Scholé On The Tuck

Scholé comes from the Greek word meaning "leisure." Today, Scholé also reflects the philosophy of mindfulness and the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Scholé on The Tuck offers an excellent location for all of that: fly fishing, hiking, arts, reading, writing, napping, or simply meandering through the trees and the very unique serpentine/olivine rocks. ( Scholé's property is not only located on the Delayed Harvest Waters of the Tuckasegee River, but it is also a North Carolina Heritage Site because of it's "special rocks" and several rare plants.)

By design, Scholé On The Tuck, completed in 2018, is a "dogtrot" house. It is an iconic 19th and 20th century American architectural style found in Appalachian states like North Carolina. Traditionally, a central breezeway connected two log cabins and permitted an escape from the humid summer weather. We have chosen to enclose the breezeway, cover it with a tin roof for rainy days, and use it as a living room.

If you are interested, we have two "dog trot" bedrooms available for short term rentals. Contact: Carol Schilling at # 1-828-549-8099
