Property description

Enjoy family living on Lake Toxaway just like our special guests decided to do.

2 NEW 39" FLAT SCREEN TV'S!
This four bedroom home is within walking distance to Greystone Inn where you can indulge in facials, manicures and massages. A pontoon boat provides a floating platform that shows off spectacular lake views. In addition, a nice dip in the lake down by the dam can provide just the departure from - well - most things. Oscar the Mule Deer, seated above the fireplace, is waiting to share country living at it best. He was really excited that we chose to mount his whole head as opposed to his cousin who would up contributing only his antlers to our hanging lamp. Anyway, the fireplace is without peer - Grove Park Inn, notwithstanding. Once you get a good bed of coals going, you will watch the fire more than the TV - guaranteed. The drapes in the living room are room darkening so a nice fire in the middle of a sunny afternoon with the drapes drawn (and maybe HBO with mute enabled) can help provide relief from too much night before or another bad headline from the WSJ... just a thought.

Beautiful summer days and crisp mountain evenings await your family and friends, including your pets. Our king size beds and extra nice linens will make you want to stay much longer than initially intended!

The picture of the house shows the garage and opposite of it is the kitchen. The one upstairs bedroom that does not face the lake is also shown between the two. The main floor master bedroom faces the lake and has its own bath that can double as the main floor powder room. (We always make the kids use the upstairs baths during the all important intermission from too much Dora.) The master also has sliding door access to the back porch with a private sitting area for morning coffee and evening Stingers. The living room is 22x13 so it is plenty big enough to accommodate everyone who stays at the house. Some very large karaoke parties have been held in this room. There are 2 sliding glass doors that lead to the back porch. The dining room is good sized , faces the lake and has a sliding glass door to the covered back porch where the ping pong table resides. As we've gotten older, ping pong has yielded to beer pong. The kitchen is very complete from a cooking standpoint: upper and lower ovens, 4 burner electric stove and plenty of dishes, glasses, pans and utensils. There are 2 refrigerators available so the wine, beer and cokes have a home of their own. The laundry room is off the kitchen. The washer is a horizontal axis type that can hold most bed linens at once. The 3 upstairs bedrooms share 2 baths with one of the rooms being set up as a 'suite'. There is a safety gate stowed in the linen closet at the top of the steps.

The boathouse is a rather large (25x25) additional outdoor gathering area for day or night. The view of the lake from the house and boathouse is east-northeast so clear nights can provide excellent moon rise parties - these can be short, though, as it only takes the moon about 9 minutes before everybody starts looking for something else to do. It's dark at night in Toxaway so if you're in from a well lighted city like Asheville or Miami, the kids will enjoy the true planetarium effect of lying on their backs on the boathouse roof and observing actual stars as well as the crisscrossing satellites. There is 110AC at the boathouse for cell phone recharging as the teens always seem to do all their calling and texting away from the main group.

Vacation on the lake for less than you lost last week in the world markets. We have several nice people available for cleaning or odds and ends if you stay longer and need some household help while you are finishing up your manicure. Why ruin a good manicure with housework anyway?

Directions to the house: you can take either entrance into Toxaway, but the main entrance on Hwy 64/281 seems to have the most directional signs to the Greystone Inn. So, follow the signs to the Greystone and take the first right just before the tennis courts near the Inn (West Shore Drive). Proceed down this little road for a minute or two and turn left into the next to the last driveway. The house is visible from the road and the mailbox is numbered (36 WSD). The phone number at the house is listed on the handsets. If the phone rings while you are there, (and you haven't given out our number) feel free to answer it if you feel like brushing up on your skills for turning down either the Satellite TV dudes or some new long distance player who just arrived in the area. Otherwise, feel free to disconnect the phones during your stay.
