Description Description
UPDATE: Sapphire Sky has just completed a major renovation with an additional 1,000 square feet of living space! New wall-to-wall windows overlook what some consider the best view in Wolf Laurel. The new floor plan includes a large living room, a gourmet kitchen and dining area, an updated bedroom with a full bath, and a loft space.

Pack your bags for Sapphire Sky, a secluded mountain escape that's perfect for a high-elevation getaway. This open, rustic-industrial style home boasts four large porches and newly installed wall-to-wall windows that capitalize on the long-range mountain views. Experience stunning sunrises and sunsets over the valley from the comfort of a newly renovated home!

Beautifully decorated, Sapphire Sky is a spacious retreat that offers plenty of room for a large family or group of friends. You'll appreciate the comfort of the open living area, where a large sectional couch offers a place to kick back and enjoy the gas fireplace and built-in, flat screen 65" TV, which features Fire TV and a DVD player. Join together for meals at the custom-built, 9-foot walnut dining table, seating up to 12 people! Plus there's additional seating for five at the kitchen island. Home cooked meals never tasted better than when made on vacation! Sapphire Sky also includes a landline phone with free long distance to allow you to check in back home or at the office anytime.

After a long day exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains, cozy up by the gas fireplace in the privacy of the upper level main suite. A private porch, built-in flat screen TV with DVD player, and newly renovated attached full bath make the main suite ideal for absolute relaxation.

On the lower level, a second bedroom with a queen bed shares a full bath with the bunk area. The custom-built bunk bed area is perfect for kids, featuring two lower twin beds joined by a porthole between them (fun for whispering secrets back-and-forth!), and one extra-long twin bed on the upper bunk. Additional sleeping accommodations, a convertible sofa bed and 4 twin bed flip chairs, are available in a spacious loft that is accessed from the living area by a beautiful spiral staircase.

Experience vibrant mountain sunsets while soaking in the five-person hot tub! Everyone will love lounging in comfortable rocking chairs or enjoying a meal at the outdoor dining area, which overlooks scenic wooded and mountain views. The two upstairs porches provide more relaxing spaces, including a double hammock where you can forget all your worries under the star-filled night skies. For a fun-filled evening, roast marshmallows together over the outdoor fire pit! Discover a fantastic getaway that will leave you longing to come back again and again to Sapphire Sky.

Need more space to accommodate a large group? Ruby Sky is located nearby. Rent both properties together for family reunions, group getaways, and those who just need a little more room to spread out.

Views are Insane
Great stay! Would highly recommend. Very clean home and well stocked kitchen. Views are insane! Tie down the trash can or the bears will steal it all!

Well-Stocked Home
Beautiful home with incredible views. Super comfy and great for spending quality family time together. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. Would return in a heartbeat!
Nicole I from Chicago, IL - Posted: 9/15/2022 - Stayed from: 8/12/2022 to 8/14/2022
Beautiful and Spacious
We loved staying at this property! The view was amazing! The home was beautiful and spacious, it fit our family of 8 nicely. We also brought our dog, there was a cute area with dog bowls and a blanket. We brought our dog’s stuff, but that was a great addition. The home is located on a mountain, so you will be driving up mountain roads. Our GPS found the property no problem, but the written directions were awesome and my brother and his family used those to navigate to the property. We will totally stay here again!

Katherine L from Charlotte, NC - Posted: 10/19/2020
"Very nice set up. Very clean. Cute and trendy furnishings. The MBR bed was super comfortable and the bedding was fantastic. The layout was fantastic and it was clear there was a lot of thought and care put into this home. We had a wonderful time. We especially loved the back deck / back yard fire pit - it had a stunning view and the main room with open floor plan was ideal for us to have plenty of space while being together. Maintenance personnel were very responsive, helpful, and welcoming. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this rental property - would recommend. "
Michele H from USA - Posted: 7/14/2020
"Very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and rental property - would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen well stocked. The decor and views cannot be beat. And our grandchildren loved the bunk beds. We loved the deck and inside areas that provided gorgeous nonstop views. We also enjoyed the daily trips to the hot tub. We loved the fire pit and made s'mores."
Wendy U from Weston, FL - Posted: 7/2/2020
"This place has it all. Plan to come and relax! No need to leave but if you want to, you are about an hour from chimney rock and other beautiful hikes and sites. Gorgeous mountain view to wake up to and watch the sun set in the evenings."
Kate P from Celebration, FL - Posted: 6/4/2020
"We had a wonderful ""getaway"" at Sapphire Sky. We greatly appreciate the quality, design, decor and warmth. We felt right at home, and so comfortable. We enjoyed looking through the fantastic book about the renovation/addition. We went on hikes, enjoyed the hot tub, the firepit, the grill, the balconies, the game room, etc. etc."
Emily & from Saint Inigoes, MD - Posted: 5/14/2020
"This house is amazing!! The view is unbelievable. Sunsets by the fire pit were our favorite evening activity. There are so many great hikes nearby. No one is around. Talk about social distancing. Thai place is complete isolation. We hiked the Appalachian trail almost every day. All of slept like babies. The place is so cozy. We loved all the throw blankets and amenities that made you feel like home. Bins of fun games to play and smart TVs. The kids loved the hot tub. The sheets, linens and beds are all great. We will definitely be back. It's one of our favorite houses we've ever rented. We created lifelong memories at Sapphire Sky! Thank you!"
Sara K from USA - Posted: 5/12/2020
This was a stellar property. Definitely recommend!
Hector P from USA - Posted: 9/25/2019
"Thank you for making my week fun! The bunkbeds were fun to sleep in. I also liked the upstaires spot. It is cute. And the keybord. Elsie age 9. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house! We loved the view, hot tub and exploring the beautiful mountain. "
Chad & from Oceanside, CA - Posted: 5/20/2019
"From the moment you enter a warmth and the familiarity envelopes you, kind of like an old slipper...We enjoyed this house, wish we had more sure we'll be up this hill again! "
Cherie B from Charlotte, NC - Posted: 4/8/2019
The house was awesome and my family had a great time and we plan on staying at this house again.

Ryleigh C - Posted: 12/14/2018
"As a family, we have been coming to the Asheville area, for the last 4 years. By far this has been our best experience. My family stayed in Sapphire Sky. and it just wasn't the view the wildlife the amenities that made our trip so enjoyable it was the staff Travis was quick and courteous, and fix any problem we had. last and certainly not least we had a problem on Saturday and the chief director of operations Mark called me personally to resolve our issues. The staff at these properties is wonderful. The Anthony Family highly recommends... This is where you need to spend your next getaway!"
Scott A from Aiken, SC - Posted: 12/12/2018
"Sapphire Sky was lovely! views breathtaking and super comfortable! we had great family dinners and gatherings, never went out because it was too nice. "
Jessica B from Laurel, MD - Posted: 6/26/2018
The house is modern and well equipped. The kitchen was great for cooking meals at home. We especially enjoyed the views of the valley from the back balconies and porch. Asheville is an easy 30-minute drive away. This is a great property for a family or two families looking for a secluded getaway.
Traveler's from USA - Posted: 5/7/2018
"From the flatlands and farmland of Indiana all the way to here, the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Thanks for opening up your beautiful home to us. Literally, we had the mountain to ourselves. My wife and I went on a run in the mornings, ah those beautiful mornings. The crisp, fresh mountain air and those hills that really burn the quads. Nice to relax in the hot tub after cooling off and relaxing these very weary muscles. The open concept of kitchen and living/dining room kept the family together and with a teenager and wifi available that can be a problem without the amenities you have provided here. Thank you for this lovely cottage. "
