About Linda Carlsten

Hello, we are Al & Linda Carlsten living in the Charleston, SC area for over 26 years. We are transplants from the beautiful but cold State of Wisconsin. We have the best of both worlds with the beaches of South Carolina and the Mountains of Western North Carolina.

Linda Carlsten purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Linda Carlsten chose Sapphire

We have vacationed in the Cashiers, NC area for about 10 years until the cabin bug bit us. It is a beautiful place to escape the hot summers of Charleston. It also gave us a place to find a little cold weather and snow in the winter when we get a little homesick for Wisconsin.

After renting in the area with 2 other couples someone always got the bad room. There is no drawing straws for a good bedroom because they are all exceptional in comfort and décor. Each room is unique.

What makes this cabin unique

Our beautiful log cabin with a red tin roof is great for every season even when it rains. We are nestled in the woods at the end of the cul-de sac, the highest point in Whisper Lake with views of Hogback Mountain, Mountain Laurel and flowering Rhododendrons.

Life couldn't be better stargazing, while in the hot tub. Watching a roaring fire in the outside fireplace, drinking a glass of wine makes it complete. Our grand-children love to roast marshmellows and make samores just before going to bed.

We love having our morning coffee on the deck watching the fog roll in over the mountains. The afternoons are a pefect time for a tea party on the loft porch with our three grand-daughters.

My family had a great time at High Whisper. The house was beautiful and immaculate. Unbelievable kitchen with anything you would possibly. The downstairs was so nice for the grandchildren. Another plus was the second refrigerator. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The owners made it very easy for us.

Awesome escape

  • 5 of 5
We had such an amazing time at High Whisper. From the booking to the check out, the owners were gracious and full of information and help. We had two small children and loved that the porch was closed off to prevent them from getting off. Also there was a porta crib so we didn't need to bring one. We used the Sapphire Amenities to mini golf and to rent a boat to go around the lake. The house was beautiful and had plenty of room for us. We even entertained local family for dinner. We just loved it.

Beautiful Relaxing Atmosphere with Plenty To Do

  • 5 of 5
HIGH WHISPER was such a great place for my wife and I to stay on our honeymoon. The cabin was so remote, but within 15 minutes we were able to drive to tons of great hikes around Cashiers and Highlands. The views from the cabin were amazing and it was so nice to enjoy them from the comfort of the hammock or the warmth of the hot tub. We really enjoyed the air hockey table and the pool table as well. The whole trip was just fantastic. To add to how amazing this place is the owners, the Carlstens, were such a pleasure to deal with. My wife and I will definitely be coming back.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect spot. The house is comfortable, clean and has everything a visitor could ever need. The owners were great to help with details, directions and helped provide ideas about the areas activities. Our group enjoyed playing air hockey, sitting by the outdoor fire, and star watching from the deck. I can not say enough....the house exceeded our expectations. The pictures are spot on. The owners went above and beyond to make the stay wonderful.

High Whisper Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I even begin...The drive to the cabin was nothing short of perfect and then once you arrive it is hard to leave. High Whisper was absolutely perfect in every way possible, to the dual fireplaces, large kitchen, large game room, hot tub, spacious and perfectly decorated interiors, I could go on and on. We were a group of eight, four couples, and had just the perfect time. We are already looking to go back in the fall. Do NOT pass up this cabin! It is worth every penny and drive. We cannot wait to visit again and thank you to the fantastic owners!!

Picture Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this home. We had a mini family reunion, just with our four grown children, and can honestly say that no detail has been spared in this beautifully furnished luxury cabin. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and air hockey table as well as the BBQ on a daily basis.
The floor plan is just perfect! The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The home is equipped with books and movies for all ages, plenty of wood for the fireplace and detailed instructions to facilitate navigating around the home. The photos represent the home to perfection! We couldn't have chosen a better place! We recommend it very highly!!!
