Made last minute reservation for a two bedroom unit. The resort is old (1980s) and could use some updating but our unit was very clean. Steps to master suite (about15) are narrow but still nice. Like jacuzzi tub in master. Kitchen is nice ( glad...More
Property was recently acquired by Diamond Resorts. It is a typical Diamond property in that it was in need of repair and updating. We had a 1 bedroom deluxe unit. The carpet was stained, the screen door fell right off the track and maintenance didn't...More
Stayed here through Diamond Resorts International Sampler program which was designed to entice people to showcase properties and upgrade ownership. What a dismal failure. Built on hillside and bedroom, kitchen and bath in lower level which feels like a dark basement.. Very dated and cheap......More
The units here were built in the 1980's. They are huge compared to new condos, probably about 1800 square feet. They have been updated somewhat. Everything is nice, but not the latest decor. No fancy granite countertops in the kitchen, for instance. The beds are...More
We stayed at the Fairway Forrest (now by Diamond Resorts- which those guys are a JOKE!) but the resort was ok. Highly dated but offered all interior amenities! Beds were all memory foam. 2 restaurants within 5 mins, 1 grocery store within 10 mins. Everything...More

There's a zipline on the Sapphire Resort property called Vordach. It kinda goes across the ski slopes and through the trees. The second line feels the highest. It wasn't super crazy but it was fun and got the adrenaline going. It was also quite affordable if you're staying at the resort. (There may be a bigger one in Highlands, but it's a good bit more expensive.)
There's no need for a guided tour to hike the area. There are lots of well marked trails, especially in the Gorges State Park. But two books are very helpful, with directions and maps. Kevin Adams "Waterfalls of North Carolina" and Jonny Malloy's "Hiking North Carolina's National Forests." The Malloy book even has maps and two good hikes in Panthertown Valley. We referred to the book a lot.
