About The Owner

We have lived in Greensboro,NC for over 30 years now. We had often come to this area to vacation and decided it was a great time to buy where we like to play. We have 2 grown children who also enjoy coming to enjoy with their children. It has been a great experience and we enjoy sharing with others when we can't be there. Sue is a Real Estate agent in Greensboro for over 23 years and she knew this was the right location to make an investment!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

After visiting the area on many mini-vacations for 15+ years and owning a time share week in Banner Elk we decided to own. Echota Woods is the BEST.

What makes this condo unique

The peace and friendliness of the community is a definite drawing card. It is like going back in time with beautiful mountain views, great hiking trials, unique shops and the great Tanger Outlet Mall for great shopping for almost everything. Snow tubing in Hawkseye is only minutes away as well as Sugar and Beech Mts. for winter skiing fun. There is Art in the Park in Blowing Rock during Spring and Summer months which features unique crafters from all over the country. There are theater events, outdoor musical events and so much more! The famous Chetola Resort offers a wonderful outdoor symphony on the grounds in June. This is always a fun and entertaining evening! Our unit offers split bedroom areas for extra privacy and each have adjoining bathrooms! Our deck area is very private and looks out to a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains! We hope you will come soon for a visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from a wonderful stay at your wonderful condo and absolutely loved it! The condo was very warm and charming. It was very clean and had all the necessities one would need. The location was right off hwy 105 and only seven miles from Boone. The Echota community was a very beautiful location as well. The view from the balcony was stunning! We enjoyed the sunrise each morning over the mountain in the back of the condo. The balcony was very private for a condo. We would absolutely visit again at this wonderful condo!

The Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

My SO and I were trying to escape the awful summer heat in the Sandhills. We found the perfect place for 3 weeks. I will try to list briefly all the pluses I gave to this Grandfather Mt. condo. in Echota.

1. Ground level---no lugging up and down stairs.

2.This condo was like being in our own home. Perfect decor for this mountain retreat. Great mattress (we have encountered some bummers.) Towels and linens were VG .All the needed condiments and more were provided and made our shopping easier. Two TVs. And having 2 bathrooms was really a luxury. Immaculate !!!

3. Our very favorite part of this condo was the deck. Comfortable and great place to have morning coffee or evening wine.Lovely peaceful view. Very little noise pollution.

4.2 pools and a fitness room. I used the indoor pool frequently---great pool. The outdoor pool is located in an absolutely grand spot. The view is awesome. The Echota clubhouse is also beautiful.

5. My SO not only hiked one of the Grandfather Mt. trails, he had the good fortune to join a bird watching group at the Community Park in Valle Crueses.

6. Dining in Banner Elk and Blowing Rock was good. There are many wineries in the area. Heard good things about them.

If we visit this area again, we will go in July. The 2 local colleges have many offerings in concerts, theatre, etc. but shut down in August.

Our landlord, Hutch, was very helpful when we needed him.

I have already recommended this lovely vacation spot to our friends.

Relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a short get away from the heat of Flat Rock, NC. We loved this condo! It was so nice not to have to lug our belongings up or down steps as this unit is on the main entry level; quite a plus. Inside the condo, we found it to exceed our expectations both in comfort and serenity. We really enjoyed the balcony throughout our stay. The hummingbirds kept us entertained.

We spent quite a bit of time at the outdoor pool/hot tub. The setting of the pool area is stunning. While I spent my time in the pool, my husband enjoyed reading under the covered portion of the clubhouse. He was so glad to find a place in the shade while I enjoyed the sun.

The only draw back we found was the timing of our visit as it was move in weekend at App. State and the roads were heavily congested as were the restaurants in the area. This, of course, is no fault of the owners. We certainly hope to rent this unit again. We will check into area events/happenings to avoid the crowds on our future getaways.

Thanks for all your quick correspondence during the rental process :)

Excellent Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 3 nights and absolutely loved our stay here. The view from the balcony is fantastic, great for late evening talks. The unit itself was very clean and the linens were so comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! The outdoor pool, which is about 3-4 miles or more away was fantastic! It had the most beautiful view and was very nice and clean. Our kids (2 and 5) had such a great time. I loved the spacious feel of the condo and that it felt like home and we were able to spread things out. The owners were very nice and easy to get in touch with, however we didn't need to contact them for anything the whole weekend! This unit is for sale, so more than likely the next time we want to rent here, it may not be available...that part makes us sad. The only thing I would recommend, would be to put black out curtains in the front bedroom. My kids woke up the first two mornings at 6:30 am thinking it was time to wake up. The last night, we moved them to the Master where there were curtains. Thanks for such a great vacation stay!

We had a wonderful weekend in Boone. The condo was very cozy and comfortable. It was nice and clean and owners were very helpful. I would definitely stay there again. All the attractions we wanted to visit were close by. Great location and lovely view from the deck.

Comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Boone for family weekend at ASU. This condo is tastefully decorated and very homey. Everything was clean and comfortable. It was about a 10 minute drive to ASU. There is a nice, quiet deck overlooking a wooded area with mountains in the background. The leaves were still pretty. I would stay here again. The owner was very nice to deal with.

Very enjoyable time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Boone and enjoyed going on hikes near the condo. The condo is very well taken care of and was nicer in real life than what the pictures on here showed. The decor in the condo was very nice and we enjoyed the view from the back patio. The best part was the owner is very helpful and easy to communicate with. Thanks!
