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

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.

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

A beautiful comfortable quiet and relaxing property with gorgeous eclectic decor + comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the expansive back deck overlooking the rippling rapids of the river- cooked out on the grill and soaked up the peacefulness and quiet of the hidden retreat. Enjoyed our visits with Lyn and his suggestions. Would go back again for sure. The eclectic and artistic influence is reflected in the art and decor. Very appealing.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place near Asheville for a long weekend with some old friends. Needs - a place to sleep and relax. Wants - close to downtown, peacefull, comfortable, with all the amenities.

River Rock cabin checked all those boxes. We were extremely happy with our stay. Just an amazing cabin and location. Had our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the river and enjoyed evening cocktails from the same location. Our longest drive for dinner was less than 20 minutes but yet it was so quiet and peaceful, you felt like you were miles away from downtown.

The cabin itself was perfect; nice furnishings, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Had everything we needed.

We would definitely recommend this cabin!

Close, yet so far away!

  • 5 of 5

Lyn, thank you for sharing your humble abode with us for a few days. It was the perfect location for access to all things wonderful about Asheville, and the quiet, relaxing secret garden...your back porch. We will definitely be back next year!

Wonderful cabin by the river

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in Asheville and really enjoyed this cabin. It’s so serene sitting on the deck by the river. We hope to be back very soon.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with Lyn and it was absolutely amazing. The home was thoughtfully decorated all the way down to the in-tune guitar on the wall (this was great to have considering traveling with two kids and a guitar the kids win out). The river below started our mornings with coffee and ended our nights with a final nightcap from one of the many breweries. I couldn’t begin to say how perfect this was for our family of four. We look forward to seeing Lyn and his pups again and hopefully we can jam out a bit longer!

Thanks Lyn, we will never forget this trip!
