Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

If you like mountains, lakes, golf, hiking, and great accommodations--this is the place.

Spent plenty of time around the fire pit with golf views. Excellent house and attentive owner.

We will be back.

This mountain home is total perfection! Relax and enjoy, everything is ready and waiting for you!

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated on the Lake Toxaway golf course. When you open the front door and enter you are awed by the phenomenal view through the massive 2 story floor to ceiling windows. The grounds are very well cared for with a small stream running through the property with a quaint little bridge. This house is beautifully decorated with a huge stone fireplace, comfortable furniture and fabulous mountain antiques and collectibles! The house is emaculately maintained and spotless! The home is very well appointed with a fully stocked kitchen, beautiful dishes, and plenty of pots and pans. The bedrooms all have an adjoining private bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable with luxury linens and towels throughout! Our experience was far from a rental but much more like being invited to a friends home!

The owners could not be more cooperative! They helped us in every way! We feel like old friends and can't wait to return!

BLOWN AWAY

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely gorgeous and amenities were above and beyond our expectations. The views and scenery were breath taking.

My family and I enjoyed our week in the summer time and are already considering another stay in the fall.

Access and communication with the owner before during and after our stay made for the entire experience that much more comfortable and enjoyable.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY!

Well appointed Toxaway Golf home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving week. The home is well designed for a small to moderate size family. It is beautifully decorated but would probably not be ideal for small children. There is a fabulous fireplace and plenty of wood. If you need satellite TV and internet it is available. Our interaction with the owner was via internet and telephone; there were no significant issues. Only negative was the propane heater on the deck was not working and the propane grill was marginally working. We would stay here again!!

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un moment paisible en amoureux dans cette maison très accueillante. Nous ne sommes pratiquement pas sorti et avons pu nous ressourcer dans le calme et la sérénité devant de bons feux de cheminée ou quelques films. La décoration est très riche et chaleureuse. Les lits sont incroyablement confortables. La cheminée apporte un réconfort tranquille. Et rien ne manquait dans le chalet.

Le propriétaire nous a répondu très vite et il a pris la peine de savoir si tout se passait bien pour nous et si nous ne manquions de rien. Il nous a conseillé des adresses et des endroits où se balader. Il était très attentif.

Nous ne faisons pas de golf mais le chalet est idéalement placé tout en étant caché à l'orée de la forêt.

Après une semaine, nous avons même reculé notre départ d'une journée malgré la pluie tant nous étions bien ici. Quoi dire de plus ?
