Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 2 Baths.

This beautifully furnished condo with a deck, decked with flowers overflowing the railings makes you feel like you've entered a sanctuary of peace and charm. Located between Boone and Banner Elk, in the gorgeous Blue Ridge mountains of western NC, this refuge offers everything for the heart,soul and the body. The tranquility and beauty are only part of the mountains. If you are a golfer, nothing compares to the golf courses within a few mles of each other. If you are a trout fisherman, be prepared to hook the best trout in the Eastern seaboard. Whether you are an adventurer or an athlete, this part of the country offers everything from wonderful hiking trails, white water rafting, bat caves, waterfalls, parks, zip-lining, repelling, boating, tubing down the Watauga and sailing to satisfy all your outdoor needs. There are day camps for the kiddies, with Tweetsie Railraod only a few miles away and Echota has two swimming pools, one indoor and the other nestled in the mountain range high above the clouds on top of the ridge. There is every kind of activity to satisfy all of your needs. Nearby, there is wonderful shopping, outlet malls, great restaurants and the nightlife is exciting filled with everything from local country bands every night in a different park or theatre. There is live theatre, movies, hoe downs, and the best BBQ in the eastern United States, not to mention the most delicious ham and biscuits anywhere. Whatever your needs, desires and interests, you will find it within a 10-15 mile radius surrounding our condo. Any sport from golf, tennis, trout fishing, white water rafting, zip-lining, are plentiful in this lush mountain region where the trees hug you. It's the best kept secret in our country!

The condo is exquisitely furnished in a eclectic contemporary, country style. The living room seats comfortably 8-10 persons. The kitchen has a breakfast bar that seats five. Artwork garnishes each room to titillate your senses. The moment you enter the foyer you know your are home! It is inviting, charming, very tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable.

Each bedroom is tastefully decorated in country style. The master bedroom has a king size bed covered with either a feathered down throw or country quilt depending on the time of year you choose to visit. It looks like something out of the Victorian era. Doors open up to a deck that overlooks countless North Carolina assorted trees that seem to extend forever including a fifty mile view. During the summer, the deck is covered with colorful blossoms that make you want to spend as much time as your schedule permits. The sounds of the birds chirping, coupled with observing the flurry of hummingbirds that surround the feeder give you a sense that you are in heaven. it's true that nothing can be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed with a colorful coverlet donning the bed. It's white shutters that garnish the windows adds southern charm to an already spectacular room. Each bedroom is adjoined with a master bathroom. Each has a tub to soak your weary legs from the golf, tennis or hiking you did all day. The condo is fully equipped with everything anyone would need to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped including a juicer, if you so desire. The only thing missing is you and the food you want to purchase.

Wooden floors are throughout the condo. There are televisions in both bedrooms as well as the living room. All you have to do is "show up!" Oh! Did I mention a fire place? Yes, we have one!

Warning: It's hard to say goodbye to the condo in the sky! You'll want to come back again!

About Owner / Manager

The condo is owned by my daughter, Monica and me, Joan. We live in South Florida when we are not visiting our condo in the mountains. Monica is a hair designer and I am a psychotherapist, author and speaker. I am divorced, have five children and 6 grandchildren. Monica is single and has a boyfriend.

We both share the best of times in the the Blue Ridge, sometimes alone, sometimes together and often with our own friends. Our love of North Carolina has kept us back since we first discovered the high country in 1989. It holds a special place in our hearts that will be a part of each of us forever. We are so grateful to have come upon a part of our nation that stands alone in its unique beauty and charm. The trees in our community and surrounding area, actually hug you.

Owner / Manager purchased this condo in 2003

Why Owner / Manager chose Boone

I could write chapters about this property but nothing could do justice unless you witness it yourself. It is our refuge, our sacred space and a place that represents each of us. The surrounding areas of Echota and all of highway 105 and 194 are magical. Everything looks like a storybook. It's a place we never want to leave. It might be the place that one day we might consider retiring or at least living 6 months out of the year. I wrote two books in my condo, both containing a chapter about Boone and Banner Elk. If you have a chance to relax and read, you will find all the magic in those chapters. The name of the books are THE MYTH OF THE MAIDEN: On Being a Woman and WHY DID SHE JUMP? My Daughter's Battle with Bipolar Disorder. It elaborates everything I wrote in on this site.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits are endless. You can choose any activity you can imagine, from white water rafting, to repelling, to zip lining, gem mining, hiking, trout fishing, tubing, picking berries, concerts, theater, quilting, ceramics, sculpturing, painting, picnics, swimming, bird watching, working out, and the list goes on. There are two universities withing 10 miles of each other, ASU and Lees McCrae. One of my favorite things to do is write. The beauty and solitude brings my muse around and my writing seems to flow better in the mountains.

The weather is one of the best assets the high country has. It's cool most of the summer and can even get down to the 40's. Sitting around the fireplace, listening to classical music and relaxing is one of my favorite things to do.

Create your own vacation. There's something for everyone. Once the mountains bites you, you will always want to come back again!

Does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a lovely three-day getaway at Gorgeous Condo. It was just darling and very homey and comfortable. We could not make ourselves leave the deck/porch. The picture of the deck is what drew me to this condo, and it was a little slice of heaven. We enjoyed the entire condo and the area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

What a lovely weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely home with a beautiful view. The condo is beautifully furnished with everything you need for a weekend or an extended stay. It's convenient to everything and easy to get to. We had coffee on the deck and were serenaded by the wind chimes. Loved our time there and can't wait to return.

A very special spot.

Wonderful location. The condo is beautiful along with the view. Not a long long view but a beautiful view none the less. Very private porch that actually does have flowering plants galore.
