The entire place
When a few visionary men dammed the Toxaway River in 1903 to create Lake Toxaway, and then built the five-story Toxaway Inn, a resort was born. A decade or so later, however – after a series of floods and tropical storms – the dam burst. And just like that, the lake (and the tourists) disappeared. It wasn’t until 1960, when Reg Heinitsh and a group of investors rebuilt the dam, restored the lake, and began attracting a new generation of visitors. Today, Lake Toxaway stretches out like an oasis in a naturally preserved mountain setting. It covers 640 acres and boasts some 14 miles of scenic, accessible shoreline. Because it was designed solely as a recreational lake – and is not used as a reservoir or hydroelectric source – it maintains a constant water level of 3,010 feet above sea level. It is at once the backdrop and the foundation of this sought-after community. It presents a cherished mountain living experience that serves as a welcomed retreat from the stress and frenzy of the everyday world. Isn’t this where you belong?
