“beautiful mountain vacation”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2016

We took a 3rd generation trip to Tweetsie Railroad in late Sept. We stayed in a gated rental in Boone, NC. It was a beautiful setting, indoor pool & hot tub was nice after a day out with the family. The kids enjoyed the deer roaming in the parking lot in the morning. It was nice to stay in a place that felt like a home & not a hotel. We saved money by using the kitchen for breakfast each day. The house had games, books and movies we could use. A couple of night lights in the hall & bathroom made it feel like home. Reservations, check-in and check out were so easy.

“Awesome place”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

I have been to Boone many times but had never stayed here. This area is georgeous and the accommodations were fantastic. I hope to come back soon. If this unit is available, it is my first choice.

Owner's reply: We were delighted to have you as our guest and do look forward to having you back soon.

“Great Place!”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2015

The only way our stay could have been better was if we could have stayed longer. We only had 2 nights at the condo. It was perfect; only 10 minutes away from Sugar Mountain which was great for our late nights at the slopes. Never even got to see the pool and hot tub area. Would definitely book here again!

Owner's reply: Yes, we are located within minutes of the ski resorts as well as all the interesting places in the area, and yet when in the condo, you are removed from all the hustle and bustle of the town. You can relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains and enjoy Nature at its finest. We look forward to having you as our guests again. Thanks for taking the time to send in the review.

“Our Christmas Stay”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2014

The room was very elegant! When we first walked in, we knew we hit the jackpot. We explored the place thoroughly, and we were left safisfled. I highly recommend the place to anyone and family who is looking for a cheap but nice condo to stay.

“Perfect Place”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2014

We stayed at Evergreens 521 for a long weekend, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The condo had everything we needed and much more!!! The location was great being close to all the places we planned to visit (Grandfather Mtn., Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis and of course, downtown Boone. We especially like the fact of having everything all on one floor. Reservations, check-in and check-out were a breeze. The price was awesome and was so much warmer and homier than a hotel. We will definitely return and hope to stay in the same place with additional family.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. We make every attempt to have our condo make guests feel like they are at home with all the conveniences possible as well as fantastic views and a place to relax and enjoy the time away. We look forward to having you visit in the future.

“Great place!”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2014

The condo was as described. Very nice. Clean and comfortable. Easy access being on the ground floor, but still a lovely view of the mountain. The clubhouse is a bit far to walk, but only took 2 minutes to drive there, and we did it in our swim suits. The pool is shallow, but well suited to kids. Great access to Grandfather Mtn. Linville, Boone, Banner Elk etc... I'd come back.

“What is Described and More”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2014

Quote from our teenagers as we left to go home . . . "This is the best place we have ever stayed at because it is the first place that FELT like Home." First I want to say Thank you to the owners for offering such a great deal for a great place! Was a little bit skeptical for two reasons, because the price was better than a hotel room for our family of 6. Also, the picture showed a small eat in table. Because it had a bar with stools we went with it. Guess what! The have leaves for the table to extend. However my kids wanted to eat at the bar most of the time anyway. Everything about this place was perfect for our family! We were privileged to have rented this condo during the Big NC snow storm. All the roads were kept in great shape so we had no problem traveling to and from. It was the perfect location for skiing and tubing. Also, I want to say thank you to all the previous renters who gave great ratings. Your descriptions were so accurate! The kitchen is better equipped than our own home. That was perfect because we ate all of our dinners in. Also, even though the rental agreement said that the paper products were for a weekend stay, we had plenty of paper towels, soap, etc. to last for 4 days with 2 adults and for young people. Plenty of towels! My kids laughed because all of the great little reminders that the owners left to know where things were. It reminded them of me and what I do when our rental property turns over to new renters. Would encourage you to give those people who are a little technology challenged a description of how to watch a DVD on the flat screen TV. The man from the rental group came up and helped us out without us even asking!! He had overheard my question to the ladies in the office as to what I needed to do different and he came on up to the condo. My husband enjoyed the work out room, the hot tub, and the pool. Very convenient. Also, so much entertainment puzzles, cards, books, etc. Also, thanks to all of the renters who have kept it in great shape!! Can't believe that you are now offering it for even $10 less. This is such a great rate!!!! I got a little frantic on the day we arrived because I did not realize that the business hours on Sunday end at 2 on though check in is from 3 to 5. When I called at 2:15 and left a call for help - I got a call right back much to my relief!! Note the business hours on the day you arrive. Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, families with young children

“Beautiful and relaxing mountain home”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

What a wonderful find! My wife and I were looking for a quick getaway, and we were so fortunate that this condo was available for us. The owners responded to my request quickly and were very easy to work with. The Echota complex is stunning and the condo instantly felt like home, with all of the amenities, including wireless internet access. Everything was spotless and comfortable, just as in the photos. Spending time on the deck enjoying the mountains was completely relaxing. At the same time, we had easy access to Boone attractions, dining, and Grandfather mountain. I highly recommend this condo for your next visit to the area!

“Return visit”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2012

We came back after last year's stay. It's in a great location for us- between ski slopes and Boone. The condo is a nice place with a great view- two thumbs up. We'll be back!

“Best vacation!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2011

This was a wonderful vacation. Even our teenage kids said this was one of our best vacations ever. It was such a beautiful place, and there was plenty of room for all 5 of us. The location was close to a lot of activities. So affordable compared to a hotel room!! We are planning to go back next year.

Your place was better than the pictures described it. Very pretty inside and outside. Christmas Day we got a ton of snow and the views were beautiful. My son and I even saw a wild turkey fly by! It was centrally located exactly how we wanted. the jacuzzi in the clubhouse was a lifesaver. We want to come back! NO CONS here, ONLY POSITIVES Bob Jones Tampa 10/29/2010
