We were not happy with the service we received. I made 3 phone calls directly to Wyndham Fairfield tried to ensure that we were placed closer to our family who are timeshare owners. I never received a phonecall back and it wasn't until we arrived that we found out they were in a totally different section so we spent time driving back and forth. The until at Foxhunt had a musty, moldy odor and the couch was not comfortable to sit on. All in all, I don't know if we will stay at Foxhunt again.

"Great fall-colors stay!"
Wonderful place for a getaway...feels "away from it all", but convenient to the SW NC area's attractions. The resort, spread out over several properties, offers complimentary pool/jacuzzi access, mini-golf, and board game checkout. Canoe/paddleboat rentals, gem mining, and other activities are available for a small fee. Of course, the kitchen/living area are nice enough that you may not want to leave the unit at all.

Our stay was nice until the 4th day. We woke up and had no water. We checked out early because the water wasn't going to be back on before midnight. We had paid in advance for the trip. I will not use Expedia again if I have to pre-pay because now we are out $118.00 for our room. I don't know how to get that credited back on my card. The place tha we stayed is only charging us for 3 days and we paid for 4 through Expedia.

"Amenities and cool air at Foxfire are excellent"
We stayed at Foxhunt which is a townhouse or condo type development that also serves as a time-share. Our unit was on a hillside in a deep woods environment. Both the high and low temps were approximately 12 degrees cooler than Atlanta. The amenities at Sapphire Valley are extensive and outstanding relative to other lodging facilities in the high country. Access to "civilization" meaning restaurants, stores, etc. in Highlands and Cashiers is excellent. We will be going back to Foxfire in the future which is the best recommendation.

Did not know that there were alpproximately 30 to 40 steps down to the condo. Inside the condo, there were about 8 steps up to the kitchen and living area, and 8 steps down to the bedroom. Wish I had known this before booking. My husband has A-Fib and this made it difficult for him to breathe.

Condo was very dark and gloomy. Walls should be painted a lighter color especially seeing it it was in the midst of the woods which made the rooms dark. Need better lighting and also needs a dehumidifier as it was very damp inside. Towels wouldn't even dry. Brochure shows a nice lake view. The only view we had was trees. Would I go back, no!!!!!!!

This was our second stay at Foxhunt & we loved it just as much as our first visit! We would have liked to have had 2 dbl. beds in the second bedroom rather than the 2 twins, but we were able to make it work for our family of 8. Would highly recommend Foxhunt for a great family vacation, convenient to all local attractions!

"Awesome, would recommend for a group! Cost saver!"
Awesome location for hiking, seeking out waterfalls. The have a recreation center with 2 outdoor pools, an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, putt-putt golf, a game room including ping pong and pool tables. They have gem mining for extra cost but all of those are free. They also have a lake to swim in where you can rent a canoe or paddle boat for extra cost. The kitchen is fully stocked, you really don't need to bring anything extra....all you need to cook is there (even a blender abs coffee maker). Only about 15 minutes from Highlands with a cute "downtown" area for light shopping and lunch. If you're in decent shape I would highly recommend rainbow falls, they're beautiful. Takes about a 3.5 mile hike round trip to see it. The only thing that was a little bothersome was they only give 2 passes for the Rec center when the condo holds 4 people minimum (king bedroom, bedroom with 2 single beds and a queen pull out couch in the den). However, you can buy more for $10 each at the office, it closes at 5 though (if you come in after 5, you have to check in across the main street at the security office). The office is a little difficult to find, it's a few miles down the street from the actual condos (turn into the neighborhood where the Rec center is and veer left where the road splits, it's on the left in a strip office building.)

"Good location, but..."
The first thing that greeted us when we opened the door to the condo was a strong musty/mildew odor. The layout of the place was fine, but the colors were depressing, and the blanket and pillows on the bed were sad. That said, we were pleased by the location of the property, and thought that the nightly rate was more than reasonable.

"Foxhunt Saphire NC"
The condo was fine. It was clean and had plenty of room. Late arrival you had to go through the Public Safety office. They were very helpful and without them I wouldn't have even been able to find the place. The entire time that I stayed the night before New Years Eve,New Years Eve and New Years Day their were no staff at the office. The phone numbers provided would go to someone off site that could not help you. The address on the web site didn't even take you to the office. The pictures from the web site are misleading about the indoor pool. The pool is actually at the Rec center and was closed. My children were disappointed. Had only a couple restaurants. We went to Micas. They had good food and friendly staff. Before going to Foxhunt again I would defiantly do more research next time. This was a last minute trip for a friends wedding. I probably will stay somewhere different next time. Hope this helps

The setting and room was very nice. Very spacious. I did not realize that this was a townhome where there was not any maid service, etc. Also, the Expedia directions for the check-in location were incorrect for late check-in. It took me a long time to find out that I needed to go to the Security office at The Village shopping center. But all in all it was a nice stay and I would stay there again.

"Nice place - very quiet!"
Our townhouse unit had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. We were a little disappointed in the fact that it was a distance away from most of what we wished to do. This would be perfect for a family who wanted some recreational facilities nearby (about 1 - 2 miles to that part of the resort). We were more interested in Highlands so it was not quite as convenient, but so wonderful to come back to quiet peace in the evenings! The lady who checked us in was very nice & helpful. Got the impression she loves her job - always a good sign. Our unit could have been just a smidge cleaner, although it was not by any means "dirty". We just saw a couple of things that could have been a bit more spic & span - but nothing to cause us to want to leave. If you have someone in your group that struggles with stairs, be sure to inquire about a unit with few steps. We had quite a climb to our car. All in all it was well worth the money & if conditions were appropriate, I'd DEFINITELY stay again!

