We appreciate your feedback and comments, as we are always listening to what guests have to say and how to improve the experience for everyone. We are glad you enjoyed the service, your room and the restaurant. Regarding your reference to being outdated, we are currently undergoing major renovations in Chetola Lodge and redoing all of our lodge rooms to reflect a mountain luxe feel. You can keep up with our progress at chetola.com. I'm sorry you were unhappy with your view; we definitely wish all of our rooms could face the lake but we haven't figured out how to make that happen yet. We hope you choose to stay with us again and give us another go with a lakeview room and a treatment at the Spa.

We are very grateful for your comments and feedback. Your concern about the outdatedness of the condo you stayed in is being addressed by our property manager. All of our condos are individually and privately owned. Some units are recently renovated and beautifully outfitted, and others need some updates. We are in the process of evaluating each unit and creating a list of mandatory requirements that each owner must adhere to. We want to ensure that each unit is comfortable, up to date, and meets our guests' expectations. We will also discuss the cobwebs and the stains with both the property manager and housekeeping. Please let us know what unit you were in so that we can properly address the issue. I am sorry you had to wait a while to be seated for breakfast, but we are happy you enjoyed the buffet. Again, thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We do hope that you will come back and give us another chance to create a memorable vacation for you in an updated unit.

Please let me know your cancellation policy. I can’t find it on your mobile web page.
Lodge and the Bob Timberlake Inn: Currently, a seventy-two (72) hour advance cancellation notice is required for a refund. On Jan. 1, that policy will change to 7 days, at which time we will also require a one-night deposit for all lodge and inn stays. Condominiums: Cancellation, Change, "No-Show," Early Departure In the event of a cancellation, a refund of the advance deposit will be made provided the renter gives written notice twenty-one (21) days or more prior to the scheduled date of arrival. Any notice of cancellation less than twenty-one (21) days prior to the scheduled date of arrival will result in the forfeiture of one-half (1/2) of the advance deposit or $100.00 (whichever is greater). Any change of reservation will be subject to availability. There will be no refund for early departure. “No-Show” reservations will forfeit ALL deposits and reservation rights effective 9:00 AM the day following the scheduled arrival date. In the event of the sale or full time occupancy of the reserved unit by the owner, or if for any other reason the unit may become unsuitable for occupancy, Chetola Resort may provide the renter with a comparable substitute unit, without notice to the renter, and without liability of breach of contract. If Chetola Resort is unable to find a comparable substitute unit, Chetola Resort will be responsible only for refunding the deposit paid on the rental unit.

Is the resort within walking distance to downtown(with a 4 yr old)?
Downtown is about 1/2 mile, just slightly uphill, from the resort. With a stroller, it's completely doable, and on a nice day, it's a lovely walk. We have a path around our lake that leads almost all the way to the main entrance, at which time a sidewalk leads you into town. Parking availability downtown depends on the time of year. Summer and October are crowded and parking is difficult. Other times of the year, however, you can find parking on Main Street or in the downtown parking deck.

is it dog friendly
Currently, we are a pet-free resort. The area, however, is very dog friendly. We know how important it is for guests to be able to travel with their dogs, so we are in the process of discussing how to allow dogs into certain parts of the resort. It probably won't be this year, but we are working on it because we know it's hard to leave family members at home.

"hotel is under renovation(3/2019) Condos are roomy and a good value."
"If you want a view, the Moses Cone room is not for you. But I have no doubt there are beautiful views from the other rooms."
"Checkin is easier if you drive around the back of the main building, Confusing as the restaurant entrance is also in the front."
"Best views are in the hotel, but we prefer the condos."
"Stay in the Timberlake Side...Lake views are pretty but a noisier during the day and early AM."
