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!

The room was very clean. The meals were very enjoyable. Inspiration Point (I would call this a garden) is unbelievable. This area is just above the famous cross at Lake Junaluska. I will be back again next year for annual conference.
