Land of the Waterfalls! Surrounded by National Forests, Lake Toxaway and Lake Cardinal are the ideal place to stay for the hiking enthusiast. Lake Cardinal is the exclusive section of Lake Toxaway Estates that afford the guest peace and quiet on a 'no gas engine' lake separated from Lake Toxaway by a dam, and for the use of Lake Cardinal residents only. Lake Toxaway is available for our guests via the Marina, where one can rent a boat by the 1/2 day, day or week to enjoy water sports on the 'big' lake.
Two of the area's favorite activities are hiking trails and exploring many of the 250 waterfalls located in our county, and of course boat rentals for water sports or cruising on the private waters of Lake Toxaway~North Carolina's largest private lake with 14 miles of shoreline and 640 Acres of crystal clear waters.
This home offers the best of both worlds ~ peace and quiet and adventure!
"Our family has continued to return to this fabulous home over the years. The decor , location and all amenities are just perfection. The house is situated on beautiful Cardinal Lake adjacent to Lake Toxaway. Cardinal Lake does not allow motorized boats so it is completely serenely quiet and peaceful. Having four bedrooms each with their own bathrooms is wonderful for a large group. The beautiful screened porch is amazing to sit and drink coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The view is amazing and a short walk to the pier where you can launch the canoe swim in the lake or fish. There are great areas for hiking right near this property in Panthertown Valley. The downstairs with the ping pong table is a great place for the children to hang out. The owners are delightful and so easy to communicate with. You will love your stay at this house. Perfection in every way!"

Beautiful home and accomodations!
"Staying in this home was an experience we all dream of. The property was clean and well-mainted. The pictures reflected the home's appearance, but nothing can prepare you for the beauty of the home and the scenery. The home is large enough to accommodate large families, and yet is intimate enough to sleep a few. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who loves to have access to all of the amenities you need, and yet enjoys being at one with nature. There are excellent places to walk."
"Our family spent a wonderful weekend here and we enjoyed every minute! The home is so beautiful and spacious. The house is emaculately well kept. We loved being on the lake and enjoyed the beautiful view. The huge screened porch is perfection! The owner was so great to work with and made our experience one to remember."
"This house is the ideal getaway Spring, Summer, and Fall. A peaceful and serene setting, it is fully equipped for family or houseparty gatherings, and very well furnished. There are multiple gathering places; our family's favorite was the beaufiful screened in porch. There are many activities available nearby and on the lake itself: swimming, canoeing, fishing, etc. With excursions to Biltmore House in Asheville a standout, an easy drive. We recommend it unreservedly."
"The most beautiful mountain home at Lake Toxaway with amenities galore! We had a family reunion there and had a ball! The surroundings can be totally peaceful or party time! The space is wonderful and the views filled with nature at it's best. The golf course is manicured to a tee!!! Going back to Carolina on my mind..."
Wonderful Family Vacations for Years
"Our family has been renting this house during the summer for the last several years. It is a gorgeous house on quiet, beautiful Lake Cardinal. It is very spacious and well arranged. The screen porch is amazing, with wonderful lake/mountain views, grill and plenty of furniture, table for dining, etc. The owners are extremely accomodating and helpful. Having 2 living spaces (one upstairs and one downstairs) is very nice for the generations to enjoy each other. The house is well-equipped and in very good shape."
Labor Day Visit
"This is a spectacular lakefront home. It is incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated and clean with all of the modern conveniences. It can comfortably accommodate 9 people with ample living space on two floors. It has a very peaceful serene setting with a wonderful screened in porch and Adirondack chairs on the dock. It’s a great family house with games, a ping pong table and more. There’s a lot to do in the area with wonderful hiking trails and the cute town of Brevard is close by for exploring. We look forward to staying in this house in the future."
Wonderful place to bring in the New Year!
"We went with another family for 5 days to celebrate New Years Eve. The house easily accommodate the 8 of us with room to spare. The views are beautiful and the home is lovely. We cooked out, played games, took hikes, even went ski tubing. The living room is huge and is open to the large dining room and open kitchen. The decor is so nice it must have been professionally done. It was a real treat to stay there and we hope to go back."
