We stayed in one of the houses on the lake the resort rents out. The beach and pool area is great for kids. The home we stayed in was really dated. The dock was downright dangerous. Unfortunately we were only about 3 houses away from the hall/restaurant located waterfront on the resort and there were weddings both nights. The sheer... More

We reserved this 2 BR 2 BA condo at the last minute for a 3 night visit blindly, seeking a peaceful family getaway. It was just that and we had fun there. Close to Chimney Rock and other beautiful hikes, we had a great time together. The resort has 3 restaurants that are casual and family friendly as well as... More

Directions to the check in center are clearly visible, even when arriving in the dark. There are several check in centers so make sure that you pay attention. Check in was quick, efficient, everything was all set, envelopes, keys ready to go. Proper directions to the condo on an easy to read map, and if your GPS is up to... More

As others have mentioned, the accommodation here seems to be privately owned so I guess quality etc can differ quite a bit. So for reference, this review is for Fairway Villa 1001, which we were very happy with. We were looking for self-catering accommodation for our family for a few days while my husband did some work as part of... More

Married in Jan 2015 at this resort. The rooms we booked were terrible. No Heat in one, No hot water in another. Over Half the Guest Came down with the Flu. Needless to say the experience was not worth the expense. My advise if they are not responsive to your request before you even get there pick another place to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and we are so happy that you chose RBR for your wedding destination. The experience you seem to have had is far from what one could anticipate when planning their wedding or any event here at RBR. We will review what took place during your stay in January and see...

While this stay was not in the 'heart' of Lake Lure, it was very close and a very nice scenic route to get 'downtown'. The facility was great, no complaints. We rented 2 units and had 7 people stay comfortably. The grounds are beautiful, very close to a nice eatery on the property, near an apple farm and tons of... More

I'm a "Local" so I've never stayed at Rumbling Bald Resort. However, I recently had dinner there for an event where the Resort contributed 10% of the proceeds of the dinner to our local library. That in itself deserves an Excellent rating. There were 2 tables for the dinner. One table had apx. 20 people and one had apx. 15.... More

This was our 4th time at Rumbling Bald Fox Run. Fox Run is not to be confused with the Wyndham resort area. This Rumbling Bald resort Fox Run is right on Lake Lure, NC. We always enjoy our 1 week stay at Fox Run. We requested unit 93 again (and got it) as it is in a nice area of... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed all that Rumbling Bald Resort has to offer. We also want to make sure folks realize that neither Fox Run nor Wyndham are Rumbling Bald Resort. They are timeshare companies on Rumbling Bald Resort property but are not owned or managed by Rumbling Bald Resort. They are owned and operated separately. When a... More

I had a wonderful experience renting a kayak from Rumbling Bald today. Nancy at the Cabana was so informative & friendly. The gentleman in the office readied the kayak for me so I could start my workout quickly. A nice paddle & life vest were provided as well at just $20/hr. I paddled all the way to the middle of...

Debbi Early turned a potential disaster into a great golf trip, without the golf. The weather didn't co-operate but Ms Early made sure that all the details of our stay were handled and addressed every concern that came up with professionalism and a great attitude. I will be back.
