About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with sleeping porch. Short walk to lake!

Our Hilltop Villa is a relaxing, beautiful and comfortable place to call your home away from home while vacationing in one of the country's most pristine locations without paying outrageous prices. We are perfectly located at 3600 ft elevation in the Smoky Mountains, 2 miles east of Cashiers, 12 miles east of Highlands, and just 2 1/2 hrs. from Atlanta.

You will find everything you need to enjoy your stay including wireless internet, 3 TV's (Large flat screen TV with Netflix), DVD/VCR player with video library, wood burning fireplace, deck which includes a grill for cooking out! Pets are welcome! 2 dogs max please.

A beautifully furnished great room with large comfy leather sofa, loveseat and recliner, and 55” flat screen smart tv along with nice size kitchen and dining room for 6 completes the upstairs. Downstairs includes the master bedroom with king size bed, nightstand, desk with chair and flat screen tv. The master bath adjoins the bedroom with separate large vanity. The guest bedroom has full bed and nightstand with dresser and tv. Both baths have tile floors and showers as well as large mirrors and ceiling heaters. All towels and linens are provided. Just recently we have replaced all carpet downstairs with wood vinyl plank.

Off the back of the master and guest bedroom you will find our cozy enclosed sleeping porch with day bed and trundle along with TV armoir with dvd/vhs player.

Also downstairs is our laundry closet with stackable washer and dryer.

A large covered porch for outdoor relaxation is located off the living room on the upstairs level including views of the mountains. We find it very peaceful to sit out here and rock and feel the cool mountain air. A gas grill is provided here as well.

Our home is a short walk to Fairfield Lake which in the summer has canoe, kayaks and other fun boats to rent.

This area boasts numerous golf courses, fine dining restaurants, locally owned bistros, shops, grocery (Ingles) and

gorgeous waterfalls as well as many other attractions.

About Frances Sheffield (Chancey)

Our family is from Tallahassee, FL. We have been vacationing in Sapphire and nearby areas for over 40 years. There is no place like it. We purchased this home to continue to enjoy the area with our family and to offer as a retreat to others.

Frances Sheffield (Chancey) purchased this condo in 2012

Why Frances Sheffield (Chancey) chose Sapphire

We found Hilltop to be so convenient to all the wonderful areas around the smoky mountains and close enough to walk to Lake Fairfield. My grandparents owned a condo here in the 80's when the old Fairfield Inn was here. I also went to Camp Merrie-Woode which borders the lake and is a short walk from our condo. So many wonderful memories here!

What makes this condo unique

We just love this cozy condo! Its nice and quiet and so comfortable to stay in. There are hardwood floors on the first floor and we have a great big stone wood burning fireplace that keeps us nice and toasty in the winters. We have recently updated the downstairs with wood vinyl plank and new tile in baths. We have tastefully decorated with big cushy leather sofas and a comfy recliner. There is a 55' flat screen smart tv in the living room/ We love laying around and watching movies or sitting on the back porch and feeling the cool mountain breeze. Our kitchen is the perfect size for cooking family meals. The bedrooms downstairs are tucked away and peaceful with a large bonus sun / sleeping porch off the back. All beds are super comfy and we sleep so good! I hope you enjoy this place as much as we do. We never want to leave!

Comfortably affordable

Not only was the location beautiful, but our unit was very affordable, accommodating, and cozy. The weather wasn’t the best, but it didn’t even matter. We loved our visit and hope to return someday soon.

Property has seen better days

  • 1 of 5

Location of the condo is good, however it is run down. Poor lighting, dull kitchen knives, outdated everything. Poor communication from the owner; I never received check-in information so attempted to use what is stated on VRBO however that too is outdated. I did receive an email back with the access code but then sent two additional emails that went unanswered.

Owner's Response: I am sorry our home did not meet your expectations. We are updating all items in need. I apologize for not getting back to you promptly. Hopefully the refund sufficed. Take care, Chancey

We really enjoyed our stay at the "Cozy Condo in Sapphire". We were within 10 minutes of our relatives which made it very easy to go back and forth. Love Cashiers/Sapphire area and have been coming to the area since 2004. Thank you for the use of your home away from home.
