Loved staying at this condo with my husband and baby girl. It was super convenient to both Boone and Banners Elk. Something for everyone from shopping, to dining out, to great hiking spots! Thank you for sharing this hidden gem!

This condo is the cleanest, best maintained, and most tastefully decorated that we have ever stayed in. The owner was wonderful to work with and information at the condo helped everything go smoothly. Two thumbs up on this rental.

Neat as a pin mountain condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. This condo is in a nice gated community with many amenities. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The view from the deck was excellent. We would recommend this property as a home base for your mountain adventure.

Mountain Condo Stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. My husband and I visited for a few days with our 5 and 9 year old kids. The condo faces west, so there is a nice sunset in the evenings and the back deck is the perfect place to watch it! The location is great - Foscoe is 20 minutes or so from Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. Lowes grocery store nearby too. The condo had everything we needed to sleep, shower, cook a few meals, and the outdoor electric grill did a better job with our burgers than I anticipated. :) The only negative I would say are all of the signs around the condo with instructions, etc. I thought they were excessive and made us feel more like a liability or a burden than a welcome guest. I realize that renters can be abusive and careless but the number of signs was just a little much for a place that's supposed to be a relaxing getaway. There were also things we had to do upon checkin like turn on the water and the water heater and turn them off upon checkout. We didn't see the part about turning on the water heater until our kids had suffered through very cold showers. :( It was in the several pages of check-in/check-out instructions but we missed it as we were busy getting unpacked and getting ready to go out and have fun. Didn't make sense that these things had to be done since someone occupied the condo right before and right after our stay and it was September. I've also stayed in a few condos in Echota on the Ridge and had never had to do that before. Anyway, the owners are obviously very detail-oriented and meticulous, which overall contributed to a nice stay in a well-appointed condo.

Owner's Response: Turning the water and hot water heater off when the condo is unoccupied is a safety requirement of the HOA; there has been major damage in the past due to frozen water pipes in several units. Violations can result in the owners being fined. The HOA’s insurance rates are also very high because of past water problems. The instructions for the water and hot water heater are in bold print on the 1st page just after the instructions for how to access the door key in the lock box. We’ve determined over the last several years it’s best to have one set of check-in and checkout instructions for all guests. Over the years we’ve had many positive comments regarding our detailed instructions about how things work in the condo and all the information we provide regarding directions to the condo, activities in the area, restaurant recommendations, area grocery stores, etc.
