About the owner: Jon and I were married in 1988. We spent our honeymoon in nearby Chimney Rock. We reside in Kernersville, NC where we were both born and raised. We are parents to 3 wonderful children; Owen, Hannah and Molly. Jon has been employed with Tyco Electronics since 1994. He is a drummer and has played with several bands over the years. He now enjoys playing in our praise and worship band at church. I have spent most of our married life as an at-home mom. I have been blessed to provide child care for some precious children who have touched my life deeply. I have taught pre-school, worked as a substitute teacher in our local schools and worked full time with special needs children where God taught me things I would never have learned otherwise. I am participated in my first international mission trip in the summer of 2012. I accompanied a small group from my local church to Malawi, Africa where we worked with orphans, widows, and special needs children.I returned in the spring of 2014. These trips have been amazing and I hope to be able to return many more times. Jon and I have been greatly blessed and look forward to the opportunity to share our blessings with you.
Why the Owner Chose Bat Cave: We had always vacationed at Ocean Isle Beach. Because Jon loves the mountains so much I decided to try something different the summer of 2011. I began to search online for places in the mountains that still provided swimming and sunbathing opportunities. While browsing on VRBO one day I came across a house in Bat Cave. I booked it for a long weekend and we were hooked! We booked a second visit and it was during that visit that we discovered the little house for sale. We fell in love with it and purchased it several months later. We love the fact that there is so much to do in the area. Our daughter loves to visit the nearby wolf sanctuary/rescue. There is swimming, horseback riding, kayaking,hiking,rock climbing, repelling, ziplining, shopping, and so much more.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We love the quiet, peaceful surroundings. The colors of fall are spectacular! Spring is beautiful and full of color. The wildlife is abundant. We leave all our cares at home!
