About Darren Blum

For nearly eight decades prior to its renovation, The Camp operated as Camp Mishemokwa where hundreds of children spent summers having all the classic first-time-at-camp experiences. In 2005, The Blum Family purchased the 150-acre property, spending countless dollars and tireless hours rebuilding, renovating, and giving The Camp a new lease on life as an exclusive vacation rental property.

Darren Blum purchased this house in 2005

Why Darren Blum chose Bat Cave

There is nothing else like it! The Camp artfully combines luxurious, comfortable accommodations with a 150-acre fun park (complete with heated pool, a 150ft water slide and a huge Social Hall/Arcade/Game Room!) set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The 4 homes on the estate can be rented individually or together for exclusive use of the facilities.

What makes this house unique

When you rent a home at The Camp, you not only get a gorgeous accommodation with all the comforts of home, but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site. There is truly something to do for every age group!

Guy getaway

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great place for families, guy groups, or any active group. With all of the sports available it was perfect for a 20th college reunion group. There is as much luxury as you want in the houses, and the dining hall makes a great gathering spot. If you have kids, there is a ton to keep them busy as well. We hope to come back soon.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
This was one of the best places my group has stayed. We were very impressed with the facilities, and there was always something to do. We enjoyed having our banquet in the social hall, and then enjoying a game of ping pong. The girls loved laying out by the pool, and the guys played a great game of basketball. Oh, The Water Slide. Amazing!!!

Mountain Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
I don't believe pictures or words can sufficiently describe what this property has to offer. There truly is something for everyone at The Camp. My first of many visits to The Camp was on a guys trip filled with unbelievable memories. After that trip, I realized I needed to experience The Camp with my family. Although our children range in age from 16, 11, 2 and my wife and I were amazed at how much we were all able to do both on the property, and within in close proximity to Bat Cave. Being very fortunate to have returned to The Camp several times and in each of the four seasons, I could not imagine staying anywhere else in the Carolinas. This is the most economic way of having a home away from home. I must say that no matter what time of year you are looking to travel, there are a lifetime of memories waiting for you at the The Camp NC!

Instant Tranquility - Relaxation at its finest

  • 5 out of 5
I am lucky enough to know the owner of the camp and am fortunate to have visited the camp at least 10 times ... so i am a little biased. Darren has created a piece of heaven in the hills - the camp has provided endless hours of enjoyment for our children, parents, siblings, etc. Plenty of activities, awesome grounds, amazing memories and more starts than you will see in a planetarium. You will never stay just once at the camp - i think about it while i work and want to go back again and again. You will not be diappointed.

We Love the Camp

  • 5 out of 5
The camp is a perfect venue for any get away!!! We have been there with and without children many times and always had a great time. The amenities are wonderful: cozy living spaces, outdoor waterslide, pool, gym, trails, close to chimney rock and Lake Lure, and so much more!!! The owners are very responsive to your needs and always available to answer questions and provide great advice on day trips and sights to see in NC. They make sure your "camp experience" is truly wonderful and relaxing. Your family will want to go back year after year - mine do!!

The Perfect Family Vacation in the Mountains

  • 5 out of 5
The camp is absolutely gorgeous. I must have went down the water slide 100 times. I couldn't believe it when I walked into a full-size basketball court/gym. I worked up a real good sweat and then did a few laps in the refreshing pool. The house itself is very luxurious and is decorated beautifully.

The listing on this site was extremely accurate and the pictures were right-on. I couldn't get over how big the property was. We had a campfire and made smores which brought me back to my childhood.

The kids can also play pool, ping pong, pinball and other games in the game room. Yes, I said a game room. Unlimited play....nice!

I would recommend this vacation home to anyone who wants to give their family a real cozy vacation in the mountains with unlimited things to enjoy. Talk about lifestyles of the rich and famous, this was awesome.
