For 25 years, The Greystone Inn has been accommodating travelers with our unique & luxurious property.  What first sets us apart is our location.  The inn rests on the shores of Lake Toxaway, the largest private lake in North Carolina, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  At 3000 ft of elevation, we are blessed with four incredible seasons, featuring an average high of 80 degrees in the summer, and amazing foliage in the fall. 

Of course, our location is only the beginning.  Guests are offered an incredible number of ways to spend their time.  For the active traveler, there’s always something to do – golf, tennis, lake activities, fitness center, hiking, and more.  For those who are looking to rest & relax, we have plenty of options as well – full-service spa, champagne cruise, or meeting new friends during afternoon tea.  And, let’s not forget about the world-class cuisine! 

Turning our incredible location and countless activities into a true hospitality experience is our friendly staff.  Each of our employees is committed to the yes creed, which means “yes is the answer, what is the question”.

We look forward to the opportunity of having you as guests in our home and hope to hear from you soon!

Lake Toxaway has accommodated discerning guests since the days when industrialists such as Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and Thomas Edison visited in the early 20th century. Those days are locked in Lake Toxaway's history, but the same splendor and luxury can be found in today's guest accommodations at the Greystone Inn. Visitors may choose from three venues for guest accommodations: The historic Greystone Mansion - 17 guest rooms ideal for those seeking a warm, quaint, bed & breakfast type of experience, Hillmont - a more recent addition featuring lakefront Jr. Suites with more of today's modern comforts, and Lakeside, 2 Luxury Suites on the shores of Lake Toxaway with a living area separated from the bedroom by panel doors.
