About the property

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)


Lagniappe-“a little something extra”. That’s what Lagniappe Lodge is all about. Sitting within view of the top of Rumbling Bald, you can forget the hustle and bustle you’ve left behind while you enjoy the beauty and quiet of the forest around you.

The lodge is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath cabin in the Rumbling Bald Resort. We have 3200 sq. ft. of living space on two floors and a loft game room with a billiard table and game table. In addition there are 1200 sq. ft. of wrap-around deck covered on three sides. A lower level patio adds another 500 sq. ft of outdoor living area. A parking pad beside the lodge provides ample space for four vehicles plus plenty of parking space in the driveway. Being behind the main gate in Rumbling Bald Resort means you can easily enjoy all the amenities of the resort-swimming pools, fitness room, basketball court, tennis courts, spa, 2 golf courses, the beach and boating on the lake.

For entertainment at the cabin, play a game of pool on the table in the loft area, or gather the family around the game table with one of the board games. Enjoy watching a movie on one of the new HD TVs equipped with either blu-ray or DVD players. Or select a book from the bookshelf and lounge on the wraparound deck.

When you’re hungry, there’s a huge fully equipped kitchen with professional grade appliances. If you’re in the mood to grill, fire up the gas grill on the deck. Seating everyone for a meal is no problem with plenty of seats around the unique 12 foot granite counter. If you are not in the mood to cook, then choose one of the two on-site restaurants where you can dine.

As dusk approaches, be on the lookout for the deer who come out to feed. At night you can stargaze to your heart’s content as the stars are brighter in the dark skies. During summer evenings watch for the twinkling of fireflies. On crisp evenings light a fire in the fireplace and cozy up. After such a busy day, you will have no trouble falling asleep surrounded by the deep quiet of the woods.

If you want to travel about the area, places you might like to visit are:

• Biltmore House in Asheville

• Asheville

• Chimney Rock State Park

• Hiking on the Donald Ross Nature Trails

• Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site

• Blue Ridge Parkway

About Al Maenche

We are retired educators living in south Florida. We were drawn to the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina where the geography and climate are so different than southern Florida. We were attracted to Rumbling Bald Resort because of its family-friendly amenities.

Al Maenche purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Al Maenche chose Lake Lure

We fell in love with this home after a visit last fall when our grandchildren delighted in running around the deck that encircles the house and our daughter-in-law deemed it her 'dream home'. We knew then that we could create many more memories here. And we decided that our guests could too.

What makes this lodge unique

We knew it was a special place when we awoke to the first morning light streaming through the large windows in the master bedroom. Standing in our yard listening to the soft breeze blowing through the trees confirmed our decision to buy this home.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This house was clean and comfortable and beautiful inside. We were looking for a place with a mountain feel, and this definitely had it with the wood interior and lots of windows looking out into the woods. It had everything we needed for a weekend away. The resort it is located in has lots to do as well. The only negative that I would have is that if you have the max people of 8, the bathroom situation is a little tight with 6 people sharing the downstairs bathroom. Overall, though it was a great place to get away for a relaxing weekend.

Owner's Response: On the one hand we are pleased that this guest thought Lagniappe Lodge was a "Beautiful place to stay". On the other hand we are puzzled that this guest thought the "bathroom situation" was a "little tight". These guests could have easily used the other one and a half baths available to "loosen" the situation but, apparently, chose not to. Al & Darleen Maenche Owners of Lagniappe Lodge

Amazing Lodge at Amazing Resort

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into Lagniappe Lodge we felt like we were at home. The pictures don't do the home justice. It's big, it's elegant, it's warm, it's comfortable, it's a great place to stay and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Our family of 5 had a great time at the Lodge and taking advantage of all the Rumbling Bald Resort has to offer. Albert, the homeowner, is very responsive to questions and very willing to give recommendations in the area. If you want a great house to stay - look no further. And I almost forgot, the hot tub is one of the nicest - if not the nicest - one I've ever been in.

Wonderful spacious cabin with all the perks!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Lagniappe Cabin as family vacation spot. It definitely did not disappoint. The cabin was very spacious. The well stocked kitchen was a pleasant surprise! Lake Lure was beautiful and the resort was very peaceful. With all the resort amenities and sights to see, we were well occupied. We did not want to leave! We will be talking about this vacation for many years to come!

Excellent home for vacation with a large family

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 member family stayed here and never felt crowded. The house is spacious, and absolutely beautiful. We cooked full dinners in the state of the art kitchen . The pool table was the highlight of the stay for my kids. This is the second time we have stayed in this home and it has been a wonderful experience both times. I highly recommend this home!!

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful lodge for our annual family get together. We loved the fully supplied, up to date kitchen with ample seating for all. The first night we ate at the picnic table on the wrap around deck while the 3 toddlers raced their riding toys around the deck. The older kids enjoyed the game room. Five minute drive down the nicely paved roads took us to the resort where we swam in the lake with our big blow up circular raft, road the lazy river at the pool and played the 18 hole miniature golf.

Family Vacation with kids of all ages

  • 5 of 5

What a great home in a beautiful resort. Instead of going to the beach this year...our families came here. To my wonderful surprise we all had more fun here than at the beach. The resort is awesome, and this home is perfect . Beautiful , spacious , new hot tub outside , pool table , games, and a wrap around porch to die for. Can't wait to go back!

Lagniappe Lodge is in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina within an hour's drive of Asheville where the splendid Biltmore Estate is located. Also, be sure to take a tourboat ride on Lake Lure and visit nearby Chimney Rock park where you can hike, picnic and enjoy an aerial view of the area. Another hours drive away is Flat Rock where the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic site and the famed Flat Rock Playhouse are located.
