Well, all I can say is....WOW!!!!! When reading the reviews of this place....I want you to seriously look past the negative ones, and read the positive ones. Not quite sure why anyone that stayed at Willows on the River could not have a positive stay there. My husband and I have traveled through out the world, and this place is...

We found this place by accident, I will be back! Right on the water and the pictures are exactly what you get. A full kitchen is awesome, I couls stay forever! Love it. Staff was so accomodating. What a lovely place, and very clean.

This is a condo on Lake Pepin that is spacious, clean, well-equipped, and has something you rarely find in rental units---comfortable furniture and plenty of hooks in the bathroom! Once you're into the off season it's harder to find good restaurants open. But there's actually a pretty good one right here on the water, Sunsets. Oh yes, I forgot to...

We stayed three nights for our 30th anniversary. I would recommend this condo to anyone. It is clean,very large and you cannot find this view for this price. Golf "The Jewel". That course is a hidden treasure.. Get a stay and play package and the golf is so reasonable. We are going back next year.

We have stayed at ‘The Willows’ three times in the past year. The location is great, and the facilities are pretty nice. HOWEVER, I am upset that they don't recycle, hence the low service rating! For some people this may not be a big deal, but to me it is. I’m guessing there are other like-minded people that may be...

The opening line “They don’t recycle” is false, also the statement that “we don’t care” is not at all accurate. Willows does recycle, we recycle aluminum as well as cardboard and paper. This accounts for 98% of our recyclables. We have recycle containers in all units. This person has called every front desk employee of ours for several days to...

If you're looking for a beautiful view this place had it. But that's all it has. My husband and I recently stayed here and this is what we encountered. Stuffing was falling out of the arm of the couch, there was a piece of wood stuck at the bottom of our patio door (perhaps this was supposed to be the...

The number one compliment we get on our survey cards is "this is the cleanest place we have ever stayed", the second being our friendly and accommodating staff. When the customer called at 11 pm and stated that we have no king sized bed but we had 2 single beds pushed together, we explained that all king sized beds come...

I was on the south leg of a motorcycle trip from KC to Lake Superior and it started to rain. I noticed the sign and pulled in asking about a room. We negotiated a far price for the night. When I got to the room I was surprised to see it was a two bed condo. The entire place was...

For the past four years our family has gathered on the 29th of December to celebrate Christmas. The accommodations are great!!!

We docked our boat overnight from the Mississippi River to this hotel. We were surprised at how big the rooms were. We didn't bring foods to make meals, but the kitchen in each room (we had several rooms), had everything you would need to make meals. All rooms face the water. Each room was very well thought out and so...

We stayed in Willows on the river unit #2. It was large than we needed but we wanted a king size bed and this had it. It's a 2 bedroom unit, both rooms with king size beds. One bedroom/bathroom was on the 2nd floor with a balcony. We didn't use that room. The main floor had a bathroom, kitchen/dining, living...

“I would recommend the third floor as it has two level units and does not feel like you are in a hotel. Well worth the extra spend.”
