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.

Beutiful.....Warm....and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Firefly cabin in Murphy, NC. The cabin is clean, decorative, and well appointed with furnishings and any kitchen utensils you may need. The outdoor deck where we spent most of our time when we were not away from the cabin fronts a beautiful private wooded view....very peaceful, private, and serene! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Our daughter loves to cook, she helped me get the kitchen stocked. My favorite is a crock pot meal started in the morning on one of the days you take a day trip away from the cabin. Coming home to dinner ready is great. Bonnie

Owner's Response: Good to see the deer are still coming through our property. Dawn and dusk we usually see them. We found a $8 bag of deer corn from Tractor supply spread on the ground below the bird feeder at the beginning of you stay at the cabin really helps. Bonnie and Dave

Outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

The property and home were both very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations.

We had a hiccup with the documentation just before arriving, but we were taken care of without any delays. They worked behind the scenes to get us squared away so that we didn't experience any delays in getting to the cabin. All the more impressive is that it was on Memorial Day and they still took care of things.

We were surprised how easy it was to day trip to 2 other states while staying here. We took day trips each day in N.C and also went to Georgia & Tennessee.

We highly recommend staying at this cabin, and would have no issues staying here again.

Restful and relaxing!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Firefly cabin is everything you can ask for and more! The peace and quite, relaxing on the deck rocking and watching the birds and wildlife is so relaxing! The weather was perfect for me even if it rained! loved listening to the rain on the metal roof! I loved the town of Murphy and I'm hoping to return and make Murphy my hometown too!!
