Chetola Mountain Resort has a rich history that dates all the way back to 1846 when property was originally purchased for a mere five cents per acre. The estate was named Chetola sometime after 1892 by its then residents, the Stringfellows, and the name continued even as the property changed hands. It wasn't until 1982 that the estate was considered to become a resort by a group of businessmen. The estate was redeveloped and many additions were created such as the meeting facilities that still exist today. Now, years after its transformation, Chetola Mountain Resort continues to welcome guests to experience the wonders of the Blue Ridge Mountains!
