About Gene and Diane

We, Gene and Diane, love to receive guest to our quaint little cottages. We live on the property and are available to assist you in any way we can to make your stay with us a pleasant one.

Gene and Diane purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Gene and Diane chose Cashiers Area

Orchard Hill Cottages are located in the Mountains in the midst of rolling pastures. Plenty of flowers, cows, rabbits and birds of all kinds to enjoy. We are close to the river where tubing and canoeing are available and also close to good hiking trails for those who prefer the woods. A few miles up Hwy 28 offers white water rafting. Gem mines are all around within a few miles.

What makes this cottage unique

This is truly country living where front porches, rocking chairs, swings, a comfortable hammock and a good little fire-pit can be used daily. We have a picnic area all set up for grilling and just relaxing down by the little creek. Do come and enjoy the beauty with us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your charming cabin. All the beautiful flowers growing around the cabin and the multitude of song birds were such a delight. Also, the pie you gave us was delicious. Thank you for everything.

Nice little cabin. Very clean. All your basic necessities.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is really cute. Decorated nicely. A few other cabins on the grounds. It was nice looking out at cattle and feeling the crisp mountain air. Cabin could use a grill closer.

Clean, convenient & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Needed a quiet place away by myself to study for a big exam. Perfect fit. Close to Franklin, but out far enough to be quiet. The cabin was very clean and the owner was very accomodating. I would suggest a few more cooking sundries (a frying size pan, full size plates, and a few more drinking glasses). Be sure to take anything you need in the way of food and cooking as there is none of that there. Overall would definitely come back the next time I need a quiet getaway!

Relaxing and will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing weekend. The owners are super sweet and Mrs Dianne has done a wonderful job of decorating. The cabin was clean and accommodating. We took the pups and they loved the big yard to play in. If you drive a big vehicle you won't make it over the bridge, narrow. Nice drive to Bryson City, Cherokee and not far from the Georgia line.

Franklin is a nice laid back town, but growing. Nice shops down town, occasional concerts in the town square and plenty of restaurants to choose from (chain and local). Cant do wrong with this choice for a place to rest and relax and take a good strol through town.

Owner's Response: The base track (width for wheels)of the bridge is 8 ft. Long wheel base trucks may have some difficulty turning around in parking areas. The bridge accommodates propane gas trucks with extended mirrors with no problem.

Ahhhhh!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific little gem in the Mountains of NC. The Little Rustic Cabin was perfect for me. It was clean, well equipped and very comfy. The view from the back porch is fantastic. The host was super nice and very considerate. I would highly recommend this place.

Million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this little cabin in the foothills, beautiful to sit out on the porch and watch the cows and the birds! Our dog, dallas, loved to run around the yard and saw her first cow up close. She tried to scare them off but they wouldn't budge. The cabin is completely well stocked and decorated perfectly. Would love to know where to buy the blankets on the rocking chairs. We even lost our key and they were so nice about it and replaced it right away. The bedroom is warm during the day, but if you turn on the air conditioning and close the bathroom door, when you return home in the afternoon, it is cool enough. You will want to sit outside with view anyway! Cannot wait to return.!
