Ron's review


Great Cabin

The cabin was extremely clean and fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay.  Great location, short distance to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.  Would definitely rent from them again.

Adam's review


Great cabin close to Gatlinburg

Cabin was as wonderful as other reviews have said. Photos are spot on. Our family enjoyed our stay and are already talking about renting the cabin again, but for a longer stay.

Lydia's review


Beautiful and clean

The cabin was beautiful and sparkling clean. The owners added some nice touches. They responded quickly to any questions and were a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend this cabin.

Harmoni's review



We loved everything about this cabin! Excellent communication by email of check in and check out process. Friendliness of the owners sending texts of reminders and to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We plan on visiting again soon and hopefully securing this property again!

James's review


What a delightful cabin for a “get away.”

We stayed at Fireflies & Moonshine. It was a delightful place to stay for a “get away.”  We appreciated the cleanliness and all the amenities.  In the morning, we loved having our coffee on the back porch and during the day we would take time and swing in the swing on the front porch. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks April and Dave for your hospitality.

Danvis's review



Such a great cabin!  It was very well maintained and the owners take pride in this property. They also make sure you have what you need. The sunroom was prefect for a cup of coffee and making great memories. Thanks again to Dave and April.

Gina's review



The cabin was beautiful. True cabin feel with all your home amenities, such as, washer and dryer and dishwasher. The kids loved the shuffleboard table. Pool was right down the street and you're close to the town of Gatlinburg. We had a blast.

Kelly's review


All you could want

As many other viewers have shared, the property is immaculately maintained, looks exactly like the on-line photos and has all the amenities renters in the Smokies have come to expect: spacious cabin layout, updated furnishings, hot tub, Jacuzzi and even access to a neighborhood pool After a long day of travel, we truly appreciated the ease of check-in by simply driving to the cabin and entering a passcode to enter the home.

After 25 years of visiting this area and staying in a wide variety of locations (Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, hotel, condo, and cabin), our family has come to really appreciate staying near the Arts and Crafts loop for its quiet, out-of-the-hustle vibe and access to other areas of the national park. There are great restaurants and easy access to shopping which lets you decide if you want to "join the masses" or enjoy the peace this area offers. The best part is, either way, you are only minutes from where you want to go.

Kristy's review


Enjoyed the cabin!

We really enjoyed our time here! So many things were clearly marked and easy to find. I could find everything I needed. April was quick to answer, when I had a question. The cabin was clean and cosy and we can really recommend it. Good location and there is even a Food City close by.

Tamara's review


So wonderful!

Loved this cabin!  I have to say it is one of the cleanest, nicest places I have ever spent a vacation.  It is so wonderfully personally decorated, just like a home not a stripped down rental.  I would highly recommend this place. But beware it is not in a flat neighborhood. You are in the mountains.  And it is in a neighborhood. But though the cabins were close, it felt very private.  My absolute favorite was the sun room.  We spent most of the time in the cabin in this room.  You looked out into felt far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I hope to return soon.  April and Dave were very responsive and pleasant. Highly recommended!

Smarth's review


Amazing weekend in the mountains

We went there with our friends and we had the best time! The cabin for clean and had everything and more we could have ever asked for. It was easy to find, parking was perfect, and the decor was really nice. We were very pleased with our cabin and will be using the same one when we come back

Bill's review


Great location!

This was our first vacation in a long time and it did not disappoint. It was as if this cabin was made just for us. This cabin is only minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg but seems as if it is away from everything! The sun porch on the back is perfect for morning coffee and planning your day. The cabin itself is stunning and clean. If we go back to Gatlinburg, this is the only place we would want to stay. I rate it 5 stars and then some!

Lee's review


This is a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed it very much.

Many times we may just look at the pictures and location of a place when trying to make a decision on where to stay. We may not be considering the people behind the property. April and Dave are worth a few stars just on their own. They were very detailed in there communication about their wonderful property. They also had additional information about the property and surrounding area waiting for us inside the cabin. They even texted us after the first night to make sure everything was well. When we return we will certainly be checking with April and Dave first!

