Why Matthew Clark chose Asheville

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. We started in late 2005 and finished the renovation in 2007.We 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.

What makes this cottage unique

The Suite is very convenient to downtown Asheville and The Blue Ridge Parkway. And the view? Unbelievable!

Visited for a weekend get away and this is exactly what we needed! It was private and the owner is wonderful to deal with! The cottage is minutes away from anything you want to do! We will definitely stay here when we come back.

Perfect for the Christmas holidays.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Dec 23d, 017 and we were thrilled that the property lived up to its "hype." Beautifully kept & very clean. Only about 5 miles to downtown if the weather is dry and what a view from the living room. We had Xmas dinner at the Grove Park Inn and it was perfect. We ate at Vue 1913 and the food and service were wonderful. All in all, a great vacation.

Absolutely amazing place! Million dollar views and one of the most well appointed VRBO’s with the best owners we’ve ever stayed at. Already booked a return stay.

The PERFECT Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Rarely do we find a place to stay that totally exceeds our every expectation. It seems that others who stayed in this awesome place have thoroughly covered the greatness of it. The view, amenities, and comfort of this place are only eclipsed by the commitment of Matt and Stephen to make your stay a memorable one. We spent a week in Asheville for our anniversary with the second half being at the Suite at Bittersweet. We wanted to relax in the seclusion of the mountain space before returning home. Had we know just how easily accessible Asheville was from the suite, we would have spent the entire week in this gorgeous place. Certainly a place that warrants a return visit.
