If you're looking for a quiet, spectacularly beautiful place for a great family vacation, rent a cottage at Lake Junaluska. My family has been doing this for 20 years, and it is a value you simply can't compare. The cottages at Lake Junaluska are actually the retirement homes of Methodist Clergy. Since Methodist clergy live in parsonages, they don't have homes to live in when they retire, so they purchase homes at Lake Junaluska and rent them out during their working years, and then retire to them at the end of their career. These homes range from brand new state of the art homes to more rustic older homes, and the price ranges are incredible (approx $350 - $800 per week). That's a fraction of the price you'd pay for a week at the beach. Lake Junaluska has a large swimming pool, paddle boats, a nature conservatory, a HUGE contingent of ducks to feed, and it is situated between Maggie Valley and Waynesville (like 5 minutes to each), and about 40 miles from Asheville. If you prefer staying in a hotel, the Terrace Inn is just as nice as any Holiday Inn, and the price is right! Single rooms are $65 per night during the peak season. The Lambuth Inn is just as nice. Want to see the leaves? There is NO more gorgeous location in the world. This is the perfect GET AWAY for you or your family! Just look at this picture! Then go to lakejunaluska!
