My wife and I spent a very pleasant week at Lake Lure and Fox Run. We were very impressed with the unit we had (2 br.) and it's environment. We had friends join us for the last 3 nights, and they were also impressed. While there are some things that could be updated, we didn't feel at all like we were "back in the 70's". Our only regret was that it wasn't really warm enough to have coffee out on our two wooded decks. The staff was great, both VRI staff and Rumbling Bald staff. We didn't realize that the Fox Run units are actually in the Rumbling Bald Resort. We did use the indoor pool and hot tub, and took the Lake Lure cruise (highly recommended). We climbed Chimney Rock and hiked the Donald Ross Nature Trail. We did get to Asheville for three different days. It is a bit of a trek to get there, but we found a great back way that took about 15 minutes off the slow, windy trip. We ate three times at Larkins/Bayfront Grill..loved it. Our first time in the North Carolina mountains, and we loved it.

We were diverted from the east coast by Hurricane Irene on our way there. Wyndham suggested we stay here since we were close by. We were not disappointed. Because of this situation, we did have to change units after 4 days which served only to reinforce that this was a great place to stay. Both units were very nice. One thing we really liked about them was the way the architects had used nature as decor. Even though the units overlook a gulf course (and we are not golfers), there was enough natural beauty in the surrounding wooded area to make up for it. In the living/dining area of the first unit, three sides had patio door sized windows in the tree tops. Lovely. Would have included a picture but we were in them. But have included other pictures. Both units were 2 story with living area, kitchen, bath, and double bed room up and master bedroom and bath down. The full kitchen was well stocked with table serving and cooking utensils. The master bedroom had its own deck. There were 2 decks in each unit. The second upper deck had a gorgeous view of the lake and mountains. The other was in the treetops so we could watch deer roaming below. There were only 3 things we did not like. First, the presentation of the second unit was not so good. There was a huge spill stain in the foyer and the outside windows had lots of cobwebs over them. Second, there was no wifi. One had to go to the activity center to use a computer. The walk was beautiful so we really didn't mind, we're just so used to having internet access at our fingertips while we travel. Third, there was a charge for putt putt golf - $5 per person. Speaking of that, if you like to be at a resort where there is lots to do, this is not the one for you. We thought we would be bored, but we were not. The lake and beach is small, there was a tennis court, cornhole game, putt-putt, and that was it. It is on a golf course and the price was reasonable at certain times. There were boat rides on a pontoon that was infomative and beautiful at sunset. But It was very relaxing.

Not sure why the other reviewers' experience was so bad, but we just recently returned from a 4 day, 3 night stay at Fox Run and had a blast. We had a large group of family and friends with us and the two units we occupied were perfect for a group of our size. Lake Lure is beautiful and the units are in a nice quiet, mountainous setting with privacy. We didn't see any mice ---- yes, there were a few bugs, but this is the mountains --- what else would you expect amongst the trees and tranquility of nature? This trip and the accommodations are definitely worth revisiting.

Just returned from several days at Fox Run; stayed in units listed in Wyndham’s inventory but managed by VRI. Arrived late Thursday night and stayed until Sunday. Reserved two units for 12 people but could not occupy second unit until Friday, so all 12 of us stayed COMFORTABLY in the first unit on Thursday night. Master bedroom on lower level was large enough to put a queen size inflatable mattress IN walk-in closet AND double size inflatable mattress at the foot of the king size bed. Two queen size beds in entry level bedroom and a pull-out sofa on upper level living room made this place ample for our group.
The units (FR0057 and FR0061) and the resort were among the nicest we’ve stayed in – and we’ve stayed in A LOT – all over the country and the Caribbean. The staff was wonderful – especially Monica – and tolerated us calling every few days leading up to our arrival to ask questions about things we read in the reviews or about moving around the reservations and unit locations for our convenience.
We are so glad we took the negative reviews with a grain of salt. There were NO mouse incidents and yes, we saw a bug or two but NOTHING that made us squeamish or disgusted. It is a beautiful and woodsy area and we saw nothing that would be unexpected in that environment. The beach, pool, sauna, and spa are ALL great. We don't golf but the courses looked inviting. Be sure to take the Lake Lure cruise – Big Jim is DELIGHTFUL and the cruise is worth far more than the $15 per person charge.

Room Tip: We loved our two units FR0057 and FR0061 -- 3 levels (split), several decks, and view of trees and woods

The area is beautiful, until you walk into the units. It had mouse waste under the sink, on the floors and on the counters. I know it is in the mountains and minor critters can wander in, but it should at least have been cleaned up, not all of the excrement was "fresh droppings". So we called to have traps set - which they did but they did not put bait in them - pretty much useless. Then while sitting one night not only were mice running across the floor (which we later found out they were in the sofa) roaches were crawling the floor and walls. Knowing the diseases carried by deer mice and roaches (we had to kill the mice ourselves so I know they were deer mice), not at all a pleasant experience. DEFINITELY DO NOT RECCOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!!!! The staff at the front desk was nice enough throughout our stay and offered to move us, but it seems to be a problem in all the units.
