Kick back and relax in Lake Toxaway

Hidden up in the valleys of the North Carolinian Appalachian Mountains, where chestnut and maple forests glow verdant green and ochre red with the changing of the seasons, pretty Lake Toxaway has been one of the state's premier resorts since it was first envisaged back in the early 1900s. Quaint and charming, it's peppered with timber-dressed mountain huts and luxurious Lake Toxaway vacation rentals with panoramic decks and waterfalls crashing through their backyards. Between days of boating and fly fishing, wild swimming and hiking, you're likely never to regret heading to this corner of the beautiful Blue Ridge.

Things to do

Lake Toxaway vacation rentals are prized for their proximity to the great American outdoors. Wonderful Appalachia and the misty Blue Ridge Mountains dominate the horizons all around, representing just one corner of the legendary Nantahala National Forest.

The wilds of the Gorges State Park are also just a stone's throw away, offering gushing rivers, creeks, and boardwalk hikes. Meanwhile, the Lake Toxaway Country Club has 18 holes of golfing enjoyments, along with tearooms and tennis courts to boot.

Lake Toxaway sits up in the hills

The Blue Ridge Mountains erupt in maple-clad valleys on all sides, streaming waterfalls occasionally pouring out from breaks in the tree lines and babbling down to the Lake Toxaway surface below. The vast reserves of the Nantahala National Forest are just to the west, too, offering countless trails that weave between its old-growth woods, not to mention heart-thumping river rapids for those eager to hit the dinghies.
