Review of our stay in Sapphire, NC
We had a wonderful time at this property. We rented the home to enjoy a camp celebration and my entire family was able to enjoy the long weekend. The owners were most helpful and communication with them was very smooth. We would return to the property in the future.
Perfect House in the Woods!
Thoroughly enjoyed this house. Well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, and lots of room! The screen porch is huge and a wonderful place to enjoy meals! We also enjoyed the theater room for watching our favorite series! Convenient to enjoying all of our planned outdoor activities,!
Excellent home for a vacation!
The home we rented was very nice! The outdoor screened in porch was wonderful to use every morning while enjoying a cup of coffee. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice. Our family enjoyed the entertainment room in the basement as well as the ping pong table. There were lots of matches between family members. The area of the house isn't too far off of the main street which made it quick to get places but was also very quiet with the surrounding woods. The homeowners were very nice to work with for renting their house.
Mountain hideaway review
We loved our time in North Carolina. Our place in Burlingham, Saphire was good. The master bedroom bed was very good and we loved going out on the deck. The Theater room was extraordinaire. Only mild criticism is the house is a little dark even with all or most of the lights on. Also their property is not eligible for the Saphire amenity pass which allows one to use many recreational activities and also provides discounts.
The only issue was there were no private bathrooms on the second floor. Fishing was outstanding!
Great rental, extremely helpful owners, and spectacular location!
We took a long weekend for an extended family getaway and had a great time.
We chose this location for a vacation home because of it's proximity to so many out door activities. Whitewater Falls (the highest east of the Rockies), Rainbow Falls at Gorges National park, And Panthertown Valley which is often call the 'Yosemite of the East' are all very close. We also never miss an opportunity to hike Whiteside Mountain located between Cashiers and Highlands. Highland Hiker in Cashiers has maps and guides for hikes available.
