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

The lake is surrounded by mountains and is nestled outside of nearby Waynesville, N.C. just a short drive from Asheville, N. C. The retreat center has been renovated and... More

The double bed rooms at the Terrace Hotel really needed a deep cleaning as did all the windows on the hotel. Lovely grounds, nice range of amenities and a really cool auditorium. Did not eat at the hotel but went into Waynesville for dinner and can recommend The Sweet Onion. It was great!

We found the Terrace Hotel to be a nice spot for our family reunion. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we liked that the sink is outside the bathroom.

We stayed in the apartments which were dated but clean, convenient, and affordable. Waynesville is close by which is a very charming... More
