About Sally Spingler

I am a native to North Carolina. I am a mother of one and a grandmother of two. I am a graduate of Oglethorpe University in Atlanta GA. I hold a current CPA license in the states of North Carolina and Texas I retired from my career as an international tax accountant to dedicate myself to the management and care of the mountain property. My son Bryan and I co-own the property. We are members of the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce.

Sally Spingler purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Sally Spingler chose Sapphire

I toured many miles of mountain properties. When I met Dave Bauer, developer of The Divide at Bald Rock, he took me on a tour of the community in October 2002 after a fall rain when the waterfall was running hard. The development was in its infant stages and I was able to acquire one of the most private and prestigious lots. This lot has amazing views of the Divide Valley below. Once I saw the community, the amazing views from the lot and all of the Sapphire Valley Master Association amenities, I knew this lot was the ONE !! After holding the property for 11 years, my son 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 blown away when my son told me he wanted to honor me and help me build my dream !! 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. It features a full home theatre system, SONY 4k UHD 75" TV, satellite TV, Playstation and X-box with SONY 7.2 surround sound, The lower level also has an amazing hand crafted cedar bar, hot and cold bar sink, full size refrigerator, leather wrap around sofa, leather sofa with queen fold out sleeper, game table, recliner and a FULL BATHROOM downstairs. The lower level also has a 12x80 covered deck with amazing views.

Sapphire Valley Resort amenities are included. NOMINAL FEE $2 PER PERSON PER DAY OVER AGE 14, MINIMUM 3 DAYS PASS

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin offers complete privacy on 4.2 acres, but you are still very close to all amenities and downtown Cashiers. We took our entertainment and internet environment seriously. The cabin features the latest SONY 4K ultra High Definition televisions. 75" smart 4k in the theater room. 55" smart 4k in the living room with full swivel wall mount. 48" smart 4k in the master bedroom and (2) 40" smart tv's in each of the upstairs bedrooms. High speed internet with WiFi throughout the property. Direct TV satelitte with HD channels. Playstation 4 and Xbox one for the kids (big and small). The cabin has over 2000 square feet of covered porches(1,000 sq ft upper level and 1,000 sq ft lower level). The porches (upper and lower levels) offer amazing panoramic views of the Divide valley below. You can also hear the nearby waterfall and view the waterfall in low foliage seasons. The cabin comes equipped with natural gas for the stove and master bedroom stone fireplace. The cabin is nestled in 4.2 wooded acres of seclusion and privacy. The summer temps rarely reach into the 80's, the fall views are spectacular, the winter low foliage views seem infinite and the springtime air is so refreshing.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us this past weekend. We

had a great time. While we all expected to like it, no one expected the

breath taking views (and being a group of 6 adults, where 3 are terrified

of heights, the view literally took the breath out of a few on Friday).

Everything went very smoothly.

As I mentioned before, my wife and I travel a good bit using VRBO homes.

Yours was not only beautiful but very well appointed. We were very

appreciative and will be in touch again.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

From the amazing view to the luxurious cabin this was the best place we have ever stayed! The owners have thought of everything you may ever need or want here. We had both sets of parents, my husband and I, and our two kids. Everyone was very comfortable and plenty of room to relax. Loved the huge porches. Kitchen very well stocked. Can't wait to return to this gem. Very close to cashiers/highlands for shopping and snow tubing for kids at sapphire ski! Really can't say enough great things. Owners great to deal with and quick responses. Thanks for letting us take part of your mountain home!!!

We did not want to leave. We hiked Whiteside Mountain. We took in the views from The Devils Courtyard. We enjoyed Sunday brunch at the Zookeeper. The butcher at the local grocery cut us a couple thick filets. We enjoyed the gas grill. The back porch views were incredible. We hope to come again to fly fish and visit some of the waterfalls. So much to do, so little time.

Beautiful cabin! Amazing views !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cabin over the New Years weekend. It was truly an amazing home, with lots of space for a big family but also with a cozy feel. I loved having two fireplaces which kept us nice and warm. Loved the rustic furniture and decor.

