What Past Guests Are Saying
Spanish Fort, AL
Great time...Wonderful cabin
This was a great cabin to spend a few days in. It had everything you could want. We were quite impressed with the thought someone had put into thinking through what you need. It was the most easy and convenient place we have ever rented. There was plenty of storage, places to hang garments, shelves to put items...large master bath with a good sized second bath. We loved the place. The neighborhood was quiet and the drive peaceful. The location was the only reason we give 4 starts instead of five. The drive never bothered us but if you had children that needed naps during the day, or you wanted to go eat lunch out then go back to the cabin it would take a little time. Other than that...great place to stay.
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 12/01/2013
Dear Ann, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. We are indeed a few miles away from the big cities. But we feel that is a blessing, coming back to the cabin after a long day to peace and quiet. There is a restaurant (The Hillbilly Restaurant) right here in town, where you can get a great breakfast and lunch, and its about five minutes away. We will be sure to put the menu on the fridge so folks will know. Thanks for your thoughtful review. Cathy and Mike

Awesome first time experience staying in a cabin!
Our trip to Tennessee which was in October 2013 will be a remeberable one for so many reasons. First one being the wonderful time spent at the cabin.Mike and Cathy go above and beyond to make sure that their guest feel welcome and comfortable. This cabin is super clean and feels like home away from home! There is nothing of need for it is equipped with everything that one may need. I, being a very festive person was so in awe with the holiday decor! Great job Cathy!!We want to thank you, Mike and Cathy for making our first time stay in a cabin a very wonderful experience!! We will be back! We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who is wanting to visit Tennessee! Thanks!!
David and Mary Lee
Our stay at Mountain Magic was fantastic. I have never stayed at a more relaxing, clean, convenient location. Mike and Cathy obviously care deeply about their cabin and their customers. From a great location to a beautiful decor to all the small touches that were included, Mountain Magic was a perfect place to stay to enjoy the Gatlinburg area.
Diane & Bob
It was a comfortable and relaxing experience in a beautiful sett
We were very impressed with the entire experience. The cabin was immaculate, spacious and filled with loads of well-coordinated country décor. The cabin was equipped with all the amenities necessary for our stay, even down to toothbrushes if needed! The cabin was located in the depth of the woods with breathtaking scenery, especially at sunset. I cannot think of anything that was disappointing. We enjoyed every moment and compliment Mike and Cathy on their attention to detail in making the cabin stay a very memorable one!
Exceeded our expectaions
We were amazed at the little things provided with the cabin rental. If you forget to bring something, you will probably find it in the cabin. We had 4 adults and were very comfortable with the spaciousness of the 2 levels. Sitting on the rear deck and watching the sunsets was terrific. I would recommend the cabin to anyone vacationing in the area. The personal contact with Mike and Cathy was appreciated.
Lois & Bill
One amazing Cabin!
Mike and Cathy have thought of everything for this cabin & for your stay. The home is so beautiful and located in a quiet area with awesome views. The deck with the hot tub, grill, rockers, and fantastic view was a wonderful way to spend our evenings. The bathroom with separate shower was much appreciated. There was just 2 of us so we didn't use the upstairs but it is so nice up there. The bed was so comfortable. We will be back. Thank you so much Mike & Kathy for renting to us.
John & Tammy
Can you say "Perfection" ?
I don't typically write reviews but in this case I have to make an exception. Mike and Cathy are awesome. You can tell they are very particular about their home. They clean the cabin themselves, and you can tell. A service is not a deep cleaner plus saves you 60 plus bucks on added charges for a cleaning fee elsewhere. They have great attention to detail and the decor in the cabin is beautiful. Beds are comfortable, smells great, and the location/view is perfect and breath taking. Just go to the Kroger at the end of the road back in town, grab some steaks, cold beer, and enjoy. Very peaceful, no traffic because the location is where the locals live. Get into park the back-way and avoid all the tourist traffic. I am a very particular person, and between my parents raising and the army I very attentive to detail, and you quickly see they are as well.
Don't continue to look, this place is perfect. If you have a large group, say more than 6, this is probably not your place. If you have a small family like us or 2 couples, and small kids, stop looking and get out your credit card.
Communication was awesome. Found out through conversation that Mike and Cathy are from the north (accent gives that away), but they are representation to southern hospitality at it's finest.
Mike and Cathy, well see ya next year. Next time we will meet and grab a beer.

Mountain Magic cabin is the best cabin I've stayed in. Mike and Cathy have thought of everything. The cabin is cozy, relaxing and comfortable. The whole experience from booking reservations to check out is easy and well thought out. Excellent job!
Magically Perfect Mountain Magic
Perfect Home for a get away, near to all, yet, quiet with great views !! We went with friends and had a very relaxing time together ! Would choose this home again for sure. Every attention to detail has been thought of, and the owners have made this home better than even home away form home !Highly recommend !
Kelly and David White
Mike and Cathy were excellent to work with; the cabin was amazing! Very clean and furnished wonderfully. They have even thought to include all of the little things that you often forget when going on vacation. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be staying in their cabin again.
Best Vacation Ever!
We had such a great time in the area and the cabin was wonderful. It was like being at home but with an amazing view! The cabin was very clean and well stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed visiting the national parks, Dollywood, Splash Country, and ziplining. The cabin has a great location, too. You are close enough to get to everything with a short drive but far enough to be away from it all. I think our family agreed this was our best vacation ever!
This beautiful cabin was the perfect place to retire at the end of our busy days of shows, Dollywood, Cades Cove, horseback riding at in Townsend, hiking to Laurel Falls, tubing, and so much more in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The location makes it so easy to get around, and was centrally located to all of the activities we were interested in. It was so comfortable and stocked with everything that we needed! The towels were incredibly plush! We grilled out one evening, and had many meals on the back porch looking out at the mountain view. The kids (7 & 9) really enjoyed the hot tub, and Mike was thoughtful in that he had adjusted the temperature lower (prior to our arrival) to accommodate! We all enjoyed the family movies and games. The pool is a very short drive down the road, but was well maintained, and the attendant was extremely friendly. You can also purchase pretty good food there (pork sandwiches (cooked there), nachos, hot dogs). The fishing pond was stagnant, but that didn't stop my husband & another guy that happened along from catching fish. The neighbors around the cabin are delightful. One while sitting in a rocker on her front porch, waved each time she saw us , and the other (a beekeeper)waved the occasional other car past when we stopped our vehicle in the middle of the road to chat with him! If you want a comfortable, cozy, authentic mountain experience, this cabin is tops! We couldn't have had a better vacation, and we certainly want to return to Mountain Magic the next time we vacation in Pigeon Forge!

Great relaxing vacation
We truly enjoyed our vacation in Mountain Magic. The view was beautiful from the spacious back deck with a whirlpool. The cabin was clean with all the amenities of home. The bed was really comfortable. A wonderful loft with a very nice bedroom/bath & game room. The location is great, close to the mountains, Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge. Looking forward to a return trip. I bet the view is beautiful during fall foliage.

