We stopped on the way south for a quick visit as part of their fall foliage special. We got exactly what we expected. It is older and rooms are smaller, but it is clean and well-kept. Breakfast was included in our package and was excellent. We would definitely stop again.

My room was in the front with a delightful view of the lake. It was clean and good value for the money. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. They had in room coffee and iron. The hotel is for those who love the old fashioned furniture and decor of the 40's... More

Friendly staff, wonderful food and quiet meditation time. The weather was perfect an=d rooms clean and tidy. We all had a glorious time of meetings and renewing friendships. I would recommend this to any of my friends. I sure am looking forward to our next visit to Lake Junaluska.

The Lake and surroundings were beautiful, the staff we very kind and helpful! We stayed at the Lambruth Inn on Inspiration Pt.. Built in the 1920's it had the large white columns and some upstairs verandas with rockers! I loved the detailing of the word in the office/check-in and meeting area. Our room was small, but sufficient and clean.

This is my third trip to Lake Junaluska and I stayed in Lambuth each time. The check-in clerks were very helpful and rushed things along even though I, of course, was responsible for being late. I cannot say enough about the restaurant which has excellent food and an extremely accommodating staff. The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff polite.... More

This is one of the best service experiences I've had in recent memory. I'm not saying it's the Ritz but if you want kind service, cleanliness and a stunningly beautiful view, you cannot beat the Lambuth Inn at Lake Junaluska.

This place is nothing special. The decor is very out of date; I feel like I went back in time to 1990. The rooms are also very dark. The place is very clean with good service but this place needs an update. Desperately! The food served is very average as well.

Thanks for your review. We know the decorations in Lambuth Inn aren't the most up-to-date, but a lot of our guests tell us they like the oriental rugs, period furniture and overall historic feel. Our other property, The Terrace, offers a more modern atmosphere and new renovations. We encourage you to come back and try The Terrace! Best, Mary Bates,... More

Lambuth Inn at Lake Junaluska was a joy to stay in. You must know parts of the Hotel is 100 years old and the various lobby settings are of period furniture but so lovely...The setting by the lake is gorgious and the flowers are beautiful. Meeting rooms were comfortable and the food is the Best part...

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!
