About the property


Our clients do not permit "Instant Booking". Please provide the number and ages of guests in your party, and true nature of your visit. The owners do not permit events/parties/gatherings of any type, or size, to be held at their home.

Bittersweet is located 15 minutes north-east of Downtown Asheville, 15 minutes from Black Mountain, 20 minutes to gates of Biltmore Estate, 20 minutes to UNC Asheville, 4 minutes to Warren Wilson College, 5 minutes to an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and 35 minutes to AVL Regional Airport. It is very close to groceries, gas, restaurants, and some of the BEST homemade ice cream you’ve ever eaten!

Bittersweet boasts 4 luxurious king bedrooms, each with its own private en-suite tile/glass bath; dual sinks, and resort style glass door enclosed showers, plush towels and blow dryers. You’ll sleep soundly on Tempur-Breeze Cooling mattresses with high-end linens and bedding, 4 king down pillows, complete with down comforters to snuggle under. Each bedroom has a flat panel TV discretely hidden behind custom cabinetry. Upon its approach, Bittersweet sits prominently up on your left. It’s artisan shutters and drip chains, professional landscaping; reveal this is no ordinary home. But, you are in for an extraordinary experience.

Enjoy the Vintage French Industrial look, with unique touches, comfortable furnishings, and warm tones. No detail has been overlooked for the comfort of our guests, right down to the cozy bathrobes.

Outfitted with high-end stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, the open kitchen with dining area is the hub of the house, and a wonderful place to enjoy a meal together. The large dining table comfortably seats 8 guests in deliciously upholstered distressed brown leather chairs, bringing in elegance and comfort.

The den with flat panel TV, just off the kitchen, has several conversation areas allowing all to gather and visit to plan the next day. Or, sneak off to the living room, with another flat panel TV, to watch your special show, read a book, or have a quiet conversation in the comfy overstuffed wing chairs.

The outdoor space is AMAZING! At the center of it all is a large waterfall (operation of which is seasonal) with the calming sound of falling water to add to the ambiance. The semi enclosed dining area, with flat panel TV, lends a bit of elegance to outdoor dining and is perfect for those days when the weather just isn’t cooperating. The covered outdoor area boasts a wood burning fireplace, flat panel TV, refrigerator, sink, gas grill, and more comfortable seating. This is everyone’s favorite place to be! Just off this area is also a wood burning fire pit.

Bittersweet; a sense of pleasure tinged with sadness…but that’s OK, you are always welcome to come back!

Beautiful home & outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

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"

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful luxurious mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Can't Top Bittersweet!

  • 5 of 5

Bittersweet is even more incredible in person....from the photos online, we were super impressed. Once we arrived, we were blown away by how amazing this home is. The staff at AVL Luxury Vacation Rentals were on top of everything and are so kind. We had a family reunion of 8 people who came from as close as NC & Georgia, and as far as California & Ecuador. It was a very special time.
