About Ted Schropp
We first came to Franklin four years ago and fell in love with the area. When this cabin came for sale we jumped at the chance to buy it. We live and work in central Florida but drive up to the Archar Lair as much as possible and hope to move here as soon as possible.
Ted Schropp purchased this Cabin in 2012

Family Mountain Vacation
A beautiful cabin with magnificent views. However not so comfortable for a couple of mobility challenged seniors. Yes, there is a ramp providing access to the main floor. My biggest complaint would be the narrow doorways to the bathrooms that would not allow entry with a walker or wheel chair. Also no grab bars in the bathrooms. Then there was the king bed on the main floor that would have required a ladder to get onto. Next time I do vrbo, I know I need to ask more questions about the accessibility factor.
Other than those of us affected by these mobility issues, the rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed our weekand had a great time.
The most beautiful place on earth~!
We had family and friends meet us at the cabin and not one second of time in 4 days did anyone have a complaint! From Wisconsin to Missouri and the eastern NC crew...every single one person loved this house!!
The game room is great, the fire pit was well used and the hot tub as well. The grill got a workout, as we cooked everything on there...including breakfast! Ted does a wonderful job to assure the house is fully stocked, clean and ready for travelers to arrive.
The driveway is tricky, but trucks and stick shift cars made it up okay...it was scary for flatlanders, but they maneuvered okay.
I will rent this house again...no doubt. Ted is great to work with, give information as needed and even give suggestions on local food for us. I was worried about renting a house for this kind of money - sight unseen- but I no longer will fear doing this in the future, if VRBO uses quality such as this. Thanks Ted!!
Very good place for 7 boys !
Big rooms, clean, big table for all ! Perfect place to stay in this country !
Archer’s Lair was the perfect mountain getaway for our large group of 3 families.
The view was amazing and the cabin was nicely appointed and very accommodating. The kids had plenty to do while the grown ups enjoyed the wonderful outdoor spaces including the expansive deck and fire pit area. We would highly recommend Ted’s place for anyone looking to escape the daily grind and experience ‘God’s Country’. There was so much to do including whitewater rafting on the Nantahala in Bryson City which we thoroughly enjoyed. Do not hesitate to stay at this fabulous cabin in Franklin!
I'm glad you and everyone in your group had a great time. Ted
Beautiful cabin and a wonderful time had by all!
This cabin was the perfect pick for our extended family trip!!! The rooms were beautiful and comfy!!! The Game room was awesome!!! To top it all off, the views were amazing!!! Also, Ted, the owner, was a pleasure to work with!!!
Located on 5 acres. Plenty of room for the kids to explore. Close to few remaining ruby mines that offer native gemstones. Rafting on Nantahala river is only 45 minutes away. Great motorcycle rides everywhere, about one hour from tail of the Dragon. Away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to all the shopping and dining, just 10 miles from downtown Franklin.
