Cashiers house description

It's all about the view . Enjoy exceptional long range views well into South Carolina from our mountain top home situated at an elevation of 4500 feet . On clear days expect to see lakes Jocasse, Keowee, and Hartwell. The show continues after dark the as lights come on in Salem, Clemson, Pendleton and Easley.

Our family loves exploring Panthertown Valley with it's miles of trails and 26 waterfalls. Panthertown can be accessed on foot from our property. A short drive will get you to Gorges State Park, Whitewater Falls, Whiteside Mountain, Pisgah Forest, or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

If shopping and restaurants are calling, check out Cashiers, Highlands, Brevard or even Asheville. All are just a short drive away.

When you come in from your explorations of the surrounding area, our comfortable home awaits . On the main level there is a fully stocked kitchen and living area, two bedrooms (one queen, two twins), and one full bath. Upstairs is a bedroom (king) with a deck and full bath . Downstairs is a bedroom (queen) with a deck and full bath . My favorite part of the house is the covered deck with the wood burning fireplace on the main level.

                        I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience Young at Heart provided for our family get-together. Part of it is the home itself, and the spectacular setting at the top of a mountain outside Cashiers (the locals say "CASH-ers"). But the warm hospitality and thoughtful consideration provided by our host took our stay up a couple of notches, turning our visit into a memory I know we will all cherish. Even though Manning wasn't there (until he and his wife showed up as we were leaving to clean our last day), many little personal touches gave the feeling that we were guests at a friend's place, not merely short-term renters. From the trail maps and custom-put together hiking itineraries, to the well-stocked kitchen, including wine and whiskey, the jar of little candy bars on the counter, and the fleece vests "in case you forgot yours," as the note said, everything had been thought out to ensure we had a great time without having to head out and try to find stuff at a store. This is a good thing, as you are a ways up on the mountain, and won't want to head out lightly. Do your shopping in a bigger town before you head into the mountains, and don't forget something to throw onto the grill. A day trip to Cashiers and Highlands nearby was fun, but mostly we stayed put, not going farther than our feet would take us. That included a fantastic, memorable hike down to the waterfalls in Panthertown Valley just down the hill, including clambering under Schoolhouse Falls and scrambling along the creek after looking over the cliff to the hills far beyond. And the fleeces, plus the monogrammed throw blankets, came in handy. Even in July, it was – blessedly – chilly at night, and we lit a fire every evening, either the simple to use but nice enough to fool you gas fireplace in the living room, or the wonderful woodburning hearth out on the deck. Everything worked as promised and better, there was plenty of room for the seven of us plus golden retriever, and we certainly hope to come back in the future. One more thing – the photos don't do the place justice.

                        Our party of seven stayed at Young at Heart in July 2013. Manning was awesome to work with when planning our trip. We planned to do a lot of hiking and he gave us many recommendations. We used the hiking directions he left in the home and were rewarded with some of the most beautiful trails and waterfalls we have ever seen! We even saw the infamous 500 pound bear that lives on the mountain during our week-long stay. The location of the home is fantastic. The home is almost at the very top of the mountain with fantastic views. The home is as you see on the pictures; very neat and clean. We used the outdoor fireplace every night as the temps at the top of the mountain dipped into the low 60s or upper 50s during our stay. Our children, ages 21, 17, and 12 loved this vacation and want to come back next summer. We will definitely contact Manning next time we visit Cashiers, NC.

                        This home is spectacular. My family (8 adults and some well behaved dogs) and I spent the Thanksgiving week at Young at Heart. It exceeded all expectations. The owner was gracious and very attentive - sending us detailed directions and instructions for everything from area hikes to how to use the gas fireplace. He has thought of everything to make your stay exceptional (including having an optional wi-fi hotspot - my sister, who is in law school, appreciated that for her studies, no one else wanted to be that plugged in!). The home literally sits at the top of the mountain and the views are commanding; you can see all the way into South Carolina. The accommodations are pitch perfect. We were unsure what to expect with so many of us packing in there with so much stuff (lots of provisions for a holiday week), but we never once felt cramped as the home has two "master" suites on separate levels with en suite baths plus an additional full bath for two other bedrooms, so everyone had plenty of private space to spread out. The location is just a stone's throw from downtown Cashiers and a beautiful and easy 40 minute drive to Highlands (45 or so to Brevard). There are hiking trails right out the front door that lead to some spectacular waterfalls - you'll want to use the walking sticks the owner keeps by the front door! At the end of the day we all enjoyed lighting a fire on the deck to enjoy the sunset, have some s'mores, and play board games. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday. We will definitely be going back. This is a gem and we would highly recommend it.

