Recent Renovations 

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.

Fabulous Retreat!

"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
