Built upon the original 'Potato House', this luxurious cottage has beautiful wood beams and bark construction. Boulders surround this unique place, with a private hot tub hidden away from the road, but not from the view! Situated just outside Banner Elk and a neighboring vineyard, this oasis sits amidst a 43 acre farm that has been preserved through a conservation easement. From the front porch, there is a tremendous pastoral view with Grandfather Mountain in the distance. This view is so striking it has been used in commercial calendars. The cottage overlooks a tranquil farm scene with a beautiful barn and pond across the road. Private trails climb behind the cottage to the back side of Beech Mountain, while a unique walk through the Rhododendron thicket below the pasture lies in front of you. (No Smoking, No Pets, No Parties and NO children)

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

The Potatoe House is amazing, perfect setting, nice furnishings, comfortable, and clean.
My family had the most comfortable stay at the Potatoe House. What an amazing place. We hope to stay here again in the summertime to explore the surrounding areas.
Thanks Chris. We hope to see you soon.
Always the Best! (Five stars is not enough)
We go twice a year for a week and it is always the most relaxing weeks of the year. Even with the reain we had last week we were able to sit on the deck under the overhang and read, talk, and drink wine. This year the wildlife included a beautiful gray fox and several turkeys. Leave all of your electronics at home when you come.
Feels like this place has it all. Clean, comfortable, well-stocked. Beautiful piece of property to explore. Great location. We hope to come again!
A wonderful stay in a wonderful place.
The Potato House was everything we thought it would be. Gorgeous location, splendid views and excellent accommodations. Outstanding condition with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Removed from the hub-bub of everyday life and the perfect place to just relax. We will surely keep this at the top of our list for a return visit.
This home was the perfect getaway for my husband and I!
It is a beautiful home with amazing views! We will definitely be back! The heated bathroom floors, hot tub, trails right outside your door, deck with comfy chairs, swing by the creek....it’s a mountain paradise!