We experienced some freezing temps while we were there so the roads had iced over, which made the drive up the mountain a little scary and we couldn't enjoy the outdoor porches as much because it was so cold. The views of the mountains and the frost covered trees the next morning looked like a painting or like a snow globe, breathtaking. We tried doing the snow tubing at the ski resort but we were unable to secure a time due to the fact that they were sold out due to it being a holiday weekend. We visited the Ingles supermarket store for all our groceries, very nice store, great selection of food and meats and with a Starbucks inside :) We ate lunch at Manzanilla Mexican restaurant in the same plaza as Ingles, very tasty food and very friendly staff there.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely consider returning.

Owner's Response: Angel and Lorena, Please come again when you can. We are so glad you stayed warm and cozy in the winter weather. There is an attraction to this area of the country during every season, so maybe you can experience the wonderful spring, cool summers or the beautiful fall foliage in the future. Thank you so much for your kind comments. Sally and Bryan

Beautiful mountain home! Long range views beyond fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our Thanksgiving holiday in this well appointed home! Spent every morning on the deck sipping our coffee and tea taking in the view and calm setting, and after dark trying to count the endless stars! Great recreation room downstairs with bar, large screen tv and video games, game table with treasure chest full of games to play. And again awesome views! Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Comfortable and cozy beds! Our family of five adults and 2 dogs created great memories here and taking advantage of the amenities nearby. Owner provided great communication, and went above and beyond to allow us an early entry and late departure time! We truly had a fabulous mini family reunion!

Located in The Divide at Bald Rock GATED COMMUNITY :



Discover our premier North Carolina mountain property in Cashiers. Let our mountain community be your secure sanctuary in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Divide is located adjacent to the Panthertown National Forest and the prestigious Bald Rock community along the Eastern Continental Divide.

Our mountain property presents all the best North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains can offer. Each lot takes advantage of its mountain features, be it bold streams, cascading falls, grand mountain views or the simple beauty of a Blue Ridge mountain wilderness.

All just minutes away from Cashiers and Highlands, North Carolina and fine dining, shopping, golfing, fishing, hiking, and more.

Whether your desire is to obtain a getaway nestled securely in the North Carolina mountains, escape city life or simply to renew yourself, our mountain property will exceed your expectations. Contact us today for more information about mountain property.

Bald Rock shares amenities including an equestrian center with acres of lush pastureland, stables and miles of hiking, biking and riding trails which offer access to multiple waterfalls and a rare highland bog.

Our community features a covered pavilion for family occasions and community celebrations. This spacious, open-air, rustic facility is flanked by two fireplaces and includes a full-service kitchen.

Adjacent to The Divide lays the magnificent Panthertown Valley. Owned by the U.S. Forest Service, this remarkable 6,700-acre preserve nicknamed the "Yosemite of the East" must be experienced to be appreciated. Meandering streams and intricate waterfall systems make Panthertown Valley a haven for horseback riders, hikers, riders, and nature lovers, with access directly from the property.


The mountain area offers exceptional opportunities for the golf enthusiast with

approximately 14 golf courses. Most courses are designed by

world-renowned course designers.

Highlands Country Club course was designed by Donald Ross.

Cullasaja Club course was designed by Arnold Palmer.

Wade Hampton Golf Club course was designed by Tom Fazio.

Mountain Top Golf & Lake Club designed by Tom Fazio.

Sapphire National Golf Club designed by Ron Garl.

The Country Club of Sapphire Valley designed by George C. Cobbs.


The area is home to an endless supply of lakes and rivers. Lake Glenville is known

for being the highest man-made lake on the east coast at an elevation of 3,492 feet. Having more than a dozen species of fish, it offers plenty to challenge the skill of fishermen. It is perfect for boating and has some of the most coveted shoreline in

North Carolina.

In front of glorious Bald Rock Mountain sits 55-acre Fairfield Lake. Experience the

entire lake along its surrounding hiking trail. There is a sandy beach for sunning and

swimming, two docks, a boathouse and a boat rental with good fishing.

Whitewater rafting will oblige the brave of heart. With this exhilarating sport, as well

as for kayaking, the Nantahala River is known to be one of the best in the Blue Ridge

Mountain area. For the more sedate water activist, the passive French Broad River is

a wonderful alternative.

Included in our Cabin rental are access to the Member Benefits of the amazing Sapphire Valley Master Association for a nominal fee.

Sapphire Valley Master Association is a complete four season resort amenities complex tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Golf, tennis, fine dining, snow skiing, boating, fishing, indoor and outdoor pools and numerous other activities make this THE playground for year-round recreational fun.
