While an earlier review for this home was negative, we read the description discussing the recent renovation and decided to give this rental a chance and boy, are we glad we did! The remodel is superbly done and the condo is very tastefully decorated. Amenities abound with comfortable beds, fireplace, super-fast wifi, washer/dryer, full kitchen, nice resort views and more. All of the finishes were high quality and Chetola Resort is super convenient to all the attractions around Blowing Rock. We have come to Blowing Rock every year for many years now and this is our favorite stay. We really want to thank the owners for creating such a nice little haven and for sharing it with our family. 5 Stars!

Coming from the beach of SC to the cool and beautiful Blowing Rock, NC is always a treat. The condo was recently remodeled and beautifully done. We have stayed at Chetola many times over the last 15 years and enjoy a great location, good amenities and this condo was perfect for us. With allergies always a problem, the tiled and non-carpet floors were greatly appreciated. The kitchen was supplied better than most rentals and we both enjoying cooking, even when not at home. Would certainly request this unit again.

Chetola Cardinal 101 is now my favorite place to stay in WNC! The condo has been impeccably updated with stylish decor and a cozy gas fireplace. (I actually enjoyed the rainy weather we got on our third day since I got to read by the fire that have an awesome dinner at Chetola's cozy bar!) The condo's layout is great and that it is spacious so that everyone can enjoy time together but still have comfort and privacy. And the bed/bedding is incredibly comfortable- I tried to peek and see what brand the mattress was since I slept so well! I've never stayed at Chetola before since it seemed that a lot of the condos are a bit outdated from the pictures, but this one caught my eye and I'm so glad. The location is perfect - you can easily walk into downtown Blowing Rock, or head right out the patio door and hit all of Chetola's beautiful trails. My only concern with Cardinal 101 is that it's going to quickly become super popular and book out! Thanks for an awesome getaway!

Had a great weekend stay at the Cardinal 101! The unit itself had every amenity that we could need and was very clean which is important to us! We really enjoyed the view and local scenery and loved the fact that we could be in the town center in a matter of minutes. Great shopping, great food and great views! We will definitely be back and would definitely give 5 stars!!

Chetola is a lovely property. This was our first stay at the resort. Grounds were beautiful, well kept.Close to everything!!! We walked to town and to Bass Lake. Lunch at resort was delicious. Are panning on returning next year.l

Very friendly and helpful staff. Luke was very patient with us. Condo was very well furnished and comfortable.

We had a great stay in this house and specially enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen. Cooking was a pleasure!
The rental met all our needs, except easy parking on the front door level. We would have liked to know this in advance and perhaps rented a unit on the second or third floor. For older folks with weak knees and heavy bags, etc. it was a challenge. We were also sorry to see that all the large trees outside the unit had been cut down.
Other than that, all was good!

We stay at Chetola every year. This was our first time staying at your property, and we had a lovely time. The condo was clean and updated/new/stylish. We have 7 year old twins (you may have found a fruit loop or two on the floor), and they LOVED having their own room and patio. Perfect location to play tennis. They kayaked and fished at least once a day too. They even visited Max and Rosie (the names they assigned the swans years ago) and were delighted to meet the newest members of the swan family. The icing on the cake was your beautiful condo. Thank you for opening your home to us. We had a wonderful holiday! The Ajello Family

We loved staying here for a wedding weekend. The condo was much bigger than we were expecting and it couldn't be a more convenient location while still being so quiet.
- Becky, Posted: 09/09/2019
Our family enjoyed our stay at Cardinal 101. The condo was very well equipped and clean. The beds were very comfortable; it was very nice to have two king size beds and a sleeper sofa. The location of the condo was perfect - away from the main traffic but walkable to everything. Thanks for the little extras that made the stay more comfortable. We had a great trip!
- Lula, Posted: 09/10/2019
The property was perfect for me and my husband. We were there to celebrate his birthday and we had a wonderful time. It was our first vrbo experience and it went very smoothly.

