Find your home away from home in this hidden Carolina retreat
When you need a more tranquil experience to help you forget the city for a little while, few places suit the purpose better than the mountains. In Charlotte, we are in close proximately to beautiful beaches and mountains. An impressively large amount of people are buying vacation homes and this state is the perfect place to do so. If you are looking to purchase a vacation home in the mountains, you may want to consider the Echota community.
A premium, centralized location is one of the things that make this community one of the most desirable in the area. Echota is very close to Blowing Rock and Boone. Blowing Rock packs in a surprising number of restaurants and stores. Boone is also a very desirable place to own a vacation home because of its lively downtown area with unique stores, restaurants, art galleries and college campus. Many residents like to visit Appalachian State University’s beautiful campus for concerts, festivals and football games.
From the moment you pull into Echota, you will feel right at home. This family-friendly community has an amazing view of Grandfather Mountain that surrounds the community with eclectic colors, fragrances and scenery that almost forces you to slow down one last time before escaping inside. The rugged timber frame mountain homes with high ceilings, spacious decks and outdoor kitchens are perfect for entertaining. The vacation homes range from one bedroom to five bedroom options, giving enough space for a couple’s retreat or a multi-generational get-together. The homes reflect their mountain scenery with lodge-type structures that integrate craftsman elements.
This exquisite rustic-chic community offers a host of indoor and outdoor amenities. Outdoor activities are all family-friendly and include a bocce ball and croquet court, putting green, fishing ponds, hiking trails and a 25-acre riverpark. In the clubhouses, the community’s owners host live bands and local breweries for adults to enjoy. During the fall and winter months, Echota still has much to offer its residents. You can take a swim in the indoor pool, relax in the hot tub or play pool in the clubhouse.
An exclusive feature for property owners is the onsite property management company, Foscoe Rentals. This allows owners to generate additional income and gives outside visitors a chance to enjoy the community.
Overall, Echota focuses on allowing their residents to “own their experiences.” Whether you are looking for a vacation home or a weekend getaway, Echota has something for everyone.
