A Special Vacation Destination

Tucked away at the end of a quiet mountain road lies a magical place called Firefly Lodge – a hand-crafted, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, rustic lodge built atop a forested mountain. Firefly includes over a mile on the pristine trout creek that borders our property. Wild turkeys and deer wander through this unique wilderness, and casually stroll by for daily visits. When you rent the entire lodge, you’ll be immersed in 100 acres of solitude and serenity!

Firefly Lodge is the perfect destination for couples, families, or groups (anniversaries, birthday surprises, romantic getaways, family vacations, family reunions, fishing parties, small corporate groups, writers, artists, church and holistic groups).

Free Activities at Firefly Lodge:

  • Meditate in your own quiet, peaceful place
  • Conduct your small group meeting in the Caddis Hatch beside the creek, at the fire pit, in the Heritage Hut, by the fireside in the lodge, in the great room with the theatre system
  • Hike to our own waterfall, to the top of the mountain and view 3 states
  • Pack a picnic and enjoy the view while you munch – mountain top or creek side
  • Bring your rafts, tubes, kayaks – launch upstream, float 3 miles to Firefly
  • Wade or swim in the creek
  • Toast S’Mores in the campfire area overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains
  • Play family games -- old fashioned yard games (croquet, badminton, corn hole, etc) or indoor games (carom, monopoly, antique board games)
  • Watch your favorite show on the 120” screen, surround sound, home theater system with satellite service.

Other Activities Available on Property:

  • Cataraft fly fishing float trips and wade fishing opportunities in Toccoa River
  • For experienced anglers , challenging small stream fly fishing for trout
  • Expert fly fishing guides available upon request
  • Instructional fly fishing packages for families
  • Guided tour through Cherokee homeland, with Native American history
  • Firefly’s Custom Treasure Hunt (covering 100 acres)

Firefly is far more than a cabin rental. Firefly is a vacation destination. With so much to see, so much to do on our 100 acres, guests are always reluctant to leave and always anxious to return! DISCOVER MORE >

I recently heard a quote that stuck with me because I think it represents what we are striving to accomplish here at Firefly. It goes like this: "If you're looking for a more material life, speed it up. If you're looking for a more spiritual life, slow it down." At Firefly our goal is to offer a place for all our guests to slow it down, connect with nature, with our friends & family, and with our Higher Power. I'm not sure if it comes from the Cherokee who once called this their home, but the positive, healing energy of this property is undeniable. Each time I visit, I can feel the weight of all my stresses wash away the very moment I come onto the property.
In conjunction with our "slow it down" approach, I would also like to announce my sister Dawn, a skilled and licensed massage therapist, will soon be offering her services to our guests, which can be setup in a variety of areas, even by the creek with the peaceful sounds of the flowing waters. Welcome Dawn!

Welcome Howie! We’ve been enjoying our newest member here at Firefly Lodge. Rescued, bottle-fed and raised by a “deer” friend of ours after mama was killed in a car accident, Howie has now been released back into the wild here at the lodge. He is fearless and playful. He has been a big hit with our guests who enjoy the up-close interaction. Don’t miss out on all the fun—book your trip up soon to visit Howie, Bambi & friends.
