Every guest has remarked on our exceptional beds for comfort, with Biltmore Sheets and over sized down comforters. Our renters love the fact that we have three Master Bedrooms with private baths. The house is beautifully decorated and well appointed. Our large gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you need to feed those hungry fly fishermen, golfers, hikers and nature enthusiasts.

The log stairway & loft log railings add beauty and charm especially at night when the lights shine through the stairs. Three master bedrooms with private baths make this house very special for 3 couples vacationing together.

About Linda & Al Carlsten
Hello, we are Al & Linda Carlsten living in the Charleston, SC area for over 30 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.
Linda & Al Carlsten purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Linda & Al Carlsten chose Sapphire
We have vacationed in the Cashiers, NC area for about 15 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. After renting in the area with 2 other couples someone always got the bad room. There is no drawing straws for a good bedroom because they are all exceptional in comfort and decor. Each room is unique.
What makes this Cabin unique
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 4 grand-children love to roast marshmallows 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 perfect time for a tea party on the loft porch with our three grand-daughters.

Holiday Dream Vacation
High Whisper is not only a luxury log cabin with personalized details but a perfect family retreat. We were fortunate enough to book a year in advance for the Christmas - New Year's vacation week to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary with our kiddos (ages 8 yrs & 11 yrs old.) The cabin was beautifully decorated with holiday decor; inside and out. Even though this is a very large property it felt cozy and warm, especially with an indoor and outdoor fireplace. The owner's have the cabin fully stocked with linens, blankets, cooking and baking needs, cleaning supplies, downstairs entertainment area with heaters, etc.. You are minutes from restaurants, pubs, shopping, supermarkets and many outdoor activities. The Sapphire Resort amenities were perfect for our young family from skiiing, tubing, zip lining, indoor pool, arcade and other features (discounted fees for members). Take the time to explore the surrounding areas from ice skating at Highlands Downtown to the Biltmore in Asheville. We cannot wait to plan our next visit to High Whisper! One week was simply not enough time to enjoy everything the NC mountains have to offer.
Very nice cabin, very clean and organized
Great Cabin! Well stocked and perfect for a family trip to the mountains.
We had an awesome time with our family in the mountains! The cabin is well taken care of by the owners and also stocked just like home. The cabin was decorated for Christmas and the atmosphere really added to our family gathering. The owners were easily available by email.
Plenty of room for a family of 10. We would definitely keep this cabin on the list of any future visits to the area.
Fantastic mountain home. All as advertised.
We loved this home. Truely like staying at a family members house; nothing felt like a rental property. It has a remarkable mountain feel. And owner was super responsive and helpful.
Excellent cozy and perfect
Come back every year because we love it!
Well appointed, quality furnishings. Generous amounts of staples, including paper goods and kitchen supplies. Very nice amenities. Only thing lacking is a bathroom on the basement level, but the cabin is so nice, it made up for that!
Gem Mining, Waterfall exploring, whitewater rafting, snow tubing and sking. We have numerous hiking books to explore the many waterfalls in the area. The two largest trout on record in the state of NC were caught in the Horsepasture River near by.
