My condo is in the Rumbling Bald resort. You can go to the Rumbling (Website hidden by Airbnb) web site to view all resort amenities. The resort is on the back side of Chimney Rock and within a
1/2 hour drive to Hendersonville or Asheville. Ingles grocery store is ten minutes away, but there are 3 restaurants on the property if you don't feel like cooking...
It is a resort so most people are on vacation like you are, but there are some people who are lucky enough to live at the resort year round.
You can walk or drive anywhere on the resort property.
