About River Magic

We have lived in the mountains here for many years and enjoy the beauty and serenity this special area affords. We built River Magic Cabin so that our guests can also share this experience and relax and be refreshed in the beauty of the mountains and river.

River Magic purchased this cabin in 2012

Why River Magic chose Smoky Mountains

River Magic Has the most captivating and amazing views! The location is so special overlooking the French Broad River. It is a mere 1/2 mile from the town of Hot Springs, in a tranquil, quiet setting. It gives a great place to relax and enjoy the river, woods and trails. Come back to the cabin and sit back in the hot tub looking out to the awe inspiring river and mountain views!

You can be to restaurants and shops in less than 5 minutes. The Hot Springs Spa is close by also where you soak in the amazing natural mineral water and have a massage. A great place to ride your bike, fish or boat.

Our desire is to create a quality cabin which reflects all the charm and style of the mountains combined with the comforts and amenities to make your vacation enjoyable and a special experience.

The combination of the majestic river and mountain views is captivating and mesmerizing. What a beautiful place to sit back, relax and take in the views!

What makes this cabin unique

Unique private location. Just outside the town of Hot Springs with the National Forest, Appalachian Trail, white water rafting, horse back riding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, biking, fishing, etc. all at your doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was pure magic! We walked into the cabin and wished our reservation was longer! The views are so spectacular and the cabin was oh, so cozy! It was the perfect honeymoon! We enjoyed a night and morning soak in the Hot Springs Resort Spa and the hot stone massage. All were wonderful! Last but not least was dinner at the Mountain Magnolia which was out of this world! Highly recommended. We are already planning our next trip to Hot Springs and River Magic!

It was just the get away we needed

Perfect for honeymoon or anniversary. Just the right size and the view was amazing.

We loved it and will definitely be staying again. River Magic and Hot Springs are just what you need to unplug and unwind with your favorite someone.

Truly Magical!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were recently married at Mountain Magnolia Inn and stayed in River Magic for a week during our wedding. This is a special property that far exceeded our high hopes for a beautiful, peaceful, secluded place to spend our time while in Hot Springs. The view is breathtaking and immediately pulls you to the expansive top deck when you arrive. Drinking coffee in the morning and watching the fog roll over the mountains was the perfect way to start every day. Any time we weren't busy with the wedding we were on the deck or in the hot tub underneath, enjoying the expansive view by day or the amazing sky at night.

If you do choose to go inside, you will find a beautiful wood finished cabin that maximizes its use of space so that is both roomy and cozy all at the same time. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and appliances, there is a huge pantry/laundry room with abundant shelving (we used it to store our wedding decorations), and the living room furniture is very comfortable. The master bedroom upstairs has a large, comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom.

River Magic was perfect us! We highly recommended it to anyone. It made our wedding even more special to stay in such a lovely cabin.

Beautiful, breathtaking view with comfortable amenties

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our return trip to River Magic. It offered us everything we needed to escape the stress and worries of our normally busy lives. From mornings spent breakfasting and reading on the porch, to taking in the incredible views and quiet in the afternoon, to relaxing in the hot tub at night, we found our stay to be restful and rejuvenating. The amenities in and outside of the cabin are wonderful: we had everything we needed to cook our meals; there's plenty of outdoor seating; and they have a wonderful collection of movies and games. We will definitely be back to River Magic!!

Million Dollar View.

  • 5 of 5

Rarely are the posted pictures greater than what you see when you arrive. Not in this case. The picture doesn't come close to the grandeur, horizon, morning sunrise, evening shadows or river view from the deck.

My wife is an accomplished chef. The cabin description said something about "every thing you need for cooking". On her scale she gave the kitchen a rarely recorded score of 8. That is really, really good given her standards.

The interior of the cabin was far above expectations.

From a man's perspective, everything worked. I didn't have to fix anything - even though I would.

We have used VRBO for 19 years. We expect quality, clean, well appointed facilities. This cabin exceeded our standards.

Bottom Line: Don't rent this place. I want it available next year for us.
