Offering unparalleled tranquility and solitude, this immaculate log cabin, nestled on 8+ acres within the private Gateway Mountain Nature Preserve, is under a 30-minute drive to the shops, restaurants, and breweries in the charming small towns of Old Fort and Black Mountain!

On the main level, step into a spacious living room with a 75" smart TV (streaming only), before your eyes are drawn to the fully enclosed sunroom with long-range mountain views, including views of towering Mt. Mitchell. Also on the main level are two traditional bedrooms, one with a King-size bed and one with a Queen-size bed, a full bathroom, a powder room, and a laundry room. Additional sleeping space is provided with a twin-size bed located just off the family room. A well-equipped kitchen, complete with a water and food station for the furry traveler in your group, creates a home-sweet-cabin feel. The upper level is home to an open-air loft with casual seating and a primary bedroom with a King-size bed and en-suite bathroom.

The large windows with picturesque views along with the vaulted ceilings in the living room allow an abundance of sunlight to filter into the loft. Outside, the expansive deck provides multiple options for seating, including rocking chairs, bistro seating for two, and additional seating in the yard for a true front-seat view of the mountainsides beyond. Use the gas grill to whip up delicious summer favorites to enjoy together at the outdoor dining table over a glass of wine and great conversation. The fire pit, built with relaxation in mind, offers even more unparalleled views and is sure to inspire kids and adults alike to roast the perfect marshmallow. The newly added 3-person hot tub adds a touch of luxury to your private mountain escape and is the perfect spot to unwind after a full day of adventure!

Please Note: This home is pet-friendly with an additional fee. AWD or 4WD is required year-round. During the colder winter months, from December through March, icy and/or snowy road conditions and delayed snow plow operations are possible within the development. We also highly recommend travel insurance.

Parking up to 2 well-spaced vehicles allows for optimal turning and maneuvering, although the parking area can accommodate up to 3 vehicles. Overflow parking can be found along the lower driveway. No RVs, boat trailers, camping trailers, or trailers of any kind are permitted in the Gateway Mountain Community, and no parking is allowed on roadways or at gate entrances.

Lovely Weekend

Sent on 2023-10-09 by Katy

We recently stayed at Trail Magic for our Anniversary weekend. The home was perfect. It has incredible views that can be enjoyed throughout several rooms of the home. It's in a lovely rural Mountain Community with is quiet and full of wildlife. You are close enough to enjoy Black Mountain which we highly recommend. The town is clean, fun, full of shops and wonderful restaurants. And the locals are extremely friendly and welcoming, everyone passing by gives a friendly hello. This was our first time to the area and we will be back for sure.

Manager's Response

I'm so glad that you had such a great first visit to the area and congrats on the anniversary getaway! Thank you for this wonderful feedback. Glad to hear the stay was great. 

What a beautiful, peaceful home and vacation

This spacious home has an unmatched, gorgeous panoramic long-range view. Situated on a multi-acre lot, the quiet is a pleasant distraction from life's hectic pace.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your five-star review and recommendation of Trail Magic, Gloria! We're delighted that you had such an amazing stay and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and stunning long-range mountain views, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the area soon.

Trail Magic was as advertised. The view is as good as you will find. Very secluded location. The house is very nice. Once discovered it will be a rental favorite.

FAQs

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Trail Magic is located in Old Fort. This home is approximately a 30-minute drive to Black Mountain and Marion and a 45-minute drive to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Trail Magic is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Trail Magic is located in a gated community. You must go to our Old Fort Office at 243 Catawba Ave S to pick up your gate card. Driving directions to our Old Fort Office, along with access instructions will be sent out via email. Once you have picked up your gate card, you can proceed to the house. Please do not rely on GPS. We will provide you with driving directions to Trail Magic from our Old Fort Office. 

Trail Magic has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and select option 1, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE?

This home provides an outdoor fire pit. Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have a small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store. Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Trail Magic. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.
