It’s hard not to love a community named Bat Cave. And while Batman may not reside here, don’t let that keep you from exploring this modest yet monumental little unincorporated community. Situated in a wonderfully peaceful area between Chimney Rock and Asheville, NC, Bat Cave is close to life’s necessities but feels like it’s a world away from the stressors of the high-tech world.
Snuggled peacefully along Henderson County’s majestic Rocky Broad River just outside of Chimney Rock, Bat Cave is named after North America’s largest identified granite fissure, located inside Bluerock Mountain, also called Bat Cave Mountain. As its name suggests, the cave is home to several species of bats, including at least one endangered species, the Indiana bat. More than 300 feet long and approximately 85 feet high, the actual bat cave is now owned by the Nature Conservancy and is presently closed to the public to protect the bats, but this protection ensures the sanctity of the surrounding environment as well. Nature lovers will enjoy the myriad hiking trails and rugged slopes in the area, and lovers of flora will delight in exploring the forests in and around Hickory Nut Gorge, with their abundance of Carolina hemlock and chestnut oaks gracing the area’s many cliffs and ridges. Amateur botanists will marvel at the endangered plant species that still manage to thrive here, and everyone will delight in the glorious rainbows of springtime wildflowers that carpet the hillsides.
Bat Cave offers a wide selection of rental properties along the Rocky Broad River, as well as many farther inland. Vacationers can go rustic with cabin-sized tents or choose from a selection of opulent luxury homes. Either way, Bat Cave presents a rare opportunity to completely unwind. Whether you want to hike, fish, kayak, tube, go boating – or do plenty of nothing – Bat Cave is a quaint little paradise not to be missed.
