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.

Great Mountain Views from a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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.

Family Mountain Getaway Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have more happy with our choice to stay at this sweet mountain retreat. It truly was a treat for our family ... from the amazing views to the comforts of home in this 2 bedroom. We had everything we needed for our stay. Great care and pride in every detail with the décor, comfortable beds and cozy living room with the fireplace. Perfect amount of space for our family of 4 (kids ages 12 & 14) We enjoyed the nearby ski resort at Sugar Mountain and snow tubing at Hawksnest. With the colder temps and snow precipitation, conditions were optimal! The condo is in close proximity to Boone and Blowing Rock and enjoyed time in town for shopping and dining out. The condo was perfect for eating in as well. Kitchen well equipped. Thank you again Ward Family for opening up your cozy condo for our family to enjoy! We hope to return soon in the warmer months to experience the area in a different way with hiking and exploring. Blessed and grateful, The Watson Family

My sister and I had a wonderful visit to Banner Elk. This home was beautiful with very picturesque views of the mountains. The condominium was perfect for our little winter getaway!

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This condo was just perfect in every way! Super clean and comfortable, and beautifully decorated!! We stayed here wanting something with an awesome view, and Echota on the Ridge does not disappoint! Fabulous views from the balcony as well as everywhere on the property.

We came to ski and tube, however the weather didn't cooperate. That didn't stop us from enjoying our time here, as this condo is located in a very central location-close to all kinds of hiking, restaurants and shopping. It was great being only about 20-30 from Boone, Banner Elk, Linville, and super close to Grandfather Mountain.

The condo was very easy to check in and out of. Ann provided us with impeccable directions/instructions on gaining access to the property. The keyless entry was such an easy way to come and go and not worry about keeping track of a key.

We would love to return someday very soon, and hope we can rent this condo again! You will not be disappointed if you rent this one! Thank you Ann and Ken!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed from the moment we walked thru the door...very clean and cozy. We didn't want for anything. The owner was very kind and more than helpful to assure that we would be comfortable for our 4 day stay. The condo is centrally located to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Linville. The view were both amazing and breath taking. We will definitely stay here again in the near future.
