“The Lodge needs to " Step Up".”
Reviewed June 14, 2007

We have stayed in the Timberlake Rooms and owner rented Condo,s and have been pleased both. However, our Lodge experiences will keep us from Chetola from now on and stay in the closer proximity of Blowing Rock. Our room had badly stained carpets and were musty smelling. Toilet was broken upon arrival and should have been repaired after cleaning of room. A/C in room would not stay on and after calling front desk we were advised the system is tricky between the wall mounted temp. adjust and the A/C unit temp. adjust along with the window drapery of which blocks the air from the room A/C unit. Front steps had been painted or resurfaced and required everyone park behind the Lodge when the Resort was very busy and resulted in parking availablity problems to the Lodge.

The Logde in Chetola needs to " Step Up" and deliver equal dollar value to the resort.

My husband and I stayed at the Chetola Resort this past weekend, for a get-away, and the resort/our room exceeded our expectations. It was a fabulous stay in the Bob Timberlake Inn. I was expecting a nice resort, but I think what I found was actually a beautiful, first class property with a lot of charm and character. Our room was well-done, spacious, and comfortable. I would definitely stay at the resort again.

my husband and i just returned from a week at chetola, and i can tell you...it was wonderful! it is the most beautiful, peaceful place to spend a week. our condominium was great - clean furniture, appliances, linens. i got a massage at the resort - super-duper! my husband did some fishing in the lake for trout - caught several (but put them all back because he didn't know how to cook them - ha! ha!). the lake area is nice to walk around or sit by on a bench and read a book. the indoor recreation center is nice - the water in the pool and jacuzzi was "crystal clear". the resort in within walking distance to lots of stuff (tanger outlets, downtown). i would highly, highly, highly recommend this resort to anyone!

My family has returned to Chetola regularly since our first visit in 1990. The resort is clean, comfortable, and the grounds are beautiful! It is so peaceful there; although it is a convenient 5-10 minute walk from the lodge to a Tanger Outlet Center and a short drive to area attractions and downtown, you get the feeling of being isolated from the outside world. It's a perfect place to relax!

  • Liked — peaceful, clean, comfortable
  • Disliked — Nothing!
  • Tips/Secrets — It's close to lots of area attractions and right off the main road to downtown Blowing Rock

I took my fiance (then boyfriend) to Chetola for his birthday. We stayed on the Bob Timberlake Inn side (has 8 rooms). It was a wonderful experience! The staff arranged with the Inn Keeper to have champagne, balloons and chocolate in the room when we got there to surprise my boyfriend. The rooms are quite elegant and so comfortable - we didn't want to leave! The Manor House restuarant has a great chef. The rooms and grounds are so beautiful - we are getting married there next year!

  • Liked — Upscale Inn Rooms - great Staff
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — book well in advance - Chetola fills up fast!

We stayed at two hotels in Blowing Rock (Chetola only had availability for part of our stay), and this was the better of the two places (and we enjoyed both, so that says alot about Chetola).

Everything about the resort is perfect for Blowing Rock - mountain views, beautiful lake, great little cabin condos.

We dined in the hotel restaurant one night and loved it. We also enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. We had wonderful massages there as well, but don't go in expecting a spa -- it is just 2 massage rooms in the back of the gift shop!

We stayed in the cabin condos and felt everything was perfect. Very spacious and private, perfect for sitting on the back porch or using the fireplace and just getting away.

This hotel is an excellent hotel to stay and get away from the crazinest of reality. Nice and peaceful, and the staff was excellent. We stayed in a nice room with a fireplace and jacuzzi.
We had excellent views of the lake. The hotel has a pantry for quest including in lodging cost for when you need snacks or something to drink. Our room also came with free breakfast. We filled out our card and left it on the door and breakfast was brought to our room the next morning. They have onsite fitness center, indoor pool, massage service, movie rental, restarants, and other aminietes.
