About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-15)

New home in Echota on the Ridge! Part of a 250 acre resort and gated community in the beautiful NC Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy an extremely spacious 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, three-level floor plan that provides everyone with ample room to relax and enjoy this peaceful haven. The home includes a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer and central heat and cooling.

When you’re not taking in the gorgeous profile views of Grandfather Mountain and the surrounding ridges from the huge oversized deck, you can relax and watch TV or a movie on the wide-screen HD ready television, with DVD mounted near the floor to ceiling natural stone gas fireplace.

When you’re recharged, head down to the pool & spa for a refreshing swim in the heated indoor or outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is surrounded by beautiful rock formations and flowing waterfalls.

You can also take a dip in our 5-6 person hot tub off the lower deck with beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain views as a backdrop. If you’d rather work up a sweat, you can use the well-appointed exercise room.

The nearby clubhouse is the perfect spot to enjoy a game of pool or foosball, catch some sports on the big screen TV, or curl up with a book in a cozy chair by the large stone fireplace.

For the fisherman, the resort has several stocked 'catch and release' ponds, guests also have access to 1000' on the nearby Watauga river in Echota's own 25 acre nature conservancy.

In the winter a whole new experience awaits you, the ski areas of Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Hawks Nest and Appalachian Ski Mountain are just minutes away, making this home an ideal base for your winter ski vacation.

Rent with confidence through our onsite property management company who accept credit cards, offer renter's insurance, etc.

Whether you like skiing, hiking, biking, white water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, golfing or just getting away from it all, this home in the mountains would be a perfect place to create a memorable anytime getaway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our home was named after our youngest son, we call 'Little Bear'. We use this as a 2nd home and rent it out often since between a 15 year old and a 3 year old we don't make it away as much as we would like!

Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk, NC, USA:
We love the great views from our home and all the the great features of Echota. We are within walking distance to the new clubhouse with a pool table, multiple LCD TV's, fitness center, outdoor pool, and more. There is also a 2nd clubhouse with an indoor pool, ponds, and fly fishing in the river that are all a short drive away in our gated community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are approximately 10 miles from Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk, Appalachian State University, Tweetsie, Grandfather Mountain, Outlet shopping, and most of the area ski resorts. We have a large hot tub on our deck overlooking the mountains.
