This was a last minute trip so we had little to choose from in way of exchanges in the area, but this seemed like an older, but okay place to stay with a good location of the places we wanted to visit. The only nice thing I can say is that the place was clean and had a good location.... More

We recently rented cabin 11 from a timeshare owner. This was by far the best vacation we have ever taken. The cabin was so cozy and very clean. The property owners were very pleasant and easy to get along with. The driving distance to area attractions was minimal and the sight seeing so beautiful. We even saw deer frolicking in... More

My comments relate to the 2 units we had in the area around the indoor pool. I cannot speak for the cabins up in the hillside which might be quite different and nicer. Neither of our units had a king bed despite room for them and the mattresses were horrible and pillows were not much better. Bring your own! Only... More

My husband and I stayed our anniversary week. We rented a 1 Bedroom Chalet (quadplex cabin). The Chalets overlook the 9 hole golf course. We were very happy with our room. There was a kitchenette, living room and dining area, 1 full bath and a bedroom. The sofa has a pull out bed. The kitchenette is stocked with dishes for... More

My wife and I booked a stay at Willow Valley for an anniversary (our 43rd) weekend. After checking out the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a little concerned, but my concerns were unfounded. The resort is elderly, and some of the "shine" has worn off. But the place was clean, the kitchen well-stocked (except for a measuring cup!) and the... More

Stayed here a few year ago with a friend of mine and also last year with my wife. Have nothing bad to say about Willow Valley. It's not a 5 star resort but it is peaceful and relaxing. Nice views of the surrounding mountains nestled a little ways off the main road. Our condo did not have air conditioning but... More

We rented a cabin at Willow Valley Resort for a week for a family get away. It was very nice and clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the cookware, plates, etc we needed, there was a washer/dryer in the unit, a fireplace, and a nice seat on the porch. When we went, it was in between snow storms and... More

We arrived in the dark for a late check in over the December-January holidays. The cabin was adequate, fireplace but a small bundle of wood and kindling ran $6.50. Nice bedroom, really comfortable. Loved that there was a washer and dryer and all kitchen tools needed. Very pretty up a super steep winding road and NOT on the main highway... More

Nice little place near Boone NC. Lots of different activities to do in the area. 1 BR was nice and clean. A bit dated, but fine for my needs and had a fireplace that could be used in cold weather. Staff was very friendly and helpful. 9 hole golf course was nice and a little challenging with hills would recommend... More

This resort was just OK. It was pretty clean, but it was definitely older. We are glad that we brought fans, which helped with not having air conditioning. The one downside was that I was very uncomfortable in the bed and experienced an awful itchy feeling. The management did replace our sheets, but that didn't seem to help much. We... More
