Wonderful family get away off the grid.
We had a nice long weekend at the cabin. Living space is limited but very efficient, we had plenty of space, especially with the beautiful deck and screened in porch. We traveled 4 kids and 4 adults. The cabin was clean and the amenities were wonderful. The hot tub was a great way to unwind and watch the stars. It's off the beaten path, but a great family getaway to play at the lake (we paddleboarded, kayaked, swam and fished). We played games and enjoyed the fire in the evenings. Owner was very quick to respond and answer any questions. Cabin is just as the description states. Great vacation! Can't wait to go back.
The picture makes it look like a two story building but you only have access to the top floor so pay attention to how little square footage there is. This places is essentially just a single-wide trailer that has been remodeled to look like a "cabin." The water has A LOT of sulfur which will quickly fill the entire house as soon as you turn the sink on. It also makes showers pretty tough. It says that it sleeps 10 but that is counting two baby beds on one of the lofts. In reality this house could only work for a couple with multiple kids. More than 2 adults and your sleeping situation would be too tight.
Eric, thanks for taking the time to review your stay! While we do our best to include all of this in the description, we - and our future guests - appreciate your helpful tips! We've also passed your feedback along to the homeowner, so any necessary changes can be made. Thanks again! Best, The Evolve Team
Great place to get away from everything
Absolutely beautiful. Very secluded and extremely peaceful. The owners were very accommodating and friendly.
Great place. Had the whole lake to ourself.
We had a great time. Was a little hard getting up the hill up but everything else was great. Went fishing with the kids they each caught a fish for the first time, myself included. Walked around the lake and my son caught a little baby turtle. Was a nice quite vacation under the star with the fire pit and marshmallows.
Not worth the $$$
My husband and I were looking to get away from it all as we do every year. Our budget is typically about $200-$250/night. We usually get a really nice cabin for this price. We paid this much for Cabin in the Woods and were pretty disappointed. The pictures are not accurate, using a wide angle lens to give the cabin a much bigger look than it actually is. The heater was on the other side of the house from the one main bedroom, so we froze through the night. It also made a horrible squealing sound through the night. The bed itself was hard as a rock. We did not check out the lofts at all. We also never knew whether we had access to anything in the basement. The deck was quite lovely, as was the hot tub and fire pit. However, we could not sleep on the bed, freezing and trying to ignore the heater-squeal, so we left after our first night. Perhaps the cabin is better in the warmer months, when you can sit outside and enjoy the lake. Unfortunately, we spent a lot of money on a place that was not worth it to us.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We apologize for the trouble you experienced during your stay. Our goal for the professional photography shown on the listing is to show as much of the house as possible in the limited amount of photos we can display, and we apologize if you feel this falsely advertised the property. There had been issues with the central heating prior to your stay, but a repairman came to service the heater and had confirmed the issue was fixed. It's possible the squealing noise was coming from the heater, and the owners will be looking into this further when they visit the property this month. They will have a repairman come service the heater again to ensure these issues do not happen again. We encourage guests to reach out while in residence if any issues arise so we are able to help address them immediately. The owners have not received complaints about the master bed before, but we apologize it was uncomfortable for you. The basement is not advertised on the listing, as it is unavailable to guests and always remains locked when guests are in residence. We are sorry to hear you had to leave a night early and we will be in touch with you about this shortly. Thank you again for your constructive feedback.
