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

This was actually our second time going to Willows. The condo's are very nice. We were a little disappointed this time, the restaurant that is attached to the Willow's went out of business in June. I wish they would have mentioned that when I made the reservation. These condo's truly look over Lake Pepin. There is a walking/biking path along... More

This was the second year we stayed at Willows on the River in Lake City, MN . 15 miles down the great river road is Stockholm Wi. This was 41st anniversary of the upper midwest largest art festival. Saturday night we ate at Nosh restaurant in Lake City. Excellent food and great choices of wine. The restaurant sits on the... More

The Willows on the River has become our favorite getaway location. The view is spectacular and the rental condos are terrific. Since we live in Minneapolis it only takes us about 50 minutes to start enjoying our time away from home. The floor to ceiling windows provide a beautiful view of Lake Pepin and the MIssissippi River. If you are... More

lovely place, but the people behind the front desk sadly were not at all helpful. We asked for a late check out on a very very quiet Sunday and were given the "what if everyone did that" and "my manager/owner doesn't allow me to do this". I left my pillow behind and called asking if they could ship it. This... More

Nancy N, Owner/Manager at Willows on the River, responded to this review

One of the things people always comment on is how friendly our staff is. We have survey cards in each suite and I don’t even recall a complaint regarding our front desk staff being unpleasant. We do our best to accommodate guests, we were able to let this person check in at 10:30 am, (check in time is 3 pm),... More

I have stayed at the Willows condo twice in the last two years. I might try to make it an annual tradition. It's such a beautiful drive between Lake City and Wabasha especially in Fall when the leaves are turning color with the bluffs and Lake Pepin. The service at the Willows has been very good and friendly and they... More

Well, all I can say is....WOW!!!!! When reading the reviews of this place....I want you to seriously look past the negative ones, and read the positive ones. Not quite sure why anyone that stayed at Willows on the River could not have a positive stay there. My husband and I have traveled through out the world, and this place is... More

This is a condo on Lake Pepin that is spacious, clean, well-equipped, and has something you rarely find in rental units---comfortable furniture and plenty of hooks in the bathroom! Once you're into the off season it's harder to find good restaurants open. But there's actually a pretty good one right here on the water, Sunsets. Oh yes, I forgot to... More

We stayed three nights for our 30th anniversary. I would recommend this condo to anyone. It is clean,very large and you cannot find this view for this price. Golf "The Jewel". That course is a hidden treasure.. Get a stay and play package and the golf is so reasonable. We are going back next year.
