Restful, peaceful, serene stay

  • 5 of 5

We were here in mid-October. The leaves were just beginning to turn, but the lake and its surrounding area were still fall-beautiful. Not sure how it is in the summer when I'm sure it's busier, but it was very peaceful and quiet while we were there. Just the right amount of crisp air a couple mornings was enough to remind you it was fall. Even though it was only a long weekend stay, we enjoyed every minute. We hope to be back in the future with the extended family.

Perfect mountain and lake getaway combined

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 days here over Christmas. It was a very slow time but exactly what i was looking for! The fire pit was used for s’mores almost every night. Having the boat as an option is really nice but we were gone almost everyday to the waterfalls, Highlands, Brevard, Asheville etc.. high recommend Shady Rest!

Lovely stay even in the coldest week of the year!

  • 4 of 5

Although we did not get to spend too much time outdoors due to the cold, we had a very lovely stay. The home provided everything we needed and when we did need them, the property management team was right there every time.

Thanks for sharing your home.

A great vacation on Lake Toxaway

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place to spend some time with incredible views and amenities. Comfortable home with everything you’ll need. Two decks over looking the lake, lake side fire pit and a good running and roomy boat. Great hosts who provide all the information you need. Again, a great time during our visit and hope to do it again!

Absolutely Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our vacation.

The house was beautiful, location was spectacular.

The covered porch, the dining table outside, thoroughly enjoyed.

The deck boat worked perfectly, I looked specifically for a

rental this year with a boat, really enjoyed it.

Highly recommend for anyone to enjoy.

Appreciate you sharing your home with us.

Steve & Sandy.
