The hotel has been recently renovated and is by far the best hotel in the area. If your looking for a quite and well maintained hotel nestled in the Valley at Lake Junaluska, this is the spot. The rooms are on the same level as many 3.5 to 4 star hotels I have stayed in. The view of the lake...

A very great place and I have no improvements for the Terrace. Everyone friendly and kind. Also a great time if year for the music weekend. Only comment negative is that it was too cold in terrace dining room.

Balsam Range's Art in Music event (December 2-3) was such a success, partly due to the facility. The Conference Center provided an excellent concert venue, very good public rooms for Saturday's workshops, and very comfortable accommodations, at least in the Terrace building. The hotel even provided a wonderful two story lobby for an impromptu jam session Saturday evening after that...

We attended a weekend music festival hosted by the Center. Rooms in the Center are spacious, well maintained and appear newly renovated. Food was good. It is well staffed with friendly and competent people. Excellent site for a festival like this.

Great room, great food, great package pricing. Don't care for the cancellation policy though. The employees are super friendly and the hotel decor is so inviting. Will see you next year in December, Lord willing.

Traveled with church group to this wonderful facility. We were there on a Saturday for Appalachian Christmas with The Cockman Family. I am not a "blue grass" fan, but really enjoyed this multi-talented family. What a blessing! We had a buffet lunch at the Lambuth Inn prior to the show. Really good food and service. The Inn itself is beautiful...

We attended the first Balsam Range Festival and stayed at the Terrace. Accommodations were very pleasant and central to the festival site. Meals and serve were very good. Service personnel were gracious and helpful. Will attend the 2017 Balsam Range Festival and stay at the Terrace.

Lovely facility. Very friendly staff! Super coffee/gift shop right across the street. Our room overlooked the lake and that was beautiful. There is also a wonderful paved walking path around the grounds. We will definitely go back next year for this event.

All staff we came in contact with were friendly, courteous and efficient with one huge exception! The seat nazi in the auditorium for the Balsam Range concert was downright insulting! Heavy set woman, short hair, don't know her name. We unfortunately bought tickets and room separately before package was available. First day the concert was available to the public, actually....
