About Frances Sheffield (Chancey)

Our family is from Tallahassee, FL. We have been vacationing in Sapphire and nearby areas for over 30 years. There is no place like it. We purchased this home to continue to enjoy the area with our family and to offer as a retreat to others.

Frances Sheffield (Chancey) purchased this condo in 2012

Why Frances Sheffield (Chancey) chose Smoky Mountains

We found Hilltop to be so convenient to all the wonderful areas around the smoky mountains and close enough to walk to Lake Fairfield. My grandparents owned a condo here in the 80's when the old Fairfield Inn was here. I also went to Camp Merrie-Woode which borders the lake and is a short walk from our condo. So many wonderful memories here!

What makes this condo unique

We just love this cozy condo! Its nice and quiet and so comfortable to stay in. The hardwood floors on the first floor are brand new and we have a great big stone wood burning fireplace that keeps us nice and toasty in the winters.we have recently updated the downstairs with wood vinyl plank and new tile in baths. We have tastefully decorated with big cushy leather sofas and a comfy recliner. We also splurged and got a 55' flat screen smart tv with access to all Netflix movies and shows. We love laying around and watching movies or sitting on the back deck and rocking and listening to the mountain breezes. Our kitchen is the perfect size for cooking family meals. The bedrooms downstairs are tucked away and peaceful with a large bonus sun / sleeping porch off the back. All beds are super comfy and we sleep so good! I hope you enjoy this place as much as we do. We never want to leave!

A wonderful place to stay and make some memories

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at the cozy condo and had a wonderful time! The condo itself is as pictured and has a great atmosphere to it. With all of the modern conveniences and comforts it was a very pleasurable stay. We enjoyed our time inside the condo as well as outside. It's just a short walk down the hill to the lake which is quite beautiful and has a trail that goes around it. It's located perfectly for taking trips to places to hike and see numerous waterfalls. We went in the fall as the leaves were changing and it was very beautiful!

It was a great and memorable vacation.

Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was very clean and it had everything that we needed. We enjoyed walking around Fairfield Lake and visiting Dry Falls. Our favorite activity was just relaxing in the condo and not having to do anything unless we wanted to. It was a very relaxing weekend. Three nights was not enough time!
