Guestbook comments from the manager

We traveled to the area on motorcycles and had a slight amount of trouble navigating up the hill to find the place while riding but one quick stop to look at the directions and we were in the driveway! On the first morning we were greeted by a bear at the front door, the second day she returned with two cubs! She was not at all threatening and the cubs were adorable, one of the many things that made our stay a lifelong memory!

Pack some Forks!!!!

  • 3 of 5

This rental was ok. Our family of five..three kids ages 10-17 loved the pool table and the floor plan worked well with everyone being on a different level. This provided privacy. The rental was not super clean. The bathrooms were very clean, but the whole place could use a very good dusting and there was a minor ant problem in the kitchen and bathroom on that level. The number of utensils available was unacceptable. There were 3 forks!!!!! They need to definitely add some silverware/glasses/mugs. The access to the rental was quite steep and I noticed much better access to other units. There are pool passes, but no information at all about where the pool is etc. We called the number emailed to us when we booked, and the person who tried to help us but had little information. The listing also said they had interenet access, but we found no available networks. We called about that, but again got little in the way of help. The beds were comfortable and overall we had a nice trip.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the guest review and are sorry there were some concerns during their visit. We are so glad that they did enjoy their stay. We have replaced kitchen utensils, dishes and cookware as needed and are sorry about that. We have created new property information books that are being delivered to all of our properties. This book covers everything from emergency numbers to how to work the TV's - Pool information is being included in our books too, but is also available through our mobile app. and guest personal iTrip account. The driveway is moderately steep, but does have plenty of parking and maneuvering room that is flat and at the bottom of driveway.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the firefly chalet. During our stay we watched several bears walk past the house. We were close to town, but still surrounded by nature. The rooms were comfortable and there was plenty of space for our family of 6. The chalet offered all the conviences of home. The property manager was responsive to our needs when we contacted them for extra blankets. One thing I would suggest for improvement would be a dehumidifier in the basement. To me, it was very dank and this can be corrected. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the jacuzzi tub. We were able to have fun, visit attractions in town, and relax. Finally, the reservation staff were plesant and made booking our stay a breeze.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at Firefly Chalet and for taking the time to share a review of the property and your experience with us and other travelers. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back again soon! On a side note: There are bears - and other critters that frequently move through the area - it is always neat to see them passing through. It is good to know ( for future guests ) we do share information on bear & wildlife safety and what to expect - how to safely observe wildlife while visiting. We have an email that we send out now, with links to the National Park etc.... Thanks again!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean place to enjoy the mountains, each morning we watched bears and even a bobcat. Neither of which payed any attention to the fact we were watching and taking pictures. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review! That is amazing that you saw a Bobcat too!!!! Wildlife is abundant and active in this area. We do send out an email to guests with information about safe distances and what to expect with local wildlife - and as always we tell guests "Don't feed the Bears or otherWildlife" this habituates them and they eventually will have to be euthanized - this is unfortunate. Thank you Thank you for maintaining your distance and it sounds like you got some great photos! Looking forward to helping you plan your next stay! Come back soon!

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say firefly met and exceeded all of my expectations! from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out we felt right at home. My family and I enjoyed our stay, the pictures just don't do it justice. We loved how clean and homey it was and we will definitely make this the cabin of choice when I go back to Gatlinburg.

Great Stay-Exciting Bear Activity

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time at the Firefly! The place was clean and had everything we needed. Here are the only complaints we really had: The decor is a little dated, the DVD players didn't all work, and the kitchen is out dated if you're going to cook your meals--but that is it. The location is awesome to the pools and the pools are great. We had a few different bears that came daily which was exciting. Its very quiet except for the natural sounds of mountains. Boomer the chalet caretaker is amazing and answered all our questions and brought everything we needed. There is a grocery store 10 mins away. The binder in the place could be updated with information. Its very close to Ober Gatlinburg!! The tram goes over it which is fun to watch. The view is not great but its very private on the flip side. Great place for the price. I would stay here again and have recommended it to my friends. Contact me for info! Great for couples and families too

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit to Firefly. We have made some improvements since your stay and are working on new binders with information about the chalet as well as local attractions and dining. Thank you for mentioning that you can see the Ober Gatlinburg Tram from the Chalet and for sharing your perspective on the pools, both of these are great amenities and watching the Tram go by is really cool. We look forward to having you back with us soon!

Firefly cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Firefly, above Gatlinburg very much!!! The cabin was well represented in the online pictures, and very well kept! Gatlinburg will not let you run out of adventure! If you are bored on your vacation...you're doing something wrong! The only issue we had was black bears. It is apparent that some visitors must be feeding them, because they are ever present. While beautiful to watch from the safety of the balcony, we were concerned in our back and forth to the SUV. (5 kids to get back and forth safely!)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Firefly! In regards to the bears, we would like to let you and future travelers know that A.) we now send out an email regarding Black Bears and Safety to all of our guests on their day of arrival. B.) Black Bears are most active during Spring - Summer -and Fall months C.) The TWRA has taken care of the particular family of bears that were frequenting the area and cabin. Unfortunately, visitors were feeding the bears and this caused them to become acclimated / or accustomed to humans. We do look forward to helping you with your next vacation to the Smokies! We hope to have you back soon.