Blue Ridge did an excellent job communicating information about our trip to Chetola. I received a personal phone call from a very pleasant and well spoken member of Blue Ridge who called after my reservation to see if I had any questions. Which I did. This is not typical and very much appreciated from this group. I also was sent helpful reminders prior to our departure about activities in the area we would be visiting. The property was as pictured and was decorated nicely, had several upgrades and was clean. Housekeeping found my husbands wireless headphones and turned them in to the office. The office is shipping them to us as I'm typing. It is so nice find a company with honest and caring people. We will be back.

This property was equipped like you were visiting someone's home. Furniture, rugs, flooring and accessories were beautiful. Kitchen was small but nicely equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious as well as closets. Good TVs. I would highly recommend. We love Chetola and all of the amenities in the community!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Chetola recently. The condo we stayed in was five star and the real estate company was also great.
- Florence, Posted: 11/18/2019
My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!! We are two older couples enjoying a quick weekend getaway and this property was perfect for us. The condo is more spacious than most and the furnishings were not only attractive, but also very comfortable. Chetola is a lovely, friendly resort that is conveniently located close to the town center. Check in/out was a breeze. We very much enjoyed our stay and definitely will come back.

We have rented property locally for over 30 years as App Ski Mountain ski patrol volunteers. During this time frame, we decided on Chetola for its well known festive decorations around the pond, and this unit due to its recent upgrades! To the owners - well done and well supplied! We had a lovely time visited friends and celebrating Christmas with family.

Cardinal 101 is a great place to stay while visiting Blowing Rock. We enjoyed how quite and well appointed the condo is. We enjoyed being close to the Appalachian Mountain Ski.

Clean and beautifully decorated. A great place to relax!

Wonderful property, tastefully decorated and immaculately maintained. Probably the nicest we have rented. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
- Glenn, Posted: 03/03/2020
This is most likely the nicest, cleanest vacation property we have ever been to. Tastefully decorated and immaculately maintained. The location is very convenient to the lodge and downtown Blowing Rock. Great dining everywhere we went. We'll definitely be back and hope this same unit is available.

Even though our three-month stay was overshadowed with Covid-19 , we enjoyed our time here at Chetola. We were especially pleased upon discovering the easy access to the trails and Bass Lake - so we spent a lot of time walking. Upon arrival, we found that the property managers had done an excellent job. The unit was very clean and well-stocked. They were also very helpful in tending to any small problems that popped up. This was our first experience renting for such an extended period; so, we thank you for sharing your place with us.
- David, Posted: 10/26/2020
Thank you so very much for the huge treat - we enjoyed staying in your beautiful condo! It is perfectly decorated for a mountain condo! We love Blowing Rock and enjoyed seeing "The Blowing Rock", dining out, shopping, and walking. Chetola Resort is one of our favorites! Once again, we appreciate your kindness and generosity!
- Jan, Posted: 11/08/2020
Birthday getaway with my husband & son. LOVED the condo! Spacious, well-decorated, clean, and very comfortable! We enjoyed lunches at the lodge on the patio. And had fun shopping. We hope to come back in the near future. Thank you!
- Jennifer, Posted: 12/28/2020
We really enjoyed our visit and the condo. It was amazing.
- David, Posted: 12/30/2020
The condo had everything you needed for a family staying there. We loved having a washer and dryer, TVs in both bedrooms. It was a 2 minute ride to downtown Blowing Rock and could have even walked if it there wasn't snow and ice on the sidewalk outside of the Chetola Resort. Chetola did a great job at keeping the roads clear to access our place.
- Margene, Posted: 02/22/2021
This unit had everything you need. Nicely decorated and offered something for everyone. 30 minutes to most winter attractions.
- Faith, Posted: 03/15/2021
Loved our short time here. The condo is perfect and service was great. We hope to come back

We really enjoyed our stay at Cardinal 101. Check-in was easy and the condo was spotless. We love staying at Chetola for the lake, indoor pool, spa, restaurant, and access to Moses Cone and downtown Blowing Rock. As always Blue Ridge Mountain does a great job of communicating with you prior to your stay.
- Nancy, Posted: 04/12/2021
We have stayed at Chetola off and on for about 20 years. One of the nicest places we have stayed in.
