About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

You will enjoy this well appointed apartment which is a part of a larger house in which the owners reside. They will be close enough for all your needs but far enough away to respect your privacy. You will have your own private entrance and adjacent covered parking.

The kitchen has a full sized refrigerator and stove as well as granite counters. There is also a washer and dryer which is tastefully tucked away in a small closet. The bedroom has a queen sized bed with pillow topped mattress, two bed-side tables with tiffany style lamps and a large double dresser for your clothes. A mirrored door hides a large walk-in closet for additional storage. The living room is furnished comfortably with a couch and leather chair. The electric fireplace can be set with or without heat should you want the ambiance of a fire but do not need the heat. There is a 50 inch plasma TV on which you will have access to satellite television including Showtime and Home Box Office. There is a DVD player and Wi-fi should you bring your own computer.

The owners will secure guest privileges for you which will allow you to use all the resort’s many amenities including 3 swimming pools (2 outdoor, 1 indoor with hot tub and 2 saunas), miniature golf, game room, exercise room, 3 on-site restaurants, and reasonable rates at the golf course.

This particular area of North Carolina is known as the “Land of Waterfalls”. Add this to the list of above amenities and drives to see these wonderful acts of nature can be a bonus to staying with us for a time. We’ll be glad to help you find the well and lesser known falls in this area.

About The Owner

Our names are Marianne Easton and Nancy Wilson. We are two retired school teachers who chose the Cashiers area because we had been vacationing in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina for years and decided that we preferred the Carolina mountains to the other side of the Smokies. We especially liked the Sapphire Valley area and often chose the Time Shares here at Wyndom/Sapphire Valley for our summer vacations. When we were approached about purchasing a lot here, we decided to accept an offer and after many changes settled on the property we now have. After paying for the property, we started building in 2004 and moved in the house in 2005. We have been supervising the construction of this apartment for about the last three years and now it is finished! So as of this date, 2010, it is brand new! We are looking forward to many guests in the months and years to come. Give us a chance to make your day-- or week-- or month.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Smoky Mountains

As was stated in the above profile, we preferred this side of the Smokies. We also wanted a safe place to stay and since the resort has its own security department and maintenance staff, Sapphire valley seemed the perfect place.

What makes this apartment unique

Since the weather here is delightfully cool in the spring, summer and fall and we have a 12 by 48 foot deck on which to relax, one has the choice of doing absolutely nothing or being as active as the extensive list of amenities suggest.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment for a single or couple. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night! Perfect base for hiking in the area. Loved, loved, LOVED the screened in porch with hammock! No A/C, but you truly don't need it. Stayed cool with the ceiling fans-- and we were there the middle of August. Would stay here again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at this property and it was perfect! It was beautiful, cozy and relaxing. Marianne and Nancy are the perfect host/ neighbor. They were able to offer suggestions of where to shop, dine, hike and see waterfalls in the area. They also have a binder full of brochures of area attractions. After a hard day of hiking, we were able to enjoy the pool and hot tub at the resort. We were able to return to our " home", have a nice home cooked dinner, then relax on the beautiful screened porch with a glass of wine. Or just fall asleep on the double hammock! We can't wait to return. The area is lovely with so much to see and do, but having a "home" makes it even better.

Perfect peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited this property to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The property is a beautiful, peaceful place with many fabulous amenities available at the resort. Unfortunately, our visit was just for a quick weekend, so we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the amenities as much as we would have liked to. We did, however, take a short drive to Highlands to explore the town and the many beautiful waterfalls in the area. Nancy and Marianne have created a perfect place for rest and relaxation, with the location being just a short drive from many other activities offered in the area such as zip-lining and white water rafting. The owners have also provided a very informational binder in the apartment with brochures from the many different recreational areas and restaurants that are nearby, which was a huge help in planning our activities while we were there.

We would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is seeking a quiet place to enjoy some rest and relaxation, with the options to engage in fun activities easily available as well. My husband and I hope to go back again someday!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and restful with great amenities available at the resort. Marianne and Nancy have absolutely thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Beautiful trails and waterfalls are available around Brevard and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. What a beautiful area!

Cozy relaxing and great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners are extremely easy to work with. We had an unfortunate incident that affected our travel plans, and the owners were willing to work with us on changing the dates. The apartment is very new and the screened in porch with a huge hammock an enticing spot to pass some time. The location is ideal for a home base to explore the many beautiful surrounding areas. The kitchen was well appointed. They stock basic supplies i.e. soap, shampoo etc.

We will stay here every time!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here at least 3 times over the past year or so and it is our preferred spot when we visit the area.

The apartment is perfect for a couple looking for a nice, comfortable place with a big screened in porch and the most comfortable hammock.

We have stayed here with our daughter and as a couple. It's just a perfect home base for any mountain activity.
