"Must be experienced"

by Patricia B.


The home surprises at every turn. Thoughtful and generous stocking of supplies, tasteful and delightful decorating soothes the senses. Bedrooms and bathrooms are all over the top! Add an outdoor TV/fireplace and dining area easily able to be used constantly, due to cool mountain evenings. We are regular VRBO guests from US to Europe. Definitely in our top three venues. Thank you, Rachel and Roy. Appreciate your home and renting it to happy guests.

"Great space for couples!"

by Cheryl B.


This house is a great space for couples. We had 4 couples and each had their own king bedroom suite. Additionally the outside space was spectacular for visiting! We spent most of the time out back under the covered porch and ate all of our meals in the outside dining room.

"Island dwellers loved the mountains!"

by Connie C.


Bittersweet is a fabulous vacation home. Our party of four couples assigned numbers to the bedrooms and then picked numbers out of a hat to determine who got what room. With four king size beds and en suite baths, everyone was a winner! The outdoor space is exceptional. We took a comedy bus tour of Asheville, tubed down the river, hiked up Chimney Rock, and shopped at Black Mountain. Bittersweet is conveniently located to Asheville attractions. Each couple cooked one night. Grocery stores are convenient and the kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal. Having a choice of covered indoor or outdoor dining is particularly nice. We had a blast! Thank you for creating such a beautiful vacation spot.

"New Review"

by Wayne C.


Bittersweet was a perfect home for our family vacation. The home and property were better than advertised and had everything we needed. We spent every evening in the covered, outside area. It was great for conversation, movies, morning coffee, or just napping while listening to the beautiful waterfall. The house had lots of room to gather, or to just be alone. The property is close to Asheville, but yet in the country. It is conveniently located to all of our activities- Biltmore, zip lining, white water rafting, great food, Great Smokey Mountain Railroad, and gem mining. We can't wait to get back!

"Just like the pics!"

by Sandi B.


loved our stay at bittersweet. beautifully appointed and perfectly spacious for our needs. loved being able to walk out the door to a few trailheads.


by Dan P.


5 star house over the top home well organized like staying in a 5 star resort


by Stephanie S.


This property is amazing, every inch of this amazing property has everything you would ever want in a VRBO. The kitchen has everything you will need for your stay. The four fabulous bedroom suites make the stay comfortable and cozy. The king size beds were outstanding and every couple had their own bathroom and extra large showers .The outside backyard area is a masterpiece of comfort, fireplace, tv, grill, waterfall, and fire pit. We will be back to this property. I cant not say enough great things about the easy check-in and communications with the property owners!!!! Thank you for an amazing VRBO *Stephanie and Don Speer Tom and Jess Dwelley Mike and Anne Bailey Jeff and Tami Martin

"Three Diamonds"

by Clarissa S.


A memorable experience full circle!!! My 5 female adult family members and I spent three night at Bittersweet. First I commend the AVL Management Team. They were thoughtful, courteous and very informative. They kept in touch from the beginning to the end of our stay. Now the property. "Three Diamonds" all the way. Out of all the high-end vacation properties my family and I have visited over the years, Bittersweet is at the top of the list for us. The owner made sure no details were overlooked in this luxury home and outdoor space. We found everything to be just as pictured and described on the two websites we visited. Everything was great. The home is beautiful, comfortable and simply amazing. "We didn't want to leave, but we had to go." For sure now, we will return. We send a special shout out to the owner and management team for providing us with this memorable staycation experience. Thank you!

"Amazing gem of a home"

by Tony W.


We came to Asheville for a 50th Bday party with some friends. The pictures looked amazing so I booked it. The pictures simply don’t do justice to the detail and care that went into this home. Ample space for 4 couples and the outdoor area is stunning. The waterfall next to the covered seating area gave the perfect backdrop to an entertainment area that we used each day of our stay. Can’t say enough about this place. Highly recommend it. And thank you to the management group for helping us with some late requests. We’ll be back for sure.


by Judy S.


This property is the ultimate luxury getaway. The owners have spared no expense with the detailed and impressive yet comfortable decor throughout. The beds were so very comfy. The bathrooms were that of a luxury spa. There were snacks for us that were enjoyed by all. Each day that I woke up and saw new things around the house and property that I had missed the day prior. We enjoyed dining outdoors next to the beautiful waterfall. I look forward to our next visit.

"Perfect spots for a couples gathering"

by Stacy D.


Exactly as described. Clean and every detail attended to perfectly. Having 4 “master suites” made it a perfect place for couples to gather. The outdoor space was amazing!


by Tracey B.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

"Loved the waterfall"

by Danette M.


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

"Worth every penny!"

by Robin R.


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!

"Annual Family Trip"

by Kate P.


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.


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.


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.

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


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.


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!


by Greg V.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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

"Relaxing Vacation"

by Patricia K.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!


by Janet B.


Bittersweet Lane is perfect. The home is beautiful and has everything we needed. It was a lovely, relaxing stay.

"Peaceful perfection"

by Michael P.


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.


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.


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.


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.


The house was very well appointed and no more than 20 minutes to anywhere.

"Perfect Mountain Getaway"

by Kevin R.


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.


Beautiful place! So peaceful and gorgeous! Steps in the dark were a little problem. Loved it! Great job!!


by Beth T.


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.


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.


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!


by Jennifer M.


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.


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.


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.


Excellent property and peaceful location .Great time with old friends.

"Couple's retreat"

by Julie G.


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.


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.


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.


Beautiful, comfortable and convienient

"Thoughtful details"

by Ellen M.


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.


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.


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.


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.


by Pamela M.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!

"Beautiful home and outdoor areas"

by Tom C.


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.


by Libbi S.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.
