We have been in the vacation Cabin rental business since 2002 providing large 5-7 bedroom units perfect for extended family and multi-family vacations.
Carl Bates purchased this cabin in 2006
This large home has all the conveniences of home. And maybe a few more, like a hot tub, pool table, swing set and a foosball table.
We are on-site owners. Ever been to a vacation rental where the owner lives in another State and you've encountered a problem? Not at Bates Cabins. Should something not work, if you need additional supplies, or something as simple as figuring out how the TV remote is supposed to work, we live here on the premises and can take care of it immediately for you. No having to call the owner in another State and trying to figure it out over the phone. We make ourselves available 24/7 for any situation that might arise.
Our family-15 of us-just spent a week in
Cabin "A" at Bates Cabins for our son's
wedding. Everything was beyond perfect!
We hosted the rehearsal dinner on the
big deck for 70 people. Hung white
lights,rented tables, had fire in fire
pit-it looked absolutely "magical"!
Everyone was very impressed! Carl Bates
and his son Keith were very helpful and
accommodating. Even just "relaxing" in
the cabin or on the deck was perfect. Of
course, everyone loved the hot
tub!Plenty of beds and room to move-
absolutely breathtaking views. People
have posted their pictures on fb of our
gorgeous "cabin". It was very easy to
get to and parking was not a problem. We
highly recommend this or any of the
other Bates cabins (family members also
stayed in other cabins). Cash's

We had a wonderful family reunion including multiple generations and ages from the 80's to 6 months. The house was comfortable, large enough to give everyone private space when needed and great gathering space to all be together. We cooked all our meals there and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the essential cookware, utensils, etc. for that. We went up to Almond to rent pontoon boats and Carl's suggestion for the route to get there proved to be a beautiful drive. Our day on the lake tubing and swimming was fabulous. There are multiple hikes close by and even the three year old managed to get to the waterfall. There is a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. Lots of good memories were made! The only problem with our stay there was that it was too short.
We had 15 people stay in cabin A. There was plenty of room as well as privacy for everyone. It was wonderful! The house was furnished with everything you could ever ask for, plenty on linen and games for children and adults. The directions that Carl gave were excellent, we had no trouble finding the cabin. We would definitely stay there again. I would highly recommend Bates Cabins. The driveway was a little steep, but we had no problem with small cars and large suv's. Can't wait to go back.
We had a lovely family reunion 2 summers ago. I still rave about the cabin and tell everyone considering the North Carolina area seriously consider staying in one of your cabins! EVERYTHING you could want or need has been carefully thought out by the Bates family. The cabin was TOP NOTCH, the area beautiful and peaceful, but with plenty to do and see close at hand. The many waterfalls in the area are something you won't want to miss! The gem mining was fun. There were deer and hummingbirds everywhere. We had a really wonderful time. I have stayed at other places, but NONE compared with this amazing cabin. If you are considering staying in the area, DO NOT HESITATE staying here!!

Over the past 30 years we have stayed in many vacation cottages. This is by far the most enjoyable of them all. What a great place for children. Mr. Bates is the perfect host and we will visit him again. He helped us celebrate my mother and father's 70th anniversary. Thank you
Several members of my family stayed with me at Cabin #1 July 9-11. We loved
the beautiful furnishings, play area for my brother's younger children, and
the gem mining opportunity. I have
stayed few places with such a personal,
warm and friendly touch, and was quite
impressed. We had extended family in
another cabin who joined us for mining.
We will definitely be making referrals,
and look forward to staying again in the future. Thank you for everything!
We had a wonderful vacation. The cabin is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything top-of-the-line. We really enjoyed gem mining and just relaxing on the porch. Everyone loved the bird feeders, especially the humming birds. I would reccomend this cabin to anyone that enjoys a vacation in the mountains.
