We first came to Franklin four years ago and fell in love with the area. When this cabin came for sale we jumped at the chance to buy it. We live and work in central Florida but drive up to the Archar Lair as much as possible and hope to move here as soon as possible.

We had a wonderful time for our family get together. Our group of 16 included 8 adults and 8 kids ranging in age from 5 - 75. Loved having king sized beds for all our adults! Game room was well used by all our kids and the large kitchen table had many games of cards and other games played on it. Hot tub was used after long days of hiking to see the many beautiful waterfalls in the area. Thanks for a great weekend!
The cabin was gorgeous! The owner was quick to respond to questions and provided great directions. Our group of 13 enjoyed every minute of our week long trip. Yoga and coffee on the huge deck every morning, enjoying the mountain view. The kitchen was well stocked and perfect for big group meals and board games at the large kitchen table. The whole squad enjoyed the excellent game room, push button fireplace, king size beds, hot tub, and more.
We hiked a few trails that were a nice drive from the cabin - Jones Knob, Whitewater Falls, and Schoolhouse Falls. We also spent a few days exploring Asheville and enjoyed burgers at Jack of the Wood, beer at the Thirsty Monk, and more beer and snacks at Lexington Avenue Brewery.
Overall and fantastic trip! Highly recommend it!
A great lodge for a group stay with beautiful amenities and enough distractions to keep everyone entertained
This was the best maintained and decorated rental I have ever stayed in. Eventing is new and up to date. The bedding was first rate and the dishes were lovely. A real treat
Our families met @ the cabin for a week of adventure and relaxation! All 15 of us had a great time! Kitchen well equipped for cooking for a large group. Fire pit for S'mores & hot dog roast. The game room was awesome for kids big @ little. Coffee on the porch every morning overlooking the mountains, magnificent. Sleeping in comfortable king size beds a plus! Near town for shopping, gem mining, water rafting and hiking. Our crew went water rafting down the Nantahala River & zip lining ! Such fun! Thank you for a beautiful getaway from it all week! P.S. the hot tub was a plus too!
This is a great cabin in Franklin. The house was perfect for our families. Two master suites upstairs, four bedrooms/two baths on second floor and a bedroom and bathroom in the downstairs. The house is beautiful and has all the amenities you need. Great view from the very large porch which has gates that you can lock which is great for smaller kids. We had several families and would definitely rent this house again. The only negative is the steep dirt/gravel road which worked well for rear wheel drive cars but front wheel drive cars struggled when the roads where wet. Other than that it is fantastic. We had a blast rafting in Bryson City, Zip Lining in Highlands and hiking all over.
Located on 5 acres. Plenty of room for the kids to explore. Close to few remaining ruby mines that offer native gemstones. Rafting on Nantahala river is only 30 minutes away. Great motorcycle rides everywhere, about one hour from tail of the Dragon. Away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to all the shopping and dining, just 10 miles from downtown Franklin.
