Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Hendersonville - EAGLES NEST at The Camp

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 22 guests

EAGLES NEST has 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and a gorgeous granite and stainless steel kitchen. The house is beautifully furnished. It even has a 'kids wing' with bunk room (3 bunk beds), kids den with separate entrance, and a second refrigerator for snacks and drinks.

EAGLES NEST is one of 4 homes at The Camp, where a new adventure awaits you every hour. You'll be surprised at all you can do without ever leaving. You might go for a morning jog on the paved trail, take a few hits at the punching bag in the exercise room, shoot a round of hoops in the gym, and then take a dip in the heated pool or a run down the heated 150-ft long water slide, or a soak in the 8-person hot tub.

After dinner, you may find yourself engaged in a game of Scrabble in the social hall and then winding-down with a local brew as you listen to a friend play guitar by the campfire. This is the kind of camaraderie that you'll come to cherish at The Camp.

The amenities include:

Heated Swimming Pool (open May 1 - Oct 31)

Heated 160 ft long water slide (open May 1 - Oct 31)

Hot Tub (open year-round)

Tennis Court

Sports field (soccer, baseball, volleyball, etc.)

Multiple fire pits

The Camp is located near several of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. A scenic seven mile drive brings you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80's movie Dirty Dancing. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park, whose main attraction is breathtaking Exclamation Point which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining, whitewater rafting, and hiking trails.

You'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp. Food delivery is available from dozens of Asheville restaurants. The Camp also provides firewood for those cozy campfires and delightful s'mores that will make you giggle like you haven't in years. Ideal for large gatherings, multi-family getaways The Camp is private, well appointed, and brimming with loads of fun for all ages!

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.

Darren Blum purchased this house in 2005

Why Darren Blum chose Asheville Area

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.

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 (and then some!), but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site. There is truly something to do for every age group!

Great for Any Size Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of fathers and young daughters - maybe 36 of us. We absolutely plan to come back, and we feel certain that as many people hear the tales of awesome fun at The Camp will come. If your group involved anybody willing to camp under the stars (or in the gym) - there'd be almost no limit to how many people could enjoy the camp at once. We didn't even occupy the bunk house, but plan to next time! The Camp was self-contained outdoorsy fun. We spent all-day every day on the water slide and in the pool. We used the cool old gym for basketball and dodgeball games. The mess hall is huge, with enough area for 30 people to eat, some more to play the arcade games, and even more to hang out in comfortable chairs. We had the commercial kitchen of the mess hall, and the individual kitchens and refrigerators o the Eagle's Nest and the Cottage at our disposal. Like I said - we're all looking forward to September 2015 and introducing even more folks to The Camp Experience.

Great views, spacious accomodations, clean and updated areas. Lots of attractions and plenty of things to do. We take our baseball team every year for our retreat before the season and our high school aged student-athletes LOVE IT!
