"THE" Perfect Sapphire Property

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! Great Communication before and during stay. I feel like my family has our very own new destination home in Sapphire! If you are looking for a roomy, comfortable, well-equipped home that is central to hikes, shopping, restaurants and more, then this is it. We missed being able to use the really cool looking fire-pit because of the wildfires that were burning, but we'll do that on our next visit! Stop looking; book this home!

A wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted several families over a long, beautiful fall weekend in Sapphire. The house was the perfect size for our 10 person group with room to spare. It was incredibly easy to check in and out, and we had a blast hiking nearby in Gorges State Park. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great place for large families or groups!

  • 4 of 5

Betsy's Hideaway was a great place for my family to stay while attending a wedding in Cashiers... It was very conveniently located and comfortably held 5 was a short visit, so regrettably we didn't get to sight see. However, the park on site in Burlingame was at least a little preview of the area falls...overall, I had a very pleasant visit and would love to come back for a longer visit

Great for Elderly Parents and Tweens Alike!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, and it is a perfect place for our family. There are five bedrooms and a bonus bedroom downstairs.

The ping-pong and movie room downstairs is where the kids stayed most of the time unless they were playing in the nearby waterfall or roasting smores outside. The main-level bedroom was perfect for my parents who can't get around so easily, and we all enjoyed the spacious screened-in porch. Fantastic location and the house is loaded with a great kitchen, washer-dryer, three bathrooms, etc. Perfect. We'll be back!

Wonderful location for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Betsy's Cabin! There was plenty of room for all of our extended family to stay comfortably. The living spaces were perfect (a comfy family room, huge dining table and great game room in the basement but our favorite by far was the screened porch- the pictures do not do it justice! We hope to come back!

Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was enjoyable. Plenty of room for our group of 10. Owner was very helpful with directions and amenities, quick to respond. Home had all amenities needed, well stocked and comfortable; however, needs a little updating and I believe a little better cleaning is needed (baseboards, cobwebs, dirty sponge in sink, dusty, lights over dining table needs cleaning). Ping Pong table and movie room were added bonuses!

Burlingame, High Hampton, Sapphire National
Car: necessary

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.
