Private with stunning views

When I stumbled onto this cabin after hours of searching online, it seemed head and shoulders above any other I had seen. When I arrived it met and often exceeded my expectations. The view is spectacular, the cabin has a more modern and classy style than the cheesy/plaid style seen in most other mountain rentals (reclaimed wood plus modern fixtures makes the cabin feel rustic yet new somehow), the lot and even neighborhood is so extremely private that we never saw anyone else, the place is loaded with thoughtful amenities from local guides to games to great audio/video equipment (along with tons of CDs and DVDs to enjoy and speakers throughout the house), and the soaking hot tub was a true highlight with a clear line of sight to the amazing view and starry night sky. The cabin, while private, is still minutes from tons of great hikes littered with waterfalls and a few decent restaurants and shops. It truly was a perfect location for our weekend getaway, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: I am so glad you were able to visit and, as it appears, benefit from your stay at Sapphire Heaven. There is great reward for Stacy and I in knowing our efforts are truly appreciated; however, even without our rustic creation this particular spot where the cabin is located would still be on another whole level of special. We were just lucky enough to find it. Without leaving the back porch you can witness a broad spectrum of natural forces from high above the summit to the eastward distant ripple of mountain ridges. Of course, like a photo, words don’t do it justice…but its fun trying.
