Beautiful house and accommodations in an amazing settjnf

  • 5 of 5

I visited the house for a New Years celebration with friends and we had a blast. The house has amazing views, comfortable and terrific amenities and provides an opportunity to be a part of a tranquil environment.

The Owners were very accommodating.

We will absolutely be coming back!

Perfect home for a big group

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not give it justice. It was cozy yet had enough space for 6 adults (and easily would of held 8 comfortably) to have their own space. The owner Karla and property manager Rocky were very friendly and helpful. They were quick at responding to any questions we had. The hardest part was leaving and we are looking forward to staying here again!

Outstanding home, comfortable accommodations, hosts big family meals!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big family reunion this weekend with people staying in multiple houses around Lake Toxaway. This home was absolutely perfect for the occasion. It sleeps a ton of folks very comfortably, and there is plenty of space indoors and outdoors to have buffet style family dinners. The kitchen is huge and opens to the dining and living room, which is perfect for cooks to stay connected to the rest of the crowd when prepping meals. And, there's a small open loft space on the second floor where the kids gathered in eye sight of the adults in the living/dining room downstairs. Very helpful owner and property manager. We will stay here again the next time we're in Toxaway!

Amazing Stay and Host!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to hide here from Hurricane Irma. The house and neighborhood were incredibly comfortable. Tucked away among the rhododendrons, this house and it's view will make you feel instantly relaxed. The interior is finely appointed with a lot of amazing detail. Located almost exactly between Cashiers and Brevard, you have your choice of nearby amazing towns to visit. You also have what I consider to be the best park in the Southeast right next door, Gorges. The best part of this property is the owner. I have been renting every year in Toxaway, Cashiers and Highlands for 20 years and Karla was the kindest and most helpful property owner I have dealt with. She went out of her way everyday to check on us and make sure we were comfortable. I would definitely stay at her property again!

Lovely weekend home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The back patio was especially nice, and we enjoyed the outdoor fireplace in particular. The views are lovely and the upstairs bedrooms had plenty of space for kids.
