Why Max Shimer chose Bat Cave

This area provides a combination of quietness and closeness to Asheville, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and Hendersonville. The view from our property is one of the best in the area. The climate is nice most of the year with the four seasons to enjoy. We are also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a great place to see the mountains from. There are nice restaurants nearby and many things to do. This property is a one day drive from where we live full time (Florida)

What makes this cabin unique

The getting away from the sounds of traffic and City life is a big plus. I enjoy the birds and other animals that we sometimes see. (Deer, wild turkeys, Bear) and of course Bats at night in the Summer. I like the climate. Many times in the Summer we don't even need the air conditioner on. There is a fresh smell of woods and flowers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spring is close at hand and it is time to schedule vacations. The Spring flowers will soon cover the area in color and beauty. The Mountains are coming alive with new growth. What a time to be in the Mountains

Mountain Retreat - OH, THE VIEWS!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, mother, and I thoroughly enjoyed our mini-vacation in Bat Cave and Chimney Rock. We limited our sightseeing and day trips so as to fully enjoy the comforts of this very clean and perfectly maintained log home. The views from both the front and rear porches are outstanding, and the hot tub provided us with a perfect way to relax after fun-filled hours at Chimney Rock State Park. At age 93, Mom even climbed the stairs to the top of Chimney Rock to take in the breath-taking views! Locals and tourists alike were very friendly. Max and Barb made booking a breeze - very promptly answering all of our questions. For a two night stay, there was no problem not having a washer and dryer. Soon after the trip, we received full refund of the damage deposit. Many thanks to Max and Barb for sharing their home away from home with us. The experience was wonderful and many happy memories were made.

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family recently had the honor of staying at the Shimer house the first week of June. The cabin was amazing, well kept, and beautiful! Having grown up in the mountains the scenic beauty of Bat Cave brought back great memories. The few questions we had were answered promptly and courteously. The floor plan of the house is open and spacious. The view from the house is breathtaking. Along with the family vehicle I trailered in my motorcycle. The road to the cabin is filled with curves that most bike riders would appreciate. It has easy access to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The worst part of the vacation was the day we had to leave. Thanks to the Shimer’s for opening your house to vacationers!

My husband and I wanted to take my mom away for some R&R and see family near by. Viewed alot of VRBO places in Ashville area. Pictures of Shimer Hs were limited-AND...did not do justice! Wonderful home, comfortable, clean, views [especially from back porch and hot tub]. Blessed to have the most beautiful rainbow after an afternoon shower. All room very spacious. Thanks to Max and Barb for allowing us to enjoy their home away from home. Booked at last minute [day before!] and hope to go there again.
Right there at Chimney Rock and Lake Lure-good location.

We have stayed at the Shimer House a few times for a long weekend and are staying for a week this summer. This is an incredible home right on the top of the mountain. It is very clean, well maintained and so serene. The hot tub is the icing on the cake. Don't pass up an opportunity to stay here. You'll want to come back again and again.

The Shimer House was absolutely the most beautiful
vacation house we have ever stayed in. We stayed on
the back porch most of the time because of the view
overlooking the mountains! I even used that porch as
the setting to propose to my now fiancee! I look
forward to staying at the house again real soon!!!!!
