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 Asheville

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.

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

This cabin is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I rented this cabin for a 4 night stay. We go to Asheville every year or two and usually stay in a hotel downtown. This cabin was a far better option! The location is awesome. So close to all the shopping and restaurants (about a 10 - 20 minute drive to get to any place), but being away from downtown makes the stay so much more relaxing. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms are really nice, the little kitchen has great appliances, the wood stove is so pretty when burning a duralog at night, and the porch is so relaxing to sit on and enjoy a glass wine while watching and listening to the river. And the owner is very pleasant. It was so nice getting to know him! We will definitely stay here again.

Slice of Heaven ~ We didn't want to leave ...

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal stay at this gorgeous home ! The setting was perfect for rest & relaxation and everything you needed was available ! We loved the location... close enough to everything ~ close to Biltmore, downtown, grocery store etc... We were fortunate to get to meet the owner who was just as spectacular and a truly gracious host. The home was furnish with class and character ~ we were greeted with a nice bottle of wine upon arrival. The couch & the beds were VERY comfortable and to hear the sound of the river in the background will lull you to sleep. Bathrooms are new and decorated top notch... The entire home had charm and contained eclectic pieces throughout ... very cool and unique. We did NOT want to leave so I am anxiously waiting to come back soon !!!
