About Gene and Diane

We, Gene and Diane, love to receive guest to our quaint little cottages. We live on the property and are available to assist you in any way we can to make your stay with us a pleasant one.

Gene and Diane purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Gene and Diane chose Cashiers Area

Orchard Hill Cottages are located in the Mountains in the midst of rolling pastures. Plenty of flowers, cows, rabbits and birds of all kinds to enjoy. We are close to the river where tubing and canoeing are available and also close to good hiking trails for those who prefer the woods. A few miles up Hwy 28 offers white water rafting. Gem mines are all around within a few miles.

What makes this cottage unique

This is truly country living where front porches, rocking chairs, swings, a comfortable hammock and a good little fire-pit can be used daily. We have a picnic area all set up for grilling and just relaxing down by the little creek. Do come and enjoy the beauty with us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your charming cabin. All the beautiful flowers growing around the cabin and the multitude of song birds were such a delight. Also, the pie you gave us was delicious. Thank you for everything.

Peaceful and restful.

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED being out in the Farm area yet just a 12-15 minute drive into Franklin. Listening to the birds chirping, cows mooing and watching the lightning bugs at night was such a treat from our busy lives.

The cabin was just so comfy and cozy. Beautifully decorated in a rustic chic.

My only complaint would be the mirror in the bathroom isn't big enough and the bedroom gets very warm even with the AC on in the afternoon.

But, we spent most of our time out on the large deck enjoying the cool breeze and the nature.

Definitely would go back!!

Owner's Response: Hello Gina, So glad you chose to stay with us. Thank you for letting us know about the warmth coming through the draperies in the afternoon sun. We removed damaged blinds before your arrival and just now replaced them with thermal room darkening cellular shades. On your next visit you should be more comfortable in the bedroom in the afternoon:)!

Lovely weekend at a lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

The owners are so nice and friendly. Their cabins are also ADORABLE. We've stayed with them three times now. This Little Rustic Cabin is so cute, quaint, and perfect for a getaway in the country. It has easy access to tons of hiking trails on the Appalachian too, so there is plenty to do in the area. I can't recommend it enough.
