My place is right on the water at beautiful Lake Junaluska, close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and 20 miles west of Asheville, NC. You’ll love the location because of the views, the ambiance, and the outdoors. It's a perfect romantic getaway for couples and also works for a big family gathering. You may book the entire house (5 bedrooms, 5 baths with loft - can sleep 12!). The large front porch looks out over the lake, with a perfect mountain vista beyond. Since the house faces west, the sunsets over the mountain range and the lake are spectacular. Come to the cool, refreshing Smoky Mountains and relax!

About Melodie Galloway
I am a professor at nearby University of North Carolina - Asheville. Between us, my husband and I have 5 college-age children. Though I grew up on the east coast of Florida, I've now been in this area for more than 20 years. I am a professional musician, singer and conductor and love my job at the college and as the artistic director of the Asheville Choral Society. You should take in a concert while you're here! Husband, Art, is the owner and COO of Bearwaters Brewing Co. in Canton, NC. It's a great spot right on the river about 10 min. from Lake Junaluska - good food, libations and great community gathering place!
Melodie Galloway purchased this House in 2005
Why Melodie Galloway chose Lake Junaluska
We live in Asheville and periodically at this home at Lake Junaluska. We are the 2nd generation of owners in the large O'Neil family line. Art and I are both PK's of United Methodist ministers. As children, our families came up to Junaluska every summer and stayed in several different homes on the lake. We consider this house our family homestead and have just recently opened it up to guests. We love having folks enjoy our beautiful place and have a restful and magical time in the Blue Ridge Mountains - just 20 mi. west of the city of Asheville, NC.

Very nice property just as described. We had a wonderful time for the week even though it rained
We have stayed at Lake Junaluska many times and just has to be one of our best experiences. Thank you so much for providing a wonderful house to stay in and we were very blessed for this week
Great Location for a Conference at Lake Junaluska. Nice and clean inside. The vegetation around the sidewalks and drive way were overgrown so that complicated unloading/loading the van. The loft area was very warm, but we didn't nee that space, and everything else stayed very comfortable with the AC/Units and the fans.
Beautiful home and beautiful lake view
The house was lovely and spacious. Perfect for an extended family Christmas gathering. The owners were gracious and willing to help with any question about how something ran, turning on the fireplace, or where something was. The five bedrooms and bathrooms easily accommodated our large family. The big front porch was the ideal place for coffee in the morning overlooking the lake. A walking trail of 3.4 miles follows the lake's edge.
