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 mountains 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!"

Not as relaxing as we had hoped

  • 3 of 5
We arrived at this condo hoping for a great relaxing week. The condo itself is very nice and decorated well. The problems we had are the following: hanging up clothes did not take long as there was only six hangers in entire condo, master bed creaked every time we turned over and pillows were not at all comfortable, outside lights are a problem if you need darkness to sleep and floorboards creaked everywhere. All in all, most of these can be taken care of if owner decides to. Echota is outside of Boone about 7 miles on 105S and it can get old going back and forth. There are pools and fitness facilities on property for guests to use. They are very nice. We enjoyed an exceptional meal at Artisanal Restaurant in Banner Elk while we were there. This restaurant is not cheap but is exceptional!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you were not as relaxed as you had hoped to be. We appreciate all your feedback. We have not been to the condo since May and at that time there were plenty of hangers plus 15 bed pillows to choose from in the condo. Hangers definitely have a way of walking off and bed pillows get moved around so we will make sure that at least 2 of the six pillows on the master bed are soft ones so travelers have a choice. The bed creaking was not an issue when we were there but will look into that as well. All of these are easy fixes and we appreciate your bringing our attention to this matter. So glad you enjoyed the amenities and were able to eat at the Artisanal Restaurant. We like that the condo is halfway between Boone and a restaurant like Artisanal that is in Banner Elk but if you were spending every day traveling to Boone the 7 miles might get old. Thanks again for your comments and we will do everything to fix these issues on our next trip to the mountains.

The property was delightful.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 6 nights. The accomadations were very nice. The kitchen was well equipped. The back deck had a great view. Although the condo is in a community we felt we were all alone in the mountains. The indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs were great. Close enough to Boone for groceries and restaurants. Plenty of things to do in this area.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our stay this past summer here at the condo was fantastic! It is spacious and comfortable, just like the photos depict, as well as very clean and remarkably well maintained. I especially liked the décor, and the view of Grandfather Mountain from the balcony is excellent, especially in the early mornings and evenings.

The condo is situated reasonably close to many of the area's local attractions. I recommend taking the drive to the top of Grandfather Mountain as well as visiting the unique shops and stores in the area such as the Mast General Store.

I strongly agree with many of the positive comments written in the previous reviews and would strongly recommend this condo to anyone visting the area.
