The Nest was the cutest cabin in a superb area- my boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights and there were so many trails in the area for us to explore! We also enjoyed making barbecue in the campfire/grill in the yard. Lisa was so accommodating with this trip and everything we needed was found in the drawers- anything else we needed was available at the ingles 15 mins away. The cabin itself was adorable and so clean! Definitely would recommend and is the perfect getaway :)

A lovely cozy cabin with little touches that made our stay very comfortable. The cabin was very clean and roomy for two people. Great location in Sapphire. We loved sitting by the fire-pit after we got back from our daily adventures. We enjoyed the quiet surrounding. Closed to Gorge State Park for hiking and waterfalls. The host was thoughtful and great in communications with us. We would recommend The Nest for anyone looking for a getaway to the mountains.

Perfect spot, nestled in Sapphire with lots to do in the area! The cabin was much bigger than we expected it to be, and had pretty much everything we needed. Very cute decor and comfy beds! Lee was very available to us and helpful with recommendations. We definitely want to come back for another stay!

It’s a cozy cabin with all the things you may need tucked into cute drawers :) We totally enjoyed the fire pit and the host has thought of everything: kindling, Fire starters, a long lighter and stacked wood once you have a baby fire going!
Comfortable beds and bedding, a very comfy bathroom (shower/towels included), and extra blankets should you need them.
Great communication from the host and a note once inside the cabin with extra info.
Host provided coffee and a coffee cake (sweet surprise!) and recommendations for near-by restaurants and waterfalls.
We enjoyed gem mining (Jackson Hole Gem Mining/Highlands, NC), waterfalls (Whitewater Falls, Bridal Falls, Dry Falls), pizza at Villa Amato (Toxaway Lake), breakfast at Panthertown, and exploring Cashiers, Highlands, and Franklin NC.
It’s a wonderful ‘base camp’ for exploring this stunning area of western NC! We had some rain and enjoyed Yahtzee and cribbage on the covered porch in spite of the weather.
Would recommend for 1-2 people, those that want to explore without setting up camp, the feeling of camping but in a rustic cabin with electricity & plumbing :))

Lisa and her husband Lee were more than hospitable, they felt like family. They made me feel safe and made sure to check on me daily for any needs. I will be back and I HAVE RAVED to all my friends and family about their "Nest". I was honored to be their first guest at this location. Much gratitude 🙏
