2020 Travelers' Choice Award: Top 10 Percent of Hotels Worldwide
Stay lakeside at The Terrace Hotel, the perfect place to relax in a rocking chair on a balcony overlooking the lake and mountains. You will be steps away from all of the lake activities and amenities. Included in each stay:
New! The Lakeside Bistro restaurant inside The Terrace hotel with lakeside dining in our spacious restaurant and on our outdoor heated patio. See the menu.
The Terrace is also a great place for meetings, banquets or receptions. Learn more about hosting meetings, weddings, family reunions or events at Lake Junaluska.
The welfare of our guests and staff is of utmost importance. We are taking enhanced sanitation and cleaning measures and promoting social distancing across the grounds to support Healthy & Safety During Your Stay..
Lake Junaluska is being lowered in early 2021 to allow for the removal of silt, repairs, maintenance and cleanup that happens every few years. The Terrace Hotel, Lakeside Bistro, Junaluska Gifts & Grounds, Lake Junaluska Golf Course and the Walking Trail and gardens will remain open, and the lake should be full again by Easter.
Nestled around a 200-acre lake in the mountains, The Terrace at 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. Ask about our Biltmore Estate, rafting and ziplining packages!
