We booked Willow Winds strictly based on the reviews here and we were not dissappointed! It's pretty much just like everyone says. We stayed in Tom's Trophy and it was like a second home. Our vacation was to sight see but also to allow the grandparents some quality time with our 7mos old. Four adults and one baby fit in the cabin with room to spare! We were able to lounge around without feeling cramped and getting in each others way.
I was suprised with how much came with the cabin. I thought for sure we'd need dish soap, detergent, etc. Nope! The cabin was so well stocked from dishwasher detergent to coffee filters. Even little soaps and shampoos in the bathrooms. Really, all you need to provide is food and drinks!
The amenities were fantastic. We never even got to use most of them (like the hot tub) but my favorite part was the fireplace. If you go in the winter be sure to enjoy the fireplace. There's more fire wood than you could ever use and starters and matches are provided. It got very cold while we were there and every night we enjoyed sitting around the fireplace with a glass of wine and deck of cards.
The grounds are beautiful, don't let the drive to the place fool you (you drive through a residential area), this is back to nature living. We hiked the trails just steps from our door. The cabins, altough close together, feel completely secluded and ours had an incredible view off the deck.
We did leave the cabin from time to time to enjoy Asheville and the staff were so helpful. Make sure to stop by the office before you visit any attractions as they always had some type of coupon or discount available.
We may consider making this an anual family event, if so, we won't stay anywhere else!
