Andrews Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come for a lovely, quiet vacation in the beautiful NC Smokey mountains. A beautiful cabin awaits you. Relaxation at its' best! Read on!

Looking for all the amenities and beauty of a mountain cabin without having to drive on dirt roads and be isolated? Moose Crossing Cabin is the place for you! Just minutes from quiet, quaint 'downtown' Andrews, this cabin is beautifully decorated for your comfort and privacy. Situated on a quiet, residential street high above the town, the cabin's front porch view is of the gorgeous northern mountains across the valley. Side porch overlooks a garden area with flowers (seasonally!) and bird feeders. Covered porches with rocking chairs, dining table & arm chairs for your comfort no matter the weather. A 10' X 18' open deck is on the back of the cabin with charcoal grill, chaise lounge, table, umbrella and four chairs, two faux wicker arm chairs. Cabin backs up to Leatherwood mountain, a beautifully forested and undeveloped area.

Ideally suited for two persons, bedroom features queen bed, firm mattress and 'faux' featherbed for the ultimate night's sleep. Room darkening drapes and wooden blinds. Robes provided for your comfort. Window A/C, ceiling paddle fan. Additional entrance door from side porch. All linens provided. You will find your bed made with ironed luxurious sheets! If needed, the LR sofa is loveseat-size sofa bed. A twin size fold-out bed with mattress and featherbed is also available. Cabin is small and designed with two person occupancy in mind.

Kitchen is small, located within the living room but fully equipped with everything you could possibly want. Upon arrival you will find your refrigerator stocked with breakfast items! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate mix, creamer, sugar, sweeteners, orange juice, milk, cereals, fresh fruit, jelly, English muffins, fresh eggs, waffles, pancakes, pure maple syrup, pre-cooked bacon, sausage, butter and spreads! Arrive ready to relax without worrying about grocery shopping for the morning! Definitely not your ordinary rental cabin!

Living room features cathedral ceiling, ceiling paddle fan/light, window A/C, French doors looking out onto your front porch and the mountains across the valley. Curtains swing away from the doors for a mountain view from inside. A very comfortable sofa and a Lane rocker-recliner. 32' flat screen TV located on the fireplace mantle. Free secure wireless internet access! You won't find that amenity in another local rental! All necessary items for fireplace are provided; dry wood, starters, kindling, matches, etc. Please see website for more photos and information!

Your hostess resides in the small home located in front and to the side of Moose Crossing Cabin. Cabin has private driveway. I assure you your privacy! However, I am available should a guest have a question, concern or want additional information regarding local sights. Some renters feel more secure knowing someone is available nearby should an emergency or unusual event occur. I am CPR certified and have over 40 years experience in the medical field.

About The Owner

Originally, I'm from Connecticut. During the 80's I lived in Andrews up in a 'holler' and never had the gorgeous view I now enjoy. I then relocated to FL for 15 years and in 1999 decided I had to have another home in Andrews. I purchased 'this old house' and have had extensive improvements done. The 'Moose' was originally a single room over the workshop. I designed and decorated the cabin as it now exists and enjoyed watching it being built in 2007. The view of the northern mountains is breath-taking! I have thoroughly enjoyed all the comments from my guests, many of whom have become my friends.

I work full-time as Radiology Director in a hospital in GA and am away from my home at least ten hours a day. My guests have total privacy, but like knowing I am here in the evenings should they have a problem or question. I have two 'inside' dogs who were hard-luck stories but have adapted to being spoiled house-dogs very quickly!

I have traveled extensively throughout the USA as well as foreign countries and have never found a more beautiful place to live than right here in Andrews, NC.

We have stayed twice during the fall months including the Thanksgiving Holidays. The first time we went, we were wondering what the catch was going to be as everything just seemed to be too good to be true. A motel room cost way more that this cabin. Well, I won't repeat everything in the other reviews, but to say that every one on them was correct. We've stayed in other VRBO rentals but this one's amenities beat all the others by far. Wonderful mountain views while relaxing on the porches and even resting in the recliner in living room looking out the window. Our little Yorkie loved to run and play on the porches. Ms. Pat even provided everything our Maggie needed like feeding bowls, blankets, and even provider her with a bag of treats. We are big Alabama football fans, so Saturdays in the fall are spent in front of the TV enjoying all the games that day. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and the firewood was even furnished. Wow! I enjoyed the nearby casino a few hours most days. We ate out everyday at some very good restaurants like Doyle's, The Chophouse, and Rib Country in nearby Murphy. There is lots to see nearby but so far we haven't ventured out yet. Just love this peaceful retreat at the Moose Crossing Cabin. Will definitely will be calling to make another reservation soon. Would love to see some snow.

Awesome cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my!!!! Where do I start???? Have you heard the saying "the hostess with the mostest"? Well, that would most definitely describe Pat. My 87 y/o mother, my best friend and I stayed here for 3 nights last week. It was awesome! The cabin is adorable and plenty of room for the 3 of us. It was stocked with everything you could possibly need, down to a heating pad. It was just like being at home. The fridge was stocked with enough breakfast food to last a way we could eat that much. The bed was soooo comfortable. Pat made sure we had everything we needed....such a gracious hostess! Just hate that we were out sightseeing so much we really didn't get to visit with her that much. Neighbors were very friendly!!! Can't wait to go back!!!!

Adorable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week and were very comfortable here. This cabin is stocked with everything you can imagine to make your stay very comfortable. We were amazed at how much food was in the fridge for breakfast. Believe me, the owners didn't leave anything out!

The bed is extremely comfortable. My only problem was that with my short legs, I had to use a foot stool to climb into bed because of the very comfortable mattress topper on the bed. Yes, even a foot stool was in the laundry room!

Pat and her husband were so accommodating. They knew my husband has an artificial leg and they were right there when we arrived and took all of our stuff up the stairs for us! They even helped us turn our trailer around by hand and push it up the driveway and under the carport.

You can't ask for nicer, friendlier, and sweeter people than Patrick and Pat!

We would definitely come back here again!

WOW unfortunately I can only give 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

I have spent some time traveling-motels, VRBO properties, private rentals etc. This was one of the very best experiences if not the best.

The dwelling itself was perfect, stocked with everything needed. Pat herself was so understanding ( I had to cancel and reschedule twice)

The area was central to many of the great riding roads in NC, great scenery and challenging.

I would and will recommend staying here.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days and couldn't have been happier. We have stayed at VRBO rentals before but have never had such a nice home to stay in nor have we been pampered as much as we were at this beautiful cabin. Our hostess was wonderful and the winery down the road was a great place to walk and relax after a long day of riding. The neighbors are very friendly and we loved spending time of the deck. We even loved the small town atmosphere. Just a heads up, being a smaller town, some of the restaurants close earlier than bigger towns. Had a wonderful time and hope to stay there again. Thank you Pat!

5 star*****Fantastic cabin with lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wedding to attend nearby and rented this cabin for 3 days. I was pleasantly surprised at all it came with! The refrigerator was stocked as well as the bathroom was stocked with everything you need in case you forgot something. Pat checked on me daily and made sure I didn't need anything. I felt like it was a home away from home. I was able to relax with my dog which was a definite plus to be able to bring him. Pat even offered to walk him for me if I couldn't be there. The view from the front porch was amazing. She even emailed me to let me know she found two things I left behind and is shipping them to me. I hope to come back and enjoy the mountains when I don't have scheduled activities all weekend. Did get to eat at the Hoppy Trout restaurant and they were very good too. If all VRBO would pattern after these accommodations, I could travel all over! Very satisfied customer!!!!! Highly recommended!!!!!!
