Bryan Shinn purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Bryan Shinn chose Sapphire
My mom previewed many miles of mountain properties. In October 2002, Dave Bauer, developer of The Divide at Bald Rock, took her on a tour of the community after a fall rain when the waterfall was running hard. The development was in its infant stages and she acquired what Dave said was "his most private and prestigious lot." This lot has amazing views of the Divide Valley below. Once she saw the community, the amazing views from the lot and all of the Sapphire Valley Master Association amenities, she knew this lot was the ONE! Mom held the vacant land for 11 years. Mom and I combined resources to build this amazing cabin. The cabin was completed in July of 2016. It truly is an amazing property. I was so happy to help Mom to build her dream! In November 2019, I became sole owner of the property. The cabin sleeps 6-8 people very comfortably with plenty of room for portable sleepers for children. It has two levels. Upstairs is the main living area with cathedral ceilings, amazing mountain views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen, laundry room, living room and dining area, stone over sized wood burning fireplace in living room and stone gas log fireplace in the master bedroom. The cabin has a 12x80 covered porch on the upper and lower levels. Access to the deck from the living area, master bedroom and bedroom 2. All of the access rooms also feature amazing panoramic mountain valley views. The lower level is the recreation room.

CASHIERS LOG CABIN
An absolutely beautiful cabin in the most peaceful setting imaginable!
In my quest to find a cabin to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, I found this beautiful cabin in the most peaceful setting imaginable. In 1994 (25 years ago), my husband and I spent our honeymoon at a bed & breakfast in the same general area. The bed & breakfast still exists, however, it no longer opens in the winter months. When I found this VRBO cabin, I thought it would be the perfect place to celebrate our 25th anniversary, as it in near our honeymoon destination from 25 years ago. This cabin is so beautiful. The bear decor is precious, the view is breathtaking, and the location is secluded, yet convenient to nearby destinations. The morning sunrise coming across the mountains as you soak in the view from the back deck is absolutely stunning. The highlight of our stay was our short commute to view Whitewater Falls. We captured a photo of us together in the same location where we stood in 1994. Our revisit to the falls, and the opportunity to take a photo in the same place in 2019 created a lifelong memory. We look forward to returning to this cabin in the near future. It is well appointed, spacious, comfortable, very clean, and a picture of serenity. The Bible verse (Psalm 46:10) captivates our feeling during the stay..... "Be Still and Know" This cabin allows one to pause, rest, and reflect in the beauty of nature, knowing that He provides our every need.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!! We are so happy to read this review. We appreciate your kind words. We hope you will come stay again for your 26th Anniversary and anytime you like. Thank you and Happy New Year !!!
