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!

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 Gas and/or Charcoal BBQ Grill. 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!

This 2018 Season has brought several exciting Upgrades! There is now a King Size bed upstairs that offers "Sleep Number" technology with dual controls, and a New larger (42") Flat Screen TV in the living room. (The Queen Bed on the main level was previousely upgraded with a high quality mattress and memory foam topper.)

As always, the beds are prepared with Luxury linens and top quality Bedding.

Now offering complimentary WiFi to our Guests, (for emailing and browsing the web).

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!

There are a total of (3) Flat-screen - Satellite TV's, WiFi, and a Foosball Table!

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 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.

View the new area Guide for links and additional information about the area and activities.

Over 50 acres of Green Space: 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!

About NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals

Steve and Kathleen are the Owners and Managers of "Mountain Magic" Cabin. We built this cabin with Vacation Guests in mind. Our goal was to create a rustic modern cabin that is both Romantic and Family friendly.

NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals purchased this Cabin in 2010

Why NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals chose Nantahala

We love to hike, bike, and explore Nature. With the 50 + acres of green space behind the cabin (including a fishing pond) and the NOC so close, and the Tsali just down the road, we knew this was the area we wanted to be in. Once we saw these views, we just knew!

What makes this Cabin unique

Rustic Modern Decor, Stone Fireplace, Fire-Pit, Hot Tub, Fishing, Hiking. Just minutes from the N.O.C.! We would love to hear from you, Call or email us, and ask about "Mountain Magic". Online Booking is available 24/7

                                                                      Clean, well stocked with essentials. Loved the view! Road wasn't too bad, but we have a jacked up long bed 4x4 so maneuvering some sharp turns, we had to do some extra backing up, pulling forward! Overall very pleased with our choice.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Dear Angela, Thank You very much for the review of Mountain Magic. We are extremely pleased to know that you enjoyed the cabin and area (we LOVE it)! Because we live just 45 minutes away, we have not stayed at the cabin for a few years. I think that needs to change. A little "stay-cation" with in cabin massages... The area is unlike anywhere else and just feels "vacationy".

                                                                      My Husband used to have the same type of truck, and once he knew where to make the wide turns, he never had to do the "back up" method again. I know this is hard to imagine, but for cabins with views like that, this is one of the easiest roads around.

                                                                      Kathleen and Steve

                                                                      Awesome cabin!

                                                                      Connie H.

                                                                      We loved the cabin! Beautiful views, some of the best amenities we have had in a cabin. We will be back.


                                                                      Steven O.

                                                                      Everything was nice and cozy .

                                                                      Just wish the cleaning service would pay more detail during clean up. The oven was gross with caked on grease. The table cloth in the kitchen table had food crumbs on it . The spa tub downstairs had a piece of long hair laying there. In which we did not use. It just made us question the cleanliness of the bed sheets etc. The view was beautiful!

                                                                      The amenities such as the grill, jacuzzi, fire pit were such a nice touch. I would stay here again , but clean it myself next time.

                                                                      Thank you for your help!

                                                                      Prior to your reserving the cabin, when your wife asked me to waive the Housekeeping/Amenity fee for her to clean the cabin herself, I explained that we do not allow Guests to clean and prepare the cabin for the next Guests arrival. Additionally, we do not allow for a Guest to arrive and check in to a dirty cabin, and clean it themselves. I can assure you that housekeeping cleaned and scrubbed the cabin from top to bottom prior to your check in.

                                                                      Our cleaning procedures are consistently praised and complimented by a very high number of our Guests (shown in over 40 online reviews). I realize that no one is perfect (although perfection is always our goal), your statement about “caked on grease” is an absolute and blatant lie, which leads me to wonder how much truth there is to your other comments...

                                                                      If you felt that her performance was not up to your standards, I wish you had called, texted, or emailed me directly instead of publically embarrassing us. Kathleen Ford

                                                                      Mara E.

                                                                      The pics were just as promised.....it was GORGEOUS! It was my first time driving up mountain roads so that was a little scary but well worth the adventure! Everyone in Bryson city was super nice and helpful. It was so quiet and peaceful. I recommend this vacation spot to anyone!!

                                                                      Our first Mountain vacation at Mountain Magic exceeded all our expectations!

                                                                      Diane R.

                                                                      We just wanted to write and let you know that our Mountain vacation was the most amazing vacation ever! It was far beyond any expectations we could of imagined!

                                                                      We looked at a lot of cabins but there was something about Mountain Magic and it was Just perfect very clean and beautiful inside would love to come again! We would highly recommend if anyone is wanting to experience a true mountain vacation Mountain Magic would meet your expectations the views from sunrise to sunset are spectacular and just breathtaking!
