“Well done. No worries at Willow Winds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This was as easy and worry free vacation rental I have ever had. No renter-hating contract that makes you nervous to walk in the door. Everything is available from DVD library to water balloons. Non intrusive but available staff. Beautiful grounds. We were with 6 families and all of the houses were positioned to have privacy. Most of the decks are covered with fans and lights. Mikes Place was not--which meant we could no enjoy the view in the rain. Would not hesitate to go back.

This is a great location! Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and close to the Great Smoky Mountains. We stayed here two nights in June and wished we had more time! The cabins are great, clean and well maintained. The grounds were great for couples or families. My kids loved the giant chess game and the movie library. I would definitely recommend this spot.

Room Tip: We stayed in Donna's Diamond cabin and loved the location, real quiet.

We stayed in Jackie's Gem. The property is very quiet, and it is convenient for a family or group to have kitchen facilities. Some of the bedrooms are quite small (made more so by the large furniture). The hot tub was a treat to have, and the fitness room was convenient. The staff was very helpful providing maps and answering our many questions. Our one complaint is that the buildings were not maintained as well as they could have been. The rugs were threadbare in areas, there were luggage scuffs on the walls and the dishes were chipped. These were small things that did not ruin our vacation by any means, but with so much staff driving around tenting to the lovely plantings it would seem that someone could care for the insides of the cabins too.

Room Tip: The bedrooms in the round cabins may be a bit smaller. Ask about the sq ft of rooms when booking.

We stayed a week in Chris's Cabin, a rustic log structure of unknown vintage. If cattywampus walls and a steel cable holding everything up don't bother you, you will enjoy your stay in Chris's Cabin.

The deck overlooks the pond, and we spent a good deal of time out there reading or just enjoying the surroundings, even when it was raining very hard. If you choose to use the exercise room, it is a very short walk, shorter than the locker room to the weight room at our gym back home.

Our only criticism, and a minor one at that, is that the cabin is cooled by a window style air conditioner at one end of the cabin while the bedroom is at the other end. We had the a/c on maybe three days out of seven. It was toward the end of our visit we finally noticed the small fan tucked away in the bottom of the closet.

For our purposes, exploring Asheville, the location was perfect. It is hard to believe a place so off the beaten track is still so close to everything we wanted to see.

We loved Jen's Jewel! What a marvelous cabin, what a marvelous place! We spent three nights here in late May, and wish we could have stayed longer! At Asheville Cabins, you are in the woods, secluded from all of the other cabins on the property, and the rest of the world, but out of the gate and down the hill; you are literally within the the city limits of Asheville! It is less than 5 minutes from the Biltmore, and just a wee bit longer to downtown, but, you will not want to leave the property any more than necessary. The cabin is well appointed and outfitted with anything you might need, or think you might need - from a private hot tub, to dryer sheets! We had a wee problem with the air conditioning after hours one evening, but Mike, of the maintenance department, was right on top of things, and within an hour everything was fixed and fully operational - so we can vouch for that department too. Enjoy your stay at Willow Winds - you'll be back - I know for sure that we will!

"Asheville Cabins of Willow Winds" provided our family an excellent introduction the hospitality and relaxing feel of Asheville, North Carolina. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived to check out. They provided us with very helpful maps of the area and brochures for area attractions. The cabins are conveniently located near grocery stores, downtown Asheville, and the incredible Biltmore Estate. "Greg's Get-Away' is a comfortable and tastefully decorated cabin. We loved the beds and the hot tub! It was a pleasure to wake up listening to birds singing and taking in the fresh mountain air. I was so enchanted, I took many cards from their office and told friends to check them out. Thank you so much for a very lovely respite, Asheville Cabins of Willow Winds!!

When you first turn off the road the get to the cabins.......you travel through a housing addition....if you're like us, you might feel a little concerned at this point......but don't worry!! around the bend is the Office and arrival into Willow Winds! The Ladies in the office were Super nice and helpful! Check in was a breeze and check out even easier!! Initially we felt the cabins were closer to each other than expected.......but after settling in and relaxing on the deck, we realized that you can't really see or hear your neighbors.......so privacy is not an issue. Our cabin was very clean.....we had a nice supply of firewood on the porch and all appliances and hot tub were in good working condition. We loved being able to walk on the "Mountains to Sea Trail" right off the property! Loved the Welcome Basket and the PenLight inside the check-in packet!! A really wonderful stay~ would definitely return!

Room Tip: If you rent a 2 bdrm cabin - pull down the lane and take bags in through the lowest level as bedroom...
