Nice place to stay. The room is comfortable, and the property is beautiful. Eat in town. The restaurant food is not good, nor always available. We wanted a cocktail at 8 p.m., and the bar was closed. I got the impression that the food service was an afterthought and something the property felt that they had to offer but didn't really want to.

This was our 3rd year in a row that that we spent time at Chetola Resort during Valentine's week with another couple. We stayed at the newly renovated Timberlake Inn, which was awesome. The included afternoon wine and cheese; and the daily breakfast was fantastic. Service was great as well. We will definitely be going back to Chetola in the future.

Absolutely wonderful, peaceful resort. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated, the staff was excellent and the resort amenities included in the reasonable resort charge were extensive… from morning Yoga to pickleball, etc! The onsite restaurant was very good too. There was some fire alarm testing going on while we were there and we received calls before and during our stay from the staff to let us know. Outstanding attention from the staff!

A lovely stay in a lovely hotel in a lovely town. And it snowed! Staff were friendly, responsive, and always available. This was off season so staffing was sketchy in the restaurant and pub but the service was excellent. The breakfast waffle - YUM. Most meals taken in the pub and I was cared for by the BEST bartender, PK (?). He really cared about every aspect of his service: the drinks, the food, the cleanliness, etc. What a great hire for Chetola and I hope you can keep him happy! As a solo traveler I always felt safe and the place was immaculate. I'll definitely be back and have shared this info with many others who want to wander to the beautiful NC mountains.

This resort has the most incredible staff and great amenities. We had snow for several days and the maintenance crew was out, keeping all the roads clear and putting salt on the steps. Our grandchildren love sledding on the hill, and going to the pool. The restaurant and pub stayed open during the bad weather, and were almost the only place we could go for a meal.

I just checked out from the hotel where I stayed for 3 nights with my family during MLK holiday. We really enjoyed the time we spent there. The room we stayed was very clean and comfortable, it was renovated and had a view to the lake. Comfortable beds, good quality sheets and towels. The staff was polite, the restaurant is always busy, so you have to be a little patient some times, but the food is good, nice ambience and our waiter was sweet and competent (thank you Bryson!). The purpose of our trip was to ski at Sugar Mountain, so we didn’t experience any of the hotel activities besides the pool which the kids really enjoyed! Would definitely go back to Chetola!

Stayed at Chetola Resort in one of the two- bedroom condos. We loved the spacious unit and the location was superb—- close to grocery store, shops and restaurants. There was even a wood burning fireplace.

We always look forward to a return visit. The resort itself is beautiful. Accommodations are comfortable, whether we choose the lodge or a condo. It’s clear the management pays attention to detail. December is a special time at Chetola with the entire property decorated. 2 outdoor firepits; one just outside the bar/restaurant is mostly couples/adult’s. There is another one by the lake with amores for the kids. Property is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Blowing Rock and short driving distance to Boone and area, ski resorts, historical sites and hiking trails.

This Inn was classy. Breakfast included with room service or restaurant. Housekeeping every day. A pantry with coffee, tea, water, soda and the best ice cream, all free for your taking. A wine social at 5:00 with snacks. Offers fly fishing, clay shooting paths for walking. Downtown Blowing rock minutes away. Highly recommended
