Lakeside Bistro

Lakeside Bistro

For the safety of our lodging guests, the Lakeside Bistro at The Terrace Hotel is now offering continental breakfast boxes instead of a hot breakfast buffet. Our front desk staff will be happy to provide you with a continental breakfast box each morning of your stay. Hot coffee is always available in the lobby. 

For groups who have booked an event at Lake Junaluska that includes a hot breakfast buffet, the buffet will still be provided along with any other dining or catering services that have been purchased.

Continental breakfast boxes for hotel guests are offered as part of Lake Junaluska’s commitment to follow the safest possible practices in response to COVID, particularly during this time of renewed outbreaks.

Clean, beautiful mountain lake stay

"...The Terrace was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and the location was excellent. The common areas were comfortable, especially the rocking chairs that overlook the lake..." - Ie782015, Tripadvisor Review, September 2020

Convenient and clean hotel

"...We stayed at The Terrace because it had a convenient location not far from the visitor center of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This was a good base to stay at while we explored the area, including the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hotel and our room was incredibly clean..." - salsalisa, Tripadvisor Review, April 2021

Clean and Updated!

"...My friend and I enjoyed our stay, and I'd definitely stay here again. All the staff working here (from check out, cleaning staff, and in the dining area) were very friendly and helpful." - LeslieinTN, TripAdvisor review, March 2021
