Why Karen Sweatlock chose Sapphire
Love to enjoy the fresh and cool mountain air, many breathtaking views of waterfalls and all that nature has to offer plus so many amenities to enjoy with family and friends in the mountains.

Karen is a super host. Super responsive, friendly, and helpful. My family has rented many vacation homes over the years but this was by far the best experience. The home was better than described with all new appliances and a beautiful open split floor plan. The resort has everything for the family. A large gym, indoor and outdoor pools, a lake with fishing and boat and SUP board rentals, playground , nature trail, running track, recreation room, restaurants, golf, tennis, and more. There are tons of community events and super affordable excursions. The home is minutes from amazing waterfalls, some that have a minimal hike and others where the hike could be considered strenuous. We swam in two different waterfalls during our trip. After a week we still hadn't done everything we wanted to. We will definitely go back. This was the perfect relaxing vacation my family needed. I already miss the cool mountain air. Thanks for everything Karen. You're awesome!
Escape from the summer heat and humidity.
We enjoyed our stay in Sapphire and it was exactly as we desired. The weather was much cooler and we were very secluded but Cashiers and Highlands were easily available. There was plenty of room for our children and grandchildren to visit us and it was good to have access to the facilities for the children to play. Overall, we enjoyed our stay especially the solitude to study and are considering coming back.
This property was fine and the location was good, but the person renting the property insisted that we should allow her to show someone else through the property on a daily basis with telephone contacts (texts and later both texts and calls on a daily basis starting at 8:00 AM on our first day of an 8 day vacation stay. Then she chastised us again on the phone for leaving trash in the trash can when we left even though all posted check out instructions said to do this if it was not a trash pickup day because of bears. She said we should have sent her pictures of our vacation, and refused to just allow us peace and privacy to enjoy our brief stay.
The only inquiry that we asked is if a disabled vet could access the property for a future rental to be sure they could handle the front stairway. This is a very unusual request and felt it was a special circumstance with a disabled person. We wanted to make certain that the current guest would not be surprised by a visitor to the property and asked for permission. This guest never responded so we did not allow any visitors. The cleaning crew indicated that the house required extra cleaning after this guest left. The other reviews of the home and others' positive experiences speak for themselves. We value our guests and their privacy.
