About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape to the North Carolina High Country this Fall!

Echota on The Ridge is a beautiful, new gated community loaded with amenities and featuring spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Echota is conveniently located off highway 105 between Boone and Banner Elk and is centrally located to all the hot spot areas of the High Country such as Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Our condo is a beautifully decorated two bedroom, two bath condo located on the walk-out level (NO STEPS!) with all new furniture and all the comforts of home. The master bedrooms features a California King Bed, large TV, a private bath and balcony access. The guest bedroom features a private bath and queen size bed. Plus the living room includes a sleeper sofa should you need extra space. The kitchen features an upgraded side-by-side refrigerator with ice/water in the door, granite countertops, and everything you should need to prepare your own meal (or menus from our favorite local restaurants for dining out). The deck will quickly become your favorite spot to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset over the mountains in the evenings – after all, isn’t this really why we visit the NC mountains?!?

The amenities in Echota are unbeatable and will make the time you just want to hang out very relaxing. On the Echota side of the property there is an indoor heated pool with a beach entry for little ones, a hot tub, a fitness center, a clubhouse and two stocked fishing ponds for your enjoyment. On the Ridge side of the property there is a beautiful, outdoor pool surrounded by gorgeous landscaping with a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Also on the Ridge side of the property there is another hot tub, a fitness center, a message therapy room and another clubhouse. You may never want to leave the property!

When you are ready to venture out of Echota tons of activities await you. Grandfather Mountain is a short drive away and offers loads to do, including hiking, picnicking, and the famous Mile High Swinging Bridge! There are lots of other areas to hike, walk, or bike as well - many of the nearby towns feature trails, parks and greenways. Plus the Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby and offers miles of beautiful scenery and hiking trails.

Additionally, there are several ski areas nearby – Hawksnest, Appalachian, Beech and Sugar – for your winter time entertainment or hiking/walking/biking in the no-snow months. This area is a true outdoor enthusiast’s haven! If you’re looking for something more low-key, venture over to Banner Elk, Boone or Blowing Rock for some shopping and a great meal, or even a treatment at a spa. Whether you spend a weekend or a month you will not be bored in this area as there are activities well suited for everyone!

We are available to answer any questions you may have about our condo, Echota or the area. We hope you will visit our little piece of heaven soon!

About Elizabeth Faulkner

We lived in Charlotte for a very long time and loved getting to Echota as often as possible. After 3 years in Texas, we're now living in Greenville, SC. With young kids we don't get to Echota as often as we would like to so we are happy to have visitors enjoy our little piece of Heaven in the High Country! We hope you will enjoy Echota on The Ridge as much as we do!

Elizabeth Faulkner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Elizabeth Faulkner chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We love Echota on The Ridge for the amenities the complex offers and the location. We love being close to Boone and Banner Elk and all that the area has to offer. Hiking, biking, shopping, rafting, tubing, skiing, you name it, you can do it here! This area is a short drive from our home, yet a fabulous escape from the city.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxation - sit on the deck and sip your coffee. Take a trip to Grandfather Mountain for a serious hike or go for a relaxing walk on the Greenway in Banner Elk. There are endless options in this area.

Echota on the Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo for our anniversary in 2010 and again this year (2013) in August. It has a beautiful view and is so comfortable, quiet and wonderfully relaxing. We enjoyed our stay again and thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home.

Restful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we had hoped for. The photos reflect the actual unit. Everything was clean and well maintained. I will recommend this property to friends and family. I recommend Appalachian University Summer Festival activities, and performances all year long at the University Schafer Center.

Lovely Place in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at this condo the first week in August 2010. I am a die-heart ocean person, but the heat this summer persuaded me to look for a cooler spot.

We were very pleased with the accommodations. The place is spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Everything you need is provided in the kitchen (if you want to cook)! The views are great (except when the heavy fog comes in), which is something no one can do anything about. The owners were very nice to work with and followed up after our visit asking for feedback, suggestions, etc.

I would rent this condominium again.

Echota on the Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending a weekend at this property in early August. We found it to be immaculate, comfortable and relaxing, even for a two-day stay. The property is convenient to many locations such as Tweetsie or nearby skiing venues come Winter. We enjoyed the full kitchen, comfortable furniture and the view from the porch of sunsets over Grandfather Mountain. This unit has plenty of room for a family of four, with spacious baths and plenty of 'wiggle room' for kids. We will certainly be back to use this spot as a 'home base' for other mountain exploration and adventures next time we get away!
