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.

Excellent. Nicest rental cabin we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Can’t share enough good things to say! The cabin was immaculate and well furnished and supplied. We cooked all our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. Loved the large porch and peaceful surroundings. If directions for the tv remotes could be posted it would have made that process a little easier but we eventually figured it out. A dimmer on the kitchen table overhead light would be nice as well. We had an amazing stay and enjoyed everything immensely. Check in and out was a breeze as well. Definitely want to come back in the fall to enjoy the foliage. We did not see any wildlife this time so we’re hoping to see some next time. Thank you for sharing your home.

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!!!!
