Your Magical Mountain Memories are just a stay away...

As you drive to the Nantahala Gorge, you will experience a true vacation feeling! From the moment you see the Majestic Long Range Mountain Views from the Cabin, you are sure to be captivated...
Inside the cabin there are wood floors, pine tongue and groove walls and a complete wall of glass w/ floor to ceiling windows to take in the Majestic Mountain Views from every room in the Cabin. The Living Room focal point is the floor to ceiling Native Stone Fireplace
Enjoy the Long Range Mountain Views while you cuddle up in front of the Fireplace, or enjoy the Plush Cotton Bathrobes after a soak in the Sparkling Hot tub filled with Fresh Spring water.
The stainless & granite kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to cook at 'home' - and on the deck, a BBQ Grill (Grilling has never been so View-licious). For those of you that enjoy hydro-therapy, there is a jetted tub in the downstairs bathroom.
Bring the S'mores fixins and brush up on your favorite Campfire stories. Gathering around the FirePit is always an end of the day favorite!

The living room offers an even larger (55") flat screen TV (each bedroom offers flat screen TV's equipped with satellite stations as well). Enjoy your meals gathered around a beautiful rustic/modern teak dining table, with a Cabin/Forest dish ware set, and more... "Mountain Magic" offers several unique and updated amenities: a Sparkling Fresh Hot Tub (with waterfall feature and even more Jets than before), Comfortable Luxurious Leather living room furniture, a fabulous King Bed upstairs - with "sleep number technology" that offers dual controls (The Queen bed downstairs was upgraded with a new mattress and memory foam topper - which is the right combination of support with a soft overlay).
As always, the beds are prepared with Luxury linens and high quality Bedding.

Exciting Announcement: As of June 2023 there are many upgrades at "Mountain Magic"! We currently have New Internet service (BalsamWest Internet Provider is the Best, Fastest, and Use is Unlimited), a designated work space with a desk, chair, computer monitor and a wireless keyboard, new gorgeous leather living room furniture, new rugs, freshly painted/stained exterior, new ceiling fans, updates to both bathrooms, freshly paved road all the way to the cabin, and more...
Short Recap:
There are a total of (3) Flat-screen TV's (each with an extensive satellite channel selection), an assortment of card/board games, and an Air Hockey Table!
Currently offering complimentary and unlimited WiFi to our Guests.
The N.O.C. is just 5 minutes up the road and it is one of the main reasons both Good Morning America and National Geographic voted this area #1 Vacation with a Splash'!
There are 7-8 restaurants within 10 minutes from casual to fine dining!
The Tsali (for hiking and biking trails) and Fontana Lake are within 10 minutes.
Bryson City (shopping, dining, the scenic train depot and more) are within 15-20 minutes.

We are available to assist you, and offer a few optional convenience services:

... Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.
... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax.
... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance. Lake Fontana and the shore line is primarily Nantahala National Forest, or is part of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

Over 50 acres of Green Space at the Cabin: There are 50 acres of hiking trails just out of the front door. While hiking these trails you will encounter several ponds, the largest is spring fed and is full of fish! There are Bass, Brim, Catfish, and More...
There is a hand drawn map inside the welcome book to show some of the trails.

Mountain Magic is the perfect place to make your own Magical Mountain Memories!

Cancellation Policy

Our Cancellation Policy "In a nutshell": 
​Each cabin is individually Owned and typically is the only property the specific Owner has to offer for rent. When a Guest occupies time on this Owner's calendar, then has to cancel the reservation, the property may remain empty. Although we empathize with your emergency, it really is not fair to "transfer" your financial hardship to the property Owner.
* Travelers/Cancellation Insurance will be offered at the time you reserve the cabin. If cancelling or encountering an unfortunate emergency  is a concern for you, We highly recommend you purchase this Insurance. Travelers Insurance is a "per reservation" policy, not a "per person" policy, and covers much more than just cancellations. To learn more now, go to itravelinsured. The cost is approximately 6.95% of the total.

FULL REFUND - Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
50% REFUND - Cancellations with over 30 days Notice (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
Cancellations that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, or changes that result in a shortened stay, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, however, Credit will be Offered to Guests in good standing, for cancelled dates that are re-rented. 

