About Ted Schropp

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.

Ted Schropp purchased this cabin in 2012

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 45 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.

Beautifull Location

  • 5 of 5

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a group of sixteen stay for the weekend and early part of the week to enjoy the mountains. But, we were there primarily for the total solar eclipse. The large back deck was the perfect location for all of us to see the eclipse and avoid all of the traffic in the area. The house is well equipped for any activities had we become bored or if the weather had kept us inside. And, Ted is very responsive to any question. He's a great owner to rent from.

Archar's Lair - The time of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family of sixteen to come together to celebrate. We had lots of space and plenty of room for various activities. The location is such that it was easy to take advantage of the many offerings of this area.

The cabin is beautiful, large but still cozy and provided everything we needed as a home away from home.

Amazing cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful cabin with everything you need. The only thing I can suggest is to have a picnic table out side. We had friends over and not everyone could sit at the table. We managed and still had a blast.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay here. Plenty of room for everyone to hang out and not feel that we were in each others way. Everything was clean and comfortable. The directions to the cabin were accurate. I would recommend this cabin highly. We took excursions to zip line, horseback ride, hike in the Smokies National Park and let the kids mine for jewels. The hot tub was excellent. The road to the cabin was fine. Everyone in our party was able to get to cabin with no problem and we had every type of car from SUV to compacts.

Spacious, comfortable, as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a family reunion. There is more than enough space for spending time together, and the 7 bedrooms/5 bathrooms provide enough space for spending time apart. The cabin is as advertised, with a great view. You may want to bring extra pillows/blankets, though, as there is limited extra bedding.
