About Ann Ward

As you can see, I am an ASU alumni!

Ann Ward purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ann Ward chose Banner Elk

We chose to purchase a condo in the Echota on the Ridge Community as it fit our needs of wanting a second home without serious upkeep issues. We enjoy the spectacular view, the ever changing weather and the amenities afforded to us in the residential community and in the Watauga County area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Mountain Views from a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular 180 degree views with lots of windows to enjoy that view at almost 4,000 feet elevation, located near the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Banner Elk, NC. The condo is beautifully appointed with everything you need for a short, or even a seasonal stay. Beds are very comfortable.

We stayed in February and enjoyed the snow. Access was adequate since the development provides snow and ice removal. Several ski slopes are nearby. Our son skis at Sugar Mountain every year. However, the summers are also beautiful with very comfortable temperatures. Although there is air conditioning, you won't need it in summer. We make it a point to visit Echota on the Ridge every summer.

You will not be disappointed in the community amenities, as well. An indoor and outdoor pool, fitness center and a club house with a pool table add to the enjoyment.

Superior quality, comfort and convenience!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our ski trip -- so cozy to return to after sub-freezing days on Sugar Mountain! Charming and tastefully furnished to just the right degree -- complete comfort without clutter or crowding. Clean and well-maintained. Convenient ground floor unit makes unloading easy. Excellent layout with plenty of space for gathering, yet the bedrooms are placed so occupants have privacy and quiet from the common areas. The bathrooms are spacious and stocked with plush towels. The unit is well-equipped with dishware and cookware, towels and linens (but bring your own consumable goods like laundry detergent, foil, saran wrap, dinner napkins, shampoo, etc. if desired). The views are absolutely breathtaking! Enjoyed our stay and highly recommend!

Great stay in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It was perfect for us (family of four). Everything we needed was there, it was very clean and well maintained. The towels were nice and clean and fluffy (we've rented a lot of places and not always been so lucky with the little details). Location was great for visiting tubing and skiing and restaurants in both Boone and Banner Elk. Owner was great to work with. We are already thinking about when we can come back in warmer weather. Thank you!

Christmas Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Christmas Get Away at this property. The unit was very clean, comfy, convenient to Boone and had wonderful views of the mountains. The sunrises were amazing and the light snow on Christmas Day was perfect! This unit is spacious for a family of four. The kitchen had everything we needed as well. I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything there that you need to make your stay enjoyable. The view is great. Like that it's on the main level so you don't have to go up stairs to get in. Went 12/8/17 and got to see snow which was beautiful. Great place!

Perfect Thanksgiving Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay! The property is more stunning than the photos capture, and we will definitely be back! Echota on the Ridge is such a breathtaking community and the unit was incredibly well kept, functional, and cozy for our long weekend in the mountains. The property was about a 20 minute drive to just about everywhere we wanted to go, easy to access from the main road, yet felt completely tucked away once you got up the mountain into the gated complex. Can't wait to return.