COVID-19 PROVISION: In the event Swain County would implement Travel Restrictions, or Closes Short Term Rentals, we will offer to reschedule reservations to within 1 year. Modification/Change Fee will be waived. Covid-19 Cleaning Policies and Procedures will be emailed to all Guests, prior to arrival. *Cleaning Products are EPA Regulated *Cleaning Procedures are per CDC Guidelines.

Deposit Policy

50% is Paid at the time of reserving the cabin. Balance is paid 60 days prior to check in. (To request an exception/alternate payment arrangement, please contact us).
Details available at ncmountains.net/rental-rules/
***Book 6 nights and the 7th night is Free! NOTE: For reservations of 2 weeks or more, mid-stay Cleaning will need to be added at a discounted rate.

Rate varies due to seasonality and holidays. Please select your dates on our online booking calendar for an itemized quote.

"Beautiful"

by Nicole

02/27/2024

Kathleen’s cabin was beautiful. It was peaceful sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs listening to nature while looking at the mountains. Very clean!!!! We loved the robes. Definitely a personal touch. And the house had everything you would need in case you forgot something at home. Lots of games to play with family too.

Ohh and the best part was the bed! Omg it was super comfortable and had me snoring in minutes. The one upstairs was a sleep number bed.

Definitely can’t wait to come back!

"Unreal stars"

by Sarah

01/27/2024

Amazing spot, it was perfect for a restful weekend, we had at home massages and enjoyed grilling on the porch by the fire and hot tub. The stars from the house at night are unreal!

Just what we were looking for

"Great"

by Kira

Great place with beautiful view’s!

"Clean and Cozy"

by Megan

10/13/2023

Mountain magic was the perfect getaway. The house was everything and more for our weeklong getaway. It was extremely clean and so cozy. It was exactly as expected. It was the perfect location for trips into the smokies and Bryson city. The only somewhat downside is that the house location isn’t super walkable. I have a 2 year old lab with lots of energy so walking him up and down the hill was tough, but otherwise zero complaints. For those staying in the fall and winter I highly recommend bringing a flashlight (and not relying on cell phone flashlights. It’s VERY dark!). Would definitely come back for another lovely mountain getaway!

"Great time"

Had an great time the view was Amazing and cabin fit the description!

"Peaceful and Private"

by Aaron

Magic Mountain was a great cabin, that was in a great location. It was everything that was described and more. Very peaceful, private and great mountain views!!

"Magical Mountain"

by Deborah

09/01/2023

This is a beautiful property! The view is amazing and it is equipped with everything you need. Driving in and out was easy and while the road was narrow there are two reflective mirrors on the blind curves. We hiked, tubed, shopped and rented a pontoon boat for 2 days from Fontana Boat rentals. We will be coming back next year!

"Great view and quick access to NOC"

by Brent

08/17/2023

We loved our stay at the cabin. It provides beautiful long-range views of mountain ranges. I would add to the listing that cell service (at least with Verizon) is very good at this location (that's not the case for many cabins in the area) and the wifi is very good, for those that need to log-on for work stuff. While the driveway is narrow, it is paved, relatively close to the main road, and easy to navigate.

"Great Vacation Spot"

by Katie

07/03/2023

We had a nice time at this cabin. It was clean and comfortable with all the things we would need. The newly black topped road to the cabin was a nice change from the rough gravel road we used at our last location. This was a good location to get to and from a lot of the things we wanted to see or do such as Wesser Bald Fire Tower hike, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, spending time in Bryson City. We would definitely come back

"Truly Magical"

by Catie

06/01/2023

My husband and I enjoyed a much needed getaway at Mountain Magic! The property was everything we expected and more. The views were amazing and well exceeded our expectations. The cabin was clean, comfortable and felt like a home away from home. We loved visiting the shops in downtown Bryson city as well as the NOC. We can't wait to return!

"Beautiful View"

by Iryna

05/30/2023

Everything was perfect! We’ll come back again!

"Spring break 2023"

by Christina

04/17/2023

Mountain magic was exactly what we had in mind for our spring break getaway! The cabin was perfect and you cannot beat those views! It was very clean and cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub almost every day and ended almost every night with an air hockey match! The drive up to the cabin took some getting used to but we were pros by the end of the week. Some nearby activities we enjoyed were gem mining at ruby mine and white water rafting at the NOC. We spent 1 day hiking at deep creek. Highly recommend especially if you have younger kids. It's an easy hike with 3 waterfalls. Bryson City is a beautiful little town and had great restaurants. We would definitely book here again and have already recommended to friends/family!

