About Lyn McFarland

Alex Poblet and Lyn McFarland own Asheville Bulldog Realty and have many years of experience in renovating homes. When this cabin, next door to our home, became available we jumped on the opportunity. Neglected for 10 years and un-lived in for the last 2, we knew the challenges. Every pipe had frozen and the only heat source was baseboard. We spent the summer ripping out bathrooms, refinishing floors, and adding our personal touches to this spectacular property. Over grown with invasive, non-native weeds, trees and vines our first step was to clean the land. The hardly visible river emerged and revealed the beautiful rapids and views you now see. We feel we are temporary caretakers of this magical piece of land. It brings us great joy to be able to share it with you.

Lyn McFarland purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Lyn McFarland chose Smoky Mountains

Stay here for a true mountain cabin experience with luxury amenities and a gentle mountain river just outside the door just minutes to downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

What makes this cabin unique

Just three minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway or ten minutes to downtown, we are an easy Uber ride to the attractions and restaurants in our beautiful city. River Rock Cabin is on a cul-de-sac paved road with easy flat access to the cabin. Designed with attention to every detail to make your holiday experience a feast for all your senses. The cabin has beautiful river views from the great room and lower bedroom. Allow the gentle sound of cascading water to lull you to sleep or into a lazy day dream. Our piece of mountain paradise will relax, rejuvenate and inspire you.

Perfect Asheville Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

With inlaws coming all the way from NH, we wanted a getaway that reflected the surrounding mountains as well as the artsy nature of Asheville. It needed to be private, but close to everything. River Rock Cabin was all this and more! The cabin combines the authenticity of a true mountain cabin with all the modern conveniences (the bathrooms are spectacular!). The flowing creek makes its own music, and the eclectic features and art add touches of whimsey inside and out. Did I mention the fire pit is a great way to end your nights? Making River Rock even more memorable (it that's possible) was the hospitality provided by owners. A bottle of wine was waiting for us upon arrival, and soon after, we met Lyn, Alex and their dogs, who couldn't have been more welcoming. They were full of helpful hints about where to go and what to do, and made us feel right at home throughout our stay. Thanks for providing the perfect hideaway guys! When in Asheville, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Lisa & Fred, Charlotte, NC

Beautiful Cabin Close to Town

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed the tranquil setting, million dollar views of the river and well appointed cabin. The owners were very friendly and easy to deal with. The cabin itself has been fully updated and was a wonderful accommodation. The only miss for us was the close proximity to neighbors and Asheville itself. Though accurately covered in the property description, we had it in our minds that the location was a bit more isolated. This proved to be both a plus and a minus. What it lacked in isolation, it more than made up for in convenience with a short drive to shops and the city.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Asheville. While we'd always heard good things about the destination, what made our stay perfect was this cabin alongside the Swannanoa River...a little slice of Heaven just minutes from everywhere we wanted to go. The care with which the owners updated this living space and the attention to detail clearly show. I actually chose to stay "home" one day just to soak in the beauty and to read on the deck. Each night we left the door from our bedroom open to the deck (screen pulled closed) so that the babbling of the stream was our lullaby. Thanks so much, Lyn & Alex, for providing this respite.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is special and Lyn and Alex have done a wonderful job making it homey. Just love the deck with the steam running by. But one thing I wish to comment on is how accommodating Ly and Alex are in meeting their guests' needs. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma made a visit to Asheville during our stay, knocking out power. Lyn was right on the scene with supplies to make our time without electricity much improved. I can't tell you how great it is to have the owners right next door and I guarantee you will get a friendly, warm visit upon arrival. Much thanks to Lyn and Alex! Oh, and we love Asheville. Enjoy.
