About the property

Beautiful Mountain Top, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Spacious 2 bedroom / 2 bath top floor condo with sleeper loft.

This is a Top Floor Loft Unit........ not to be confused with some lower level units listed! Top floor units have vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom and dining/living room areas - giving them a more open, roomier feel. A wall of windows allows for a great view of the mountains looking from the inside out. Climb the spiral staircase to the sleeping loft. Take in the amazing views from the deck which also has a vaulted ceiling!


Relax in our beautiful, fully furnished home away from home.

We are located in Echota on the Ridge in the small town of Foscoe, North Carolina, just minutes from Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock and Valle Crucis. The Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Falls/Caverns and the Original Mast General Store are all just a short drive away. Enjoy the cooler temperatures during June, July and August while everyone else is sweltering. The surrounding mountains turn into a patchwork quilt of oranges, reds, yellows and browns as Mother Nature transitions from summer to fall. Winter activities abound at Hawksnest Snow Tubing or one of the local ski resorts - Appalachian, Sugar Mountain or Beech Mountain.

When we say top of the mountain, we mean the TOP of the mountain! Echota on the Ridge is beautifully situated atop the ridgeline where the views are as unforgettable as the memories! Located on 97 scenic acres, this gated community features breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Take in the spectacular ridge-top views from our spacious 2 bedroom / 2 bath condo. The unit will comfortably sleep up to 6 people.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed with an ensuite bathroom (tub/shower), plus direct access to the deck!

The guest suite includes a bedroom with a queen-size bed and adjoining bathroom (tub/shower). The suite can be closed off from the rest of the unit for added privacy.

Both bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs and DVD players for your enjoyment.

Loft area features 2 twin beds. Perfect for letting the kids unwind and be kids.

Relax in the Family Room and watch your favorite TV show or movie on the 42-inch flat screen HDTV - cable and DVD player are provided for your pleasure. Enjoy music from the local radio stations or your favorite CDs with our deluxe sound system - outside deck speakers allow you to listen to music as you sit on the deck and gaze out across the mountain ridges. After a busy day of exploring the High Country, warm up in front of our stacked-stone gas fireplace with a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa.

In addition, you will find a great selection of Family / Kid DVDs, board games and books to use during your visit.

Stay connected to the web with our secure Wi-Fi.

Whether cooking or ordering carry-out, our dining set will comfortably seat 6 with additional seating at the breakfast bar.

If you like to cook, you will find all the essentials necessary to put together a culinary delight for you and your guests.

But we saved one of the best features for last - our DECK! Enjoy the breath-taking, panoramic mountain views as you relax and unwind in one of our Adirondack gliders.

A table, benches and electric grill are also available on the deck for alfresco dining.

An indoor pool and fitness center is located in the Echota Clubhouse (a quick five-minute drive away) or it’s just a short walk to the beautiful Echota on the Ridge Clubhouse (it's absolutely gorgeous). The Clubhouse is the perfect place to play a game of pool, swim in the outdoor pool, workout on the exercise equipment, connect to the free internet, or just sit and enjoy the many comforts while reading a book or watching the big screen TV.

You will certainly enjoy your stay at our second home and we'll bet you'll want to visit again real soon.

If you'd like any additional information on things to do, or just have questions - drop us an email and we'll promptly respond.

We've got some great rates right now - don't wait to book your escape!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To Our Guests……..We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our home away from home! We started in on this as two families looking to have a place to “get away” from it all, but “can’t always be here as much as we’d like”. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do when we’re here; it really is a special place that we’re sure you’ll appreciate!Just a few tips to make things a bit easier We’ve tried to provide a nice electronics, TV/sound system for your enjoyment – instructions for their use should be located on a laminated sheet above the fireplace. Everything in the family room can be controlled with one remote! We’ve also included those same instructions in this book along with instructions for starting the gas fireplace, local places of interest, etc. The thermostat for controlling heat/ac can be adjusted up or down by holding the button in a few seconds until the temp. starts blinking; then you can adjust up or down and it will reset within a few seconds.In case you’re having a rainy day or a quiet evening, an assortment of games is located in the cabinet near the patio door.Please take the time to place an entry about your stay in our Journal! Tell us what dates you stayed, where you’re from and a little bit about your visit! We’re just getting started in this adventure so you’ll be some of the first entries!Also…please take the time to e-mail us and let us know what you did or didn’t like about what we’ve provided. We tried to furnish and decorate our place to be comfortable, and we’re always open to any suggestions for improvement or to add those little extra things we may have overlooked! Our e-mail address is Top.of.echota at gmail dot com so please drop us a line when you have time.Last but not least, if you enjoy your time here, we’d appreciate any referrals of trusted friends or relatives that you may be able to provide!Thanks again and we truly hope you enjoy your stay!Mike, Darlene, Judy and Bob

Excellent Choice for a Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was nicely equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable. The only disappointment was discovering that the outdoor pool at Echota-on-the-Ridge wasn't opening until May 1, and the indoor pool is at another site altogether...Echota, NOT Echota on the Ridge.

Other than that, we enjoyed our weekend at this property!

Great condo, great views, great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend getaway with my family at this condo! We found the condo as exactly as described and did not encounter a single problem during our stay. Enjoyed a beautiful sunrise every morning and a cozy fire every evening. Looking forward to renting again during our future trips to the Boone area.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to the mountains with your family. Those sunrises NEVER get boring, do they? Each morning seems to bring a more beautiful view to behold! Thank you so much for staying at our Echota on the Ridge home. Please come back and experience the mountains during the rest of the year - spring, summer or fall! Best regards, Judy

Well appointed, comfortable condo with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this condo! The views from the deck are incredible. We particularly enjoyed watching the sun rise over the mountains every morning.So beautiful!

The condo is comfortable and well decorated. It was super clean upon our arrival, and nothing was out of place. The living room is great for relaxing and the TV is huge. The fireplace lends itself to the great ambiance. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner for your family, including coffee filters and salt and pepper. Nice touches that I wasn't expecting. Both the beds were comfortable as well. Our kids loved the loft area as their "special ninja hide out," or something like that. We even used the washer and dryer, and it was so nice to have that option right in the condo. The bathrooms were great as well, wonderfully decorated. Even better than a hotel! There was also a great selection of games. My husband and kids loved playing Battleship and other card games.

Our kids were constantly begging to use the indoor pool, which was located about 5 minutes from the condo in the main Echota. We were the only ones there several times.

The views driving up the mountain to the condo are beautiful as well. It's a winding road with falling leaves and beautiful colors on both sides. Almost looked like something from a magazine.

I can't say enough good things about this condo! You will not regret booking it. We hope to come back next year! It is located close enough to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk. We even ventured down to Spruce Pine and Linville Caverns. Beautiful mountainous drives!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 enjoyed two relaxing weeks in this great condo! The furniture was comfortable, the gas logs were very nice and cozy, and the view was breathtaking. We didn't realize that we were actually going to be staying on the ridge of a mountain, so it was a nice surprise to literally be on top of a mountain. We took advantage of most of the Echota amenities (indoor pool, hot tub, gyms, walking trail on the river, fishing....)We loved how close this was to Boone, Blowing Rock, the Parkway, Valle Crucis and Grandfather Mountain. We were so centrally located that we had easy access to the city and equally easy access to hiking trails and scenic drives. The rental office was very helpful and the owners were available, kind and extremely prompt when we had a question.
