About Nancy Crafton

We both grew up in the Pittsburgh, PA area and the Boone area reminds us very much of Western PA with the rolling mountains, rivers and streams and especially the winter weather. We have lived in Winston Salem NC for the past 36 years so NC is now home. We enjoy all the unique shops and sites that make the NC mountains a special place to visit.

Why Nancy Crafton chose Boone

As our three lovely daughters grew, married and moved away the empty nesters needed a new project and place to visit when time permits.The project was decorating and we decorated the condo the way we would want it if we were going to live in it fulltime. We really don't have a lot of time yet to visit the mountains so thought we would share it with others and rent our place. When looking for a place in the NC mountains we decided on Echota because of the uniqueness of the development. The style of the condos fits a mountain setting to a T! We basically bought the 'view' of Grandfather mountain but received so much more. Our condo is in what is called a 4 Plex meaning there are a total of 4 condos in the building. Two upper and two lower units. We bought an upper level once again, for the view. We have 2 daughters and two sons-in-law who graduated from Appalachian State University so the mountains of NC are very near and dear to many hearts in our family. Our other daughter graduated from UNC Chapel Hill and her husband from UNCC. They also love the mountains and are close enough to visit at times. This community is very well taken care of and well run so we feel very fortunate to be home owners at Echota.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is an upper unit with great views of Grandfather Mountain. The fresh mountain air makes for a great nights sleep! The screen doors off the deck can be left open at night for true mountain air sleeping! Doesn't get much better than that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The condo was perfect and exactly as described. The accommodation worked well for us and was very clean and welcoming. Everything we needed to prepare breakfasts or the odd dinner was there and they even had a keurig for my morning coffee (so take some coffee pods!). The really nice thing about Echota on the Ridge is that it has an indoor and outdoor pool and gym, and the outdoor pool was just amazing. It was heated, so that even though the air temperature was a very comfortable 75 degrees, the pool felt 5-10 degrees warmer than that. The kids loved it. We loved the hot tub! There was so much to do around the Blowing Rock and Boone area and we had a fantastic time zip-lining and white-water rafting!"

Great Spot for a Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the condo. It had plenty of room for us. With two active boys, we took advantage of the amenities (pool, workout area, and basketball court) and loved taking in the view each morning. The property is very clean and well-maintained. We were within just a few minutes' drive to the original Mast General Store, hiking trails, and Tweetsie Railroad (and brand new climbing center-awesome!) Nancy was gracious and sent over some of her favorite places to grab a bite-we took her suggestions and they were great.

Wonderful place to take a break, we would highly recommend!

Gorgeous condo with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this Echota condo! It was beautifully decorated with lots of comfortable seating in the living room that had an awesome view of Grandfather Mountain. The kitchen had every possible utensil needed in order to whip up breakfast, lunch or dinner! Even better, the condo was spotless!

We felt safe being in a gated community with other beautiful single and multifamily units. Foscoe Rentals, the management company, was right outside the gates and answered any questions we had.

The condo was close to some wonderful fly fishing spots located in the surrounding area. This was perfect because fly fishing was the initial reason for our visit, but we soon realized that there were plenty of shopping spots in Boone and Blowing Rock! We all found activities that we enjoyed very much!

We ate at The New Public House & Hotel, Six Pence Pub, Sunrise Grill & Our Daily Bread. They were all great and did not disappoint us! We also managed a day trip to Asheville which we all enjoyed.

We would strongly recommend this property to our friends and family!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking time to do a great review. We are thrilled the place was spotless (Foscoe has a wonderful team in place that makes sure it is) and that you enjoyed your stay. We tried to make it a "home away from home" feel and sounds like it worked for you! Glad you found many activities in the area and beyond. Thank you for renting our condo and please keep it in mind for any future trips to the High Country! Nancy and Tom

Excellent relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to stay at this wonderful condo. The view is amazing! Not to mention the relaxing atmosphere and cleanliness. We will definitely return for our yearly trip next year! It is perfect as one bedroom is upstairs and the other down. When having two small families stay, there is enough separate space for comfort.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo! We initially were hoping to find a mountain cabin in a remote, private setting but this turned out to be so much better! Wonderful views of Grandfather Mountain and the surrounding mountains. The unit was perfectly decorated and stocked with family games! It also has a wonderful kitchen. And it is very convenient to ASU and downtown Boone.We cannot wait to go back!!
