Welcome to Lake Toxaway Estates!
Lake Toxaway, the largest privately-owned lake in North Carolina, was once the setting for summer getaways for some of the nation’s wealthiest and most powerful people. During the 1960s, this scenic mountain community underwent a transformation, and today it’s one of the most sought-after places to live in Western North Carolina.
While there are no age restrictions, many 55+ adults choose Lake Toxaway Estates as either a place to spend their retirement years or a place to buy the seasonal vacation home they’ve always dreamed of. Either way, this Transylvania County community boasts beautiful views and scenery; quality homes, luxurious amenities, and easy access to cities like Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville.

Each home in the community is unique and designed to fit every budget, taste, and lifestyle.

Lake Toxaway Estates Amenities
The amenities alone are enough to make Lake Toxaway Estates the number one choice for adults seeking an active lifestyle in the mountains. Of course, there’s the country club, complete with a Tom Fazio golf course that showcases the area’s unspoiled beauty. It also features a restaurant, golf learning center, fitness center, pool, tennis courts, and spa. There’s an open-air arena that hosts summer concerts, a 40-acre green space, hiking and biking trails, a playground, and a soccer field.
Despite all these amenities, Lake Toxaway itself remains the community’s focal point and most beloved attraction. The 640-acre manmade lake is the perfect place to spend the summer boating, fishing, swimming, exploring the 14 miles of shoreline, and creating memories to last a lifetime.
Shopping and Dining
Lake Toxaway is, in a way, its own little community. You’ll find a few small restaurants along the outskirts of the neighborhood, along with a few stores like ACE Hardware and a small post office. Head west to Cashiers, North Carolina to shop for groceries at Ingles or a few miles northeast into the award-winning city of Brevard, where you’ll find grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, places of worship, and everything else you need for day-to-day living. Residents also enjoy taking the hour-long trip into Asheville for even more shopping and dining opportunities.
Parks, Green Spaces, and Healthy Living
Lake Toxaway Estates provides residents with plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors, from taking a boat out on the lake to hiking the community’s trails and open spaces. But there is much more in the surrounding area to explore. Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, and Gorges State Park surround the community, providing even more places for biking, hiking, fishing, and wildlife watching. The area also offers several scenic drives that are especially popular when the fall colors take over the trees.
While the fresh mountain air and crystal-clear waters of Lake Toxaway often feel like enough to keep residents healthy and happy, there are many doctors, dentists, pharmacies, and other medical services nearby in Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville. Transylvania Regional Hospital is approximately 18 miles from the community.
