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 Smoky Mountains

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'.

What makes this house unique

Benefits in summary. Quality buildings with attention to detail and owner is on site and cares for you to have the best short term rental experience and vacation.

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!

Wonderful weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cute house for a weekend and it was perfect. The 4 of us and our dogs felt this was great home base for a weekend of hiking and beer tastings. The house is great! The furniture is all very comfortable and the kitchen is fully functional and modern with everything you need. We particularly enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the mornings. The extra touches like a basket of blankets, Bluetooth music player and board games put the cherry on top for our weekend. We will definitely be back!

great location and comfy cabin

  • 4 of 5

This beautifully-restored cabin is a 20 minute walk from downtown Brevard and offers lots of nearby walking opportunities (e.g. Silvermont Mansion). We loved the screen porch and quiet setting yet so close to town. The kitchen was very well-equiped & laundry facilities quite handy. The 2nd floor bathroom is problematic: my sister repeatedly bumped her head at the sink and found it impossible to take a bath... difficult to climb in and out of the claw foot tub & showering didn't work due to lack of headroom. So 2nd floor guests will likely need to shower downstairs. The downstairs bedroom is quite tight with perhaps a foot on either side of the bed, but manageable. The cabin was quite clean and nicely finished. Seating in dining room, living room & porch accommodated 4-5 people. We appreciated that the owner is gradually restoring several old cabins on the property, nicely sited and set back from the street with nice landscaping.

Our month here could not have been better. The house is absolutely adorable with wonderful details in every corner. Mike has taken care of everything. He was available and accommodating with answers to all our questions about the area and property. We would highly recommend staying here if you are in the Brevard area. Walking distance on sidewalks to downtown and 10 minutes to the trailheads.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Well decorated house and good layout for our family. We would definitely stay here again.

The only issue was the water pressure was too low to use both bathrooms concurrently. Took a while for 5 people.

Owner's Response: Sorry the water pressure wasn't great for 2 people at same time. Attention all future renters...our house may not be that great at 2 people taking showers and flushing toilets at same time!

Great location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much we can't wait to come back! The location is perfect. It's quiet and close to town, you could walk or take a bike into town and never have to use your car. The owner was very accommodating to our requests and has done an amazing job creating a cozy comfortable space. The screened in porch was awesome, we spent most of our time hanging out there and we never turned the TV on once. We will be back!

Great place to explore Brevard

  • 5 of 5

We like the Brevard area and were looking for accommodations close to town. The Lingerlong House is a great choice. It is a half mile easy walk to town, even for us retirees. You pass Silvermont recreation (basketball, tennis, garden walk) and senior center on the way. Brevard is a thriving town with several new restaurants and a couple craft breweries to enjoy along with some unique shops and an active music scene. I like to fly fish and the Davidson River is close-by as is the Blue Ridge Parkway. Mike was a gracious host, very welcoming and helpful in giving us recommendations and tips for the local area. The house had everything we needed with a well equipped, renovated kitchen and bathrooms. The larger upstairs bedroom has an adjacent space that is ideal for yoga. We especially enjoyed having meals on the screened-in porch, which comes with views of Brevard's famous white squirrels. Access to the house is a bit tricky as Parkview Drive and Elm Bend Road intersect Greenville highway (US 276) at right angles directly across from the driveway entrance. However, this minor inconvenience did not impact our enjoyment of the area. We will definitely be coming back!
