This is a total lifestyle community with extensive amenities. It's a place where everyone in the family will find something to do as they enjoy the beauty of the surrounding mountains and the lake.
The golf course scene in the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed at the Resort’s Bald Mountain golf course. Apple Valley is the second Resort golf course, a Dan Maples designed championship course.
The Wellness Center has well-equipped gym and an exercise room for Yoga and Pilates. There are two outdoor and one indoor pool, mini-golf for the youngest golfers, walking trails, tennis, and a 125 foot sand beach and marina on the lake.
There is a marina for owners, a daily boat launch, and boats of various sizes available to rent. Water skiing is allowed and fishing is productive. Nearby riding stables expand options to include a tour on horseback and you can easily plan day trips to other Western NC destinations. In short, there is something for everyone in the family to do as they enjoy the lake and the spectacular mountain views of the Gorge.
Three onsite restaurants are open to the public and offer casual to formal dining. A dinner cruise is known both for excellence of dining and the spectacular sunset views enjoyed by diners
All amenities are in place and both owned and managed by the RB Property Owners Association. Owners tend to be retirees or second home owners although the Fall 2010 opening of a neighborhood school, the Lake Lure Classical Academy – a free NC K-8 Charter School- will certainly attract more families with young children.
RB Resort is also a popular destination for vacationing families, golfing parties, weddings, and reunions. The POA manages its own property rental division and many owners opt to mix pleasure with investment and offer their mountain homes for short term vacation rental.
An Architectural Review Committee oversees that new construction is within POA guidelines. Homes vary widely in style but exterior colors must be chosen from a palette of colors in tune with an organic blend into the environment look. There is a strong community commitment to keeping the natural beauty intact and the lake sparkling clean.
Rumling Bald Resort is a great family community where you can relax in a casual, informal atmosphere amid the beauty of a lake surrounded by mountains. For vacation home buyers, it offers something for everyone in the family to do and enjoy in a beautiful setting as well as easy property management if investment income is also a goal. Retirees can opt for homes in the midst of activity or quiet spaces tucked into the woods. Some live here year-round and others are part-timers: “snowbirds” enjoy the mild winters and Floridians come to escape their summers. There is an active social life with clubs offering a choice of activities.
