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 Smoky Mountains

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..

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.

A perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My only regret is not booking a longer stay. It was a last minute getaway...It is not Super close if you're driving from Highlands (a little over 30 minutes) and the roads are super curvy and not the easiest to navigate (But that is pretty much anywhere up in the mountains along hwy 28 or 64). However, the scenery is beautiful and there are multiple waterfalls to stop and look at along the way.

Don't let the small cottage or rustic feel fool you. The house is fully updated inside and has everything you need (even free wi-fi). Though it would be even better with a fireplace if you're staying in the winter. There is a nice area outside with a firepit and plenty of wood, though we weren't there long enough to enjoy it. The owners were super friendly and Very quick to respond with any query.

Overall, my wife and I really loved it!!

Thank You!

Blue Spruce cabin was absolutely charming. Just right for a long weekend in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is cozy and comfortable. It's nicely furnished and had everything we needed. The location is just a few minutes out of Franklin making it convenient and still close enough for easy travel to local sights like Dry Falls and Wayah Bald.

Great little cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very cozy, clean, and cute on beautiful land. Only complaint we had was that toiletries (soap, shampoos) and other little things like coffee/coffee filters and paper towels were not provided.
