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

Its silly how some people make their own decision to stay at places know ALL the good and bad but still pick the place then do nothing but talk bad about it. 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

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
