Day 1 - The Big Drive!
The first day of our trip – we are very excited but also tired! We got up at 2:15AM. Ok, we actually hit the alarm clock a couple times then got up. Made some strong coffee, overfed the cat, and then loaded up the car.
We planned the trip would take 10 hours at least after leaving Orlando. We …
Day 2 - The Biltmore Estate
Today we got up pretty early awoken by the birds! The serenity of Willow Winds is something else.
After donning our signature Willow Winds robes (no we cant keep em) - it was off to breakfast we went. Delicious cage-free eggs, maple pork sausage, black forest bacon, Greek yogurt, blue berries, juice, …
Day 3 - Biltmore Winery & The Parkway
It's Monday and we're really soaking up the cabin experience and dragging our feet. Another great breakfast much like the previous morning. After we have breakfast, we both agree that another hour sleep wouldn't hurt. Kathy hits the sack and I hit the road!
I have been dying to check out …
Day 4 - We spend the day in Downtown Asheville
This morning we awake to the sounds of the forest birds as usual. This is something that I don't think either of us will get tired of. Our friend, Mr. Cardinal (Yes, hes a bird) did not make his morning appearance to us unfortunately.
Breakfast while watching the suns rays peak …
Day 5 - Chimney Rock and Lake Lure
This morning we jumped right out of bed, loaded up our backpacks, and hit the road pretty fast. For some reason we packed a small cooler with a bunch of ice in it, deciding we'd buy some sandwhichs and keep them on ice later. We did not have breakfast at the cabin, therefore we opted to check out …

Historical Traveler Reviews Asheville Cabins of Willow Winds
Really wonderful place
We really enjoyed our week long stay at Willow Winds. The cabin (Irene's Oak) was immaculate upon arrival and well equipped for a comfortable stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions, recommendations etc. and the ground are beautiful. With all there is to do in Ashville, returning to Willow Winds at the end of the day was a welcome and quiet retreat.
Great place to stay
We just spent a week at willow winds and can echo all the previous reviews.
We were in Andrews Attic and it was delightful.
Only negative comments were that we had some difficulty with getting the dvd to work, (it was not hooked up properly) and the shower temperature control was broken. They did come to fix these things the next day. However, no one is available in the evening, as the office closes at 7 or 8 pm.
What a great place
We stayed last August at the Willow Winds for a family get together and rented two of the units for a week (Dogwood and Pat's Place). What a great place for a visit. The cabins were clean and very well maintained, the front office staff friendly and helpful, and the setting quiet and tranquil. Would recommend these units without reservations.
Best getaway I ever had..
My husband and I stayed at the Kathy's Cabin, Great time.. We set back and relaxed in the hot tub & fireplace and called Appalachian Spa Ventures [-] for our best couples massage ever.. They made our romantic getaway incredible. We had our couples hot stone massage with herbal wraps at our cabin. Candles, chocolates, aromatherapy . Sweet.. I would highly refer out to them. We look forward on coming back to Willow winds.
My girlfriend and I just returned from a wonderul weekend getaway in Asheville. We stayed at Willow Winds in Tom's Trophy and it was absolutely amazing. The staff was very helpful and the lady in the front office was great with directions and anything we needed. We enjoyed a couple's massage in our cabin via Appalachian Spa Ventures and it was so, so, relaxing!!! That afternoon we went horseback riding with Sandy Bottom Trail Rides and the scenery was breathtaking! We started our evening off with dinner at the Flying Frog Cafe and the food and the atmosphere was great! We ended our evening with a tour around the Biltmore Estate. The only regret is that it was only a weekend trip and the time went by too fast!!! Everything was excellent and I higly recommend Willow Winds for your next trip to Asheville!
Loved our stay at Willow Winds, we stayed in Andrew's Attic. WW is a perfect loction : close to everything, yet very secluded. Loved Andrew's Attic...perfect for the two of us. When we return to Asheville, we'd like to stay there again. It was pricy, but you get what you pay for. This was for a special occasion, and worth every $ spent. Some things to do in the area : Biltmore, of course...but also Fordbrook Stables is very close & reasonable for horseback riding --- Also had a couples massage in the cabin : highly recommend this as well : Appalachian Spa Ventures at ---
Loved Willow Winds!
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week at the Willow Winds, Asheville NC.
It was a sight unseen when we drove to Asheville. We only saw what was on the web site. How accurate and more they were. Everything that you thought it was, it was and MORE!. Nothing could have been better. The girls in the office were so nice and like our own family. No question was left without an answer. Everything was exactly as we had imagined it. We had the "Biltmore package" and it too was awsome! Each day we toured around Asheville, driving thru the mountains, visiting the sites. At the end of our day, it was back to the cabin! What a refreshing vacation we had!!!!! Cannot wait to see the pictures! Would we go back?.....................you bet.
Wonderful Place, Better Than Expected
We Stayed from 4/2/06-4/6/06
Wonderful place to go! It was much better than expected and a whole lot better than staying in a hotel room. The place felt like home. We wouldn't have minded staying longer. My husband and I went there for our honeymoon and I would definitely recommend the place for yours. When you call for reservations, don't forget to ask about their packages. If you do, you will get one added for free, provided you are staying the minimum number of days. Please see attached pictures for inside cabin views (Jen's Jewel), as their website doesn't contain enough. I will post more pictures in a second review. [--]
Spent a magical week in Asheville staying at the Willow Winds Cabins. The cabin was beautiful, people were so friendly and we just had a chance to relax and recharge. We will definitely be going back. Centrally located to see all that this area has to offer.
Willow Winds the Best
We stayed at Willow Winds cabins which provided us with all the comforts of home and more. The kitchen was fully equipped. Firewood was provided for the fireplace. It was tastfully decorated. We felt as if we were in the middle of the forest but downtown Asheville was just minutes away. The area offers so much to do and the staff at the cabins are very helpful. Dining in the area was wonderful.
