  • Rumbling Bald Resort was like finding a diamond in the rough. We struggled to find a location that met everyones’ needs (the bride, the groom, AND the parents!), but RBR has something for everyone. We really wanted a place where our guests could get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and we could enjoy our time together. And boy did we accomplish that!!! Just be aware that cell phone service can be shotty at times, so communication could be tough. The people and service at RBR were spectacular. Paula was such a delight to work with. She was very prompt in responding to our questions and emails. She was extremely organized and you could tell that she ran a tight ship. She was able to work with us to get some of our unique requests, that added to the memories of our special day. Our guests were able to reserve a lot of cabins/houses through VRBO but Gail at the RBR reservation desk was AMAZING when they reserved properties through RBR. She was so knowledgeable and helpf...

  • My son was supposed to be married during the pandemic. Of course it had to be cancelled. Paula Benson and her team at Rumbling Bald could not have treated us better. They simply moved all of our planning…..rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, bonfire on the beach, pontoon boat, wedding, all the guest accommodations, golf……..to the next year. This is no small thing. The wedding weekend could not have been better. The entire staff at the resort came through for us. The rehearsal dinner was set up without me lifting a finger. The bonfire on the beach was “one of the most fun nights in years” according to the groom. And the wedding? Well, perfect! Combine the staff with the location and the views any you have the recipe for a great wedding. I highly recommend Rumbling Bald.

  • This venue exceeded our expectations and was prime in being budget friendly, secluded, beautiful and overall excellent. Everything was perfect and Paula, the coordinator, was one of the finest people I worked with throughout wedding planning. Five stars all around!

  • We booked Rumbling Bald Resort after an extensive search of venues in the Asheville/Lake Lure area and the Raleigh/Durham area. Rumbling Bald resort has everything you need and provides a great location for families from all over the country to meet especially when family and friends are located all over the world. The resort is also well located near Asheville, Charlotte, and Greenville which makes travels to the location a lot easier. Not only is the location central to a lot of the airports, Rumbling Bald provides all the services you need for a wedding (from Hair and Makeup, Food, Beverages, to meal and drink planning). The food prices are very reasonable for the high quality of food you get and the open bar packages are very reasonably priced. Rumbling Bald also has a beautiful wedding gazebo with a background of beautiful mountainous landscapes and a shimmering lake. The reception site (Lakeview Terrace) is an open air terrace that can be closed during the cooler months wh... Read more

  • A random google search of venues in North Carolina led me to Rumbling Bald, and I am so glad that it did! After looking at pictures online, my now husband and I decided we wanted to visit this venue, and see it in person. We saw the venue first on a cold, rainy December day and still fell in love with its beauty! From then on, we created a partnership with Paula and the Rumbling Bald staff where they were always helpful with our questions planning our special day. Planning a wedding when you live a couple hours away from the venue can be challenging, but Paula and the staff here made it very easy for me. We used the recommended vendors provided to us, and they were all wonderful! We have had so many of our wedding guests talk about how beautiful the venue was and how fun the wedding was overall, and that is exactly what we wanted! I highly recommend Rumbling Bald resort as your wedding or event venue :) We are excited to go back to visit for our anniversary trips!

  • Absolutely the most beautiful wedding venue. A mix between water (lake lure) and mountains makes for a beautiful location. The terrace for the reception offers coverage but still allows for beautiful views. Guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to, highly recommend. Paula is great to work with as well, very responsive to questions. Food was delicious as well!!

  • I am so glad that my random "google" searching for mountain venues on the lake led us to Rumbling Bald. We had looked at a few other venues but as soon as my we pulled into the venue my dad said "This is the one I can already tell." We got so many compliments on the venue, the view, the food, etc that my list could go on. One thing that drew us to this venue was there there was so much "natural" decoration to it you didn't feel the need to over due it or have to stress about all the little things. One thing to make sure you do is get a good wedding planner for the day-of because they don't actually provide one, and be cautious with the linens, their definition of ironed is not what the usual definition is. But the linens are pretty so just factor in that you may have to spend time steaming the linens. It should definitely be noted that the food is delicious and our guest still can't stop talking about the food and the views are to die for. The staff is so sweet and Paula, who the bride...