Best Vacation Ever!
According to my 6 year old we had the "Best Vacation Ever!" at Mike & Cathys cabin. My entire family enjoyed our stay.
You can tell that this house is cared for by the owner. You can see it in all the little details that you wouldn't find elsewhere.
The house was spotless and the beds were super comfortable.
If we ever get back to the Pigeon Forge area I hope Mike and Cathy can accommodate us.
Perfect Family Cabin
This cabin was the perfect choice for our family. We had 3 generations with us, and there was something for all of us. The upstairs loft with the popcorn machine and games were perfect for my son. My mother enjoyed the reading material in the cabin while she rocked on the back deck. Thanks for a wonderful cabin for our vacation!
Mary & Ray Ward
Their cabin and help exceeded our expectations.
The reservation and check in/out was fast and simple. Mike and Cathy were always available to answer any questions before and during the stay. For those that don't care much for the typical steep curvy mountain streets, the cabin was easily accessible being only a few minutes from a main highway. We loved the view from the back porch. View was of the mountains and not of other cabins. Our 8 year old granddaughter was with us and was easily entertained with all the toys provided. There really wasn't anything that we did not like. The cabin and premises were clean and presentable. Cabin was well furnished and everything worked properly. You really don't have to bring anything except your clothes and food. This was our first attempt to rent a cabin. We were extremely satisfied and can't wait to use this cabin again.
Perfect place to stay in pigeon forge!
Mountain Magic is the perfect place to stay in the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area. Only minutes from everything yet secluded enough for privacy. The owners were amazing to rent from, and absolutely everything was provided. The cabin was super clean and perfect for our week. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend Mountain Magic to anyone.
Cabin was very clean and well equipped with everything one would need. Cabin was easy to find and Cathy and Mike were wonderful to work with. The cabin is located about 15 minutes from all the main attractions in pigeon forge. Very quiet and peaceful location. Close enough to everything.

Home away from home.
Everything we needed was there and ready to use. The cabin was decorated over the top and very comfortable. We have rented other vacations homes and none came with all the extras that were included at mountain Magic. I would highly recommend this vacation home to any of our friends. We had no trouble finding our way around and all information needed was available to us at the cabin.
Thank you for an amazing vacation with all the comforts of home.

Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains!
We found Mountain Magic Cabin a beautifully furnished, very clean & lovely decorated place to stay! What a nice surprise with all the extra amenities. We would never have found a hotel that could meet up to all the extras for the price!! A big thanks to Cathy & Mike for all their help for making our vacation a fun time!
Just Right in Every Way!!
We walked right in just like it was home! It was so easy to settle in. Plenty to keep kids occupied, Lincoln logs, saddle on back porch, foos ball, and more!! Hot tub was great! It was a beautiful drive to cabin and just the right distance from everything. We could definitely see why it's ranked #1 on trip advisor! Thanks to Mike and Cathy for a great experience!!
A wonderful getaway
My family stayed at Mountain Magic for a long weekend and had an excellent experience. The cabin was extremely clean and had everything you could ever need and more. We have two small children so the games, toys and movies upstairs was an added bonus. The hot tub and the views from the porch were fabulous- we spent a lot of time out there.
The location was convenient to both Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Parkway. Our only regret was only coming for a long weekend instead of a full week.
Thank you to Mike and Cathy for a wonderful getaway.
So relaxing I could barely force myself to leave the cabin to explore. Read my review on tripadvisor.com
Everything our family wanted and more.
Looking for just the right cabin online was overwhelming. There are so many choices and some cabins are, to say the least, less than nice. This was the only vacation I was getting this year and I wanted the cabin to be perfect. Mike and Cathy's Magic Mountain was just that, perfect. It had everything, great view, hot tub, wood inside and out, comfortable beds, fireplace, close to the G.S.M. national park, toys, movies, games, stocked kitchen and so on. It is in the very quiet Wear Valley in the foot hills and is only about 20 min. from the park entrance. Close to Pigeon Forge without seeing Pigeon Forge or hearing it at night. Which is very relaxing after being out all day. If you are looking for the perfect place for your family or group of 4-6 people, look no further just make your reservation now. I have been to the area several times but this is the first time I have stayed in a cabin. From now on there is no where else that I will stay. Don't make the mistake of thinking that you can find a place just a little better, you cannot. You can't top perfection.
Sugar Grove, IL
We Will Be Back!!
We have never rented a cabin that made us feel at home. We've stayed in many cabins in the Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg area and found this is the by far The best.
It was apparent the owners went out of their way to make us feel at home-- the comfortable bedding, decorating (bears) everywhere, the well stocked pantry, toiletries avail, to fresh baked cookies waiting for us on the kitchen table. The one true reason for this trip was to simply relax. We sat on the back porch for hours. Mountain air must have been helped-we slept more than we ever have at home.
Here are a few points: A washer & dryer with liquid soap with fabric softener for your use. The kitchen is fully stocked, the best I have ever seen. Plentiful white lush, plush bathing towels and wash cloths. There is a Tub/jacuzzi (items available but I did not use it). A variety of books & Dvds in the bookshelves. The bathroom wall cabinet has many necessities you may need such as aspirin.
The only negative was the master bed. For women (like me) it might be a challenge to get into and out of this luxurious bed without the added step-stool. It is high.
If you have any problems about the cabin the owners tele number has been left for you, they call back within minutes. We felt fortunate to stay here and hope to come back again...Sit back and relax: The back porch view is amazing.

A peaceful setting in a beautiful area
We enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful stay in Mountain Magic cabin in Wears Valley, TN the week of March 17. The cabin was outfitted with everything one would need and then some. We hope to return in the near future.
3rd time is a good as the 1st
This was our 3rd time to stay in Mountain Magic. We find it to be very comfortable, clean and full of personal touches unlike any other cabin we have used in the past.
Cathy & Mike go out of their way to make you feel super comfortable. I would recommend this vacation spot without hesitation!

