Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms/ 2.5 Baths with scenic lake and mountain views, with amenities

This nicely furnished condo which features spacious, casual living with majestic views of Bald Mt (from front) and Bald Mt Lake (from the rear) is ideal for your mountain vacation. Located within a gated community of Rumbling Bald Resort, this rental at Lake Lure has many recreational activities for all ages. Perfect for couples, families, friends, wedding parties, or girlfriend's getaway. The kitchen/dining room area is an enjoyable gathering place. The enclosed rear large porch offers scenic views. It's a great place to read, play games, listen to your favorite music on the sound system, or just relax and take in the view. Because of the elevation the feel is that of being in a tree house. Enjoy watching the 42 inch TV. Savor a BBQ grilled meal on the picnic tables just thirty steps from the front door. Other picnic areas with a dock and view of Bald Mt Lake are close by, the most being five minute walk away.

WiFi with ROKU is available in the condo. You can see the 3rd hole of the Rumbling Bald golf course (from upstairs balcony) and Bald Mountain from the front of the condo while enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. The living room, kitchen, back porch/deck and a 1/2 bath are on the main level. Two bedrooms with two queen size beds, each with a private bath, and flat screen TV's, are upstairs. Take a moment to breathe in the fresh air on either of the bedroom balconies. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for meal preparation, serving dishes, plates & utensils.

A wide range of Rumbling Bald amenities are yours to enjoy--everything you'd expect at a resort including a magnificent lake with a long white sandy beach, tiki bar, choice of summer time pools, a 'Lazy River', tennis/pickleball, basketball, volleyball, miniature golf, large board games and fun activities for every age, also two championship 18 hole golf courses. There are choices of boat rentals and scenic cruises available at the Boat House on the beach. Weekly beach bonfires are held at the waterfront during summer months. The Wellness center is equipped with an indoor pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna, and fitness center with exercise equipment, yoga room which offers classes. A perfect complement to your stay is the full service spa and salon offering facials, body treatments, massage, hair cutting/styling, and manicure. Consult Rumblingbald website for other special events, more photos and detailed information about the resort.

Outdoor activities include fishing, boating, hiking/biking trails near the condo. Enjoy a scenic walk along the boardwalk by the marina next to the white sandy beach. There are scenic lunch, dinner and lake boat tours available-easy to reserve with no payment until just prior to leaving. Zip lining and horseback riding are within 10 min drive. The views walking around the resort are nicely landscaped with paths for enjoyable walking. There is a very nice 18 hole miniature golf course outside the Wellness Center. If you feel adventurous it's less than an hour to local attractions including the Carl Sandburg Estate, Asheville (home of the Biltmore Estate, largest privately owned home in the US), Chimney Rock, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Or visit nearby historic towns with quaint main streets, restaurants and shops (we like Black Mt best).

Don't feel like cooking? No problem. Within the gated community there is a new sports bar restaurant with a spectacular view of Lake Lure (see photo) less than a mile from your doorstep.

About Alan and Sallie

Sallie is an RN. Alan is a retired Psychologist. We live in western Massachusetts most of the time but have enjoyed escaping to the condo especially during the winter months. Alan is an avid golfer. Sallie enjoys hiking, gardening, knitting, and volunteering at a local hospice.

Why Alan and Sallie chose Asheville Area

We have loved Western North Carolina for years. This area is convenient, yet in an area where you can enjoy the ambience of resort living in a mountain environment.

What makes this villa unique

The condo is an end unit in a quiet with much greenery area of the resort. The best features are the views and privacy of the enclosed rear porch and the large, spacious kitchen for cooking and entertaining.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the middle of July and had an absolute blast! The condo is just perfect, and has everything you'll need for your stay (linens, kitchen equipment, washer/dryer, television in every bedroom and kitchen, outdoor grill just outside of the front door). The pool was hardly occupied until Friday afternoon, and the beach seemed practically deserted until then, too! It was a lovely, quiet resort with so much to do. The hosts take wonderful care of their place. We will be returning very soon!

Pro tip: grocery shop before you get there. There is an Ingles grocery close by, but the drive is a little twisty-turny :)

Loved Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this great condo. Everything to fill the day with relaxation and activities is available in the resort. The food quality was a real surprise too. The condo had everything we needed and was a great retreat from our days on the lake and surrounding activities. Loved the large kitchen and back screened in porch. We saw lots of wildlife diring our stay which was fun for the kids.

Comfortable condo by lovely Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

My best friend, seven-year-old son and I stayed for three nights at Sallie and Alan's condo and had a great time. Sallie was very communicative and a pleasure to work with. We swam in the lake and the pool (which has a fun 'lazy river'), rented kayaks, took a boat trip around the lake (which includes the sites where 'Dirty Dancing' was filmed - you can rent the movie from the wellness center and watch it before you go!), ate a very nice dinner at the Lakeview restaurant and enormous, delicious ice-creams from the beachside cabana, and played mini-golf and other games. Having stopped at the nearby Ingles for supplies on the way to the condo, we didn't leave the resort the whole time! One thing we really liked about the Rumbling Bald resort is that all the facilities are close together, so you can park up in one place and walk between them. We also had access to them for the whole of the days we arrived and left, which was a bonus. The resort wasn't crowded during our stay.

The condo itself was pleasant, with comfortable beds and effective A/C, which was important as it was HOT. Just a five-minute drive to the resort facilities. Neither the condo nor the resort are super-slick and modern, but that wasn't our priority. I was a little surprised to find that the screened porch had plexiglass windows, but it would have been too warm for us to sit out there without them anyway. The wifi was OK but cell reception quite poor for my network (Sprint).

Lake Lure is a special place - swimming in the fresh water, surrounded by mountains, is an experience not to be missed. We hope to be back! Thank you Sallie and Alan for sharing your condo with us!

Great Condo and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in Bald Mount Lake Lure Resort for 5 years now. We have rented several homes, but this was our first time renting a condo. We were very pleased with this unit. It was very cozy, enjoyed the back screened porch that overlooked the lake and nature. Very quiet location and easy access to amenities. My husband has a bad back and he said that the beds were comfortable, we enjoyed the kitchen area which had all the necessary appliances and use of the washer and dryer was nice. The bedrooms were large and my kids enjoyed having use of there own TV and access to there own deck. WIFI was only accessible in the downstairs. We will definitely keep this unit in mind for next year.

Great Condo Experience at Lake Lure!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Sallie and Alan's condo at Lake Lure for the first time this Fall and had an amazing experience. The condo was clean and perfectly located close to the lake, resort activities and dining. The views from the condo were spectacular. Sallie and Alan were a pleasure and very accessible, flexible and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure our family had a great stay. We plan to return in the future and highly recommend the properpty. Great memories!

Quiet, secluded getaway

  • 4 of 5

We went to Lake Lure for a weekend with my family, celebrating my wife birthday. We wanted something different from hotels and this was a perfect place for us. The condo was very beautiful with all the necessary things that one needs for a getaway. There was enough space for the kids to play around and more that enough tvs. My daughter enjoyed some movies form the dvd collection that was in the condo. The resort had enough activities for my family. When we ddnt want to cook, we just ordered from the club house. This was a great weekend!!!
