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
We had 15 people and it was so peaceful and homey! There wasn't anything missing in the cabin and it felt like home. We will definitely recommend it to all our friends!
We loved your cabin. We had a great time enjoying the view. Plenty of space for 12 of us. The only thing I would suggest is a bigger toaster. But everything else was amazing.
Great place to go with a large family. We had all adults and it is one of the few places we found that had large beds in all bedrooms. Very quiet and peaceful which is just what we wanted. Lots of room so it never felt crowded. We had no problems with the drive up the mountain to the cabin, even with one SUV having only a 4 cylinder. Plenty of chairs outside, even around the fire pit. There were extra blankets and pillows and plenty of dishes. Having paper products provided was a nice bonus. Place was clean when we arrived. We had one question, I called Ted, he answered the phone immediately and took care of it. I hate to say how nice the place was because I would love to come back and want to be able to find time when it is not rented.
It was a grand adventure with an amazing house. Everyone was well pleased and excited. It is on the list to come back!!!!
We had a great time visiting Archar's Lair for our long weekend getaway. Everything was just as advertised. We had 4 couples and a single adult and everyone had their own bedroom and bath. We didn't cook any but it looked as everything is waiting for you if you wanted to. It is a steep drive up the mountain but after the first trip we were accustomed to it and knew where we were going. No problems for us. We were on a 15 passenger van for our group of 9 but didn't have a problem. The house is great and once we found the cabin, location was not a problem. Actually it was nice. Cabin was clean and just as shown. Thanks Ted for sharing.
We had a wonderful time in this home. It fit all of us and it had a great sports room in the basement. Driveway is a bit steep but not too bad. I would recommend this home to anyone. The week went buy so fast, it really felt like home everyone said.
Thank you 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.
