Property description

Once you cross the private bridge past the mountain pond to this newer luxury mountain lodge nestled next to the bubbling Mills Creek, you know you have arrived for peace and comfort. The house is on 3 acres in a very private setting off of Fairway Drive, with lush rhododendron and mountain laurel. This native stone and rough-sawn siding lodge is situated to take maximum advantage of Mills Creek with water falls, boulders and flora from its expansive vaulted wall of windows in the great room. The great room has a Grand-Lodge style two-story stone wood-burning fireplace with comfortable seating including an over-sized sofa, oriental rugs and antique furnishings.

The banquet sized dining room seats 10-12 with vaulted ceiling and opens to a covered porch on Mills Creek with additional outdoor seating for 4-6 with another wood-burning fireplace for the cool nights.

Open the windows along Mills Creek and sleep peacefully with the cool breeze and babbling water sounds echoing throughout your room. The main level master bedroom with fireplace and private covered porch overlooks Mills Creek. The luxurous master bath includes his and hers vanity with limestone counters, separate shower and Baine Ultra spa tub.

The kitchen is open to the dining room with high-end appliances including a warming drawer and wine cooler. There is an office on the main level and a large laundry room.

The second level has two bedrooms (King and Queen) with separate baths and a loft.

Enjoy the stone patio with fire pit along the banks of Mills Creek. This house is located close to the Toxaway River Hiking Trail, 1/2 mile from the marina and club and a short walk through the woods to the golf course.

Additional sleeping is available on a twin bed in the basement with 1/2 bath.

All in beautiful Lake Toxaway Resort, voted best year-round resort in North Carolina.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Being a high end builder in the Atlanta area, I searched for over 2 years to fine the perfect lot with a significant water feature. My wife and I finally found it in 2006 in Lake Toxaway, NC and started building our custom designed home nestled along the banks of Mills Creek. We worked closely with our architect to make sure the heavily-wooded laurel and rhododendron filled landscape was preserved. It was important to make sure the natural setting and rushing creek became an integral part of our home’s main living areas. We have 2 daughters. One lives in Austin, TX working in adverting with Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and our youngest attended Clemson University, which is only 1 hour away. She is now a CPA with PWC in Atlanta. Our family, friends and Chloe our great golden retriever have enjoyed numerous fun filled activities located within Lake Toxaway Estates and some within a short drive. While on the property we have made many family memories renting a boat and cruising Lake Toxaway’s 650 acre private lake, skiing, swimming, fishing, canoeing, picnicking, and hiking along the Lake Toxaway river trail, viewing magnificent waterfalls, picnicking on the top of the mountain at The Meadows and a friendly game of touch football with family and friends. Within a short drive to Cashiers or Brevard, you can find the perfect antique; enjoy the works of local artist in a variety of mediums including painting, pottery or sculpture. The beauty of nature is endless here. Come and enjoy our piece of heaven on earth!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
One of a kind luxury home surrounded by an unique mountain creek and natural flora created by the best nature has to offer. The sounds of rushing water seems to surround you whether you are inside the home or trying to decide which porch to relax on with your family.
