Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The “True Early 30’s classic cottage with character. Historically captured as the first “BAT CAVE POST OFFICE” now equipped with newly modern amenities, and still possessing the old time feeling of easy, relaxation, and tranquility.

You sleep at night with the peacefulness of the flowing river and the 4 foot waterfall right behind the home below the deck. The view is breath taking in all directions.

Trout fishing is a lot of fun with a river stocking taking place once a week. Only 100 yards down stream and 1/4 mile upstream you are sure to enjoy the catch of the day, hopefully for all to see. Personal steps that lead to the river are for our guests with the brand new decks on each level. We recommend water shoes for everyone to wear.

Come, sit and relax by reading a book or watching all the wildlife here.

We invite you to come and relax and enjoy the beauty of the NC Mountains.

And enjoy our own LITTLE WATER PARK & Try SKIING on the river in your back yard??

ASK about IT!!

Why Bruce & Marion Baker chose Asheville Area

The Bat Cave can be compared to the old "Route 66". It was considered to be the Old Traders Trail in the 1800s' from Asheville to Charlotte & Columbia until the Interstate system was developed with a Horse Exchange & the only drinking spot on the route. We are at the cross roads of 64, 74 & 9. A 2 lane which is a nicely paved road now.

What makes this cottage unique

Romance is in the air LARGE REAR DECK with 6 Person PRIVATE HOT TUB just above the river with Trillion $ views & a Fire Place to snuggle in Front of for Late Night. Memories for all!!

Seating on the private back deck accommodates up to 12 people, and makes for a lot of fun. The 6 person Hot

Tub on the rear deck. With a 4-in. insulated cover to block Sun, Rain, or Snow just 20 Ft. above the river. Look 1/2 mile up river.

Trout fishing is a lot of fun with a river stocking taking place once a week. Only 100 yards down stream and 1/4 mile upstream you are sure to enjoy the catch of the day, hopefully for all to see. Personal steps that lead to the river are for our guests with the brand new decks on each level. We recommend water shoes for everyone to wear.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 6 adults and two dogs. Easy drive into Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. Loved the hot tub and the view from the deck. The kitchen was modern and well equipped and the beds were comfortable.The river below was lots of fun to swim in. The owners were very responsive before and during our stay. Beware: very close to the busy road outside the front door so watch your pets and kids . The road noise is not an issue inside with windows closed and the sound of the rushing water below drowns out any traffic noise when you're on the deck. All in all we had a great stay.

Tri- family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bat Cave. We had six adults and two children and were plenty comfortable. The hot tub was nice,the kitchen was modern, the massage chair was great. The beds were some of the best we've ever had in a rental. Bruce was always available when we had questions and was very nice. I would highly recommend staying with BatCave river cottages.

Best Family Vacation Yet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bat Cave River Cottage 3 bedroom on 6/25-6/29/2015. It was amazing. There were 6 of us in the house. 4 adults and 2 children (ages 6&7). From the moment we arrived we just knew the good times that were ahead of us. The house is situated in the PERFECT spot. Directly on the Broad River literally. The sound of that river alone made the trip. Three wonderful bedrooms and two bathrooms made everything effortless. We cooked all but 3 meals in the house. The kitchen is loaded so there is nothing that you need except what you want to cook. The house is super clean and well kept. The best part to us was the deck out back. Between the hot tub, grill, and river that seems to be where we were most of the time. At night there were so many lightning bugs that the whole outside sparkled. I honestly can not say enough good things about this house of the homeowners. I will definitely be returning to this house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage! We stayed here for Christmas and it was a fabulous time had by all. The cottage is just as described. The hot tub is wonderful and in a perfect spot to watch the beautiful stream below. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living room is spacious but still very cozy. It was private but owners were there to help if we needed anything. We will definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family. We can't wait to come back!!

The Barges

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in our very short stay. The owners were very accommodating during our stay. The house has a lot of history and the upgrades are beautiful. I enjoyed walking down to the water with my lab until sunset. The weather was perfect for it being the end of their season. We highly recommend this as a great place to get away too. Thank you both and have a great winter.

Better than described!

  • 5 of 5

How does one describe one of the best getaways ever? My eyes had trouble taking in all the beauty. The blue sky and different hues of green all was breathtaking. My ears sensitive to the sounds of the river. Rushing white water over the rocks and yet it was so peacefully quiet in its own way. The smell of fresh mountain air makes me want to bottle it somehow. The home feels like we were home. Very clean and shows how dedicated Bruce and Marion are to keeping it well maintained. The kitchen has everything you could want. If you run out of pepper...Bruce comes over to the rescue. If you get cold and didn't bring a sweatshirt....Marion to the rescue. The master bed is more comfortable then the TempurPedic we have a home. Now the living room is as homey as it gets. They have thought of everything from the big tv to games and even a deck of cards. One step inside and you fall in love, not just with the home but the owners as well. They are one of a kind. Even the neighbors are a blast. This is the perfect place to bring families or just a personal getaway. Thank you once more, Bruce and Marion. We will never forget all you have done for us....especially me...the other Marian. We look forward to coming back "home". ---- God Bless, Marian & Scott

Owner's Response: Some people just don't care about all the sites to see and just want to kick back and relax, Others just want the serenity and relaxation. If they want to mingle with the local neighbors it is not hard to do. We enjoyed having Scott & Marian very out going and interesting. Good Luck in a new adventure. Bruce & Marion Owners
