About David Bennett
I live in Florida and enjoy traveling and spending time in the mountains enjoying nature and the cooler temperatures in Western North Carolina. The Sapphire/Cashiers/Highlands area is filled with great hiking and has numerous waterfalls that will take your breath away.
David Bennett purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why David Bennett chose Sapphire
I first visited the Sapphire Valley years ago while visiting my parents in Asheville and knew that I wanted a little getaway of my own. I found this house and knew it would be a wonderful place to spend a few week each year relaxing.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Sapphire/Cashiers/Highlands area is unique in its beauty, peace and so many outdoor activities to enjoy. The great restaurants, art galleries and shopping are the added bonus for those who like to spend a little time indoors.

Perfectly Enjoyable Stay!
The pictures do not do this place justice! If you're looking for a vacation in the mountains with upscale furnishings and decor, this is the place to be! We were pleasantly surprised by how shady and cool the home remained even on the sunniest days. While A/C worked great, some days we enjoyed the fresh breezes and ceiling fans, despite it being the middle of summer! Like other guests, we especially enjoyed sitting on the back deck and listening to the babbling brook on both ideal and rainy days. No bear encounters for us, but lots of birds and wildlife to enjoy. The mattresses on the beds were awesome! We loved cooking and preparing many of our own meals and all the necessary tools and cookware were all there, and good quality I might add. The steep downhill driveway was a bit scary at first, but the setting of the house at this level is ideal for privacy. After having a place of our own in the area for over 20 years, it was nice to vacation at a home that was much more modern than ours, but yet still perfectly balanced with the natural environment of the forest. Owner returned deposit promptly after leaving and was quick to address a minor concern. Wireless internet worked great with multiple devices and it was nice to have a printer on-site as well. The wireless bluetooth speaker was also appreciated so we could play music from our own devices in the house. This place has ALL the comforts of home and so many of the extras you'd never get at a hotel. Cashiers, Highlands, Brevard and Asheville all make great day-trip destinations. Don't hesitate to stay here. We look forward to being able to return at some point ourselves! Thank you David!
Thank you Christina!
Beautiful and Well Equipped
We loved this mountain house - what a fabulous location and it was lacking nothing! David was so generous and helpful with all the information he shared about the area. Everything was so well laid out and clear - it made renting the house so easy! Everyone should take a lesson from David on how to run a rental cottage. The beds were so comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed - everything felt new and clean. My favorite part was enjoying coffee on the back porch and listening to the sounds of the creek! I only wish we could have stayed longer. Can't wait to plan our next trip to Sapphire to stay in this awesome cottage!
Thank you Hester!
Great place for relaxing to the sounds of the brook.
Place was clean and decorated nicely. Felt like being at home.
Rob, Thank you for the review. I so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Beautifully decorated. Not your typical cabin/cottage.
Owner takes a great deal of pride in this property. Kitchen has everything you need and then some! High end cookware. Beds extremely comfortable. Sheets luxurious. Sitting on back deck you can hear the creek flowing. We saw a mama bear and her 3 Cubs on the property 3 times. Golf and shopping nearby. Turned the a/c off when we arrived. Never needed. Highly recommend.
Thank you Judy! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.
We just returned from a week's stay at David's fabulous Sapphire cabin. The cabin is located in a private setting but close to all of the area attractions. We enjoyed so many of the activities of Western NC but our favorite may be sitting on the porch listening to the creek! The cabin is fully equipped and very comfortable. We are already looking forward to our next stay.
Thank you Brenda
