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.

Winter or summer in Lake Toxaway

So, you've come to carve your way down the slopes of the Cataloochee Ski Area, or snow tube on the powder pillows of the Moonshine Mountain? Great. It's best to book those cozy Lake Toxaway vacation rentals in the winter months between December and March. And if you've come for the Appalachian hiking, water skiing, fly fishing, boating, and lazy days of kicking back on deck chairs under the roaring North Carolinian waterfalls, the summer is the top time to visit _ any time between May and August should be grand.

Lake Toxaway sits up in the hills

You won't have to look far from the doorstep of your Lake Toxaway vacation rentals to see why this waterside resort is considered something of a hidden jewel 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.
