I went to the Willow Valley Resort for a weekend retreat. I stayed in a one bedroom 1 bath condo that overlooked the golf course. I checked in late Friday night. I didn't really get the usual "this is where we meet for what the resort has to offer" welcome. It was more, here's a map and a key. I... More

We exchanged through RCI. The cabins were large. The indoor pool and hot tub were nice. Our kids loved them. The lobby has games and puzzles and books to borrow. We played Oceanopoly, and I read one of their books. It was nice having a porch. There was a washer and dryer in the cabin, which was nice for drying... More

The "Chalet" units have no AC. We were there even in May and we were extremely uncomfortable for a few night when the temp was in the high 70's and low 80's. In our upstairs unit the sun baked us even when the temp outside was more pleasant. The carpet had burns near the fireplace; very ugly. The furniture was... More

This was an inexpensive RCI vacation. Our condo overlooked the golf coarse. There are also cabins UP in the woods. The kitchen was well-equipped and we cooked our meals-in. Nice fireplace, that we used ((firewood for sale at the office, or 10 minutes away in Boone. Check in was efficient and the office people were able to answer all our... More

We booked this through RCI and after reviewing on Trip Advisor, I was really quite nervous to tell you the truth. However, we were committed and we made the trip. The purpose was to ski and enjoy the activities around the Boone, NC area. I think our unit could be summed up this way: like camping with heat, color TV... More

We stayed in one of the timeshare condos that we booked through RCI. We arrived on November 1 in the midst of the first snow of the season. The roads were plowed and we had no trouble getting our car up the hill to our unit. We were on the first floor, but we still had around 10 wooden steps... More

Willow valley is a great place to stay very beautiful it may not be completely up to date but thats what makes it different from the others. Really... More

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
