Only 14 miles away from Ducktown TN and the famous Ocoee whitewater rafting center, you are literally surrounded by vineyards, Orchards, hiking trails, biking, boating and the GREAT shopping and dining of Blue Ridge!

Perfect for a romantic get-away for one, two or three couples (did I mention the wineries??), or an extended family, Moosemac features a grand dining table for 8 guests! You will leave NOTHING to be desired as Moosemac is a second home to its owners and is NOT a bare basic cabin in the woods!

About Chris Marriott

Chris & Candice have been exploring the Blue Ridge area for years. Avid kayakers, adventurers, campers and white water rafters, they fell in love with the town of Blue Ridge, its fall festivals, wineries and AMAZING hiking and rafting that are literally just outside their door. Set on a ridgeline of luxury cabins, Moosemac Cabin was already an extremely successful rental cabin that Chris & Candice jumped at the opportunity to make their own! The origin of the name comes from prior owners who built the cabin, but suits Chris' Canadian roots and love of the wild! Chris & Candice are adding their personal touch to every guest who comes to Moosemac so that your first experience will certainly not be your last! Committed to "Not just owning a rental property", Chris and Candice have made extensive enhancements in 2016 and will be making more improvements in the upcoming years to build their dream home that they will be proud to share with their guests for years to come!

Chris Marriott purchased this Cabin in 2016

                                                                  Hey Beth,

                                                                  I take all feedback seriously and was quite shocked to to see your 3 star review for your stay and experience at our cabin...As an owner, I believe that a rating should accurately reflect the entire experience of your stay at a property, not just a small number of cleaning omissions. I immediately sent out a cleaner to try and remedy the areas of concern and I am very sorry it was not fully addressed. I stand by my prior 52 straight 5 Star reviews for the ""Total 5 Star" experience that Moosemac offers and will strive to improve with all feedback that I receive.

                                                                  Chris

                                                                  This is the one!

                                                                  Angela H.

                                                                  We couldn't have been happier with our stay at MooseMac cabin. Every detail was thought of in advance. The owner was incredibly easy to work with and had great communication. There were detailed instructions for our arrival and directions. Once we arrived, the cabin was even more breathtaking than the pictures. The view is amazing and such a peaceful getaway. We wound up not even leaving once the entire weekend. We had everything we needed for a relaxing retreat at our fingertips. Five star stay!

                                                                  AMAZING!!!!

                                                                  Michael M.

                                                                  My family and I rent a cabin every year in January to celebrate a belated Christmas. This was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The owner was hands-on throughout the entire rental process and keeps the house completely stocked. It is even better than all of the reviews. We will definitely be back again!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks Michael!

                                                                  Your feedback you gave was very useful and we have jumped on your recommendations, so look for them on you next trip up!! Thanks for the ever so kind words - we truly want to offer a cabin that leaves NOTHING wanted for every families trip to the Blue Ridge area!

                                                                  Chris

Talk about making the best of a wild situation! Thanks for hanging in there and enjoying the cabin under those trying circumstances!! The game chest, solar lights and flashlights never got such a workout!! Hope to see you back....with no snow next time! Let's plan for a summer rafting trip!! :)

                                                                  I would highly recommend!! the owners were absolutely amazing! They were very responsive to our questions before and during our stay. If I could rate more than 5 stars I would.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
