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
Archar's Lair was just stunning! My family lived on the back deck sitting in the rocking chairs looking out to the amazing mountain view! There was plenty of room. The cabin is kept in outstanding condition. The kitchen was stocked well. We made s'mores in the fire pit! The home is also located centrally to get to the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock and Dry Falls -- and many other attractions! Franklin has little quaint shops to look in! Ted, the owner, was great to work with. Archar's Lair was a great place for our family reunion! I would highly recommend this vacation rental!
We just spent a weekend to see our son's graduation from WCU. Cabin is gorgeous! No one wanted to leave. Plenty of room inside and out. Beautiful place. Thanks
Just got back from a 6 day vacation as a family reunion. Kitchen had everything you would want and beyond. A couple SMALL things. Pillows need to be replaced getting to soft and old. With this big of a house and bathrooms need a couple more hair dryers especially with 4-5 women in the house. View outstanding. Basement does get cold so be prepared for that. More hangers needed. Watch the driveway hard getting up till you get use to it. Quiet and loved the fire ring and game room. All in all will do it again. Please we were pleased just wanted to draw a few things to you attention. LOVED IT Will go back. When manager contacted he took care of issues right away that's a plus.
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!
Everything we expected and more. Great place for a short get away. 10/10 would recommend.
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!
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.
