A postcard from the Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure, N.C., might start out something like this:

Hi y’all,

Having the time of my life.

See you soon.

If you are familiar with the Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey romantic movie “Dirty Dancing,” then you’ll get the obvious reference from the flick’s theme song and surely want to visit the resort where the movie’s stars hung out.

If not, then maybe it’s time to check out the picturesque resort located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains where scenes from the iconic 1987 movie were filmed.

Cinematic buffs might visit Rumbling Bald Resort for the nostalgia of enjoying a stay where Swayze, Grey and Jerry Orbach hung out while filming, but there are plenty of more reasons to plan a stay at the iconic western Carolina resort. It’s kind of a one-stop shop for all-things outdoors – from 36 holes of quality golf to hiking, biking, water sports to just plain old relaxing.

For any or all of those things and more, Rumbling Bald Resort is a perfect getaway. There are villas, home rentals and even home sales available to suit every visitor’s needs – be it a family reunion, buddies golf trip or seeking a permanent residence or vacation home. More