We could not have scripted a more perfect getaway. Peaceful, private, and exceptionally appointed. Great bedding, good towels (the important stuff!)...Micheal and Cathy definitely know how to treat a guest. We make it to the area about once a year or less... the first cabin I would go back to!
Wow, what an amazing cabin retreat!
From the moment our family arrived to Mountain Magic we felt at home in this well kept cozy cabin. The owners are so kind and really go out of there way to make this a very special place!
Phil and Claudia Butler
The truth is in the staying.
Everthing we read about in Trip advisor was true. We stayed three nights and enjoyed every second of it. Cathy and Mike have thought of everything. The cabin was just right, cozy with a roomy kitchen. Clear nights with a moon is amazing. The tourista areas are ok but this cabin in Wears Valley will make you almost forget about them. We will stay here again. Phil and Claudia Butler
The service from Mike and Cathy was great. The cabin included all amenities needed during our 4 night stay. The cabin location was great for travel into the park, to Townsend, to Gatlinburg, to Pigeon Forge, to the Biltmore Home in asheville, NC, and to the Tail of the Dragon on us 129.
The cabin was relaxing for all at the end of each day.
We look forward to returning in the future.
A wonderful experience!
I found this cabin on the internet along with many others, I kept going back to it and
booked it by the description and the pictures. It was everything it says it was and more.
The location is great, the decor of the cabin is beautiful, the porch and back deck are
so nice. Everything about the cabin is so comfortable I most certainly would book again
and recommend it very highly. Thank you Mike and Cathy for sharing.
Thompsons Station, TN.
When our family, which included our Slovakian exchange student, planned a trip to the Smokey Mountains, we chose Mountain Magic. The cabin was absolutely incredible, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Our student said he could stay there for a year.
The mountain scenery was stunning with private surroundings.
The location is centrally located between the National park, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge.
Mountain Magic was a wonderful home away from home and we will definately stay when we return to Gatlinburg. Also, Mike and Cathy are great to work with and are available if you need anything or have any questions.
Jerry & Susan
One word, actually . . . Awesome!
Mountain Magic is a beautiful cabin, and our stay there was awesome! It was so comfortable, quite, and relaxing. Loved all the "special" touches Mike and Cathy put into it to make it feel like home for travelers. It is far enough off the beaten path to be secluded, yet close enough to all the activities of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There is absolutely nothing we didn't like about Mountain Magic. We will definitely recommend it to our family and friends who are planning trips to Tennessee.
Tom and Linda Albano
Peaceful Mountain Vacation
We spent 4 wonderful nights at the cabin. It is such a beautiful location, peaceful and quiet. There was nothing but our clothes and ourselves that we needed to bring to make ourselves welcome. It was so welcoming and you felt like you were at home!
Wow and then some!
My husband and I stayed at Mountain Magic for a week in September 2012. This is an excellent cabin to rent. The owners, Mike and Cathy, have tastefully decorated and stocked the cabin with anything you could possibly need while on holiday. In fact, it's more of a home than a cabin. It was obvious upon entering the front door that Mike and Cathy take great pride in ownership of their property.
The location was perfect, as we spent most of our days exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 'Back Door' directions to get to the park were much appreciated.
If you are looking for a relaxing, serene place to stay, consider Mountain Magic. You won't be disappointed.
Loved our stay!
Better Than advertised!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain Magic, and it's easy to see why it's rated #1. The pictures don't do it justice, and every possible amenity has been provided by Mike and Cathy. The cabin was perfect, the weather was perfect, the view was perfect, and we can't wait to go back.
Beautiful cabin getaway!
We enjoyed Magic Mountain...a great and cozy cabin with lots of amenities. It was very easy to cook meals with the grill and well stocked kitchen. Everything was clean, well maintained and convenient to town, the various nature trails and all the TN sights to see! We loved the screened in back porch and hot tub. Easy to see why it's rated 5 stars! Thanks for a great stay!
Greg and Marsha
The cabin was perfect for our family for four. Conviently located to activities in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Park. We were busy everyday and it was wonderful to come back at night and enjoy the lovely cabin. The deck was great for grilling out, relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the view. Hope to come back someday. Very nice and clean cabin with many extra's included. Can't go wrong renting from Mike and Cathy.
The Talley Family
Wonderful cabin very clean!
My family rented this cabin in august 2012. This has to be the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The cabin is just the right distance away from the busy areas but close enough to do excursions. We loved it!
A great and relaxing place. Lots to do or do nothing.
Everything here is as described-- well cared for, clean, quiet, nice view, and easy access to the Smoky Mountain National Park, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and other area attractions. The cabin is well supplied with all you need (and more!).
North Olmsted, OH
Great family get-away!
What a great cabin for a family vacation! The pictures that were on the website were exactly like the cabin in person. Home was very clean and you can tell lots of love was put into the cabin. All the little extras the cabin had were a plus(paper products, soaps, condiments). Lots to do around the area, hiking to waterfalls, driving through Cades Cove. We also rented a pontoon boat on Douglas Lake. I would rent from these owners again!
I didn't want to leave!
Some friends of ours recommended this cabin to us. They said it was really nice and a good location. Upon arrival "nice and good location" doesn't do this wonderful cabin justice. I'll be going back and for a longer stay this time. I don't have anything bad to say about our stay at all. This cabin is everything you would want it to be.(besides being yours) Mike and Cathy were awesome and great to deal with throughout our experience. Can't wait to go back!!!
Perfect Place for Rest & Relaxation!
From the moment we walked in the front door, we knew we were going to love staying at Mountain Magic. The cabin is incredibly clean and everything is in perfect working order. We have stayed at cabins in the past when ice makers didn't work and the owners didn't even have ice trays! All we had to bring was our clothes and some food! Mike and Cathy have made it super easy to check in and out, and even though we never met them in person because we stayed busy most days--they were lovely to talk to on the phone--checking on us to make sure we arrived, and at the end of our stay to make sure we had no problems. The beds were super comfortable.
We so enjoyed the hot tub on the back porch in the evenings and having our coffee on the back porch in the mornings and watching the mist rise over the Smokies! It was definitely the best vacation we have had in a long time.
Mike and Cathy give you a list of things they like to do in the Smokies, and I think we did everything but one on the list. Great suggestions!
We will definitely be back--just have to book early. So glad we found this place. It was definitely what we needed!
Perfect Family Getaway!
We brought our 3 kids, ages 10, 6, and 4, to Mountain Magic, after reading excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed!! From the moment we stepped in the door, we felt at home. The cabin was immaculately clean and decorated, but not with so many fragile things that I had to worry about watching the kids' every move. We were all very comfortable and the kids loved having the upstairs as their "own" area. The second my 6 year old found the huge container of "Lincoln Logs", he declared that this was the best place to stay, ever. We loved spending time on the back deck. Because it is covered, my husband and I were able to sit on the deck late one evening and watch a lightening storm come over the mountains...what a neat experience!
The Wears Valley area is so peaceful, it was so nice to return to the cabin after busy days of shopping and hiking, and just relax on the deck. The "Scavenger Hike" book we found in the cabin was a nice touch, we took it into the park and had an adventure with the kids...and heard from other hikers that we had just missed seeing a black bear!
We loved our stay at Mountain Magic, and if we return to the area in the future, this will be our first choice for sure! Thanks, Mike and Cathy!!
Nice & Cozy!
We had a great vacation at Mountain Magic. The cabin was clean & had everything we needed. There were lots of games & books for the kids in the loft area to keep them busy. Great location, close to everything yet private. The only request was our daughter wished there was a tv in the guest bedroom. We will definitely rent this cabin again. Owners very nice & easy to work with and respond promptly to any questions.
Glutton for the Smokies
Very comfortable and relaxing.
Our family always enjoys the Smokey Mtn. area and we visit 2 to 4 times a year. We have a small list of places that we try to stay at when available. After finding that our small list of three wasn't available we began a reluctant search for someplace else that would live up to their review and photos. Luckily we came upon Mountain Magic during our search.
Being very reluctant to stay in new places we decided to give Mountain Magic a try and were we glad that we did. This place is everything it says it is and more. When we first walked in it felt like a second home instead of a vacation rental. Everything that we could imagine that we might need was taken care of down to most simplest of things. We sleep with a fan at night and always take one with us, but to our surprise they had two in the cabin. The only problem that I can even think of is having to reserve so far in advance, because this place is often booked. We were lucky to find three nights open on a short notice. Definitely on top of our list of places to stay in the Smokey Mtns.
Can't be beat!
Perfect place to stay in the area.
This cabin is the has everything you need to make your vacation perfect. The property is well maintained, nicely decorated and the perfect location away from the crazy area attratctions but close enough to get to do the attractions. Thanks for the great stay at the cabin
Avi and Nadine
Had a great time in a lovely cabin
We spent the first week of June in this lovely cabin. The cabin was clean, well equipped and was very suitable for a family of 5.
The cabin is a little out of the main town in the area (Gatlinburg is about 20-25 minutes away). We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere so we see it as an advantage. Other people might view the location differently.
We will come back.
Barb and Urb
Very cozy and comfortable, felt like home
We will Definately stay here when we go back to the smoky mountains. This was much more than we expected. Cabin was immaculate, spacious, everything in working order, beautiful views and a very easy drive to town. The owners have provided everything that you could possibly need with some very nice touches added. We loved it!! Barb and URB
It was a homespun comfortable getaway!
Very comfortable getaway with lots of decorating and stocked surprises. Travelled with a spouse, late teen and friend. We had a place for them and a place for us. Close enough but far enough away from the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge hubbub. Great proximity to smaller NW entrances to the Great Smoky Mountains.
Mountain Magic - a fabulous cabin!
We came to Pigeon Forge for a magic convention/competition, which my son-in-law was attending. We decided to rent a cabin instead of staying in a hotel. We definitely made the right selection by choosing "Mountain Magic". From the moment you pull in the drive...you feel at home. The cabin is simply beautiful! Mike and Cathy are a delight and take such pride in their cabin, which is tastefully decorated, very well equipped, and highly maintained. From the back porch, the view is so serene...the hot tub so inviting...and my favorite...rocking chairs! Everything is thought of...down to a binder complete with any and all information you may need regarding restaurants, attractions, maps, emergency care centers, all at your fingertips. If you are looking for a fantastic cabin, close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains, I highly recommend "Mountain Magic". . .you will not be disappointed. Oh..and my son-in-law won 1st place in the Close-up Magic competition...that was truly Mountain Magic! Thanks Mike and Cathy...we will be back!
Home away from home
You can't ask for a better furnished and cozy cabin. The cabin is great for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for family time (complete with all kinds of games and family friendly movies). I believe my favorite part is the "check-in" and "check-out" process. Unlike other rentals this time I didn't have to go to an office and obtain the key...which means I didn't have to be at a certain place at a specified time so travel to East TN was easy going and not rushed.
Mike and Cathy really care about their renters and they show it through promptly answering emails and being available if needed (no leaving unanswered voicemails). Thank you!!! We will be back.
Great place, great time
This is our second time in this. Anin and we found it to be even nicer than the first time. It is like staying in someone's home with lots of personal touches like popcorn, hot cocoa, and jelly already there. This place is quiet and serene and was exactly what we needed
Angie & James
This was our 1st time at Mountain Magic, and it won't be our last. It was like living in your own home with all the necessities provided but clean and everything in its place. The hot tub was nice and hot and the lighting on the back porch was a nice, simple touch. We enjoyed the decor, and the bed was very comfortable. I could have stayed a week!
Jim and Jen
Another wonderful stay at Mountain Magic!
This was our second stay at Mountain Magic and it was just as wonderful as the first time!
Our stay was January 4-7th. When we opened the front door we found the table set for dinner which just make you feel right at home the moment you arrive. Every detail has been thought through and everything is there for an absolutely wonderful stay.
From the hot tub on the back deck to the chocolates placed around the cabin, it's is just so comfortable and inviting. The beds are perfect and the surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful.
We took advantage of Cades Cove where we saw plenty of wild life. We also spent a day driving up into the mountains where we saw a mother bear and her two cubs! We did some unguided horseback riding up the side of a mountain which is located just a few minutes from Mountain Magic.
The entire trip was made perfect by Mike and Cathy and their attention to detail in preparing and providing Mountain Magic.
Thank you so much for making me look like a genius for booking your cabin!
Mike and April
This was our second Christmas to spend at Mountain Magic. Even though we did not get snow this year, the trip was amazing, and the cabin just perfect. We enjoyed the upgraded furniture, and Tv's. When we got there, the Christmas tree was lit up, and Christmas music was playing softly. It was a wonderful place for our family to get away from the craziness of the season, and just rest, and celebrate the birth of our Savior. Mike and Cathy just go out of their way to provide their guests with everything possible to be at home! We hope to be back soon!
Driving to the cabin was a bunch of what if's and having never seen the cabin, we wanted a nice place for Thanksgiving! But the moment we opened the door we knew we had the perfect cabin for Thanksgiving!!! This was also the cleanest place we had ever stayed!! My husband is a minister and needed a peaceful place after a very difficult week and we could not have asked for a better place!!! My college son even loved it!!! We are already trying to plan another trip to Mountain Magic, if we could, we would leave tomorrow!!!
Very nice cabin. Clean and roomy. Was able to navigate to anywhere within the tourists areas without problems. Would recommend this cabin to anyone. Owners are available within seconds of contact and are very helpful in all aspects.

