This was the perfect getaway for our family...we have vacationed in Foscoe all my life, I attended Appalachian State University, and I LOVE the mountains. This HomeAway from home rental provided my husband, my 3 children, my mother (who appreciated the handicapped accessibility of the property) and I the opportunity to rediscover the peace and tranquility we needed; taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We were not only able to enjoy the local attractions of Mystery Hill & Horn in the West, but we also took in a little shopping at Boone Mall and Shops on the Parkway; all within a short drive. During our stay we also were able to take in the wonder of Altapass Apple Orchard located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as gem mining and panning for gold at Emerald Village in Little Switzerland both within an hour’s drive from Foscoe. My family utilized all that Echota had to offer with our daily trips to the heated indoor pool and hot tub, our morning hikes, as well as fishing in the stocked ponds on site. Even before our departure, we began planning our next trip to our new home away from home.
