  • Cozy Firefly Cottage


    The cottage was so nice. Loved the location near the Outpost and the amenities. We played pickleball, walked the doggies and enjoyed the gorgeous fall weather.

    Really enjoyed the gas fireplace every morning and evening. Firefly has everything you need. The bed is comfy and kitchen well equipped. Amy and Rich are wonderful hosts!

  • Beautiful Home!!


    If you want beauty and serenity this is your house to stay. The owners were very nice and very helpful. The town of cashiers is wonderful! If you’re not use to mountain roads it could be a challenge but there is a pit of gold on the other side!

  • Amazing Glenville/Chinquapin vacation rental!


    Comfortable, beautiful, so very clean considering also pet friendly, and an upscale rental is accurate! We absolutely loved our 2 night stay and the only regret is we were not there longer! The home is well appointed with a modern cabin interior design (loved the decor, the wood doors and barn door sliders for closet and master bathroom), well stocked kitchen with all appliances, very comfortable furniture and bedding, remote control gas fireplace, reading material, games, washer and dryer, beautiful screen in porch with outdoor living room space, and so much more. The location of the cabin is perfect as it is right across the street from The Outpost and the golf driving range and other lawn games and amenities there. We did not have the opportunity to hit the trails or the other activities this trip but will definitely return again soon to check out all that is available. Another plus is that the owner is fantastic with communication and very friendly. All the things that you hope for with a rental stay to make you feel right at home while you are there!

  • Fantastic home in Western NC


    Firefly was the perfect place for us in western NC! The home was spotless, comfortable and everything in working order. Once you get to know the community, you will find out that the location is perfect to enjoy the neighborhood. The home had some many little touches that made it feel like home away from home. Little things like pickle ball paddles, nicely stocked kitchen...they even had a pizza cutter! We spent a lot of time on the screened porch, enjoying the community.

    Don't miss out on the hiking trails right in the neighborhood. They were beautiful and were all levels of effort. We also rented a pontoon over on Lake Glenville (only 15 mins away) that was so much fun.

    I can't say enough about the owners. The communication with them left no stone un-turned. They were really intent on making our vacation wonderful.