The overall stay was good, although not aware of the fact that this place is in a rainforest and therefor we had a lot of rain.The rain interfered with our plans, which obviously is not the fault of the Foxhunt. The thing we didn't like that the property was so deep buried in the woods that it is was very dark and we needed the lights on all the time. The light were of the once that safe energy and therefor not a lot of it, specially in the bedroom.Otherwise well kept and clean and close to some restaurants and a very, very nice golf course called the National Sapphire, with special rates, because we stayed at the Foxhunt

"if you are not a fan of spiders, look elsewhere"
If you are more of a city person, you may get freaked out (as did some in my family) from the spiders in the room. In the first condo, I killed about 6 large spiders. I'm not actually sure what kind they were. They were sort of like daddy long legs but larger and quicker. After the first night, I called the front office and we were graciously moved to a different condo--one that was less in the woods. But I still killed 2 large spiders in the 2nd place. Besides the room, we did enjoy recreation facility that was about a mile from the condo. The indoor pool was great. We didn't use them, but there were also 2 outdoor pools that people seemed to be enjoying. We also had fun mini-golfing and time in the arcade.

This was a pleasant surprise for real, has to be the best kept secret in the area till I don't want to tell where it's at. The staff was great, my wife called to find exactly where it was, the lady told us where it was and explained she would be there until 5pm and looked forward to seeing us. But we did not make it there by 5pm so guess what she called us back, yeah she called us back (We couldn't believe it) and told us what we had to do when we arrive at the property it went smooth as silk. Loved the room, clean, clean, clean not even dust. I very seldom give anything a Excellent rating but they knock it out of the park. Only thing that was lacking is we ran out of hot water taking a shower. But yes we would stay there again, and recommend to a friend.

"Great Getaway Spot but Don't Check-in After Hours"
We had a great time at Foxhunt @ Sapphire Valley. There are lots of things to do - swim, gem mining, hiking, etc. We were fortunate enough to have several inches of snow while we were there. The kids really enjoyed snow tubing. My only word of caution is that if you know you will have to check in after hours be sure to call ahead and ask any questions you may have. One important piece of info to check on is that every person over 14 needs to have an amenity card. We were shorted two cards and had to wait until the office opened at 11 on Saturday morning. All the after hour check in people do is give you a packet with your room keys but they aren't much help with specifics about your reservation because they don't work for SPM - the group that manages Foxhunt. We wanted to stay an extra night but when we called on Sunday there was no one in the office to help us. The answering service told me they would have someone call me but I never heard from anyone. We basically had to wait in limbo until they called us on Monday morning - an hour before check-out. In the end it all worked out but getting information when we needed it (non-business hours) was a little frustrating.

"very pleasant stay"
We loved our 2 night- stay there. It was nice for our family of four to have separated levels of living. The place was cozy. The decor was a bit dated and old fashioned but it did not bother us. I am particularly impressed with the kitchen as it is loaded with every thing we needed for cooking and baking. The supermarket, ski resort and attraction are very close by. We first confused with the map and direction. You need to check in at the main office by the ski resort first. It is best to call someone there for direction. They were very helpful. But since we have done it we could not wait to stay there again in the summer. The surrounding was just serene and beautiful. Beside it is only 3 hours from Atlanta.

"damp musty smell to unit"
Our unit was clean. . .if that is what the damp pile of towels in the entryway meant when we entered our unit for the first time. Seriously, the unit seemed clean, but there was an overall old musty smell to the unit. . .especially in the master bedroom area in basement. There was a "DampRid" moisture absorber in the master bedroom closet. . .so obviously the owners know there is a problem. The dishwasher didn't work well. The twin bathroom toilet overflowed. The twin bedroom TV remote control was missing. There was a lot of space in the unit for our family of 4, however, and we enjoyed the space and privacy. Overall, Foxhunt is an OK place to stay if you want to learn how to ski at Sapphire Valley. . .a beginner ski area. . We waited over an hour for our tubing time on January 1 since the staff got a late start in getting the ski and tubing areas open that day. The rumor was they had too many staff call in sick that day (maybe too late of a New Years Eve for many of the young staff. . .at the resort guests' inconvenience as a result). I will give the Sapphire Valley resort staff credit in trying to amend the situation by giving us 2 extra hours of tubing time. That was a nice recovery by Sapphire Valley. Altogether, Sapphire Valley is a great place to learn how to ski for the first time, and Foxhunt was a convenient place to stay.

The 3 story 2 bedroom condo was very clean and well equipped. Plenty of space. King bedroom suite very nice. Patios on two levels. Lots of stuff to do on the property - game room, minigolf, horseshoes, snowtubing. We did have a problem with the reservation. We had reserved two units under two separate reservations. One for 3 days and one for 2 days. They only had the 2 day one. We were told this happens often with Expedia and other travel sites. Fortunately, we had less in our party than anticipated and only needed one unit. Plus Foxhunt only charged us for two nights though we stayed three so it worked out great for us.

We own a time share at Foxhunt, Sapphire Valley NC, so we are very familiar with the area. We decided to visit a few days to enjoy a different season. We love it there! Yes, the units are aging but they have been very well maintained and remodeled over the years. One thing that I would recommend to Hotels.com is to tell guests where to locate CHECK IN! We arrived on Sunday and when we discovered the Foxhunt check-in closed, we went to Public Safety office to retrieve our packet. I was concerned about 1st time visitors! Also the address on the website does not match up with ANYTHING Foxhunt - especially since Foxhunt check in isn't even ON Hwy 64. I'm surprised others haven't panicked and reported this obvisous error.
