Tim Bright is the head of Preserve at Rock Creek, and he said "we have just cleared and opened the lot of upper Rock Creek. This is the most wonderful spot we have uncovered". The upper section of the mountain is where a former Lodge existed. It is an historic building that dates back to the early part of the last century. The lodge was taken down during some time in the 1920's, but Mr. Bright and his company have recently cleared the site and have constructed a road that provides access to this sensational lot. It will without doubt become the most delightful Western North Carolina real estate. Mr. Bright said that he expected a good amount of interest in this and the other lots available. Any one interested should him Toll Free on 800.259.3551 to arrange a viewing.
In the early part of the last century, the Asheville Press said the following regarding the location - "The view from this Lodge, which is on the extreme summit of the Toxaway mountain, is most extensive. The magnificent character of this view baffles description. Its grandeur and sublimity can only be fully appreciated by those who have seen it in person and felt the soothing magic of its silent but irresistible influence."
Historically, the Lodge was a "Nature Kindergarten" for children in the locality to discover and find out about the environment and wildlife that is indigenous to the area. The lodge was also used for hunting and recreation for leading figures in the country, including the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Edisons, Fords, and many others.
The history of the region (Toxaway Mountain in particular) is reasonably extensive. In 1890 E.H. Jennings came from Pennsylvania to Transylvania County and established several businesses, one of which was the Lake Toxaway Company. Later, towards the end of the 1800's, Southern Railway constructed the Railway System from Asheville, which became the steepest railroad in the U.S.
In 1902, Jennings filled the Lake and opened what was to become the most popular Toxaway Inn. Lake Toxaway was the first artificial lake built in the Appalachian Mountains, and the area became known as the "Switzerland of America". It encompassed several outstanding resorts, and was called the Toxaway System of Hotels. They were created by Jennings, including "The Lodge" at the top of the mountain- where the Preserve at Rock Creek is currently situated
