Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Lake Lure
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I was in charge of the arrangements for 20 people on our golf package. None of our guys were ever here before nor did they know about Bald. We had three days of golf and 2 nights in great accomidations. Both the Bald Mountain course and the Apple Valley course were in great shape.
At night right across the street from our condos were picnic areas for grilling out and nice benches to sit and relax. Saturday night we enjoyed the D.J. at the pub and watch some great karoke singers including yours truly. The staff was great and ready to handle our requests with prompt service. We enjoyed a great luncheon on Sunday before our trip home, the food was excellent. We all enjoyed the hugh pools. All 20 guys really enjoyed the accomidations and the price. We have booked another trip later this year.

There was so much to do here that all of the families in our family reunion group were happy. We had over 80 people staying at 10 properties inside and outside the resort. There was always a place to gather and another activity to do if you were so inclined. The outdoor pool complex was very clean and had activity areas for toddlers, kids, teens and relaxing adults. Free compressed air hose to blowup all the toys! The Volleyball set up in the large pool was used extensively by our group. The pool and beach were popular, but not overcrowded. There was a nice fireworks display the night we arrived. My boys loved the tennis (small charge) and basketball (free).
There was a nice brisk Walking Group that met at 7am weekdays at the fitness center -- what a nice way to see parts of the resort while getting a workout. The group was a mixture of visitors and residents who had great advice about where to go and what to see. The Lake was typical of a Carolina inland lake -- nice but ... well not up to Michigan lake standards. But not everyone gets to live in the Land of Lakes the other weeks of the year like we do!

My family has stayed at this resort several times & plan to return again. We usually have stayed in the Maple Ridge area, but this year we were lucky enough to get the Mountain Loft area close to the recreation area. It turned out be an absolutely awesome vacation this year. My husband enjoyed golfing while my daughter & I enjoyed swimming in both the lake & the Trout Stream pool. We got mani-pedi's together, took a scenic boat tour of Lake Lure, got ice cream at the beach cabana, & ate lunch together during a break from swimming & golfing at the Legends grill. We only left the resort one time to go a horseback trail ride. They also offer a kid's camp on Wed, Thurs, & Fri with day-long activities for the kids. Awesome place to stay, it's always one of our very favorites!

Room Tip: Mountain Loft is great for kids, Maple Ridge great if you like a little quieter area. One-bedroom c...

Rental of the Stonehedge Units (4 total for 8 ladies) usually during the fall months is a plus.
Two great golf courses to pick from, many restaurants on property to choose from along with a friendly staff. We have stayed at this resort 4 years and always want to go back for the beauty and convenience and distance from the KNoxville area.

We love staying at Bald Mountain Resort! Been vacationing here for over 25 years. Dancing on The Green is a beautiful home. Very spacious and beautiful view. Love the porch swing after a day of golfing! However, we were a bit disappointed with the maintenance and upkeep of the place. Cleaning people need to pay closer attention to spider webs in and around the doors and windows and cleaning of bathrooms.

My siblings, our families and our parents (and in-laws) drove from all over the USA for a week at Rumbling Bald. We had never been to this part of NC before. We rented 2 houses, one from Lake Lure Realty (Sleepy Hollow Cabin) and one from the resort itself. The one from Lake Lure Reality was much better. It was higher end, had much better mattresses and AC that worked. Plus, our realtor, Robert, was basically at our beck and call. He even got our car started when the battery died.

The lake was good for toddlers who could walk into the water and play around. My brother was disappointed that there was no good place for distance swimming and the tiny leeches really started to gross us out by the 4th day. The pool was nice, but no where for laps except when it was adult only time (which was nice to have). The "lazy river" was a big scam - it was just part of the pool. I was really disappointed about that.

Wish there were more restaurants to choose from. The food at the only 2 was just OK. Also would be nice if there was a little store in the resort.

The did have nice activities for families and for the kids. The mountains were pretty, but the lake (man made) was a bit lacking (of course - I live in MI and I am surrounded by beautiful real lakes). Ashville was more than an hour away and there was nothing to do in the surrounding area.

We aren't sure if we would return. It was nice enough. Our house (Sleep Hollow) was great and it was nice to have the lake, pool, tennis. There really is no where to walk or ride a bike.

The staff that we interacted with at the Cabana was very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Book a house through a realtor not through the resort. Lake Lure Realty was great! House much bett...
