About Sharon Drake
I am an interior designer based in Asheville that travels the world for work and play. Lake Toxaway was a place where my family spent a lot of summers to get out of the Florida heat. This cabin is where my husband, my dog (does not get on any furniture!) and myself go to unwind from our busy careers. It is a special place that we share sometimes with family, friends and occasional renters.
Sharon Drake purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Sharon Drake chose Lake Toxaway
When I was living in South Florida I found this cabin out hiking with some friend who had just moved to the area. I had come to Lake Toxaway numerous times as a child to get away from the Florida heat. The waterfalls, rivers and vistas are stunning. I immediately fell in love with this cabin and it's location. Once it became available I jumped right in restoring the old chestnut logs, updating the mechanics and of course, making the interior as wonderful and comfortable as possible.
What makes this Cabin unique
There are log cabins all over the world for rent and some are fabulous. Many though have other cabins right next door and no real peace or privacy. When I truly want to relax I need to be connected to nature and away from most people. When you drive in to the woods down this long private road and see the cabin setting on a ledge up the driveway you will know you have arrived. You also do not need to leave with the wonderful trails and stream.

Perfect little cabin
This little cabin is rustic enough to feel like a true getaway while having most of the comforts of home. You can stay for days and not see a single person or drive a short ways for food, hiking, sightseeing. We will definitely be coming back again and again.
Hi Lainey and thank for your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed everything and the cabin was exactly what you were looking for. Please come back anytime.
What a fantastic mountain cabin getaway!! Perfect location. Centrally located to so many fabulous locations in the mountains.
Serenity at its finest
My wife & I were looking for a place to celebrate our 7 year anniversary & found this beautifully small cabin nestled in the woods off a beaten gravel road. We stayed for 3 nights & 4 days. The first day we were able to walk the roads, trails & even hang out by the creek below the property. The next few days we visited Cashiers, & Brevard. Our last 2 days it started sprinkling & raining, what a wonderful place to be cooped up with your significant other during a storm! We will definitely recommend to friends & we will be back!
Hello Jonathan! Thank you for spending your anniversary with us and for taking the time to write such a nice review. We appreciate your thoughts and to letting us know how things went. I agree; it is a special place, especially on a rainy and soulful day! Come back to see us any time.
A little gem!
We had a really nice retreat in this beautiful mountain cabin. Very serene!
Perfect spot to get away!
Very private peaceful getaway! We enjoyed the entire week. Wonderful central location to go hiking and see the beautiful scenery. Short drives to get to neighboring towns. Great place to escape and relax. Very comfortable, private with all the amenities needed to enjoy your stay.
Cozy, Quite, and secluded
Just what we were looking for. Off the beaten path yet a short drive to town. Clean and well maintained. Easy in and easy out. Would like to stay there again!
More waterfalls than anywhere else in the US