Best cabin ever!
We had a wonderful time at Mountain Magic. From the time we booked the cabin, we had excellent customer service. All of our questions were answered and in a timely manner. The cabin was spotless and had all of the ameneties of being at home. Mike and Cathy were very attentive making sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely return and would recommend Mountain Magic to everyone.
The Cowgill Family
Mountain Magic is the best!!!
If you want to stay in a great cabin, located convenient to everything, this is it. We loved the way the cabin feels like staying at a friends's house. Everything we needed was provided. No detail was overlooked. The most favorite things were: pet friendly, decorated for the season, extra special care to every detail and how convenient the cabin is to attractions. This was our family's first Christmas in the Smokies, but it will be our tradition now. We will definitely recommend this cabin to our family and friends. We plan to stay in this cabin on every visit. We have tried many other cabins but this is definitely the best. Mike and Cathy are like old friends and make the stay welcoming and convenient. (The beds are so comfy!)
I spent a very relaxing enjoyable stay at Magic Mountain cabin in Wears Valley, TN December 4-7. I was impressed from the moment we got out of the car and saw the porch with the Christmas decorations and when we opened the front door and saw the inside. It was very clean, cozy, and beautifully decorated for Christmas. The view from the back deck was awesome. The 3 days flew by and we did not want to leave. Will definitely stay at Mountain Magic again.
Another amazing stay!
Our second of many visits to the greatest cabins ever! Beautiful furnishings and spa like towels and bedding!
A second fabulous visit.
This was our second visit to Mountain Majic, and it was even more fabulous than the first. Quiet, comfortable, great value. Lots of new updates. Well-stocked kitchen. Close to the park while being able to avoid the crowds in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We'll be back.

An enjoyable and beautiful cabin vacation
This was such a welcoming place to stay. I've always wanted to have this chance to enjoy a stay in a cabin and this was it. So beautiful, all the cabin decor with touches of fall beginning at the driveway entrance and all through the inside. It was so clean and had such a warm feeling. The location was very easy to get to. There were many enjoyable attractions in the area. A great place for families to gather and share time. The deck on the back had the most beautiful view of a mountain sunset. We just couldn't get enough of that view.
Thank you Mike and Cathy for such a wonderful experience with our family this October 2011.
The cabin was everything I expected and then some
My husband and I recently retired and decided on a vacation to the Smoky Mountains. After reading Vrbo reviews we picked Magic Mountain. It was everything we had thought it would be, and then some.
I am skeptical of hot tubs but I had no problem getting in the one at Magic Mountain. Mike and Cathy have left no stones unturned when it comes to making Magic Mountain feel like it was our home. Although I wish the weather would have been a little better, it was great to have a very clean and comfortable cabin to stay in during the rainy days.
Thanks you for making our vacation a memorable one. Oh and by the way, we were able to see 6 black bears, most of the babies.
Elena + James
We had a great time in this beautiful cabin. We hiked in the park during the day, then came back and grilled our dinner and enjoyed the mountain view from the hot tub on the porch. Everything was so clean ( including the hot tub) and we found anything and everything we needed in the kitchen. We enjoyed watching movies from the DVD collection (Braveheart and Dances with Wolves) and eating the popcorn in the evenings. Felt like a true vacation!!! I recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great, clean, cozy, and relaxing place to stay in the local area.
Jeff and Kimberly Alexander
Our stay at mountain magic was wonderful
I dont know where to start, everything about our stay was great! Very clean, the views were beautiful, so relaxing and we felt so at home. I cant believe how they had thought of everything, including toys for our grandchild to play with. Sitting on the back porch brought back memories of my childhood, sitting there with the family listening to the night sound and taking in the views of the mountains was something I had forgotten, and to share it with my grandson was a true gift. We really didnt want to leave, but will be back. Thank you Mike and Cathy for sharing your cabin.
Back to Mountain Magic
Returning to Mountain Magic
This was our fourth time staying at this wonderful mountain retreat, Cathy and Mike do an outstanding job to make our stay perfect. All the little touches like the plush towels in the bathroom and hot tub area, and the well supplied kitchen which has everything you need to have a relaxing week in the Smoky Mountains. The cabin is warm and cozy and feels like home, every thing is so clean and cared for by Mike and Cathy. My daughter loves the upstairs bedroom it provides her with her own private retreat, and the beds are so comfortable we all slept like babies.
We all enjoy our evenings under the stars sitting in the hot tub on the back deck, even when its raining you can still enjoy yourself with this being covered by the tin roof. If you are not in the hot tub, you can enjoy sitting in the one of four rocking chairs and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We will return to Mountain Magic again and thank you Mike and Cathy for all the love and care you put in to create a special retreat for all of us.

