About Ann Ward

As you can see, I am an ASU alumni!

Ann Ward purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ann Ward chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose to purchase a condo in the Echota on the Ridge Community as it fit our needs of wanting a second home without serious upkeep issues. We enjoy the spectacular view, the ever changing weather and the amenities afforded to us in the residential community and in the Watauga County area.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was PERFECT! When other people wrote about this place and said the pictures do not do it justice, I wondered how this rental could look any more beautiful than it was, but they were RIGHT! This place is exceptional The location was ideal for all local activities for our family. We will definitely be back.

Thanks again!

Great Mountain Views from a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular 180 degree views with lots of windows to enjoy that view at almost 4,000 feet elevation, located near the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Banner Elk, NC. The condo is beautifully appointed with everything you need for a short, or even a seasonal stay. Beds are very comfortable.

We stayed in February and enjoyed the snow. Access was adequate since the development provides snow and ice removal. Several ski slopes are nearby. Our son skis at Sugar Mountain every year. However, the summers are also beautiful with very comfortable temperatures. Although there is air conditioning, you won't need it in summer. We make it a point to visit Echota on the Ridge every summer.

You will not be disappointed in the community amenities, as well. An indoor and outdoor pool, fitness center and a club house with a pool table add to the enjoyment.

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic long weekend at the condo. Location is great halfway between Banner Elk and Boone. It was a great girls getaway. We had perfect weather, and the sunrise was a breath taking view from the back porch every morning. The condo is perfect for a small family or group getaway. The condo had everything we needed other than food and drinks. Very clean and everything is well taken care of. Highly recommend coming here and I will definitely be coming back for my next trip to the mountains.
