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 in 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

Mountain views, with mountain getaway warm feel

  • 5 of 5

I'm a stickler for detailed cleaning and this was the cleanest rental I've stayed in. Views, views, views are top on my list when going to the mountains, and this place did not let me down. The loft is perfect for kids. Ours thought it was their own getaway which gave hubs and I our own down time.

Great Location & View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in a great location, and had an awesome view. Generous 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with a loft with an additional 2 twin beds. Good sized living, kitchen and dining combo. There is usually quite a breeze on the balcony, but that's probably nice in summer. Can really recommend Family Billiards right down the road in Foscoe. Curvy, exciting drive to Blowing Rock & the Parkway. The condo was very clean / well taken care of.

Amazing Views and Lovely, Pristine Condo

We had a wonderful time staying at Echota on the Ridge over Easter. We had a beautiful Easter Sunrise. The condo was pristine and perfect for our family. We are already looking at the calendar to see when we can revisit the High Country this summer. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

Amazing views, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Echota on the Ridge and cannot wait to come back again. It is very serene and we loved being on the patio, listening to the birds chirp. The views were amazing and each day, depending on the weather, they were different. The place is very cozy and has everything you need. It is very clean and spacious. Great location, close to Boone and Banner Elk.
