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 Franklin

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..

Everything that we were expecting and more.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the fact that it was hassle free and peaceful... plan on going back when the garden starts coming in.The only thing that would have made it better is if some how they could incorporate letting their guest interact with the farm and have a hands on approach to the farm life.

Beautiful & Charming

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Franklin & Highlands during off season, just for a much needed getaway. We both work rotating shifts and rarely have more than a day off together. We booked this charming little cottage, honestly based on the great price and the fact that it was just our size, expecting it to just fulfill what we needed. It was so much more than that. We are country folk and are always looking to find solitude in the country. This cottage was in a beautiful location, away from the city lights yet only a few miles from the main highway. The drive to and from was beautiful pastures and so scenic. It was small yet roomy and open, and furnished and decorated perfectly for its size. It had lots of windows, we woke up to birds singing all 3 mornings. We couldn’t have ask for a better “time out” from our busy lives. The Blue Spruce was just what we needed. Thanks Gene & Diane!

Extremely hospitable, beautiful cabin, great amenities and very peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Gene and Diane are extremely friendly and hospitable. Our cabin was very clean as well as cozy and well supplied with all the amenities we could ask for! My husband and I chose to honeymoon here and we will definitely be back in the future. Our cabin was quiet, peaceful and private but also a reasonable distance from Franklin as well as Highlands. We are very pleased with our stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!
