We stayed at the Lambuth Inn as part of a church reunion. The rooms were a little dated, but very comfortable. All staff members were helpful. The stay included all meals at The Lambuth, all meals were very good and the wait staff was the best. The scenery was just breath taking and beautiful. We plan on coming back next... More

I love staying at The Lambuth Inn. It is very.comfortable and the safest place you could ever visit. It is a wonderful little community with a bookstore and coffee shop. They have a trolley that runs by several different stops. I love the view at Inspiration Point of the lake and the cross.

We reserved rooms at the Lambuth Inn and reserved their International Room for my mother's 90th birthday. This old Inn takes you back to the past when you walk in. It is beautifully decorated with antiques but yet has modern comfortable sofa's and chairs to relax in. We had over 70 people there. Some staying more than the weekend. We... More

I loved staying at The Lambuth Inn when I have events at Lake Junaluska. It is such a beautiful place! I love to just sit by the big cross and look around the lake! No matter how stressed I am, just sitting by the cross restores my peace. I am looking forward to coming back!

Visited Lake Junaluska as a part of a tour of The Hidden Gardens sponsored by Tuscola Garden Club on July 2, 2916. Although we did not check in the Inn, we visited the adjacent Inspiration Point. This garden offers not only beautiful flowers but views of the Smokey Mountains, the backdrop of the lake, with the Junaluska Cross

If you're used to going to hotels you'll really have to have a long talk with yourself about the fact that this is a retreat lodging. :-) Even when I drove up to the building I had to keep checking my gps to be sure I had arrived at a place to sleep... this place was such a relaxing "home"...

Hi rking3170, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay so much! It always pleases me when people truly seem to "get" the Lambuth Inn... It is a much different environment and feel than you would experience in any other hotel- definitely a "home-like" atmosphere!

This was not my first stay at Lambuth Inn. I have stayed here several times, but this review is similar to those I would have left after previous stays. Overall, this is an excellent place to stay.

If you love to stay places that are unique and charming (not your average "chain" motel), you will love The Lambuth Inn!
