The Sapphire Inn on Sapphire Lake

The Sapphire Inn on Sapphire Lake

 

One of five hotels built by the Lake Toxaway Hotel Group in the late 1890's, Sapphire Inn was just 5 miles from Fairfield Inn -  but by horse and buggy - a long ride.


Today Sapphire Lake is known as Whisper Lake. Sapphire Inn was lost in the early 1930's by fire. 


The foundation of the Inn was still visible just a few years ago near Old Sapphire Post Office Road and the lake.
