The home is situated near Whitewater Falls, the tallest waterfall in the eastern United States, and directly on Lake Toxaway, the largest private lake in North Carolina, which has an area of 640 acres and is at an elevation of 3,010 feet.

About Andrew Susemichel

I am a mechanical engineer and president of an energy engineering company E-Max. My family and I need a place to get away to relax from a high stress work atmosphere. Lake Toxaway and the lakefront mountain retreat is ideal for private relaxation on the largest private lake in North Carolina.

Andrew Susemichel purchased this house in 1994

Why Andrew Susemichel chose Lake Toxaway

We stayed at vacation places nearby at Fairfield Lake in Cashiers NC and decided we wanted our own lake vacation home. Lake Toxaway is the largest private lake in North Carolina and one of the few lakes that the lake level changes a very small. Other lakes levels change because of hydroelectric power plants etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The most restful and beautiful vocation of our life. We enjoyed the incredible view of the wide expanse at the center of the lake from the great room and deck.

Going to White Water Falls was a real treat. Seeing the white squirrels and flying squirrels were truly amazing wonders of nature. Never before have we enjoyed God's beauty in nature in so many different ways.

We enjoyed cruising the lake in the deck boat provided with the lake house. Nothing beats seeing the entire lake from the deck oat. Both of us and our friends really hope to visit your lake house again.

Thanks for everything.

Excellent Mountain Experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

A wonderful place to relax, reflect & rejuvenate.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and we could not have enjoyed it more. The description and pictures on this website make you want to come here and we were not disappointed. The property is not brand new but is well maintained and very clean. Everything works as it should and communication with the owner was easy and he was very responsive.

If you imagine what a mountain lake would look like this is it. The lake is pristine and the property that is around it is all well maintained and attractive. The lake is small as lakes go but large enough for any type of boating activity. The boat is perfect for enjoying the lake. Our visits have both been in the fall and the lake was never crowded. There is plenty of room for four couples or a large family with bedrooms on three levels. There are many places nearby to visit as far as parks, shops and recreational opportunities. My only problem with visiting here is that I never want to leave.

A Great House in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this house twice in the past year and several times in past years. My wife and I usually go in the winter months; we love the mountains at that time of year because there are no crowds. My passion is fly fishing and there are great streams to fly fish in the Western Carolina Mountains and winter is the greatest, no other fly fisherpeople. The property is clean, well maintained, and the owner (Andy) is the greatest I have ever leased from in his responses to the guest needs. Last November 2014 he accommodated my wife and I and our guest by keeping his boat in water that we might tour Toxaway Lake even though we were pushing the season for taking out boats.

Always plenty of firewood, very important at that time of year.

My recommendation go early, go late, go often, it is amazing if you like the mountains.

Great house and beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 4 couples who have been renting every January for the last 4 or 5 years. Our intention is to relax and enjoy each other. What a great place for this!! And we have a beautiful view as well! As you can imagine, with so many people there is a lot of coordinating that needs to be done. Every time Andy is quick to email or text back with answers. He is also available via email, texts, or phone calls during our stay should we have any problems (or more questions). The house is older, but is very clean. All in all, great experiences every year. Great house. Great views. Great homeowners to work with. Highly recommend!! Thanks Andy for dealing with us each year with such patience!! The "Friday Night Gang"

Lake House on Center of Lake Toxaway Gets Better

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Lakefront Mountain Retreat several times. The Hurricane Deck Boat with the 150 HP Yamaha outboard is awesome. It pulled the two on the float so easily. We like the new four space parking area so every member of our party has a parking place. Thanks for the new 60 inch HD TV in the family room. We will definitely be back next year.
