This place is amazing. I really hate to tell people about Bittersweet but it's only fair to give credit where credit is due. Wonderful location, great hosts, comfortable room that lacked for nothing. Stayed in the suite during the first weekend of October 2014 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Highly advise staying here. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed at the Suite on Valentine's Day weekend to celebrate my birthday. This place is just awesome. Owners, Matthew and Stephen are very welcoming and upon arrival have everything you need for a very pleasant stay. Having the breakfast items, fresh fruit, coffee, etc. available is a very nice and thoughtful touch. Location is simply beautiful,... More

My husband and I just had a 4 day excursion to beautiful Asheville, NC, and stayed at Bittersweet Cottages in the Suite. What an experience! The Suite is a perfectly appointed oasis in the mountains. The modern, yet cozy design lent itself to relaxing mornings enjoying fresh brewed coffee while gazing upon gorgeous mountain views and distant Asheville. The unique... More

My husband and I recently returned from a lovely stay in the "cottage" for three nights. This place exceeded our expectations!!!! Every last detail has been thought of. We love the hot tub during cocktail hour!!!. The location is fabulous - we stocked up on goodies at one of the local markets and hunkered down. No reason to leave. We... More

This place was amazing! We were looking for a place to reconnect and renew and we found it! From the moment you walk down the steps and hear the waterfall, to landing on the deck and seeing the amazing view, we knew we had found our slice of heaven. We spent two nights and had to add another night because... More

This is the kind of place that you almost don't want to brag about, because it offers the perfect retreat setting! If you are looking for some quiet solitude to recharge and relax, or if you are planning the perfect romantic weekend, this must be on your bucket list! Amenities such as a private hot tub, Koi pond, separate entrance... More

unfortunately, i do not have to stay here to rate the bittersweet poorly - as my bad experience began just in even trying to book the cottage. the owner was quite frankly evasive and pompous, not returning my first 2 calls at all after leaving a voice message asking for more information and to be called back. then after finally...

We had the BEST experience in the Bittersweet Cottage the first week of November 2014. The accommodations are beyond cozy and the view is breathtaking! We got plenty of use from the quaint gas fireplace, hot tub overlooking the mountainside and huge bedroom/bathroom. The cottage has everything we could need and the kitchen was well-stocked with all necessities (including eggs,... More

My partner and I have been coming here for eight years. Why you may ask, well it's the beauty, the charm, the relaxation and the privacy. We always get the suite but the cottage is beautiful too. You can't imagine the serenity of Bittersweet its a place you won't want to miss
