“Golf”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Just returned from our first trip to Rumbling Bald and all I can say is wow.
I had won an overnight stay in a 2bdrm 2 bath Villa, Dinner Cruise, and 4 rounds of golf. I called and Deb in reservations was fantastic. She put us in a great villa overlooking Rumbling Bald course. It was clean and comfortable. We had dinner at Lakeview Restaurant instead of the boat because of not enough people had signed up, but no problem, the service in the restaurant made up for our little disappointment, and we sat on the terrace overlooking Lake Lure.
We managed to squeeze in 9 holes before dinner at a very reasonable rate.
Got up Saturday morning and played 18 at the Apple Valley course which was also beautiful. Lunch was at the 19th hole Luna Del Sol. The only disappointing thing I could say was I only spent 1 night.
We will be back!

Room Tip: Just tell Deb what you're looking for and she will help. There are families, weddings, full time...

We have been vacationing at Rumbling Bald for several years and always enjoy it. The kids love the pool and beach area and the golf courses are always in great shape. Debi Earley in reservations has always been extremely helping in making sure our accommodations are exactly what we want.

Had a wonderful experience at Rumbling Bald Resort. Beautiful area in the mountains. We were greeted by friendly, welcoming staff who took great care of us and answered all of our questions. Stayed at Apple Valley, which is a very short drive to the main area where all the activities are. Our room was very clean and comfortable. They had towels, sheets, soap, shampoo, blankets and pillows. We had no problems at all. The resort has many amenities and the food at the restaurants were very delicious. Lakeview Restaurant is a must. Again, friendly staff. Golf courses were very nice, although we did not play. We enjoyed the scenic lake cruise. I would recommend the resort to anyone. We are already planning our next trip to come back.

So far a bad start. Were told we had wifi; we didn't and needed it for work reasons. No phone in condo; had to go to street to use cell. Apparently some condos are run down but cost same as other units. Couldn't get us wifi because those units were not cleaned and the cleaning staff had gone home for the day. Given another condo that had average furnishings. Hope golf course is better experience!

We rented an efficiency condo in Apple Valley Villas for a family wedding weekend. The keys did not open the unit. Unit was re-keyed for new season but no one bothered to see if they worked. Unit smelled musty and moldy. Outside porch light was broken which was dangerous coming home in dark, on steps and in pouring rain. No blow dryer in unit, which was annoying as we had called resort several days ahead verifying this. Starter supply of soap, toilet paper, Kleenex, but we were given a half dollar size bar of soap for three nights. Resort after hours guest services didn't answer phone, so we drove back to registration to deal with problems. Complaints of broken porch light ignored. Would we have been ignored if someone had fallen coming home at night? I thought the lake area was beautiful and exercise room was well equipped. Had we not been attending a wedding, we would have checked out and found somewhere else.

Room Tip: No room service. You are given a set of towels for each person for length of stay. You need to ask i...

I've been up to Rumbling Bald for a guys weekend of golf the last two years. This place is awsome. The first year we stayed in a villa right on the Bald mountain course and the second year we had 7 guys and rented the Terrace House. Both had plenty of room, centrally located and walking distance to the pro shop and both restaurants. The pool table in the house was a plus. Legends Pub is also great for an after round drink on the back deck and dinner too. Golf courses are great. Bald Mountain is right on the main grounds and Apple Valley is only a mile away. Courses are not overly difficult and offer a very fair test of golf for all different types of golfer. My group varied from about a 20 to an 8 handicap and everyone loved both courses. Great scenery on both as well. Both times we were there in September and courses were in great shape even after the hot summers. Ask for Debi when you set up your trip. She was extremely knowledgeable about the resort and was very helpful with her recommendations on a place for our group to stay. She also set up all the tee times for us which was awesome. Definitely a great place to go you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Anything on the golf course is always nice.

We stayed at Fox Run unit 28. The unit was very nice, despite finding a dead roach near the door. The welcome handbook actually mentions that there are wood roaches in the area, but that they would not survive long indoors even if they made it inside. This held true for our visit as we did not encounter another one during our week long stay. We went with our 2 kids and another family of 4. We stayed very comfortably and felt no lack of privacy. Unit 28 has 2 terraces offering a very nice view of Rumbling Bald Lake.

I don't golf, but the resort sits on a golf course so I'd imagine it would be a great place for golfers to visit. Even so, there were many activities on-site. Unfortunately, I felt the resort tried to nickel and dime us a bit. For example, towels at the pool were $1 a piece. The minigolf course cost $5 per person. This spring has been rather cold and it was still very chilly when we visited and it was still very early in their season. That kept us from taking advantage of such amenities as the outdoor pool, which featured a mini-lazy river that my kids were excited about or the small beach. Some of the restaurants were still closed. I'd recommend visiting a little later in the season when the weather is a bit warmer.
