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.

Nice and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was quiet and peaceful, exactly what I was looking for. The house was very clean and had everything you would need in the kitchen and bathrooms. I enjoyed walking in the neighborhood as well. The creek view from the porch was beautiful. I would definitely stay here again.

Thomases stay on Hogback Creek

  • 5 of 5

The unit was great, fully equipped, clean, and professionally decorated - everything was what it was presented to be and more. We were a day late getting to the unit while we made preparations for Hurricane Irma at our home in Florida. David Bennett was kind enough to extend our stay one day. Of course there was no escaping Irma. We had several days of bad weather on the mountain and one day without power, but it couldn't be helped. If we were to return to this area we would certainly want to stay here again.

Lovely cabin in hilly, leafy NC mountains

  • 5 of 5

This creek-side cabin is perfectly situated among the hills of Sapphire, NC. We stayed there for a week to escape the Florida heat, and the temperature was perfect. The cabin has a huge back porch that overlooks the creek, and sitting there on rocking chairs, listening to the water and birds, was heaven. The cabin is in a great location for runners and walkers The hills, while steep, are paved, manageable, and the cool temps make for perfect exercise. The house is well-built and tastefully decorated. There was also starter coffee and bottled water waiting for us.

The owner was very responsive and helpful with all of our questions. There is a lot of lighting,

and he helped us manage that. The exterior security lighting is great for arriving or departing at night, but it was a little much for us when we wanted it dark for sleeping--easily solved with timely help from the owner.
