Why Bruce & Marion Baker chose Bat Cave
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.

Enjoyed my stay here. The house was nice especially with it being right on the river. It was not far from Chimney Rock at all. There were a few hidden fees that my family and I didn’t agree with #1 being I paid per night (not per person) for a house that sleeps 8 (it even states online it sleeps 8) I had 6 on my check in agreement then we added one other person and they charged me another $40 when we got there and they found out we had a 7th person. I went back online and NOWHERE did it say I was paying per person and if I brought an extra it would be any extra money..... I didn’t pay person I paid per night..... #2 being inside the house is a cleaning checklist and it says if you do that then you would not be charged a cleaning fee. Well I had already been charged a cleaning fee when I reserved the house so I asked the owner about it and he stated that, that was old.(well why was it still stuck on the board inside when he lives right beside the property and can easily go in and take it down.). Like I said I enjoyed the stay but was not happy with these hidden fees.
BE TRUTHFUL on contract ! (There are no hidden fees )
When i told husband about the extra charge he had no hesitation paying, and said they didn't know the extra person was coming. ( That Happens all the time ) *Rental change , Price changes also.
Sorry if she had indicated 7 on the contract, The $20. charge extra per. night would have been applied. These are LEGAL CONTRACTS i could have denied the 7th person access. ( You can find this standard in the industry, I have been doing this for 13 years, I have seen them try to sneak in 12 people & 4 dogs in my 3 BR.
I have had them say 1 person for 3br for a week ?
I gave this property 4 stars due to cleanness. Spider webs were everywhere, kitchen cabinets and drawers needs a good cleaning inside. Bathrooms and under beds all over needs a good deep cleaning! Location is right next door to the owner, so you don't have too much privacy.. But the positives was the location next to the river was AMAZING! Had working wifi and cable, hot tub was very relaxing but their was sand in the bottom upon arrival (and this blamed on us by the owner during leaving).
I will stand on 12 years in VR Business & my 274 5 star reviews with 3 properties. Owner Bruce
Nice Getaway Weekend Place
We had a great time. Not complaints but comments for others parking right next to the road was OK for us with no kids. The kitchen set up works great for a group. Living room area big enough for a group to spread out. Only thing that could really be improved on is the sliding glass door to the deck keeps coming off the track. The hot tub and deck are really nice over looking the river. And access to the river was easy and safe. Owner very responsive.
Glass door had an INK PEN in the bottom track ???Another 5 Star review Thank You!
Thank You !Bruce
Great place and location
Had a lot of fun in the lake
Loved the sound of the river and the view.
House was nice. We all loved the hot tub. It's a little close to the road for parking.
Bat Cave House
The area is beautiful. Owners were very friendly and accommodating for each request.
Didn't say much but it was all good!
Thanks Owner Bruce
