I am reluctant to tell everyone about what a wonderful place this is because it'll be harder to book, but they do such a good job that everyone needs to know.
Every year in January we visit Asheville for our anniversary. It's a tech-free, low-key, eat lots of good food and buy something special for yourself sort of deal. And part of the charm and appeal of it all is Bittersweet Cottage.
We drive into town at brunch on Sunday, eat at Tupelo Honey's, grab some sea salt caramels and bubbly and then make our way up Elk Mountain to the cottage just in time for check-in. We bask in the familiarity and comfort of the place, pause to take in the beautiful view, start up the stove heater and kickback until dinnertime. We head out for dinner and then come back for caramels, bubbly and an awesome nighttime view in the hot tub. And that's just the first day!
I can't imagine starting our year any better than with good food, rest and relaxation. I highly recommend having Stephen and Matt accommodate you in doing something similar.
