If you must keep 'in touch',there is free WiFi in the condo. In the living room there is a large Vizio Smart HD television and dvd player as well as a large Vizio HD television in the master bedroom.

There are wonderful views of Grandfather Mountanin and the surrounding hillsides with all the beautiful scenery of the winter season from either the comfy swivel rockers in the livingroom or from the master bedroom. When the evenings are cool, you can enjoy the warmth of the electric fireplace.

Our condo is a WALK IN, NO STAIRS unit that was newly furnished recently, and has all that one would need. Included in the rental are all the towels, bed linens, soap and shampoos, dish detergent and towels as well as paper products plus washer and dryer. All you have to bring is your toothbrush and clothes.

Two couples, a family with children, or grandparents wishing to spend quality time with their grandchildren will also find our accommodations perfect for their needs.

Our condo is kid friendly with children's books, games, videos, and magazines. There is also a nice assortment of books and magazines for adults. There is WiFi in the condo as was mentioned above. Our condo is immaculate and very comfortable for everyone. Guests have written in our guestbook that they were impressed with the completely stocked kitchen which had all that they needed to prepare meals. They loved the cleanliness of the condo and the spectacular views.

Guests have complete use of Echota's 2 Clubhouses, Fitness Centers,

Heated Indoor Pool and Outdoor Pool at Echota on the Ridge, in summer, and Hot Tub. Catch and release fishing in our two ponds.

Escape from the Stresses of the Everyday World to a truly Peaceful Natural Setting that is still close to all the many activities that this unique area has to offer.

We sincerely regret that no pets or smoking is permitted.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The only way our stay could have been better was if we could have stayed longer. We only had 2 nights at the condo. It was perfect, only 10 minutes from Sugar Mountain Ski Resort which was great for our late nights at the slopes. Never had a chance to use the pool or hot tub. Would definitely book here again. Give it 5 stars for sure.

Amazing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time visiting Boone and staying at Echota. The condo was very comfortable and we enjoyed our Thanksgiving very much. My husband enjoyed the fitness facility every morning and we loved the views. Very nice property. We will definately tell others of the wonderful time we had in Boone. Our visits to shops and restaurants in the area were met with warm, welcoming people. We loved our getaway! We will definately be back and use your property again. It's in a perfect location to everything.

Comfortable, convenient condo

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable condo in an area convenient to all surrounding communities. The condo offered easy access for anyone with disabilities. It was well-furnished, although it was difficult to get out of some living room chairs. Beautiful view from the deck. Hope to return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything the owner's promised. Starting with no stairs to get to the front door. The comfort of the condo was such that we had trouble leaving it to venture out. All the necessities were there (even though we could not find a pizza pan). :)

We loved having coffee (morning) and some wine (evening) on the spacious deck. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. To start off with, no stairs to get to the condo. The comfort of the condo was so inviting, but we actually did make it out to see the countryside and local attractions.

All the necessities were in the condo (even though we could not locate a pizza pan) made our short stay all the better. We loved having our coffee (in the morning) and a glass of wine (at night) on the spacious deck. It was great to see Grandfather's Mountain for there. We will definitely be back.

Convenient and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this same resort condo unit at Echota, and we'll definitely be back. The description and photos are accurate. Very pleasant walk-in (no stairs) unit. Very clean and well maintained. Convenient to Boone, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain.

Our trip this time included visits to the Grandfather Vineyard, Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, three different Mast General Stores, Doe Ridge Pottery, Hawk's Nest and a 50-mile trek on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Dining included Makota's and Banner Elk Cafe and Lodge.

This was our 4th stay at Echota. We love the location, the views, and the comfort of the condos. This condo did not disappoint, We enjoyed the comfort it provided for our 3 week stay. It was clean, and the best equipped of all the condos we have rented. I would recommend this condo.
