About John Schisler
I'm John Schisler, the owner of Potato House. This property belonged to my Aunt and Uncle who were avid environmentalists. I fell in love with its beauty in college, and helped them establish an easement on the property so the peaceful feeling and incredible view would never be spoiled. I share this 'potato house' with you so I can maintain this special place and protect it from development! I also like the local winery and restaurants!
John Schisler purchased this Cottage in 2005

Fall Birthday Visit
Our 3rd stay at the Potato House, the house is well appointed and the 40 plus acre property has been fun to explore. Perfect time of the year to take advantage of the hot tub and to roast marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace.
You can add another 30 acres on to that figure! We look forward to your next stay.
Great location, great house
We just love Banner Elk and the Potato House. The deck is a perfect place to enjoy the view of Grandfather Mountain. Perfect house for two people.
We love it here!
We have stayed here many times. Look forward to visiting every summer.
Great house for two couples!
The Potato house was perfect for two couples with two equal king bedrooms. The location is excellent at 4200 ft elevation yet a very short drive to the quaint village of Banner Elk NC that has a wide variety of restaurants and shops. The view of Grandfather mountain is excellent and the house is very private. Even though it has a road in front there wasn’t much traffic. The kitchen, although small, is very well stocked. We enjoyed cooking out on the gas grill and having dinner on the deck. The house and grounds are very clean and well maintained.
Thank you Sharon. We are pleased you will be returning next Summer.
(BTW both beds are California king size!)
Beautiful location, house and property clean and in good order.
Perfect place to relax and enjoy the mountains
This house was wonderful! We would come back without hesitation. We were extremely happy with everything from cleanliness (VERY clean) to the view. It’s the perfect size for a couple (or two), the furnishings and interior design are well chosen and pleasant, and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen was stocked well and with high quality items and tools. The hot tub was very clean and perfect after a long day of hiking. In general, from the choice of cleaners to the furnishings, they do not cut corners on this rental!
The house’s location is also great! It is just a couple minutes from downtown Banner Elk and in a position that offers a wonderful view. From Banner Elk, we had quick access to good food and excellent hiking.
We highly recommend this place!
