Why Sam and L:aura Johnson chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Windsong is a special place for us, with a breathtaking view, and ALL the comforts of home!! The Foscoe-Banner Elk Area is an area with lots to do, and the Best Food and Dining options.

What makes this condo unique

We love our large double size Jacuzzi and our Garden walkout, as unique to our Windsong. The quiet is unbelievable, with screen doors on key walkouts to create a flow-thru natural ventilation cooling effect! Furnished like a beautiful home, with a Sunset View to die for, Windsong is truly relaxing beyond description.

Great condo in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful stay at Echota on the Ridge and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure activities in the area: white water rafting out of Banner Elk, ziplining at Hawksnest, Blowing Rock, Linville Falls, and finally relaxing at the pool and hot tub with an amazing view over the mountains.

The apartment was spacious and clean. We experienced a dramatic storm from the balcony and finally had to come inside when the rain started blowing in, but the rest of the time we sat out there and soaked in the views.

Wonderful Windsong

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at Windsong. Everything was perfect! The cool mountain temperatures felt GREAT to us (we are from Florida!!) the unit was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. We especially liked the glorious view off the back porch and all of the amenities that Echota has to offer. Would highly recommend this unit to others!!

One word-AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

A friend recommended Windsong and we are glad he did. The unit was clean, comfortable and stylishly decorated. Everything needed was provided and all the details were attended to upon arrival. Check in and out were seemless and the entire vacation experience was outstanding! Overall it was a perfect 3 day weekend for our family-and oh yeah- the VIEW IS SPECTACULAR!

Fabulous winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

WindSong at Echota on the Ridge offers views that are beyond believable! Our family had a wonderful winter vacation that included lots of snowfall! WindSong kept us nice and cozy and offers all of the comforts of home, from the decor to the kitchen gadgets , cozy blankets, and bath amenities. Our kids loved our trip down to the indoor pool in Echota when it was too cold to venture outdoors and we enjoyed the hottub. Every morning waking up to the views from WindSong was breath taking! Getting out to ski and tube was not a problem as Echota and the road down were constantly brined and scraped. We look forward to staying at WindSong again!

So Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Windsong. I have never felt as comfortable in a rental as I did there. They thought of everything and it was SO clean!!! Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with our visit but it was so nice to have such a comfortable place to come "home" to. Convenient to Boone and also to the ski areas. We would definitely stay here again!
