Rumbling Bald Testimonials

Born Here

It was in the heart of the wooded Blue Ridge Mountains, that the sheer rock-face devoid of greenery gave Bald Mountain its name. But in 1874 the mountain shook and grumbled and groaned with a series of earthquakes, so folks started calling it Rumbling Bald Mountain. Today, the ancient mountain stands watch over the north end of Lake Lure, and gives shelter to our community that thrives at its feet and shares its name. From a solitary boathouse in 1956 to the sprawling mountain community of today. Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure attracts guests from around the world to enjoy the lake, the spa, the golfing, and the sheer beauty of this incredible place.
