We rented a condo in the FoxRun section. Had a gorgeous view of the lake and rumbling bald mountain. We had to drive down to all of the resort amenities but that didn't bother us! Took the 90 minute pontoon boat lake your with Nancy and it was great!! Would go again for sure!!

The Denver running group had an amazing 4 day stay at the Rumbling Bald Resort. The group was delighted to help with the Olympiad Festival and the hospitality was outstanding from the resort. Kristi Marher from the Rumbling Bald Resort made sure we had everything we needed. The amenities of the resort, swimming, paddle boarding, and the spa made it... More

The resort is great. We rented an apple valley condo which is 2 mi away from the resort. The condo was one large room which included fridge, microwave, stove etc, kitchen table and at the other end the king sized bed. We stayed 4 nights, but any longer we would want the larger condo. This was adequate and the owner... More

Visiting area for Dirty Dancing Festival. Stayed at an Apple Valley economy condo for 4 nights. Comfortable beds and plenty of room for me and my sister. New market just completed a month prior and the location was right down the hill from our unit. Employees are very friendly. The Lazy River Pool is especially nice and very clean. Loved... More

Spent a week in June with our family and there was something for everyone-ages 7 to 65plus. Golf was excellent, spa, lake activities, fitness center good and cost of house for 11 of us very fair. Only minor negative was very average food in restaurant, but drive to Asheville (about an hour) gave excellent options.

We had never been here but decided to take a chance, we rented a condo and it was great. We have 2 kids ages 9 & 11 and our golden. The condo was so great, right on the golf course, mountains all around. A beautiful screened in porch (where we spent most of our time). We also rented a golf... More

We were looking for a break from from our usual vacation of sitting on a beach and doing nothing for a week, and decided to try the mountains as an alternative. This resort is situated beautifully and the views of the lake and mountains are gorgeous. We participated in resort activities such as paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming and fishing. Also... More

Needed a relaxing day and called to get a same day appointment for a massage and eye enhancer treatment with green tea bags to reduce puffiness. It was just what I needed and the staff was professional, place was nice, would return. They were pretty full on the schedule so call early to make plans.

we booked thru booking.com and we paid for deluxe double room. Upon arrival we found the condo. very dated, probably good 20+ year old and there was nothing deluxe about it! Beds sagged and furniture looked right out of 60s. Patio was not even clean to sit on. Overall C grade for accomodation. Wi-Fi barely worked and there was no... More

We stayed in Lake Lure 2 weeks ago and like others who stayed at Lil' Builtmore, we found out somewhat rudely that there was no Wi-Fi access in the unit. The website for Rumbling Bald had indicated that it had Wi-Fi in the unit right up until the week after we left. I suspect that our complaints lead them to... More
