  • Nice and Quiet


    Great location and beautiful setting. The house was very comfortable and accommodated 16 of us very well. It just needed a better cleaning and some TLC on the upkeep.

  • Perfect for our family gathering


    This property was perfect for our family gathering of 7 adults and 6 children. The main upstairs kitchen was spacious and well-equipped, separated from the dining area with a bar countertop. The two tables (one in the kitchen and one in the dining area) and bar seating providing plenty of space for everyone to enjoy meals together, with a screened-in porch providing scenic views and an additional area for gathering that was visible from inside (perfect for keeping an eye on the kids). The living room provided comfortable seating and included a library of books for all interests and ages. There were plenty of beds and bathrooms so that each of our four family units could have their own private area. There was lots of room for storage and plenty of spaces to spread out for visiting. Two refrigerators (one upstairs, one down) and plenty of sinks (2 in each kitchen) made food storage and prep easy. The large outdoor yard provided a great space for outdoor games and activities. Plenty of comfortable porch seating. Be advised, the admonition about no Wifi or cable TV is correct. Most of our phones had no service; there was only limited Verizon service (1 1/2 bars max, slow). The cabin is located in a very scenic area with lots of outdoor activities to enjoy -- if you truly want to get away to enjoy your family and the outdoors, this is a perfect place to do it!

  • Wonderful, large cabin in a unique setting!


    This was a perfect place for our family to gather and enjoy time with each other. The history and unique qualities of the conservancy made it very interesting. We were there during extreme July heat, and we still found plenty to do indoors nd outdoors. More care could be taken to the outside of the property, especially in the backyard, and to the needed repairs of the dishwasher, but overall the place was nice. We would recommend adding a ping pong table to the basement, due to the perfect space.

  • Disaster!!!


    We arrived at our cabin to find another group already there. This was a double book situation. We had reserved in early December, the other group rescheduled after a June 2020 cancel. This was my Christmas gift for our adult children and their families. We were promptly ushered away from the property by White Rock staff but assured that we would receive a call from Evolve. We were told that they would find alternate arrangements for our group. In the mean time, we were in Coon Rapids entertaining families that had driven 10 hours with small children. After hold times of 30 to 40 minutes, no return calls, it became clear that it was never their plan to find us an alternate stay. We ended up checking into a Des Moines hotel, 60 miles away at 10 pm. We had everything carefully planned, and communicated frequently with White Rock staff. Book here, have a back up plan! Otherwise you look like an idiot! We did receive a full refund, plus a voucher that I will likely never use.
