GORGEOUS VENUE! Chetola boasts a one of a kind lakefront venue for both ceremony and reception. We were so lucky to get married during the beautiful fall season in Blowing Rock. Our wedding took place under willow tree and we had originally planned for our reception to be at the lakeside tent. When we downsized our wedding (due to COVID) we were able to seamlessly transition to a reception at the lakeside arbor. Jeffrey and Chassie were incredibly accommodating and helpful throughout the planning and replanning process. They were professional, organized and responsive to our questions and needs. Chetola's World class Chef and baker both exceeded all of our expectations. The food was the best wedding food we have ever had and all of our guests agreed! The wait staff were polite and attentive all evening. The resort is flexible and accommodating to all guest's needs and very family friendly with ample activities for entertainment. The convenient location to town and hiking made Chetola the perfect place for our guests to stay during their visit to Blowing Rock. There is nothing we would change about our perfect wedding experience at Chetola!Sent on 10/12/2020

Flexible and beautiful wedding venue
My sister wanted a weekend wedding getaway in the mountains. Chetola was the perfect spot. We were able to stay in villas for the weekend and have a beautiful ceremony under the willow tree by the lake. The staff were very accommodating to our unique needs and goals for the weekend.Sent on 05/06/2019

Whether you are looking for the romance of autumn leaves reflecting off a glorious mountain lake, or the warmth and ambiance of roaring fires in a mountain lodge, Chetola Resort is perfect for your special day.
LOVE this venue!
We really loved working with Kara and her team. They were on the ball with things all night that we may have requested or needed done and did it with a smile. Kara was extremely helpful with my bride who was in the military as we planned from afar. I will totally recommend them to all of my brides for the future! I hope to have a wedding there again soon!
