My husband I stayed here and had the best time. The cabin has everything you could ask for. Bruce and Marion were wonderful hosts, and went out of there way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We will be back next year! Thanks for sharing your place with us.

I drove throughout the night to semi-finalize a home/land purchase, we stumbled upon a gem on the river to rest our heads. Wow, couldn't have been more happier, you certainly could tell these river cottages were Bruce and Marion's little babies, they went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be, there's a reason why they...

Bat Cave Cottages was the most relaxing place I've ever been for my ?? Birthday Celebration: Music - Wine - and the Hot Tub was awesome. Our one bedroom Cottage had everything for the weekend, very clean. We will be back.

My wife and I rented the main cottage and set up our Christmas tree to celebrate the holiday with our son Matt who lives in Charlotte. He drove over with three friends. We had a ball! We all think we are chefs so the fact that the kitchen was set up so well was an added bonus. The deck is... More

We stayed at Bat Cave River Cottages in July 2011 with 4 couples and 1 child. The cabin was great and the environment was perfect! We fished, tubed and swam right below in the river and hung out non-stop on the gorgeous deck. The location is perfect- we hiked at DuPont National Park, Pisgah State Forest and Chimney Rock, took...

As motorcyle riders the 6 of us headed for the mountains of NC from Florida. We found a great spot at the Bat Cave River Cottages. We really enjoyed the evenings on the deck overlooking the river and the constant rush of the water or jumping into the hot tub . The days were filled with riding and with the... More

There's a diamond in those hills and this is the place !! It's located only 2 miles from Chimney Rock and 8 miles from Lake Lure and the place is fantastic. The owners, Bruce & Marion Baker, are the sweetest people in the world and their cottages are incredible. They have two separate cottages, both with 6 person hot tubs... More
