A lot of you followed along in our stories the other weekend when we were able to stay at the Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock. It was SUCH A BLAST!!! We were all so pleasantly surprised at how comfortable we were there! The condo we stayed in had literally everything you would need while on vacation (and a lot more)! My family used to go on big ski trips every year with our whole family. Being at this condo reminded so much of that time and all the fun we had piling into a condo sleeping all over the place. This resort would be IDEAL for big family trips!! I have saved all my videos in a highlight but on my Instagram, you can do a tour of where we stayed and see all the amazing perks.
One of the things I loved the most about the Chetola Resort was how much they have going on at the property. You could have your vacation never leaving the property and be 100% happy. There are the beautiful trails windy through the resort, a s’mores bonfire at night on the weekends, live music, YOGA, and so much more! The kids were so excited about the s’mores. One of the evenings we had dinner at their AMAZING restaurant, Timberlake’s, and there was live music playing! It was such a fun surprise! Wyatt cracked us up, he was so exhausted from all the fun that he fell asleep right at the table.
If you eat at Timberlake’s you HAVE to try their Ahi Tuna Nachos. I day dream about them they are so good! We all devoured them and cold have eaten them at every meal if it was socially acceptable! 😅 Okay, I’m gong to go see if I can get them delivered. A 3 hour drive for delivery wouldn’t be too much to hope for right?!
I think the crayon really make this photo of the Ahi Tuna Nachos truly amazing and drool worthy!
And, because we have kids, could we ever forget the pool?! What is it with kids? The pool always seems to be the best part! The pool here was amazing, the kids never got cold while swimming, which typically happens every time, and the whole ambiance of the pool area was perfection! It had a perfect balance of updated and rustic cabin. There was also a ping pong table in the area which I thought was such a cool addition. While we were there people were coming and going from the Spa, not going tot lie, I was a little jealous of them! Next time we go I WILL be going to that spa! Can you imagine? Your kids are at the pool with husband and you get to slip away to the spa for a nice massage for facial. Heeeeeaven!!!
We have been to Blowing Rock a few times since moving to North Carolina but this was BY FAR the best experience yet! No one was ready to leave. If you are planning on traveling to the Blue Ridge Mountains you need to do your best to stay at Chetola Resort! It a short drive from the resort to the Parkway, to Hawksnest and Appalachian Ski Resort!
Oh and guys! There are a handful of swans on the property and it is THE COOLEST! They are so much bigger and more beautiful than I had imagined! We were all in love with them.
