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!

There one night for business in the area. Stayed at the Terrace Hotel in one of the renovated rooms. Had a great client dinner in downtown Waynesville... 6 mins away. Had to hurry in the morning so enjoyed coffee and pasty from the cafe right out the hotels front door. Look, it was a quick business trip and would have... More

This was our first time camping here, & we loved it! Very well maintained & great location. We had a campsite off the main road, which was very peaceful. The staff were friendly & helpful, & it was an overall wonderful place to stay. We didn't want to leave! The campground can accommodate any rig, & there are endless things... More

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 bought the meal plan for the dining room and found the food to be mostly good with nice staff. Did not expect to have to tip for the buffet... More

What a nice family place - the lake is beautiful with the mountains in the background! We enjoyed the paved path around the lake as well as the boat tour, and gardens (liked the native one the best). We stayed in the apartments which were dated but clean, convenient, and affordable. Waynesville is close by which is a very charming... More

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.

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.
