Why Robert Sterling Gingher (Bob) chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Robin is the first condominium to be built at Chetola. With a grand view of the resort surround, it stands tallest of all the units upon the topmost hill with a unique original solid-rock chimney.

What makes this condo unique

We like the spacious entryway and light-filled, open floor plan. Robin 1 is one of the few condominiums on the 87-acre resort with its own Jacuzzi room, the outside wall of which is one large window connecting the spa experience to the great outdoors. It has been recently refurbished with new furniture and appliances, new large HDTVs complete with Blu-ray DVD players and wireless internet for Netflix, Amazon Prime, and many other streaming apps. Our family and guests rave, so we're happy! See https://vimeo.com/143772906

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family has had the pleasure of vacationing in this unit for more than 20 years. The condo is nicely appointed, with a magnificent fireplace, a great porch with a beautiful view, a full kitchen and a hot tub. The décor is artistic and the spacious accommodations are comfortable with a large couch and cozy reading chairs.

A perfect 4 day getaway with two teen age grandsons.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your mountain home. I made sugar water for the hummingbird feeder and bought bird seed so that by the time we left we had lots of activity on the deck, including a chipmunk. The boys enjoyed the fishing on Chetola Lake and the chef cooked up their catch on our last evening at the restaurant. Nightly visits to the pool and some fun lunches in Blowing Rock were also highlights. Your home had everything to make us comfortable. Thanks. We'll be back. Raleigh

Owner's Response: Sounds like a delightful vacation in the high country! Didn't know about chef-cooking-catch possibilities...that's good to know. We're heading up to Robin tomorrow with our grandsons, 12 and 14. They're just about to fly in from the Boston area for a 2-week visit. We love appreciative and enthusiastic guests like you. Do come back soon!

Comfortable and spacious condo in Chetola Resort, Blowing Rock

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our four grandchildren enjoyed this spacious condo. Chetola is lovely with an indoor pool, grounds to roam and swans to feed while walking around the lake. It is a short drive to a grocery store, Bass Lake for hiking, the Blue Ridge parkway, Tweetsy Railroad and within walking distance to shopping, dining and the park in Blowing Rock. Robin I is comfortable and has all you will need for your stay.

Very comfortable space in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Robin 1. The condo was clean and well-appointed. The wifi/TV setup allowed us to easily stream a movie from our iPad at the end of a day of adventure outside. The electronic lock is a nice touch and made check in and out very simple. Bob recommended the New Public House restaurant, which we loved so much we went twice.

Picky people

  • 4 of 5

The condo at Chetola was very nice and comfortable. A couple of areas for improvement though: 1) the indoor hot tub was heavily marketed and desirable, but was in very poor condition and we chose not to use it 2) the pantry had virtually no staples, eg, salt, pepper and we chose to leave several to 'pay it forward' 3) the kitchen faucet leaked 4) the bath tub stopper didn't work. In summary, we liked Chetola very much and would stay at that resort again.
