Description of the Sapphire vacation townhouse rental
. Connect with nature in this spacious chalet with soaring ceiings and big windows that bring the outside in. Lots of natural sunlight means you don't have to keep the lights on during the day as you do in many other mountain condos. If you are looking for a prime location right on the resort, where you can park your car and walk to everything, then this is the place.

It is nestled among the pines and mountain laurel with a cottage garden and a path of wildflowers leading you to the door in the summer. Separate bedroom suites for maximum privacy. Master bedroom has a king bed, full bath, window seat and new sliding glass door to oversized deck. Second bedroom has 2 full-size beds, its own full bath, also opens the back deck overlooking the woods and Redbird Golf Course. It includes a 33' flat screen TV and DVD player. Luxury Pottery Barn bed linens for your comfort.

Additional full bath off the living room. Dining room, with a 6 1/2 ft. table, is large enough for family gatherings. The dining room opens to an expanded, private deck with grillperfect for entertaining. The deck has stairs leading down to a moss covered yard and has a lockable gate for security.
A 30 inch flat screen TV, DVD player, movies, games and books are available in the Great Room for indoor entertainment. A set of golf clubs is tucked away in the guest bedroom closet for those who would like to try their game. A fully equipped kitchen features all new appliances and the electric range has a smooth surface cooktop. Many condiments are stocked in the kitchen and the pantry even includes a first aid kit. The home is elegantly decorated with original art.

Everything is on one level so there's no climbing up and down stairs. You can bring the bikes since the street is level and not open to through traffic. Enjoy the quiet and tranquility with all amenities within walking distance. In winter, when Redbird Golf Course is closed, you can find a trail from the backyard to enjoy a walk on the course.

The Tree House offers mountain living with tons of natural light and and a chalet ambiance. Lots of big windows offer up-close views of nature. On a clear night in our townhouse you can gaze up at the stars from your bed. And in the morning, wake up to a window of sunlight filtering through the tree tops. Watch the squirrels play in the back yard from the deck outside the bedrooms, and maybe catch sight of woodpeckers in the moss-covered pines…all without ever leaving the condo. Early morning sun adds an orange glow to the mountain in the distance.

There's nothing like it at this price range. Newly added to the vacation rental market. Be one of the first to enjoy one of the most sought after locations in Sapphire Valley Resort. It is perfect for families with children as well as retirees. Walk to restaurants, playground, pools, fitness center, miniature golf, tube slide, ski lifts, walking trail, zip line and more. About a mile drive to Lake Fairfield for boating, kayaking and swimming. Sapphire National golf course, and tennis courts are nearby. Horseback riding also available. Contact Owner for details of Sapphire Valley Resort amenities package. . You can walk to Mica's Restaurant, featuring live entertainment during peak season. Pet friendly.

The Tree House is a part time home for the owners, not just a rental property that we rarely visitso there's a lot of attention to details that make it welcoming and comfortable.

Area Information
Sapphire Valley is a perfect getaway. The natural beauty of the area makes it an ideal place to relax. Being right in the middle of a resort also offers a lot of benefits. There's always something to do. But location isn't everything. We also chose this particular townhouse because of the architectural details, particularly the amazing windows that bring the outside in and fill the home with natural light.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION was part of our reason for choosing our townhouse. Its convenient to everything without any throughway traffic. Park your car and enjoy the short walk to pools, playground and other amenities. The other reason we chose it was the light, soaring ceilings and openness of the place. It is unlike most condos in the area, which are dark during the day, requiring lights to be constantly on. This condo is also larger than most two bedroom units (approx 1400 sq ft.) so guests can feel cozy without being cramped.
A 10 to 15 minute drive takes you to the popular Whiteside Mountain hiking trail with breathtaking views of distant mountain ranges. Other hiking trails and waterfalls are within a 15 minute drive. Boutique shopping, restaurants and art galleries are only 3 miles away in Cashiers. The grocery store is less than two miles away.

Heavenly Experience

August 18, 2016

What a heavenly retreat for my hubby's birthday getaway from the Florida heat! This was a last minute booking, and it was exactly what I dreamed of...beautifully furnished with a lovely decor and linens, towels, china, pillows, and just everything we could want or need for our mountain escape. The bed was so comfortable. The recliners great for reading on a rainy day. The very secluded spacious decks were for wonderful for chilling out. And, the location is so close to Mica's for lunch or dinner when we wanted a little escape from my home cooking in the very well equipped kitchen. The Tree House was our first rental in Cashiers since we sold our second home there several years ago. We felt so comfortable and at home in the Tree House, and Robert was a delight to deal with. Our Labradoodle, Lola, loved every minute she spent in the mountain coolness. We invited our Atlanta friends up for a couple of days, and they could not believe how spacious and comfortable the home was. The three full bathrooms ( one in each bedroom and one off the living room) are a big Plus! We have returned to Florida and will be planning our return trip before too long.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We had no idea what River Run was other than it was close to where my in-laws live. When we arrived, the townhouse was very clean and comfortable. We had a chance to speak to the owners and they are lovely people. They truly cared about our stay and were very gracious. I would recommend this rental to anyone that wants to take advantage of the Sapphire Valley Master Association amenities.

The Tree House is light and airy. Very clean and modern. Wake up to sunlight filtering through the trees Pillows comfortable and king bed very comfortable.

We stayed at this home to attend a wedding and could not have asked for a better place! The location was private, yet close to everything. The home is beautifully decorated, is very spacious and has private decks. The amenities were great as well. The owners were quick to respond to any questions and the check-in was seamless! We will definitely be back - for a longer stay next time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tree House in River Run. The house was just adorable and equipped with all the amenities we needed. The home is set back among beautiful trees with a nice green space. The location to the community center, golf and playground was within walking distance and so convenient for our family. The owners are so friendly, helpful and gracious. We highly recommend renting their home and look forward to another stay next summer.
