Welcome to the Heart of the High Country
The views so prevalent in Echota and the North Carolina High Country are legendary. But there’s something more. Something unspoken about this place. The crisp mountain air. The tranquility. The kinship shared with others. A mountain home in the High Country is a soul-nourishing place defined by the Blue Ridge Mountains, boundless opportunities for outdoor recreation, charming communities and activities and attractions almost too numerous to mention. Your mountain home at Echota is in the middle of it all.
Boone, NC, Banner Elk, NC and Blowing Rock, NC are right outside your door and Grandfather Mountain is right outside your window. In fact, at Echota you’re just moments from the highest mountain peaks east of the Mississippi, a year-round wonderland that includes more than 100 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway, terrific skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain, Ski Beech and Sugar Mountain Resort. Tubing and sledding opportunities abound for the entire family including Hawksnest, the East’s largest snow tubing center. Of course, winter is only one season to celebrate in the High Country. There’s something for everyone the whole year round.
