We took our youth group to the youth Programming at Lake J for the 4th year! It is always an amazing trip! The Lambuth Inn is always very accommodating to our group! It is a beautiful and peaceful property.

The inn is very beautiful. The lobby is amazing and well decorated. The rooms are old and outdated but that is to expected knowing how old the place is. I love old historic things so the room was just perfect for my liking. The food they have is very good. Outside they have rocking chairs that you can sit in...

My room was VERY comfortable and warm being the weather was extremely cold outside. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and the food was EXCELLENT. The ambience is very homey and I really enjoyed all of the Christmas decorations in the many small conversion areas.

As grandparents of teenage boys attending the Art of Music Bluegrass Festival recently, we were quite impressed with the Lambuth Inn and the services: good food, clean rooms, beautiful decorations for the holidays, and helpful staff. The Shuttle service was one of the best things so we didn't have to fight for parking spaces! We will definitely consider doing this...

This Inn on Lake Junaluska is a beautiful treasure for Haywood County. We went up for a weekend getaway and the 1st Balsam Range Art of Music Festival (a new tradition we hope!). The inn is beautifully decorated for Christmas and is quite a gem. We would love to return next weekend for the Christmas festival. The onsite dining hall...

The Lambuth Inn sits on the west side of Lake Junaluska, part of a Methodist resort. The hotel is a grand old "dame", built in the late 1920's. It is a huge hotel with very long hallways. Rooms were clean. Decor is from the 1980's and probably could use some updating. We ate breakfast and dinner in the dining hall...

If you want the Embassy Suites with cushy, modern froo-froo, please book there. It's awesome. But this is its own kind of awesome. The parlors feel like Grandma's house. The rooms are clean and functional and all you need with the bonus of walking out and seeing the beautiful mountain-valley lake. It's like staying in a village, rather than a...

I was given a room in this Inn during a conference because the conference hotel was full. Thanks!! I had a lake view room. Very comfortable, nice beds. The real treat was that it is such a beautiful building and grounds. The first floor has different rooms and nooks with antiques and history everywhere. The grounds are full of flowers...

This is a grand old hotel, part of a Methodist conference center, that served as the base for a Road Scholar tour of the Great Smokies. After an initial snafu on our room ( which quickly got straightened out) our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The dining room was excellent on breakfast and dinner , although the sack lunch they...
