"The views were amazing! We thought we would have pool access, but ended up not having access to the indoor pool, residents only. We unnecessarily brought extra toilet tissue, paper towels, and hair dryers because the information told us these things were not available or in limited quantity."

It's super quiet neighborhood although the property is full of townhomes, there's barely any activity of cars, people or noise. The kitchen and bathrooms have everything you need. More than enough blankets and pillows and the beds were really comfy. We would definitely come back to this property."

"We loved our time spent at Bear Crossing at Echota Resorts. The townhouse was beautiful, clean, kitchen well supplied, and the views were incredible! Best of all our beds were ready to climb into for a great nights sleep. So important after a long trip when you are ready to unpack and relax. Then the following morning drinking a hot cup of coffee while sitting on the comfy deck furniture and seeing the breathtaking views of Grandfather Mountain and the fall colors. The entire rental process was organized and Blue Ridge made everything simple and stress-free. The only negative was we didn't want our vacation to end! Can't wait to return!"
