Spring Mountain
Lake Getaways

Lake Junaluska is a wonderful spring mountain getaway nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

With roses budding on the Rose Walk, daffodils and tulips blooming across the grounds and baby ducks testing out the waters, our spring season is full of new life and new beginnings.

Our lakeside village is the ideal spring destination for nature walks, birdwatching, shopping, fresh mountain air and so much more.

Stay at the contemporary Terrace Hotel or historic Lambuth Inn this spring season and experience the Blue Ridge Mountains in bloom.
