About the property

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.

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I immensely enjoyed our stay at the Moose Crossing Cabin. The view of the mountains from the front porch is beautiful and the cabin is a wonderful place to relax. The bed had high quality sheets and it was very comfortable.

We have never stayed at a rental home that was as well-equipped as Pat's cabin. Pat went beyond our expectations by providing breakfast foods, dog treats for our dogs, and other unexpected things. We felt refreshed and rejuvenated after our stay there. We loved the town of Andrews and the highlight of our getaway was hiking the trail at Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. I highly recommend Pat's cabin and think nature lovers will love the entire area. Thank you, Pat, for going the extra mile to provide such a relaxing retreat!

This was a truly awesome little cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pat, we really enjoyed our stay.

You were right when you said that all we needed to bring were our clothes. To any who are thinking of staying here, do give it a try. Pat furnishes anything you would need whether you are going to explore this part of North Carolina or you just want a quiet place to sit and relax for a few days.

Saying that the cabin backs up to a mountain does not do this justice as you can sit on the back deck and see nothing but trees and hear nothing but songbirds.

Thank you again for your hospitality. We could not have asked for a better home for our four days there and while we had high hopes for the cabin after reading other reviews, you exceeded our expectations.

Such a quaint little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous stay at Moose Crossing! Pat has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable, including a fully-stocked refrigerator of breakfast items. The cabin is just as described, and Pat is such a gracious and welcoming host. Would definitely recommend Moose Crossing to anyone looking for a cozy getaway in the mountains!

Very cozy

The cabin was perfect for a weekend trip to finalize plans for building our own cabin. Very well stocked with supplies and even generous amount of groceries.
