Rumbling Bald Resort takes its name from the majestic Rumbling Bald Mountain, so called due to a 1874 earthquake that locals say caused the ground to ‘rumble’ and the mountain’s sheer rock-face that can be seen from miles away.  Nestled along the north end of picturesque Lake Lure, our resort is a unique blend of year-round resident owners, timeshare guests and vacation visitors who come to enjoy our winning combination of prime pastoral location, magnificent mountain views, and extensive amenities.  Over its seventy year history, the Resort has slowly evolved from a lone boathouse on a lake to a small jewel in a large corporate real estate crown by the early 1990s.  Fortunately, early residents recognized the potential of this special mountain community and took steps to prevent over-development.  When the opportunity arose, they returned the property to private ownership and self-management.  Today, the Resort operates as an active 3600-acre resort community that is keen to protect the relaxed, friendly, inviting and affordable atmosphere so valued by owners and visitors alike.  We offer guests the chance to choose the tone of their getaway experience, be it rustic or refined, front porch or first-class.  

With nearly 720 acres of crystal clear water, breathtaking views of Rumbling Bald Mountain and the beautiful Blue Ridge in the background, the lake and adjacent beach are our crown jewels.  The beach is the perfect place for fabulous family fun and fireworks, which is exactly what we will have on June 13th when we host the Summer Kick Off Celebration 2015. The highlight of the year, the kickoff is the first major event of what is sure to be an action-packed summer season, the Kickoff Celebration is open to the public and offers something for everyone.  Locals, visitors and guests take full advantage of the sandy beach, play area for the youngsters, fire pits, romantic wedding gazebo and, of course, the lake itself.  Bring a beach chair, family and friends to enjoy music, dancing and family games from 5-9 p.m.  All that merriment is bound to work up an appetite, so be sure to reserve your plates for the Low Country boil and cookout starting at 6 p.m.  Round out a fantastic day of fun in the sun by enjoying the marshmallow roast beginning at 8 p.m.  Lodging specials and custom packages are available to mark this festive start of summer.
