About Mike Carrick
Mike Carrick, the broker-in-charge of Carrick Properties Inc, is a full-time licensed real estate professional in North and South Carolina, a licensed general contractor, and one of the top-selling real estate agents in the area. He is an eco-certified broker and, more importantly, the only Transylvania County, NC real estate broker who has built his own solar-powered home. Mike designed and built his off-the-grid home in Lake Toxaway using mainly refurbished materials with an eye for conservation and sustainability. Nestled on the mountainside, the sleek, airy home runs completely off solar panels, well water, a high-efficiency wood stove, and propane. When he’s not in his Main Street office in downtown Brevard, Mike can often be found hiking, fishing, canoeing, or surfing with his daughter Gracie. His wife Melanie and he love to travel and shop for special finds for the cottages and the Lingerlong Project has eaten up most of his free time but he has really grown to love planting in his garden and adding to the overall landscape plan on the property. Lingerlong is a 5 house project and Melanie and Mike live on sight. Mike loves living the dream in Western North Carolina.
Mike Carrick purchased this House in 2015
Why Mike Carrick chose Brevard
This house and Lingerlong property in general was one of the areas first "short term" rental type places and a lot of locals think it used to be a camp but the family that Mike bought it from was the original owners and after many years of neglect Mike started a major renovation on all building and lives on sight and has 2 short term rentals that are both updated and full of character and charm and attention to detail and true craftsmanship shows throughout the property, even thou we consider it a work in progress we have come a long way in a short amount of time. The location is very private feeling yet right off of main street and has lots of wildlife from 2 resident hawks, white squirrels, rabbits, lots of birds and small stream with fish that runs through the property. Not to brag but this place is a small piece of paradise and most people that have stayed here have said, "they don't want to leave'.

The only thing I wish was a little better was the water pressure in the shower.
Good location close to downtown. House was clean and comfy.
Loved this sweet mountain cottage!
We absolutely loved our stay in this sweet cottage. It was just the perfect size for two adults and two teens who wanted their own space to get away from us. It had comfortable relaxing spaces and beds, a great screened porch, and a great kitchen! It was especially nice to wake up to rain pattering on the roof the last morning. We will definitely be back!
Walking distance to downtown. Clean, comfortable and cozy. Towels, soaps, shampoos readily available. Comfortable beds. We all loved it and would definitely rent again.
Excellent, would stay here again
Came here for my wedding and fell in love with this cabin!
Transylvania county is approximately 80%+ owned by either National Forest or State Forest. The Blue Ridge Parkway is located at the top of the mountain range surrounding Brevard. Miles and miles of some of the best if not the best mountain biking and hiking, fishing water fall sight seeing with over 250 waterfalls, we have been named Land of the Waterfalls for a reason and basically have become the Mountain & Road Bike Capital of the East Coast, seriously! I could go on and on about our Arts, Live Music scene, genuine shops and local minded restaurants and basic town that is full of happy people that are proud to be where they are doing what they do. I enjoy being a host as most everyone on vacation is looking to have a good time and relax and I try my best to make sure that is a easy thing to accomplish with lots of local maps and brochures and our chamber of commerce is .3 miles, walking distance from our Cottage and House and they are also ready to help fill your days with adventure and excitement!
