My husband and I enjoyed every moment. We went on a treacherous but fun hike to Raven falls. We had wonderful dinners at the many quaint towns around the lake house.

I have great memories of coming to Lake Toxaway and surrounding areas since I was a little girl and it was wonderful to bring my husband and share my love for the mountains. I hope your experience at my parent's lake house brings as much enjoyment and love of the beautiful mountains as it has to me.

My family and I spent 1 week at the Lakefront Mountain Retreat located on Lake Toxaway. The experience was truly wonderful. The location is great with easy access to a community dock and boat that we rented with the home. Sitting on the deck of the home which looks out onto to Lake Toxaway was fantastic. We spent a lot of time on the boat tubing with the kids and taking slow cruises before dark. The house was located near some great hiking trails, a horse farm where we went riding, a great camp where we enjoyed zip lining and golf courses where we played golf (including the Lake Toxaway Country Club). The home is also very conveniently located near a couple of great restaurants including the Brown Trout where we had a wonderful dinner. All in all my family and I had a fantastic time and highly recommend the home for anyone who loves the mountains and lake.

This place has it all -- beautiful view, well-maintained fireplace, comfortable beds, pontoon boat, hiking trails, and great restaurants and shopping nearby. We've rented this lovely home twice and recommend it highly. The area is easily accessible, with a nice place to park and no cliffs to accidently drive over. There are several breath-taking waterfalls and parks a short drive from the house. This home will definitely remain on our short-list of places to return to time and time again.

Wonderful home for four couples. Beautiful view and access to lake. Location was excellent for all of the areas activities. We were pleased that we could go right to the dock and put in the canoe and kayaks. Had an outstanding long weekend with a superb meal at Madisons in the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands.

One Week Vacation November 2007

Thank you so much for kindly sharing your Toxaway home and boat with us.  It was a precious time with my elderly parents, my brother and sister-in-law and our Louisville crew.  It was their first time meeting their great granddaughter.  We all really enjoyed the beauty of nature there.  The slow boat rides were just enough diversion.  The weather was perfect.  Thank you again!


One Week Vacation in July 2006

Your home on Lake Toxaway is great.  My entire family enjoyed every minute of the week.  It definitely made my parents 50th Wedding Annversary one to remember.  We even talked about making it an annual event.  Thank you for letting my family enjoy your home.  We can't wait to come back!


Two weeks Vacation in the Fall 2002

Two great weeks! The leaves put an incredible show for us. We hiked, shopped, rode the parkway, went to crafts show in Asheville, watched Alabama beat Tennessee and had a great boat trip on Lake Toxaway. Your neighbor Joe was wonderful. He blew the leaves from our driveway and took us on a boat trip. We had a week with relatives from California and a week alone. You home was perfect for a crowd or a couple. You've done a great job of elevating a "rental" to a home. Thanks for a well equipped kitchen. We had enjoyable meals with several cooks amongst us. Yes, we had everything we needed! My husband appreciated your comfortable mattresses and your never ending water heater. You have a wonderful home which exhibits a lot tender loving care. Thanks for sharing it.


One Week Vacation Summer 2002

Where Heaven touches the earth there surely is Lake Toxaway! Rented a canoe and explored every drop of the lake. My boys, 3 year old twins, loved to fish off the dock and from the canoe (and sometimes from the dock). My wife soaked in the relaxed atmosphere and forgot the world for awhile. As for me, myself and I, Is this place for sale? Ha! Ha!

What a wonderful place to have a family vacation! Our three groups from Michigan, Indiana and South Carolina met for a relaxing week of family fun.
