Qualified General Manager sought for luxury "Triple Gold Crown" resort in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Must have 5 years successful hospitality GM experience.

The 87-acre property sits on an 8-acre lake stocked with rainbow and brook trout and was the first Orvis Endorsed fly fishing lodge in North Carolina. It neighbors 3,600-acre Moses Cone National Forest, with its grand manor and 27 miles of horseback riding/hiking trails. The quaint village of Blowing Rock and Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway with 40 retail manufacture outlets also adjoin this facility. With its many second homes, shops, restaurants, rivers and trails it has become the “bedroom community” for Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh NC. Blowing Rock Elementary School has consistently ranked as one of the top5 schools in the state. Private and Public golf, skeet shooting, theme parks (Tweetsie Railroad and Grandfather Mountain), horseback riding, snow skiing, family rafting (class 1 to 2), adventurous kayaking (class 3 to5), hiking, repelling, tennis, ziplining, etc. are examples of the areas outdoor activities.

The Resort is located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway& US Hwy. 321 in the charming town of Blowing Rock, just 10 minutes to Boone, NC (US 421), Appalachian State University and Appalachian Regional Healthcare. Greensboro, (US 85 & 40 &77) Charlotte, (US 40) Winston/Salem, NC and Johnson City, TN are all within a two-hour drive or less.

Chetola Resort contains a condominium construction and sales division with 229 occupied units and only 10 more units to be constructed. Under its rental management program 101 (1-4 bedroom) are leased. In addition, 36 units of timeshare are on the property. Chetola has the management contract on both property owner associations. The 42-unit superior hotel has completed 2 of 3 stages of room renovation in 2017. Joining the lodging group is the historic 1846 Bob Timberlake Inn (8 exclusive B&B rooms), with a 100-seat restaurant and pub below.

Chetola Resort offers six indoor facilities for gatherings of 15 to 150 and a 200-seat outdoor tent. In addition, the resort has a recreation center with indoor pool, fitness center and full-service spa (5 treatment rooms, hairdresser, manicure/pedicure area and separate lounging bar area). The resort owns acreage for future commercial expansion.

In summer of 2017 the Chetola Sporting Reserve opened. It’s a short drive away with 13 sheet stations, a five box, pistol, air rifle and archery ranges, 42 seat clubhouse with a catering kitchen and bar. This 67-acre site is set up to accommodate our 200-seat tent.

This beautiful resort is uniquely located in a quaint mountain village and is at a good turning point as the primary feeder markets grow and technologies and marketing radically change. “To big to be small, too small to be big” is where we exist. I am looking for an individual that has a real passion for the hospitality business and understands the complexities of running a full-service boutique resort. They must have the insight to look at the bones of this family grown organization and restructure it for profitability and growth.

Caring for both our guest and our staff has become a mainstay and tradition in this privately owned non-franchised business. You will need to be a self-motivated individual who takes real pride in their work and develops a sense of shared ownership with the whole team. You must be driven, creative, caring, accountable, analytical and a good communicator. Integrity in our work and honesty in our dealings with others are paramount principles I demand of myself and all management at this property.

It has become our home and we are proud to be a part of our community. After 27 of service our current General Manager is leaving and that creates some rather big shoes and dreams to fill.

Below you will find the current job description for this important position. Starting salary will begin between $85,000 and $105,000, plus performance based bonus and benefits

Applicants may send resume by e-mail for initial review to I will respond back by email or phone after reviewing resumes within 7 days (except when traveling September 9th-18th).
