    Excellent wedding venue

    We had a wonderful experience with Rumbling Bald! Working with Paula made things seem so easy, and we greatly appreciated her insights. We had an intimate wedding with family, with less than 50 guests, and she knew all the right suggestions for us to make things perfect. Unfortunately, Covid has led to some changes at the venue, including the closure of the restaurant at the beginning of the week, but if those staying nearby like our family did plan ahead and make most meals “at home,” things will be just fine. The golf courses are beautiful!

    Excellent Venue

    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!
