The origin of our name....
Rumbling Bald Resort is situated at the base of Rumbling Bald Mountain. The mountain was originally called Bald Mountain, named after the sheer rock-face of the mountain. In 1874 there was a large earthquake at Bald Mountain, which in the words of the residents caused the earth to “rumble”. Soon after the earthquake, the name was changed to Rumbling Bald Mountain. This majestic mountain, which can be seen from miles away, towers over the north end of Lake Lure and the Resort that bears its name.
During the past 70 years Rumbling Bald Resort has has grown from a solitary boat house on a beautiful mountain lake into a thriving 3600 acre mountain resort community. Today we serve hundreds of guests from around the world who come to vacation and enjoy a tremendous variety of outdoor lake activities, soothing spa treatments, excellent golf courses, and the simple beauty of mountain life. Over time many guests have become property owners, many of which reside at Rumbling Bald Resort full-time and participate in the community on a daily basis.
