About Ann Ward

As you can see, I am an ASU alumni!

Ann Ward purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ann Ward chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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

We had a great stay. Your condo was wonderful. Thanks and happy new year.

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.

Best Vacation Rental EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our party agreed, this was the best vacation rental we've ever booked! The place was perfectly cleaned, but didn't have a harsh chemical cleaner smell. The kitchen was well stocked with QUALITY cutlery, knives, pots, pans, etc. Most places we stay will have the cheapest kitchen items, but not this place! The owners reply to messages within a day, if not minutes. Instructions were very easy to follow and detailed.

As for the complex, the amenities where awesome (trails, pools both indoor and outdoor and both heated), hot tubs, gated, and a great friendly vibe. Close and convenient to everything the Boone area has to offer.

Great View!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located in a nice gated community that seems to be well maintained. The condo was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Our favorite part was the amazing view of the mountains from the back deck. We would definitely rent this place again.

LOVE THIS CONDO!💕

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay on the ridge. Both times have been amazing for many reasons. The condo is adorable, clean, cozy, well equipped, and has amazing views. You will not be disappointed with your stay here. The location is close to many things: Boone, Appalachian State, 3 wineries, Blowing Rock, The Blue Ridge Parkway, tons of hiking and views, skiing/tubing, Linville (falls, winery, wiseman's view, gem mining, caverns), and plenty of food options. We usually cook most of the meals at the condo, but have eaten out a few times and have enjoyed the places we visited. Proper, by App State, was our favorite so far. Super nice and reasonable at the Banner Elk Cafe. I really cannot say enough good things about this condo and the area. We absolutely LOVE it! Hoping to have an App State student in the family so we can visit more often!!

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Another great weekend for us at Echota on the Ridge. We have stayed in this development over the past ten years or so and always find the property extremely well maintained. This was our first time staying in this unit and we found it was very clean, well equipped, and tastefully decorated. Enjoyed the quiet retreat and amazing views! Looking forward to visiting again soon. The Cranford's
