They came through pandemic and all

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…… 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.

Amazingly beautiful venue, would absolutely recommend!

Rumbling bald was absolutely the most incredible venue my husband and I could have ever dreamed of. We are a very relaxed couple that love the water and mountains, and this was the perfect combination of what we were looking for. Our guests could not stop talking about how incredible the food and the views were. Our only goal was for everyone to have fun and the venue absolutely helped us exceed that goal. From my perspective, there is not another venue in the Carolinas that could provide the ambiance and experience that rumbling bald does (especially for the extremely reasonable price point). Jess Wessinger, the sales manager, could not have been more kind or accommodating.
