Mountain Magic on the New River
Mountain Magic is the perfect riverfront retreat for the whole family, or groups of friends. This gracious mountain home offers plenty of outdoor living – and when you escape to the mountains, isn’t Nature what it’s all about? Located along a beautiful, wide stretch of the North Fork of the New River, this is your perfect spot for water adventure. Steps allow easy access to the river, where you can swim, play or fish. Enjoy gathering around the fire pit with the sound of the water as your music, play a game of volleyball, or have a picnic at the waterfront pavilion. If R&R is your goal, leave all that activity to the other folks, and chill on the swinging chairs, just a few feet from the river.
The home’s open floor-plan allows you and your family and friends to hang out and socialize. The beautiful kitchen has stainless appliances, granite tops and a gas-range, plus a pantry for longer stays. You can eat at the island or just a few steps away in the dining room, with generous windows offering a view of the river, as well as doors to the deck. Many guests opt for outdoor dining on the covered porch, which also features a large hot tub you can enjoy even if it’s raining. In the evening, sink into the living room’s comfortable seating to enjoy a movie. The entertainment center has a TV and DVD player.
In the master bedroom you’ll find a comfortable queen-sized bed, perfect for a good night’s sleep after a long day on the river. The en suite master bath offers double vanities, a walk-in closet and a beautifully tiled walk-in shower.. This area affords you some privacy, since the second and third bedrooms are on the other side of the great room – still close enough if you have children you want to keep an eye on. One of those bedrooms has a queen bed, and the other a twin with a trundle and share a full size hall bathroom.

Mountain Magic is located only 15 minutes north of the town of Jefferson, with an extra five minutes to West Jefferson’s shopping, dining and entertainment district. There you’ll find shops, galleries and restaurants to meet a variety of tastes. Stroll the main street to be treated to enjoyable conversations with our shopkeepers and dazzled by wares from antiques to boutiques, to cool stuff for the kitchen. Don’t miss North Carolina’s only cheese factory: Ashe County Cheese, where you can also indulge in delicious ice cream and fudge. Around the corner is the Honey Hole, where you can watch bees at work in a glass-fronted hive while shopping for honey-themed treats like handbags with bees on them, garden art and a wondrous variety of the locally-produced natural sweetener.
You’ll also be in a great spot to explore several scenic routes into the heart of Ashe County, to enjoy our unspoiled farming and mountain valleys, natural creeks and great old farmhouses. If you pick up the “Barn Quilt Tour” brochure at the Ashe County Arts Council Gallery, you’ll get a guided route around Ashe County. Check out Pie on the Mountain, a great pizza shop in Lansing, or head to Todd and have lunch or a treat at the Todd Mercantile. Rent bikes (and canoes and kayaks) from the River Girl along the level Railroad Grade Road.
This home is just barely over 30 minutes to the spectacular Grayson Highlands State Park. Beautiful hiking trails, historic cabins, and wild ponies make this a special place.

For the second time, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!- Timothy , Posted: 01/16/2023
We had a great time and loved the house!- Angela , Posted: 11/07/2022
Was clean, quiet and very relaxing place...- Myriam , Posted: 11/04/2022
The house is on a lovely spot on the river. The view from the porch is great. While a kayak would be very difficult to launch from there, Riverside Canoe is just 12 min. down the road. The property manager was quick to help with a problem. It rained quite a bit this week, but we had some sun. Enjoyed the fire pit and Jacuzzi. Would recommend.- Kim , Posted: 07/31/2022
My new favorite place to stay on the New River. We enjoyed just sitting on the covered porch listening to the river and the dogs loved the fenced area to play in. We will definitely be back again.- Melissa , Posted: 06/29/2022
While we were there for a sad reason (funeral), we were certainly grateful to find such a beautiful place to call home for a few days. The accommodations were clean, the home was lovely, and the views were spectacular. We would love to return when we can spend more time to just kick back and relax in those amazing surroundings.- Monica , Posted: 05/24/2022
Great fishing trip with buddies!- Byron , Posted: 04/25/2022
We had a blast. Only set back was the water from the well. Other than that the home provided all the essentials and the yard made it a hit for the children. The river was soothing to the soul.- Billy , Posted: 12/29/2021
What a beautiful scene! We loved it. Our niece and nephew visited while we were there! They also loved the property. We'd definitely use your services again. 10s across the board- Catherine , Posted: 10/30/2021
Had a great weekend with friends celebrating one of us having a 50th birthday. The rental is well equiped for cooking and having a good time for a group of 4 couples. The guys fished all day Saturday while the women had a good day shopping. We had a great time and plan to rent again in June. Thanks- Kevin , Posted: 10/11/2021
