My usual hotel was booked for the weekend, so I called The Willows. I thought the rate would be out of my budget, as these are beautiful 1-bdrm (they have 2-brms, too!) condos right on Lake Pepin. However, after contacting the Willows & speaking with an extremely friendly representative, I found the rates to be competitive with area hotels. Because...

There were five of us so the two bed plus loft with two baths was perfect. Great outlook of the lake and the mighty Mississippi. The pool and spa were great fun and quite warm. The suite is fully stocked to eat meals in if you so choose plus has a w/d. Stayed here a few years back and will...

This was a girl friend weekend and when we walked into our unit, it was well equipped, beautiful open windows to the lake, inviting fireplace had it been cooler. great bed and the pullout sofa was quite comfortable as well. The paddle boat was right out at the dock and looked darling and fit for a great ride around the...

Lake Pepin is a River Lake, the widest spot on the Mississippi River. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you will return. As for the Restaurant, the Condo Company is a separate business and we have no control over it's abrupt going out of business, or when someone will purchase the Restaurant. We too hope to get...

Excellent place on Lake Pepin with full front view of lake-sans fireplace. Fully furnished condos with indoor hot tub and pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. The Pearl of the Lake tour boat docked right by condos. A boat trip will worth doing for scenery and commentary.

We decided to do a weekend get away and the Willows on the River had a 1 bedroom available. Being an owner of RCI condos, we were prepared for the same old, same ole. We were pleasantly surprised by the warm reception of all the front desk staff. Our unit (208) was very well equipped and quite well maintained. There...

This was actually our second time going to Willows. The condo's are very nice. We were a little disappointed this time, the restaurant that is attached to the Willow's went out of business in June. I wish they would have mentioned that when I made the reservation. These condo's truly look over Lake Pepin. There is a walking/biking path along...

This was the second year we stayed at Willows on the River in Lake City, MN . 15 miles down the great river road is Stockholm Wi. This was 41st anniversary of the upper midwest largest art festival. Saturday night we ate at Nosh restaurant in Lake City. Excellent food and great choices of wine. The restaurant sits on the...

The Willows on the River has become our favorite getaway location. The view is spectacular and the rental condos are terrific. Since we live in Minneapolis it only takes us about 50 minutes to start enjoying our time away from home. The floor to ceiling windows provide a beautiful view of Lake Pepin and the MIssissippi River. If you are...

lovely place, but the people behind the front desk sadly were not at all helpful. We asked for a late check out on a very very quiet Sunday and were given the "what if everyone did that" and "my manager/owner doesn't allow me to do this". I left my pillow behind and called asking if they could ship it. This...

One of the things people always comment on is how friendly our staff is. We have survey cards in each suite and I don’t even recall a complaint regarding our front desk staff being unpleasant. We do our best to accommodate guests, we were able to let this person check in at 10:30 am, (check in time is 3 pm),...

I have stayed at the Willows condo twice in the last two years. I might try to make it an annual tradition. It's such a beautiful drive between Lake City and Wabasha especially in Fall when the leaves are turning color with the bluffs and Lake Pepin. The service at the Willows has been very good and friendly and they...

“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.”
