About Lake Toxaway
During the late 1800s, Western North Carolina gained national prominence as a vacation locale for wealthy families. Attractive for its fresh air, temperate climate, beautiful views and outdoor recreation, the area was made accessible by new railroad lines and made popular by well-known businessmen such as George Vanderbilt. In 1895, a group of investors from Pittsburgh formed the Toxaway Company to acquire and mine land, but soon turned to building a series of lavish resorts in the region. Soon after, the company dammed the Toxaway River to create Lake Toxaway and build the five-story Toxaway Inn on its shores.
In 1912, the Toxaway Company installed a 9-hole golf course located near present-day Lake Cardinal. Throughout 14 seasons, the Inn welcomed Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, R.J. Reynolds, the Vanderbilts and many other prominent individuals. Through the century, Lake Toxaway continued to grow its reputation as an upscale, beautiful destination for distinguished families.
Today, Lake Toxaway is a thriving community with approximately 1,100 home sites. Families share 5,000 acres where Mother Nature displays some of her best work year-round. Lake Toxaway Estates is surrounded by Hawk Mountain, Panthertail Mountain, Cold Mountain and Mt. Toxaway, along with several wilderness areas totaling more than 10,000 acres.