"Amazing Views"

"Perfect getaway to make memories with our family!"

by Lauren

04/01/2022

This cabin was everything we imagined and more! Great location, clean and cozy, and so perfect for our family of four!

"Clean cabin with nice amenities"

by Cody

03/01/2022

We enjoyed out stay and spent a lot of time at the cabin looking out at the beautiful view from the hot tub. The cabin was very clean and we appreciated the sleep number bed at night, as most cabin beds are not that comfortable. Also, we enjoyed fishing at the pond and caught a couple bass.

The location was close to Bryson City, where we would highly recommend The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad to visitors (first class is worth it!).

Definitely a nice place to relax and get away from our day-to-day!

"Amazing views!"

by Jennifer

03/01/2022

We celebrated our 20th anniversary at this cabin and everything was wonderful. The views are amazing, the kitchen well stocked and clean and the hot tub was relaxing. There are 2 other cabins near this cabin but it remains private. It snowed our last night there and we were able to use the fireplace which made the cabin warm and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again!

Best spot on the hill! The place was amazing. Great views, amenities and space. Highly recommended. If you visit make sure to check out the trails around the neighborhood. Cardinal Coffee has the BEST Chai Tea ever!

Great place to spend the weekend. Awesome view. Clean and updated location. Convenient to local activities. We will return.

You cannot best the location if you are wanting to spend time at the Nantahala Outdoor Center! Great views as well!

"Awesome"

by Jeffery H.

06/01/2020

Great cabin, everything was prefect. Would have no problem going back. Steve was great helping with trash pickup. Was on motorcycles so he made it easier for us. Thanks again!!

by Kailynn

06/01/2020

This place is hands down perfect. The views are breath taking, pictures don’t do justice for just how beautiful this place is. The home was very clean and they add special touches to make you feel at home. The cabin is also well stocked with everything you need to cook and grill! If you love fishing me and my boyfriend loved going to pond close by and we caught about 5 bass a piece! We also enjoyed the welcome book, it helped us plan the perfect weekend! We went white water rafting and enjoyed some local bars and dinning! Bryson city overall is a beautiful place, you get Mountain View’s everywhere you go! I will definitely be booking here again, it is a home away from home!

"Beautiful Place"

by Susan M

Great weekend getaway clean cabin quiet area great hot tub with awesome view and fire pit for making s’mores and relaxing!

"Beautiful mountain side cabin"

by Lisa J.

05/01/2020

Our family came here in May 2020 and have a great time. We went to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and did the zip lining and ducky rentals which was exhilarating. The cabin was perfect. A hot tub was awesome after a rough day on the waters. We hope to be back soon.

by Heather

05/01/2020

Gorgeous views! Awesome amenities with the hot tub and fire pit! Kitchen stocked enough to work. Comfortable beds! We enjoyed lots of quality family time... great selection of DVD’s for a movie night. Had a blast playing fooseball.

"Getaway!"

by Anonymous

03/01/2020

Nice! The robes came in handy for getting in the house after being in the hot tub without the wet bathing suits. Saves your floors!

"Marvelous Mountain Magic"

by Kim W

We tremendously enjoyed this well tended property. Extreme cleanliness, comfortably appointed and very private were its best attributes. We would gladly revisit this welcoming property.

by Chelsea

11/01/2019

Booked the cabin for a surprise night away. It was perfect. We enjoyed the hot tub and the amazing views. Kathleen was very attentive to emails and communicated well. We will definitely be booking here again for our next getaway.

"Mountain Magic"

by Jeffery D

11/01/2019

The cabin and property are as good or better than advertised. Avery nice quiet place with beautiful views. I would recommend arriving before dark as the road up is one lane and pretty curvy. The road is well paved and well kept . We enjoyed our weekend very much, may have to return for a longer stay.

