The setting- a picturesque one-acre lot that backs to a bubbling stream. Located within the Sapphire Valley Resort, fun and relaxation can be expected. After a long day of hiking and exploring, unwind on one of the two screened-in back decks and let the sights and sounds of the stream calm you. The cottage features open-concept living, a fully equipped kitchen, and three ensuite bedrooms. The lower level offers a large second family room- so the kids can have their own space.
