  • Beautiful Mountain Home - 4th of July Summer Vacation

    "My family of four recently stayed at High Whisper for one week during 4th of July along with another family of 5 who joined us for 3 nights from Raleigh ... just as the reviews had mentioned ...we were not disappointed. This was our second summer booking a home near Cashiers area ... last year, our town home at Trillium was beautiful but on the smaller side, so we were looking for something with a bit more elbow room and direct mountain views outside our back porch and windows. We decided to try Sapphire Valley this year and based on all the reviews I was drawn to High Whisper. Now, being a South Florida girl, I was particularly interested in soaking in a hot tub while relaxing under the stars and enjoying the crisp mountain air and views. High Whisper made this a reality for me! Firstly, as we arrived to the home for our 4th of July week celebration, we were met with a special delivery box at the door step from the owner Linda, and to our surprise, the box was filled with 2 American flags on sticks, a 'Freedom" decorative pillow and two red/white/blue kitchen hand towels. It was completely unexpected and so thoughtful...we were so impressed. Everything you've heard in the reviews is all true - the house has everything you would ever need for a vacation getaway ... kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could ever need, you just buy groceries. Beds are super comfy and each space is just perfect. We spent a lot of our time in the Kitchen and out back on the porch in the hot tub to be honest. For our kids (ages 8 and 6), the downstairs game room complete with pool table, air hockey and DVDs was a hit also. I think my kids watched Harry Potter 2-3 times that week. lol. In my opinion, there aren't enough pictures of the mountain views ... I was a little unsure what our views would be like, but they are beautiful especially from the backyard porch so no worries. Linda even provides an App for each renter to download prior to their trip and it literally answers every question you could ever have about the house and surrounding area. We didn't need to call the owner once during our trip! The only regret I have is that we were so busy river rafting the Nantahala, hiking and visiting local waterfalls/rivers, that we ran out of time to enjoy the nearby lake down the road and the canoe/kayaks that come with the rental. Next year for sure!! Can't thank Linda enough for her hospitality and kindness. You won't be disappointed!!!"

  • Highly Recommended

    "'Escape to Nature and Peace' is located in a special area of the North Carolina mountains for it's beauty and comfortable weather conditions. The mountains, waterfalls and lakes in this area are great for activities like boating, hiking, and swimming. The nearby towns of Cashiers and Highlands are great for shopping and restaurants. The Sapphire Valley Resort is very close to the 'Escape to Nature and Peace' vacation rental and provides numerous activities for adults and kids to enjoy. I'm writing this review to highly recommend the' Escape to Nature and Peace' rental for a vacation or just a get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thank you Kristin and Pat for sharing your home with us so we could enjoy our time in Sapphire Valley. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our time at the cabin with the mountain views, well stocked kitchen and beautiful decor in every room. Rodney and Beth Downey"

  • Wonderful

    "Our family spent two weeks at this cabin over Christmas and New Years and loved every minute of it! It was exactly as the pictures portrayed, a rustic but upscale retreat. The upstairs was very spacious and the master bedroom and closet were outstanding, plenty of room to tuck everything away so you didn't have to live out of suitcases. The indoor fireplace was used every night and when we ran out of wood, the owner arranged to have more delivered. Unfortunately it rained most of the days we were there so we were not able to use the outdoor fireplace but once or twice, but it was magnificent. The covered porch was ideal for staying dry while watching and listening to the rain. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens. We made great use of the Sapphire Resort's indoor pool, which was just a very nominal fee. We not only enjoyed the cabin but the area as well. We had a magical holiday and would definitely return!"

  • Exceptional!

    "The pictures, simply, do not do the Memory Mountain Lodge justice. It is beautiful! Relaxing. Tastefully decorated. And incredibly roomy. Lots of thought went into the decorating and care of guests. Our crew stayed between the back porch (Ring & Hook game Championships), the campfire pit, and playing in the stream. We had 12 people present, at times, and there was plenty of room for all. Picturesque. Refreshing. Wonderful homeowners to work with! Would love to make another trip here in the near future!"
