Owner info

Bittersweet Cottage & Suite

Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Asheville, NC, USA:
We purchased this property from our neighbors in 2000. The views were quite inspiring! We considered a long-term rental but then realized we needed to do a gut-renovation. (Things were in pretty deplorable condition.) We finished the renovation in 2007 and have been renting the Suite as a short-term vacation rental ever since. Our home is also on the property but you will never see us unless you want to. We are usually "around" should you need any assistance. Your complete privacy, however, is assured.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Suite is very convenient to downtown Asheville and The Blue Ridge Parkway. And the view? Unbelievable!
