Your Home In The Mountains

During the past 70 years Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure has grown from a solitary boathouse on a beautiful mountain lake into a thriving 3,000+ acre mountain golf community. Today we serve hundreds of guests from around the world who come to vacation and enjoy a tremendous variety of outdoor lake activities, soothing spa treatments, excellent golf courses, and the simple beauty of mountain life.

Over time many guests have become property owners, many of which reside at Rumbling Bald full-time and participate in the community on a daily basis. You don’t have to visualize a developer’s proposal from a map, it’s been here for over 60 years and there’s never been a better time to make Rumbling Bald your mountain vacation home.

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.
