St. Andrews By-the-Lake was established in 1964 under the direction of St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Brevard, N.C. The first service at the Chapel was June 11, 1967.


In the 1970's the Chapel acquired a non-denominational character. Ministers from various denominations usually conduct services 14 Sunday mornings starting on the second Sunday in June at 11:00am.  For 2021, however, the number of services has been reduced to 13 due to Covid 19 with the first service starting on June 20.


St. Andrews By-the-Lake is located on Highway 281 North in Lake Toxaway, approximately 0.6 of a mile from Highway 64 West.


The mailing address is P.O. Box 62, Lake Toxaway, NC 28747.
