About Rita Olschewski
We bought this home 10 years ago and loved the quiet location and the nearby hiking. There is a stream near by for trout fishing and we built a tree fort with our grandkids. As they got older they wanted to be on a lake, so we built another house on Lake Toxaway where we spend our summer and fall. We still go up to the cabin for hiking and mushroom picking.
Rita Olschewski purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Rita Olschewski chose Lake Toxaway
This home has fantastic views through huge windows. Even though we are in the woods, there is lots of sun on the porches and lawn. The property is surrounded by woods and National Forest.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Close to Lake Toxaway with it's boat and kayak rental.We fell in love with the quiet serenity of this home. The water fall trails nearby are awesome and Tony's free guided hikes every Friday make it accessable to every one.

Perfect cabin for large or multiple families.
I have a large family and we really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room indoors and fun things to do outdoors. I suggest you stop for groceries on the way to the cabin because it is a bit far to go back to get them. The driveway is narrow and steep, but we got up just fine.
Perfect place for vacation!!!
The cabin was beautiful and very family friendly, we had an amazing time. Beautiful view with an awesome backyard. We haven’t had the time to go tubing or kayaking so will definitely go back. Thank you Rita for your hospitality and great customer service!
This is the perfect place for a trip to the mountains. We loved it. The views are wonderful. Spacious and well equipped. Easy to rent and quick on the deposit refund. If looking for a place to stay this is the one.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin! The cabin was well stocked from the kitchen to all the linens we needed. The owners provided a lot of information from cabin amenities to local attractions. The drive into the cabin is steep, but it is the mountains! The driveway is very well maintained and we had no problem getting to the location. We loved the short trails right by the cabin ~ What a nice touch! The local waterfalls are beautiful and we also visited the Biltmore and went horseback riding. It was a wonderful vacation that provided a lot of great family time in a very comfortable cabin.
What views! Comfy!
We were a group of 10 and found the house suited our needs. Many great features: excellent and strong Wi-Fi, comfortable bed and lovely bath in master suite with huge closet, (I didn't go downstairs to see rooms), kitchen adequately supplied for us, porches provided terrific views, modern appliances. We weren't at house enough to enjoy outside opportunities but the men did take a hike around property and found it to be beautiful. I must comment on a couple of things: be sure anyone using the loft isn't afraid of ladders or heights but it can be fun for older kids, found renter’s expectations upon leaving a little unreasonable (wash and dry towels, strip beds, one set of sheets in washer, dishes washed and put away). If you want an early morning start you'll need to plan to do some tasks the night before. Four-wheel drive was helpful getting up the steep driveway. This last comment is not the owner’s responsibility, but be prepared for a VERY, VERY windy road getting to property (don't try it if you get car sick). It was a long (more than an hour) drive into Asheville, a trip we made every day of our stay. I would recommend to anyone IF it were not for the distance and treacherous drive.
The property was amazing.
The property was beautiful and the owner was flexible with a couple minor things that we needed to change. I did wonder why we needed to do laundry for the linens when we were paying a cleaning fee, but that was minor.
