“It's like going to home.”

person found this review helpful

The best part of going to North Carolina was staying with Gary and Sharon. They were great hosts and they really made us feel at home, not just that, they took us in and it really felt like they were taking care of us. I can honestly say that I would look forward to having a morning coffee and a chat to start my day. The place was great, with its many flowers and paths just outside the house. And Shadow and Sunny are invaluable to the Sunset Sweet. If I have the option to stay at this great bed and breakfast, I won't even think about it. You get so much more than just a place to stay. You get a place that warms your heart when you look back.

“Best Anniversary”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I'm a little late on the review been really busy. But this is great place to stay, such a lovely place, and we plan on saying again in the near future. We were served great breakfast, and the yogurt is the best we ever had. We didn't get to walk their trails, but we spent every night in downtown Asheville. We had a blast, and came "home" to what felt like home, and not having any A/C was no problem it felt great, no complaints. They are fun to talk with and great company. We look forward to coming back again! We highly suggest you staying here!

“Three nights in paradise!!!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I HIGHTLY recommend Sunset Sweet to anyone who is travelling to Asheville. Not only is the property incredible (it includes hiking trails, gardens, and fabulous views), Gary and Sharon are amazing! My husband and I felt like we were staying with friends, not people we had just met. Shadow, the most gently dog you will ever meet, made us feel right at home too. Every time we returned from one of our adventures she was waiting for us in the driveway. Our only complaint is that our visit wasn't long enough!

“Excellent place for a stay in the mountains”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sharon and Gary were excellent hosts and incredibly knowledgeable about the options for exploring Asheville and the surrounding areas. If it were not for their suggestions and ideas on what to check out we would have not had as good of a time during our stay. The breakfasts were excellent and the garden surrounding the property was a great thing to enjoy on our mornings at the house.

One thing of note, is that while your room and space are private, it is in the couple's home. We were not aware of that before booking.

“Quiet and Relaxing Mountain Getaway”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Sharon and Gary are a very hospitable and nice couple who make their guests feel welcome and at home. Their property is beautiful and is in good proximity of downtown Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and various hiking trails. Their two dogs are very nice and well-trained; my wife doesn't particularly care for dogs, but she didn't have a problem with them. We felt like we had plenty of privacy even though the accommodations were on the main floor of the couple's home. We stayed over the weekend and got to enjoy Sharon's delicious breakfasts.

“Amazing Property and Great Hosts”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Sweet for 2 nights while we visited Asheville. Gary and Sharon were very kind and understanding when we got in late due to blowing a tire on our way there and when we needed to leave early to visit a sick relative. The property had some great hiking and amazing views and it was fun to have their dogs Shadow and Sunny as hiking companions. The drive to Asheville is very short and there are even some neat local places to visit in nearby Weaverville (Gary and Sharon's recommendations were great!).

If you are staying here during hotter days of the summer the house can get hot as there is no air conditioning, but Sharon graciously provided us with extra fans as it was one of the hotter weekends of the year in Asheville.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are looking for a peaceful and beautiful place to stay this is the place. We had a wonderful stay. The food was great and Gary and Sharon are very sweet people. For our first time to stay in a BnB Sunset Sweet was wonderful. Gary and Sharon gave you all the space you needed to just feel like you were at home. Shadow was a beautful pet and the new puppy was just as sweet. Our hosts were very helpful in filling us in the places to see and how to navigate to get there.

We would recommend Sunset Sweet to anyone wanting a very clean and peaceful place to stay.