Lisa's review



In December 2018, my husband and I stayed in this cabin with our two young children and couldn’t have been happier. We arrived early on check in day and the owners were very accommodating and provided us with early access to the cabin. It was decorated for Christmas and ready for Santa’s arrival. The cabin was perfect...spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and had all of the necessities our family needed.  The upstairs bedroom and loft were the warmest rooms in the cabin and there were several fans available (including a ceiling fan) to help circulate the air so it wasn’t a problem. The location of the cabin with respect to downtown Gatlinburg was ideal...close to everything without being in the middle of the holiday crowds. The owners are absolutely wonderful and were quick to respond and very helpful.  We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return in the very near future. Thank you!

Jennie's review


Amazing weekend getaway!

My friends and I spent last weekend at the cabin. What a great time we had. The cabin is amazing and spacious. Check in was easy and we had no trouble locating the property. In fact, I could have stayed there a week, and was sad it was just for the weekend. I plan to visit again next year. April and Dave are great hosts. There is detailed information readily available in the cabin to answer any questions you may have during your stay. I highly recommended this cabin to anyone.

Paul's review


Beautiful Cabin!

We absolutely loved this cabin, wish we could have moved in permanently! April and Dave have done a fantastic job decorating, also had new appliances and furniture recently installed. Loved the back porch/quiet room, great place for my morning quiet time. After staying in other cabins that were in need of repairs/updating, this one was a very pleasant surprise. We hope to be back again soon!

Dustin's review


Amazing Cabin

April and Dave's cabin was amazing. it looks great in the ad and is even more amazing in person. Roomy, comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for. Close enough to downtown Gatlinburg that its convenient but far enough away to feel secluded. If you have any doubt, you will not be disappointed, highly recommended.

Jennifer's review


Cute Cabin!

This cabin was super cute and clean! We Loved sitting on the front porch swing overlooking the beautiful view! And above all else it was in the perfect location, we came here for a baseball tournament in pigeon forge (15-20 min drive). And the town of Gatlinburg was a cute little town with so much to do! We loved driving up the mountains and taking in all the amazing sights around this cabin! We would love to come here again!

Karen's review


Beautiful place

Beautiful place! Easy booking process. April and Dave were wonderful with keeping us posted on events in the area and fast response to questions. The cabin is in a great the beaten path but still a short drive to all the attractions. Cabins was more than well stocked, comfortable, homey and welcoming. There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the front porch and the neighbors are wonderful. We will definately be returning as well as recommending our friends and family.

Ashley's review


Beautiful and well maintained cabin

The cabin was beautiful and well maintained. You can tell they take good care of their homes. And it was just far enough away from the madness of downtown but close enough to for a quick drive to pigeon forge or gatlinburg. We loved our stay there and will definitely be back the next time we visit the smokies. I’ve never stayed in a cabin before versus a hotel and I now know I will from here on out.

Kristin's review


Nice cabin community. Plenty of room. Very clean and nicely decorated.

We had a wonderful stay at the fireflies and moonshine cabin! Our family of 4 had plenty of room. The views were beautiful and the kids really enjoyed playing shuffle board as well as getting in the hot tub. The cabin was very clean and well equipped for anything we needed. Our last night in town we chose to eat at Crystelle Creek Diner, right up the road, and it was a fabulous atmosphere with delicious food. We also really enjoyed all the amenities at Pigeon Forge. We hope to come back soon!

David H's review

David H

Place was exactly as described - and really clean!!!

Place was exactly as described - and really clean!!! Location was perfect for our kids' athletic tournament and it accommodated our party of 6 (2 parents, 2 teenagers and 2 kids) wonderfully. We brought more than we needed, as April and Dave had their cabin stocked with all the necessities (towels, sheets, blankets, paper products, etc.) Location can't be beat with convenience to downtown Gatlinburg, yet the quiet and privacy of being in a cabin - best of both worlds. The communication was great - especially considering this was our first AirBnB experience. Only complaint is I wish we could have stayed longer...

Kathy K's review

Kathy K

Wonderful cozy inviting cabin

April and Dave answered questions quickly. The cabin was charming and inviting. The kitchen is well equipped for most cooking needs. The beds were comfortable with the exception of the futon but I’ve never met a comfortable futon. Plenty of comfortable sitting room for the guests. I don’t have anything negative to say about the cabin or the stay. I would recommend a dedicated space for recycling

Coleen's review


I Love this Cabin!!!

