Stayed at the willows for a week and a half while in between rental apartments. I asked the management if they had a weekly rate, or any kind of discount i could get for staying with them for the amount of time i was. They were kind enough to drop the rate substantially. As well as consistently going out of... More

Spent much of my time on the balcony taking photos. With the fall colors and beautiful sunrises, as well as the lake view, this was the place to be. Our third-floor condo was larger than expected due to a mix-up in the office - a nice surprise! The shoulder season rate was very reasonable - would have loved to stay... More

We had a girls' getaway and the 2-bedroom condo was perfect for us. Full kitchen, fireplace, 2 bathrooms, indoor pool and hot tub --- all wonderful. We enjoyed the sunrise over Lake Pepin from our 3rd floor room. There is a walking path along the lake, which was very enjoyable as well. We visited during the off season, during the... More

Very nice and roomy condo. We stayed in a 1 bedroom on the second floor for one night at an off season rate of about $125. When sitting in the living room, it looks like you are right on Pepin Lake. You are about 50 feet from the lake. The condo was very clean with a full kitchen, a gas... More

My usual hotel was booked for the weekend, so I called The Willows. I thought the rate would be out of my budget, as these are beautiful 1-bdrm (they have 2-brms, too!) condos right on Lake Pepin. However, after contacting the Willows & speaking with an extremely friendly representative, I found the rates to be competitive with area hotels. Because... More

There were five of us so the two bed plus loft with two baths was perfect. Great outlook of the lake and the mighty Mississippi. The pool and spa were great fun and quite warm. The suite is fully stocked to eat meals in if you so choose plus has a w/d. Stayed here a few years back and will... More

Lake Pepin is a River Lake, the widest spot on the Mississippi River. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you will return. As for the Restaurant, the Condo Company is a separate business and we have no control over it's abrupt going out of business, or when someone will purchase the Restaurant. We too hope to get...

Excellent place on Lake Pepin with full front view of lake-sans fireplace. Fully furnished condos with indoor hot tub and pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. The Pearl of the Lake tour boat docked right by condos. A boat trip will worth doing for scenery and commentary.

We decided to do a weekend get away and the Willows on the River had a 1 bedroom available. Being an owner of RCI condos, we were prepared for the same old, same ole. We were pleasantly surprised by the warm reception of all the front desk staff. Our unit (208) was very well equipped and quite well maintained. There... More
