Bat Cave house description
Are you searching for the perfect magical place for your big event?
If you're planning a large gathering and need a unique location that can accommodate 60+ guests, The Camp is exactly what you've been looking for. The Camp is the ultimate North Carolina mountain vacation rental for family reunions, corporate retreats, church groups, weddings, and multi-family getaways.
Located near Bat Cave, North Carolina, The Camp has everything you need; including four homes with a combined capability of sleeping up to 63 people, bunk-houses which can sleep up to 60 more in the warmer months, a 5,000 square-foot social hall, a gymnasium with a full-sized wooden basketball court, an outdoor basketball court, an arcade, tennis courts, an athletic field, a heated pool, an amusement-park worthy water slide, and a fishing pond.
The Camp is a pet-friendly, full-fledged dream-come-true vacation rental for groups who need endless entertainment for all ages, coupled with the comforts you'd expect from a five-star resort. The Camp is also an ideal escape from notoriety, offering luxury and exclusivity past its privacy-ensuring main gate.
The newest home at The Camp, THE POND HOUSE, is aptly named because of its location next to the fishing pond. THE POND HOUSE is just right for a large family or a group of friends; accommodating up to 10 guests, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The open concept great-room of the house gives it a community feeling; while the large deck invites you to grill some steaks with the family or relax in a rocking chair and enjoy panoramic views of The Camp and the mountains beyond.
New adventures occur every day you spend at The Camp. Somehow, you found time between fishing sessions to take the dogs for a hike to 'the bear cave', play goalie in a game of soccer, watch the kids climb on the fire truck, and build a bonfire. You even took a minute to take advantage of the wireless internet so you could brag to friends back home about the 'enormous fish' you caught this morning. Fishing will be out the window if it rains, but you'll survive thanks to the outfitted exercise room, satellite TV, and ping-pong, pool, and air hockey tables in the recreation hall.
The restored gymnasium could potentially provide another day of entertainment with its basketball court and huge space for fun games like dodge ball with the family. On your final night at The Camp, the kids are having a sleepover in the gym, and you're going to take the opportunity to spend some much-deserved quiet time in the hot tub.
The Camp is located near several of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. Bat Cave is four miles away and has a general store and post office. Five more scenic miles bring you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80's movie Dirty Dancing. There are several restaurants in the quaint town of Lake Lure, ranging in fare from old world Italian or German dining to casual tiki bar drinks. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park whose main attractions are the 404-foot high Hickory Nut Falls and breathtaking Exclamation Point, which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining and whitewater rafting. Asheville, North Carolina, a popular destination for entertainment and fine dining, is a thirty-minute trip from The Camp.
But you'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp, making even a day trip seem like too much time spent away from your own pleasure island. Food delivery is available from dozens of restaurants. Or perhaps for your event you want to hire a chef, who will find everything necessary to prepare gourmet meals in the well-equipped commercial kitchen. On the other end of the spectrum, The Camp provides plenty of firewood so that your hot dog cooked on a stick and followed by gooey S'mores will make you giggle like you haven't in years.
Ideal for large gatherings, multi-family getaways, or an exclusive escape, The Camp is private, well appointed, and brimming with loads of day and nighttime fun for all ages!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: For nearly eight decades prior to its renovation, The Camp operated as Camp Mishemokwa where hundreds of children spent summers having all the classic first-time-at-camp experiences. In 2005, The Blum Family purchased the 150-acre property, spending countless dollars and tireless hours rebuilding, renovating, and giving The Camp a new lease on life as an exclusive vacation rental property. This private gated estate is the perfect place for family reunions, girls' and guys' getaways, destination weddings, corporate and spiritual retreats.
Why the Owner Chose Bat Cave:
There is nothing else like it! The Camp artfully combines luxurious, comfortable accommodations with a 150-acre fun park (complete with heated pool, a 150ft water slide and a huge Social Hall/Arcade/Game Room!) set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The 4 homes on the estate can be rented individually or together for exclusive use of the facilities.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you rent a home at The Camp, you not only get a gorgeous accommodation with all the comforts of home (and then some!), but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site. There is truly something to do for every age group!