Relaxing retreat near everything
After being detoured from the Caribbean by hurricane Irene we choose to visit Pigeon Forge, TN. We did the research and came across Mountain Magic. Having never been to TN we were not sure what to expect, but our luck had turned around. The cabin was clean and homey not to mention the amazing view! We were within 15 -30 minutes of everything allowing us to zip- line, white water raft, horseback ride, Dollywood, shop and see a show. The best part was returning to Mountain Magic to relax where we all had our own space. Mike and Cathy we will visit again -thanks for everything!
Jeff n Becky
Perfect Smoky Mtn. Cabin
This cabin is perfectly appointed with everything you could possibly need. Cabin is spotless, very comfortable and feels like "home"! Owners are very accessible and answer any questions in a timely matter. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again.
College Station, TX
Wonderful place to stay!
Magic Mountain Cabin was perfect for our first visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful view from the back deck of mountains. Cabin was super comfortable for the 4 of us, but could easily have accomodated 2 more. Best of all was the convenience to the National Park through a nearby backroad. Great place & very nice owners - no problems at all! Surely will visit again!
We enjoyed the cabin very much! This place had everything we needed and plenty more! All the details were thoughtfully planned and provided. We will definitely remember this place on our next trip to the smokies!
We thought the pictures looked nice before we went, but they really can't do Mountain Magic justice! Everything is taken care of, allowing you to focus on your vacation, whether that's hiking through the National Park, visiting Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, or grilling out and relaxing in the hot tub! No complaints here!
Thanks to Mike and Cathy! After looking at the website, we booked it thinking it looked nice. It's really nicer than we expected...the way it's decorated and put together just really made us and our 6 and 7 year old daughters feel right at home. Everything we needed. Really appreciated the binder of maps, restaurants and things to do. Thanks again. I've already recommended it to all my friends and family. Kirsten
first time in this area of USa cabin was perfect and hosts great
what can we say everything we hoped it would be, coming from the UK we travelled along way, but it was sooo worth it, the arrangements were easy no problems. The cabin was very clean and lovely views. Hosts were there if we needed them the area is fantastic and we will be back again. Thank you for living up to our expectations it was truly a wonderful holiday.
Kevin & Teri
The cabin was a great place to come back to for the evening after a day in the national park. It was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the back deck, having the option to grill or cook instead of eat out, and having plenty of space for the two of us to spread out. It was a much better value for the money than a hotel suite!
Villa Hills, KY
We had a great cabin!
Mountain Magic is a gorgeous cabin. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. My children enjoyed the time spent in the cabin as much as going out. We were very impressed with how clean everything was. We will definately be back.
Can recommend this enough
We had a great week in mountain magic. Cathy and Mike were great to deal with. the website does not do the cabin justice. It has everything and the location is great. I have three small children and they loved all the toys and books that were there. we never got around to the tv or dvd collection. Go - this is one not to miss and it will be great. Also plenty of bear spotting opprotunities - we counted 100. You will have to go to find out what I mean.
Refreshing and Revitalizing
The cabin was in a perfect location. Close enough yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. We found many ways to get from there to any of the locations we were wanting to go to. The lay out of the cabin was wonderful. The area was private enough yet there were neighbors. The hot tub was a great plus. Having a washer dryer was a great option to use along with the kitchen having everything you need to make a meal. The only thing we didn't like was the mattress on the bed. It was very uncomfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone. I hope we can come back real soon...saving up now!
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 07/17/2011
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, but sorry to hear you were not happy with the bed. If it was the feather mattress we will be happy to remove it on your next visit. We always appreciate feed back, good or bad because it helps us keep our guests happy and that's our top priority. Look forward to your coming back soon. Thanks, Cathy and Mike
Roswell, New Mexico
Wonderful place to stay.
Our stay at Mountain Magic was great. The location is perfect. It is very close to the national park. The cabin has everything you could want and then some. It is perfect for a couple or family. I would certainly recommend staying there and would stay there again if I get the chance to return. Even though it is in a rural residential area, it is surrounded by trees and seems so secluded and serene. The view from the back porch is amazing. It was so peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
Enjoyable stay - enjoyed the cabin
My family of 4 stayed at the cabin the first week of June. Mike and Cathy were wonderful to work with and were very responsive to our inquiries before and during our stay. They thoughtfully provided a horse swing for our young children instead of the hammock, which they loved. Mike and Cathy go above and beyond in providing not only basic utensils, plates and cookware, but also all household soaps and many condiments and seasonings which we appreciated very much.
The location is perfect - just a short drive to Pigeon Forge and a short drive to the Great Smoky Mountains N.P. The cabin is so peaceful and after enjoying the attractions in Pigeon Forge and the mountains, it was nice to come home each night to this beautiful cabin.
Jerry and Millie
Celebrated our 26th anniversary here!
I couldn't have wished for a better place to stay, the cabin was beautiful, clean, and had everything you need for a romantic weekend! From the hammock, to the hot tub, and jacuzzi and the beauty of the view of the mountains, we recommend this cabin for a couple for romance to a family just for fun! They had a furnished loft of games and toys and coloring books for familys with young children or teens. Very close to Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove and the Forbidden Taverns!
Sheree and Bob, and Indy
Absolutely the best ever, no, not one complaint, just perfect!!
Enjoying my 56th birthday with my wonderful husband of 20 years and also morning the 1 year loss of my mom, this retreat couldn't have been more special, from the beautiful decorations, the romantic sunset off the back deck, the comfort of the bed, to the great coffee provided by the owners, nothing went unnoticed. I truely will remember this stay forever...love love loved it!! And I could even enjoy my dog, Indy with us...thank you for the 'magical' cabin...the perfect place to be...
Home away from home
We were so impressed the first time we stayed at Mike and Cathy's home last year, we came back this year to stay longer. We were not disappointed. It is obvious that they put a significant amount of time and effort into making sure the "customer” feels at home. Even our kids, who are 8 and 10, truly enjoy staying at the cabin. I think Mike and Cathy work very hard to make sure the cabin is spotless and they use customer feedback to provide those little luxuries which may be missing in other properties. I think they really enjoy what they do and will do everything in their power to make sure your stay is enjoyable. I am sure we will be back.
The kids loved the house
We had a really nice stay at the cabin, even with a power outage due to really windy weather. But Mike helped us out with more battery lights when we just called him.
The Smoky Mountains, BBQ and the hot tub - we enjoyed everything during our stay.
Also the cabin was very, very clean.
Adirondack Mountains of NY
We love this cabin. It has everything we need and enjoy!!!
This is our third stay and we had another wonderful time. We love the cabin and it's location. We'll be back
Had an awesome time at Mike and Cathy's cabin. After having stayed in various other cabins over the years, I can say that this cabin was by far the best. Perfect location, beautifully decorated, and totally stocked with about anything you could need or want. Did I say clean? This was without a doubt the cleanest place I've ever stayed. Thanks Mike and Cathy for a great stay.
The Burrows Family
Home away from hoime
Great cabin. They have though of everything to make the stay better than expected. Our kids loved it as well.
Quiet, comfortable option near Smoky Mt. Nat'l Park
The owners of the mountain cabin rental could not have been more helpful during the entire process. Our family of five had plenty of room. We enjoyed the amenities and were refreshed by our time at the cabin. We hope to return some day.
Jim and Jen
Folks, if your looking for a perfect cabin in the Smokies look no further! Mike and Cathy have put their heart into this cabin. They should write a "how to" manual for cabin rentals.
Everything that you need is provided when you arrive. The table was set for two when we walked in the door which was a very pleasant surprise. The jacuzzi was warm and ready to go. The whirlpool tub had bath salts and chocolates set out on a tray spanning the tub. Everywhere you turn the personal touches where there making our stay absolutely perfect.
You can watch the sun set over the mountains off the back porch while sitting in the jacuzzi. The location is within a quick ride to everything including Cades Cove, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. However, it is just far enough away to make it very peaceful, quiet and private.
My wife and I said over and over again to each other that "this place is so great"!
I will be back with the family. Every little detail has been thought through by Mike and Cathy to make your stay incredible.
Thank you for making our time in the Smokeys so wonderful.
Grand Rapids, MI
This was a return trip to this wonderful getaway. As before, nothing was forgotten.
The view is beautiful from the cabin, but Cades Cove, which our hosts recommended, was breathtaking. Our hearts were full.
There is such a difference in an establishment that is privately owned over one that is owned by a corporation.
We felt like we were being taken care of by someone who knew us well and wanted to treat us in the best way posssible.
We ran out of dishwasher detergent, and literally, within minutes, some was delivered to us.
This is our home away from home, only better. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to stay at such a wonderful place. All of our kids, ranging from 13 to 21 continue to talk about how much they love it here.
I hope to return again and again. We are blessed to have discovered Mountain Magic.
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 03/14/2011
Dear Fern, thank you for such a wonderful review. You and all of our guests have treated our cabin so well, and for that we are most thankful. We work hard to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, and we are happy to hear that you appreciate all of our efforts. We look forward to seeing you next year. God Bless, Cathy and Mike
Wonderful experience I'd like to repeat.
Mountain Magic was just that-- a wonderful cabin in the mountains that the owners obviously love and have put a lot of thought and special effort into. The view, conveniences, cleanliness and furnishings were wonderful -- and it is located near all kinds of fun things to do for all ages. Would certainly recommend it to others.
Monica, John, and Caleigh
Our stay was so relaxing and peaceful - just the getaway we needed! Kathy and Mike thought of everything. We requested a list of must-sees and they provided a list of about 10 suggestions ranging from hiking to an auto tour through the Smokies. We felt like the cabin was set up just for our three year old; she had the best time with the coloring books and games. This is the perfect vacation place for a couple or a small family.
Plant City FL
Wow!! Words can not discribe our visit but I am going to try!! We arrived to the cabin with out a bit of trouble. The moment we walked through the door we were in heaven. The cabin was decorated with a real Christmas tree and Beautiful Decor. The cabin was so cozy, we felt right at home. My kids loved the loft there were games, darts, movies, coloring books and much more to keep them busy. The beds were wonderful. Mike and Cathy are wonderful to deal with, it was a Stressfree stay!! We will be back in the future!!!
Mike and April
Mountain Magic lives up to its name!
We had a wonderful Christmas at Mountain Magic Cabin. Cathy had the place decorated beautifully for Christmas, down to a live Christmas tree. The feather bed was so warm and cozy, and the hot tub was just heavenly. We had snow on Christmas which made it even more magical. We loved our experience, and hope to return in the summer.
We had a wonderful time. It was the perfect place to spend Christmas with my family. We loved how the cabin was so beautifully decorated for Christmas. We will be back.

