Families have been drawn to the breathtaking mountain vistas and crystal clear waters of Lake Toxaway since 1903 when the Fords, Edisons and Rockefellers came by private railroad car.
Today, Lake Toxaway is a premiere resort destination offering rentals and second homes in several unique communities featuring the state’s largest private lake, a country club, golf and tennis, great hiking and fishing and homes and homesites on the lake, on the golf course, or on the mountain with dramatic mountain vistas.
