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 Franklin

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.

The cabin was very comfortable with all details perfect for a mountain cabin! Porch is wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable stay. All essentials and comforts provided. Cabin extremely well cared for. Décor and furnishings are reminiscent of true mountain cabins and add to the ambiance while not taking away any comforts/essentials. We will return!

Amazingly Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at one of the three cabins and this time I chose The Rustic Cabin. It was soooooooo peaceful and relaxing. I spent about 90% of my time on the porch. My last night there we were treated to nature's light show with lightening bugs just dancing across the yard. The cabin itself is clean and equipped with all you need. Full size kitchen and fridge available as well. The waterfalls and Wayah Bald aren't far at all and are definitely worth the drive. Mrs.Diane and Mr.Gene are just wonderful and welcoming. I will definitely make this a continuous stop on my list of destinations!

excellent time spent in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful and perfect. The cabin was very comfortable rain or shine. We highly recommend this cabin and location. I would suggest getting there before dark as the driveway is one lane.

Pretty Good

  • 5 of 5

I have to say we were very impressed with all the obvious additional considerations given to those who rent this out; everything was thought of. The only challenge we had was waking up to the cabin being cold because the gas fireplace takes hours upon hours to heat the room...we left it on the next day so when the morning came around it was decent. Our cable did go out the second day but I can't blame the owners...stuff happens. We did enjoy our stay; thank you.

Owner's Response: No need to ever be cold. The propane stove was set on the lower setting which indeed takes a while to heat, however, there is a switch on the left back corner that can be pressed to kick up the flame to high. Much better at heating things up quickly. To all our guest, always feel free to call us on anything like this. We can talk you through these things to maximize the comfort of your stay. Respectfully, Gene and Diane
