Absolutely wonderful!

"...We stayed at The Terrace and it was absolutely wonderful! The only thing we did not like was that we had to leave sooner than we wanted to!..." - NeciaJoy22, Tripadvisor Review, July 2020

Beyond expectation

"...We stumbled upon a description of Lake Junaluska when looking for a Thanksgiving holiday venue, and discovered this little paradise of resort. ..." - Tovah W., Tripadvisor Review, December 2019

Peaceful easy feeling 

"...My favorite thing was the beautiful Lake also across the street and the walking trail around it. Mountains were also on all sides And since there were no city lights The stars shone brightly at night." - Captain, TripAdvisor review, September 2019
