History of The Greystone Inn

In 1965, Heinitsh Sr. purchased the old Moltz mansion for use as a clubhouse for his new Country Club. When the clubhouse was moved to a new location just up the hill, the historic home was sold.  In 1984, Tim and Boo Boo Lovelace purchased the property and formed a business partnership with the Lake Toxaway Company to form “The Greystone Inn.”  Following an extensive renovation, the mansion was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and The Greystone Inn opened its doors on July 15, 1985.

The Greystone Inn todayQuickly becoming known for its resort amenities and relaxing setting, The Greystone Inn has continued to expand and improve over the years.  In 1988, six cottages originally owned by the Inn were sold and replaced with the Hillmont building containing twelve luxury rooms.

The Lakeside Dining room was built in 1990 to replace the Inn’s original dining room and kitchen, and the Lakeside Cottage was completed in 1995 with two luxury suites for guests and a pampering spa on the lake level.

The Lovelaces retired in 2005, but son Clark Lovelace carries on his family’s tradition in his role as the Inn’s general manager.

Today, the Lake Toxaway Company continues to operate the Inn with the same historical charm and exceptional hospitality. The Greystone Inn offers accommodations with a full breakfast, afternoon tea and hors d’oeuvres, a champagne cruise aboard the mahogany launch, “Miss Lucy,” and a six-course gourmet dinner.  Guests also enjoy lake and mountain recreation, access to the Lakeside Spa, and a temporary membership at Lake Toxaway Country Club for the length of their stay.
