October 8 – Lake Toxaway & Savannah

Fri. October 8

We left Polk City on June 3, 2021 and returned on October 20, 2021, travelled over 7,500 miles, stayed in 34 different campgrounds in 21 different states. And saw the most amazing places in America. We visited with friends and family along the way and that is why we do this!

Now that things have settled down a bit it is time to finish up the last few stops of our 2021 summer journey.

On October 8 we left the Asheville area and headed southwest 54 miles to the Mountain Falls Luxury RV Resort in Lake Toxaway, the largest private lake in North Carolina situated in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Located near Cashiers it is a short “mountain drive” to Brevard, Highlands, Hendersonville and the many mountain towns in between.

Mountain Falls Luxury RV Resort is an ownership resort for class A motorcoaches. Being “newbie’s” here, it appears the resort has a valley area and a ridge area. On the “ridge”, where you’ll have unobstructed views of the mountains, you’ll find RV lots priced in the millions. The “valley” lots currently are a little less. Owners rent their sites and we took advantage of a valley rental site, close to the clubhouse and their cascading waterfalls. The resort is beautiful and amenities and events abound. We were invited to several dinners at the clubhouse and Marcy participated in the Fall Classic Pickleball Tournament! She and her teammate picked up the 3rd place award! Not bad at all!!

We celebrated Marcy’s birthday by having a nice dinner at the Greystone Inn on Lake Toxaway. We love their motto, “There are endless things to do, although it’s perfectly alright to do nothing at all…” 

We’ll add Mountain Falls to our “places to return” list and who knows, may find a summer spot there some day. Of course we have a list of about 10 places we might want to make our summer base.


After 8-days in Lake Toxaway we set our compass southeast for Savannah, GA, our last stop. 

Sunset from The LakeHouse

We stayed at the CreekFire RV Resort. The resort has many amenities, several of which are the Lazy River, swimming pool and lake. They have large RV sites and an on-site restaurant, The LakeHouse which is very good. We’ll be back.

Established in 1733, Savannah is separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River. It’s known for manicured parks, horse-drawn carriages and antebellum architecture. Savannah is noted for its 22 squares, small parks arranged along five historic streets running north to south. Each street has from three to five squares.

Forrest Gump On The Bench

One of the most popular, Chippewa Square, features a large statue of James Oglethorpe, the city’s founder. The square is the location of the park bench seen in the 1994 film Forrest Gump from which the title character dispenses wisdom to others waiting for a bus. The bench was so popular that it has since been moved to the Savannah History Museum. Additionally, there were four other benches created for the film, one of which sits in the Smithsonian, two with Paramount Pictures, and one was gifted to a security guard who was on patrol during filming.

To get up-close and personal, we enjoyed a bicycle tour of Savannah which allowed us to soak in the town and history.

Savannah was the perfect “last stop” for our summer adventures.


We are already in the planning stages for next years sojourn. We have booked the October 2022 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and soon will have the July 2022 Calgary Stampede wrapped up. Then we’ll need to fill in the gaps! Hop in an RV and join us!