Fireflies and Moonstone is very pretty, nicely decorated, and clean. The beds were comfortable and so were the recliners and couches. The only complaint I might have is that the stairs and the front door could use a little space between them, but that’s not a dealbreaker in my view of the cabin. I rent cabins in Gatlinburg/Wears Valley normally a couple of times a year and this is by far the nicest I’ve been in for quite a while. Mountain Shadows Resort is a nicely kept resort, and convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. The owners have been great about sending me information about the cabin and staying in contact. My family and I had a great time here and I plan to stay here in this cabin again. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a nice stay in Gatlinburg.

Gary's review


Perfect Cabin!

This cabin is perfect for long or short stays. My family really enjoyed the close proximity to all the attractions and local stores. The shuffle board in the cabin added to some great evening competition between the senior and junior members of our family. I highly recommend this cabin.

Mindy's review


Great location!

We came to Gatlinburg for a soccer tournament that was being played at Rocky Top Sports. Moonshine and Fireflies is conveniently located near the sports complex. We really enjoyed being able to relax between games and have a washer and dryer to wash uniforms. The cabin is also an easy drive into Gatlinburg or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well. The owners suggested some great restaurants nearby and it was nice to find good places to eat without needing to park in Gatlinburg. I really enjoyed all the recliners in the house to watch TV or to sit and read on the enclosed porch. There is definitely enough places and chairs in the house for everyone to have some space. Even though there are other houses that are nearby, I really enjoyed the big front porch and porch swing. While there is not a huge view of the mountains, they are still beautiful in the background. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and dishes and it is easy to park two cars in the parking spaces. I would definitely stay here again!

Kim's review


The cabin was perfect!

The cabin was perfect!! We spent the week enjoying some much needed family time with the kids. The cabin and photos were exactly as in the description listing. It was located just a short ride to down town Gaitlinsburg but far enough away from all the tourist crazy. The grocery store is right down the street. The cabin is perfectly decorated and extremely clean. It has all of the amenities of home with a few extras. I brought my own crock pot but I didn't need to there was one already in the closet. This cabin has everything you could possibly need. I did bring extra towels because I do have two teenagers who use a ton of towels. We were all extremely happy with our stay. I highly recommend this cabin. And, we will be coming back in the near future.

Kim's review


Helpful owners, beautiful cabin

April & Dave were great hosts. We got a bit lost heading up to the cabin, and they were super helpful getting us that way. Cabin was a really beautiful place to stay.

Liz's review


Great cabin

Such a great cabin!!! Very clean, decorated super cute, and roomy!!! It's in a great location, close to the grocery store and a nice drive to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge!!! Hope to come back and stay here next year!!!

Sherri's review



I stayed in Fireflies & Moonshine cabin the first week of June 2017 with my granddaughter and her friend. The cabin was spotless and smelled delightful. Kudos to the housekeeper for doing such a great job! Every detail of the cabin was in perfect condition. The beds were super comfortable and there are plenty of towels, blankets and extra linens available. The kitchen is well appointed with plenty of dishes, cookware, utensils and flatware. The girls (12-years-old) loved the hot tub and spent a lot of time on the back porch in the evenings. The drive up to the cabin is quite steep and the road is narrow, but easily navigated with a bit of care. I have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over the years and I have to say that April and Dave are the best and most responsive owners I have come across. Any question I had was answered and addressed immediately.

If you're looking for a vacation rental in the Gatlinburg area, I would highly recommend Fireflies & Moonshine cabin. There's a Food City and gas station about a mile from the property and downtown Gatlinburg is only about 3.5 miles. Plenty of restaurants nearby, of all varieties. The Arts & Crafts loop is also only a mile away from the entrance to the property. Easy in and out access to everything.

Thank you, April and Dave, for sharing your lovely cabin with us and helping to make our vacation comfortable and memorable!

PERFECT Mother's Day getaway!

April & Dave's cabin was PERFECT for our Mother's Day weekend getaway. The pictures do not do the cabin justice. It is so creatively decorated and is very cozy. It is secluded away enough from the busy downtown area but just a short drive. Hot tub was a great plus. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals. I would definitely stay here again :)

Wonderful and warm cabin!

