I am definitely a glass half full type of person and noted my concerns on our guest survey, so I feel inclined to post them here as well. Our family of three stayed four nights at RBR in the Apple Valley Villas. First, the website is beautiful and I think/hope that is what the resort is striving to be. However,... More

We rented a house in Rumbling Bald Resort our stay could not have been better. The house was beautiful and centrally located. The resort amenities were first class we especially enjoyed the kayak and pontoon boat rentals as well as the pools one had a lazy river. The two golf courses are beautiful mountain courses and were in very good... More

Very nice amenities and friendly staff. The massage was so-so. We selected the Lil' Biltmore house, in part, because we were assured it had internet access. The home had no phone or internet service, even after we complained several times. They said it was the home owner's responsibility to fix. Our college kids had homework that required it. I had...

We were only here for one night as it was a pit-stop onto our beach destination. It's a beautiful area, the condo's were unique. I saw three different condo's (via our large family) and non of the condo's had the same layout. There is not a Walmart within 45 minutes so try to bring all you need for your visit... More

We rented a beautiful and spacious cabin at The Rumbling Bald Resort, through VRBO. By renting from an owner, we were given access to all the resort had to offer: swimming pool, playground, etc. This is also a golf resort, which was very appealing to my husband and son. The cabin was a short drive, up the mountain. It was... More

The area is a little off the beaten path but a short drive to restaurants and activities. We took the onsite boat tour of the lake and it was very informative (Dirty Dancing was Filmed on Lake Lure). Legends at the hotel has outdoor seating. I had the turkey panni and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were... More

Great place to bring the family for vacation. The beach was nice and very clean and you can rent boats,kayaks and paddle boards there at the resort. They had tennis and basketball courts ,a fitness center and walking trails. They had three pools including the lazy river. Our kids were very disappointed with the lazy river. It was so crowded...

Its a great place to unwind and enjoy all the area has to offer. We love the golf courses the hiking, closeness to chimney rock, zipline, and everything about just relaxing there. The only negative i would say is the F&B department has no clue what they are doing. We were there over July 4th weekend. The main bar and... More

The condos were nice with plenty of space for a group of 4 or more. Kitchens were sufficient with plenty of utensils and appliances. There were outdoor grills within walking distance from every condo...that was nice. Renting canoes was pretty flexible and staff was nice. There were two pools, one more appropriate for kids and one had a small lazy... More

Setting is beautiful. Accomodations are showing a bit of their age and more attention from maintenance is needed. Good place to go to relax and enjoy and to be left alone. Gold courses are fun and were not too crowded. Main pool and beach become crowded - esp on weekends -- plan to see the sights, hike or visit the... More
