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.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

It was very relaxing. The street to cabin was pretty steep but otherwise it was a nice cabin.

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and clean. Moose decor was very cute. It was quite and somewhat isolated which we loved. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was the pull out sofa. There was absolutely no cushion at all. No worries though. We went into town and bought a memory foam mattress pad that my daughter will use on her dorm room bed. I would definitely recommend the cabin and will plan to stay again. Thanks for helping make our get away relaxing.

Great place

We just loved our time at this cabin. Felt very remote but very close to town. So close they delivered pizza in no time. The dog loved it too! Will stay again.

Perfect cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Geri was great to book with. Quick response and so friendly. The cabin is adorable. It's a perfect cozy cabin for a couple or small family. My son loved having the loft area to himself with all of the games and the kitchen had everything you could need (including bowls for our four-legged friends). It is secluded and quiet... but be prepared for that winding mountain road! What else would you expect though in the Smokies?! In all the times that we've visited the area, this cabin is probably the one with the best location. Just a few minutes into Gatlinburg and a few minutes into Pigeon Forge. You can't beat it!
