Second year at the resort. Lots to do for all ages. Very good golf, zip lining, pickleball, kayak, canoe, pontoon boats, pool with a lazy river. Expensive not for those on a budget. Great area with lots of rain this July and high temperatures.

While resort facilities were ok, our accommodations included dirty carpeting, dated furnishings and minimal toiletries. Room atmosphere was constantly damp with associated smell. Outside deck and entryway full of cobwebs. Very disappointed.

Stayed in a premium condo on the Apple Valley golf course. Beautiful views of the course. Nicely furnished. Enjoyed having access to the lake, kayak rentals, pools, mini-golf, restaurants and other amenities. Found that the pool at the Apple Valley development was mostly empty vs. the one at the lake area being pretty packed. The AC quit working one afternoon... More

We just returned from staying three nights on the resort and we wish we could have stayed longer. We rented a two bedroom/two bathroom condo that had a view of the golf course in front and the private fishing dock in the back. While on the resort we spent time on the beach, the pool and of course the great... More

We stayed at Rumbling Bald Resort in a 2BR unit for four nights the last week of June for a family get together. Although the decor was a bit dated, the unit was clean, neat and well stocked with expected hotel amenities. The most impressive features of the resort are the stunning views of Bald Mountain and the lake. The... More

Foreword: the original reservation for this trip was for Wyndham Fairfield Mountain. However, for reasons never made exactly clear to us, our reservation was ‘moved’ to Foxrun (Rumbling Bald Resort). This review applies to Foxrun (Rumbling Bald Resort) but this comment has been added in case you experience this ‘move’ too. Rumbling Bald Resort is located in a somewhat remote... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Nice beach and pools with music playing, well kept courts and outside games center, evening activities some nights of the week. Great boat tour if you get a chance (could provide a better discount for kids though). Tip-Since many units are privately owned, know what you are renting and its location. While the entire resort...

The drive to get to Rumbling Bald is a long one. Coming from the Asheville area, the drive is EXTREMELY curvy; coming from the Hendersonville area it is much less curvy. As others have mentioned, the resort is LARGE so expect to drive from one place to another within the resort. We stayed in the Fairway Villas and liked our... More

I have been to Rumbling Bald resort quite a few times in the past but this was first time that I went without my husband and took my 3 grandkids, ages 11,12, & 13. The resort has a M-F Kids Adventure Camp during the summer which gives the kids all sorts of activities each day so they can get their... More

The resort is very spread out and you have to drive to get to the pool, restaurants or any of the facilities. The map says 'not to scale' and it certainly isn't. It is 1.5 miles from Apple Valley to the lake along winding roads. We stayed at Apple Valley #38. The pictures of this studio are very misleading. In... More

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and found time get in some golf and quiet time. You bring up a good point with driving around property. We have 3000+ acres so no matter where you stay some guests may have to drive a minute or two to get around. Not all of our amenities are... More
