3BR/2.5BA-Sleeps 8-11-Lake Junaluska

Your log cabin is tucked away on a cove and meadow area of Lake Junaluska. This 3 bedroom and 2.5 cabin has everything you need for a perfect, peaceful vacation. The kitchen has all of the amenities of home including fridge, microwave, coffee maker, stove/oven, and dishwasher. In addition, the kitchen is stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. The cabin has central heat and air although with the cool mountain breezes you rarely need air conditioning. The front bedroom has a day bed and a trundle bed.

In the middle bedroom there is a Queen size bed with an en suite bathroom that has an antique claw foot tub and shower combo. The back bedroom has a queen bed, a set of built in bunk beds and a convertible sofa. Just outside of this room, there is a full bathroom. There is a sofa bed in the family room. The family room is a great place to gather to play board games or just curl up on the couch and read a book. The family room has one of the 2 high definition satelite flat screen televisions. In addition, the cabin has free WI-FI. A fireplace with gas logs in the family room keeps you toasty warm on chilly evenings. Enjoy grilling out on the back covered patio where a gas grill and picnic table are provided. You can dine out rain or shine on the patio. The front porch is a great place to overlook the front garden with gorgeous flowers, birds, and butterflies. Coffee and grits on the porch in the does not get any better than this! Road access to the cabin is easy and there is a flat driveway for parking.

The cabin is located on the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center. It is a great place to stay for the many conferences, retreats, and meetings that Lake Junaluska offers throughout the year. The cabin is 1 minute from Stuart Auditorium and Terrace meeting rooms.

At Lake Junaluska, there are many activities and amenities for you to enjoy.

In the summer, the Olympic size pool is open and the pool is built to give you the illusion that you are actually swimming in the lake! Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats can be rented in the summer from the aquatic center. Shuffleboard, mini golf, basketball, volley ball and tennis are also great activities at Lake Junaluska.

Fishing is permitted with the proper fishing license. There is a public boat launch. Electric motors or paddles must be used on the gas powered boats or personal watercraft. Several docks are located around the lake for your fishing pleasure. The playground is open year round and is an awesome place for children to play and frolic. There are also covered picnic tables. There is a paved 2.6 mile walking/running path that encircles the 200 acre lake. The views of the mountains are stunning. Enjoy viewing the ducks and swans along the way! This path is great for strollers too. You will want to take your camera along to snap some pictures of the lake and mountains. The Rose Walk is a must see at Lake Junaluska. It is a portion of the trail around the lake and there are numerous rose bushes with a rainbow of color. Don't forget to 'stop and smell the roses'.

The Lake Junaluska golf course is just 5 minutes away. Enjoy the 4 seasons of the Smoky Mountains!

About Ruth or Ted Singletary

Ted and Ruth Singletary were born and raised in Charleston, S.C. area. Ruth's family always vacationed at Chimney Rock, N.C. and Ted's family camped in the Great Smoky Mountains. Ruth visited Lake Junaluska as a child and returned every summer to the beauty of the lake. In 1991, Ted and Ruth began bringing their children to Lake Junaluska. In 1996, our family purchased an inn at Lake Junaluska and have spent our summers at Lake Junaluska ever since then.

Ruth or Ted Singletary purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Ruth or Ted Singletary chose Smoky Mountains

Lake Junaluska holds a special place in our hearts. It is a place where you can refresh, relax and renew your spirit. There is nothing more spectacular than sitting up by the famous Lake Junaluska cross and watching the sunset at over the lake....priceless. Our cabin was the original bookstore at Lake Junaluska and was built in 1925. It has been a labor of love restoring this cabin to bring it back to it's original beauty.

What makes this cabin unique

When we first stepped inside the cabin we both said, 'It feels like home!'. The cabin is in a quiet section of Lake Junaluska but just a 2 minute walk will have you at the Lake's edge taking in the panoramic view of pristine Lake Junaluska. We love rocking on the front porch!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the cabin for a week so that we could ski at Cataloochee Ski area. The cabin is in the perfect location! Located only 11 minutes from the slopes in Maggie Valley, we could ski and then come back to the cabin to rest and cook meals. Having our own kitchen saved us tons of money!! We enjoyed our family time around the fireplace in the evenings. We will definitely be back next year.

It was great.

The cabin had everything our Confirmation Retreat needed, and we were treated well by the owners/managers. I'd recommend it to any group of 10

Very clean and very quiet ! Great for a family stay or cozy couples retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed are two day stay. The cabin was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of room for all. I have grandchildren of all ages. The bunk beds were perfect for the older kids and my step son and his wife also have a baby. My oldest son was getting married the next day so had room for all his groomsman to get ready before the wedding.

Peaceful, tranquil, and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect. I was in the area for work, and needed a quiet place to rest after a hard day's work. The surrounding area is gorgeous; the beautiful lake has a really nice running/walking trail around the shore with breathtaking views! The cabin's kitchen was fully stocked with everything you might need to prepare a delicious meal (with the exception of a corkscrew ;). I was by myself, but the cabin could easily accommodate a family with several kids. I will definitely look for this cabin again if I'm ever in the area again for vacation or work! The hosts were very accommodating. A++!
