Imagine relaxing in a private balcony, your living room or outside on a dock with impeccable views of the lake. Welcome to Lake Toxaway Landing #5. This contemporary lakefront house in the mountains offers unbelievable beauty. It is located between Highlands and Brevard (near Cashiers, NC), about 45 minutes from Asheville. 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. Lake Toxaway's elevation provides mild year round weather, making it ideal for swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, sailing, and water-skiing.
Lake Activities: At Lake Toxaway, you can enjoy swimming, sun bathing, kayaking, fishing (with proper license). The lake is all fresh water, fed by numerous mountain streams, and is always refreshing! We have a spacious, gently rolling lot going right to our private dock with a 22-foot deck boat you can rent on a daily or weekly basis. The boat holds 13 people. It has two bass seats, a trolling motor and a live well. While there is no guarantee you will catch a fish, one group caught a 26 inch Walleye!

These books contain information about nearby restaurants, craft and antique shops, numerous hiking trails, waterfalls, horseback riding stables, white-water rafting and information about snow skiing.

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.
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.