  • This venue is all about the scenery. You cannot beat the views of the mountain, lake, and beach. Most of our family and friends rented houses on the resort, which was very convenient, and most people turned it into a mini vacation. The golf courses are also very pristine. The main sales rep that you deal with at the resort is Paula. She was not the most accommodating person to work with, but everything got pulled together. The first time we went to take a tour of the venue, we drove a couple of hours to get there, and she blew us off because she scheduled a tasting at the same time. Luckily, her other staff members were knowledgeable and friendly, such as Adam and Lisa. It was the other staff that really sold us on the place. We would later find out that Paula’s lack of communication was a common theme between us and with her coworkers. I think a lot of the issue was that she was working from home, while the rest of the staff were in the office. She takes awhile to respond to e... Read more

  • My daughter had her wedding at Rumbling Bald. The venue is lovely and the wedding staff was helpful. I had 3 complaints. First, we booked hair and makeup for the wedding party, including me. They left my makeup to last and gave me to a novice makeup artist who was truly terrible! I paid a lot to have it done. On top of that, it took so long I finally walked out because I was missing all the time in the bridal suite helping my daughter get ready! I came in too late and she was already dressed! I was very, very upset about that. And I ended up taking everything they did off and rushing to put some on myself. Secondly, there wasn't a place to have a separate cocktail hour, so they had it in the reception area. Guests came in and sat at their tables instead of mingling and most guests didn't even know there were hors d'oeuvres being passed! We paid a lot for them and most people didn't even get to try them. I would suggest doing your own makeup and asking for them to put aside a... Read more

  • My husband & I were planning a small destination wedding & I just fell in love with RBR. Once we visited, we were sold. It is beautiful & it has a small space for an intimate wedding. The event coordinator is so sweet & she really does care, but several times we had to wait on a response to our questions. A few weeks before the wedding, the bridge & creek at our ceremony location flooded & washed away. When we asked questions about alternate plans or places to take our bridal photos, we were given very vague responses. While the flooding is nobody’s fault, we feel that the communication afterwards could have been a little better. Everyone at the resort was very friendly, we just felt like our wedding was pushed aside because it was smaller & we weren’t paying as much as the other weddings taking place that weekend. I would recommend the resort for someone wanting a larger wedding, but if you’re wanting a smaller wedding (ours was 25 people), I would suggest looking elsewhere.

  • Rumbling Bald was a great choice for our November wedding. The views of Lake Lure amid the fall foliage and mountain backdrop were absolutely breathtaking. Paula was a delight from start to finish and very committed to making sure everything went smoothly. The guests really enjoyed the beautiful space, and the linens, food, and drinks were all perfect. Thank you!

  • Rumbling Bald was an amazing venue to have our wedding. The location is stunning between the lake and the mountains, especially with both the gazebo and reception area overlooking both. Plus, the staff there are absolutely fantastic to work with! Paula was great, showing us around, answering all of our questions leading up to the big day, and being around if we ever needed her the days around the weeding as well. John, the catering manager, was great as well, making sure that everything was laid out the way we wanted, and being helpful with the ceremony as well, actually (timing and whatnot). The bar tending staff were also fantastic! We got so many complements (especially about them) about the entire event, location, food, staff. (We also had our rehearsal dinner at the resort, which was just more of the same, great location, great food, and great people.)

  • • A spectacular natural setting. The locations of the wedding gazebo, reception area and pavilion (used for Friday’s rehearsal dinner) have breath-taking views of the lake, forests and mountains. The natural beauty is hard to match at another venue. • Beautiful Lake Lure offers water sports and pontoon sight-seeing. • Wonderful side-trip opportunities for guests – Chimney Rock, Asheville and more. • Two “national class” golf courses in outstanding condition with affordable green fees. • The chef who prepared our rehearsal and reception dinners delivered meals everyone raved about… a challenge with small groups and usually unheard of when serving 200 people. • RB provided us a list of wedding planners. We chose Mary Bell who was among the best people we’ve ever worked with. We believe any bride AND venue will benefit from Mary’ planning / implementation expertise. This resort should receive five stars within a year. They are in transition with a new s... Read more

  • Before our wedding we went to make a payment and found out the person we had been planning with was no longer with RB and someone new was in the position. RB never contacted either of us directly of this change. The new person (Paula Benson) was helpful with informing us of things the previous person never mentioned. We had our tasting and it was amazing! We looked forward to dinner and being able to take home a meal that we were told we would receive upon our departure. Not only did we find out shortly before our wedding that they had hired a new chef but we never got the new tasting we were told we would receive. Then on our wedding day we had to ask to have people come clean downstairs because rooms and bathrooms had been left nasty from the wedding the previous day and had to request for light bulbs to be replaced that were out. Which brings us to the dinner we had been looking forward to! We ordered the pasta station with dietary needs noted on file due to the maid of honors sever... Read more
