  • A few days of perfection!


    Thank YOU for making available a perfect home for our "Christmas in June" third annual family tradition. We loved the unique and special setting in a wonderful area of Northern Michigan! It was a joy to periodically see the beautiful horses pasturing when we went outside. The home was welcoming, cozy, relaxing and spacious. And thank YOU, too for the table arrangement that greeted us. What a wonderful way to enjoy our first - and every meal - together! On behalf of three of us family members who love to cook, thank you, too, for having all those special gadgets available. No need to bring a cheese grater from home. (smile) We were warmly greeted just days before our planned stay originally, and two years later after rescheduling. Speaking of, thank YOU for providing the ability to reschedule and thank YOU for the extra cleaning measures you have put in place to keep guests healthy. To the reader who may be looking for a wonderful getaway, you will not be disappointed with the Potato House!

  • The Potato House is a great place to stay


    The Potato house was a nice cousey home in the country. The house was very clean and they provided everything you would need for cooking. They provided great instructions on everything and it was easy to check in with a key lock. The house is within a few miles of Harbor Springs, Tunnel of Trees and the Pond Hill Farm. If you are looking for a quit place to stay, this is it. I would stay here again and recommend it to those looking at places to stay in the Harbor Springs area.

  • Some hiccups but overall okay


    So one night I took the windex and paper towels under the sink and cleaned a spot on the table for crafts. I was stunned that the paper towel had my handprints in dirt on the side I used to clean. The cleaning service missed some key spots including the kitchen island as well. There were a couple listed amenities missing that we wanted like a hair dryer and DVD player. After some texts and a call we got the hairdryer from the owner who was nice enough to drop one off. Outstanding is the horse farm next to the property. Peace and quiet in abundance. Also kudos to thinking about everything we could possibly need such as flashlights by our beds and setting up fresh firewood in the fireplace. Fix the cleaning service and this is a higher rating.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Susan, thank you for your review. We wanted to pass along the following feedback from the homeowners: "Dear Susan, we will review the cleaning of all areas. So sorry that this happened. We imagine the handprint you referred to was caused by the Old English stain we use on our antique kitchen island and dining tables.
    Yes, we purchased a new hair dryer right away when I got your call and took it to you directly, and on checkout I personally found the second dryer in one of the bathrooms. No telling what had occurred. As far as the DVD player, Evolve took responsibility for it being on a homeowner listing - I definitely have never promised anything to anyone in our description, that the vacation home can not deliver.
    We are so happy that you enjoyed the peace and quiet, and when these reviews come in, it makes our property standards get better and better. Thank you! Hope you do come back soon!"
