This is a beautiful lake surrounded by a religious retreat. We stayed at the Terrace Hotel which is centrally located. The room was nice with a flat screen TV, double queen beds, and bathroom. The cleaning staff could be better about making sure the hair is picked up off the bathroom floors. Other than that no cpmplaints, tje staff is... More

Few views in North Carolina compare. With lake in the foreground, mountains in the background, and rocking chairs on the porch this setting has it all. A walking trail around the lake plus tennis, swimming, and lots of other activities available there's no excuse for not getting out to enjoy it all. Lodging options vary so there's something for everyone.

Booked a room at Lambuth Inn for scenic view. ...NOT..can't see the lake from all the trees! Room was small with two full size beds with a stain on one bedspread. ...did not realize this was a evangelical setting where religious conferences were being held. Off the beaten path from Maggie Valley as well. Hotel needs updating, way to much... More

We have spent many family church retreats at this property. The property fits in with the way the groups want to pay (we think it is a pay after the fact rather than before) which is helpful for how these church groups work. The conference center itself is really nice and has plenty of rooms for breakoff groups. The sleeping... More

We've been coming for many years. It is beautiful. However, the facilities are dated and need a lot to bring them up. They are trying and doing a little more each year, but it is a Goliath of a project. Bathrooms in Stuart auditorium are horrible. Knowing they were hosting 2500 people you would think they would have cleaned the... More

I enjoy my annual trip to Lake Junaluska every November for a church meeting. I have only had 2 bad experiences there. 1 was because of a meeting itself, the other was because of poor planning and accommodating by the staff due to a large group using the facility. The food has steadily improved over the years. I am excited... More
