We stayed at Rumbling Bald with a group of people who were all attending a wedding nearby. We arrived late in the day, after traveling ten hours. Our room was sweltering and the AC didn't work. It was dusty. No one was at the desk. After a sleepless night, we complained in the morning, and repair men were sent.They concluded... More

Great resort. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our unit was comfortable but lacked cooking utensils...could've had a few more pans. The washer did not go through spin cycle so we had to do by hand and then dry.

We really enjoyed our week at Rumbling Bald. I found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything I needed. The beds were comfortable and had good storage. The setting was pretty and we really enjoyed the Lazy River. They also have tennis, three pools, minature golf, lake access, spa, and golf.

The room left a lot to be desired. There were cob webs and dirt on the baseboards which indicated that the place had not been cleaned well. The wallpaper in the bathroom was curling off the wall and the blinds in the bathroom were broken. The resort was really nice the room would not be my choice.

We were there on a golf outing with a group and were assigned to a villa at Apple Valley. Upon arrival, the AC was not working. There was a make-shift fan in the room that didn't work either. I opened the refrigerator only to discover a fly swatted in it. That came in handy to kill the wasp on the... More

We spent a week with our 2 kids at this resort and there was always something to do. We really enjoyed the pool and lake side beach. The location was also a good jumping off point to do many other activities such as horse back riding, hiking, and taking a day trip to Asheville. The condo we renting was a... More

This resort made the trip very pleasant. I was able to play golf and visit the beach and children's water park. We have already put a deposit on one of the homes for rent along the lake thru the resort which gives full use of all resort functions!

The room was 265.28 for two nights. I thought I was staying in the resort, but had to drive about 1.5 miles away from the security gate at the resort to get to the villa. I would think if you are staying at the resort you would be on the secured side of the security gate. When I got to... More

We stayed for two nights passing through on our way home to Florida. We originally booked a hotel in Asheville but were unhappy with the location and lack of scenery. We found Rumbling Bald online and were blown away by the photos of the amazing mountain and lake views so we decided to take risk. The views did not disappoint.... More

We recently had a semi spontaneous family get together with relatives in Asheville, NC and others from SC, so instead of booking in town, I went for a cabin in the woods an hour out of town with room for a few others to join us. We stayed in the Klco cabin that was outside the security gate at 165... More
