For years now, The Sunset Inn has had a history of hosting family reunions. In fact, we host some of the same families from year to year. The inn has a reputation of being a place where families can relax and enjoy the company of one another. Adults can rock on the front porch, sit by the fire in the living room, enjoy a relaxing massage, or take a leisurely stroll around the lake. Children can play freely and safely inside as well as outside. On the Lake Junaluska grounds there is also boating, swimming,, and, in the winter, just a short drive away there is snow skiing.

Full country breakfasts are included in your stay. We can prepare your other meals as well - perhaps a relaxed outdoor barbecue would suit your family - or a seating at our fine dining restaurant, Lillian's on the Lake.

Let us be your "home away from home." There is a minimum of a two-night booking to reserve the entire inn, so make plans now to reserve The Sunset Inn for your next gathering.
