My husband and I chose the Rumbling Bald Resort because it was nearby to his cousin's Lake Lure wedding and her 5 year old son highly recommended the miniature golf course. Since this was going to only be a 2- night stay, we went unprepared when it rained both days... Lake Lure is truly lovely to visit and offers plenty... More

My room had an old box tv in it, needed to have carpet replaced, old box air conditioning, and no wifi in my room. The staff was nice. Food at resort was average. The resort has Wyndham signs out in front of the resort but it's not a Wyndham resort. I would not stay here again. Spend your money else... More

My husband, two brothers-in-law, a sister-in-law and I vacationed at Rumbling Bald Resort from July 5 to July 12, 2014. Because none of us had ever been to Lake Lure or the Rumbling Bald Resort, we didn't know what to expect. We were impressed the minute we drove onto the well-manicured property. Flowers of all descriptions bloomed profusely in well-kept... More

20 guys recently chose Rumbling Bald for our annual ryder cup golf trip. This was our 8th trip and the people at Rumbling Bald could not have made it more delightful. From the service, dining, facilities, amenities, and overall beauty of this golf resort, we could not have made a better decision than Rumbling Bald with it's two championship courses.... More

We just returned from an annual guys (20 of us) golf trip July 16-20. Accommodations were nice but it only goes up from there. The courses were great. We played for two days in a steady (sometimes torrential) rain. Could not believe how well the courses drained. The staff is amazing. Very friendly and courteous. Case in point-during our round...

The reservations agents / customer service agents were very kind and helpful. While in the area, we went to the lake's beach and stayed briefly, then went to the nearby pool for the second day in a row because my children had such a great time! Legend's has very good pizza. We stayed in Apple Valley Villas - next time,... More

Last time we were in the area we stayed on the south shore of Lake Lure. We were only able to come visit Rumbling Bald for a few meals and drinks while on that visit. Now that we returned we are happy to have stayed with the Resort. We chose one of their Apple Valley units which are perfect to... More

A coworker of my wife’s has points accumulated through a timeshare company; and, was able to use them through RCI, for us to stay within the Rumbling Bald Resort, on Lake Lure. We had a great time, staying there for a week. I used the fitness trail in the morning, with the outdoor-fitness stations; it was a .9 mile loop,... More

We visited over the 4th of July weekend and stayed in Apple Valley. I knew that our room would be a ways away from the rec center/check-in location but did not know it would actually be outside of the security gate and down the road. The resort is well run, and the boat cruise and fireworks were enjoyable. I do... More
