About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14)

A wonderful house for a couple, or for a small or large group. The view is inspiring, and it is a great place to relax by the fireplace or rock on the porches.

The living area holds a dining table and a poker table (which converted to a dining table allows.up to 14 persons to share a seated dinner). Wireless internet and a land-line phone with unlimited USA calling is available for those who blend vacation and work!

The porch railings are wide enough for 'view-dining' while standing on the porch. The Chefs in your family will love kitchen with 2 microwaves, two sinks, 2 dishwashers, and both a gas and a charcoal grill.

The upstairs bedrooms each have a vanity with sink in the room, and share a bath. Guests are comforted by a powder room at the front entry. Downstairs, the 'Library' bedroom has a bath en-suite, and two additional bedrooms share the second downstairs bath. There is another den downstairs, with TV and a mountain view from the terrace. Although not handicap outfitted, the one step entry and same level bedrooms and living space are perfect for the guest with slightly impaired mobility.

Access cards to enjoy the amenities of the Sapphire Valley Community Association can be purchased at the Community Center for $2/adult/day. Kids are free!

There is plenty of paved parking for guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to let you and Wade know how much we enjoyed our trip to the mountains. What a great house. Kids had a blast tubing. We visited a few of the waterfalls. Weather was perfect for hiking.

Another great week at Sky High. Took in local markets, craft fair in Cashiers, hiking, waterfalls, canoeing on the lake, mini-golf tournament, croquette, relaxing on the deck, sunrises, sunsets, swimming in the lake, swimming in the pools, kayaking..... and ended every day on the deck chatting and relaxing with great friends. Love Sky High. What a great get-away! Thank you!!!

Awesome May getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation for our family!!! The house is wonderful - clean, stocked with every imaginable convenience, beautiful views, lovely property, incredible amenities available, so clean, huge home with lots of room to enjoy... I could go on forever! The owners are wonderful people and so responsive to our questions! Tons of hiking. Close to Cashiers and Highlands and all the wonderful shops. Grocery store is only a few minutes from the house. Loads of great hikes in the neighborhood or just a short drive away. I can't say enough. Love being there. It is my families 'happy place'! Thank you! Thank you!

My favorite place

  • 5 of 5

Skyhigh is my haven! We have visited every year since 2002. The views are beautiful. I can feel the stress leave my body the moment I step onto the back porch.

The area has so much for families to do: hiking, rafting, skiing, tubing, canoeing, swimming, golf, festivals, shopping… it’s easy to fill up a day! Even if it rains, we sit on the porch, listen to the water on the leaves of the trees, and play games (in the closet). Great family time!

I love that the house is so clean and large. We can go with several families and everyone has their own beautiful room and bath.

The kitchen is well appointed and fun to cook in… Who doesn’t love the smell of cookies baking mixed with the clean mountain air!

Thanks for wonderful Skyhigh memories!!!

Owner's Response: Patti and family sent pictures of their most recent stay to share in our photo gallery. What fun they had making a gingerbread train and snow-tubing. Our Sapphire Resort tube (pronounced 2-B) course operates year-round; only one of three in the country! We love our family, friends, and their friends and families to enjoy SkyHigh hospitality! Kindest Regards, Elisabeth
