I wasn't exactly sure what we were getting when I booked. I was impressed with the pictures, but I didn't think much about what "off the grid" really means. That was my fault. So think about that before you book. Not all of my family was as pleased with no plumbing as I thought they might be. The cabin was quaint, comfortable, and clean, as pictured. There were small piles of a sawdust-type material in the loft when we arrived, and one appeared on the main floor during the first night. We didn't know what it was and didn't really worry about it. The firepit area was nice. There was a propane heater and an ample supply of water. Comfy beds. The drive up the one-lane road was a bit scary. It is a steep climb; we were glad for 4WD. We weren't sure what we would do if we met another car, but that never happened. We left at 11 PM the second night when our girls discovered an emormous spider in the outhouse. My husband first went out to kill it, but he came back and said he wasn't going to try to bring that monster down (in the dark). We think it as a Carolina Wolf Spider (maybe?), but it would cover a man's palm. Hubby was the one who didn't think "off the grid" was an ideal vacation, so this was the straw that broke the camel's back. We packed up quickly and drove to a nice hotel an hour down the road. Hosts were responsive before our stay and also during, but you can't reach them from the cabin without cell service, so there's that. Great for some, probably not for all!

We loved the cabin, it’s beautiful and comfortable, has a lovely view and is far enough away from neighbors. The pulley system for the loft entertained my kids for hours. The only thing I didn’t love was the guest bathroom at the HQ, it’s not pretty like the cabin is, but I did appreciate the hot shower.

The hosts were remarkable. Checking in on us each day and provided ample tips for preparing to visit as well as things to do as we were there. Don’t be scared of the outhouse….it was cleaner than my bathroom at home. Be prepared for a single lane drive up to the cabin with some steeps inclines at points. I highly recommend the host and Firefly cabin. Looking forward to renting again in the future.

Enjoyed our stay at Firefly. The only suggestion would be to have some type of battery operated fan on the ceiling to regulate the heat at night for those sleeping in the loft.

Off Grid
We had a great off grid stay in the cabin. It was just as expected.
