                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Hello, we are Al & Linda Carlsten living in the Charleston, SC area for over 26 years. We are transplants from the beautiful but cold State of Wisconsin. We have the best of both worlds with the beaches of South Carolina and the Mountains of Western North Carolina.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sapphire:
                  We have vacationed in the Cashiers, NC area for about 10 years until the cabin bug bit us. It is a beautiful place to escape the hot summers of Charleston. It also gave us a place to find a little cold weather and snow in the winter when we get a little homesick for Wisconsin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our beautiful log cabin with a red tin roof is great for every season even when it rains. We are nestled in the woods at the end of the cul-de sac, the highest point in Whisper Lake with views of Hogback Mountain, Mountain Laurel and flowering Rhododendrons. Life couldn't be better stargazing, while in the hot tub. Watching a roaring fire in the outside fireplace, drinking a glass of wine makes it complete. Our grand-children love to roast marshmellows and make samores just before going to bed. We love having our morning coffee on the deck watching the fog roll in over the mountains. The afternoons are a pefect time for a tea party on the loft porch with our three grand-daughers.
