Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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..
