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.

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.
The house and area was beautiful and clean. I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it.

Having the Broad River right there each morning, AMAZING. Each day, we were in the river...exploring parts of the Reedy Patch Creek. On our first night, we were all setting on the deck, and a juvenile black bear ran from the woods down into the river. We'd brought three people who'd never seen a bear. The house is close to several great areas to explore. Places explored: Chimney Rock, Hendersonville downtown, Lake Lure Flowering Bridge, and (the place I highly recommend visiting) Catawba Falls. Catawba Falls are roughly 30 minutes from house.
Bruce was a great host. When we first arrived, my husband was stung by some ground hornets. Bruce immediately handled the situation, and he even took a sting to the lip for it. When we needed an extra fan, he quickly got one for us, and he kept our trash cans empty.
The house was big enough for 7 adults and 2 dogs. We had a great time.
owners were fantastic!
Owners were fantastic, available for questions on where to eat and places to visit. Kitchen had EVERYTHING, supplies were full. The owner even let my kids borrow a tube for the beach. Super accommodating for our large breed dog, made this first family vacation amazing. Renters with children should know parking is right on a busy street, there is a fence, but just be aware.
Great time on the river!
We had a great week staying at this house. We spent the week enjoying the river views, trying to fish although the water was too high from lots of rain to swim it was still beautiful to see and hear the river. We discovered a yellow jacket hive under the wooden platform by the river after my husband got stung multiple times. I would check with the owner to be sure the hive has been removed before going in that area. Overall our stay was great and we’ll be back. Thanks to Bruce for a quick response regarding the bees and other things that came up.
Got those bees also I was on vacation at that time i told them where they could find spray. Sorry i wasnt there to help
