“A Vacation at Lake Lure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

My husband, two brothers-in-law, a sister-in-law and I vacationed at Rumbling Bald Resort from July 5 to July 12, 2014. Because none of us had ever been to Lake Lure or the Rumbling Bald Resort, we didn't know what to expect. We were impressed the minute we drove onto the well-manicured property. Flowers of all descriptions bloomed profusely in well-kept beds; the crape myrtles couldn't have been lovelier.

Because there was no cell phone connection nor internet where we were staying, we drove to the Rumbling Bald center twice a day to check messages. As I sat in a chair waiting for my family to finish their tasks, I watched their staff--Desiree, Tracey, and Dawn--working behind the counter. During the 30 minutes I watched, these ladies dealt with numerous inquiries of every description from many vacationers. In all cases, the ladies were polite, helpful, and smiling. Rumbling Bald Resort is a fabulous vacation spot, and one of the reasons is because of employees like the three ladies I mentioned above.

20 guys recently chose Rumbling Bald for our annual ryder cup golf trip. This was our 8th trip and the people at Rumbling Bald could not have made it more delightful. From the service, dining, facilities, amenities, and overall beauty of this golf resort, we could not have made a better decision than Rumbling Bald with it's two championship courses. Every person that works there has a smile! In the words of the great General Douglas MacArthur, "We shall return!"

We just returned from an annual guys (20 of us) golf trip July 16-20. Accommodations were nice but it only goes up from there. The courses were great. We played for two days in a steady (sometimes torrential) rain. Could not believe how well the courses drained. The staff is amazing. Very friendly and courteous. Case in point-during our round Saturday the starter came around on the course (we thought to tell us they were going to close the course due to rain) and brought each of our groups dry towels. The food was excellent. All we did was eat, sleep, play golf and have a great time. Great value for the $$. If you are looking for a place with great courses, great people and great food I highly suggest you check out Rumbling Bald. The STC Cup will be back. Thanks for all that you did for us.

The reservations agents / customer service agents were very kind and helpful. While in the area, we went to the lake's beach and stayed briefly, then went to the nearby pool for the second day in a row because my children had such a great time! Legend's has very good pizza. We stayed in Apple Valley Villas - next time, I would opt to stay inside of the resort and rent a golf cart for the week. We were only there for a day and a half - next time, we need to plan a longer stay.

Last time we were in the area we stayed on the south shore of Lake Lure. We were only able to come visit Rumbling Bald for a few meals and drinks while on that visit. Now that we returned we are happy to have stayed with the Resort. We chose one of their Apple Valley units which are perfect to couples. Small efficiencies or studios basically. Not inside the main gate, but still on property. We did not realize how large the Resort's footprint was until we traveled around with a Realtor looking at property and homes. Realtor was right on property and that made it easy for sure. Everything was really well kept and my wife has selected her top 3 properties if we purchase. We will be making this Resort and the entire area our new getaway. Hope to play Golf next visit as we were too caught up in looking for property this visit. Wish us luck and hope to make some new neighbors soon.

Room Tip: Lots of rooms online, but call prior to booking.

We visited over the 4th of July weekend and stayed in Apple Valley. I knew that our room would be a ways away from the rec center/check-in location but did not know it would actually be outside of the security gate and down the road. The resort is well run, and the boat cruise and fireworks were enjoyable. I do have to mention that I think the fees for canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, etc. are a little on the expensive side. You could rent the same things at a public park for half of what they charge, if not less. I also thought it was a little tacky to promote inflatables and firetruck rides for kids on the 4th of July and then charge for them. In the spirit of the holiday, that should have been included.

Room Tip: Apple Valley rooms are not scenic. Our room overlooked the road and those across from us overlooked...
