About River Magic

Amazing Views/Relaxing Vacation
This was our third trip to the Hot Springs area.
We stayed for 7 nights at the River Magic Cabin and wished we could have spent the summer here.
The home was very cleaned and well stocked. I loved having a washer, dryer and being able to make our own meals.
Our daughter enjoyed having the basement to herself.
We enjoyed the peace and quite and also sound of the train going by every once in a while.
We would recommend this cabin to anyone and would love to come back.

So glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay at River Magic!
The beauty of this place was beyond compare. From the area to the furnishings everything was perfect. Loved all the wood and the use of natural things that embodied the cottage. It was roomy and comfortable, bed was comfortable also which is always important. This cottage was impeccably clean and well supplied. Oh, and the view from the back deck is breathtaking. I would highly recommend this cottage to everyone and look forward to returning some time in the future.
first family vacation
My wife, child, and I stayed here for 3 nights in June. Great spot, have been coming to carolina mts for 10 years and this was one of my favorite rentals. My son was so inspired, he was taking major strides in independent walking.
Hope to come back
Was a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the amazing sounds of the river.
Great river view and location!
This is a great place to stay - especially on a romantic get away! The owners were great to work with and responded immediately to a question during our stay! The cabin was clean and had all the amenities you need! The hot tub was cleaned the day we arrived which was a bonus. The only drawback is the fireplace did not vent well so the bedroom that is upstairs had a fair amount of smoke smell in it and got very warm. There is also a train close by - so if you are a light sleeper this can be a little disruptive. But otherwise is a fabulous place to stay! The Appalachian trail is nearby as well as an easy trip to Asheville! Would highly recommend!
Thanks so much for coming and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. There is a train track about a half mile away from the cabin that goes thru the town of Hot Springs. Since it is at a distance no guests have ever complained and we have had some mention that hearing it in the distance they find romantic. A new design chimney cap has been installed to eliminate any downdraft smoke. We always strive to make our guests stay wonderful! Thanks again for coming!
Best view in Hot Springs.
We have found our Hot Springs cabin. When we return we will definitely stay at River Magic.