"Wonderful Location for Our Honeymoon Getaway!"

by Elizabeth H

10/01/2019

We had a wonderful stay at "Mountain Magic." It was the perfect location for our honeymoon getaway.The home is very well appointed, with comfortable bedding and cozy linens. It has two fireplaces (one gas, one electric) that add to the coziness. From both the family room and the king size bedroom loft on the second floor, you can see gorgeous vistas of the trees and mountain range (the pictures don't do it justice). The home was very clean and had several small touches we appreciated, such as comfy throw blankets, games and movies for rainy days, and even a Crock Pot for when we wanted to have our chili ready for us after a long day of hiking. The master bath and shower was newly renovated and very clean. While we did not use it, the second bedroom (with queen size bed) looked very spacious and comfortable as well. The second bathroom downstairs is also spacious and well appointed. We definitely recommend this location to others!

"Family Getaway"

by Sean H.

06/01/2019

The cabin worked out perfectly for our family of four plus dog. Great location near the NOC, zipline tours, etc. Very clean and well equipped. The kids loved the hot tub and foosball table. The adults loved the view.

"Beautiful view!!!"

by Melanie S.

"One word: Heaven"

by Cylee D.

02/01/2019

We absolutely enjoyed our 4 night stay at Mountain Magic! It was such an adventure with beautiful views just driving up to the cabin. Everything is exactly as advertised (which if you’re skeptical like me, is nice to hear before renting a place). The cabin was very nice and clean. I loved every single detail right down to the cute little bear decorations. My boyfriend and I felt truly spoiled this whole weekend from being able to wake up and jump straight in the hot tub every morning to being able to enjoy such gorgeous views I otherwise would not be able to experience. We did not use the grill or the fire pit, but very much appreciated that it was accessible if we decided to. We had a lot of fun just relaxing and we never wanted to go home! I felt like I was in heaven these past few days, everything was so perfect. We hope to return very soon!!

"Nice, clean & quiet…"

by Roger W.

02/01/2019

Wonderful quiet weekend in the rain. Had a great time even though weather refused to cooperate. Nice cabin, would stay again. Management made check in and out simple, with limited effort required to enjoy outr time away. Thanks so much!

"So beautiful!"

by Samantha H.

02/01/2019

I was just expecting a mountain getaway with my boyfriend but he ended purposing in this wonderful cabin with such a view! The house was so clean & had everything we could need. Bryson city was the absolute cutest & you guys must try Everett’s breakfast! Thank you Kathleen for having us! This cabin really was magical this weekend

"The cabin was very peaceful and quiet.It was just the perfect environment for a couple to relax"

by Shawn D.

The overall experience was great,very clean,peaceful and the set up was perfect.We are very pleased with our stay and looking forward to returning with family soon.

by Sarah

02/01/2019

Mountain magic is private, yet close enough to a convenience store should you need anything. Zip lining and white water rafting was a super short drive away. We had everything we needed, the views were incredible and watching the sunset over the mountains from the hot tub was my favorite. We will definitely stay in touch for future bookings.

"The cabin and view were perfect for a relaxing get away!"

by Emily C M.

12/01/2018

The cabin was so clean, cozy and full of anything you could need from cooking a meal in, to watching movies, to playing games. And, close to many hiking trails.

"Cozy cabin and amazing views!"

by Jeffery R.

11/01/2018

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend after he got home from deployment and we could not have asked for a better trip! The kitchen and balcony grill are set up with everything you need to grab groceries in town and cook at home while you stay. The mountains were so beautiful, and I was so happy the leaves were still orange and gold for the first weekend of November while we were there. The pictures we took every time we stepped out doesn't do the view justice! We enjoyed the hot tub both nights, and Saturday morning with our coffee. The stars at night, and the mountain morning sun- It was all just so dreamy! The cabin was extremely clean and well organized with instructions for guests about any questions you would possibly have, and even had maps for near by hikes and places to check out! We also enjoyed riding horses at the Nantahala Stables, and our stop in Bryson City when we first arrived (We had dinner at Smoky Mountains Winery & Wood Fire Pizza-- I'd highly recommend if you go into town!) All in All, I would rate our stay five stars, and we will definitely be returning as soon as we can!!

Perfect spot to have a fire and sit I. The hot tub!

