We stayed in mid March, and while everything was not open at the resort, there was enough operating to provide what we needed. Our condo in the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield MountaIns (a part of Rumbling Bald) was just lovely. Very clean & well maintained, and comfortable. We were especially happy that it was a free standing unit and both... More

We have been going to Rumbling Bald for over 6 years. We go in the summer time. We have 3 kids. The pool activities and camps are a great experience for them. They always have a blast. We have been several times on July 4th and have always had fun with all the extra events going on. We have noticed... More

My family has a year around condo at Rumbling Bald so we are sort of locals . Summers are great , staff plan kid activities well, family friendly pools and lake activities . Fall is beautiful here and the winters are relaxing. Restaurants and bars are very good.

We stayed in a wonderful, stand alone house in the Mountain View section of Rumbling Bald (412 was the unit number. We stayed here as an RCI timeshare trade). Upon walking into the house, the kitchen is at the entry way, easy for unloading food directly from car to kitchen. To the right of kitchen is the second bedroom with... More

We stayed in Rumbling Bald Resort and I was perfect Studio #40 was beautiful. Very clean and modern. It felt like a high end resort. It is amazing that it is less than a minute to everything at Rumbling Bald Resort.

This was our fourth visit to the area and our second visit to this property. This was our first during the Christmas season. We were prepared for the winding roads which are perfect for motorcycle riding. This property we learned from a previous visit doesn't allow the bikes to be driven past the guard gate. There is a parking area... More

This place is hidden jewel in middle of North Carolinas Mountains. The water was pristine and rolling hills perfect for cycling. I had really enjoy my first triathlon. Couldn’t choose better location.

In the hills immediately east of Hendersonville, NC and the foothills of the Blue Ridge, Lake Lure is a huge man-made lake that has created a lovely vacation spot for families and particularly golfers. Somewhat remote (off the beaten path and convenient to nothing), Wyndham Resorts created this portfolio of resorts in the 80's and have given them appropriate maintenance... More

Cabin and location were wonderful. Service at the pub restaurant was poor. They were understaffed and the waitresses were rude. We waited 30 minutes and left without drinks even served and our order had not started being cooked. We enjoyed the spa but recommend that they do confirmation calls or emails 1 day prior to the appointment. One of our... More
