WHAT OUR GUESTS TELL US |
'I couldn't dream of a better place to spend a few days with great friends... My wife and I take a one-week vacation only once per year, and there is no other place in America we would have rather stayed... Although we had seen the pictures of the view prior to our visit, there is no substitute for seeing the real thing in person.'
'We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and could not have been more pleased. The views are stunning, and we spent most of the weekend on the very nice covered deck enjoying the view with a glass of wine. The condo itself is new, clean, and beautifully & comfortably furnished and decorated. We really could not have asked for anything more. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back! Thanks for a great stay!
“This property not only meets, but exceeds, the promises in the listing. The view is breathtaking...and (t)he photos don't do it justice. It seems so much more like a home than a vacation rental.”
“I would definitely recommend this spot to my friends.”
“Your service is above and beyond anything we have ever received.”
“Thanks again for sharing your special retreat. We will definitely be returning and sharing our experience with others.”
'I just can't say enough about the view! If you're looking for a cozy, upscale condo with plenty of room, perfect views and a peaceful retreat, this is the one!'
MOUNTAIN-TOP SPLENDOR | Echota on the Ridge is a private, gated resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains, located between Boone and Banner Elk within sight of historic and beautiful Grandfather Mountain. Our top-floor condominium is nestled on “the Ridge” of this spectacular property with 30-mile views of rolling mountains of North Carolina and into Tennessee.
LIVING | 2 spacious bedrooms and an open, airy loft contain four beds. Master bedroom: luxurious king-sized bed and private access to the spacious deck. Second bedroom: queen bed. Loft: two matching twin beds. There’s plenty of seating in the den for socializing and in the dining area for great meals. The kitchen is fully-equipped with new appliances.
THE VIEWS | Echota’s vistas are spectacular, but none better than from our deck, which features vaulted ceilings with plenty of views from the main living area and master bedroom. From the deck, the scenery is unparalleled.
ON SITE | Echota is world-class and properties on 'the Ridge' consist mostly of non-rented 2nd homes and condos and year-round residences. Two private clubhouses are on site (one a short walk from our home), featuring an outdoor pool, a hot tub, a heated indoor pool, health spa and fitness area, stocked ponds for fishing and gorgeous hiking trails. Located between Boone (home to Appalachian State University) and Banner Elk, Echota is also just minutes from Grandfather Mountain (visible from the Ridge) in Linville and historic Blowing Rock.
PLENTY OF EXTRAS | 5 TVs, DVD player and more. As owners, we’re seasoned (and picky!) travelers and long-time VRBO users. We prefer comfort and quality amenities. We've tried to match the best of our rental experiences here at our mountain home. Whether you're sleeping, preparing a meal, entertaining family and friends, relaxing by the fireplace or settling down in a comfy chair on the deck to a good book and a cup of steaming coffee and a view of the fall foliage, we've prepared our Echota unit with comfort and satisfaction in mind.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We've been married 25 years and love to travel with our three children. For years, we had a 'second home' at Myrtle Beach and loved staying there with family and friends...but at heart, we've always preferred the mountains.
Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk, NC, USA:
We began searching for a 'mountain home' in 2006. After three years and many visits to gated communities and resorts all over North Carolina and Virginia, we settled on Echota as our destination of choice. From there, it was all about finding the perfect place - with 'the view' being paramount.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The security of a gated community. The beauty of the views from a mountain ridge. The array of amenities on-site. The extraordinary adventures found in this region. And all the comforts of home...we guarantee you'll feel at home away from home.
