It’s So Pretty in the Mountains



After our first June in Florida we (Nancy) were ready for some cooler temps and lower humidity. Hello Mountain Falls, a luxury motor coach resort in Lake Toxaway North Carolina.

Living in the flat lands of Illinois and Florida, driving a coach pulling a car through the hair pin turns of the mountains is a little nerve racking.  It’s a challenge in the car let alone a 60 ft plus vehicle!  After Alaska last year this seemed like old hat.



We have been there before and continue to enjoy this resort, this area and learn more about all there is to do. This resort has a nine hole course with a paved golf cart path.  Every morning, Nancy, Fred and the pups would start out with our trek through the golf course.  Did I mention we are in the mountains?  Not a walk in the park kind of hike.













Lake Toxaway is in Transylvania County, they boast the most waterfalls in the US. We had a chance to see some amazing ones.



In addition to walking the course we did have a chance to play a beautiful mountain golf course.



One day we visited Flat Rock NC the new home to our friends Britt and Heidi.  You may remember them from the famous Britt IA post of last year! Here is a pic on the way to there house.



During the trip to “The Land of Waterfalls”  we learned so much more about the area that we decided to change our return trip to visit here again.

Next up – our trip to Chicago for the wedding!

  1. Hi Nancy & Fred,
    Steve & I stayed at Lake Toxaway years ago, we were above hole #1 on the golf course. I played the golf course and Steve rode along. There is also a beautiful resort higher up, I forget the name of it, but it has clay tennis courts and High Tea everyday. I’m going to really enjoy reading and see your travel posts. Makes me want a motorhome again. Safe Travels!

  2. Hi Fred & Nancy,
    The name of the resort outside the RV resort is called The Greystone Inn. I do remember you turn left out of the resort, and it’s a couple miles further up the mountain on the right. I also remember this resort offers boat rides from their hotel, on a restored antique wooden trawler. They also have a golf course. I hope you can find it, worth a drive if nothing else.
    We also enjoyed the side trip to the Biltmore Estate and Winery in Asheville.
