Contest: June 1-18, 2018
Thanks to the recent reopening of The Greystone Inn, you don't have to own a house on the pristine Lake Toxaway to enjoy it. The largest private lake in North Carolina has 14 miles of shoreline at 3,010 feet elevation. Stream-fed waters from high in the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests makes it one of the cleanest lakes you'll find.

Perched on a knoll overlooking the lake, Greystone Inn has 30 well-appointed guestrooms, restaurant, bar and spa. After being closed for a few years, new owners Shannon and Geoff Ellis completed a major renovation and reopened the resort in May 2018.
Find an endless list of things to do - or just sit by the lake and do nothing at all.
Explore the lake by kayak, canoe, paddleboard or the evening cruise on Miss Lucy. Since the turn of the century, people have been drawn to Lake Toxaway including the Fords, Edisons, and Rockefellers. In 1915, Lucy and George Armstrong built a Mansion on the lake that became a luxury inn in the 1980s.
All of the guest rooms and suites at Greystone are newly renovated. Located in both the historic mansion and the lakefront Hillmont building, some have fireplaces and lake views, others private entrances and lakeside terraces. Guests also have access to the adjacent Lake Toxaway Country Club with championship golf, tennis, croquet and boating.
The seasonal menu at the Lakeside Dining Room is inspired by nature. The wall of windows overlook the lake. Also, unwind with evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Mansion’s Lobby Bar
The winner will also get a tour for two at Killer Bees Honey Farm high in Pisgah National Forest above Lake Toxaway. The 3-hour tour includes a honey tasting / pairing and putting on a bee suit to handle the bees. You can take the tour during your Greystone Inn vacation or another time.

Since you will be in the middle of the “Land of the Waterfalls,” find many hiking trails and gorgeous cascades including at nearby Panthertown Valley, Gorges State Park and Toxaway Falls. Explore quaint downtown Brevard with galleries, local shops, great restaurants and local brews. You can even tour a bee farm in your own bee suit. See below for a full list!
