This affordable vacation cabin rental is the ideal place for a nice relaxing, peaceful getaway. Mountain Magic is both cozy and comfortable, with modern style, and decor.

Mountain Magic has a lot to offer. From a lazy hammock in the yard, the outdoor hot tub with glassed-in deck to soak in the stars, to cozy furnishings around the fireplace. Enjoy a cup of tea, morning coffee or an evening glass of wine in the sun room, sure to hit the spot. Take a walk around the mostly fenced-in and mostly level property and enjoy the artistic old painted barn, which houses the beloved farm animals. We ask that you feed our farm animals only organic produce.

The acreage next to Magic is home to:

1 Llama (Dolly Llama)

2 Miniature Donkeys (Annabelle & Sweetie Pie)

1 Potbelly Pig (Heather)

5 super sweet goats (Priscilla, Kiwi, Ginger, Jasper & Snowball)

and maybe a couple others...

You will absolutely fall in love with the animals! Everyone does, so don't say you won't.

The upstairs loft is spacious and quaint, it has a swinging chair, perfect for reading a book in, a dresser, rocking chair and a King bed. The kitchen has all you need to create a home-cooked meal and is open to the great room for entertaining. Build a fire in the fireplace and watch a movie all at the same time. There is a bedroom on the main level with a Queen. After the evening is up, the bathroom has a charming Jacuzzi tub to relax in. The downstairs bedroom has a flat screen TV and a Queen size bed. You might want to sit on the covered porch and enjoy the sounds of nature and watch over the animals next door. Also the deck, just off the sun room would be a great place for grilling, lounging and enjoying the view of the rock waterfall.

Mountain Magic has been host to a beautiful marriage ceremony and it went so well that we are thrilled to offer this wonderful property as a wedding venue for your special day (must approved in advance, of course)!

Mountain Magic is 15 minutes from the town of Boone in North Carolina's beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Home of Appalachian State University, plenty of restaurants (upscale and fast food), new breweries, antique shopping and everything you need while on vacation including an organic-based grocery store. Nearby attractions include Watauga Lake (everyone forgets how close this wonderful lake is!), Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock, Appalachian Ski Mountain, Sugar Ski Mountain, Ski Beech, (ALL THREE SKI RESORTS AND HAWKSNEST(snow tubing only) ARE LESS THAN 35 MINUTES FROM THE CABIN), new Zipline and ropes courses, whitewater rafting, gem mining, The Blowing Rock, historic Valle Crucis, lazy summer activities on the New River and so much more. Our area is truly a four seasons resort-type destination with easy access to all of the area amenities!

After your restful stay at Mountain Magic, we are confident you too will become one of our many returning families! Come enjoy our perfect 5-star Mountain Magic!

Why Connie Trivette chose Sugar Grove

Unique, quaint, private and unbelievable acreage (a level yard in the mountains!!!) ... to name a few. The animals are a real treat for all the guests and very entertaining... All things enjoyable wrapped up in this property named so fittingly, we've been told, Mountain Magic...

What makes this cabin unique

This property also can give your horse a room and board if you desire to bring it. The animals are such a joy to the guests. You really just have to see them, it has been said this place is better than a petting zoo...

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Loved the goats!! We've stayed in many similar cabins around the Blue Ridge, but none as clean, tastefully decorated, or in as nice of a setting as yours. AND never been treated so graciously.

We will recommend it to our friends. Thank you and God bless.

Mountain Magic was more than Magical

  • 5 of 5

Save yourself some time, quit looking at other cabins and book Magic right now. I would recommend this cabin to anyone and everyone. Even though it says 2 bedrooms, it is really 3 bedrooms and the loft is as private as a bedroom. It is a magical place, the land is well-maintained, there was good access in the snow, the cabin is meticulously maintained. They should charge more for this cabin. The animals were so cute, we were concerned there might be a smell (happy to report, zero), but they have acres and acres to explore next door, we pet and fed them, like our own petting zoo and they were so gentle and loving. The hot tub, the stars, the fires, we could not have imagined a better experience for the kids, and us. Thank you Connie, you made out winter trip so incredibly amazing. We have nothing constructive to

Mountain Magic definitely a Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Mountain Magic on our annual family after Christmas trip with my wife and two kids. Our first experience was such a fantastic one, that we all said on our drive back we found our new favorite place so we booked year two. Mountain Magic and the animals are reasons in itself, but in the 14 years we have been traveling to NC after the Holidays we have never felt so at home with Connie. She is the most fantastic host and checks off each detail, especially down to Christmas feel from the minute you pull into the drive. We always look forward to the end of our 12 hour trip, but most importantly to continue the Holiday feel in this little magical place from the famous Christmas tree to the lit up tire snowman! The snow was a beautiful sight this year, and once again Connie was there to make sure we were all right and provide us with great advice on managing the drive way. Look forward to year 3 in 2018.

Great location for winter activities.

Near to great restaurants in Boone...try Wild Craft Eatery and Coyote Kitchen. Appalachian Ski Mountain was great for beginners.

The unique personality of each farm animal was delightfully entertaining.
