The Echota Resort is nestled in the heart of the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains, between Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock. It is a gated community offering visitors peace and tranquility surrounded by natures most spectacular views among the High Country peaks.
When you are not taking in the gorgeous profile views of Grandfather Mountain and the surrounding ridges from the huge oversized deck, you can relax by the fire and watch TV or a movie on the wide-screen HD ready television.
After relaxing by the fire you can head down to the pool and spa for a refreshing swim in the heated indoor pool or a soak in the hot tub. If you would rather work up a sweat, you can use the well-appointed exercise room.
In the wintertime a whole new experience of winter sporting awaits you. The ski areas of Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Hawks Nest and Appalachian Ski Mountain are just minutes away.
Enjoy skiing, hiking, biking, white water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, golfing or just getting away from it all. This home nestled in the mountains is the ideal place to create a memorable anytime getaway.
My husband and I first moved to North Carolina in 1999. Within a week of living here we took a trip to the Blowing Rock area and fell in love with it. We have continued to visit atleast twice a year. Once in the summer to escape the hot and humid weather and once in the Winter to enjoy the skiing and sledding. There is just something about the mountains and the feeling of escaping from the busy city life.
Echota offers the most to visiting families.
