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.

Well furnished, clean, and well maintained. Management / Owner were easy to work with. We could not have asked for better for our event. 5 stars!
very nice cabin with all the things one would want to see in a vacation home
Our group enjoyed the cabin. All the things we normally think of in a vacation home are there. We enjoyed the privacy, the view, the game room, the fire pit, and the hot tub. The floor plan is great and the cabin is equipped to handle all ages.
GREAT CABIN! TOP NOTCH.
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.
Thanks for your great review. Glad you had a great time. Ted
The property delivered on everything it promised!
If you are looking for a secluded getaway in the gorgeous Smoky Mountains with an upscale feel, but down home atmosphere, then this is your place. From the minute we drove up the mountain road, we knew we were going to be in love. With three floors there is enough room to sit around the table and be together as a family or all go your separate ways and pretend you have the house to yourself. The fireplace, the enormous deck, the spacious kitchen, the furnished basement with pool table, arcade games and so much more made this the perfect place to celebrate our dad’s 80th birthday. Not to mention seven bedrooms and 5 bathrooms! The view out into the mountains are awesome for a morning cup of coffee. Or maybe you would prefer an even fire in the pit to make s’mores. We did it all. To top it all off, if you start feeling too rural, you can be in the middle of town in 15 minutes. This was our first time to Franklin and Archer’s Lair. I can guarantee you it won’t be our last. (P.S. use your time to unwind and unplug. Although there is internet service is very slow, which I suspect is due to being in the mountains. Take it from me, unplugging wasn’t a negative!).
Had a great time!
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!
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.
Sorry to hear that I wish you would have called me I would have had you reboot the internet. 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.
