About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 6 - very comfortable, well appointed

Upscale, luxurious and comfortable, this 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, single level ground floor condo features breathtaking views from all sides. A generous 19ft covered deck with pub tables and padded chairs allows you to see seven ridges (across to Tennessee) with the tranquil, quiet peacefulness you deserve when sitting on top of a mountain.

Inside you’ll find it beautifully decorated with granite, leather, artwork, natural stone, and cherry – you’ll be very comfortable. The four-poster mahogany bed, the entrance way seating/storage, the sunburst in the dining room – all hand made by friends and family.

WiFi/Internet access, four TVs, CD/DVD/VCR/radio players, Tivo, Game Cube, pool/air hockey table, games, puzzles, movies, and books - all provided.

Note *** no 'regular' cable tv ***. BUT - there's Roku streaming along with SlingTV, Amazon, and Netflix subscriptions provided.

There’s also a supply of great coffee for your stay. And, did I mention the VIEWS! Guests have access to all Echota/Echota on the Ridge resort amenities - See the Location description for full details.

Suggested Activities: : There's so much to do in the high-country. If you have a particular desire, please contact me and I can provide you with an agenda and route that only local knowledge can offer. There's also a ton of local maps in the cubby by the door. For instance: - 1/2 day/full day scenic drive with the best place to stop for lunch - hikes to little known waterfalls, or views - hikes with kids / hikes with strollers - parks for kids - mountain biking, and I mean great single track - one trail is called 21 Jumps - great, secluded trout streams - picnic spots - best/cheapest place to ride horses - free sledding spots - back road routes / scenic drives - lunch to go (other than fast food) - where to go tubing in the summer (or snow tubing in the winter) - canoe/john boat rental (less than 15 min away) - watch rock climbing from above or below (less than 10 min away); or if you have you own gear... - Par 3 golf course (less than 10 min away)

Places to Eat: : Again, there's something to be said for local knowledge. We're more than happy to help with recommendations. upscale, casual, kid-friendly, seat with view -- whatever you're after, we can help you find it.

About Brent Sprinkle

I grew up camping in the mountains and continued this as an adult. When my wife and I first started looking for a vacation place we knew we wanted to be in the Boone, Blowing Rock area. After years (literally) of looking and the addition of two kids we decided a condo would best fit our requirements (low upkeep). We ultimately found a new unit in Echota on the Ridge with everything we wanted - a great, long range view, really great amenities, and very close to Boone and Blowing Rock. Bonus - it was an end unit with views on all sides, not just out the back. We've recently (spring 2010) decided to rent it out and hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Beautiful stay at Echota

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in this particular unit and our third time at Echota on the Ridge. This condo is beautiful - the views are gorgeous, it is impeccably maintained and has every thoughtful detail provided. Extras like tea coffee sugar spices are all at hand. The furnishings are comfortable, the attached bath for every bedroom makes it super convenient for families. We were a family of five and were very comfortable for our stay. Location is convenient to the BRP, Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock. You'll love it. Don't hesitate.

Summer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Echota ridge. Everything the description of the property was accurate. The views were spectacular throughout the day, whether the morning haze from the fog or the beautiful sunset. The condo was very luxurious, was well maintained and very spacious. Also, the owner was reachable within minutes in the only time we had to speak. I would highly recommend the location and would seek to used the property again in the future.

The perfect mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a week of respite and relaxation, and that is just what we had! The unit is a short drive from the main highway, very easy to get to. It was super clean, very well-stocked, and had a great view of the Blue Ridge Mountains!

We stayed here during the last week of April, which was a perfect time of year to enjoy both cool temps and warm, sunny days. We were able to recharge on a couple of cold, rainy days in the condo around the fire just playing games, putting together puzzles, and watching movies provided by the owners. One of those days we went to the indoor pool area and the kids splashed while we enjoyed the hot tub-- even as it rained outside. We also ventured out to nearby Grandfather Mtn. on one warm day to spent the afternoon picnicking, hiking, and taking in the clean mountain air there. We ate at the Dan'l Boone Inn on a week night without having to wait at all for a table. It's a must-do when you are in the area. The food is just like Grandma made it.

The best part of our stay was waking up every morning to the breathtaking view of the mountains. We did not feel as if we were in a condo, but a cabin in the mountains. There are no other units obstructing the view.

It was a perfect getaway, and the owners could not have been more responsive or provided a cleaner, more inviting place for us to stay! We are already planning our trip here next year!

Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice condo. It is well equipped for anything you might need. The beds are comfy. Our family especially liked that it had 3 bathrooms so everyone had their privacy. The condo has a great location not only for the views; but for skiing and sightseeing. Will definitely stay here again!

great weekend with grandkids!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful weekend with our 3 grandchildren. The condo was beautiful and had everything we could need. We enjoyed the snow tubing nearby and sledding in Beech Mountain. Kids loved the indoor pool.

The deck looked so inviting .... we'll have to return when it is warm enough to enjoy it!
