Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The “True Early 30’s classic cottage with character. Historically captured as the first “BAT CAVE POST OFFICE” now equipped with newly modern amenities, and still possessing the old time feeling of easy, relaxation, and tranquility.

You sleep at night with the peacefulness of the flowing river and the 4 foot waterfall right behind the home below the deck. The view is breath taking in all directions.

Trout fishing is a lot of fun with a river stocking taking place once a week. Only 100 yards down stream and 1/4 mile upstream you are sure to enjoy the catch of the day, hopefully for all to see. Personal steps that lead to the river are for our guests with the brand new decks on each level. We recommend water shoes for everyone to wear.

Come, sit and relax by reading a book or watching all the wildlife here.

We invite you to come and relax and enjoy the beauty of the NC Mountains.

And enjoy our own LITTLE WATER PARK & Try SKIING on the river in your back yard??

ASK about IT!!

Why Bruce & Marion Baker chose Bat Cave

The Bat Cave can be compared to the old "Route 66". It was considered to be the Old Traders Trail in the 1800s' from Asheville to Charlotte & Columbia until the Interstate system was developed with a Horse Exchange & the only drinking spot on the route. We are at the cross roads of 64, 74 & 9. A 2 lane which is a nicely paved road now.

What makes this cottage unique

Romance is in the air LARGE REAR DECK with 6 Person PRIVATE HOT TUB just above the river with Trillion $ views & a Fire Place to snuggle in Front of for Late Night. Memories for all!!

Seating on the private back deck accommodates up to 12 people, and makes for a lot of fun. The 6 person Hot

Tub on the rear deck. With a 4-in. insulated cover to block Sun, Rain, or Snow just 20 Ft. above the river. Look 1/2 mile up river.

Trout fishing is a lot of fun with a river stocking taking place once a week. Only 100 yards down stream and 1/4 mile upstream you are sure to enjoy the catch of the day, hopefully for all to see. Personal steps that lead to the river are for our guests with the brand new decks on each level. We recommend water shoes for everyone to wear.

Great cottage on the river

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and location! It had all that we needed to enjoy our stay. It was clean and spacious, plus the hosts were kind and helpful. Bat Cave is a quiet town, so the nightlife isn’t close, but was perfect for us.

Great location with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This property has 3 bedrooms and a full, remodeled bath upstairs and downstairs is another full bath, remodeled kitchen, lovely living room with a futon and plenty of seating. the outdoor deck is covered and is a great spot to sit and listen to the water rushing down the river. The property owners live next door but do not bother you. We stayed for 2 nights with friends and that was a perfect amount of time before we ventured to Asheville. We found a great outside beer pub in the little town. So cute

The cottage was right on the road. Very noisy.

  • 3 of 5

Too far from Asheville. Noisy. On the road. Not comfortable

  • Submitted: Sep 29, 2017
  • Stayed: September 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear you didn't find our cabin comfortable as this is in conflict with what your text message yesterday evening had suggested, but thank you for your response. As evidenced by our five star rating, the vast majority of our renters love this home and continue to stay with us. If you are not familiar with mountainous terrain, you may not realize there is a significant difference in mountain roads vs. highways. GPS is not always reliable in this area. Asheville is 25 miles from the cabin and there are numerous routes to get there, some shorter in time than others. We would have been happy to advise you on routes had you asked. Another point you may want to consider when reserving a river front vacation rental is that roads tend to run along rivers in this area. Therefore most rentals will be close to the road. We do hope you enjoyed the local areas of Chimney Rock Village and Lake Lure as well as the hot tub overlooking the Rocky Broad River.

Nostalgic and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Even though the house is an older home the updates are great. Very clean and comfortable. The deck overlooking the river is awesome. We had everything we needed. The area, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, was so beautiful and peaceful. The owner, Bruce, is a super nice guy and made us feel right at home.

Only complaint.....we had to come home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the town, the house, and the mountains. The house had everything we could imagine we would of needed for 8 people. The view was amazing and so as that kitchen. The hot tub was ok. We will be booking for a longer stay next summer.
