Pet Perks


Furry guests (dogs and cats only, please) may stay in our pet-friendly first-floor lodge rooms for $25 per night or $75 for the full stay.

  • Rooms come equipped with water and food bowls and a mat.
  • A loaned Chetola leash supplied by and returned to the Front Desk identifies your pet as a Chetola registered guest. Attached to the leash is one waste bag.
  • The Front Desk and Recreation Center have maps detailing incredible hikes, waterfalls, and photo-perfect vistas you and your pet can enjoy.

We are happy that you and your pet have joined us at Chetola Resort! We want you and all our guests to have a wonderful and memorable stay, so we ask you to join us in following some simple guidelines:

  • “Pets” are restricted to dogs and cats and are limited to a maximum of two per unit and no more than 80 pounds each.
  • The leash supplied to you at check-in must be on your pet at all times, and your pet must be with you at all times on the property.
  • Pets get lonely and can be anxious in an unfamiliar place. Pets left in rooms unattended must be crated. We will provide complimentary crates if you are not traveling with one. Regarding noisy pets in your absence, we require a cell phone to be left with our Front Desk staff in the event your pet is disturbing other guests, at which time you will be called and must return immediately to comfort and/or remove the pet. If you do not answer, Security will remove the pet and relocate them to a safe location on property where they are not disturbing guests.
  • Housekeeping to schedule a time (between 8am-2pm) for cleaning when you and your pet will be out of the room. Even though your pets will be crated if you aren’t there, we don’t want to upset them with strangers working around them.
  • There are lots of places for your pet to play, but not in the restaurant, pub, meeting rooms, or spa and recreation center. Pets are only permitted on the first floor of Chetola Lodge, in the 2nd Floor Lobby, and outdoors on Chetola grounds.
  • Service animals, assistance animals, or pets are not permitted to swim in Chetola Lake or our two upper ponds.
  • Never approach any wildlife with your pet (swans, deer, raccoons, bears, skunks, ducks, geese, etc.).
  • We love green grass and so does your pet, so please clean up afterward with the provided waste bags located at various stations around the property.
  • A $200 ‘Yuck Fine’ is assessed if we have to clean up your pet’s waste.
  • Animals that display an aggressive nature or disturb the tranquility of others as solely determined by Chetola staff (examples: barking, jumping, biting, scratching, chasing others) must be removed from Chetola Resort immediately. Please keep them in your control and care.
  • Chetola proudly supports the adjoining Moses Cone National Park with its 27 incredible miles of hiking trails for you and your pet. Maps are available at the Front Desk and the Recreation Center. Be sure to keep your pet on a leash throughout the park as the Park Rangers strictly enforce this policy (and, trust us, they don’t give warnings, so consider this the only one).

Chetola Resort may make exceptions to the pet policy on a case-by-case basis to accommodate the needs of disabled individuals as required by federal law.

Chetola Lodge Makeover: Revitalized and Refreshed

We are currently renovating our hotel to better serve you, our guests. Our fresh look, created by designer Dawn Pearson, puts retreat in “mountain retreat.” We are excited to give you, our guests, the very best!

We apologize for any inconvenience and offer our sincere thanks for your patience and support. If you have any concerns, please email us at or call 828-295-5500.


Only the 1st floor is under renovation at this time (floors 2 and 3 remain fully functional). Daily renovations will take place 9am-6pm, with heavy construction beginning at 10am. No interior construction will occur on the weekends. The main lobby and elevator are fully accessible.


Renovation of 1st Floor Guest Rooms and the Main Lobby


“My inspiration for the design elements evolved  from what I envision the DNA of Chetola to be and the natural surroundings of the property. I chose organic, natural materials that I hope complimented but did not distract from the natural aesthetic. In addition, from an experiential standpoint, I wanted to accentuate a “lodge” environment that would encourage a “camp-like” quality of gathering. Honestly, it is what I look to experience whenever I travel. With such a beautiful property to work with, all the elements came together very naturally.” – Dawn Pearson

Structurally Based Life Enhancement & Vitality


Instruction by Davidson Reid


Day 1

The Physical Body; Sleep, Eat, Move

The physiological factors essential for reaching an optimal state of being will be addressed in our first workshop session. We will discuss human sleep history and modern sleep hygiene with the intention of being able to better assess and correct our own sleep hygiene habits. We will also discuss basic nutritional guidelines and strategies to help guest develop a healthier approach to eating. In addition to addressing food as fuel for our bodies, we will look at our emotional relationship with diet.

Movement is a key physiological component that must be present in order to truly experience health and wellness. On Day 1 we will be explaining how and why movement has such a profound impact on not just our physical bodies, but on our emotional bodies, or bodyminds.

The Emotional Body; Meanings and Emotions

We will continue our discussion of how the body and mind are not merely connected but are, in fact, one, with no difference, no separation, and no distance between them. Our focus will be on the emotional aspect of our bodies and how and why our physical bodies are the best tools we have to improve our emotions, and vice versa. With an understanding of the physiological factors addressed in Day 1, guests will begin to develop an understanding of the skills that lie at the heart of our approach. We believe this practice to be at the center of a life filled with joy.

Guests will have opportunities to begin addressing their bodies through Structural Integration and movement. In addition, guests will receive a copy of the Functional Movement Screen which they will then be able to share with the practitioner with whom they choose to work as they address the movement portion of their protocol. This screen will include a movement recommendation.

Instructor Bio

Davidson Reid began his career in 1987 performing with the Joffrey Ballet in New York City. While in New York, Davidson began to study and teach Pilates with many of the nation's most prestigious Pilates instructors and studios. This is where his deep understanding of human anatomy and movement first began to take shape. After living and working in South Africa and Europe primarily as a dancer, he returned to New York City and began teaching Pilates full time. As Power Pilates' first Senior Teacher Trainer, Davidson relocated to Atlanta, where he still resides, and has certified hundreds of Pilates instructors in Atlanta, around the US, and internationally.

In 2008, Davidson discovered Redcord Suspension Exercise and was immediately drawn to how simple and effective a tool it is. Today, Davidson is a Redcord educator. Redcord can be found at Pilates studios throughout Atlanta as well as in many gyms and physical therapy practices.

In 2010, Davidson met and began to study with Thomas Myers, a widely respected anatomist and considered by many to be the world’s leading expert on the manual body work technique known as Structural Integration. More commonly known as Rolfing, Structural Integration (or S.I.) was the tool that Davidson had been missing during his entire career. With Mr. Myers' urging, Davidson enrolled at Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI), Mr. Meyers' school of Structural integration. After years of study, including cadaver dissections and several months of immersion at Mr. Meyers' home and school in Walpole, Maine, Davidson became a board-certified Structural Integrator and went back to work incorporating this profoundly effective tool into his practice.

Today, Davidson is the proud owner of Physical Culture in Brookhaven, where he devotes himself to his clients and the integrated system of Pilates, Redcord, and S.I.for the attainment and maintenance of efficient and uniformly developed physical structure.

"I am dedicated to the liberation of the human spirit and the realization of individual potential beginning with myself. I work with intelligent, time-tested tools and integrated techniques proven to deliver what I believe to be the first requisites of joy."
~Davidson Reid~
