LARGE MOUNTAIN HOME~AMAZING VIEW,CLOSE TO IT ALL, GREAT RATES!

Bat Cave House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

The sunrise will take your breath away each morning as you rock on the large front porch with a steaming cup of apple cider or coffee. Eight rocking chairs are waiting for you and the family to enjoy breathtaking views of towering Grant Mountain located in the clouds on phenomenal Mt. Bearawallow. Meadows roll gently down to nestle at the base of mighty Mount Pisgah framing a snapshot of grazing horses next to a postcard perfect pond.

Kids can roll up their pants and enjoy catching crawfish and other oddities while discovering the magical world of nature. Grab a basket and spend the afternoon filling it with wild blackberries for a pie to go along with fresh mountain cabbage, apples, Amish butter and cheese, homemade jams, jellies and scrumptious baked goods found at the local farmers markets. Although we are located at a high elevation, take Fido, the kids and your walking stick and hike even farther up our mountain road and enjoy a picnic and the ever changing scenery of autumn leaves or spring flowers. No need for air conditioning since the breezes are always cool, so snuggle under a cozy blanket and sleep to the serenade of the creek running down the mighty mountain and the echoes of a thunderstorm rolling in from over the gorge.

Explore the Biltmore House and shop in the Village, but don't forget to take the kids and pan for gold, enjoy wonderful barbeque, homemade ice cream and all the unique shops (as well as drive to the top..awesome) of Chimney Rock! Whether its beautiful waterfalls or hiking, biking, boating, golfing, shopping or swimming, we know that you'll agree that it is definitely God's country and we welcome you to be our guest.

About Hillary Timmons

This home has been in our family since the 1970's but it was constructed in the 20's. We completely renovated it in 2001 but have never rented it out. Unfortunately, our family has become smaller, the children have grown and we now have very little time to enjoy it. We hope other folks will love it as we do and make fond vacation memories. Mott's Mountain Laurel is dedicated in memory of the most wonderful wife, mother and grandmother...our Meme.

Hillary Timmons purchased this house in 1999

Why Hillary Timmons chose Bat Cave

Our family considered many different properties in many different mountain locations before buying a vacation get-away but found this Bearwallow Mountain home to have the MOST stunning views! Conveniently located between Asheville and Hendersonville, our home is also just a short drive from shopping, entertainment and many natural wonders. We can't wait for you to enjoy the quaint shops of Chimney Rock, Bat Cave and the beach and restaurants of Lake Lure!!

What makes this house unique

Swimming (Sliding Rock and Lake Lure), skiing, hiking, climbing, bird and animal watching, exploring, cable car sight-seeing, and antiquing are only a few activities which can be enjoyed while vacationing at our mountain home.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The home was everything we could have hoped for and more. Everyone in our party, including our two elderly family members, were so thrilled with the home and it's amenities that we are already planning on coming back for a longer stay, We were so impressed with the amount of entertainment the cabin offered, from the very large selection of board games to the Xbox, and the thoughtful touches and welcome basket they included. They even have a cabinet dedicated for your dog! The decor is homey and comfortable without being kitschy, and you truly feel like you're at home. If you choose this home, you won't regret it. The house is on the mountain, so don't be suprised when you see the driveway, but have no fear-you will have no problems getting up the driveway. We made it up no problem with our minivan packed full of people and suitcases. You will not be sorry if you choose this amazing home! Thank you to the Timmons for opening up their awesome home!

Amazing Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here a week and had so much fun. The house was terrific, and we loved sitting out on the porch and hearing the sounds and smelling the smells of North Carolina in the mountains.

The house was definitely as advertised. Very roomy and welcoming, with lots to do inside, like board games, movies, and video games, though we didn't use these. There is a grocery store down the mountain 5 or 10 minutes towards Asheville, and a couple of other stands on the way where we bought fresh fruits and vegetables.

The highlight for me was hiking up the mountain behind the house. It took us a couple tries as the path dies out a little right before the top but once we persevered we found it was only a short 30 minutes from the house and you're at a saddle between two peaks. There's a pasture there with cows, apple trees, and a great view. You can see all the way to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. One hike we even continued up the mountain and ended up right at the top past a bunch of antennae and aerials. It was like a scene from the Sound of Music (if it were set in Appalachia), standing in a field with the mountain falling away on both sides away from us.

My only criticism would be that there should be slightly more detailed directions to get to the house. The first time we weren't entirely sure which branch of the drive to take right below the house, and ended up in a dead-end in someone's driveway with a tricky reversing job down a steep road.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. The location was perfect, driving distance to Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and lots of other stuff! At the same time, the cabin was secluded enough that we mostly enjoyed lounging on the porch, listening to the crickets and hummingbirds. We hope to be back soon!!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
While I tell you about this adventure please keep in mind that the hubby, the canine kid and I were looking for a peaceful escape far, far away from work, Fox News, and alarm clocks. As a beach lover I "took one for the team" and picked the mountain house over a beach escape to please my other-half. Now, having said that I will tell you that this mountain home vacation was more wonderful than any beach vacation I have ever had. The house is equipped with everything you will need, it is move in ready! Soak in the claw foot tub, enjoy the antique furniture while you have access to all of the high-tech you will need. The flat screens, DVDs, CDs, XBox, WiFi, kitchen appliances (more than I have in my own kitchen!), rocking chairs on the porch, and a pond to spend a lazy day by. But, if it is a sight-seeing adventure you are after-this is the place too! Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Asheville and more are at the foot of the mountain with shopping, dining , and photo opportunities at every turn. The place is immaculate, the beautiful pictures of the interior and exterior are exactly what you will find when you arrive. We were surprised to find that our host/hostess had planned our first evening by leaving a "welcome gift" on the kitchen counter. The view of the mountain from the porch was awesome, the wine was perfect too. After just one day on the mountain my husband, the geek-nerd-computer-engineer, picked me a boquet of wild flowers! I would recommend this home for anyone wanting to relax and listen to the mountain stream OR hop up and go see the sights in town. There is no way you can go wrong, it is honestly the best vacation we have had in a long time. Many thanks to Hillary and Todd for this awesome escape.

Great location, everything you need is here!

  • 5 of 5
I hosted Thanksgiving for my family here and could not have been happier. It was spacious, homey, and all of our needs were anticipated. The kitchen was well equipped, there was a nice selection of movies on DVD, and my husband was most appreciative of the gaming system in the bedroom! The big fireplace was an extra big treat.

I have to say, though, that my favorite thing about the property was it's location. We made trips to Asheville and Hendersonville, each less than twenty minutes away. Bat Cave and Chimney Rock were just a stone's throw. We hiked to the top of Bearwallow Mountain from the house on three separate days and it was worth the effort each time...2000 feet higher than the top of Chimney Rock with spectacular views on all sides.

The Timmons were very helpful and responsive. I heartily recommend this property and would absolutely return!