"Truly Magical"

by A FlipKey verified

10/01/2018

Let’s start with cleanliness. This place was immaculate. A perfect cozy mountain cabin, beautifully appointed with tasteful furnishings. The views from the deck were amazing. S’mores on the fire pit and relaxing in hot tub while watching the clouds kiss the Smokies. Doesn’t get much better than this!

by Alex

10/01/2018

Kathleen’s place was exactly what our group needed for the weekend. It was a peaceful and quiet escape from the city to the mountains with anything you could need. Kathleen was prompt with her responses and the house was very clean. I would definitely recommend this AirBnB to a friend.

by Nanna

08/01/2018

Mountain Magic cabin was INCREDIBLE. Summer storms meant we didn’t get to go outdoors as much as we would have liked, but the wide selection of games and available DVDs, paired with the super comfy chairs, ensured we could still make the most of our stay. So comfortable, such great views, A+ all around.

Wonderful cabin that is quite secluded. the views from the porch will make you never want to leave! The cabin was fully equipped and furnished, we were able to make dinner while there. The nearby towns are full of exciting things to do, but it is also fun to hangout at the cabin itself!

by Heather C.

06/01/2018

The cabin is beautifully updated and still with a cozy cabin feel. The deck has incredible views of the mountains as well as the hot tub. We went to the NOC which is 5 minutes down the road and white water rafting trip down the Nantahala river. It was such a great time. We absolutely loved this cabin and will be coming back again.

This was potentially my family's favorite vacation. This cabin is located in the peaceful mountains with activities like hiking, mountain biking, rafting, tubing and the national park all within 30 minutes. The cabin itself was very well stocked and had a beautiful view as well as outdoors area to explore. My children enjoyed fishing and hiking around the property nearby. I highly recommend this cabin. Kathleen was very attentive and responsive with any needs. We appreciate you and hope to return!

Mountain Magic is a Fantastic Place to Vaca!! The Views are phenomenal, and the cabin it's self is very comfy and accommodating. Tucked away on a mountain side that faces other mountains it's peaceful, tranquil and truly a nice place to stay.

Our family of four had a great experience in this cabin. Everything you might need is there. We enjoyed the beautiful views, the movie selection, the fire pit, and the overall atmosphere. The drive going up and down the mountain was exciting too. This cabin is centrally located, close enough to attractions, but far away enough for serenity.

Mountain Magic is a great retreat! This was our 2nd time staying and we definitely will come back. It is the perfect location - we can go to Deep Creek for a hike, into Bryson City to Mountain Perks for a cup of coffee and breakfast, schedule a local massage at Lakeview at Fontana, or just sit on the porch and look at that view... and do nothing. The house is very comfortable for 2 couples and 2 dogs and very well stocked. Don't delay... book your magical getaway soon.

Our family had a great Spring getaway to Bryson City and our new favorite cabin getaway - Mountain Magic. The pictures are accurate reflections of the property and it is very clean and well maintained including the hot tub which we really appreciated and enjoyed every day of our visit. The cabin is open and airy and well stocked with amenities including his and her bath robes. Kathleen was great to work with both before and during our visit. The cabin is easily accessible with paved roads all the way to the cabin yet still offers fantastic long-range views of the surrounding mountains.
If you like rest and relation, you may never venture beyond the area near the cabin. However, if you do decide to check out the surrounding areas, there is plenty to do in the Nantahala Gorge area, the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), tons of hiking trails, and a delightful small downtown area nearby in Bryson City with a number of good restaurants and plenty of shops. The people in town were warm and friendly which we found refreshing.

We visited Mountain Magic for the mountain view and cabin feel. We are so happy to have found a cabin that was enjoyable to stay at and is also located near many beautiful outdoor adventures. The cabin is close to Wesser Creek, which feeds into the lower portion of the Nantahala Gorge. The gorge itself provided an entire day of exploration for us.
While we were there, we made some maintenance requests, which were fixed the same day. My son loved his stay in the loft, my dog loved to listen to the mountain wildlife and sniff the breeze, my wife felt very at home, and I loved the view of the stars from the fire pit area and the porch.
We would love to stay again should we return to the area.

