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.

Very Quiet & Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very nicely decorated, cozy and very quiet. We loved the location easy access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Easy to book and Geri the owner provides everything you will need regarding instructions as well as plenty of items in the kitchen. Loved the floor plan and having 2 porches to sit and read or use of a hot tub and gas grill. Just loved it. Thanks Geri for allowing us to stay at your cabin.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Came up for the weekend with our son and my parents and enjoyed our stay at the Chocolate Moose. Cabin was nice and cozy and a good fit for us all to stay. When got there the light above the loft/pool table area was out which made it a little hard to see so we called the owner to let her know. She had someone go immediately to look for a new bulb in town but unfortunately they have to be ordered, so she brought back 2 lamps to add plenty of light for us. They responded ASAP and by the time we got back from dinner they had a solution to that small issue. Overall good stay and will try and get back soon.

Perfect Retreat in the TN Mountains

  • 5 of 5

While our week was cut short due to a family emergency, the time we spent at Chocolate Moose Cabin with all three of our pups was the perfect remedy for work overload. A light dusting of snow made the surrounding area a beautiful winter wonderland, while the cabin was a warm, welcoming place to relax. Everything we needed was provided, even extra dog dishes! We can definitely recommend Chocolate Moose Cabin, if you are looking for a Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg get-a-way.

Chocolate Moose

  • 5 of 5

Chocolate Moose was charming, clean, comfortable and cozy. It was close to town and had all the charm of a cabin in the mountains. We rented it at the last minute for Christmas. A perfect way to spend the holiday. Geri was gracious and wonderful to work with us to be able to obtain the cabin for Christmas. I would highly recommend this cabin for a quiet getaway. I would also recommend working with Geri.
