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 East

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.

Nice cabin close to park and town. Don't pass this one up.

  • 5 of 5

Geri was great to work with. We booked a last minute getaway for the weekend. She responded quickly with the right information. She even included area information we talked about. The cabin is great. Everything was clean and in working order. After spending the day in the mountains and horseback riding, the hot tub was a nice finish to the day. It's close to the entrance to the park and maybe 5 mins into town. Hopefully the owl will be there for your visit.

Thanks Geri for a great stay!

A Great relaxing Birthday!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife booked us to stay for my birthday. We were suppose to arrive in the 7th but the area got hit with 8" of snow. If you have ever stayed at a cabin in this area then you know that with that much snow, you are not getting in!!! Geri was wonderful to work with!! As it happened she did not have the cabin booked at the end of our booking so she let us wait until the 9th to check in. The cabin was perfect for the two of us and our Cocker Spanials Speckles & Fancy!!! Everything you need is provided all the kitchen appliances worked well and the cabin was really cozy. We enjoyed just setting back the first 2 days and watching the snow melt. The cabin was well maintained and my wife loved the furnishings. Geri is a wonderful lady to work with and without a doubt wants to make your stay is memorable!! Thank You Geri!!! A side note to future renters ---Please keep in mind these homes are how many people make a living and support themselves. Please threat the property with the care and respect you would your on home!!! If you treat your home like crap, stay in a tent!!!
