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. 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

The perfect Asheville getaway spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the first thing we booked for our trip & it did not disappoint. Lovely, quiet location. Sitting by the river was the perfect way to decompress. The cabin was beautifully remodeled with all those unique, thoughtful touches that make a place truly memorable. Our family loved every minute of our stay. We’ll definitely be back!!

The Most Wonderful River View and Sound

  • 5 of 5

River rock Cabin is a wonderful, quiet place very close to the city (convenient to all things Asheville), yet so very quiet and full of nature. The view of the river is spectacular, and the sound of the rushing water is amazing. We found everything we could need inside the cabin, and it was super clean. The decor is lovely and comfortable. Thank you for hosting such a special cabin in such a nice location. I hope to come back and sit on that deck again!

Great place to spend a few days

  • 5 of 5

This property is so relaxing with the deck right on the river. Great layout with one enclosed bedroom downstairs and a nice large loft upstairs. Very well furnished. Some really cool touches like the antique fireplace downstairs and the desk nook and reading library in the loft. Wonderful bathroom on first floor. Two small opportunities ... one is to fix the sliding glass doors since two are inoperable and the other two require a lot of force to move. The other opportunity is to invest in more and better pots and pans, especially frying pans. Overall a great place and we want to come back in the future for sure.

Great location and place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our trip to the cabin. Riverfront view is beautiful and having the deck look right over it makes it a very relaxing spot to park yourself for the evening. Make sure you bring hot dogs and marshmallows for the fire pit! Cabin is only minutes from lots of things to do in Asheville and the surrounding area.
