Echota Celebrates Season Opening with Homeowners, Guests

Echota, a new home development in the High Country of North Carolina, celebrated Memorial Day Weekend with residents and friends. The event opened the season for homeowners, and welcomed vacationers visiting Echota to take in its mountain views and stay in the community's Adirondack-style homes, townhomes and condominiums.

Boone, N.C. (PRWEB) June 7, 2005 -- Echota (www.APeacefulHaven.com), a new home mountain resort community in Foscoe, NC, celebrated Memorial Day Weekend with a “Welcome Back” festival for homeowners and visitors of the High Country community.

Over 250 homeowners, families and friends joined in the festivities on Saturday, May 28. The event featured bluegrass band Boss Hawg and catering by Woodland BBQ.

Magician Tommy Rash entertained children with magic tricks and balloon animals. While a number of guests took to the pool to cool off, others enjoyed a great day of fishing from the community’s stocked trout pond.

“It was so fun meeting new people and visiting with old friends,” said homeowner Mary Booe. “Our new home at Echota is beyond our expectations and we are enjoying it more and more."

“We wanted to provide an opportunity for homeowners to return for their summer stay, celebrate with neighbors or just getaway for the long weekend,” said Mark Harrill, Developer of Echota. “Part of establishing a great neighborhood is building relationships with one another, and the considerable turnout shows that Echota is becoming just what we had envisioned.”

Echota’s growth will continue with the addition of Echota on the Ridge, a new phase of Adirondack style homes with a compelling setting along the incline of Echota’s surrounding mountains. A new residents club and pool are also being developed for Echota on the Ridge.

Echota is located within minutes of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk, and within two hours of Charlotte, Hickory and Winston Salem. The recent completion of the new Interstate 40 makes Echota accessible from Raleigh in approximately three hours.
