The most beautiful venue!
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!Sent on 09/08/2019

Great wedding venue!!
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!!Sent on 10/24/2018

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 brides work with is AMAZING. When we booked the venue there was a different person in Paula's place but she stepped in like she had been involved the whole time. Be cautious telling your guests were to stay, you can find a lot of AMAZING deals through AirBnB or HomeAway versus going through the resort (it tended to be a lot cheaper). The one thing that stood out to me about this venue, and remained true throughout the whole process, was that there are not a lot of "hidden fees". They are EXTREMELY accommodating within reason and little costs here and there are not going to pop up. Thank you Rumbling Bald for providing us the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 12/06/2017
