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

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were spacious and well-appointed. The game room with *multiple* games to please everyone PLUS the hot tub gave plenty to occupy and entertain. The porch was perfect and the view outstanding. Even the porch furniture was super comfortable, not just pretty. And the two kid-size rocking chairs made our littles very happy. We found all we needed in the kitchen. There was plenty of parking space. The road was fine for us (seeing others have complained about it) - it is a mountain after all. Even our little manual Scion XD made it fine. And my 12 year old van with well over 200,000 miles on it. :-) Anyway, the house was super and I would absolutely recommend it and return myself too, if I get the opportunity. Also the owner, Ted, was great with communication. Thanks for a super vacation spot. :-D

Awesome facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Group of 12 guys riding motorcycles stayed at Ted's place. No issues going up and down the mountain to the cabin w the mc's. Plenty of room for all of us to have our own sleeping areas; bed, futon and couch. The game room and back porch kept us busy on our rain day. The manager was awaiting our arrival and was very accommodating, friendly and attentive to any needs we may have needed. We will definitely recommend and return for future trips. Tks, The Motor Duck Run Crew!!!

Wonderful Cabin / Bad Road

  • 4 of 5

I would have given a 5 star if the condition of the road had been described better. My bother road his Honda Goldwing 1800 and barely, really barely made it up the almost entirely unpaved scary mountain road. He would not ride it down, we just so happened to have a trailer to get it down. Cars made it just fine, except for the one pulling the trailer for the motorcycle it did slip a couple of times. I am not mad about the road, I am upset that description and picture say and show "newly paved road" , it has a couple of small sections that are paved.

Now the cabin (home), It was wonderful!!!!!! Huge deck with gates, fantastic space, fun basement with fun games. The home is well stocked and was clean. Beautiful!!! My only complaint would be sitting, especially the kitchen table, we knew this and brought a card table and a couple of chairs. But, for sleeping 16 to 18 people you would not be able to eat together or sit together in the living room. This really was not a problem for us.

We really did enjoy our time there, spent lots of time out in the mountains, played games and did puzzles. We sat on the deck lots!!

Ted, please know that we did enjoy your home. Just please let people know the road condition. Thank you!!!!

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.
