What a great cabin! We have been to Asheville many times but have always stayed in hotels. So glad we found Willow Winds on the internet! Loved having supplies on hand and finding the cabin inviting and clean! Very comfortable bed! On our next trip to Asheville Willow Winds will be our home away from home!

The Porch Sitting Gang (North Augusta, GA)

From the first moment we stepped into Cora’s Pine it has been nothing but delightful. Our girls weekend has been full of laughter & porch sitting. We were surprised to se a blue heron on the property. As we explored the Willow Winds property we came across many beautiful fountains tucked here & there. Dinner at Corner Kitchen was awesome! Trust the staff’s recommendations. Especially the white chocolate bread pudding. Needless to say this is the first of many stays with the Wonderful Willow Winds cabins! Thanks so much!

Vacation is when you have nothing to do and all day to do it.

Another year – another week- So many pleasures did we seek.

After enjoying a week of epicurean feasts all of our jeans plead for release ~ And the Food!!!

Luella’s BBQ ~ for exceptional Bar-B-Que!

Red Stag at Bohemian Hotel ~ for ambiance and food!

Pisgah Inn ~ Mountain views, rustic setting, and country cooking.

Bavarian ~ good food, good beer , good German atmosphere.

Chestnut ~ the new place in town at 48 Biltmore ~ it’s a Keeper!!!

The Moose Café ~ at the Farmers Market for home cooking that can’t be beat.

Games and DVD’s galore ~ Peggy and Jane exercising on the floor!

A roaring fire ~ crackling and bright with laughter and reminiscing every night. The hot tub helped each ache and pain. We almost felt like kids again!

The splendor and beauty of this special place ~ brings warmth to the heart and a smile to our face.

To Hell with the Mayans and their prediction of December twenty-one, We’re coming back again and again for much more fun!

We saw bears. Real, live, wild bears. So Exciting! We don’t get those sort of animals in South London!

Thank you!

We leave stress behind ~ relaxation we hold dear.

But something is very different this year ~

We usually all sit together reading good books ~

But this year everyone looked down at phones & nooks.

On Friday we drove to see Davis and Katy’s new Home.

Then high-tailed it over for lunch at 12 Bones.

Then we danced with the statues at the Arts & Crafts show,

John spied a wood vase and just couldn’t say no.

We’ve been dying for apples since we arrived,

So over to Hendersonville we decided to drive.

Visiting Granddad’s this year was quite a shock,

For now it has turned into a big commercial shop.

As usual we ate lunch at Mike’s on Main

Unfortunately the food just wasn’t the same

Next year we’ll be looking for someplace new

Where the food doesn’t taste like an old leather shoe.

Then we looked down Main St. and saw a big mob

We thought surely a politician was drawing the crowd,

We learned they were filming a reality show about getting a date,

We’re sure glad we already have our magnificent mates!

Then off to Dupont Forest we drove

To see High Falls on a leisurely stroll

We saw some poor doggies limping on rock

And got the idea to invent dog hiking socks!

Our week at Willow Winds is now over

Our laughing a feasting is done

But we look forward to October 2013

Next year promises even more fun!

What a hidden gem this place is! From all of the lovely touches ~ the welcome basket to the fully appointed cabin ~ we had everything we could need for a fantastic stay. We especially loved all of the details ~ pond, fountains, sitting areas, bocce, and outdoor chess set. No matter how you slice it Willow winds delivers in a big way and we will be sure to come again!

Wow, this was a wonderful time in the city of Asheville!! The cabins was very cozy, the entertainment was great, and the food was out of this world. We came with another couple that is like our family and we said we will make this our annual couples trip. We thank you so much for the hospitality!!

Thanks Willow Winds….See you next year!

Have returned for our 2nd stay at Willow Winds.

We can’t say enough about this beautiful place.

Cabins are elegant & very clean with every amenity ~ including wonderful bedding, views & hot tub!

Close to downtown & accessible to everything ~ yet removed from crowds. The ultimate peaceful sanctuary!

Hiking the trail everyday is awesome ~ what a great bonus!

Willow Winds is the best! Will be back again & again!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Willow Winds. This was our first getaway since having our first child 18 months ago and it was much needed. The cabin was perfect! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Monica (Atlanta, GA )

Came to Willow Winds to escape the hectic city life and celebrate the hubby’s 30th birthday. We had a wonderful stay and wish we could have stayed longer! Sophia’s Sapphire truly felt like home J I am proud to say that I have never started a fire ever in my life and I leave here a fire master! We will surely be staying here in the future. Hubby wants a rematch on the life sized chess board back behind the office building!

We hope this place never has an empty night and keeps the next tenants always warm by its fireside. Best Wishes!

The Willow Winds will pull us back this way again soon. I believe we have found a new tradition. If Asheville alone didn’t have enough to offer, this place surely puts it over the top. Cozy, calm and perfect for cuddling. We had surprisingly warm weather and loved every minute of it! Thanks!

Our visit is slowly coming to an end and we are dreading it. We had a wonderful time in Asheville. Thanks for the hospitality and the very home-like setting. We enjoyed shopping, cooking and fishing. Thank you for everything. We will Return. I even called Donna’s Diamond ~ Dora’s Diamond during our stay here . My two sons especially enjoyed the grounds. It’s nice to have activities for the children to do at close proximity to our cabin. Thank you. We hope everyone’s stay is as enjoyable as ours!

Derrick & Debra (Willow Springs, NC )

WOW! What a way to spend our 20th wedding anniversary. We spent our first in Gatlinburg but I think Donna’s Diamond and Willow Winds is the greatest. We’ve been back to the mountains a lot over the years and love it each time. So lucky we found this place! The privacy was great the peacefulness was second to none. Love the cabins and really hate to go home. We will be back in the fall. Thanks for a wonderful place.
