About Gene or Diane

Diane & I purchased this property to get away from the hustle-bustle of big city life. Diane is from Quebec, and I, Gene, from Oklahoma. WE FOUND OUR PARADISE on this side of Heaven right here in the mountains of NC!

Gene or Diane purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Gene or Diane chose Cashiers Area

This property suited our desire completely. A place that feels like yesteryear. A place where time slows down. We can grow flowers, work the soil and meet wonderful people in the process. The photo in the thumbnail is Gene's dad and his cousin playing their musical instruments on a Sunday afternoon. This represents the type of living we like here at Orchard Hill Cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is easily accessible with paved roads leading to the cottages. We are on-site landlords and are available 24 hours a day for any assistance you may need. Most denominational churches are nearby. Downtown Franklin is only 5+ miles away. A new theater, The Smokey Mountain Theater For The Performing Arts, offers first class entertainment.

We have a nice picnic area on the creek with a gas grill, swing, picnic table and fire pit.

Come and visit us and relax..

Our stay at the little Blue Spruce Cabin in Fraklin was all that we expected and then more!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is so cozy, the perfect get away for two, and a wonderful way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The cabin was spotless and contained everything anyone could need for a few nights away. Very well insulated too, I might add. This Florida couple didn't freeze once in the 30 degree nights! We loved our stay with Gene and Dianne!

Wonderful Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful spot for our Anniversary Weekend Getaway! Cozy is a great word for this cabin. It was just the perfect size for the two of us. It was very clean and it had everything that we needed (except we forgot to bring bar soap so had to pick that up when we were in town). It was quite cool outside but the little heater that was provided worked great! It is in a very quiet, remote area but not too far to get back into Franklin! We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful cottage and yard. Everything was clean and adorable. Absolutely comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained and beautiful cottage and property. Great location to festivals and quaint mountain towns. We had 4 days of serenity grilling and relaxing in that hammock and relaxing by the fire pit after a day enjoying the mountains. It was the perfect getaway and we travel as much as possible. Thank you soon much!!!!!

Words cannot describe how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay. We celebrated 21 years of marriage enjoying stunning hikes and being able to come back to such a warm inviting "home". We miss it already! We had an unforgettable, beautiful trip...thank you!

A little piece of heaven in Norh Carolina

  • 5 of 5

Blue Spruce cabin near Franklin was so lovely I didn't ever want to leave. It's small, but has everything necessary and is beautifully decorated and charming inside and out. Its setting, nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains, is stunning beyond imagination. I woke up happy every morning and snuggled down happily every evening. Gene and Diane were super friendly hosts. Hope to be able to stay in their cabin again one day.

Cozy and sweet experience

  • 5 of 5

We arrived quite late and it was very convenient because the key is in the door already. The place was clean and cozy. The surroundings are truly sweet.

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed our time in this cabin.
