About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

Whisper Lake Cabin is a beautiful 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom mountain house/cabin with a gas log fireplace, high ceilings and timber beams and large windows that bring lots of light into the cabin. The great room, dining room and kitchen are all connected and open and easily accessible to the covered back porch. The cabin sleeps up to 10 guests, and is perfect for larger families, friends, or couples traveling together.

Whisper Lake Cabin is part of the Sapphire Valley Resort Master Association and is perfect for guys or girls weekends, couples and families. The covered back porch is a great place to have a cup of coffee in the morning or a dinner for 4 at night. After dinner the fire pit area is a great place to hang out and tell stories under the stars. There are 80 acres of private land behind the house, that give lots of privacy while you are on the porch, or in the backyard area at the fire pit.

The backyard is fenced with a locust pole and 2" mesh wire fencing system approved by the HOA, that is not escape proof, by any means for your dog, but will provide a deterrance for an escape into the woods. The back porch also features a lockable gate and is a great place to secure a pet outside as there are 2 covered porch areas for protection.

Though it’s easy to get lost in all of the delights of the cabin, this property provides the perfect location for outdoor activities in the area. Summer is ideal for hiking, waterfalls, and golf or tennis. The Sapphire Valley Resort is only 4 miles away and gives you access to ski slopes, indoor and outdoor pools, exercise equipment, miniature golf, and arcade games! If you’re craving water sports, Lake Fairfield is 3 miles away with paddleboat and canoe rentals available through the Sapphire Resort. There are lots of great restaurants in the area and Cashiers is 6 miles away and Highlands is 17 miles away. With so much to do at this beautiful cabin and the surrounding area, you’ll be sure to have a memorable stay at this vacation rental cabin! All the roads to the house including the driveway are paved, and 4WD is NOT required.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Originally from NYC and now residing in Florida, our family was looking for a mountain getaway and some skiing. This location was perfect. The cabin is gorgeous, and i would definitely recommend. Brian is great and a pleasure to deal with.

Sapphire Valley Ski Resort is only minutes away. We had a great time, and plan to return!

Loved Every Minute!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our son and two of our grandsons. It's beautiful with lots of room and privacy. The furniture is not only gorgeous, but very comfortable. All of the appliances, utensils, dishes and glasses were top quality. We loved the views, fire pit, and jetted tub. The laundry room allowed us to wash our clothes before heading home. It's very convenient to the Sapphire Valley Community Center and Ski Resort and Highlands Ice Skating Rink, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to return in the near future. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Our trip was perfect. The cabin was very well decorated with all of the amenities we needed. The proximity to restaurants, shopping and activities was great. We would definitely stay at this property again. Brian was a terrific person to deal with and we cannot think of anything we would change. We definitely recommend this property!

Great family resort house in SV.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our week stay in the Whisper Lake cabin. Everything was as described. We liked the open concept and living space that our other rentals have lacked. Kitchen was nicely stocked and the washer / dryer were located right off the kitchen. The home was close to Fairfield lake and the SV clubhouse where we could boat and swim.

Property is located about 6-8 houses away from the lake and is not on the lake. We are 10 minutes or 6 miles east of the crossroads at Cashiers, and about 20-25 minutes from Highlands, and 20-25 minutes from Lake Glenville. Property is only 1 mile off of Rt 64 with easy access to everything. Property is close to Whitewater Falls and Gorges State Park.

Property is used as the Owner's Second Home, and has nicer bedding, linens, finishes, appliances, and furniture than you would find in a typical rental home.
