Unforgettable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is beautiful! It was super clean! Very comfortable!! It had everything we could possibly need, I went with my 3 kids (ages 10-16) They loved the cabin as well, lovely nature around, lots of birds in the morning! We had a great time, went snow tubing. We were hoping to see snow and at least it snowed a little the first morning and they enjoyed it very much (they had never seen snow, this was the purpose of the trip) We also went to stand in 3 states at the same time, GA, TN and NC which is just 15 min away! Also Dave and Bonnie were extra helpful when needed and that's what really matters, nothing out there is going to be 100% perfect, but as long as everything is taken care of, that's what's important!! deposit was refunded fast. Thank you Dave and Bonnie for an unforgettable stay!!! Please let me know the brand of the mattress in the master bedroom, I slept sooooo good I want to get exactly the same one!!!!

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

By far the nicest cabin I have stayed at. Not only was the view nice, but the size of the cabin and everything it came with was too. The master bedroom with personal bathroom was perfect and the flatscreens in every room was a nice touch. I really enjoyed sitting on the porch every morning, drinking my coffee, and enjoying the view. Bonnie was also a huge help as well, she responded to all emails and provided us with all infor necessary. I would definitely book and stay again!!

Fabulous Vacation Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for 5 nights and absolutely loved it!!! It is beautifully decorated and so comfortable--we didn't want to leave. Bonnie and Dave provided detailed driving instructions to the cabin, including pictures which really helped. My husband is an excellent cook, so we usually prefer to eat at home, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The cabin is nestled in the woods and during our stay, we saw deer, foxes, squirrels and birds. We enjoyed visiting Murphy and checking out real estate opportunities in this beautiful area. We loved this cabin and will definitely stay here again!

Nice, modern clean and comfortable cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Did have a problem finding as small address sign blends right in w/the surrounding woods and written directions from property manager were ambiguous. Driveway is a little steep. Small inconveniences that this cabin more than makes up for!!!

Owner's Response: The road can feel steep for those of us from the flat lands, good thing is you don't need 4 wheel drive. Good suggestion on the sign, we wanted to get a bigger sign made with the cabin name. We will work on that.

About Dave and Bonnie

Dave and Bonnie, we are from Florida and just fell in love with Firefly Cabin. It's so quiet, great escape from the heat and humidity. Dave grew up in New Hampshire, Bonnie in Washington state, we did not realize how much we missed the mountains, trees and the change of seasons until we started visiting North Carolina.

Quite often my good friend Rhonda joins us. She loves the hiking and fishing as much as we do. She is in our owner picture.

Dave and Bonnie purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Dave and Bonnie chose Murphy

You feel like your in the mountains even though your very close to Murphy, Blue Ridge and Blairsville. Every trip we see more animals. Last trip be saw a bobcat, we always see deer, occasionally we see raccoons, and the fat squirrel is most always there. Still have not seen a Bear, but we have heard tell they are in the area. All you need is bag of deer corn and a suet block for the bird feeder to draw in the wildlife.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet and peaceful, enjoy the quite, read, watch a movie, just talk. There is full internet service, but you can turn it off.
