    The pictures of this house make it look a lot nicer than it really is. The house could be amazing and the property is beautiful. BUT it is in horrible condition. It is super dirty and not kept up at all!! Everything was dirty. All the used food was still in the refrigerator from the previous guest when we got there. Evolve was the management company. They are AWFUL. I will not rent another house they are managing. They use Motel 6 quality towels in expensive homes. It is like the housekeepers from a bad Motel 6 came to prep the home. There are weeds everywhere. The porch furniture wasn't tidied up. If you happened to move a cushion on a couch there were crumbs and dirt and yucky stuff going back forever!! The house looks amazing in the photos but don't be fooled. It has been used hard. Fabrics are all dirty, rugs are dirty, can't even get into master closet because of the disorganized kid stuff in there. I really didn't even want to sit on the dirty furniture in the house. We left a day early. It was very disappointing. Additionally we never heard a word from Evolve after check in or after we left. Horrible company. Communication with them is awful too. You have to have a separate account from VRBO which is hard to use and you never hear back from anyone. Useless!!

    I found this home 2 years ago before my diagnosis. We rented it for an extended period then I was diagnosed with TNBC.

    Thankfully although I am still on Chemo it is oral and we could carve out some time to finally see the house in person.

    We loved it. It's very secluded which suited us just fine. We loved the view and peacefulness of the lake.

    We did rent a boat for a few days and really enjoyed exploring the lake.

    The house allows privacy for guests as the master is upstairs with Kitchen dining and generous seating and the two additional bedrooms plus bunks are downstairs with a large family room to gather in.

    We hope to someday rent for an extended time in the future.

    House manager Jessica was also the very best and always helpful when I had a question.

    5 stars for sure.

    The property was spacious enough for 6 people and the lake is beautiful. We brought our own boat which proved to be tricky since there is no trailer storage at the house. However, the property manager, Jessica, worked hard to resolve our problem and found us a place to store our trailer. The only negative about our stay was the gnat infestation that plagued us our entire stay. We reported it to the property manager so I'm sure it was taken care of. We would definitely stay at this location again.
