About Katy Valdes
2/1/2021 We purchased this home in December 2020 from the original owners, John and Stacy Thomas. It had been our dream to own this spectacular cabin for many years. Like you, we rented Sapphire Heaven through VRBO. It was a surprise anniversary trip, and when we arrived in early fall, we immediately fell in love…with the cabin! Over the years, we returned many times for romantic get-aways and with our children. We now have 4! Gabriella, 9, Evangeline, 7, Max, 5, and Xavier, 2. They love coming here almost as much as we do! When John put this home on the market, we knew that it was meant to be. When building the home, John put so much thought and love into the building materials and design. He built it in 2007 from 150-year-old hand hewn timbers which were salvaged from two historic barns. One of the barns was built in the mid-1800’s and stood on the Battlefield of Gettysburg prior to and during the Civil War. The other was built in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania by skilled Amish craftsmen during the mid-1840’s using beech, oak, black walnut, maple, fir and hemlock trees. The still usable timbers from these structures were pressure washed with a borax solution and loaded onto a flatbed semi-truck for delivery to Sapphire, NC. What John and his local craftsman builder were able to come up with using those timbers, is truly a work of art! It didn’t hurt that that work of art was positioned on one of the most majestic, tranquil 5-acre mountain parcels that we had ever seen! The view! We are so happy to share our beloved cabin with you! We hope that you will be able to find an opportunity to stay with us! Sincerely, Brad and Katy Valdes

Why Katy Valdes chose Sapphire
Around the chic mountain village of Cashiers, North Carolina, (10 minutes from the cabin) fashionable development keeps pace with the growing demand for vacation and retirement homes. Easily understandable considering Cashiers is located in the waterfall area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where high elevation lakes, streams, and rivers abound. Adding to the natural attractions that beckon the thousands of affluent, seasonal residents (plus a multitude of visitors) are notable golf courses, trendy shops, fine dining establishments, and tennis resorts. Asheville, home of the Biltmore Estate, is a cultural hub not to be missed, less than an hour drive away.
What makes this Cabin unique
Do you desire the peace, quite, and solitude of being by yourself, with only the splendor of nature and your loved one(s) in the mountains, but still very close to fine dining, upscale shopping, outdoor activities, and resort amenities? We did, and it was a most difficult combination to find. Sapphire Heaven is the result of our quest to create that rare combination. As a bonus we even have a private waterfall within a short hike.
