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..

My husband and I loved this little cottage. Perfect for a quite "get away"

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late afternoon . The cottage was just like pictured on site. The owners had it ready for us. We felt welcomed. We had a relaxing time. We kept windows open and we could hear out door wilderness noises. We even had a friendly dog come visit on a few days. This is definitely a wonderful vacation choice.

Even better than last year...which was great!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed out stay. The size was perfect for two. Everything was decorated and furnished perfectly and very clean. The back yard was fabulous, including the hammock and fire-pit. Very peaceful and relaxing. We stayed at another cabin managed by the same couple last year. Our only problem was parking out big truck. So this year we moved down two cabins for better parking. I would highly recommend all of the properties managed by Gene and Diane. Diane was wonderful and very helpful in choosing the right cabin for us.

Excellent cabin, beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The description doesn't do justice for the cabin. Wonderful, cozy, comfortable, quiet and well appointed! Gene and diane are great host. Thanks for your hospitality. We will be back! Don't hesitate to rent this one or either of the other two. Priced very reasonably.
