We visited the somewhat remote Fox Run Resort located on the Rumbling Bald complex in Lake Lure, NC for a relaxing jaunt in the Mountains over Spring Break. Having previously stayed in the nearby Wyndham condos, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accommodations. We were in a two bedroom condo (Unit 33) on the periphery of the grounds overlooking the golf course. It was a tri-level design with the Master on the bottom, the guest bedroom on the main level and the dining, kitchen and living rooms on the upper level. The condo was clean, well maintained and functional with relatively new furnishings. The kitchens have recently been remodeled with stone countertops and new appliances. However, the baths and carpet were showing their age (that said I believe the carpets are scheduled to be replaced in the near future). The master bedroom had a plush king size bed, and was quite comfortable other than the room being considerably chillier than the upper levels. The guest bedroom had two twin beds. The condo itself had all that we needed to comfortably relax and enjoy the beautiful, view - both from the living and dining room and the spacious decks. Even though there were condos on both sides, it was still off season so we were pretty much alone. The resort has a nice indoor pool, outdoor pools, fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, restaurant, pub and golf course on site, as well a swimming and beach area on the lake with a variety of activities on the lake. The boys had a great time kayaking one afternoon. All this together with all the local attractions in the area make this a great place for both families and those looking for a quite, restful trip to get away from the hustle and bustle. It only takes about an hour to get to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, which we took in as a day trip. Although that is hardly enough time to enjoy all that Asheville has to offer. If you are there during the off season, the selection of restaurants is even more limited but adequate, but be sure to check out Chimney Rock for activities. It is just a few miles beyond the city limits of Lake Lure and looked inviting with a variety of eateries and shops. As long as you are not expecting a 5 star resort and are happy with simple, clean and comfortable accommodations then Fox Run fits the bill rather nicely.
