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..

Great area to visit. Bryson City and Waynesville, Highlands were close by to visit.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was quiet and clean and restful. Good location in the country and close enough to Franklin to shop.

My wife and I would stay again in the future.

Adorable and amazing

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quiet area, even with the cows and chickens in the distance (which I loved hearing). The cabin is very clean and has all the necessities; it makes you feel right at home. It's also not too far from local stores, which is a plus if you forgot to bring something from home. This is definitely the place to come to if you want to relax. Also, I ended up meeting the owner by chance and he was super nice. Thank you again!

Great cabin in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming cabin, great for a couple looking for a break from it all. Close to Franklin, but not too close.

Wake up to the soft cluck of chickens in their pen, the birds chirping, and a few cows mooing!

We arrived and found a very clean and cozy cabin with everything you need, including a washer and dryer - great for washing after a day of white water rafting or kayaking.

Full size refrigerator lets you stock up and prepare meals, then enjoy the view of the back yard while you eat.

Great experience and will definitely book this again when we return to NC!

Heaven on earth! Beautiful cottage in the country.

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with this cottage! It was beautiful, comfortable, and very clean.

It was peaceful and quiet. We watched the fireflies and rabbits at night and just enjoyed the whole atmosphere. The owners are lovely, friendly folks and they made sure we had everything we needed.

I would definitely stay there again and plan to, whenever we visit Franklin.
