About Esther Dennis
My wife and I decided to buy and renovate this home after being drawn in by its scenic views and nearby creek. The wrap around porch was what sold us - we could see for miles and the seasons always give us a new view. Our children really enjoy exploring the nearby hiking trails and waterfalls. We try to provide as much as possible in the vacation homes because we don't like packing! So there are a lot of amenities in our vacation homes you might not find when renting from other people. We hope you enjoy the Lady Bug House as much as we do!
Esther Dennis purchased this House in 2010
Why Esther Dennis chose Bat Cave
We love hiking and enjoying the scenic views of the mountains, so we decided to purchase a rental property in Hendersonville (Bat Cave), NC. It is great for escaping from the summer heat and also visiting during winter to see the snowfall in the mountains. We're centrally located close to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, downtown Hendersonville, and a short drive to Asheville, NC. Being close to these locations gives us a lot of options when we travel.
What makes this House unique
Staying at the Lady Bug House offers our guests access to things they might not get at other vacation homes, like an air hockey gaming center, wii station setup, satellite TV, and other electronics that keep kids happy. We also have fishing rods available for the more adventurous guests. We hope your trip is memorable and fun!

Great Getaway with the Family in the mountains
This house is the ultimate executive mountain home retreat. It was convenient to the interstate, yet far enough to enjoy the serene and peacefulness of the mountains. Aside from location, the home is spacious and has a tremendous amount of space for multiple families.
The bedrooms are fantastic and comfortable. Each bedroom comes with freshly laundered linens and terries along with immaculate cleanliness. There is plenty of space in each bedroom to store clothes and hang clothes.
The Bathrooms (3 full bathrooms) were well stocked, clean, and beautiful. There was never any issue with water pressure or hot water even with multiple people showering simultaneously in different bathrooms on different floors.
The wrap around porch on the second floor went around the entire house. From the porch you could see the mountains and it was the perfect place to grill (yes there’s one there), read a book, have a meal, or just sit and relax.
The kitchen was the perfect place to prepare meals and have meals with your family—no matter how many people. It was well stocked with all the cooking essentials, serving ware, plates, glasses, and about anything you could imagine that was needed in your home away from home. There is an oversized refrigerator and freezer, large modern stovetop, and huge “very quiet” dish washer.
If you need to get some laundry done, there is a huge laundry room with modern washer and dryer——very convenient.
How many rental homes have a media and full game room stocked with video games, air hockey, and tons of movies and books to keep everyone entertained. The cable television service in the house was perfect and it provided all the channels that one may desire.
The home is very close to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, making it very convenient to step out for outdoor recreation and dining venues. Also, it is also only minutes located from downtown Henderson in the chance that one may want some chain stores or chain restaurants to visit while on the trip.
I would definitely go back to this mountain retreat, the visit was fantastic and coordinating arrival with the owners was smooth. On a scale from 1 to 10, my family and I give it a 11.
best vacation rental ever...
This house was even roomier than it appears in the online description. We had four families here to celebrate my oldest daughter's birthday (and the first time we've all had spring break the same week). Even with the kids, there was plenty of room. The house is spacious, and it was impeccably clean when we arrived. There was everything you could want to have a fun retreat, including game room for the kids. You might not think Bat Cave is the perfect spot for a vacation but it's just minutes away from Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and Hendersonville, and a short drive to Asheville. We were able to have a night on the town in Asheville, take the kids to hike Bearwallow Mountain, spend a day at Chimney Rock State Park, have an evening dinner in Lake Lure, and still have plenty of relaxing family time in this welcoming home. Great buy for the rental price. The owner was very quick in returning the security/damage deposit, and even mailed me back the prescription glasses I had left in the master bedroom.
We will definitely want to stay here again.
Our group of 20 college guys stayed here and loved the experience. Even though we brought more than the house sleeps, there were plenty of couches and floor space to put the extra people. Spacious living area for our group to all meet in at night and a large deck to seat people at dinner. Large enough kitchen to cook for large groups. The house exceeded our expectations and we will be returning next spring for our church retreat.
Perfect home for our family to share our Christmas in the mountains
Such a lovely home with every convenience. Beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen a great size for several people to be preparing meals together. Nice and roomy so all 10 adults and 2 children had plenty of room. So close to everything in the area. Chimney Rock was a favorite for hiking and shopping in the quaint town. Also made a trip to Ashville and did all our food shopping in Hendersonville. Loved the location. Only problem was our fireplace ran out of gas the night before Christmas eve so no fire for our stockings on Christmas eve or Christmas day. Would definitely stay here again.
Great location and lots of space. Beautiful home!
Family of twelve and was very comfortable. Home was clean and we had everything we needed. Kitchen is huge! Lots of local things to do...small towns with lots of charm. Highly recommend staying in the Love Bug home!
Everything was as expected, we'll come back next year!
Lady Bug House guests will have the opportunity to enjoy nature's majesty in the Blue Ridge Parkway. With mountain views of all four seasons the house is perfectly seated close to lots of activities for any weather. Nearby is Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, downtown Hendersonville, and Asheville, NC. Lake Lure offers a variety of water sporting activities and hiking. The movie Dirty Dancing was filmed at Lake Lure so there are tours and fun photo treks for family outings. Chimney Rock is one of the mountains most breathtaking views - it's the perfect day hike to see small wildlife and gorgeous scenery. Apple picking is a big deal in Hendersonville. Every year there is an Apple Picking Festival and some of the best apples are the ones you pick yourself! Don't miss Asheville, NC less than an hour away - with great shopping, art festivals, and the Biltmore House you don't want to miss this historical beautiful city. Visit the Lady Bug House with your family and see what adventures you can find!
