My stay at Lambuth Inn far exceeded my expectations! First, as you can see from my photos, the view from my room of the Lake and the mountains was incredible! You won't get this type of view at this price range anywhere else. As a historic property, it admittedly could use some updates, but I was impressed with how clean... More

This was my first stay at Lambuth Inn. The room was lovely, spacious, and had a spectacular view! The restaurant in Lambuth Inn had fabulous meals, from orange glazed pork, to turtle pie! I enjoyed Lambuth while on business and will return for sure with the entire family! The hospitality is unparalleled!

This was my second time staying at Lambuth Inn, and I was quite comfortable. I had beautiful views out of my windows and found the room quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed the dinner and breakfast in the dining room (buffet style) and also took advantage of the nearby 24/7 exercise facility. Had the weather been warmer, I would have enjoyed... More

My husband and I were just driving through at night and needed a place to stay. We spotted the lights glistening off the lake and followed the road that led over the rickety one way bridge. Driving up to the Inn with the large pillars looked impressive - in the dark. I went in to check on availability and price.... More

This hotel is decorated in an antique traditional style. The decor looks delicate and taken care to honor the period. Consider that this is an older hotel with a very interesting history. Word of advice - don't plop into the the furniture in the lobby, sit gently. My original accommodations were at the Brookside Lodge with about 20+ other family... More

We have our yearly church campmeeting here at Lake Junaluska every May and this time decided to stay at the Lambuth Inn, not knowing much, if anything, about it. The Inn itself is over 100 years old, and the rooms haven't been updated much. We had booked a double bed room but found out that we had been given a... More

The Senior/Adult group, Pine Valley Travelers, visited Lake Junaluska on November 13 - 15. Our trip was designed to tour the Biltmore House at Christmas time. It turned out that the Lambuth Inn became part of the tour. Some reviewers have said that the Inn was less than what they expected, but our experience was that the staff goes to... More

My family only spent one night at the Lambuth Inn. We had booked a lakefront room with 2 queen beds, but arrived to find that we were not placed in a lakefront room. (I had originally booked online and later called to confirm the specific type of room as we were traveling with our 2 y.o. daughter). We were moved... More

Just spent a weekend at the Lambuth Inn and it was Ok. The room was small with two double beds. The placement of the desk/table blocked off part of the room. I wonder if this was formerly a single room with two double beds squeezed in. The bathroom was small, clean, but was supplied with small, very thin towels. The... More

We took a group of our older adults from our church here and they loved this place. The hotel sits high on the hilltop above the Lake and has great views all around it of the mountains and lake.
