We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest cabin, Firefly Lodge! In season, fireflies sparkle throughout the 48-acre property, from grass to treetops. Firefly Lodge has the most spectacular, sweeping views of any of our cabins, and is extremely private and quiet.
Firefly Lodge has everything you need for your family gathering or group, including upstairs and downstairs living rooms, washer/dryer, large dining room table which can seat 22 people at one time (with all leaves). Take time to explore the grounds – take a stroll by the fountain in the back yard, play a friendly game of yard volleyball (coming August 2021), or take a short hike up the steps to the scenic overlook. Your group will have exclusive use of the entire property (with the exception of the staff cottage) during your stay.
Firefly Lodge (along with our other 6 cabins on our main property) is only 5 minutes from Townsend, TN, which has wonderful restaurants, river tubing, ATV rental, a FREE railroad museum, horseback riding, Tuckaleechee Caverns, an art gallery (with items for purchase), quaint coffee shops, a grocery store, a chocolate shop, and more! Access to the nation’s ONLY free National Park, Cades Cove, is only 15 minutes away. Antique shops abound in nearby towns. Tourist areas such as Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Gatlinburg are only 30-45 minutes away, and have all the best family activities, including the Tanger Outlets, many amazing restaurants, Dollywood, The Island, and much more!
Coming summer 2022, you will be able to enjoy Firefly Lodge’s private pool, which will be accessible exclusively to its guests. Until then, you will have access to the shared pool at Elk Lodge on our main property, from May-September.
You will feel like royalty when you stay at Firefly Lodge, which was one the of the former homes of Author and Philanthropist, Doris Eakes. CBM (Children’s Bible Ministries), the ministry that owns TRC and all of its cabins, purchased this new property in May 2021 and is so excited to share with you the glory of God’s creation clearly on display at our newest cabin, Firefly Lodge. As with the rental of any of TRC’s cabins, we thank you for your stay, which supports the work of CBM.
