DO NOT book Lakeside Lodge. The Terrace is the nicest building with decent rooms. Due to last minute booking I accidentally booked Lakeside Lodge without looking at the details. We checked in late after visiting few places and dinner around 10:30 pm. I got the keys and got to the building. There were no cars in the parking lot and... More

We got a room with a decent view of the lake. Convenient location, close to Waynesville and Asheville. Beautiful promenade is perfect for jogging or walking when the weather permits. There are, however, some caveats. Major noise from the AC systems in the rooms. You get additional noise from the commercial AC units located on the roof of the building.... More

My family (with two young children) stayed in the Lakeside Lodge. It was pretty basic, but clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff is friendly. We enjoyed walking around the area, especially our morning walk to breakfast at the Terrace (which was fine). The entire center is beautiful, the views from any given spot are breathtaking. My daughter loved the Rose... More

I was disappointed with the accommodations for Lambeth. My son and his family stayed in a less than adequate room. I told the reservation center that the family was 5 persons, 2 adults, 1 teen, 2 children. The bed for the adults was terrible. We had to get a roll away bed to place on top to gain enough support...

They had no idea about the reservation, but trip advisor sent email confirmations and follow-ups asking for reviews of the place. I never got to stay since the reservation was messed up, but the people there weren't helpful. I'm jst glad I called befoer... More

Lake junaluska is a beautiful location for a youth retreat. Our kids love it and they are safe. Everything is clean and neat... The cafeteria food is really good. Be sure to walk up to the cross and watch for the sunsets. I would definitely come back next year.

The area is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the apartments. The rooms could use some updating but we were comfortable for the short time we were there. It was nice that they were all on the first floor. The weather was beautiful and they have rocking chairs in front of the rooms.

Had to find and alternative to our WV ski road trip and we stumbled on to The Terrace @ Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat. We were 6 families a total of 24 and stayed for 5 nights. The lake was a real retreat of tranquility, as you either strolled, jogged or just sat in a rocking chair looking at it!... More
