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

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 overall; however 3rd floor tenants were very noisy late Friday night.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples in the area for a wedding. The condo is lovely, and the photos do not do justice to the view. We could not spend enough time on that lovely porch, watching the sunrise dissolve the morning fog, or the play of shadows as the sun set over the mountains. Ann is wonderful to work with, and I would definitely stay there again!

Good to know: the kitchen and bathrooms were also gorgeous, but you'll want to bring your own shampoo & conditioner, vinegar & olive oil, etc. None of this was promised in the rental, and the likelihood of it being there probably varies from place to place, and visit to visit, depending on what others leave behind, etc. Just good to be aware for your planning purposes.

Again, wonderful visit!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the view amazing (sunrises were breathtaking), the condo charming, comfortable and clean, the pool available to guests in a beautiful setting, but Ann the owner was attentive, quick to respond to inquiries and friendly. We could not have asked for a better location or experience for our vacation. Thank you!
