Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 season include new Leather Sofa and Love Seat and the addition of a Wii Game System (just in case of a rainy day)... 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 Magestic 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-therepy, 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! Tthere is an Outdoor Firepit to gather around and make smores, (3) Flatscreen - 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.

About Kathleen Ford

We purchased a second home in the Mountains in 2005-2005. We enjoyed our get a ways so much that in 2007 we moved here full time!

Kathleen Ford purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Kathleen Ford chose Bryson City

When we stood on this lot surrounded by nature and spectacular Long Range Mountain Views, we knew instantly this was the ideal place to build this cabin! Our goal was to create a romantic atmosphere that was also 'child friendly'. Many Guests that have stayed at Mountain Magic over the last few years agree, it is a success!

What makes this cabin unique

Unique to this property, right out of the front door you will enjoy over 50 acres of hiking trails, a fishing pond! The cabin is just a 5 minute drive to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (N.O.C.)! The location, views, and amenities are first class!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow! What a wonderful view & serene setting. We have had a great time relaxing and sitting around the firepit & sight seeing excursions.

My husband and I had a MUCH NEEDED long weekend with our daughter and her husband. We've had a wonderful time and enjoyed the use of your cabin! We wished we could stay longer! Thank You

Mountain Magic is amazing place to stay. The cabin has all the comforts of home and all the magic of a wonderful vacation. Having morning coffee in the hot tub with the sunrise over the mountains is nothing short of wonderful. We went hiking every day in the national parks and ziplining is a must at wildwater. Great memories, I will be back for sure.

Mountain cabin retreat weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a magic mountain stay in all regards. We had a wonderful stay and everything was as published and more. The view from the deck of the stars and mountain view was out of sight. We enjoyed the fire pit at night for roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. The outside gas grill was the best and very clean and set up for easy use. Access to the unit was an experience too. I felt like we were driving to the moon as the road was at blast off angle. Quite a climb at the end. Very private cabin location. Inside and out the cabin was just right. Kitchen furnishing was spot on for our use. Beds and bathrooms very clean and comfortable for all. Inside fire place was used and a nice bonus. The cabin was very close to everything we wanted to explore like Smokey Mountain train rides, NOC, Deer Creek park, Harrad's and blue ridge parkway areas. Only issue we had was there were old batteries in a few remote control (we bought new for next guest) and no spare light bulbs (we also bought new bulbs). The check in instructions were very easy to use and made checkin very convenient. Parking was perfect and reservations very satisfying experience. All in all one of my favorite get away weekends. Thank goodness our checkout was prior to the snow fall. One last thing was the sun set view from the porch. It was spectacular and worthy of a standing ovation!!!!!!

Wonderful cabin

We loved this cabin. The view is fantastic. The cabin is clean and the beds are very comfortable. It is so close to the NOC too. The kitchen was well stocked and usable. We will be visiting again.

Owner's Response: Hello and Thank You for taking the time to let us know how well you enjoyed your time at Mountain Magic! We love that the cabin is so close to the N.O.C. As well! Bryson City does offer some great restaurants and shops, but we spend more time at the NOC while we are in the Mountaims, than anywhere else! Kathleen and Steve

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a lovely 10 days in the Smoky Mountains and the location was great for all types of outdoor activities. We also enjoyed the quiet town of Bryson City and experienced several enjoyable activities at the NOC. The house was perfect and everything worked great. One minor inconvenience is that there is no trash pick-up, so having to haul it away after a ten-day stay was a bit frustrating. The views are stunning and the kids enjoyed the hot tub after along day of hiking, tubing, and exploring. We would definitely recommend it and it actually is even nicer than the pictures portray it.

The "Magic" is here!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to many places always searching for "That Place." That place that would give me that peace that would allow me true tranquility to make "Health- Life Choices." Recently faced with another "choice", I set off on another journey to find an answer in "That Place." My journey included waterfalls, caves, rivers and lakes and at the end of my journey was "Magic Mountain." As much as I enjoyed all of the stops I made on my journey, I knew the moment I arrived at "Magic Mnt" that indeed my journey would end here. Of all the places in all of my life I have never felt that I had truely found "That Place." It was almost instantly that I felt just an overwhelming relief of all that was "life." I would sit on the deck for the first 3-4 hours just taking in all the "Magic" and in those few hours I felt so close to heaven and felt I had found "That Place" the place I had looked for all of my life. The place that would put me so at peace and allow me to feel a kind of strength inside, feeling like I had all of heaven with me and would never be alone again. "Magic Mnt" was truely magic for me. I was able to make "Life- Health Choices" and feel so good about those choices, feel that for once I knew what I had to do and I was o.k. with what was ahead in my life. I know I will make the journey back to "Magic Mnt." Im planing on returning with my grandchildren in 5 years to share the journey and the story of "Magic Mnt" the "magic" and life, it gave to their grandmother.
