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!!

Bruce & Marion Baker purchased this Cottage in 2000
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!!

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.

The stay was great! The cabin was nice and the owners were great. I would definitely stay again!
Such a great place to relax and have fun at! We all had a great time and I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Great location. The scenery was breathtaking. Plenty of room and all the amenities you would need. The only draw back was the proximity to the road and limited grassed area for pets. The deck over looking the river was the highlight for me. Great place would recommend.
Thanks for the great review on Bat Cave River Cottages NC on the 3Br. Sorry I didn't get to meet them was out of town the whole stay, They should have checked out my 2Br. has a whole 1/2 acre on the river. 3Br. has a 80ft X 20ft grass down by river.
Cute house and wonderful owners that make sure you have a good stay.
Thank you ! for the review hope the information on locating a massage chair helps you.

Great location with everything we needed
This property has 3 bedrooms and a full, remodeled bath upstairs and downstairs is another full bath, remodeled kitchen, lovely living room with a futon and plenty of seating. the outdoor deck is covered and is a great spot to sit and listen to the water rushing down the river. The property owners live next door but do not bother you. We stayed for 2 nights with friends and that was a perfect amount of time before we ventured to Asheville. We found a great outside beer pub in the little town. So cute

Bruce Owner Operated makes a difference
Great cottage on the river
We loved the cottage and location! It had all that we needed to enjoy our stay. It was clean and spacious, plus the hosts were kind and helpful. Bat Cave is a quiet town, so the nightlife isn’t close, but was perfect for us.
Bat Cave has only about 300 people it is close to other Hot Spots if you want to party or just have your own on the river.
