Stayed in one of the apartments during a weekend trip to Waynesville. Very disappointed. Cobwebs visible over the pull out couch, linens were see-through, mattresses were like rocks. Shower had stains from dirty water drips and toilet had a ring around the bowl. Pipes must be very old as all water was brown and had to run awhile before it... More

I stayed here for a conference from Sept 24-27. This is the 3rd year I have attended this conference and it has been held here every time. The view of the lake is beautiful and there are lots of things to do within driving distance. The lobby is nice with lots of rocking chairs to look out over the lake.... More

Have stayed there three times and family loves it. Stayed in apartments each time which are not at all fancy but clean and have kitchenette. If you want something a little more upscale then stay in one of the hotels. Beautiful lake, grounds, nice facilities, a man made waterfall where bridge is with picnic area and stream down below.

Lake Junaluska provided an excellent location for our annual family reunion. Our large family was able to rent out an entire building, the Lakeside Lodge, which included a large common meeting area for everyone to gather. While the place is quite dated it was clean which is the main thing and the beds were comfortable. Very nice swimming pool area.... More

My entire family and our friends loved this place! Lake Junaluska offers economically priced cabins, dorms, apartments, motel rooms, and camping facilities. During the summer it is a great place to stay while exploring the Great Smoky Mountains. The meals were simple southern dishes that were cooked in a healthy style. The room accomodations are very simple but clean (no... More

I had the wonderful experience of visiting Lake Junaluska during the Applachian Christmas weekend activities. Lisa's review "Lake Junaluska: Jem of a Getaway" does a great job of explaining the experience. I echo her comments.
