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.

Great Family Cabin
My family of 14 stayed here and found the cabin to be just perfect. It is a beautiful location in the woods, which is what we wanted. We found everything as described in the write-up. We plan to return again soon. Working with the owner was also a pleasant experience. Thanks for a great weekend!
Glad you enjoyed your time at the cabin. Hope to hear from you soon. Ted
Great cabin for families!
Great cabin for our group of 8 adults and 4 teenagers. The cabin was clean, well stocked, and everything worked as advertised. The hot tub in particular was a big hit. Also, the owner communicated pertinent information prior to our arrival which was helpful. I can definitely recommend this property.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed the cabin. Ted
We really enjoyed the place..
Quiet, Beautiful Cabin PERFECT for Friends and Family
We had an amazing time at this well-appointed, roomy, comfortable cabin. Everything was amazing. The photos don’t do the place justice. We traveled with three families and five teenagers. There was plenty of room for all 11 of us with a bedroom to spare! Our only issue was there is ZERO WiFi or cell service if you are a Verizon customer. Our friends with AT&T had no issues. We even tried the cabin WiFi. However, this was such a minor thing! We can’t speak highly enough of this wonderful property.
Very beautiful and equipped mr.ted was very infromteal andmy family really love it.
Fantastic setting for making memories on our family vacation
Thank you Ted for sharing this wonderful home! What a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing environment and surroundings! Everything was already thought of. Every concern had a perfect solution.
My entire family, age range 15 months to 85 years old traveled from New England, Florida and Maryland for my daughter's wedding in Franklin. Plenty of large gathering areas inside and outside on the expansive decks, as well as room to take space in privacy when needed. I was concerned about access inside and to outside for my elderly parents and also a post-surgery pet but there was ample accommodation for both scenarios. All amenities for infants/toddlers were already available much to relief and gratitude of our youngest parents traveling with their children. A wonderful vacation with lots of fun and memorable moments was shared with family and enjoyed by all!
* It should be noted that this is a mountain cabin and accessibility is via a fairly short but rugged and considerably steep incline. That being said, if you have a higher SUV/truck with AWD or 4WD it makes a difference, however we also traveled the terrain in our Nissan Maxima with only minor issues in a couple of sections. While helpful to keep in mind, this should not deter anyone from considering a stay at this beautifully picturesque and relaxing cabin home! It was definitely worth the adventure! We had a fabulous time!

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.
