This is our 8th visit to Willow Winds!! We obviously love it here.  We have done lining, White water rafting, Hiking, Biking, and eating at great restaurants.  Make sure you spend time in the cabin.  It's so easy to go, go, go.  However, its so peaceful here and everyone should make time for that.

Peaceful fountains and hammocks, Peaceful rocking chair porch time, Peaceful romantic nights with the sparkle of the fireplace.  Good Times!!!

Nice Place.  Really enjoyed our stay!!  Saw three deer one day and two the next.  Tried Tupelo Honey Cafe -- Yum.  Overall just a very nice enjoyable fall trip.

JENNA AND RICK (Naples Florida)

Our 2nd stay at Cora's Pine.  Back for another week of laid-back pure joy!  We love cooking our food in this cabin and enjoy the view of massive trees, scenic pond and sunset lighting from our balcony.  Willow Winds makes sure our stay is special by providing a clean place to stay, easy connection to internet, and a multitute of things to do around the premises.

As Naples, Fl is a beach paradise, Willow Winds is a Mountain Paradise.  We are lucy to have found this place and will continue to come back.

This was our 5th visit to Willow Winds.  We normally stay at Andrew's Attic.  However, due to changing work schedules, we had to move our October reservation up a month, and Larry's Lodge was the only cabin available.  We found Larry's to be just as nice as Andrew's.  We will have a tough decision between the two cabins for our next visit....Thanks to the staff at Willow Winds for making this such a great place to visit.  John and Christine,

We wanted a quiet, relaxing getaway in the woods with maybe a trickling stream nearby. Saw the ad for this place in N.C. Travel Guide. We called at the last minute... and fortunately there were two cabins to choose from. We picked a Winner! So pleased just like home without the hassles of home.

After walking around the property, it looks like Lady Luck was looking out for us. Loved sitting out on the porch; wonderful breeze; fountain nearby (to replace the stream). Everything's so comfy, clean

We came back to Asheville to celebrate our 10th anniversary. The first time we had a week, just the two of us. But this time Hurricane Irene had other plans for us.

Our time here at Willow Winds was wonderful and I agree with all other guests' comments about the staff ~ very pleasant & helpful.

We went to the Biltmore Monday & Tuesday ~ first day the house, second day the winery...... Definitely worth the two day pass.

On Wednesday we went up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mt. Mitchell ~ Highly recommend this journey.

Thursday ~ our anniversary ~ we came to the decision that we would have to leave a day early to head back to Virginia Beach to prepare for the hurricane bummer!

Good news is ~ generators are readily available here and we are returning with two!


The Hot Tub, the Scenery, & The Privacy.....

All & all we had a wonderful week and we have discovered we enjoy taking off for the week with just the two of us!

We came here for a short getaway from our home & faily in Michigan and we've had a wonderful time.  The Willow Winds property proved to be all that it had promised and then some.  We hope to return with our kids sometime.  Asheville was a lot of fun too -- very different from what we're used to.  Our favorite eatery was Jack of the Wood's, We tried the Scotch eggs, some local brew's and the Sheppard's pie...all accompanied by some very talented bluegrass musicians.

Thanks Willow Winds for a great place to stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Willow Winds. And as promised, the weather was beautiful. As peaceful and beautiful as Willow Winds is in March, we can only imagine the beauty of the place with the flowers in bloom and leaves on the trees.

We will surely recommend this place to others coming to the Asheville area.

This has been one of the best experiences. We joined our friends Chris & Amy for the weekend and we have had a blast. The hot tub was fabulous. It started snowing.

Thank you for a fantastic visit! We were rained on and snowed on but we didn't care because we watched it from the hot tub. It was a wonderful getaway and we definitely hope to return.

We found this wonderful place looking online. When we saw it we knew this is where we wanted to come. Beautiful scenery, cozy cabin, & hot tub!

We have really enjoyed our stay. Cabin is one of the best we have stayed in. The goodies in the tin and fridge was a nice surprise for us. Everything is Welcoming!!

We will gladly tell our friends of our stay & visit here. We enjoyed waking up to snow dusting on the ground. It felt like Home. Thanks!

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely, well equipped comfortable cottage.

Wonderful to be so secluded and quiet ~ yet so close to shopping etc.

Such comfortable beds & pillows, a very important item indeed!

The grounds are lovely; even in early spring ~ love those fountains! Our thanks to Pat & Linda for being so friendly & accommodating.

We spent 4 nights at Sophia's Sapphire. What a wonderful, well cared for place. Willow Winds is a great place for Rest & Relaxation, all of the amenities are well thought out. We would love a return visit!

Mollie & Grant (Charlotte, NC)

First Evening:

Dinner at Medesto's & Downtown Asheville. The lovely floating notes of the alto sax from the street corner and dining alfresco were the best of this experience.


The Biltmore House. A thought provoking glimpse of a magnificent and almost incomprehensible life style from 1900.


The Grove Park Inn. In approach right out of German fairy tale, a view of valley and distant mountains and a brunch that is an epicurean's delight.

* Take it all in ~ live in the moment and don't let it go by too fast before you realize just how lucky you are to be right here ~ Right Now.

To many more stays at Willow Winds!


Second trip to Willow Winds with the Love of my Life. Never fails to be the best place to reconnect and fall in love all over again. I will always cherish this place in my heart. Don't want to leave!

Carol & Bob

Carol & Bob had a wonderful time in Asheville and especially at Willow Winds. I highly recommend reading the coffee table book in your cabin before starting to see the area. We enjoyed Biltmore, particularly the Gardens and Winery. The Farmers Market on Saturday. Breakfast at Corner Kitchen and dinners at Fiore's, The Market Place, & Frankie Bones.

The property and natural landscape at Willow Winds is sooo relaxing & the cottage is well appointed and comfortable. Walking the areas hills was a little difficult for us Florida flatlanders, but enjoyable.
