About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths


This log home is located within the Rumbling Bald Resort.

New decks 2016. Commercial grade outdoor propane fire pit controlled by light switch (out of reach of small children).

Not all homes are in Resort behind the gates and not all homes have INTERNET. This one does. Some homes have access to Resort but it is a pain to drive to the amenities. Make sure you know what you are renting and where it is located.

Dancing Falls Lodge - Overlooks SCENE LOCATION from DIRTY DANCING movie- 5 Star home. Located within the gates of the Rumbling Bald Resort. Note only houses located in the resort have access to the resort amenities (2 golf courses, 3 outdoor pools, 1 in-door pool, private beach and marina (boat rentals available), tennis courts, putt putt, fitness center, spa, etc). Situated on the golf course and overlooks the 16th hole (a scene location from the movie Dirty Dancing), a beautiful pond and waterfall. You can hear the soothing sounds of the waterfalls when you sit on the deck. Spectacular view of Bald Mountain from the covered front porch.


We have free WI-FI. Note some homes do not have access to the Internet. We also provide unlimited long distance (US only) as cell phone coverage is spotty in the mountains. We also have a cell phone booster.

NO MOTORCYCLES (Resort rule). You can park them at Resort parking lot though.

We offer a 6 seater, gas golf cart for $65 a day or $395 for the week. It must be rented for the duration of your stay. A separate invoice will be sent.

Resort amenities like use of swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), sauna and steam room are free for our guests.

We manage another home at It is conveniently located right around the corner on the same street from this property.

Check in is at 4 PM unless it is already cleaned and no one is in there the night before. Check out is 10 AM unless no one is coming in after you and it doesn't need to be cleaned that day. Watch the online calendar and check in with me a few days before your arrival. No early check ins or late checkouts are permitted in the summer as we have back to back rentals and we need all the time to clean it and do any maintenance. We want it to be perfect for your stay.

Overlooks waterfalls: Year Purchased: 2008 - Spectacular views, resort amenities and close to Biltmore and Chimney Rock. Lots of shopping in Hendersonville.

Owner Description/Comments: We moved from Brecksville, Ohio to Charlotte, NC in 2006. We looked for two years for the perfect vacation rental home. We were looking for a place that was close to Charlotte, had a beautiful view and was located in a resort so there would be lots of things to do. We love Lake Lure so much we have now made it our primary residence (a mile away from this cabin). This allows us to keep the cabin in top order at all times.

About Laurie Manderbach

We moved from Brecksville, Ohio to Charlotte, NC in 2006. We looked for two years for the perfect vacation rental home. We were looking for a place that was close to Charlotte, had a beautiful view and was located in a resort so there would be lots of things to do. We love this area so much we moved to the same Resort a mile away from this home. Since we live here we can make sure the home is well maintained. If our guests need anything, we are close by.

Laurie Manderbach purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Laurie Manderbach chose Lake Lure

We found the perfect place when we bought Dancing Falls Lodge as it overlooks one of the scene locations from the movie Dirty Dancing. Spectacular views and a full service resort. The lodge that has it all.

What makes this cabin unique

Scene location of Dirty Dancing. Golf cart available. View of waterfalls. Inside the gates of the Rumbling Bald Resort. On golf course. Views of Rumbling Bald Resort. Log Home. Owner Operated (we live a mile away) so the property is maintained and well kept.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home to all of us. We came here to rest, relax and take time to get to know eachother better and it was a success. We pray blessings over your home, your family and all the families that come into this home.

50th Birthday Blast

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 50th Birthday here with family.

We had a great time. House is exceptionally clean and spacious.

It had everything we needed.

We lost power one night and the owners graciously came by with flash lights, candles and WINE! They are great people!

Rent here, you will not be sorry!!

Awesome cabin, great location, spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent spring break at the cabin. The cabin was awesone. It was spacious and clean. Nicer than expected from the pictures. We enjoyed the game room, jacuzzi and firepit. We also used the indoor pool, mini golf and playground in the community. The hiking trail in the community was challenging and a great hike. I can’t say enough about what a great time we had, I would totally recommend this cabin. The owner Laurie was available and even spoke to me about the hiking trail while we were at the cabin. I hope to return again.

Great cabin you won't want to miss!!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a family or group gathering and are looking for a beautiful (and really clean and well kept!) place in the mountains to get away to, and accommodate a group, this is the place! It is well equipped to keep the family entertained even during inclement weather days! Well stocked with movies, pool table, foosball, plenty of place to sit and enjoy the sounds of the mountains from one of three comfortable decks! The outdoor gas fire pit and the the sounds of the waterfalls were among our families favorite spots to hang out! The DVD library had movies for everyone, the pool table was a great addition for family game time.

Kitchen is well equipped to handle large groups, making meals we never got in each's others way, and the double oven sure came in handy! There are sufficient amounts of dinnerware for the whole family. Plenty of outdoor seating for everyone, they even had a hammock! Although we did not use the hot tub, it was nice to know it was there in case anyone wanted to use it. And, it looked like it was big enough to fit more than four adults at a time.

They thought of just about everything we could have wanted or needed for our weekend away, and even some things we didn't think we needed!

We would enjoy staying here again!

Laurie the owner was wonderful to work with, good communication making sure we knew how everything worked, and, even labeled everything to make it easier to get set up and enjoy the cabin! And, she has a great sense of humor too!

If you are considering renting this cabin, don't hesitate, we have rented many different places through VRBO and this place is special!
