Counting down to the Day of Totality

Sapphire Valley Resort and The High South is one of the few areas in North Carolina where visitors and residents can experience this extremely rare event* - a total solar eclipse! Sapphire Valley is in the direct path of totality, as it is known, and very close to the center line, or area of longest duration!

On August 21, 2017, our Day of Totality will start just after 1PM when the moon will start blocking the sun and shadow cast by it will move over Sapphire Valley Resort! Everyone on the Resort will be able to experience this amazing event including over 2 minutes of complete darkness.