The cabin was very clean. I would have enjoyed more room in the kitchen for my groceries, and more counter space(take out that microwave,put it under range or counter). I also would have enjoyed more space in the bathroom to put our personal things,(too much country stuff setting on shelves, etc.) And how can you take a bath with all those things you have to move to get to the tub, I just said heck with it and took a shower. It was very private and we enjoyed that. The valley is very pretty.
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 11/30/2010
Dear V... sorry you did not enjoy your time at the cabin. We will take your suggestion and remove the micro from the counter and put it on a small table. Most of the cabins in the Smokies have small kitchens so counter space is limited. As for the bath, there are two small tables and a cabinet for your personal use along with two drawers in the vanity. As for the tub, I am not sure what you had to move, there is a small accesory tray on the tub and all you had to do was to pick it up and move it. Perhaps you would be better suited in another cabin for your next visit. Sincerely, Cathy and Mike
Marsha C. Burkes
It was great!! Do you have any bigger ones so next year we can bring our whole family? would need it to sleep 13-15 people.
Blake and Rachel
Couldn't ask for more!!
Mountain Magic is the perfect place for a quiet getaway in the Smokey's. As soon as we pulled up we knew this vacation was going to be one to remember. It was decorated so cute for fall, inside and out. Anything and everything you could possibly need on a vacation was provided for us. The look and feel of this cabin is exactly what you imagine it to be from looking at the pictures and reading the reviews. The view from the back deck is amazing, especially at sunset. There's not much else to say about this place except if you're searching for somewhere to stay, book Mountain Magic now!! You won't regret it!!
Max and Shirley Lance
Down Home feeling
What a wonderful retreat. Comfort and that "homey" feel the minute you walk in the door. From the porch light on, seasonal decorations, table already set and a hot tub to watch sunsets from the rear deck, on and on the special touches go. If you stay once you will want to go back. Mike and Cathy are perfect hosts and provide southern hospitality at its essence. We will be back and hopefully sooner rather than later.
We all had a great time at Magic Cabin, it was like home from home, very comfortable. It had everything we wanted. The views were lovely and sitting in the hot tub looking out over the views was a great experience.
We would recommend this to anyone in the UK to try.
Little Piece of Heaven
One word - Amazing...from the location to the great property owners who thought of everything, we'll defintely be back and will tell all our friends.
Steve and Mary
Great stay in a great spot
Magic Mountain cabin was a great place to stay. Cathy had the fall decorations out and they looked great. Very clean and the cabin is in a great location. Very well furnished.
When we arrived we felt like we were wrapped in a warm blanket
The decorations made the cabin feel so homey and warm. The view was remarkable and the deck was so enjoyable in the mornings and evenings. Everything we could have thought about needing was provided. Mike and Cathy were so thoughtful. Location was perfect--easy to get to, just far enough out to be away from the crowd but close enough to get to the action in a matter of minutes. We will be back.
Pam and Bob
Mountain magic is a comfortable cabin with all the amenities in
Mountain Magic is a clean, comfortable well appointed cabin. It was the perfect place to return to after a day of sightseeing and hiking. Our stay was made even more perfect by the personal attention of Mike and Cathy. I would highly recommend this cabin to both couples and families. A great mountain getaway. Thanks Cathy and Mike.
A wonderful cabin in a wonderful place. Truly Mountain Magic
A great place to call home in the Smokies. Very clean and secluded as well as being convenient to Pigeon Forge and the National Park. Cathy and Mike were very generous with all the "extras" that truly made it a home for our vacation.
Family vacation - wonderful time together!
We stayed at Mountain Magic the week before Labor Day 2010. What a great time to visit the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area. The weather was perfect and trafic was low. We brought our dogs and they loved to be with us on vacation as did our kids (11 and 12 - both boys). The cabin was magical.. we haven't been so close as a family as we were when we were there. There is something truly magical about the place, the view, the area. We will return. As for the cabin, we couldn't have asked for a nicer place. It was clean, the perfect size, so comfortable, full of area information, and the owners are wonderful. They made sure our stay was the best. I can't say enough except that we hope to be back. Oh, and we did see a bear in the park near the Elkmont area. That was awesome! Aaa+ from all of us. Thank you so much!
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Mountain Magic stay was truly magical
We loved our stay at Mountain Magic. This large, super clean cabin has all the comforts of home, minus the stress - plus many extras for kids and mom and dad. We enjoyed the beautiful mountain view off the huge back porch, without having to drive 20-30 minutes up a mountain road. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient to everything. We'll be back for the snowy season!
Mark and Kym
This cabin is rustic but with all the comforts of home. It is in a beautiful scenic area that is close to both Gaitlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Great place for families with kids.

