Mountaintop Sanctuary is located in Sapphire, North Carolina which is 7 miles from Cashiers, NC and 20 miles from Highlands, NC. We love Sapphire because of the amenities including boating and swimming at Lake Fairfield;golf and tennis at Sapphire Country Club;hiking in Panthertown Valley (which is literally out our front door);gem mining;visiting the many waterfalls n the area;shopping in Cashiers;skiing at Sapphire Valley in the winter;relaxing on our deck next to the outdoor fireplace; and gazing at the stars from our outdoor hot tub are a few of the many things we love to do in the area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live on the coast of Florida but love spending time in the North Carolina mountains. There is a peace we enjoy here more than anywhere else. We have raised our 4 children coming here for vacations and they love coming back as adults, just to relax and enjoy their families.

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire, NC, USA:
This is a special place! The air is fresh and cool, and the busyness of life slips away so that you can relax and experience peace, quiet, and special times with those you love.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This home is unique in that is is a log home with all the creature comforts and rustic/elegant decor you would want to find in a beautiful mountain home. Our favorite part of the home is the deck with an outdoor wood-burning fireplace, living area, dining area, and hot tub. We spent most of our time here and the views will take your breath away. We love the altitude at 4500 ft. as it is always cool, yet the house stays warm as it faces southeast and most often has the sun shining on it throughout the day. The views of Lake Keowee and Lake Hartwell (80 miles away) are lovely against the long range mountain views. At night, you will feel like you are on top of the world with the city lights of Clemson and Greenville, SC shining brightly. There is no place we would rather be!
