A peaceful home amid a dramatic plateau

At Echota’s highest point, you’ll find Chalakee’s sweeping views of Grandfather Mountain and the Watauga River Valley. Each residence is designed to capture this expansive feeling, with 9-foot ceilings and 17-foot ceilings from the top floor as well as spacious decks with outdoor kitchens. Custom finishes add a touch of elegance to charming timber frame construction, and the nearby bocce ball courts, pools and clubhouses bring entertainment to your backyard.

Mountain Views

Chalakee offers spectacular ridgetop or long-range mountain views from every home.


Our large covered decks offer you spectacular Grandfather Mountain views with ample lounge and eating space, plus built-in outdoor gas grills with a granite surround and hood, a rare offering you’ll only find at Echota.

Outdoor Pool

The pool rests at the foot of a peaceful waterfall framed by natural boulders, making the experience perfectly relaxing. A hot tub, a bar area, comfortable seating and a fireplace make it ideal for group gatherings.

Indoor Pool

With our all-season indoor pool, every day is a good day for a swim. Surrounding glass walls provide views of the mountains all year and a unique solarium roof slides open, bringing the sunshine right to you in the warmer months.


The original Echota Clubhouse and the Echota on the Ridge Clubhouse both offer a large common area with a flat-screen TV, pool table, stone fireplace plus a swimming pool and fitness center.

Chalakee had everything we hoped to find in a second home. We were impressed with how beautifully maintained the area was, the quality of construction and the views.
