This property is a part of a 100 year old hotel that is beautiful and still has the furnishings and feel of the period. You feel you have stepped back on a more genteel period of time. The people are so helpful and wish only to make you have a wonderful stay.

Awful! They put us in an old dorm with lots of stairs! The door knob about fell off when my husband put in the key. To change to another place was $50 plus more! Not happy!! Miss leading add where we thought it would be lakeside room. Even the more expensive room is only lake view from 6 floors up.

This was about my 25th. year coming and the third year that I have brought my "grands" along. This year we stayed in Lambuth Inn, which is beautiful, but we felt far away from most of our... More

We stayed in a condo on Lake Junaluska while visiting with friends who live in the area. What a beautiful backdrop to this mini-reunion. The pool was clean and nice. The lake path led me on beautiful run. One morning. We hope to visit again soon.

Stayed two nights with a meals included package. Enjoyed the relaxing pace and lovely accommodations in the newly renovated Terrace Inn. Will definitely go back again. Maybe next Christmas. The dining room overlooks the lake with beautiful sunset views. The meals were served buffet style. Our stay was for the 4th of July weekend. There was a parade around the... More

The fireworks show is excellent. The fireworks last for approximately 15 minutes. The last minute is awesome! The Lake JUnaluska Singers come out onto the lake on a pontoon boat at 9:30pm directly after their concert in the Stuart Auditorium singing the Star Spangled Banner right when the fireworks start. We attended the Lake Junaluska Singers concert on Friday night... More

Would defiantly recommend this hotel. The lake is beautiful. Our boys were able to paddle board on the lake and had... More

Lake Junaluska has the rustic charm of a mountain retreat, but all the amenities to feel like a first class hotel. Beautiful landscaping and views, lots of things to do and it will make you feel relaxed and peaceful. I loved the lighted cross overlooking the lake at night!

Before I give my review, I need to really respond to the reviewer from Atlanta who was lost and thought there was a bait and switch (or whatever?). I am sorry that you experienced a hard time getting here. Nothing is worse than just not being able to find what/where you are looking for. So, I can appreciate your frustration.... More
