This mountain home is newly constructed and awaiting the arrival of you and your family.

Located in North Carolina's Bat Cave community, the home’s scenic views of the Blueridge Mountains and Reedy Creek can be seen from any room in the house. This mountain home is located, only 11 miles off of I-26, just 30 minutes from Asheville, and an hour and a half from Charlotte, NC.

Have a fun night in with the family by cooking in the brand new gourmet kitchen or grill out under the stars on the large deck.

When looking for an outdoor adventure, Hendersonville has a large number of options such as tubing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, and hiking trails. The home is also only minutes away from Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure, which was ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. Also located nearby is Pisgah National Forest, which has over 500,000 acres of protected forest, featuring hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails, waterfalls, and beautiful mountaintop views. It is near several excellent golf courses, including Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort, which is rated by Golf Digest as one of the top 50 golf destinations in the US.

This mountain home is perfect for any season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter where a cozy cabin feels just right. Stay warm by the gas log fireplace or relax in the jetted tub in the master bath. Visit in the summer when the weather is a perfect 75 degrees all the time and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful sunsets on the scenic porch overlook. No matter the season, this mountain home and the city of Hendersonville have so much to offer, whether it is plentiful choices of restaurants or shopping, or a fun outdoor adventure you and your loved ones will never forget!

About Esther Dennis

My wife and I recently purchased and renovated this charming mountain getaway. We were immediately drawn to the amazing views and nearby creek. The wrap around porch was what sold us - we could see for miles and the seasons always give us something new to see. Our daughter really enjoys exploring the nearby hiking trails and waterfalls. We try and provide as much as possible in the vacation homes because we don't like packing! So there are a lot of amenities in our vacation homes you might not find when renting from other people. We hope you enjoy the Lady Bug House as much as we do!

Esther Dennis purchased this house in 2010

Why Esther Dennis chose Asheville Area

We love hiking and enjoying the scenic views of the mountains, so we decided to purchase a rental property in Hendersonville. It is great for escaping from the summer heat and also visiting during winter to see the snowfall in the mountains. We're centrally located close to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, downtown Hendersonville, and a short drive to Asheville, NC. Being close to these locations gives us a lot of options when we travel.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the Lady Bug House offers our guest access to things they might not get at other vacation homes, like an air hockey gaming center, wii station setup, satellite tv, and other electronics that keep kids happy. We also have fishing rods available for the more adventurous guests. We want your trip to be memorable and fun!

Dont look anymore..this is your place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and the owners! You cant find a better place to stay...whether it be for 2 or a family of 12. You are sitting on top of the mountain surrounded by peaceful streams and fresh mountain air. It is covenient to everywhere...Lake Lure, Hendersonville, Chimney Rock and a short ride to Asheville. The property is immaculate...inside and out. The house is big enough to feel your privacy even if you have a large family. There are two living rooms..one on each floor and a shower big enough for a small army on the first floor! Incredible views with a porch full of rockers! If you are seeking a mountain getaway..dont look any further...this is your place!

Wonderful mountain home with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 12 and this beautiful mountain home was perfect for our large party. The home is about 20-25 minutes from Downtown Hendersonville. If you like to apple pick, this is the perfect location as it's located right off of the road where many apple orchards are located. The kitchen is very well stocked. Bedrooms were very spacious with comfortable beds. One of our favorite spots was the firepit located below the home/across the street. We also enjoyed a short walk down to the creek. Communication with Esther was great. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, clean property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home in August with our family of 6, grandparents and 2 friends. Everyone from the 5 year old to the 75 year old loved it. Clean, nice quality linens, great views, peaceful porch, well-stocked kitchen, great location - what else could you ask for? The downstairs area was wonderful for the kids - teens loved the TV room and air hockey table. Our little ones were thrilled to find some toys to play with and even some children's books and games. We all said we wished we could have stayed longer. 4 days was not enough time! We will come back to this home again, and make a week of it. Thank you to Esther for a beautiful home and great communication.

'Tis was a perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a short and memorable vacation at Chimney Rock. 2 families, 9 is us. Very spacious house. Felt like there's separate room for every one of us. Ideal family room floor plan and furniture setting for those late night family game. And a large deck that provides stunning views from 3 sides of the house. Esther has stocked everything that a family of adults and kids would need, away from home.

And there are so many activities to do within driving distance - hiking up chimney rock, kayaking in lake lure, amazing waterfalls in Pisgah forest and all around Asheville and vibrant scene at Asheville downtown. Highly recommended trip and property to stay in.

Pleasant stay outside of Hendersonville

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 11 enjoyed our stay outside of Hendersonville. The large living and dining area fit our group nicely. We cooked inside a lot because there were children from ages 2-9, and it was easier that way. The two master bedrooms and bath rooms were very nice. It rained quite a bit while we were there, so we were inside much of the time. The kid games and activities were nice to have available. The main drawback to the whole layout was that one couple had to sleep in a room with double beds, and also have a kid with them. So three couples with lots of kids are forced to be are very close. Otherwise, the property was fine. The kids particularly enjoyed the fire pit across the road.

Lady Bug House guests will have the opportunity to enjoy nature's majesty in the Blue Ridge Parkway. With Mountain views of all four seasons the house is perfectly seated close to lots of activities for any weather. Nearby is Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, downtown Hendersonville, and Asheville, NC. Lake Lure offers a variety of water sporting activities and hiking. The movie Dirty Dancing was filmed in Lake Lure so there are tours and fun photo treks for family outings. Chimney Rock is one of the mountains most breathtaking views - it's the perfect day hike to see small wildlife and gorgeous scenery. Apple picking is a big deal in Hendersonville. Every year there is an Apple Picking Festival and some of the best apples are the ones you pick yourself! Don't miss Asheville, NC less than an hour away - with great shopping, art festivals, and the Biltmore House you don't want to miss this historical beautiful city. Visit the Lady Bug House with your family and see what adventures you can find!
