    Lovely Lake Junaluska

    Although famed as a resort for Methodist Christians, Lake Junaluska has plenty to offer all sorts of travelers. Just look up and you'll see the forest-clad rises of the Blue Ridge Mountains soaring above the horizon, walking trails and campsites lurking deep within. Meanwhile, the blue waters of the lake itself offer boating and fishing, and there are manicured gardens and charming stone-built churches peppering the banks. Search for your Lake Junaluska vacation rentals to explore all that and more this year.

    Loving mountain life in Lake Junaluska

    Lake Junaluska vacation rentals are all about balancing the spiritualism of the mountains with adventure in the great outdoors. Some travelers will opt for contemplative meditation sessions in the inspiration gardens that pepper the water's edge. Others will tour the charming Methodist chapels and attend wellness conferences in the meeting rooms. Others will wax down the walking boots and hit the surrounding peaks, seeking out crashing waterfalls, whitewater rapids, bear-stalked caves, and dense American forests. And that's not even mentioning the boating trips and kayak rentals, the local eateries and festive markets at Christmas time.

    Lake Junaluska is packed with handsome attractions

    The Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center is what put this charming, chestnut-shrouded mountain town on the map. One of the major event venues for the Methodist faith in this corner of America, it's often host to speakers and workshops. Anyone can visit though, and it's certainly worth touring the pretty gardens and lakeside jetties. The heritage-rich likes of Lambuth Inn and neoclassical Shackford Hall are also both National Register of Historic Places worth photographing, while the World Methodist Museum means pious exhibits that are open to all.

    Enjoy spring in Lake Junaluska

    When the chestnut forests and multi-colored foliage around the Blue Ridge Mountains blooms in May, Lake Junaluska vacation rentals are often at their most coveted. It's easy to see why. Between then and late July, all the iconic hiking trails and mountain biking routes of the Great Smoky Mountains and beyond are at their finest, while temperatures in the 70s mean the perfect conditions for bobbing on kayaks, or lazing on the grassy banks soaking up the North Carolinian sun.

    Wonders of the Blue Ridge in Lake Junaluska

    Lake Junaluska sits shrouded by the Great Smoky Mountains to the north and the dense groves of the Nantahala National Forest to the south. It's an enviable location that few towns on the Blue Ridge can match. Strike out to wonder at the cascading Cullasaja Falls, or stalk the chestnut woods of the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. Or, go up into the heights of the Smoky ranges beyond the Maggie Valley, where you'll come face to face with black bears and elks amid the spruce forests and babbling creeks.
