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

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.

There is no way to describe how awesome this property is!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in March. This condo is in a gated community at the top of a mountain. The view from the balcony and master bedroom are amazing! It’s 9 miles from the heart of Boone and a straight drive there. This is a walk-in unit so you don’t have to battle any stairs. The owners are so nice and very helpful with any questions we had. It far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be staying there again!

Great quite location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo in early February 2018 and found the location was awesome right in the middle of everything. It is right off the highway 105 and you feel like you’re in the middle of everything and then you drive up to the top of the mountain and you feel secluded.

The condo was very clean and cozy and had everything that you need. We did not use all the amenities of the condominium complex so we cannot review them.

Our only thing we think that need to be addressed is the master bed , might be time for a new mattress and possibly an entire bed frame.
