North Carolina's Lake Toxaway, high in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Elegant lakeside resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains


Nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and surrounded by over a million acres of national forest, lies Lake Toxaway, and on it, the Greystone Inn.

This outdoor and recreation paradise invites the adventurous. From countless roads and mountain trails, white water rafting and kayaking, to horseback riding, mountain biking, waterfall seeking and sightseeing the Blue Ridge Mountains, you can be assured that you will never be bored.

With over 500 miles of fishable rivers and streams boasting high populations of brown and rainbow trout and a wealth of other fish, this is a fly fisherman’s utopia.

The Lake Toxaway area has lured families for years, dating back to 1903 when the Fords, Edisons and Rockefellers arrived by private railroad car. The area is still enchanting but is now equipped with today’s modern amenities to appeal to current travelers of all ages.

If you are looking for a little relaxation, you’ll find that here too. The professional staff at the spa is ready to help you truly get away. Or enjoy sipping champagne aboard Miss Lucy, the 26-passenger mahogany launch, during an afternoon cruise on North Carolina’s largest private lake.

Natural Retreats offer two accommodation options at Lake Toxaway. The award-winning Greystone Inn has 33 guest rooms or if you are a larger family or group we have our signature Handpicked vacation homes and cabins surrounding the lake, offering a wide range of accommodation from 2 to 6 bedrooms.
