The abundance of fireflies in the surrounding woods at DogWoods Retreat inspired the name of Firefly cabin. In addition we also have the privilege of being able to witness the blue-ghost fireflies who have made their home here. Prime viewing time being mid-May to mid-June. Our area is one of the last remaining habitats that accommodate them. Unlike common fireflies, the male blue ghost firefly emits a continuous bio-luminescent bluish-green light which appear as moving orbs throughout the woods. They may be spotted along the road ways and creek here at DogWoods Retreat!
