Lake Toxaway Country Club is an incredibly serene and beautiful wedding venue tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains about one hour from Asheville. It’s gorgeous inside and out, with many wedding weekend amenities that you’ll love, from separate open air rehearsal dinner space to the getting ready suites!
Let me start by saying that this place is incredible! From the moment you pull on to the property the lake views and mountain views scoop you up into a big hug. From here you drive along their private roads, winding through the forest trees, past a waterfall, and finally to a grand open space with the country club and golf course in view along the lake. At Lake Toxaway the air is clear and fresh, and the sun is warm, giving you that welcoming feeling in the mountains. It’s a perfect reception for not only you, but also for your guests.
The country club itself boasts both a bridal and groomsmen getting ready suite, the large Vanderbilt ballroom that is simply yet elegantly decorated with clean lines and is perfect for each couple to add their personal touch through flowers and decor. This ballroom can host up to 150 guests, and has the option for extra space in the adjoining room and large patio area. This patio area can also host a rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, and outdoor games, among other things. It’s an incredibly large space that is versatile to fit any couple’s needs.
A wedding ceremony can also be held on the patio or in the ballroom, but with Lake Toxaway’s outdoor ceremony options, you probably won’t look twice at indoor options. One of the most popular ceremony spots on the property is Lakeview Garden and is just down the hill from the country club right at the edge of the lake. It’s tucked in a quiet nook near The Greystone Inn and a few docks. The area itself is a blank slate so with adding decor like an arch, florals, vintage boats, and white chairs, the space can easily be dramatically changed to match your vision!
Another beautiful area for a ceremony (or even a rehearsal dinner) is at the Learning Center at Bear Wallow Springs. It's a wedding photographers dream! There you have a rustic building with gorgeous outdoor space and are directly next to the golf green. An open air rehearsal dinner on the green with mingling and dancing on the patio would be a perfect evening the night before your wedding!
Lake Toxaway Country Club is a full service wedding venue offering on site catering and cakes, planning and coordinating, and has The Greystone Inn next door as well as nearby home rentals for guest accommodations. It truly is an incredible property and venue, and is perfect for a mountain wedding!
