About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come for a lovely, quiet vacation in the beautiful NC Smokey mountains. A beautiful cabin awaits you. Relaxation at its' best! Read on!

Looking for all the amenities and beauty of a mountain cabin without having to drive on dirt roads and be isolated? Moose Crossing Cabin is the place for you! Just minutes from quiet, quaint 'downtown' Andrews, this cabin is beautifully decorated for your comfort and privacy. Situated on a quiet, residential street high above the town, the cabin's front porch view is of the gorgeous northern mountains across the valley. Side porch overlooks a garden area with flowers (seasonally!) and bird feeders. Covered porches with rocking chairs, dining table & arm chairs for your comfort no matter the weather. A 10' X 18' open deck is on the back of the cabin with charcoal grill, chaise lounge, table, umbrella and four chairs, two faux wicker arm chairs. Cabin backs up to Leatherwood mountain, a beautifully forested and undeveloped area.

Ideally suited for two persons, bedroom features queen bed, firm mattress and 'faux' featherbed for the ultimate night's sleep. Room darkening drapes and wooden blinds. Robes provided for your comfort. Window A/C, ceiling paddle fan. Additional entrance door from side porch. All linens provided. You will find your bed made with ironed luxurious sheets! If needed, the LR sofa is loveseat-size sofa bed. A twin size fold-out bed with mattress and featherbed is also available. Cabin is small and designed with two person occupancy in mind.

Kitchen is small, located within the living room but fully equipped with everything you could possibly want. Upon arrival you will find your refrigerator stocked with breakfast items! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate mix, creamer, sugar, sweeteners, orange juice, milk, cereals, fresh fruit, jelly, English muffins, fresh eggs, waffles, pancakes, pure maple syrup, pre-cooked bacon, sausage, butter and spreads! Arrive ready to relax without worrying about grocery shopping for the morning! Definitely not your ordinary rental cabin!

Living room features cathedral ceiling, ceiling paddle fan/light, window A/C, French doors looking out onto your front porch and the mountains across the valley. Curtains swing away from the doors for a mountain view from inside. A very comfortable sofa and a Lane rocker-recliner. 32' flat screen TV located on the fireplace mantle. Free secure wireless internet access! You won't find that amenity in another local rental! All necessary items for fireplace are provided; dry wood, starters, kindling, matches, etc. Please see website for more photos and information!

Your hostess resides in the small home located in front and to the side of Moose Crossing Cabin. Cabin has private driveway. I assure you your privacy! However, I am available should a guest have a question, concern or want additional information regarding local sights. Some renters feel more secure knowing someone is available nearby should an emergency or unusual event occur. I am CPR certified and have over 40 years experience in the medical field.

About The Owner

Originally, I'm from Connecticut. During the 80's I lived in Andrews up in a 'holler' and never had the gorgeous view I now enjoy. I then relocated to FL for 15 years and in 1999 decided I had to have another home in Andrews. I purchased 'this old house' and have had extensive improvements done. The 'Moose' was originally a single room over the workshop. I designed and decorated the cabin as it now exists and enjoyed watching it being built in 2007. The view of the northern mountains is breath-taking! I have thoroughly enjoyed all the comments from my guests, many of whom have become my friends.

I work full-time as Radiology Director in a hospital in GA and am away from my home at least ten hours a day. My guests have total privacy, but like knowing I am here in the evenings should they have a problem or question. I have two 'inside' dogs who were hard-luck stories but have adapted to being spoiled house-dogs very quickly!

I have traveled extensively throughout the USA as well as foreign countries and have never found a more beautiful place to live than right here in Andrews, NC.

Cozy Cabin With a Great View

This little place is exactly what we were looking for. The description and other reviews are spot on. Mrs. Pat was fantastic. She has literally thought of everything! Can't wait to go back in the future.

Five stars isn't enough!! Look no further, this is the best rental on VRBO

  • 5 of 5

I could tell you how cozy this cabin is or how beautiful the views are but quite honestly isn't that what you expect to read in a review of a cabin located in the mountains of North Carolina? What sets this property apart from all of the other hundreds and hundreds of listings isn't just the cabin or the views, while they are incredible, the cabin owner is the gem of this property. No detail has been overlooked. The refrigerator stocked with anything you could possibly need to cook a scrumptious breakfast, toiletries in the bathroom just in case you've forgotten something, a welcome note when you arrive, suggestions on where to go, dog bowls and dog blankets in the closet, I could go on for days! Staying as a guest in this cabin is a treat, honestly. If you are considering a trip to the area there is no place better to stay than Moose Crossing. Make no mistake, the cabin is beautiful and perfect but there is so much more!

We have stayed twice during the fall months including the Thanksgiving Holidays. The first time we went, we were wondering what the catch was going to be as everything just seemed to be too good to be true. A motel room cost way more that this cabin. Well, I won't repeat everything in the other reviews, but to say that every one on them was correct. We've stayed in other VRBO rentals but this one's amenities beat all the others by far. Wonderful mountain views while relaxing on the porches and even resting in the recliner in living room looking out the window. Our little Yorkie loved to run and play on the porches. Ms. Pat even provided everything our Maggie needed like feeding bowls, blankets, and even provider her with a bag of treats. We are big Alabama football fans, so Saturdays in the fall are spent in front of the TV enjoying all the games that day. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and the firewood was even furnished. Wow! I enjoyed the nearby casino a few hours most days. We ate out everyday at some very good restaurants like Doyle's, The Chophouse, and Rib Country in nearby Murphy. There is lots to see nearby but so far we haven't ventured out yet. Just love this peaceful retreat at the Moose Crossing Cabin. Will definitely will be calling to make another reservation soon. Would love to see some snow.
