We were headed to the beach when a wise gentleman said ' you must go to Chetola'. We found a true NC treasure nestled in these mountains. Charming, friendly, clean, with wonderful outdoor patio over looking a lake are just a few things that make this a treasure. If you want a place to have fun and allow you space to reflect of the blessings in your life- look no further. Thank you to the staff and proprietor who made us feel like this wasn't our first visit - we felt like we had come home.

I have spent a lot of time in the North Carolina mountains but this was my first time discovering Chetola. Blowing Rock is a wonderful place and Chetola Resort has taken advantage of all the natural beauty and enhanced it through careful development of landscaping and grounds management. Somehow as you drive into the gated community that is Chetola you feel stress and tension falling away. This is a timeless location that is truly refreshing. The accommodations are excellent and reflect a time gone by of relaxed fishing, skiing and horse riding. n fact we took advantage of the horse riding package and this was incredible. The best way to explore the local trails is on the back of a horse - which we did - traveling through over 8 mails of trails established by the generosity of the Cones decades ago.
Although we had planned to enjoy some of the local restaurants we found that the live music that was offered every evening, coupled with the incredible ambiance of the patio made eating at the Resort something we could not resist. The food was excellent as was the service. Each morning we enjoyed an incredible breakfast - another reason for the horse riding and the walks we took in the grounds. Well worth a visit - especially if you have to be in the area for any reason.

Room Tip: We had a room with a pond view - wonderful to wake up to the Swans on the pond - sunrise and sunsets...

My wife and I spent the month of July at the Chetola Resort. We appreciated the beauty of the grounds and the convenient location since we were able to walk to town as easily as to access a hiking trail.
In addition, there is an excellent restaurant attached to the hotel.
We will be returning to the Chetola Resort next summer.

Visiting Chetola Resort in the mountains of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, in mid summer, is a "cool" blessing to escape from the Florida heat. This is a beautiful 5 Star Resort with very pleasant accomodations sitting on the edge of a quaint little town. The peaceful surroundings with a pretty lake and white swans makes for an inviting entrance. The perfect weather averaging 65-80 degrees in July could not be any more perfect. Lots of things to do here for the active visitors, along with peace, quiet and laid back lifestyle for those inclined. This is a great retreat to get away from it all.

This is one of our favorite destinations in Blowing Rock! My husband and I love the Bob Timberlake Inn (which is a part of this property) and our entire family enjoys one of the condos on a yearly basis. There is so much to enjoy here - a great spa, indoor pool with ping pong for the kids, wonderful walking trails, paddle boats, lakes for fishing, and a nice restaurant. There is also the Tanger Outlets adjacent to this property, and Tweetsie Railroad is nearby. The property is large and can be explored for days. The hotel is nice but if you are looking for a great space for your family try one of the condos. They are well-appointed!

Room Tip: Talk to the front desk about the best condo choices for your family!

We made a reservation almost a year in advance for our son's graduation. We wanted a room facing the lake on the top floor. We were extremely happy with our room. The view from our balcony was made even better due to a wedding held lakeside.

I can't say enough about this place. The grounds are beautiful. Checkin was easy and the staff is very courteous and helpful. We stayed in the Condo Section (Boxwood 4) and it was very roomy and clean. The beds were comfortable and the entire layout of the condo was wonderful. Beautiful place. We did take the kids to the pool and was able to get some rest time while they played. Staff there was also very accommodating. Would recommend to anyone in the area.
