About Mike McFarling

This is my 3rd VRBO property since 1987, and I try selecting properties with unique qualities to visit the area. This Corner Cottage in Asheville is also home to me and my wife during the Winter months, so we will be creating a comfortable and convenient home for you to relax and enjoy the treasures of Asheville. Our other VRBO property has been with VRBO since 2003 and is located at Kiawah Island SC. #54918 and we invite you to visit that VRBO listing if you are ever interested in visiting the Beach. That property also is Beachfront and offers excellent features as does this Corner Cottage

Mike McFarling purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike McFarling chose Asheville

Just purchased... June 2014... This is our 3rd VRBO property. This home will serve as our Winter retreat, and is available for rent the rest of the year. We choose this property because it is walking distance to Downtown, and centrally located to all of Asheville and it's attractions. Only a few blocks from groceries like Greenlife, Trader Joe's, and Harris Teeter.. I believe that you will find this Home is perfect for discovering Asheville and the surrounding area.

What makes this house unique

While the best feature about this home for me is the ease and ability to walk downtown, you might find swinging on the front porch swing you favorite pastime. We have made it a point to provide excellent bedding and linens and provide a quality and comfortable setting for you to enjoy your stay. While our Kitchen is a bit small, it is equipped with everything you will need for cooking and grilling. Relax in our Claw Foot Tub, or enjoy the relaxation of our rain shower... Off street parking provides easy access to the house, and a corner location provides excellent privacy. Our neighborhood will give you a feel of what Asheville is about, and let you stroll the streets with comfort and security.

Even better the second time around

  • 5 of 5

We have just concluded our second visit to Asheville and our second stay at this property. We loved it even more the second time. The house is in a great neighborhood with friendly neighbors, amazing location and everything you could possibly want in a home away from home. It offers everything you could possibly want. Mike is quick to respond to communications, too! The "perfect" description is definitely true. Thank you, Mike, for helping make this vacation so great!

Great little house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house. It was perfect for our week long stay. Fantastic location, walkable to downtown Asheville. Mike was very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. All the little extra touches to make it feel like home. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Asheville!

Walk to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Charming house with comfortable furniture and beautiful appointments. We spent 2 weeks here in late July and, other than the uncomfortably hot weather (which the owner obviously can't control), everything was great. Mike responded immediately to our one concern -- we were having problems deciphering the workings of the TV set -- and was tremendously helpful both in booking the property and during our stay. In addition to the great location and lovely interior, the house has a private, lockable, covered parking area. We would certainly stay here again if we were to return to Asheville.

Owner's Response: I am always glad to hear my guests have such a nice time... I can relate to the heat.. we are all spoiled here in Asheville with great weather and temperatures... So when it gets in the upper 80's to lower 90's we think it's hot !!! Next time you are coming to Asheville.. look me up.. I'll be glad to have you again.. Mike

Great Cottage near Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this great little cottage in July and truly enjoyed it. The house has everything as advertised - everything you need plus nice neighbors. Walking distance to downtown - about a 20 minute walk to the restaurants, shops, etc. The house had character - from the front porch to the claw-foot tub. Owner was easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves headed up to Asheville again.

Downtown House PERFECT LOCATION! :)

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely everything we needed and more! It was the perfect amount of space, and it felt as if it were our own home. It actually helped us with our decision of us wanting to move to Asheville. The house had everything including dishwasher, washer and dryer, sink with pull out faucet head, claw-foot tub, etc. The location was beautiful and was literally a mile walk from Trader Joe's and the heart of downtown. We took our bikes when we went to help with our travel, but we also drove out to the mountains to hike (30-45 minute drive depending where we wanted to hike). We also checked out West Asheville which was also absolutely AMAZING. Eat at 12 Bones if you want to eat the best BBQ you've ever had. If I had to pick a house to stay at again, it would definitely be this place! Definitely worth the price, even though we were barely there during the day! :)

He also had Netflix on his TV to help comfort us during our stay at night. We love watching Bob's Burgers, so we cozied up in the livingroom and had a marathon a few nights.

Thanks Mike for being so welcome and we will definitely get ahold of you again if we decided to travel back! :)