Scenic beauty, and peace and quite
Mike and Kathy didn't miss a single thing from washer and dryers to binocculars for bird watching. We immediatly felt at home and also very pampered at the same time, we loved it!
Des Plaines, IL
Wonderful place to spend time, relax, enjoy nature, enjoy family
Our family spent two nights at Mountain and Magic, but we wished we could have stayed longer. It was great! Very clean, comfortable, perfect for a family- We hope to come back again soon. Cathy and Mike were extremely helpful giving us streamlined suggestions of what to do in the Park. With their suggestions, we visited some great spots. Thank you!
Rested and Relaxed
Home away from home!
The location was perfect...close to all attractions, easy entrance to the park..yet tucked away on a quiet street overlooking the mountains. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. You feel like a family guest staying at someone's home. Beautiful decor, clean, well stocked. Even our teenagers loved the vacation..wireless internet, cable TV, and the hot tub! Our nine year old had plenty to keep him busy..foosball, darts, toys, games. My husband and I especially liked the huge rear deck to come back to after our days of activities in the park. Cathy and Mike are wonderful hosts, they thought of everything!
King and Lewis Family
We were in awe of this beautiful mountain cabin from the very first moment we arrived. It is obvious that Mike and Cathy shower much love and attention to even the smallest detail. The amenities, view, decorations, and comfort were outstanding to say the least! Our little 41/2 year old was so happy with all your little bears and the loft play area.
Thank you so much for such a memorable and happy stay at Mountain Magic Cabin.
Hope to return !
The King and Lewis family from Dallas, Texas

Our family enjoyed staying up late and sitting out on the porch. Our teeenager would even hang out with us because he could connect to the Wi Fi! The view was beautiful anytime of day, or night.
Danny and Brenda S
when we opened the cabin door we where just blown away with it
There could not be enough space for me tell everyone how beautiful this place is--it is serene-has everything you need-it was so clean-and the decor was just delightful in every way! I never met Cathy and Mike but spoke on the phone and via email-but they always answered my questions promptly. You have a fantastic mtn view off the back porch-and do not forget the hot tub!! 5 strars for us-Brenda and Danny S. Arkansas
The cabin was wonderful! When we walked in the door, we felt immediately at home. Our two kids had a great time playing darts and foosball up in the loft. The hot tub was a family favorite, also. We hope we can come back next year.
St. Louis, MO
At home in the Smokies!
The cabin was a perfect base for our visit to Pigeon Forge, Gattlinburg, & the Smoky Mountains. Easy to find, beautifully decorated in a western/country decor, all the comforts of home, and located in a lovely setting overlooking the mountains. We hope to return soon!
Barb and Paul
Fun in the heat!
Mike and Cathy have a lovely cabin, and we enjoyed our week feeling pampered and relaxed. A wonderful bed in the master bedroom made for extra-restful sleeps. The back porch, itself, is worth the price of admission. The location is great, away from the hub-bub, but within 5 miles of a Krogers supermarket. (Runners/joggers, note: because of the excellent "get-away-from-it-all" location - a true asset - you will need to drive to the Krogers to find a safe place with sidewalks and shoulders to run.) Our 19-year-old son had plenty of private space in the upstairs bedroom and loft, and did his computer thing with the free Wifi, which worked as efficiently as expected in a private home. We recommend highly the cabin and Mike and Cathy as hosts.
Everything you could want!
Mike and Cathy have thought of everything that you could possibly need or want! The location was beautiful; away from the crowds, but a quick drive to the park or touristy areas. We had a great time enjoying all the amenities of the cabin: games, back porch, and of course the hot tub. We highly recommend Magic Mountain Cabin and will return soon!
Jan & Bob
Quiet and Peaceful
We enjoyed our short stay at your cabin. Our two mini-dachshunds adapted quite well, as this was their first time away from home. They liked their crate space in the cozy bedroom closet. We enjoyed walking on the road with them and the low traffic level in the quiet neighborhood. (We carried a Bounce to deter the bugs.) More grass space (in back) will be helpful. I've given all fives because overall, this cabin is very comfortable and accommodating. The thoughtful attention to detail was appreciated.
Mike and Cathy are great! Cabin is great! We will be staying here again and sooner the better. They have thought of ever little detail possible. We stayed for two days and we were still finding little things. Location is great and really 5 stars is not enough for this rental. Thanks again Mike and Cathy, keep up the great service.
Wendell and Jan Duncan
loved the cabin, amenities, location and view. Cathy has truly thought of everything. Very comfortable, clean, well decorated and very nice t.v.'s. Great screened in back porch although we didn't have time to use it. Will definitely go back.
Everything you need is there except food.
Great location, never far from anything in the area. Comfortable, homey with all the right touches.
Very enjoyable and comfortable
Cabin was in excellent condition and well stocked with anything we needed. We actually brought more items than needed. Place looks great adn has a nice cozy and relaxing feel. Was easy to get to all of the attractions in the area as well. Kids loved it and we all had a really good holiday weekend. Looking forward to our next trip and staying there again.
When can I go back?
If you want the convenience of town, but do not want to be caught in the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you. While the cabin is not in the heart of Pidgeon Forge, it's only a few minutes away. There are a couple of cabins on either side of Mountain Magic, but you don't feel crowded; you still have privacy. The cabin has three t.v.'s hooked to satellite, it's extraordinarily clean, it's comfortable, the air conditioning works great, and there's a gas fireplace ready for use. There are ceiling fans throughout the cabin. The two things I would change about the cabin are allow more accessibility to the nice, large back yard and remove the carpeting upstairs. The two items listed above are very minor and should not distract from the experience of the cabin. The owners, Mike and Cathy Pietrzak, are excellent communicators. They are very accessible and friendly. Overall, I would consider re-booking at Mountain Magic and I would recommend Mountain Magic to my friends.
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 05/22/2010
Dear Beverly, Sorry you didn't like our new carpeting, we too like the hardwood floors but felt the noise level from the loft would be softened if we had carpet up there. We will be installing stairs to the back yard soon. We just have to find a time when the cabin is empty which isn't often. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back soon.

The cabin was clean, good location, many personal touches - just like home!! Very comfy beds too. And the owners were so accommodating. We will definitely return if we're out that way again!
Absolutely fantastic place to stay
We were very pleased with the contact made before, during and after our stay at Mountain Magic Cabin. Mike and Cathy were more than happy to help with everything we needed to make our decision on where to stay. The cabin is absolutely beautiful - from the moment you walk in until you have to leave. Everything needed for a vacation rental was available and in great working order. We enjoyed being up in the hills away from the busy "city", and yet close enough when we wanted to be. The drive through the mountain is wonderful. We loved sitting on the back porch, grilling dinner, and watching the birds floating through the air. It was also great to sit in the hot tub relaxing and talking about all we did during the day and what to do the next day. Thanks to Mike & Cathy we enjoyed everything about the cabin; we hope to return soon!

