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.
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.
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!
"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!"
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.
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!!
Beautiful condo with all the comforts of home (maybe even more!). Great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of Grandfather Mountain. Our stay here was wonderful.
From the moment you enter the front door to the warm and welcoming, beautiful condo complete with picturesque mountain view, you begin to relax and know you will enjoy your stay!
All the comforts of home in this tastefully furnished and well equipped property. Attention to detail is evident.
I will definitely return, and would highly recommend to others!
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway, and this home more than met our expectations. The furnishings were lovely and everything was very well maintained, there was nothing that we needed that was not provided, and even more than we would have ever hoped for.
The first afternoon we were there we sat in the gliders on the back porch and enjoyed the beautiful view of Grandfather Mountain with the warm sun shining on our faces. The next evening it started snowing and snowed all day Friday, but that did not keep us from exploring nearby areas.
I think the most pleasant surprise about the condo was the comfortable furnishings. You could curl up in any of the comfy chairs in the living room and read a good book, or take a much needed nap on the fluffy beds.
All in all, this was a perfect retreat for a few days, and I hated when it was time to head back home. I would definitely recommend this property to our friends, and we hope to visit again also. We may even let the children come!
Our family of 5, which included my 81 yr. old mother, really enjoyed this unit! The layout of the condo provides privacy when needed, but also lends itself to family gathering with the large open great room & it's comfy furniture, warm gas fireplace, & the awesome view of Grandfather Mountain from the over-sized windows & deck. The fine furnishings & decor are excellent & tasteful, with nothing spared! The kitchen was the most well-equipped we have ever experienced! The location is convenient to the Boone/Blowing Rock areas, & the amenities of the gated community are a plus. Our entire family loved this condo & we will not even consider staying anywhere else for our future trips to the Boone area. Thanks, Nancy, for sharing your lovely "home" with us!
