  • Misrepresented Property


    I have stayed at other properties and they were great. The hosts were great and we had everything we needed. BUT this place was terrible. The pictures of the property are not up to date. It is run down and not taken care of. The lock on the door to get in was difficult to open. There was no can opener or a lid for any of the skillets. The window sills were full of cobwebs and dead bugs. There is a small piece of wood that hangs down in the doorway by the kitchen that is dangerous. My husband bumped his head on it. There was so much dust on the bedroom floor I could write my name in it! The shower head does not spray, The sheets on the beds were so wrinkled it look like they had been slept in, and most important of all there was NO internet the whole time we were there. We contacted the host who brought us a can opener and a lid but said nothing about the internet. I sent Evolve a message about it and they never responded. I have been trying to get a hold of Evolve for a week now but have had no luck. They hung up on the person from Vrbo who was trying to help me. So I will stay away from any property that Evolve manages. They do not care and you will not get any help.

  • Cute House


    The house was very cute with a lot of antiques. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels available. The house had beautiful views of the mountains and was very close to downtown.

  • No TVs or cooking stuff


    Overall not too bad for money spent. Good location and access. No TVs in any bedrooms. Limited cooking utensils or supplies in cabinets. Owner wanted dishes washed but no dishwasher or even dish drainer. Doors sticking in door frames. Needs screen door on back door since door sticks in frame and tough to open/close. No wood for fireplace. Okay for a bunch of guys to kick back it was adequate but not for a family to prepare meals or spend any extended amount of time. Owner needs to step up and furnish/supply property.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Gabe, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    -We do provide a TV but don't provide TVs in the bedrooms.
    -We feel the kitchen is well-equipped. We have a dish drainer stored under the sink.
    -We apologize there was no firewood, and our listing states it's not provided. We will supply some during the winter months though.
    We appreciate your feedback, and are glad you enjoyed the location!
