We really enjoyed a super relaxing long weekend here! We had plans to go skiing and tubing, but after the whole family was recovering from a virus, we opted for restful weekend instead. My kids loved the bunk beds & toys. My pups loved exploring the woods & path to the stream. Hubby and i enjoyed snuggling on the couch and hitting pause. Perfectly quiet & bright beautiful stars at night. Home was clean & comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook all our meals. Linens & beds were comfortable!! Highly recommend this Home and the area.

Absolutely beautiful home with great views and access to everything! The owners are so kind and made our stay so easy. Great amenities in the Sapphire Valley Resort and the location is minutes to Cashiers and Highlands. We will definitely stay again!

“A perfect getaway, beautiful home, very clean and comfortable.”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The owner is very friendly and willing to adjust your schedule if necessary.
The home is located in the beautiful mountains and is centrally located between Brevard and Cashiers with Highlands just a short distance. The Girls had a great time shopping these areas. The guys were able to play golf at several nearby courses and had a splendid adventure on the mountain courses.
Micas is my choice as the best place to eat, Brevard also has several good eating places.
Everyone had a great time.

“Perfect family getaway house and location”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family just got back from spending 4 days at this house. Everything about our trip was perfect: the house is extremely comfortable and located on a lot with a stream running through it (the kids played there for hours). Our activities around the area included renting a boat on Lake Glenville, rock sliding, hiking, paddle boarding, swimming, and visiting Highlands. We loved going to Mica's for dinner and enjoying their live music and fire pit.
The kids were sad to leave! We will definitely be back and stay at this house again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The perfect getaway nestled in the mountains of NC. The house had everything we needed for 2 large families to live comfortably. Loved having access to private beach, rec center with playground, pool, mini golf and gem mining! Great hiking just minutes away. We enjoyed shops and restaurants in nearby Cashiers and Highlands. Next time will also bring tennis rackets and golf clubs!

“Great House”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Great house for a getaway with family/friends. The house is nestled in a quiet, private area surrounded by a beautiful forest. The kids had fun playing by the stream behind the house. You have access to all of the amenities of the Sapphire community center- mini golf, gem mining, lake for fishing, swimming and water sports. Short scenic drive to Cashiers and Highlands for great farm to table restaurants and shopping. Can’t wait to get back up there to relax and get away from the daily grind!
