Welcome to Lake Junaluska!
The mission of Lake Junaluska is to be a place of Christian hospitality where lives are transformed through renewal of soul, mind, and body. This hospitality is provided to ALL persons, without discrimination.
Ideally situated in a mountain valley, Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center provides a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Escape to one of our lakeside hotels or relax on a front porch rocking chair, gazing at the lake and the panoramic vistas of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. You’ll enjoy comfortable summers, followed by glorious falls. While winter’s snowfall blankets local mountains, our valley is mostly mild and easy to access. Spring is always spectacular with the abounding beauty of trees and flowers.
Steeped in Wesleyan heritage, Lake Junaluska first opened its doors at Stuart Auditorium in 1913. As the conference center of the Southeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church we continue to celebrate partnership with The United Methodist Church. We host ministry events and concerts throughout the year. We are open to the public for group retreats, weddings, reunions, family events and vacations.
For more than 100 years, we have been a home for people seeking relaxation, recreation and renewal. Whether for a weekend getaway or week-long conference let us be your place in the mountains. Come and join us this year!
