Property description

If you are looking for an incredible view, tranquil location, in a spacious (1600 sq.ft.) and well appointed residence then this is it.

Enjoy mornings with a cup of coffee in hand, watching the mist rise over the lake in this pristine environment. It is really magical! The greatest vacation spot! Tons to do…hiking through the beautiful woods and transversing the Toxaway River while passing by beautiful waterfalls on the Toxaway River Trail is always a favorite. Swimming in our heated pool or in our crystal clean, private lake is a must! Boating, rafting, paddle boarding and kayaking are all available! Toxaway has always been an escape from the hustle bustle of life. It's a kick back and enjoy yourselves kind of place. You remember what is important and family has real time together. You can be out all day enjoying the lake or antiquing in nearby towns. You can spend part of your day hiking and then come back for a game of tennis. It's a place where you find yourself again. Everyone who visits Toxaway always wants to return!

The details:
Plenty of parking!! You enter from a stone entrance into the dining room/kitchen area. The dining room comfortably seats 6 and overlooks an outside patio area with rustic sofas, chairs and a Weber gas BBQ grill .
Enjoy evenings together in our huge family room with soaring ceiling, stone fireplace, reclaimed wood floor, built in wall unit with large, flat screen tv with direct tv/dvr, surround sound and blu-ray dvd/cd player. Large sectional sofa accomodates the whole family. Tons of games to play, dvd's, cd's, and even marshmallow forks.

Enjoy the mountain cool breezes and full lake views on our screened porch. A great place to read, dine or meet with friends.

The Master Bedroom, above the family room includes an ultra comfortable king size bed, a table to use your computer (we have free community wifi) and a printer should you need it. Hardwood pine floors.
The newly renovated master bathroom has a vaulted wood ceiling, a huge built in shower, new double vanity, hardwood floor, and fluffy, plush towels.
The lower level also faces the lake with two additional bedrooms, recently carpeted (2012) with comfortable queen beds. The second bath is on this level( renovated in 2012). Views from all levels are beautiful!

Toxaway Shores encompasses 5 acres with a lake swimming area, boat docks, heated swimming pool, 2 fire pits, tennis courts and even an herb garden should you enjoy cooking. Boat rentals are available thru Lake Toxaway Marina should you choose to do some boating. You will always have something to do! Hiking trails in the Toxaway area are abundant with many waterfalls. I have put together a book over the years of directions to all of the local hiking trails and have included photos of most. Should you elect to dine out, there are several excellent restaurants within 5 minutes of the condo. Additionally, I have included area restaurants, horse back riding , zip lining , and white water rafting info in this book to make sure you have an incredible mountain experience!! My gift to each family is beautiful photograph note cards of Lake Toxaway for you to take home to share with your friends and family.

For the children, there is a private walk in swimming area to the lake in our cove, heated pool, huge backyard for the kids to play, family friendly hiking trails, gem mining, horseback riding and friday ho downs at the local community center.

Transylvania County is known as the land of waterfalls, with over 200.
This is an amazing area with so much to do!! Yet, if you are looking for a beautiful place to kick your feet up and relax..It's perfect for that too! The lake sits at 3000 feet so warm days and cool nights. Toxaway is a private lake, the largest in N.C. yet no jet skis to disturb an early am canoe ride or cup of coffee on the dock. We have tried to create the perfect escape to the lake and mountains by providing everything you will need.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO! Start your day with a cup of coffee while watching the mist rise from the lake and the geese making their morning flight. You can swim in our heated pool or swim in our fresh water lake, the largest private lake in NC. Hiking is abundant. Toxaway River Trail, 5 mins from our condo, is one of the favorites. There are national parks throughout the area. Gorges State Park is 10-15 mins from the condo. Make sure you hike Rainbow Falls, about 6 miles. There is gem mining locally for the kids on 281. Great restaurants in Toxaway include the Brown Trout and Amore. Canoeing and tubing is located at Headwater Outfitters about 15 mins down 64E. You can rent a boat at the marina and enjoy cruising the lake or any of the many water sports you may enjoy. Then again, if you want to sit and read…that's perfect too!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: George and I have vacationed to Lake Toxaway forever! We own our second home in Florida. We both love the beauty and tranquil setting of Lake Toxaway. We swim, hike and boat all summer long. Our son lives in California as a web producer, but brings all of his friends back for a mountain vacation and river rafting. We have the best of both worlds…a beautiful lake retreat and a home on the river for the winter in Florida. This year, we are sharing the relaxing lake experience with you!

Why the Owner Chose Lake Toxaway:
As one of the founding families of Lake Toxaway, Lucy Moltz (owned the Greystone Inn) said 'I've been all over the world, but I have never been anywhere as beautiful as Lake Toxaway'. That is how we feel too! Our condo has been in my husband's family since Toxaway Shores was developed in the 1970's. It is interesting how the properties pass from generation to generation here. We purchased our unit because of the beautiful long view of Lake Toxaway to the dam.We have always loved the mountains, but Lake Toxaway is special. Anyone who has visited us here, always wants an invite back. This is the first time we have rented our condo as we feel that we'd like to share the joy and relaxation this location holds. We have renovated the condo over the years and have it just like we want it now, with reclaimed wood floors in the huge Family room, pine in the master bedroom and bath, completely redone master bath and work area off of the master bedroom. It's just the perfect location and a relaxing, comfortable, well-appointed place to vacation. Toxaway Shores consists of 24 units on 5 beautiful acres that overlook Lake Toxaway; North Carolina's largest private lake with 14 miles of shoreline. Sunset cruises are a must! We are truly up in the mountains. Cashiers is 20 mins. from the condo, Brevard 30 minutes and Asheville an hour. Toxaway Shores has an easy 45 minutes access to the Asheville airport. Within 5-10 minutes, there are hiking trails that you will love, Toxaway River Trail, Mills Creek Falls. and you can hike to the bottom of Toxaway Falls for an amazing view of its entire length. There is a small stand by the falls to buy fresh eggs, jams, honey and Amish butter. Should you be looking for a river float adventure, there is an outfitter 15 minutes toward Brevard that is located right on the river. You can rent boats, tubes, canoes and kayaks at Lake Toxaway Marine just across from the condos adjacent to the LT Country Club.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The lake sits at 3000 feet, so warm days and cool nights. Toxaway is a private lake, the largest in N.C. Enjoy a quiet morning walking the dock with a cup of coffee or sitting in one of the adorandeck chairs reading a good book. Get your peace of mind back! We love being an hour from Asheville too. Take a day trip to see The Biltmore Estate, or enjoy one of the many summer concerts at sunset on the back lawn of the estate (call or go to the Biltmore webpage for a list of entertainers), go on a brewery tour as this area is becoming one of the top brewery destinations, downtown shopping is fun from homemade potato chips, unique teas, to funky fun has it all! Many great restaurants too! Check out for some great dining deals. There is also an Arboretum that is beautiful you can see for a small fee. Go into Montford for some great Jamacian cooking or to the Arts District for a walk about! You'll have a fun day!
