We found Willow winds while researching for our 2nd annual girl's trip ~ three sisters and our wonderful mother. We had a wonderful time at Beautiful Biltmore! It was nice to come back to "Mom's Manor" and relax. We loved the pond, fountains, and hot tub. After a day of walking it was a nice retreat.

Thanks for a most relaxing and memorable atmosphere to enjoy time with my sisters and mother. We Loved It!!

Well, you've done it again!! This was our second visit to Sophia's Saphire, and it certainly won't be our last. This house and this city have a magical way of letting you forget about the stresses back home and just relax, find yourself and remind you and your love exactly what is important in your lives. We had a fabulous time in the drum circle downtown Friday and dinner at Jerusalem Gardens. Saturday kicked off with breakfast at Tupelo Honey, then a 3 hour canoe trip down the French Broad through the Biltmore Estate. We highly recommend this as it was 3 peaceful hours of nothing but nature and love.

Saturday night we did the Brew's Cruise which was a fun way to learn about and drink local beer, but even a better way to make some fun friends for the night. Today, Corner Kitchen and bike rides! This place really is heaven!

Sophia's Sapphire is our favorite place to get away when we want to go "off the map" and just spend time together. We fall in love more and more every day because of our special getaways and it reminds each other that this is what's important in life.

Sophia, we'll see you again soon!!

One of our best vacations ever with the Willow Winds cabin being part of what made it that way for us!

Drove the Blue Ridge Parkway one day to Blowing Rock, a long drive but breathtaking views all the way.

Went to the Folk Art Center another day ~ lots of local art, jewelry, & crafts.

Went to Billy Grahams Training Center at the Cove & if you are a follower well worth seeing the beautiful grounds, chapel, & history of Grahams life.

Did Biltmore Estate another day ~ Incredible! A lot of $$, even with the discount here, but it really something to see!

Downtown Asheville is great ~ lots of music, shopping, interesting restaurants. Tupelo Honey was a favorite ~ we went twice. The French Broad Chocolate Lounge on Lexington was another for their signature hot & cold sipping chocolates and other exquisite desserts & truffles in a very laid back atmosphere.

Went to the stadium for a ballgame downtown. The Asheville Tourists play there regularly ~ Lots of Fun!

Went to UNC Asheville and wandered the lovely grounds and botanical gardens there ~ nice.

Hiked the beautiful Blue Ridge Trail (Mountains-to-Sea) right in back of Willow Winds ~ it is beautiful!

Went to Barley's ~ some great pizza, which is cheap, delicious, and can be had by the slice. Mo's BBQ, Luella's BBQ, 12 Bones Smokehouse ~ all very good!

The daily hot tub (and we really have never been hot tub people) was sooo relaxing! One of the best parts of our stay here.

We also loved the hammock out back, playing ping pong, air hockey, basketball, etc for free down at the office.

Pat & Mary could not be nicer! And everything in this cabin is exceptional ~ we want to live here!

Thank you, and we hopefully will be back ~ We've told our friends already!

This was our first visit here and we love it. We hiked the trail up the hill, went to Biltmore and saw downtown Asheville. The accommodations have been quiet, soothing and comfortable. Thanks!

We had originally planned to spend our honeymoon at one of the "fancy" hotels in the area. We saw WillowWinds online and when we got here we knew we'd made the right choice. A second home with a return visit in the future.

Also we enjoyed the "comforts of home" with very comfortable mattresses & bedding. Thank you! I also appreciated the diversity of the trees & plants growing here at Willow Winds. A very "enchanting" atmosphere has been established. Thank you!

Staying at Greg's Cabin at Willow Winds proved to be a great choice. I loved having my green tea in the morning on the outdoor balcony looking out at the Tulip trees and listening to the sounds of the fountains. The location was perfect: close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Downtown Asheville, and the Airport. There is so much to do here in this beautiful and majestic landscape!

I'm sitting on my favorite rocking chair on the large covered porch ~ looking down the grass hill, past the herb garden to the lovely fish and fountain pond, surrounded by thick trees of every description including two of my favorite ~ Weeping Willows.

The grill is heating; waiting for the lamb chops I bought at the Farmers Market this morning.

I enter the living room with the high ceiling, stone fireplace, leather couches and rocking chairs; which many years ago was a one room cabin.

Sunlight filters through one of the long glass sliding doors which through the other I see my hammock waiting for me.

I'm home again; "Pat's Place" is mine.

We spent our honeymoon here; this place has made for the best honeymoon ever!

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The grounds here are gorgeous! Biltmore is a must to see, Chocolate Fetish truffles were amazing...worth the money. Also Luella's BBQ was amazing ~ get the sweet potato appetizer...yummy!

We will be back!
