About Cathy White

I have always loved the Mountains of Sapphire Valley/Cashiers. I grew up spending my summers here, as we looked for escape from the South Florida heat. I am so excited to now have a home here and am thrilled to be able to share it with you through VRBO. Our hope is that you will come and spend time here, enjoying the comforts of our home, while making your own wonderful memories of time spent here in this mountain paradise!

Cathy White purchased this townhome in 2016

Guestbook comments from the owner


We LOVED your condo! I have been working so much that I didn’t have time to respond to review until tonight. Now they say it’s too late! Boo! Your personal touches made the condo very special, plus you had everything I needed to cook a complete Thanksgiving dinner. The beds were so cozy, and it was really quiet for a perfect night’s sleep. The round table was conducive for long family dinners. Thanks for everything!

Oh that view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cathy & Bill's Bear's Nest was just wonderful. It was the perfect place to disconnect from everyday life and enjoy the beauty of nature. This is our 3rd trip in as many years to Sapphire and the entire family agreed that this was the best place we've stayed. The house came fully stocked with those everyday essentials that are such a pain to purchase for the week (eg, paper supplies, soaps of all kinds, and basic spices). It was also immaculate! For a nominal fee, we had full use of the Sapphire Resort amenities, just as we had with our time share. And, we were able to bring our dog, Beau, who had a blast walking the lake trail, wading in the lake, and, of course, being with the kids. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Amazing view, great location, wonderful hospitality!!

  • 5 of 5

The Bear’s Nest helped make for a spectacular vacation for our family of 5. We loved the amazing view of Fairfield Lake and Bald Mountain from the decks!!! It was very easy to walk down to Fairfield Lake and we took the Lake Trail all the way around and also hiked up Bald Mountain. Bear’s Nest has everything you need to feel at much better than the sterile timeshare condo we’ve used before in Sapphire. The Keurig and coffee pods in the kitchen were much appreciated. The guest bedroom with 3 beds was perfect for our 3 boys and they loved the huge tub in the guest bath. It rained several days we were there but there was still lots to do with the Sapphire amenities and even in the condo (cable, WiFi, board games and books). We definitely are looking forward to staying here again.

Great view and perfect location

Enjoyed our recent stay at Bear’s Nest. We had some issues initially that the owner and property manager addressed immediately. They cared about their guests and did everything to ensure a comfortable stay.

We enjoyed our short weekend there.

The condo was great. It had all the comforts of home. It was clean , plenty of room , very welcoming , awesome view and good location.

They left a bottled water at each nightstand which was a nice touch. They also had coffee, snacks and firewood.

Highly recommend it.