                        This spacious, comfortable mountain retreat is absolutely amazing! I was there in early September with several friends for a wedding nearby in Cashiers, and I could not have imagined a better way to spend a fall weekend. While situated just down the street from the wedding festivities and grocery restocking, the house feels pleasantly far removed from civilization, with breath-taking back porch views to wake up to, an abundance of lounging and kitchen space to spread out in, an entire valley's worth of hiking miles just out the front door, and an outdoor living room in the back (complete with real fireplace) perfect for toasting, and watching, the start of college football season. The house is immaculately well kept, but with all the rustic, welcoming touches that make a mountain house worth relaxing into- particularly after returning from the epic, gorgeous six-hour hike we undertook from the trailhead just a stone's throw away. I'd highly recommend taking advantage of this lovely home and singular kind of hospitality, and if you go, don't forget to sign one of the bowl of popsicle sticks by the door- leaving a note commemorating your adventures, adding to the pile already there, is the perfect cap to a stay...

                        A well-equipped, pretty, and clean house with world class views. The fireplace on the porch and the fenced in area for dogs accessed from the deck are nice. The house is very comfortable for up to four people. Six would be a squeeze. There is only one sitting area with a couch and three chairs. The master bathroom is nice, but the bathroom on the main level is very small, and it is shared by two bedrooms. The bathroom on the bottom level is ok, and there is a queen bed there in a room that looks like it was designed to be another sitting area or recreation room. So, two couples could be quite happy in the house with one couple on the top floor and the other on the bottom if one couple does not mind the queen bed. The neighborhood is private and very quiet. Nice neighborhood, but access is by a steep, very winding paved road that takes about 15 minutes to get up or down from Hwy 64. A challenge in rain or darkness, and not something enjoyably tackled for quick trip to grocery store. We had a lot of rain and clouds (it is near the top of a mountain). The only DVD player is built into the TV in the master bedroom. No DVD library. Satellite TV in living area worked well.

                        A stay at the Young At Heart house does not feel like a rental - it feels like you're a guest in the home of a gracious host. Manning and Mary were wonderful to deal with; they genuinely want their guests to have a "Tip Top of the Mountain" experience - and you will not be disappointed! You are literally on the top of the mountain, watching the weather change by the minute over the valley. Our trip included three hikes to waterfalls in Panthertown Valley (an access trail is minutes away from the front door), a hike in nearby Gorges State Park (don't miss Rainbow Falls!) and an afternoon of tubing with a pontoon boat on Lake Glenville, which was the highlight of the vacation for our 12 and 11 year old children. The house is very spacious, clean and lovely, with a downstairs suite with it's own view of the valley. Overall it was the best trip we've ever had!

                        Up and away from it all for two years in a row! We have been coming to Sapphire Valley for over twenty years and I must say that this has one of the best big views in the area. Very peaceful and wonderful mountain views into South Carolina. Ample space for a large family and nice and clean. We particularly appreciated the covered deck area with fireplace,available TV and gas grill. There is also a fenced in dog run for our well behaved terriers! Lots of great restaurants, hikes and golf nearby. If its rains there is wireless internet and satellite television. Manning is great host and easy to communicate with.

                        Beautiful home with fantatic views on top of a mountain ridge near Cashiers and Sapphire Valley. The owner is very personable and went out of his way to make our stay as convenient and comfortable as possible. The home is completely equiped with everything needed, top quality upgrades and very well maintained. The views are as good as they get in the Smokys, from any of 3 spacious decks. The outside fireplace became our favorite spot for cool mornings and evenings. We were seeking a peaceful place with a remote but safe feel to unwind; this home fit the bill perfectly. We made day trips to Asheville / Builtmore, Brevard, Highlands, Franklin, Morganton, and many of the local waterfalls. Access to the home is about a 10 minute beautiful (steep) drive from the main road, all paved. The homes in the area are all upscale and nicely spread apart; we could not see any other home from Young At Heart, yet felt safe. This is not necassarily a place for those looking quick access to local city facilities (plan on about a 20 minute drive), but is a great place to enjoy cool breezes, fresh air and first class views. There are many higher end restaurants, golf courses, shopping, art gallaries etc. within 20 to 45 minute drive. We've rented several VRBO homes in several states and this home rates up at the top of all our positive experiences.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Father of two, husband of one, avid outdoorsman who loves to spend time on the mountain with all of the above and then some.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cashiers:
                      Big views from elevation that provides cool summer days and nights in contrast with the hot humid days at home. Excellent hiking. Access to fine restaurants, shopping, golf and plenty of great people to hang out with.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our perfect weekend involves a little company, some hiking, a lot of great food, drink, and stories in front of the outdoor fireplace.
