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

                                                                  David B.

                                                                  Stayed here with some friends on a motorcycle trip. We've stayed at many places before and this place is top notch. One of the best if not the best overall place we've been to. Two really nice matching master bedrooms. Even the other bedrooms are all very large with nice sized beds and close bathrooms so you don't have to squabble with friends or relatives over who gets the "nice" bedroom. Huge basement with all kinds of games to play.

                                                                  Huge flat screen TV. We did not have children with us, but I did notice plenty of accommodations for families with little ones. Cribs, high chairs, baby gates, ect all provided. Huge deck with a great view and a gas grill. Large firepit. By far the nicest hot tub I've even seen at a rental property.

                                                                  Plenty of pots, pans, Tupperware, ect. Really cant say enough about the overall facility. Owner was very accommodating and follow up was great. Even got a visit from the cleaning lady to make sure we were good.

                                                                  The driveway is steep, but we rode up and down it a bunch going on rides and had no issues. I could see how a lesser experienced rider might be a little tentative, but if you want a cabin with nice mountain views you're going to have to go up some steep driveways to get there. Non issue in a car or truck. A great cabin, you will not be disappointed.

                                                                  Had a great time!

                                                                  Paul F.

                                                                  We take a trip to the mountains every year and this cabin was perfect for my family. We had a mix of family members from age 10 to 85 and everyone had a great time. The road to the cabin was good , one of us had a small car and made it no problem. The kitchen had everything we needed. The Game room was awesome, we actually got my 85 year old grandma to play pool. My son's had never seen snow and it snowed all day one day (in late March), they loved it. A trip we will never forget, worth every penny!

                                                                  Beautiful property

                                                                  melissa t.

                                                                  I would stay again. Only problem was I was never able to log on to the internet, kept asking for a password that was not provided.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Sherry S.

                                                                  Our group had a blast in this beautiful and very spacious cabin! We absolutely loved it!


                                                                  Shareka C.

                                                                  The property was beautiful and even better than described. It fit all of my groups needs and everyone can't wait to come back for another visit.

                                                                  We were lucky enough to have snow during our visit, which was beautiful. The ice, however, was a different story and made It extremely difficult to get to the cabin. My party had to leave our cars at the bottom of the mountain and walk the rest of the way. Some of us were lucky enough to catch a ride up with the family in a neighboring cabin. After the temps rose the next day and melted everything away we were able to bring our cars up.

                                                                  Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with my group. You've convinced me, an inside kind of girl, that being in the mountains is peaceful and well worth the trip! I had just as much fun if not more than any beach trip I've ever taken. Archar's Lair is my new favorite vacation spot.

                                                                  Great Cabin

                                                                  Theodore S.-

                                                                  Great cabin. Kitchen have everything you need. The masters were amazing as was every bedroom. TV in every bedroom kept everybody happy. The deck was huge plenty of seating and great views, very relaxing. The basement was great pool table, Foosball, air hockey and my favorite the Pacman arcade game with all the games I grow up playing. Nice new and clean hot tube. The whole cabin clean and well taken care of. Some people wrote the road was a problem, but it's no problem at all. I had no issues getting up in my Camry. We had plans to do more in the area, but enjoyed the cabin so much spent a lot of time just relaxing at the cabin instead. We will be coming back again. Thanks Ted

                                                                  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.
