Why Kathleen Chambers chose Sullivan
My brother built the cabin as his home with the help of our extended family. As my children grew up it was a hub for family gatherings with a huge yard, jet skiing and multiple levels in the home for different age groups to gather. When he needed to move away he planned on selling the cabin but it felt too important to let go. I approached him about turning it into a vacation rental. This place is special. It provides a peaceful time away and it fills me with memories of our family. We hope you can build memories at FireFly Lodge too.
What makes this Cabin unique
FireFly Lodge its about Lake Shelbyville, a 11,000 acre lake, offers boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and hunting. All of the land around Lake Shelbeville is owned by the Army Corp. This is one of the few properties that we know of that has a private trail down to the lake. With 5 acres of land and forests on both sides, the only neighbors we see are the deer in the morning and friendly birds.

Great cabin off the beaten path
Second year we've stayed here. Great property to get away. Had a few issues with wifi the first year, but that seems to have improved greatly. Will likely return.
We did our Christmas at the Cabin it was wonderful. Plenty of room. We loved that there were movies and games available of all kinds plenty of sleeping room. We enjoyed the deck a great deal. Would stay again for sure.
Loved the size, location, and layout of the cabin! Lots of space for guests with games, pool table, etc. The place was stocked with enough to serve a small army. The main issue we had while there was with wifi and with many people taking showers (not even using the jacuzzi), the septic system has a tendency to back up and make the basement smell.
Sorry I was not aware of the septic backing up. No one has mentioned that, but I will check into it.
The wifi reception is the best the area offers. We suggest you use your hotspot if you are not received great reception. Based on your carrier, ATT, Verizon, etc. it depends where there nearest tower is.
Firefly was the perfect setting for a our family to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Very nice accommodations. Would be willing to stay at Firefly again!
Thank you! I hope you come back.
Peaceful Joyfilled Family Adventure!!
This was the first year we chose to celebrate God's festival of Sukkot! What an extraordinary place to fill with God's love, joy and blessings of God with our family! The beach was a nice walk and fun for all our family. We enjoyed great food, games, Bible reading, prayer and laughter around the huge table in the huge open ceiling dining/kitchen! We plan on coming every year to make new family tradition!!
Great place for a couple of families/kids. Would be nice for a few couples too. It was clean, but could use a thorough cleaning and better organization of kitchen and games. Would recommend and would stay again if back in the area! We had a great time!
Thanks, we do have a lot of board games and puzzle. Good time to reduce it down.