This wonderful and warm cabin is exactly what you need in the Smokies! Super communication with owners, who provide all the info you need in advance and code the door--so keyless--just perfect for coming and going to the Gatlinburg sites. Delighted to find 2 fireplaces that took the chill off in minutes. Also, so nice to have sufficient lamps for reading and separate spaces, the back enclosed porch area superb for relaxing separately from the main areas. Super fast Wi-Fi!. Great information notebook. Comfortable for 3 gals and would be as well for 2 couples or a family of 6---Futon big and comfortable and 2 big bedrooms and nice sized baths. Didn't have a chance to use the big whirlpool tub but will next time. Kitchen has everything you need to make meals. Hot tub lovely. Really cant say enough. Grocery store a mile away, many hiking trails a short drive away. We did Elkmont. Neighbors lovely. We will be back for sure. Gatlinburg has had damage in some parts but the town and businesses are all back for sure. It was a great 4 days in the Smokies. Hosts April and Dave super accommodating to us.

Comfortable and Relaxing

The cabin where we stayed was Fireflies and Moonshine. It was very well furnished and decorated for the holidays. It is in a very nice resort. Just the right distance from town. This was our first time to stay in a cabin but it will not be the last. Very enjoyable and comfortable.

Clean and Cozy!

The place was absolutely nice! Very quite neighborhood. The place was clean and very cozy! My mother really enjoyed herself and this was her first stay in a cabin. She is ready to stay again. April and Dave checked on us and even sent me a link for wheel chair rental in the local area. Communication was great! They get an A+

Thanksgiving in the Smokies!

Location was great; not too far away from Gatlinburg, not too close. The close proximity of the neighbors made for some long nights as they were not very quiet. The cabin was clean and well stocked. We were able to make a Thanksgiving dinner with the dishes and appliances in the cabin. We would stay again!

Comfortable and relaxing

Plenty of room for our family of five. Clean and lots of comfortable seating, enjoyed the hot tub at the end of every day. Great communication with the owners. Grocery shopping close by. Within reasonable driving distance of the park and local points of interest

Justine's review


Clean cabin

Cabin was very pretty and clean. We were glad they had a pack-n-play there for the baby to sleep so we didn't have to bring that from home. The hosts are very kind and responsive. We had some AC issues that they worked hard to get resolved. The pool was clean and fun! We did not use the hot tub but it was also very clean looking. One note is that the cabin walls are very thin so it's easy to hear noises outside and inside the house. There are other cabins on either side and across the street in the subdivision. This was a little troublesome for us because we had two kids under 3 and we had to be really quiet after they went to bed. I think this would be a better place when the kids are a little older or to go to with friends. But overall it was a beautiful cabin with a perfect location to easily get to the park, aquarium and arcades.

Awesome family vacation!

Family vacation in the Smokies and this cabin was perfect for us. It was bigger than I expected and the newly finished deck and hot tub are awesome! Dave and April were very easy to get in touch with and quick to respond answering all of our questions before, during, and after our stay - my wife loved the sheets so I had to ask what brand/style they were when we got back home. The space is comfortable and we had everything we needed.

Matt's review


Cozy and Comfortable!

The cabin is cozy and comfortable, feels like you are in the woods but really close to every activity you can imagine! We could do everything from hiking and rafting in the smokies to riding in a roller coaster! All the kitchen equipment was provided, plenty of linens, toilet paper, washing machine and dishwasher liquid too. And starting with our visit they now have a nice private hot tub! Dave was great at communicating, even checking up on us as we were driving in, and any question I had was immediately answered. There is a small pool within walking distance that is great for kids that need to cool off after a long day of hiking. Can't say enough great things about this cabin!

Fireflies & Moonshine cabin great place to stay!

Loved staying at Fireflies & Moonshine cabin! The cabin was clean, kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and cooking utensils. Back of cabin overlooks woods and has beautiful views. Not only did April provided us with information on shopping areas, grocery store location, and tourist attractions in the area, she was very quick at getting back to us.

We had 4 adults staying in the cabin and the sleeping areas were comfortable. Pool was just steps away. It is shared by everyone in the community so it was busy at times. The grill is located in a different area of the 2 communities and you must drive to get to it but once you are there, picnic area clean and it offers overhead lighting. (Take your charcoal) The playground and basketball hoop are also located there.

Deck is built and overlooks the woods. Only access to the deck is through the house which prevents bears from visiting! Once the hot tub is installed, more fun times await! Stay here and you will not be disappointed!
