All of our cabins are non-smoking.
There is nothing like an owner's touch. Because we own and personally manage all of our 25 cabins, we at Willow Winds assure the consistency of luxury, quality, excellence, cleanliness of a first class luxury resort. We provide the quality and service that cannot be matched by absentee owners who must rely on rental agencies. We improve our property with thousands of new plantings and additional cabin amenities every year. We have some surprise new amenities to greet you this year.
Our Willow Winds office is on site and our maintenance chief lives on site. Our full time resort maintenance staff is available to address any problems. Our courteous office staff is also available to assist guests with concierge services, including planning day trips and tours, making reservations, and using our office for printing and other business purposes.
We offer seclusion and privacy that cannot be found at duplexes that are advertised as Asheville cabins or in condos with thin walls. We are located in the city of Asheville and comply with the mandatory city ordinance which is the strictest vacation rental regulation in North Carolina (each vacation rental must be a separate building and located on a minimum of 30 acres with 50% open space). We are proud to exceed these standards with the only cabins in a year round woodland garden in North Carolina or anywhere else. We have filled our open spaces with 17 lighted fountains and millions of plantings of trees, shrubs, and bulbs.
Willow Winds charges no additional fees except for the sales and occupancy taxes required by law. There are no $85 or more cleaning fees and $30 "hot tub sanitation fees" as charged by many vacation rentals or the ever increasing "resort fees", internet charges, and other fees charged by hotels and other resorts.
We do not require our guests to sign one-sided rental agreements that take away your rights for a refund should we be unable to provide you with the quality accommodations you deserve. You should read your vacation rental agreement carefully and beware of rentals where the owner refuses to accept responsibility for cabins where appliances don't work and the place may be uninhabitable.
We stand behind our resort and immediately address any problems that may occur, thus making it unnecessary to buy trip insurance and accidental breakage insurance that typically would add as much as 10% to the cost of your vacation.
We only require a deposit of one half of your total rental in advance and the rest upon arrival rather than the full amount 31 days in advance.Check our Blog on this Subject
We are located adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and only five minutes from the Biltmore Estate and the shops and restaurants of Biltmore village. We are within 15 minutes of the entire downtown Asheville area as well as the new town of Biltmore Park Town Center. No other vacation rentals are located near more free, or almost free activities in the Asheville area. Whether it is the many attractions of Downtown Asheville or the wondrous Asheville outdoor activities of the surrounding mountain countryside, there are no other vacation rentals or resorts so conveniently located to this much budget entertainment.
Willow Winds has more onsite free amenities and activities for kids than other Asheville cabins and resorts. Many young people have the lifetime memory of catching their first fish in our stocked trout pond. Kids and adults can enjoy our free game porch, horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton, baggo, outdoor chess set, water wars, and other activities described here. Don't pay $15 for movies on demand. Check our extensive free video library of over 2,000 movies, which contains both old classics such as a great collection of Clint Eastwood movies and the latest new Academy Award winning movies. We receive all of the latest Oscar winners as they become available.
All vacation cabin rentals are equipped with free Wi-Fi internet that can accommodate an entire family's devices. We have good iPhone and iPad reception and have Altec Lansing iPod/iPhone sound docks that fill your cabin with the sound of your own music. All cabins are equipped with flat screen HDTV and numerous free cable channels.
We offer a number of amenities not found in the standard vacation rental, including plush bath robes and very plush towels. Every guest is treated to a delightful welcome basket of treats. We are one of the very few cabin rentals that offer real wood-burning fireplaces. We provide stacked firewood and fire starters for the wood-burning fireplaces in each of our cabins.
The Mountains-To- The Sea Trail is adjacent to our resort property, and other nearby great hiking trails make us a hiker's paradise.
Forget hotel restaurants and mini bars. We offer discounts to a number of gourmet Asheville restaurants operated by local owners within a few miles of our cabins. In addition, we are minutes from a number of good well-know national chain restaurants. For those who don't want to leave the comfort of their cabins, the Valet Gourmet offers prompt and reliable deliveries from many of our best Asheville restaurants. The more budget conscious can cook in the well-equipped kitchen in each cabin and even call ahead and have your favorite grocery items purchased and waiting for you when you check in.
