My husband was in a golf tournament at Rumbling Bald, so we decided to make a mini family vacation out of the weekend. We stayed in Apple Valley Efficiency Unit #16. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into this unit. The decor was quaint and appeared to be well taken care of. The back porch was super cute. There were herbs, such as basil, oregano, parsley, and others growing in containers. I loved this! I wanted to snip a few to bring home, but wasn't sure that was appropriate. If we return to Rumbling Bald, we will definitely stay in this unit again.
The Resort itself was fun too. We had an excellent time kayaking on the lake. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the golf courses, although he did like the Apple Valley course the best of the two. I do, however, have a few complaint, and thus the reason for only giving the resort 4 stars. First, they have a lazy river, but you have to either provide your own float or purchase one from their snack bar. They are $6 each. I feel as though they should provide floats for everyone to use and return. I have never been to a resort where they had a lazy river but did not provide floats. The second complaint about the lazy river is that there were bees flying all around. I asked the pool attendant if they were bees and she confirmed, but told me they weren't aggressive. It made me very nervous for my family to float in the river with all those bees, and I finally decided we would not go in the lazy river. This did not make for happy children. The final complaint is that we had to pay to play mini golf. We have stayed at a lot of resorts, and things like this are usually inclusive in the fee you pay to stay at the resort.
Overall, I feel these are minor complaints, and I must say that every person we came into contact with who worked at Rumbling Bald was polite and courteous. Our stay was great and enjoyable. We will definitely return!
