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!

About NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals

Steve and Kathleen Ford 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 Child friendly. According to our wonderful Guest comments/reviews and the number of Guests that return often, we accomplish our goals!

NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals purchased this cabin in 2010

Why NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals chose Bryson City Area

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 the home site on this Mountain, it took only a few seconds to decide that this location was Perfect for our Rustic Modern Cabin Retreat! We created the fabulous cabin, but God created those ever changing and always captivating Long Range Mountain Views!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Rustic Modern Decor, Stone Fireplace, Fire-Pit, Fishing and Hiking. Just minutes from the Outdoor Fun, yet Peacefully Private!

We would love to hear from you, Call or email us, and ask about "Mountain Magic". ***Online Booking is available 24/7**

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

Porch Gravity!

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Magic is a great retreat! This was our 2nd time staying and we definitely will come back. It is the perfect location - we can go to Deep Creek for a hike, into Bryson City to Mountain Perks for a cup of coffee and breakfast, schedule a local massage at Lakeview at Fontana, or just sit on the porch and look at that view... and do nothing. The house is very comfortable for 2 couples and 2 dogs and very well stocked. Don't delay... book your magical getaway soon.

Great Cabin - Nice View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. I loved getting in the hot tub every morning and then just sitting on the porch. There was a clothesline which was great to hang up beach items. The trash drop off was very handy. The washer and dryer were nice. The road to the cabin was kind of scary--very narrow. We have a bigger car, Ford Flex.

Owner's Response: Hello Byron and Thank You so much for taking the time to submit this flattering review. We put up that clothesline for exactly that reason (and because we all love the smell of clothing and linens dried in the fresh mountain air)! You forgot to mention all of the widened areas along the road as you drive up. It is common in the mountains, to have wider areas to pull to the side in the event of a car approaching from the opposite direction. It is not common to find paved road access, but when you do, this is the way it is done in these parts. Again, we are Thankful you chose to stay with us, and hope you come back soon! Steve and Kathleen Ford

perfect family vacation spot and well stocked, nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was potentially my family's favorite vacation. This cabin is located in the peaceful mountains with activities like hiking, mountain biking, rafting, tubing and the national park all within 30 minutes. The cabin itself was very well stocked and had a beautiful view as well as outdoors area to explore. My children enjoyed fishing and hiking around the property nearby. I highly recommend this cabin. Kathleen was very attentive and responsive with any needs. We appreciate you and hope to return!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great experience in this cabin. Everything you might need is there. We enjoyed the beautiful views, the movie selection, the fire pit, and the overall atmosphere. The drive going up and down the mountain was exciting too. This cabin is centrally located, close enough to attractions, but far away enough for serenity.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Magic is a Fantastic Place to Vaca!! The Views are phenomenal, and the cabin it's self is very comfy and accommodating. Tucked away on a mountain side that faces other mountains it's peaceful, tranquil and truly a nice place to stay.
