The Inn was originally the home of Lucy Moltz, who came to Toxaway and built a mansion on the lake and was only able to enjoy her lakeside home for one year before the dam broke. Built in 1915 and carefully restored in 1985, Lucy Moltz’s home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In her lifetime she witnessed the failure of the lake and then the rebuilding many years later. Today, the lake is in use by the families who live within the Lake Toxaway Estates.
