More Bat Cave....
There is not much in the tiny village of Bat Cave - some old buildings that have long since seen their heyday, a post office and not much else. This Victorian era building sits down the street from the Apple House and across the street from the Broad River. I was not able to uncover any information as to the history of the place other than it was an inn in years past. This area was a resort, for those who lived off the mountain as we say, since it was near the river and close to the towns of Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.
Apparently there were several inns in the area, most long gone. This place is now a tourist gift shop and provided great photos of the front porch, architecture and merchandise for sale. Pumpkins, apples, gourds and potted mums line the front porch with welcoming benches and rocking chairs scattered among the items for sale..
