Sapphire, Jackson County, North Carolina
La Casa Del Amour was built with all locally harvested and milled lumber. This custom home/cabin has a supply of all natural spring water that percolates to the surface of the ground. Natural spring water is rarely available, but due to the age of the spring it has been grandfathered in and is the source of water for both the home and salon next door, a historic building called River's Salon at the Raspberry Cottage.

The home was built for Ha 'River' Mix, who passed away last year due to a sudden and unexpected aneurysm. She was an organ donor and donated five organs to five families on the east coast. River died in Mission hospital. She left behind her salon, which is continuing under her name River's Salon just around the corner on highway 64. A book was written in her honor available on Amazon called ' Orga...

Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location is very convenient to gorge state park as well as restaurants and grocery store in Cashiers. However, the first thing we saw when we opened the front door was a dusty tv table. The counters in the kitchen also had rice and other crumbs left on them. There were no towels in sight in the master bath so after searching I found some damp towels and sheets in the dryer. So, after a 10 hr drive to get there I started my vacation by doing laundry. To top it off there was a note to leave a tip for the cleaning crew although the rental agreement requires starting a load of wash and running the dish washer before departing which I did. Hmm, leave a tip and do part of their job? The only tip I could give the cleaning crew is to do a better job. The owner seems like a real likable guy and eager to please. I am providing this feedback because if I were in his shoes i would want to know how to improve. A little more attention to details and this would be a sweet little place to...

From the busy street outside and the overgrown Spring time foliage that blankets the side of the mountain I began to wonder if I was in the right place. However, as soon as you open the door you can feel the warmth and comfort as if you were a thousand miles away. The home truly lives up to its name. The craftsmanship of the entire place is extraordinary. I rented this place to take my parents as a get away and they truly loved it. We spent every morning and every evening on the upper level porch just relaxing.
The only few negatives were the busy street out front that would interfere with the sounds of the natural springs and the under construction area outside. The construction outside was not that big of a deal since you could tell more work was being added to make the place better. The noise was bothersome but as soon as you went inside you couldn't hear anything. My families wants to return to the house in the fall or winter just to be able to enjoy the beauty of the...
