    What a beautiful property! Cabin is perfect for a small family. Location is stunning and amenities to keep young kids and dogs busy. Hosts are so kind and have great communication. We will definitely rent again!

  • Rentals do not get better than this!


    We’ve taken dozens of trips over the past 20 years where we used short term rentals. With only a few exceptions, they’ve been anywhere from satisfactory to excellent. Staying in “Firefly” has set a new high bar that may have spoiled us going forward. For starters, the owners contacted us a few hours before the check-in time to let us know the house was ready if we wanted to arrive early. While on other trips we’ve gotten early check-in, however, we had to inquire about it instead of it being offered by the owner. A great start to our trip!

    The directions and check-in instructions were straightforward and spot on. The decorum, furnishings and appliances in the house are very tasteful, clean and fresh. On our trips we are accustomed to bringing our own paper products, hand soaps and miscellaneous household items so we don’t have to go shopping on the first day. None of that was necessary at Firefly. The list of unexpected appointments included: every sink had new hand soap; there were paper towels in the kitchen; every bath had multiple roles of TP; there are 2 coffee makers, a drip and a Keurig which had multiple K cups options; there was a snack basket that had 10 or so options with 2 of everything (popcorn, chips, granola bars, Oreo’s, etc.); and the thing that most impressed my wife (even though I’m the primary bottle washer) was a brand new unopened dish sponge in the kitchen. We have seen our share of grungy sponges at rentals so it was a nice unexpected item to start our stay.

    There are countless hiking, fishing, eating and outdoor opportunities throughout the area and, while we were on the go the entire time, our 3 days allowed us to barely scratch the surface of opportunities the area offers. We also realized toward the end of our stay that we didn’t have to leave the resort property to enjoy all the hiking and even some fishing that we needed. The resort trails we did try were very well maintained and marked. Our dog Ziggy enjoyed morning walks around the grounds and particularly enjoyed the dog park and watching me try to catch (and release) a few of the rather large rainbow trout in Tulip Pond.

    This review has gotten away from me a bit so I’ll close by saying this was the best appointed short-term rental house we’ve had the pleasure to stay in, bar none, and we look forward to staying at Firefly again when we return to Cashiers, NC.

  • Lovely Mountain Getaway!


    We had a wonderful time at Rich and Amy’s home! We booked it very last minute but they were super prompt with a welcome message and check-in instructions. They even gave us a quick call beforehand to make sure we could manage check-in with all the snow that had hit the area. The cabin was perfect and getting there was super simple with their instructions. I thought it looked absolutely magical in the snow! The house was perfectly appointed and we had a comfortable stay with a baby and toddler. It was exactly as picture! And toddler loved ALL the snacks in the welcome basket! The cabin was an easy drive in to Sapphire and Cashiers, but was remote enough from the huddle and bustle of the main streets. We will certainly be back for another visit!

  • Luxurious home away from home


    The cabin is so beautifully appointed and clean! It is situated in the village portion of Chinquapin which is super convenient to the dog park and the outpost. We even saw 2 deer on our walk around the property. Perfect for a couple or a small family. We highly recommend this gorgeous cabin.