We absolutely loved our mini vacation top this cabin. The pictures just don't do it justice. Breath taking views, amazing amenities at the cabin, well worth every penny. So relaxing, so well maintained, so amazing. Loved every minute

No detail overlooked! Beautiful views, very clean, and conveniently located. Since it was colder weather than expected, the hot tub and cozy fireplace were great after a day out! Our family enjoyed the board games too! Wonderful memories made this week! Thank you so much! Definitely will be recommending this cabin to everyone and will be staying here, when we are in the area again 🙂

Cabin was beautiful, tastefully decorated. Views were amazing. Will definitely recommend to friends. If you're looking for a nice quiet peaceful and relaxing place. Mountain Magic is it.

Me and my wife spent 5 nights at this wonderful cabin and could have stayed for a year. The view was absolutely stunning. If you are looking for a cabin with a view, this is it. The cabin was also very clean and everything in its place. We enjoyed the Hot Tub almost everyday we were there as well. Bryson City isn't too far away if you need food or groceries but far enough away that you are out of the city life. Kathleen will go out of your way to make sure all questions are answered. We will be back soon!

The best vacation spot we ever had! My wife and I were already planning of coming back even though we just got there. We love the place! The kids had a blast. I was able to take their eyes away from the gadgets with all the indoor and outdoor activities. The inside was clean and lovely. Has a warm, cozy and welcoming vibe to it. It has everything you need except for groceries of course. The outside is breathtaking! You are literally one with the mountains given that you're really on high ground overlooking the mountain range. The scene was amazing that you get occasional pauses just to stare it's beauty. A grill, a fire pit, a hot tub and an overlooking patio makes the outside fun and relaxing. Given a chance we'll definitely be back here in a heartbeat! Thank you Kathleen, Gina and all the staff for making our Christmas vacation a fun and meaningful one. Hope to see you all soon.

If you need a nice two bedroom house with a view that is very convenient to the Nantahala River and NOC, then this cabin will be hard to beat.

I was extremely impressed with everything about this cabin. The location was amazing and extremely private. The views were incredible. The hot tub was perfect .. especially at nighttime with all the lights of the house off... you can see every star in the sky. Everything was stocked well... there is every pan and dish you can think of. The robes were great to use while just hanging out at the cabin, especially after getting out of the hot tub. It was extremely clean and well-kept. I will definitely be going back. There is so much to do within about 30 minutes of the house. We went hiking and horseback riding... hung out at Nantahala brewing company. My favorite part of all though was just spending quality time in the cabin!

Winter Escape.
It was my first time renting a cabin and I really lucked out with this one. It had everything you could possibly want out of a cabin: spectacular views, cozy furniture, lots of lil board games and things to do if you bring kids, a wonderful neighbor, NOC is only few miles away, I can go on forever, l want to add a great management too...Kathleen always picked up when I needed her and she was such a pleasure in helping me. Two thumbs up! I did make a mistake of bringing some irresponsible campers that burned a bakeware. I truly apologize and I want to send a new one to replace. I really look forward to being able to come back again with my little 4yo girl.

Perfection.
This cabin was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. The view was gorgeous. Well stocked with everything we could need and more! The inside looks brand new but still has that great cabin feel we were looking for. Loved all the decor and the gas fireplace! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We are already planning on making this a yearly trip!

Everything you need
What a great cabin. The view was magnificient, the cabin was well stocked, spending time around the fire pit was our favorite! Hot tub was clean (but could use stronger jets) wasn't slimy. The only con I would say was that the loft bedroom needed shades so guests could sleep in( flooded with sunlight early in the AM).

My Response

Hi Melissa, We are so glad to hear that you loved the cabin and location! We do our best to keep the supplies and decor fresh and "new"! You will be happy to know that we did re hang the blinds that are normally on the eye brow windows! When one of them broke, I told my Husband we needed to hang them up again, and being an early riser, he said "No one comes to the Mountains to sleep in"....

Beautiful Venue and very well equipped
The view is the thing with a cabin vacation in the Smoky Mountains and this place has it in spades. The cabin has all you would ever need with a very effective BBQ which when we eat in was mainly what we used. Hot tup great, toasting marshmallows in the fire pit not a normal thing for us Brits to do so was great for us. Highly recommended

