We’ve always wanted to check out Lake junaluska as we see the signs every year going down the interstate. So glad we decided on this facility for our stay. Just a very pleasant, clean , well managed place. From sign in to check out everything was perfect. Front desk was very helpful and informative. Bed was very comfortable and clean. Will definitely be back when in the area again

Hotel's Favorite
Having grown up spending summers at Lake Junaluska with my family, I have always dreamed of staying at Lambuth Inn! I gave myself a "personal retreat" for three days and thoroughly enjoyed the location, the views, the quiet, the wonderfully accommodating personnel, the lovely room---everything was absolutely what I needed!

We traveled to Lake Junaluska to see the fall foliage and visit with friends. We've been going to The Lake fifty years but this is the first time we've stayed in the renovated Lambuth Inn. The room had a wonderful view of the lake and mountains and was very comfortable. Even with Covid-19, we found it to be safe. The staff is friendly and doing a great job of providing warm and inviting hospitality.

If peace and quiet is what you are looking for this is the place to stay. I recommend reserving a room with a view of the lake. Definitely take walking shoes and enjoy the walking path around the lake.
