The wooded hill above you also has walking paths that take you to the top of the northern edge of Beech Mountain. (No Smoking, No Pets, No Parties, NO Children under 9)

  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

I have loved this area ever since I attended the Outward Bound School at Table Rock. Ginny and I have always enjoyed hiking this area and find our time here very relaxing. My Uncle Clifford purchased this property when he was sent to the old Banner Elk hospital after dental school. His wife, Peggy, an avid naturalist, was the inspiration that established this farm as a conservation easement. With all the development in the area, we wanted the farmland to remind people of what this area used to be. We hope you appreciate our vision, and capture the feeling.

Marjy Ersbak, Property Mgr. purchased this cottage in 2009

When Dan Plyler built this home, we thought he had achieved the perfect cottage. It complemented the conservation easement surrounding this cottage, and we wanted to have an income to preserve the feeling of the area and protect it from becoming densely developed. The house focuses the attention on the incredible views of Grandfather and Sugar Mountain. It is also easy to access by road and still provides a sense of privacy and solitude.

We had a wonderful time at the cabin.. It is Beautiful and just as described.. It is great for a Anniversary getaway or for a long family vacation.. The cabin has plenty of room, games, Books etc.. I would recommend this cabin to everyone!!
We came for our Anniversary, we come to Banner Elk every year and I will most def. make this my new Anniversary spot..
I had a death in the family while we were here, and I think the comforts of home as well as the solitude comforted me in that terrible time..
Thank you again for a wonderful stay..

This place is definitely a "let's book again" stay. The cottage was clean and there were obvious, recent upgrades in the baths and kitchen. The cottage and hot tub were spotless and the surrounding patio with grill, and fire pit were beautifully landscaped. I loved drinking my morning coffee sitting in front of the living room window, looking at the mountains. The cottage is about ten (10) minutes away from restaurants, service stations, and not far from local grocery store chains. But, you're far away from traffic and city lights to enjoy peace and quiet. Grandfather Mountain hiking is a must for a first timer, but don't forget about Linville Falls. It's about a thirty minute drive and offers some beautiful scenery along the way.

2nd visit

My husband and I spent a week at Tranquility Cottage in July. This was our second visit in 4 months. We spent the last 5 days of March at the cottage and enjoyed it so much we came back again. The online photos do not do the cottage justice. We have been coming to Banner Elk for the last 11 years but just recently discovered this rental. I almost hate to let anyone else know about it. I don't want it to get too booked up.
Marjy is so helpful and wonderful to work with. We are hoping to close on some property in Banner Elk in the very near future. When we do and start building our own place we will continue to stay here or at the Potato House. You can not go wrong!

This place was absolutely stunning. The pictures did it no justice! The view was amazing and the hot tub was extremely relaxing. My husband and I went for our 10 year anniversary and were extremely happy with the Tranquility Cottage!
