Why the Owner Chose Lake Toxaway: : Living mostly just outside of Washington, DC and having to suffer with those hot sticky mid August heat waves and poor air quality days had us traveling to the mild and clear air of Western North Carolina. It didn't take long to fall in love with the environment and the beautiful scenery of the mountains. We decided to build our large family home in the mountains with a great view of a waterfall to accommodate our family.

About Ronald Atkinson

We met as childhood sweethearts and have been married for over 40 plus years! During that time we raised six children. We retired and have close ties to the Washington, D.C. area where most of our children are still located.

Ronald Atkinson purchased this house in 2006

Why Ronald Atkinson chose Cashiers Area

My wife is originally from northwestern NC so building this beautiful home in western Carolina was a natural choice for us. We love the scenery and tranquility of the mountains and surrounding waterfalls.

What makes this house unique

When we bought this property years ago we had a vision to build a home that would be comfortable for our family. Later we decided to open our home to guests so they could enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and natures beauty are family so enjoyed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your fabulous home to the our family! The view, amenities, accommodation, etc. were wonderful! Our extended family of 10 enjoyed Headwaters Outfitters (float trip). Smoke Rise Gun Club (skeet), Pisgah National Forest, Sapphire Brewery, Town of Cashiers & town of Brevard! Would highly recommend all of these to future guests.

Girls Trip

  • 2 of 5

I want to first say that the house is awesome and we really enjoyed the house! I was with 13 ladies for our annual girls trip. We usually go to the beach, but this year we wanted something different. We were gone during the day and enjoyed the house late afternoon and night. With that being said, the owner would only return 1/2 of our deposit because he said the house was dirty.........we did everything on the list that was required by us and the house was not he put it. My cousins live in Brevard and came to visit one night with their was in the house for maybe 10 minutes and the owner said there was dog hair in the house and that is one of the reasons he kept 1/2 deposit. He also knew how many people we had in the house and who was going in and out. That was a little creepy to us ladies. We adjusted the thermostat in the house when we first got there and he was not happy about us trying to lower the temperature. The house was hot and had not been used the week before

We loved the location of the house and the house was awesome! His email back to my friend after the stay was not too nice........I am sorry we will not use this house again, because it was an awesome house! Watch for the yellow jackets under the porch......

Owner's Response: I started to write a long response with a rebuttal of all the inaccuracies of their review but have decided to take the high road with my response. I will let the 97 prior reviews and the many many positive comments of the house and me personally speak for themselves. Yes I am disappointed with this review because we value our customer service. Our guest should expect great customer service and we should expect great honesty.

A fantastic weekend in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in this home! We came together as a family to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Our family ranged from 92 to 18 months, and it accommodated all of us very well. We especially enjoyed the basement that had easy access from outside which allowed my grandmother to move safely in and out of the home. We laughed as we played cards and fuse ball, and equally enjoyed our time on the deck and watching the sunrise over the falls.

It was an easy drive to my parents resort and on to Highland's for a day of shopping and eating!

I would do this again in a heart beat.

Thank you Ron for sharing your lovely home with us.

Another Awesome Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that my friends and I have used this house as our base camp for a golfing weekend in the Lake Toxaway/Sapphire Valley area. The house is outstanding. The view of the Lake Toxaway Falls are amazing (particularly this year with the foliage better than average for the entire WNC region). I can't use enough positive adjectives to describe the house, the set-up for about any scenario, working with the owner in the rental process (twice now and both times easy as pie)... just trust me, you need not look any where else! This is IT!

Owner's Response: It's awesome to have our return guests have the same or better experience than before. The views are amazing and we try to think of everything our guests will need, from paper products, linens, firewood, kitchen supplies, etc. and we recently put new mattresses throught out the house. Most of all, we want our guests to have a relaxing, enjoyable home. Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to a return visit.

Perfect for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My brother rented this property for a family reunion. The house was perfect for accommodating 8 people. It is well stocked and beautifully decorated. The hot tub was a big hit as was the outdoor fire place. The Wi Fi worked like a charm which is not always the case. The view from the house could not be better. There is nothing like seeing the Fall colors next to a waterfall that is close enough to hear the sound of the falling water. Very peaceful.

Owner's Response: The best part about our mountain home is the view particularly during the fall color season. We're happy our home exceeded your expectations. We particularly enjoy the hot tub and outdoor fire place also. We've had great family memories around the fire. It is very peaceful and we're glad you felt the same. Please come back in the future.

Fall Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (10 adults total) stayed here to see the beautiful NC mountain fall colors. Our stay was wonderful. The house is fabulous, and met all of our needs. We enjoyed grilling dinners, the large jacuzzi, and watching the stars by the outdoor fire pit. The view from the deck is spectacular, and there is much to do in the surrounding areas. We loved the day trips to Highlands, Lake Glenville, and Cashiers. We were only there for 4 nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. There is enough to do in the area to stay busy for a couple of weeks.