Great Vacation! We sat on the porch every night looking at the beautiful view. The location was very convenient. Saw a number of waterfalls, went whitewater rafting at the Noc, took a train ride, watched the elk graze in Cherokee. We had a blast! We were at the cabin by early evening every night to grill and relax. We also fished in the pond and one of the guys caught a bass. Cabin had everything we needed.
Owner Response:
Thank You so much for your 5 star review of Mountain Magic Cabin. We just love hearing about the great times our Guests have while staying in this FABULOUS LOCATION! I hope you kept the Bass, that pond is fed by a fresh spring, so "catch and eat"! I rarely hear that folks don't catch anything while fishing in that pond. I think the record is 22 little "Brim" (they used cut up pieces of worms, and when they ran out, they used bread balls). Non stop action for the little fisher girls and boys! They threw them all back, so future Guests, come catch them again! Steve and Kathleen

Paradise! Mountain Magic is amazing place to stay. The cabin has all the comforts of home and all the magic of a wonderful vacation. Having morning coffee in the hot tub with the sunrise over the mountains is nothing short of wonderful. We went hiking every day in the national parks and ziplining is a must at wildwater. Great memories, I will be back for sure.

Secluded Gem of a Cabin!
The property is exactly as advertised. Feels very secluded but not too far from civilization. Most of our time was spent out on the deck, taking in the views, reading books, enjoying local craft beer, and relaxing in the hot tub. The road was easily accessible in our Toyota Celica, paved and free of snow and ice... I suppose I The highlight of our 11 day roadtrip was staying here for 2 nights. Not far from the NOC and about 15 minutes into Bryson City (Nantahala Brewing Co. was a nice stop). We would come back again, just the 2 of us.

The cabin was a magic mountain stay in all regards. We had a wonderful stay and everything was as published and more. The view from the deck of the stars and mountain view was out of sight. We enjoyed the fire pit at night for roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. The outside gas grill was the best and very clean and set up for easy use. Access to the unit was an experience too. I felt like we were driving to the moon as the road was at blast off angle. Quite a climb at the end. Very private cabin location. Inside and out the cabin was just right. Kitchen furnishing was spot on for our use. Beds and bathrooms very clean and comfortable for all. Inside fire place was used and a nice bonus. The cabin was very close to everything we wanted to explore like Smokey Mountain train rides, NOC, Deer Creek park, Harrad's and blue ridge parkway areas. Only issue we had was there was old batteries in a remote control (we bought new for next guest). The check in instructions were very easy to use and made checkin very convenient. Parking was perfect and reservations very satisfying experience. All in all one of my favorite get away weekends. Thank goodness our checkout was prior to the snow fall. One last thing was the sun set view from the porch. It was spectacular and worthy of a standing ovation!!!!!!

And all the amenities we could ask for were virtually right at hand. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

The Magic is Here!!!
I have traveled to many places always searching for "That Place." That place that would give me that peace that would allow me true tranquility to make "Health- Life Choices." Recently faced with another "choice", I set off on another journey to find an answer in "That Place." My journey included waterfalls, caves, rivers and lakes and at the end of my journey was "Magic Mountain." As much as I enjoyed all of the stops I made on my journey, I knew the moment I arrived at "Magic Mnt" that indeed my journey would end here. Of all the places in all of my life I have never felt that I had truly found "That Place." It was almost instantly that I felt just an overwhelming relief of all that was "life." I would sit on the deck for the first 3-4 hours just taking in all the "Magic" and in those few hours I felt so close to heaven and felt I had found "That Place" the place I had looked for all of my life. The place that would put me so at peace and allow me to feel a kind of strength inside, feeling like I had all of heaven with me and would never be alone again. "Magic Mnt" was truly magic for me. I was able to make "Life- Health Choices" and feel so good about those choices, feel that for once I knew what I had to do and I was o.k. with what was ahead in my life. I know I will make the journey back to "Magic Mnt." Im planing on returning with my grandchildren in 5 years to share the journey and the story of "Magic Mnt" the "magic" and life, it gave to their grandmother.

The four of us that traveled loved the cabin, the view and the area!! We are from Ontario Canada and when we arrived the shopping service that is provided had our food to make dinner and a cold beer waiting for us! We loved that part since we were on motorcycles and we would have had to go there first unload then go back out and get our supplies, having it all there was perfect! We all slept great each night and found everything that we needed was there. We loved the robes too!! It is a very central place for bikers that want to ride the winding scenic roads that are all around. Kathleen was always available and we really have no complaints, all in all was a fantastic stay and we would not hesitate to go back to Magic Mountain again!!
