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 Foscoe

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!

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!

Sooo Nice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to visit the Boone area for the first time. We stayed four nights in August 2015 in this lovely condo. It is very nicely appointed with everything that guests need. We liked the level entry, ceiling fans and air conditioning if needed. We also liked the nice comfortable furnishings - so much nicer than staying in a motel. The location is central to Boone and Banner Elk. The owners are very helpful and responsive so that you feel comfortable that if an issue arises it will be addressed appropriately. Would definitely rent again and recommend this rental to others. Thank you! Linda D.

Wonderful place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL time staying at your condo!! The place was so nice and exactly what we needed! It was so nice to be able to stay in a home instead of a hotel. We loved being able to sit out on the deck and watch the sunrise over the mountains each morning. My son loved the pool and we swam every day. We mostly had the pool to ourselves each time too. My boys also enjoyed fishing in the ponds.

The owners were great and provided quick responses to my emails and questions. They also provided easy to follow instructions for opening/closing of their home during our visit. If you are looking for a mountain getaway - I highly recommend staying at this home!

Would go back in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous about this family vacation, as it was the first time taking our family of 6 (two new twin babies) on a trip. The condo was absolutely perfect for a relaxing time together. It really helped me focus on my family since I wasn't concerned with the accommodations. The older kids LOVED the pools and you cannot get a better pool view of the mountains. My husband and I enjoyed the balcony and the open feel to the place. The owners are super friendly, easily accessible, and very easy to work with. This mama is so happy that our first big family vacation went well due to this great spot! Thanks, Mr. Hutchinson!

Owner's Response: Boy it sure is fun having renters with nice comments. It is especially great to help in affecting "first timers to the mountains" enjoy their stay. We started that process of visiting the mountains over 30 years ago and never get tired of it. When our renters respond, as you have, it is more than awesome. Thank you.

Everything Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many ways to describe the experience of renting this condo. As I type these words, I am listening to the majestic sounds of the outdoors while reclining on the patio lounger, looking at rolling clouds highlighted by the sunrise. An occasional cool breeze bursts out making the trees speak peacefully. This place was everything that I hoped it would be. My wife and I needed a little vacation getaway and found a big reward here. Everything about the process of renting from VRBO and their property owners is easy. The accommodations were exceptional and well taken care of. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson for a superior vacation experience. We will be back!
