We saw a Bear at our Rehearsal!
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 helpful when taking care of our guests. The best receptionist I have ever experienced, hands down. Once we arrived, Briana managed all the details so professionally. She was able to accommodate all of our last minute requests exceptionally. And more importantly, she was able to keep the mother of the bride satisfied! The food was exceptional. Our guests could not stop raving about it. The only thing that I would suggest to someone who is thinking of having their wedding at RBR is to make sure there are plenty of portable fans on the Terrace if the temperature will be over 90 degrees. But I loved that we had smores on the beach and saw a bear at our rehearsal....priceless!!Sent on 01/15/2020

Everything you need in one location and with high quality!
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 which was perfect for our fall wedding without sacrificing the view.
As for planning, Paula did an amazing job communicating with us and pouring over every last detail. For the day of our wedding, we had Breanna managing the banquet and bartender services which was perfect. Our guests raved about how delicious the food was and efficient the bar service was especially with how many of our guests like to imbibe. This resort offered a great selection of houses/apartments/condos for our guests and a shuttle service for after the wedding to ensure our guests can relax and have fun. If you would like an all-encompassing wedding venue with delicious food and a great drinking package with many locations for your guests to stay, you should book Rumbling Bald Resort for your wedding venue. Hands-down I would book Rumbling Bald again for a vow renewal or recommend as a future site for anybody I talk weddings with.Sent on 11/13/2019

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
What a beautiful place to have a combination wedding ceremony and reception! The view is gorgeous, and the staff is friendly and attentive!
