The view from the deck is second to none. My husband and I met our two adult children at Sapphire Sky for a relaxing getaway, and that’s just what we got. The house is very thoughtfully laid out; we appreciated having bedrooms and suites that were separated and gathering places, indoors and out, that were convenient and comfortable. The drive into Asheville is an easy 25-30 minutes, and driving back up to Sapphire Sky felt like coming home. We also enjoyed some nearby hiking trails. Our dog Hazel probably had the best time of us all! We will be back.
The Sapphire Sky house was absolutely stunning. The house itself had a lot of charm, including the beautiful furniture, decor, & amenities. However, the setting & the views are what made this place stand apart from the rest. We were so sad to leave but we will definitely be planning another trip as soon as we can make it back. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.
Wonderful property with a beautiful open floor plan and sweeping views of the mountains. I've already booked my next trip here for the fall and I highly recommend this home!
My wife, four kids (ages 12-18) and another 18-year-old friend went for the week. The property is beautiful with incredible views! Everything was awesome!
This was the perfect spot for my first time visiting North Carolina! We saw a huge bear during the first night of our stay, which I’ve never seen a bear in my life! The view? Absolutely amazing. Would definitely recommend this place.
Our stay was exceptional! We loved every aspect of this home. The views are to die for and we recommend staying at this home.
Thank you for the positive energy, warm vibes, refreshing views, and bringing our family closer!
The home is beautiful
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!
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!
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!
Beautiful Cabin. The Kitchen came in handy with every dish and utensil needed. Loved the comfy couch. This house was very inviting and accommodating. Nicely warm, cozy, and spacious. The views were spectacular.
Amazing views and the home was very comfortable.

We thought the home was very nice.
"The view was amazing, the hot tub was great. "
We had our Thanksgiving week at this lovely home. It was absolutely perfect.
"We appreciated the openness of the kitchen/living room, the views from the back decks, and how comfortable and relaxing the couch was."
Great property with really good views - we enjoyed the location and inside living space. We had a positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. Kitchen was well stocked.
Thanks so much for this experience!! It was awesome and the view from the property was AMAZING!!
"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. "
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
This was a stellar property. Definitely recommend!
"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. "
"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 time...am sure we'll be up this hill again! "
The house was awesome and my family had a great time and we plan on staying at this house again.
"Everything was fantastic and we were so pleased with how maintenance responded to our calls regarding the roads, plowing, etc. Just fantastic. "
"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!"
"Sapphire Sky was lovely! views breathtaking and super comfortable! we had great family dinners and gatherings, never went out because it was too nice. "
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.
"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. "
It was great!
Beautiful property and great views - thank you very much for the late check out also.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Great job on the decor. Quite a few lady bug friends at this time of year :)
We had an amazing time! The views were amazing and we felt comfortable during our stay. We would definitely come back.
Thank you for the wonderful stay!
We had a great time and really enjoyed the hot tub! We loved the decor. Wish we could've stayed longer. Love the mountain views!
" Beautiful home, with beautiful views! Nice and relaxing!!"
We had a great time!
"You did a wonderful job renovating this cottage. Its lovely! The hammock - great idea! We traveled here from Milton, GA (north of Atlanta) to escape the GA heat, the mountains delivered! Enjoying the cooler temps. The views are breathtaking! Love all the decks and their views! "
Our first stay in this part of the mountains. We loved your decor and the view was beyond fabulous! We truly enjoyed our stay this week.
Sapphire sky was great overall. Loved the views and being away from everyone.
We had a very positive experience.
