Thoroughly enjoyed my stay; the apartment was exactly what I was needing during my recent visit to Lake Lure this past September. Everything was well arranged and made my stay more pleasant than should be possible when working! The staff is friendly and attentive. I do recommend and also hope the recent fires did not overwhelm some of the lovely... More

Beautiful property and setting, super friendly staff. Restaurants were very good. HOWEVER - Do not waste time or money in the Wellness Center or Spa. Outdated, dirty. Have to ask for towels, no shower toiletries, locker room changing area is one single bench, whirlpool walls were not clean, sauna didn't feel hot after 30 minutes inside. Difficult to get an...

Had a fantastic time. Most relaxing experience I ever had. Can't wait to be back. My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary and choose this location with really no expectations. We were not dissapointed. Magestic. The boat ride was really nice.

Just stayed at Rumbling Bald for a wedding. Our condo(apple 44) greeted us with an overwhelming musty odor, cob webs and enough dust on the ceiling fan to choke a horse. I also cleaned the A/C filer which was disgusting!. Did I mention the bleach stains on the carpet. Thank goodness this was a short stay. The resort is old... More

We stayed at Rumbling Bald with a group of people who were all attending a wedding nearby. We arrived late in the day, after traveling ten hours. Our room was sweltering and the AC didn't work.

Great resort. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our unit was comfortable but lacked cooking utensils...could've had a few more pans. The washer did not go through spin cycle so we had to do by hand and then dry.

We really enjoyed our week at Rumbling Bald. I found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything I needed. The beds were comfortable and had good storage. The setting was pretty and we really enjoyed the Lazy River. They also have tennis, three pools, minature golf, lake access, spa, and golf.

The room left a lot to be desired. There were cob webs and dirt on the baseboards which indicated that the place had not been cleaned well. The wallpaper in the bathroom was curling off the wall and the blinds in the bathroom were broken. The resort was really nice the room would not be my choice.
