My husband and I stayed at the suite at Bittersweet for an anniversary weekend. It was exactly what I was looking for, a mountain retreat without being a cheesy 80s cabin. It was perfect. The view from the deck and suite is amazing. The suite is perfect, very clean and very comfortable. We did not want to leave and cannot... More

My husband and I just recently stayed in the cottage and to our delight, everything was as beautiful in person as it is shown in the photos. Matt was so attentive, friendly and welcoming, which was also refreshing. They have done a great job anticipating and meeting every need any guest may have during their stay. You can definitely tell... More

WOW!!! Calling this place incredible would be an understatement, it was beyond our highest expectations!! My husband and I came to stay at the Bittersweet Cottage on our honeymoon. As soon as we walked in the door we were jumping up and down. The place is BEAUTIFUL!! Just 5 minutes outside of Asheville it is a hidden gem. Matt &... More

Stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed! Cottage was beautiful, clean, with wonderful amenities and lots of perks (breakfast in the fridge, gourmet kitchen, plenty of towels, robes). The best part is the view - Unbelievable! You can see the mountains and the City overlook, not only from the deck, but the hot tub and even the... More

We booked Bittersweet Cottage as a rest stop after we celebrated our daughter's destination wedding in Georgia. We could not have been better pampered. Matt met us at the cottage to give us details on the property and advice on where to get food, services, etc. He was very hospitable, Thanks! We were amazed by all the incredible quality that...

I've stayed in both cottages and always had an amazingly peaceful and fun time. The two cottages are completely different in decor; Arts & Crafts or Asian, but completely consistent in delightfulness. Accomodations are simple but complete; towels are soft, bed linens comforting, breakfasts nourishing. The hosts are more than helpful; giving as much information and personal suggestions as you...

This is a the perfect place to go and relax and enjoy the scenery. It was close enough to get into Asheville and enjoy dinner, shopping, art, breweries etc, but secluded enough to enjoy nature. The kitchen is well set up and made cooking a nice meal possible. Stephen and Matt are great hosts, meet all of your needs and... More

Stayed 3 nights in the suite. For my wife and I, who are both small, the place fit perfectly. But if you are larger, or travel with much luggage, you may find the quarters a bit tight – everything fits exactly so without much extra open space. As I said, for us, it was perfect: a private deck with views... More

Found Bittersweet online looking for a private get-away near Asheville. Although it was pricier than I normally would spend compared to high-end hotels in downtown there was no comparison! The cottage was immaculate and comfortable. The view from the deck and hot tub were spectacular!! Stephen and Matt had the kitchen stocked with a few breakfast items, but there's a... More

This place was so lovely that I almost hate to review it for fear that everyone will want to stay there. The location is gorgeous, the decor is flawless. We arrived to find muffins, bananas, eggs, butter, etc. waiting on us. There's a full kitchen and grill if you feel like cooking, but mainly, you'll just want to turn on... More

Thank you St. Louis! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. As to having the property on the market. It is now off the official market. Sales in Asheville are particularly flat right now so, if you are interested in staying at Bittersweet please go right ahead and make that reservation. I suspect that we will be here for... More
