Lovely property with maintenance problems
This townhouse is more attractive than the pictures and we enjoyed the view of mountains especially during the unexpected snow. Management does a great job of clearing roads and putting gravel in parking lots - but heed the advice to have four wheel drive during the winter! Kids enjoyed the pool although driving back wet from the other development was not ideal.
Our party of eight, spanning three generations, booked for three nights, including New Year’s Eve. We had the first problem at check in when we found the kitchen drawers were loaded with mouse poop. Maintenance came quickly and cleaned out. Next morning, more mouse droppings and the master bath toilet leaked all over the floor. Again maintenance responded quickly. The wax ring on the toilet was worn out. They were able to make a temporary fix which held through our visit. They again cleaned out the mouse droppings and placed traps in the drawers. I did not think that would be effective but they assured me it would be. Meanwhile we had to thoroughly wash everything we wanted to use. That afternoon, we had to call maintenance again because one of the eight of us took a 10-minute shower and two hours later there was still no hot water. They turned up the heat one notch.
On the second morning, we found the mice had come back, eaten all the bait and pooped again. Two of us were able to take a shower and then we were out of hot water. At this point we quit calling because clearly there was not going to be a fix.
I can understand that when the weather gets cold, mice can be a problem. However, knowing that, the rental company should include on its pre-check in list, to inspect the property for mouse droppings. They should also thoroughly disinfect the drawers which did not occur while we were there.
Be aware that if your party has more than a couple people, you could have the problem we did: No daily showers because the hot water will be gone. Additionally, anyone in the downstairs master bedroom should bring ear plugs and plan to use a white noise app because you can hear every foot step people upstairs take and flushing the upstairs toilet creates a roaring noise.
Again, this is a pretty property in a beautiful location but property management needs to improve. I explained all that happpened when returning keys to rental office. The maintenance fellow - very pleasant - felt bad. The office people did not seem to care, let alone offer a partial refund as they should have.
We enjoyed our trip to Boone. Echota is 10 min from everything you need. Great place for a run if you want a challenge with beautiful views.
Overall very pleased
We rented a top unit in a triplex in the Echote on the Ridge development. We were two families, each with two kids between the ages of 3 and 9 (so 8 people total). The unit had a beautiful, unencumbered view of the mountain range and was very comfortable with two exceptions: the pillow-top mattress in the master bedroom was very squishy and the loft sleeping arrangement for the kids meant that the grown-ups had to socialize in whispers after they had gone to bed. In the summer, this would not have been an issue because we could have gone out on the deck - but it was too cold for deck-sitting this late November visit. We made use of the indoor pool and hot tub at the neighboring Echota development and I also used the fitness room at Echota on the Ridge which was completely adequate, and within walking distance of our unit. Disappointed to see there was no option for recycling, even at the dumpster location. We carted our recycling home. Also Roscoe rental was very helpful and accommodating. Had a great experience interacting with them. Overall, very pleased with our experience.
Perfect Birthday Retreat!
Really beautiful townhouse, conveniently located near Banner Elk, Boone, & Blowing Rock. We stayed three nights with four adults and two children. The townhouse was extremely clean with plenty of towels. We chose this townhouse because of the bedroom set up. It was wonderful to have the bedroom with a king and queen bed. We enjoyed the location being close to the pool. The high elevation made the view from the porch nice. Trees across the street partially obstructed the view but it was still a nice tranquil place to unwind. Views from the pool balcony were breath taking and the pool and clubhouse were spectacular. We had issues with cell phone service and, with no unit wifi access, this made it difficult to research golf and tourist attractions located close by. We only cooked breakfast and found the kitchen supplies to be adequate. Kitchen cooking utensils were quite worn and should probably be replaced. It would be nice if the owners would add unit wifi access for renters' use. We would most definitely stay here again and, in all likelihood, will do so again real soon.
Nice house but NO view...
We recently stayed here while on summer vacation in NC. The house was very clean and nicely furnished. We had four adults and two kids in our party and we were all comfortable. Although the previous review stated that the house has a "lovely view", the view from the outdoor deck is of another townhome and the fairly busy, often times noisy, road below. The area is beautiful and the community is very nice, however this house does NOT have a view.
The kitchen is sparsely equipped. To be fair, we love to cook and are just used to a lot more cooking equipment. We made due with what they had but if you are a cook, just be prepared for minimal tools to work with.
The house is walking distance to the clubhouse, which is nice. The driveway is STEEP.
The community is located within short driving distance of Grandfather Mountain, zip lining at Hawks Nest, the Mast General Store and the grocery is close by.
Overall we enjoyed staying at this property but will probably look for a house with a better view next time.
This is a great rental. We stayed 3 nights with 5 adults and 2 small children. We had lots of room. The rental is very clean and beautifully decorated. It has a lovely view from near the top of a mountain. We will use this listing again when in the area.
