Why Rick Rogers chose Blowing Rock

We used to visit Blowing Rock each year with friends who owned a place there; we fell in love with everything about this mountain village; we found that we could actually escape the worries and stresses of everyday life; the warm days and cool nights, friendly merchants and beautiful scenery overcame us. If we need a little larger town, Boone and Appalachian State University are 10 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

We feel very safe in Chetola with gate guards and security; we enjoy sitting on our back porch listening to nature, reading books, working on our laptop with wifi and reminiscing with friends and/or each other in a private yet downtown setting. Every summer the Charlotte symphony visits and plays on our grounds overlooking the lake, where we take picnics and can fish, walk or boat around the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Rogers' home in Chetola Dove 5 and absolutely loved it; there was no noise since it is a ranch end unit and the one level saved our knees. There is so much yard room that we felt like we had a detached home. The inside has been updated so nicely and the charm was unbelievable. The available WIFI was also very helpful in our real estate business. We cannot say enough nice things about Chetola in general and about Rick & Ginger's unit in particular. We love to go and have been back 3 times already.

Would never rent this property again

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived to check in at 4:30pm, the condo had not been cleaned, so beds were unmade, the bathrooms dirty, the trash not removed, and the the dishwasher full of dishes. We contacted the owner, who sent a cleaning crew. We finally were allowed in at 10:30pm. Past reviews revealed that two other renters had been through the same experience.

The dishwasher was broken, and the cleaning crew unloaded it, putting dirty dishes away in the cabinets. So, we had to wash dishes before using them, and were not left any dish washing soap, only one box of the Kleenex for the whole condo, scant toilet paper and no paper towels, or soap to tide us over until we could go to the store. The ice maker was broken, and I was able to jerry rig it to make ice, but unable to stop it from making ice. The counter appliances, and bar ware were also too grimy to use.

The MBR windows were stuck, and would not open to let in fresh mountain air. The paint was chipped on the walls. The MBR toilet seat was badly chipped, and the toilet ran on and off all night. The second bathtub had a damaged, unattractive bottom.

The beige chair and hassock in the living room were much too stained to invite sitting down, and the LR rug was stringy and greasy looking. The other carpets needed cleaning, and the Woolite carpet cleaner offered for use was hardly a solution on vacation. On the porch, the rocking chairs needed to be cleaned with an outdoor mildew cleaner. The bedroom linens were limp from wear and lack of washing. The bed sheets made me itch all night, and I broke out in hives where my short sleeve pajama sleeves didn't cover my skin. The towels made my husband too itchy to use them.

In the Good column, there was a large, new-looking washer dryer available, and the ceiling fans very nice.

When the owner called to check on how things were, and I told him, he became rude and abusive. He assured me that every family but ours just loved it, and tried to make our discomfort my responsibility. He told me to leave a day early, and that he would refund my money. He had double-booked that night.

Looking on your website, the condo has been rented solidly for the rest of the summer & September. The owner has removed his condo from your listings for future rentals, so that my review will not be seen. Other reviews of it are no longer available. I feel badly for current and future renters, and distrustful of your service, which I have enjoyed in the past.

Wonderful stay for a wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a wedding at chetola and rented this unit. The condo was beautiful we stayed with another couple and do not have one negative comment about the condo. Very clean, comfortable, quiet and lovely decor. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck enjoying the cool mountain weather. We have visited blowing rock many times but this was our first time renting a place to stay. The condo is well equipped with all basic necessities, lots of towels! The kitchen was also very nicely equipped except for coffee filters but lots of pans, dishes and glasses. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.
