About Geri McBride

As a child, I can remember all the good times that we had when my Daddy would take us to the Smokies every year. I always had the dream that one day I would love to own a log cabin there and I would make it a 'very special warm & cozy home-away-from-home' and that is what I have done with the Chocolate Moose. I have always loved animals and they have always been a big part of my life, so I also wanted to make a special place that guests could come with their favorite furry doggy friends like I do when I go there. My favorite traveling buddy is Dusty, pictured here, We LOVE going to our special 'home-away-from-home often and hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do.

Geri McBride purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Geri McBride chose Sevierville

Before I bought this cabin, I searched and searched for the perfect location and one with a yard and paved driveway and one that was close to the main 'drag'(Hwy 441) because so many that I looked at only had a small parking space just barely large enough to get a car off of the road (sometimes gravel road) and so many of them were hard to get to and too far out from all the activities. I was looking for one that was convenient to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The Chocolate Moose is located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and only 2 miles off the main 'drag' (Hwy 441) where all the action is, but is semi-secluded and offers lots of privacy. It was exactly what I was looking for and with a name like 'CHOCOLATE MOOSE' how could I not fall in love with it at first sight. I have decorated it for the past years with moose, moose and more moose and think that it is just simply the 'cutest and coziest cabin' in the Smokys. I know you will love the Chocolate Moose and will not soon forget it after your visit.

What makes this cabin unique

The CHOCOLATE MOOSE offers an easy-to-get-to location between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and a wide paved drive with plenty of off-the-road parking and a private yard. It has a large PRIVATE deck off the bedroom with a hot tub, wrought iron table & chairs, gas grill. It also has a covered front porch with rocking chairs, porch swing and a breakfast table & chairs perfect for morning coffee & fresh mountain air before starting your day. It has a loft game room with pool table & electronic dart board, toys & games. There is a jetted whirlpool tub in the bedroom with a super king log canopy bed. The bathroom has 2 doors, 1 opening into the master bedroom and the other opens into the kitchen/living areas for maximum privacy. The bath has a shower/tub combination. With all the extras, coziness, luxuries and cute moose decor, I KNOW YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED and will love it as much as Dusty and I do.

Such a Cozy Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. This was our first time traveling with our new dog and she seemed to love the cabin as well. There is just enough yard space in front of the cabin for dogs to take care of their business and plenty of lights for when you have to take them out at night. I also appreciated the gate on the front deck area to prevent any doggy escapes. While this cabin is up in the mountains, it was fairly easy to find and not a long drive back to either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. There are neighbors around but you're in the woods so you don't really notice them. We had an fun time sitting on the deck and hearing the turkeys calling to each other. The kitchen was well equipped and the cabin was clean. As a family we've stayed in a lot of cabins in the area, usually at least twice a year, and there hasn't been a lot that have inspired us to stay a second time, but Chocolate Moose is a cabin we will return to. Thanks Geri for sharing your mountain retreat with us. A bonus, the moose decor is so cute and the cabin has a great layout for a small family.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely cabin for our anniversary. Enjoyed hanging out in the hot tub sipping champagne. Perfect for 2 people and my baby girl (Macy Mae) our boxer. She loved it too. The squirrels would run across the covered deck unto the deck railings and crack open their acorns. Nature at it's best. My dog watched with excitement. It was nice hearing the acorns fall on the tin roof. We awoke to the rain hitting the tin roof on Sunday morning. PERFECT WEEKEND.

DEFINITELY " NOT " RECOMMENDED !

  • 1 of 5

Cabin is surrounded by woods so I expected a few bugs and/or spiders, but to have them all on the inside was a bit too much. There were spiderwebs everywhere so it's obvious that housekeeping only cleaned what they thought they could get by with. Very cluttered unit which helps to draw the bugs and insects. Would definitely absolutely not recommend staying here, I travel to the area at least twice a year and this is the first time I've ever stayed away from where I normally stay, won't make that mistake again.

Great cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, peaceful cabin in the woods. Enjoyed our stay at Chocolate Moose. Great that it was pet friendly. The porch was a great place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the mountain. Would love to return sometime when we are not running from a hurricane, (Hurricane Irma)
