This affordable vacation cabin rental is the ideal place for a nice relaxing, peaceful getaway. Mountain Magic is both cozy and comfortable, with modern style, and decor.

Mountain Magic has a lot to offer. From a lazy hammock in the yard, the outdoor hot tub with glassed-in deck to soak in the stars, to cozy furnishings around the fireplace. Enjoy a cup of tea, morning coffee or an evening glass of wine in the sun room, sure to hit the spot. Take a walk around the mostly fenced-in and mostly level property and enjoy the artistic old painted barn, which houses the beloved farm animals. We ask that you feed our farm animals only organic produce.

The acreage next to Magic is home to:

1 Llama (Dolly Llama)

2 Miniature Donkeys (Annabelle & Sweetie Pie)

1 Potbelly Pig (Heather)

5 super sweet goats (Priscilla, Kiwi, Ginger, Jasper & Snowball)

and maybe a couple others...

You will absolutely fall in love with the animals! Everyone does, so don't say you won't.

The upstairs loft is spacious and quaint, it has a swinging chair, perfect for reading a book in, a dresser, rocking chair and a King bed. The kitchen has all you need to create a home-cooked meal and is open to the great room for entertaining. Build a fire in the fireplace and watch a movie all at the same time. There is a bedroom on the main level with a Queen. After the evening is up, the bathroom has a charming Jacuzzi tub to relax in. The downstairs bedroom has a flat screen TV and a Queen size bed. You might want to sit on the covered porch and enjoy the sounds of nature and watch over the animals next door. Also the deck, just off the sun room would be a great place for grilling, lounging and enjoying the view of the rock waterfall.

Mountain Magic has been host to a beautiful marriage ceremony and it went so well that we are thrilled to offer this wonderful property as a wedding venue for your special day (must approved in advance, of course)!

Mountain Magic is 15 minutes from the town of Boone in North Carolina's beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Home of Appalachian State University, plenty of restaurants (upscale and fast food), new breweries, antique shopping and everything you need while on vacation including an organic-based grocery store. Nearby attractions include Watauga Lake (everyone forgets how close this wonderful lake is!), Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock, Appalachian Ski Mountain, Sugar Ski Mountain, Ski Beech, (ALL THREE SKI RESORTS AND HAWKSNEST(snow tubing only) ARE LESS THAN 35 MINUTES FROM THE CABIN), new Zipline and ropes courses, whitewater rafting, gem mining, The Blowing Rock, historic Valle Crucis, lazy summer activities on the New River and so much more. Our area is truly a four seasons resort-type destination with easy access to all of the area amenities!

After your restful stay at Mountain Magic, we are confident you too will become one of our many returning families! Come enjoy our perfect 5-star Mountain Magic!

Why Connie Trivette chose Sugar Grove

Unique, quaint, private and unbelievable acreage (a level yard in the mountains!!!) ... to name a few. The animals are a real treat for all the guests and very entertaining... All things enjoyable wrapped up in this property named so fittingly, we've been told, Mountain Magic...

What makes this cabin unique

This property also can give your horse a room and board if you desire to bring it. The animals are such a joy to the guests. You really just have to see them, it has been said this place is better than a petting zoo...

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Loved the goats!! We've stayed in many similar cabins around the Blue Ridge, but none as clean, tastefully decorated, or in as nice of a setting as yours. AND never been treated so graciously.

We will recommend it to our friends. Thank you and God bless.

Mountain Magic is pure Magic

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. It definitely has EVERYTHING you need if you just want to hang out at the house. The amenities were amazing. The only tech suggestion I would offer is maybe putting a firestick/roku device on your TV's and get rid of your cable. Allow people to log in with their Netflix accounts. That isn't a complaint we had an amazing time. It was SO relaxing. The hot tub was awesome. We had one thing that we needed to contact Mrs. Connie about but she took care of it immediately. The petting zoo was really cool. We are saving this rental and want to come back with our friends and future family.

Mountain Magic for sure!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mountain Magic. My grandsons loved the animals esp. the one week old baby goat. He wanted so much to take it home with him. Out to see them at daybreak and spent most of his time just hanging with them. Hope to visit again!

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and 4 year old son and jack Russell, and another couple with a 4 year old and we had the best time. It’s cozy but still enough room to separate if needed. The animals are just sweet friends and they loved eating carrots. Quiet and peaceful and the beds are so comfy. I took the basement bed and slept better than I do at home. Bathrooms are nice and it had everything we needed. The best spot is the sunroom! We will be back!
