About Ann Ward

As you can see, I am an ASU alumni!

Ann Ward purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ann Ward chose Banner Elk

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything there that you need to make your stay enjoyable. The view is great. Like that it's on the main level so you don't have to go up stairs to get in. Went 12/8/17 and got to see snow which was beautiful. Great place!

Perfect Thanksgiving Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay! The property is more stunning than the photos capture, and we will definitely be back! Echota on the Ridge is such a breathtaking community and the unit was incredibly well kept, functional, and cozy for our long weekend in the mountains. The property was about a 20 minute drive to just about everywhere we wanted to go, easy to access from the main road, yet felt completely tucked away once you got up the mountain into the gated complex. Can't wait to return.

Comfortable, clean, and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights right before Thanksgiving and loved this property. Situated high on a hill facing west, we had beautiful views of the mountains and wonderful sunrises.

The condo was a perfect size for a small family with a large master bedroom and second bedroom with two twin beds. All the accoutrements of your home kitchen were available if you wanted to cook meals in the condo.

But the best part was the location which was 15 minutes from Boone, 30 minutes from Blowing Rock, 15 minutes from Grandfather Mountain, 10 minutes from Sugar Mountain, less than 2 hours to Asheville and 2 hours to Greensboro.

I would highly recommend this property.

Very lovely, comfortable condo.

We had a very pleasant stay. The unit was very clean and well accommodated. Great view of Grandfather Mountain, centrally located for our hikes and excursions. We would definitely stay here again if available next time we visit the area. Thank you.
