About Carl Bates

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

Why Carl Bates chose North Carolina Mountains

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

smokehouse catered th reh dinner-brisket

was excellent!!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.
