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!

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.

Great place, wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the resort before and once again it did not disappoint. This place was nicer than the other condos at chetola. Kids love the lake and paddleboating! Views are great, we were a bit early for fall colors but it must be breathtaking. There were multiple weddings that weekend and saturday night we were treated to a 25 minute firework display that was the rival of most towns Independence day celebrations. I have no idea how often that happens, but I bet it's a few times a year at least.
