About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Designed by Al Platt (yes, the same one who designed the nationally recognized 2006 HGTV Dream Home), Mountain Laurel Cottage not only takes advantage of the impressive view from this five acre estate, but also offers a superb natural mountain experience. Enjoy a cool mountain breeze, or the warmth of a crackling fire, on the comfortably furnished, screened, living room/porch, which is the common family area of the home. Screened on three sides, it has a high vaulted ceiling, and lets you enjoy the acres of surrounding nature. Inside the home are the bedrooms, bathrooms, den/living area and the kitchen that opens onto that screened living room/porch area. Peace, quiet, and privacy are your neighbors. From the living room/porch step outside onto an uncovered deck where there is a large gas grill ready to cook your favorite meal. This is truly designer mountain living!
The Mountain Laurel Cottage estate is situated at an elevation of 3800 ft, on the 320 acre, gated, Preserve at Rock Creek. With 215 of the Preserve’s acres dedicated to conservation; pristine forests, plentiful waterfalls, and ancient rock formations are all a splendid hike away.
Fine dining, boutique/convenience shopping, additional golf / tennis facilities, more stream/lake fishing, renowned hiking, and a multitude of incredible waterfalls are all within fifteen minutes. There is even a post office, a gas station, and a convenience store five minutes of Mountain Laurel Cottage, on the main east-west artery, State Road 64.

About: There is so much to enjoy on the Preserve’s 320 acres including walking the Rock Creek trail and climbing to the waterfalls, horseback riding in our meadow, trout fishing in our two ponds or simply exploring the 115 species of flora and 100 species of animals that live on the Preserve. There is all of the great outdoors to enjoy but sometimes its about sitting on the porch and enjoying the views. Also, near by is swimming, golf, tennis, fine dining and family activities.
Why Sapphire, NC, USA:
National Parks & Recreation Areas: Mt. Laurel Cottage located in The Preserve at Rock Creek is nestled within the Nantahala National Forest, the largest national forest in North Carolina and home to many of the area’s waterfalls. There are lots of activities to enjoy in the Nantahala. Gorges State Park is filled with plunging waterfalls, rugged river gorges, sheer rock walls and one of the greatest concentrations of rare and unique plant species in the eastern United States. Panthertown Valley boasts a density of biodiversity equal to that of a plateau high in the Himalayas, it is practically next door to the Preserve at Rock Creek. The 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway is accessible at many points in this area and the Parkway is great way to take in the gorgeous views. With so many things to do you can easily spend day after day on the Parkway. Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are all within an hour of the entrance to the Preserve at Rock Creek. With all these recreational areas, the number of hiking trails and other outdoor activities are too numerous to mention.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It’s no coincidence that The Preserve at Rock Creek sits in the heart of one of nature’s masterpieces. Located in the Western North Carolina region known as the Land of Waterfalls, the area is home to more than 250 free-falling and cascading waterfalls and boasts a temperate rainforest microclimate that maintains pleasant temperatures even during the hottest times of year. When you’re standing three to four thousand feet above sea level, breathing in crisp mountain air, soothed by the sounds of wildlife and awed by the views of natural spring-fed waterfalls, tranquil streams, massive rock outcroppings, soaring cliffs and hidden caves, you know you’re some place special. The property at this exclusive mountain community is designed to maximize scenic features while maintaining natural integrity. In addition to the waterfalls, the area’s diverse and plentiful plant life is a true highlight, with spring and summer’s wildflowers giving way to the hardwood forest’s impressive displays of color when leaves change in the fall.
