About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, GameTable, Wii - Sleeps 4-5

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! Our new upgrades for the 2016 season include Leather Sofa and Love Seat and the addition of a Wii Game System (just in case of a rainy day)... So far, our 2017 updates are not quite so exciting (new deck stairs, a new coat of exterior stain, etc...)

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!

You will see what we mean by Rustic Luxury when you cuddle up in front of the Fireplace, or enjoy the Plush Egyptian Cotton Linens and 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' & 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!

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 is an Outdoor Fire-pit to gather around and make smores, (3) Flat-screen - Satellite TV's, and a Foosball Table!

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!

Beautiful and Relaxing with Fantastic Long Range Views

  • 5 of 5

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 love hearing that our Guests are comfortable and are enjoying their Vacations! Your comment about how friendly the towns people are reminds me of what my Husband says.

wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful cabin with amazing views. We had trouble with the DVD player but the owner replaced it within a few hours. The only thing we would mention is that the upstairs bed was a bit squeaky and not comfortable.

Owner's Response: Dear Tam, Thank You for taking the time to review Mountain Magic! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the cabin and views. We appreciate that you mentioned the DVD player as well. Even though we do our best to keep the cabin in "tip top shape", things like that can happen. It is our job to correct any issues you may encounter promptly! Kathleen Ford

Gorgeous view, cozy house!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival everything went smoothly and the house and dishes were very clean. The view is as pictured and worth the drive up the mountain. The drive up is all paved until you get to the driveway. The road is narrow for a little bit of the drive and you would have to reverse if another car came, but we never had that problem. The hot tub was great and warm when we got there. There was also plenty of firewood. The bed was comfortable. You can see the neighbors to the side of the house (they aren't in the way when looking at the view), and we heard them talking outside one night. This didn't bother us but something to note if you are wanting a more secluded house. It was just me and one other person, so the house had more than enough room. The bathroom upstairs off of the loft just has a door to the toilet room, not to the shower and sink. You can't see into the bathroom from downstairs, but something to be aware of depending on your comfort level with the people you are traveling with. Kathleen was very quick to respond and friendly when answering all of my questions before our stay! Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to a friend.

Owner's Response: Dear Loren, We appreciate your detailed review of Mountain Magic and are very happy to know how much you enjoyed the cabin and surrounding area! When we built the cabin, it was our goal to create an Open Concept floor plan (and still offer enough privacy in the areas where privacy is most appreciated)! That other cabin up the road was already built, so we were able to place the outdoor entertaining areas where there would be absolutely no neighbors or obstructions, and face the covered deck side of Mountain Magic straight to the incredible views!

A wonderful location for a getaway in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

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.
