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.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I was not only impressed with the house, but the condition of every room was immaculate. What put things over the top for me were the on-site baby supplies. We were able to leave our highchair, pack and play, and gates at home. This made packing with a big group much easier.

The gravel driveway is a bit challenging due to its incline. However, once up you kind of get the hang of it. Just give it a little speed on the last 20 feet and you'll be fine.

I hope to stay again sometime and highly recommend this property!

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great large cabin with plenty of room for our large extended family. The kitchen area combined with the living room was our focal point to sit, laugh, tell stories and eat, while the downstairs game room was always being used for a pool tournament or Risk marathon. The beds were comfortable, everything from pots and pans to toilet paper were provided, and there was plenty of parking. The limited WiFi was an issue for several of our younger members used to living with their phones in their hands, but for the rest of us it was a welcome respite for a few days away. All in all it was well worth what we paid and I would recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone who needs the extra room this large space allows. Thanks Ted!

Excellent Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in excellent condition, built and cared for immaculately and with love. The living area was wonderful, with a dine in kitchen and fireplace, which our family of 13 enjoyed very much. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we were impressed with how comfortably we fit, in fact we had 'extra space.' Being from Miami, FL, where we don't have basements, we found the basement to be much colder than the rest of the home, but the heater was an easy fix. The fire pit and back porch with rocking chairs and a BBQ were amazing, we created wonderful memories there. The homes craftsmanship is truly incredible and dealing with the owner was an absolute pleasure. He made himself available via email and phone, which was great. If you have a large family or are traveling with extended family, as I did, this is the cabin for you. I promise you - YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL LOVE IT!

Lovely cabin for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with everything you need! The cabin really is gorgeous. We will stay again if we come back to Franklin. Beautiful view off deck with working hot tub. Kitchen well stocked, truly beds for 16. Downstairs basement was very chilly for sleeping, so bring extra blankets if need to sleep down there.

Must do the Highland Roads waterfalls while in the area. Be aware that the drive up to cabin is steep- My dad's hybrid civic couldn't quite make it up the hill, so we just parked it in a spot on the way up. Of course, SUV made it up, but so did a prius and an older camry. Great time!

Family Retreat

Very clean and well maintained. Play room in basement was wonderful for grandkids. Great view of mountains. Close to ruby mines, fishing streams, Franklin and other attractions. Deck is great, even for a toddler. Super vacation rental!

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 30 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.
