Crazy Vacation Rentals: The Camp in Bat Cave, North Carolina

As the largest metasearch site for vacation rentals, sure sees a lot of crazy listings. This is one of them. In North Carolina, this crazy rental has everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, you could ever want for your next big fiesta.


This mountain vacation rental in Bat Cave, North Carolina, right on the doorstep of the Hickory Nut Gorge, sleeps 60-90+ people on an 150-acre estate. It's only half an hour from Asheville and only 10 minutes from Lake Lure (which you might recognize from the film "Dirty Dancing") and Chimney Rock State Park.

While it technically has 15 bedrooms in 5 different houses, there are at least a dozen other spaces that can be converted into sleeping areas, making this the perfect spot for events such as weddings, reunions, work conferences, and other parties. So you can house your giant extended family (and then some) all in one place. And keep them occupied.

The Camp was built to entertain. Huge dining areas supplement the industrial kitchen so guests will have a full buffet to celebrate whatever it is you're partying for. With so much space, everyone can roam around freely and congregate in whatever area matches their style--the deck, the pool, the arcade, the gym, the fireplace, or the scenic mountains.

It features an outdoor tennis court and a full gym which can be converted into a dance floor to get the entire group busting out the moves. You've also got a heated pool, hot tub, arcade games all over, work out facility, tether ball, and Olympic trampoline...

...Oh, and did we mention the WATER SLIDE!?

This place is stacked with everything you would ever need to entertain a group of 100 people--and that's without even mentioning the hiking and fishing opportunities that any Blue Ridge Mountains resort would offer. This place is just wild.

This is one of the craziest, most fun vacation rentals out there so you've got to check it out for yourself to see more pictures that will remind you that you're never too old for water slides and arcade games.

Is the firetruck included? No idea, but with this crazy vacation rental, I wouldn't doubt it.
