This was probably our 10th or 11th stay in a B&B. We decided to visit the Georgia mountains for a little R&R. It is about 5 or 6 miles out of Blue Ridge, GA. When we arrived we were greeted by three wild turkeys feeding on the corn that Bart puts out for them. We traveled on a well maintained through a wooded area on a gravel road for about 1 mile and came into a beautiful opening with the lodge nestled in the middle of it. The pictures of the outside do not do justice to the interior. All hand hewn logs, with a large fire place and very tastefully decorated. Our room was equally well decorated with its on private bath. Nina and Bart were marvelous hosts and could not do enough for us. The breakfasts were fantastic including good Southern cooking made from all natural products. You will not find ingredients out of a box here. The location allowed us to visit various sights within 20 - 30 minutes drive and when we came back in the evening Nina was quick to offer some wonderful desserts, that included pecan cake one night and cinnamon rolls the next night. If you just prefer to relax and not go anywhere there are great decks where you can sit and read a book or go out short hike down to the river or stream that flows into it and well stocked with trout. All in all, a great Thanksgiving weekend to enjoy and be catered to. We would highly recommend it to anybody that wants to get away and relax.

My wife and I celebrated the week of our 45th wedding anniversary travelling south from PA. Little did we know the jewel (a diamond in the woods) we would find with Bart and Nina. The penultimate hosts could not do enough for us - pampered yet left to ourselves every day. Their property is beautiful and the dogwoods in bloom were a special gift, as were the flock of wild turkeys and two herd of deer; one gentle enough to feed. Do yourself a favor and visit this place and meet the fine hosts.

Firefly Lodge is a unique and perfect place to enjoy nature and that's exactly what we did. We loved the tour Nina gave us through the gardens and property to the creek filled with trout, and marveled at the close-up interaction of the deer that came up to the lodge. Our breakfast was always a special meal, and Nina surprised us every evening with her delicious home made desserts. And the ambience of warm and comfy lodge along with our time around the wood burning fireplace completed our evenings. Nina and Bart pour their heart and soul into everything and we will be back. John and Camille.

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary at this beautiful lodge. We enjoyed getting to know Nina and Bart who pampered us throughout our stay and made us feel like family. We were so excited to meet Bambi (deer) and her gang as well as the turkeys. The breakfasts and snacks were outstanding. I highly recommend the apple cobbler with ice cream. The property offers so much to do from walking trails, creeks, rivers, wildlife, etc. We enjoyed magnificent sunsets and star gazing right off the back deck of our room. We especially like the home theater system, it was like being at the drive-in! We plan to return soon. The lodge is rich with history and beautiful antiques. We could go on an on- go and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

There is just sooo much to say about this unique and serene property. The breakfast can't be beat- pecan pancakes with berries, bananas, and whipped cream with sausage on the side. Oh my! Enjoy the deer and turkey you can see from the front porch. One deer you can actually feed, her name is Bambi of course! Sit next to the fire inside with coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate! A specially made dessert and snacks in the evening. Enjoy a hot bath in the bear claw tub with some Chardonnay! Just simply perfect! Enjoy the large cozy living room with a projection screen. Take a short hike then visit downtown Blue Ridge, come home and watch a movie on the big screen and have some snacks by the fire. Or build a fire outside and make s'mores. So many choices to meet your needs. Simply heaven on earth, it can't be beat! Not to mention the handmade house with so much character! You won't regret it!

I live on another continent ( island really) and our billing system is totally not compatible with the US. I ended up having to send a cheque and while I waited the best Hostess, Nina kept me updated via email. Nina and Bart were up for our late arrival and had been in communication since my plane landed to ensure we didn't get lost. Each night Nina made a special dessert. We'd gone apple picking a few days later and she made an apple crumble with them! The night sounds were so soothing that we slept with the doors open. In the mornings, the deer would skitter across the expansive property. I'm describing heaven, pretty much. Nina and Bart were unintrusive and as available as we wanted them to be! Bart was full of details and charming stories of the Lodge's history. They have a waterfall on their property! And if you like to fish??? There's no other place to be really. I'm in love. With the Firefly Fishinf Lodge, it's quaint little town, it's amenities and with Nina and Bart. I'm a singer and it turns out that Nina is a poet. We stayed up late sharing with each other the night before I left. They have the most gorgeous library with a hidden surprise! A drop down screen with LCD projected television and movies!! This little rustic getaway is a techie's dream as well. It's gonna see my face every year...and I'll know that I'm home when I sink into the MOST comfortable bed EVER! ( I've travelled the world and stayed at swanky hotels only to call down for more blankets and set up camp on the floor.) This place is a no brainier and I'd love to keep it to myself...BUT I'll share it with you as long as there's always a place for me:) Now, GO! I bet it's beautiful in winter!! Love, Joy T Barnum

took my wife to fire fly for a different experience and I have to say best decision I ever made, Nina and Bart are the best, the moment we walk through the door we welcomed like family, my wife fell in love with Nina and it was like coming home from away, breakfast is awesome and I mean you dont find the kind of taste in restaurants good, the tour was vast and you learn to appreciate nature, we took a small hike and were amaze at everything, im writing this review from my cell phone while im still there amazing, I just could not wait, if you want a bed and breakfast location and an amazing time away from the city, fire fly is well worth it, Nina and Bart sure do make it and next year I hope to rent out the cabin with the kids

Nestled in the North GA mountains is a hidden treasure, Firefly Lodge. The hand built lodge is a wonder to behold. Fireflies dancing in the meadow at dusk, deer and turkey feeding just beyond the porch, and the waterfall at the cabin lulling you to sleep are a must see! The best treasure is its owners, Bart and Nina. They dearly love their mountain home and cabin and enjoy sharing it with others. They make you feel right at home. This remote, quiet mountain treasure you don't want to miss. Once there, you won't want to leave!! C Allyn Moultrie, GA
