Boone, Banner Elk or Blowing Rock, NC: Take Your Pick
That’s your new address. When you have a mountain home at Echota, it’s not one High Country town—but all three.
Echota. In the Cherokee language, it means, “a peaceful haven.” Perhaps no other real estate community is more aptly named. But unlike many communities that are incomplete or that only exist on the drawing board—Echota is very real. Echota is a community of elegantly crafted, mountain-style condominiums, townhomes and real estate. Today 500 families are already enjoying the maintenance-free luxury of Echota with ridgeline views of Grandfather Mountain or the Watauga River Valley. You’ll find Echota in the heart of North Carolina’s celebrated High Country, centrally located between Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock.
With so much to do and so much to see in the High Country, you’re always close to the fun, and the fun is close to you. The amenities at Echota rival those of some of the world’s finest mountain resorts. Every day, homeowners and their guests enjoy the use of two private clubhouses. Swimming every season at Echota’s indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Fishing in stocked ponds. And spending time together enjoying nature at the Riverpark. Best of all, Echota’s amenities are all complete—and debt-free.
Chalakee, Echota’s newest neighborhood, embodies all the things that make Echota great—breathtaking views and outstanding value—plus innovative features including rugged timber frame construction, nine-foot ceilings and spacious decks with outdoor kitchens.
Maybe you’ve been waiting for just the right time to buy mountain real estate. Or, maybe you’ve been looking for just the right place. A real estate community that offers the finest views, a variety of debt-free, resort-style amenities and of course, the right High Country location. The opportunity you’ve been waiting for is available today. The opportunity is Echota.
Bring your friends and family (and a lawnchair!), and enjoy Echota’s new Summer Concert Series!
Just in case you needed another reason to run away to the mountains this summer, Echota is now offering a Summer Concert Series for owners, renters and their guests. On the second Saturday of every month, June through October, we’ll feature a different local band in an outdoor concert at the top of the mountain in Chalakee.
Our featured band on July 13th will be Soul Benefactor, the High Country’s premier funky Soul and Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll band. Since forming in 2007, Soul Benefactor has been cranking out some of the best grooves from the ‘60s and ‘70s to crowds of all ages.
Our series will give you a chance to sample great local bluegrass, soul, jazz and acoustic music while connecting with friends and neighbors.
Concerts will run from 5 to 7 p.m., and a cash bar will be provided by Appalachian Mountain Brewery featuring local craft beers, wine and water. Admission is free – just bring yourself, your friends and a lawnchair to enjoy the music with a view!
If you want to stay tuned to what bands are playing when, connect with Echota on Facebook at or email Leah Grove at email@example.com to be included on the event mailing list.
Each three hour tour takes you on a thrilling and educational journey through the trees. Begin your trip with an off-road ATV ride through the river and up the mountain! Once at the top, you will learn the simple techniques used to navigate the course before departing on the first “breath-taker” ride across the valley. Two expertly trained Rangers accompany every tour, providing you with both peace of mind and teaching you about the course along the way, the natural environment, and the history of the area. Ten zip lines, a cliff jump, a swinging bridge and countless views later – you have an experience you won’t soon forget. And if you think all that zipping will worked up a hunger, add lunch to your tour and enjoy a gourmet feast from the The Gamekeeper Restaurant!

It you’re looking to sell your Echota property, news is good these days. Foscoe Realty’s Resale Director Leigh Hamilton says resales are gradually rising. She saw 31 Echota resales last year and expects the numbers to keep growing.
“The advantage of marketing your home with us is that our location is right here on site,” she says. “We get the walk-in traffic.” That means vacationers who find Echota on a whim can drive in and see a condo or single-family home right then and there.
“We also have a solid marketing budget,” Leigh adds. “We’re the only group with billboards directing traffic here, and all of our investment is in marketing Echota, no one else.” Click here to learn more.
