Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2012
We had previously been regular renters at Echota on the Ridge and enjoyed it so much we decided to buy this unit when it came on the market.
We just love the peace of sitting on the deck and watching the ever changing sky. The sunsets are amazing. This unit is on the Valle Crucis side of the development and so there is no road noise. Just the sounds of nature. The community outdoor pool is simply amazing, situated on side of mountain with rock gardens and waterfall as landscaping. We can cook whatever we want or choose from a wide selection of restaurants, including several gourmet level.
