With 4 bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and a private bathroom, The Moose Is Loose can accommodate several couples vacationing together as comfortably as it can a family (or even 2 families). Throw in an outdoor hot tub with a view of the Smoky Mountains, air-hockey and pool tables, and a location just 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, and you have the makings of a perfect getaway.
Of the 4 bedrooms, 2 are on the main floor and 2 are upstairs. In addition to a lofty king-size bed and a bathroom, each bedroom has its own TV and plenty of storage. Two of the bathrooms include a luxurious extra: a jetted tub. After a day of hiking, biking, or whitewater rafting, a pampering soak will have your muscles feeling as good as new. And if you have additional guests, one of cabin’s sofas opens into a queen-size bed, enabling The Moose Is Loose to sleep up to 10 people in total.
The Moose Is Loose is much more than a place to sleep, however. Spacious and handsomely furnished, it’s also a convivial retreat for making memories with family and friends. The great room is large enough for everyone to gather together, whether it’s to watch TV, play charades, or reminisce by the stone-surround fireplace over après-ski drinks. The oversize windows and double-height ceiling give it an open, inviting ambience, while the lustrous wood-planked walls and floor add a warm, cozy vibe.
The dining table is large enough to seat 8 with ease; you won’t be jostling elbows and knocking knees here. The adjacent breakfast bar can seat 4 more should you have company—or if the kids want to eat “on their own” while the adults linger over a more leisurely meal at the table. The kitchen is equipped with a full array of appliances, cookware, and tableware, plus a wealth of gleaming counter space. It’s also large enough that several people can help with cooking and cleanup—and the dishwasher will make the latter a cinch. There’s also a charcoal grill outside, should you have a hankering for barbecue.
Speaking of outside, The Moose Is Loose has a huge deck that looks out over woodlands to the Smoky Mountains. It’s furnished with enough chairs and rockers so that everyone can relish the fresh air, the sight of falcons soaring over the mountains, and the sounds of warblers in the morning and whip-poor-wills at night. Also on the deck is a hot tub. While a leisurely soak among its massaging jets of water is a delight any time, it’s especially magical at night, beneath the canopy of stars.
You’ll find additional entertainment options back inside. The loft’s game room hosts an eye-catching log-frame pool table and an air-hockey table. The cabin’s 6th TV is up there as well, along with a pair of leather couches ideal for stretching out on with a good book or for a good nap.
The Moose Is Loose is located just off the 8-mile Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. If you love art galleries, crafts studios, and shops selling everything from quilts to candles, you’ll have more than 120 to choose from, just outside your door. The cabin is also only 15 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Just as close is downtown Gatlinburg, home to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, mini golf, arcades, the Anakeesta outdoor attraction, and a tram that carries you over the town to Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. What’s more, Dollywood and other popular Pigeon Forge attractions are less than a half-hour away.
No matter how you choose to spend your days, you’ll love spending time with your nearest and dearest at The Moose Is Loose. So book your stay today (before someone else beats you to it!). We look forward to seeing you soon!
