From the start, Willow Winds had an amazing level of service, including an email a week or so before our trip letting us know they were looking forward to seeing us. When we arrived, they had an entire wedding party that had checked out of all the cabins that day, but they had just finished cleaning our cabin and let us check in a bit early. We borrowed two DVDs free of charge (and they have a great selection of new releases and old favorites!) and they gave us a really nice tin of cookies and envelope with local information.
The cabin itself was clean and cozy and they provide firewood and fire starters....we made a fire both nights we were here. As others have mentioned, the best part of Willow Winds is that it is only a 10-minute drive to downtown Asheville, but our cabin, Kathy's Kabin, felt like it was much farther away and was very private. There is easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the leaves were just getting to their peak color, so the setting at Willow Winds was beautiful. Also the fact that we did not have any additional cleaning or hot tub cleaning fees in addition to all the amenities of the cabin made this an outstanding value!
However, one of the nicest touches was a hand-written note from Willow Winds shortly after we returned, thanking us for staying with them. It's details like these that make Willow Winds a truly unique place that has earned them their top ranking in Asheville!
