  • Nice house, no AC



    House is really nice and very clean

    Furniture and beds were really comfortable

    Quiet and nice neighborhood.

    WiFi worked very well

    Saw elk one morning

    Kitchen had everything you needed for cooking


    No AC. Has portable ac units that are loud so you have to listen to those run all day and night. Was hard to enjoy the peace and quiet. Living room was still warm with that and fans going.

    Skylight in master bedroom made it hard to sleep in or take a nap because it’s so bright in there. No way to block out the sun.

    The steps to the deck are sketchy. Was worried I’d fall thru one of them. Handrailing is splintering so had to be careful not to touch it.

    Backyard is small and was very overgrown so didn’t bother going out there.

  • Terrible! Don’t waste your money!


    Where do I start? First, the backyard was completely overgrown and the area between the screen door and back door was filled with cobwebs, dirt and debris. The kitchen sink leaked every time we washed dishes or ran the dishwasher and flooded the cabinet and floor. The master shower didn’t drain and filled the pan with several inches of water. Some of the windows did not open and all but the bathroom window had no screens. The bathroom window was so dirty that you couldn’t see out of the bottom half of the window. The front deck paint was peeling and the steps leading up to the front door were loose and rocked when you stepped on them. The family room rug was absolutely filthy, as was most of the carpet throughout the house. Several lamps were missing the parts that turn the lamps on and off. I could go on! Many of these issues were reported to the Owner and Evolve by our 2nd day in the house, yet the owner failed to even respond or acknowledge our concerns. We rented the property for 7 long days! DO NOT RENT HILDA’S RETREAT unless you don’t mind living with the conditions listed above.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Carol, the right vacation rental is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they'd like to share the following:
    - We apologize for the state of the backyard and the area between the screen door and the back door. We're in the process of hiring someone to take care of this, trim the bushes, and mow the backyard.
    - The kitchen sink leak has been addressed by maintenance, and the issue causing the leak has been fully resolved. We were unaware of this issue and appreciate you bringing it to our attention.
    - We've confirmed that the shower drain is functioning properly after testing it thoroughly.
    - The absence of screens is due to the installation of window A/C units in the bedrooms and living room for guest comfort. Unfortunately, window A/C units and screens can't be used together.
    - We've shared your feedback regarding cleanliness with our cleaners for their awareness. The carpets and rugs were professionally cleaned a few months ago and were confirmed to be in guest-ready condition.
    - The steps and deck are scheduled for repairs and repainting by early July before the next guests arrive. This will ensure they're safe and visually appealing.
    - An issue with one lamp has been identified, and a replacement will be in place before the next guests as well.
    - We take guest feedback seriously and aim to address concerns promptly. We offered to release you from the reservation with a full refund, but you opted for an industry-standard discount to keep the reservation instead.
    We've addressed your comments with the relevant teams so that future guests will receive the exceptional service we strive to provide.

  • Hilda’s Cabin Retreat a Great Escape


    Hilda’s cabin was perfect for a weekend getaway in Pine! It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Easy to find and a great neighborhood with elk strolling thru the yard! We would definitely stay again. I offer just a few suggestions: refinish the hand rail on the steps - we got a few splinters; replace the memory foam mattress in the first bedroom; and indicate on the listing that the grill is charcoal so guests can be prepared. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • Beautiful location and Peaceful home


    The home was beautiful and clean. We stayed for 4 days. Location was amazing and we saw several elk and deer in the yard daily. The spare bedrooms need to have bedside lights for reading at night. The septic was overflowing and needs to be pumped. We would stay here again.