Really superbly appointed rental. Fantastic kitchen that is spacious and stocked with quality appliances. The house was immaculate-please pass that on to housekeeping staff. Fire pit gazebo by the river is an excellent addition to the property. Would be nice to have a wagon or cart of some kind to transport firewood or picnic supplies.- David , Posted: 10/11/2021
The house is awesome and the river access was great.- Robin , Posted: 08/31/2021
The house was very clean, the porch and river were so relaxing. Kids enjoyed playing volleyball and badminton. The hummingbirds greeted us each morning. The layout of the house was perfect for a family of six, with room to spare. We hike New River State Park, Mt. Jefferson and tubed in the backyard.- Kathryn , Posted: 08/13/2021
We rented the Mountain Magic Property for my father's 75th birthday and had a wonderful time. The people at Stay Blue Ridge helped make my dads day perfect!- Billy , Posted: 08/10/2021
We spent the weekend doing a whole lotta nothing and this was the perfect place for it. Great space, beautiful setting, and all the comforts of home. We are already searching for a time to come back!- Ashley , Posted: 06/15/2021
Lots of space, great yard for dogs.- Sarah , Posted: 05/17/2021
The property was exactly as described, for our group of nine people. Everyone had a bed end it was an outstanding place to bring our two dogs - Fenced in section right off the deck really makes it easy to know your dog is safe but with some freedom to wander.- Elizabeth J from Roanoke, VA, Posted: 04/07/2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The river is gorgeous and being able to sit on the swings, walk along the banks, and sit by the fire was lovely. We also enjoyed playing in the large yard. The house is large with plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch and the hot tub! We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and family. We brought all our food with us and stayed at the house. On our way home, we visited Mt. Jefferson Natural Area and hiked there--just beautiful!- Christina , Posted: 03/23/2021
We loved our stay here. We had 4 small children who loved having a separate play space/living area downstairs. The view is beautiful and the kids loved exploring the river and building a fire. We enjoyed the easy drive to West Jefferson. The hot tub was the perfect way for the adults to relax after the kids went to bed!- Amy , Posted: 03/16/2021
House was very nice had all the amenities we were looking for....only 15 mins from West Jefferson We want to come back when its warmer....- Melinda V from Boonville, NC, Posted: 02/23/2021
My family and i had a very great experience, love the place and the peace in the house, everything was very clean and organized. We feel like we were at home.
My Daughters love it- Yureiky H from Miami, FL, Posted: 12/29/2020
We rent this house for the week of Christmas and it was wonderfully decorated. The house is wonderful and the view of the river is awesome. would highly recommend this property.- Donna B from Cherryville, NC, Posted: 12/28/2020
The house was beautiful! Well stocked, extremely clean, perfectly represented. We will definitely be back next year!- Anonymous from Gaston, NC, Posted: 11/10/2020
We just lost our Daddy in September. This was a much needed retreat for our family’s. The house was great! Lean and most comfortable. We rested well ate well and relaxed. We enjoyed the river and the fire pit. We’ll be back!
.- Angela B from Durham, NC, Posted: 11/04/2020
We had a great time and the house was nicer than we expected. The backyard and river cannot be beat.- Mike C from Cary, NC, Posted: 10/13/2020
We took our grandsons for a few days away from homeschooling and called it a field trip. We fell in love with this home and amenities.
Beautifully furnished, spacious, and with a gourmet kitchen to cook our family's favorite meals!
Our little Jack Russell terrier loved the huge yard to run in.
We will definitely rent this property again.- Cheryl S from Calabash, NC, Posted: 10/04/2020
We had a great week at the cabin. We had everything we needed. The location is perfect and the river was a lot of fun.- Cindy K from Enterprise, AL, Posted: 07/08/2020
Me and my family spent 3 days here and never ran out of things to do.
Hot tub is huge and fit everyone comfortably. The kids loved S’mores at the fire pit next to the river. Current was very strong so bring life vests just in case. The rocks underwater are very slippery.
Overall we had a wonderful time and will definitely return here.
A fenced in pool would be my only recommendation.- Billy A from Saint Albans, WV, Posted: 06/15/2020
We had a great visit! The house was clean and had so much to offer! Tons of kitchen items which made our family meal prep a snap. Beautiful view of the River and mountains.- Anonymous from Cary, NC, Posted: 01/16/2020
great house, close to town
TV issues in living room- Nancy W from New Bern, NC, Posted: 10/23/2019
Very Nice accommodations, with a cool running river in the backyard!- Anonymous from Kannapolis, NC, Posted: 07/31/2019
My friend and I recently lost our husband's we needed a peaceful vacation...The house is beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were spacious. Back yard has a fire pit and swings under Gazebo next to a running river where I found peace I needed. At night along the river fire flies light up the mountain. The property was truly magical. I most definitely will come back when I need rest and relaxation. I would give this a 10 star rating but I see only A 5 star. Kim G and Linda M Belmont, NC- KimKim G from Belmont, Posted:
