About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Cashiers Area

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 manager

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.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. Great for families. The home 4 bed/ 4 bath with extra sitting rooms. The property is easy to get to and located in a place. Split in between Cashiers and Brevard. A huge community lawn that the kids played on. The view was gorgeous. A snow storm came thru Sunday night and watching it was cool. The rest of the week was in the 70's. Lots of waterfalls, parks and shopping to do. We loved The Trout which is the restaurant at Toxaway Falls. Gorges State park was great with Rainbow falls. We went down 281 to Whitewater Falls and Whitewater Falls Equestrian Center. Those folks were great. Any age and any size person could ride. We took an 1 1/2 ride to Chimney Rock. The views were magnificent. This home was always so nice to come back to after a strenuous day of hiking. The home is a tri-level split so no one felt squished. Andy the owner is amazing and is very accommodating. Thank you Andy for the last minute choice. A choice that created many memories! We will return here again!

A beautiful and convenient lake front retreat.

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this rental unit. Its location on the lake is perfect for access to all Lake Toxaway has to offer. The lake is as pristine as any you will come across in the Carolina mountains. We had many guests coming and going all week and each one was WOWed by the beauty of the area. We did our dam to dam swims everyday. Hiked to several waterfalls (just note the hike into Whitewater Falls from the Duke Power station is longer than advertised on Web guides) and peaks for gorgeous vistas. We spent most afternoons on the rental boat tubing in Skiers cove. The owner's willingness to make the boat available to us saved quite a few dollars on renting from the local marina. (a plug for Tony at the marina - he is a wealth of local knowledge and very, very, very helpful in boat, lake and general local guidance.)

This house has all the gadgets you need for a restful vacation. We especially liked the Ninja blender. It makes awesome frozen beverages! We especially enjoyed late breakfasts out on the patio overlooking the docks and cove.

All in all we loved our time at the lake and this rental unit made it all that more enjoyable and restful. We will be coming back (soon I hope).

Our stay was like being at home only better; very nice and comfortable. The lake house is in excellent condition and very accommodating. We enjoyed the inspiring view of the lake and proximity to mountains falls and state parks. Be sure and visit the Visitors Center in Brevard and the new one at Gorges State Park. For bikers, Brevard is the Mountain Biking Capital of the South. We highly recommend this lake house at Toxaway ! Enjoy !

Beautiful lakefront mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous home August 8-15th, 2015. The house is clean with plenty of room and is equipped with everything you could want to feel at home. The views from the house are incredible, the walk to the lake is easy on a gentle sloping lawn. The lake is gorgeous and clean, the boat rental was perfect, fishing is outstanding. The house is conveniently located close to many activities and parks. The owner, Andy, is a dream to work with and always available and accommodating, very nice man. We will definitively be renting this house again. I highly recommend this property!!!
