A $3.2-million update brought Lambuth Inn to the modern expectations of guest comfort, while preserving its historic charm. Throughout the renovations, the team worked to retain the historic nature of the hotel by using period furniture that matched the 1920s architecture and by keeping the elegant look of the lobby and parlor. Modern conveniences such as refrigerators have been added, and a number of rooms now have amenities such as walk-in showers. To make specific room requests, book your reservation by phone at 800-222-4930, Option 1.
Approximately 20 rooms in the middle back section of the hotel only received an upgrade in bedding and are sold at a lower price point than the renovated rooms.
Carry the joy of Christmas with you all year round. A visit to the historic Lambuth Inn isn’t complete without a stop at Christmas Memories, the faith-based Christmas shop located across from the front desk. You don’t have to wait until Christmas to stock up on ornaments, snow globes, angels, nativities and more, so step inside for a bit of Christmas cheer any time of the year.
Nestled around a 200-acre lake in the mountains, Lake Junaluska feels worlds away but is close to top Western North Carolina attractions. Enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment in nearby Waynesville and Maggie Valley. Drive less than 15 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway or Great Smoky Mountains National Park, or drive 30 minutes to Asheville or Cherokee.

"...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..." - Bo Hart, TripAdvisor Review, November 2020
"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!" - Seemore66, TripAdvisor Review, February 2020
