Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My name is Joy Drewry. My husband and I vacationed in this area of the Smokys with our three children many years ago. As childhood sweethearts we always enjoyed the great outdoors together. In later years we delighted in teaching our children and grandchildren to love and appreciate nature. Though this area has grown, we chose to build our cottage here because it has remained a quiet place with an abundance of amenities and great restaurants, yet unlike the 'touritsty' crowded places with which you may be familiar.

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire, NC, USA:
We built our log cottage to accomodate families and our seven grandchildren (though not all at one time!). The wrap around porch may be gated to allow younger children freedom to play outside--even during summer showers. It is my favorite place to read a good book or visit with friends while soaking in the absolute quiet, except for the birds or occasional wild turkey or deer that wander through our yard. I love the charm of rustic interiors contrasted with functional antiques, yet family-friendly. You will enjoy the privacy of two wooded acres AND the security of nearby neighbors. We are located 1 to 3 miles from all Sapphire Valley Resort amenities, 4 miles from a great supermarket, and 5 miles from the charming village of Cashiers (pronounced 'cash-ers').

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cool mountain air affords relief from our hot Florida summers. We love sleeping under quilts with windows opened many summer nights, though there are ceiling fans and AC readily available. Winters are mostly mild and sunny with few closed days on the golf courses. Skiing and tubing with both natural and man-made snow are available during the colder months. Spring and fall are two of our favorite seasons in the mountains. Mountain laurel and rhododendron cover the landscape in spring and the vibrant fall foliage is breathtaking--and all may be viewed from our windows or porches. Bring a good book and your clubs, rods, and hiking boots. Or, for the shoppers, anticipate great antiquing, craft, art, consignment, auctions, and assorted unique shops in Cashiers and Highlands (10 miles away). Tubing on Deep Creek in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, sliding down Cashier's famous Sliding Rock into a clear pool of cool water, or taking a paddle boat or canoe onto Fairfield Lake will provide fun for the entire family. I will happily provide tips on nearby events, outings, and favorite restaurants our friends and family enjoy. Welcome!
