About the property

1 bedroom with loft, 1.5 bath, sleeps 2-4

This cottage is located just outside Banner Elk midway between the ski slopes of Sugar and Beech Mtn. It is located on a 43 acre farm that is part of a conservation easement. This easement limits development and not only preserves the incredible views of Grandfather and Sugar Mountain, it also preserves the pastoral charm and tranquility of its surroundings. Every room has a view of the mountains, as well as the barns and pond in the foreground. There are 20 acres of farmland below you, including 5 acres of rhododendrun thicketed walking trails to explore. 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)

About John Schisler

I'm John Schisler, the owner of Tranquility Cottage. I have loved this area ever since I attended the Outward Bound School at Table Rock. My wife 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.

John Schisler purchased this cottage in 2009

Why John Schisler chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

Perfect for a family of four. Location is great...5 mins from downtown banner elk and 15 mins from both ski resorts. Great views from the living room. Would definitely use again.

Pictures do not do this property justice!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Florida in search of a winter experience and we received just that!

This cottage was perfect! The location and views were fabulous! We did not experience any problems and this was our first VRBO rental. The simple and functional decorating was exactly what was needed for travelers. We booked at the last minute and what a jewel we found.

The owner responded extremely promptly after we booked on the phone with VRBO.

We would recommend this property and look forward to revisiting during the spring/summer.

Thanks for offering such a beautiful property.

Never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I come here at least once a year, sometimes twice for the last 4-5 years I guess. The cabin is always immaculate. We used to stay on top of Beech Mountain, and we still go up the hill, visit Fred's General Store, but this is the best of both worlds. Never any surprises, if you need anything at all, John or Marjy answers emails and phone immediately. Going to bed and getting up everyday with a view of Grandfather Mountain just a few miles away seals the deal for me!
