Room Descriptions

The Bob Timberlake Inn at Chetola Resort is a magnificent Bed and Breakfast located in Chetola's Manor House Estate Home. No detail has been left untouched in the guest rooms and public areas. 

The main feature, of course, is Bob Timberlake furniture, artwork, accessories and charming mementos that Bob has personally selected to adorn the Inn. The rich tapestries and upholstery fabrics are elegant yet cozy. The color schemes of rich golds and neutral tones were popular in the early 1900s. The window and bedding ensembles, architectural treatments, custom moldings and decorative period lighting all are reflective of the 1920's through the 1940's, Chetola's Golden Age during Luther Snyder's ownership of the estate. The Inn truly is a blending of historic elegance and modern day Bob Timberlake style.

All guest rooms feature either a King Bed or a Queen Bed, flat screen televisions, fireplace, whirlpool tubs, DVD Players, In Room Safes, and Robes. Most rooms have a view of Chetola Lake.