Our favorite place to stay in the Smokies
WE have stayed two different times at Cathy and Mike's cabin. It is easy to book a stay, all transactions are handled in a very professional way. When you get to the cabin you will find it appointed very nicely with all your needs considered. It has a warm homey feel and you immediately relax and enjoy the area. You will love the back porch and the view from there. We spend early AM and late PM watching a colony of Buzzards come and go from their roost.
We have never wished we had more equipment in the kitchen or anywhere. It seems to be well thought out and it has always been clean and I like the list of things to do before leaving so I feel apart of the upkeep of the cabin.
The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. We enjoyed walking the dog in the area. It is a great location for getting to Cades Cove and to enjoy the attractions of Pigeon Forge.
I would recommend this cabin for any family or for two couples traveling together.
We just returned from 5 days at Magic Mountain and it was wonderful. The setting was great and the view off the back deck was amazing. We loved the cool nights in the hottub and the cabin itself was so warm and cozy. The beds were so comfortable and overall the experience was so relaxing. We would recommend this cabin to anyone!!

Our Saty at Mountain Magic Cabin
We just got back from a long weekend at Mountain Magic Cabin, and it was the very best!
The view was spectacular from every direction, and the owners thought of everything for our comfort!
The decorating was so charming; every tome we looked around, there was a new little "treasure" to be discovered. Even the sheets on the bed, and the bed itself were very comfortable.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone, whether on a honeymoon, or as a family.
It was a real blessing to our family.

We experienced Mountain Magic!
This was a wonderful place to stay for a long weekend. We celebrated Valentine's Day and President's Day in the super clean, super nice cabin.
The owners have added so many special touches that make it a superior experience. One nice surprise was the level driveway and parking area, a huge plus when you are traveling during the winter months. You literally park right at the porch steps. 2 distinct bedrooms that are decorated beautifully, a fully equipped kitchen, a great covered rear deck, all very nice and clean.
I would 100% recommend this cabin for anyone.
A WONDERFUL LOG CABIN EXPERIENCE
WE ENJOYED OUR 4 DAY STAY IN MOUNTAIN MAGIC VERY MUCH, AS DID OUR 2 GRANDSONS AND OUR LUCY (MINIATURE SCHNAUZER). THE CABIN HAD EVERYTHING THAT YOU COULD NEED AND THEN SOME. WE ENJOYED THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS BOTH INSIDE AND OUT. WE WOULD LOVE TO COME BACK IN THE LESS COLDER MONTHS SO THAT WE COULD GET MORE USE OUT OF THE SPACIOUS BACK PORCH WITH THE GREAT VIEW.

What a wonderful cabin! Location is great! Right off the parkway, and in a residential area for the full TN experiance! Not in a resort where you are on top of other cabins. VERY CLEAN!!! Wears Valley is abosolutly gorgeous. You are litterally tucked in a valley with the Great Smokey's all around you. Every little touch has been added for an easy trip! And Mike and Cathy are wonderful! Very easy to work with - and they gave us a alot of useful information to use during out stay!
Thank you Mike and Cathy - we will be back!

Mike and Cathy thought of everything! Except for our food, everything was provided. The cabin was nicely decorated for Christmas, inside and out, even a christmas tree. The beds were very comfortable, lots of blankets provided, which we didn't need because it was so warm and cozy. The new gas fireplace was thoroughly enjoyed, looks just like a real one. The cabin was exceptionally clean and maintained. Loved the porches and the hot tub, we even cooked out on the gas grill.
We couldn't have picked a better location. Just out of the way enough that you aren't too far from Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge but far enough away that you aren't in the hustle & bustle of things. We highly recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to get away for a little rest and relaxation.
I have stayed at Mountain Magic twice now, and I can not rave about your cabin enough! The view is just that.. it’s magical! The décor both times we’ve stayed there has been intricate and fitting for the season. Your cabin is family friendly with plenty of space while keeping the romance with that beautiful fireplace and hot tub! It truly feels like a little home away from home! You guys have done a wonderful job with your cabin and all of the accommodations were perfect! thank you so much, and we will return!!

Dear Liz, thanks for taking the time to put in a review. Cathy
Myself and 3 friends spent the weekend at Mountain Magic in Pigeon Forge. We had a wonderful time and the accomodations were excellent. Had several touches that really made you feel at home and very welcomed. It was very tastefully decorated and very well kept. I would like to thank Mike and Cathy for their hospitality. I would highly recommend MM to anyone. Thanks again.
Service from time we started checking about the cabin until we checked was very professional and friendly. We enjoyed the cabins roominess and location. Wish we had longer to stay will use this cabin again.

Finding Mountain Magic cabin was the best part of our vacation for my friend of 30 years and I celebrating our friendship in Tennessee. The home was fantastic in all ways, more than we expected or hoped for. We will definitely come back again.
You could not go wrong staying here. We so appreciate Mike and Cathy's cabin and all they do to make it such a pleasant experience.
All you need to bring are a change of clothes. Mike and Cathy have absolutely thought of everything. Yes I mean every single little thing. This was a wonderful place to stay. I hope that we are able to return and stay again. Everything was so clean and the decorations were spectacular.Great location. We truly enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much for all you did and for being so wonderfully nice.
very cozy and relaxing.
Enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Magic Cabin. Was warm and enviting(loved the fall decor)! Had everything we needed and not a bad view. Only thing we had issue with was the upstairs bed was a little noisey when you slept in it.(Qreaked everytime you moved)but the matress was very comfy. The upstairs tub had a slow drain issue but we plunged it and seemed to fix the problem. would definatley recommend to friends and family and hope to stay again soon. Thankyou for alowing us to use your cabin...
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 09/21/2009
Dear Stephanie, we are sorry about the bed, we have replaced it with a new bed and no more squeaks. The drain has also been cleaned. Anytime you have a problem at the cabin just let us know and we will do our best to resolve the problem immediately. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back to see us soon. Regards, Cathy and Mike, owners.
Peace in the Smoky's
Mountain Magic is very peaceful. We love staying there because it is just the right distance from all the attractions plus far enough to get the mountain feeling, get away from it all.
We have stayed there for three years now. Mike & Cathy have gone out of their way to make sure everything is there. I highly recommend Mountain Magic Log Cabin!
Mountain Magic Cabin
This was a wonderful place to rent. Very cozy and felt very much like home. Very well decorated. We loved the loft for entertainment for the kids. Even though they were older they enjoyed the private area. The grill and household items were great, this saved us alot of money on not eating out. It was so nice after a fun, busy day to come back to the private cabin and relax. The only thing that we missed was having a ready pool available. But we would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family. Thank you to Cathy who diligently got back to me each time I e-mailed her. We will not want to ever stay in a hotel again!
Response from Mike and Cathy Pietrzak owners Mountain Magic - 09/21/2009
We now have a public pool which is just minutes from our cabin. You can swim all day for $5.00. They also have several catch and release fishing ponds on site , $5.00 for the day. There is a great snack shop at the pool and the surroundings are beautiful.
We had a wonderful time. The cabin was easy to find and far enough away from the busy part of PF to enjoy the quiet. We especially enjoyed the back deck where we watched the clouds come and go around the mountain tops. We played a game of checkers most every morning and evening. Everything was there for us and it felt like home.
Very comfortable! Hope to do it again sometime.

Frequent Gatlinburg Visitors
Mountain Magic was such a wonderful cabin for our Gatlinburg Vacation. The last night of our stay, we had planned to take a scenic drive, but Mountain Magic was so beautiful and relaxing we decided to enjoy the home and it's surroundings instead. I would highly recommend staying at Mountain Magic if you are looking for a very relaxing environment for your vacation.
Awesome and relaxing!
After booking our vacation months in advance, our booking fell through the morning of our vacation. I frantically called Mike and Cathy and they bent over backwards helping us out. The cabin was exactly what we'd imagined, and the rental was smooth as silk. We'll definitely be a repeat customer...Thanks again!

We loved the cabin and the experience
Your Cabin suited us just perfectly. It was easy to find any essential and it was decorated very attractively. It was clean and comfortable and in a very nice location. We would recommend it to any friends. We may try to get back for another visit.
