    The hosts were friendly and extremely helpful. We had a very relaxing, peaceful time which was exactly what we were looking for. The accommodations were awesome. The cabin is quaint and charming with so many thoughtful decorations. We highly recommend this location for any travelling to the area.

  • Great Location!!


    My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this cabin! It was the perfect base to venture out and do some hiking. The hosts were very friendly and made sure we were comfortable.

  • a charming log cabin in the woods


    Our family enjoyed this wonderful quaint log cabin in the woods. The hosts, Andrea and James, were very attentive to our need. Having no TV was a big plus. We even played board games together. We had a great time in the log cabin.

  • Disappointed


    When I originally booked this property, I choose it because it was described as secluded and private. It was not listed that the owners live on the property. Not only do they live on the property, but their home is just feet away. The cabin is situated between the owner's home and garage. If I knew this to be a case, I would have never rented it. I was looking for seclusion and privacy. I see that the description was recently updated to include the information about the owners living on the property. The description that was listed when I rented the property is that it was on acreage up next to forest service land. It did not mention anyone else living on the property.

    It is important for me to say that the owners are very kind. They are quiet and caring. They did nothing wrong. I just really do enjoy the seclusion of the mountains and complete privacy.

    The other issue with the property is that it was terribly and uncomfortably hot. There was a portable air-conditioning unit in the cabin, but it made very little difference. The front room cooled a bit, but the kitchen and the upstairs room remained quite hot. I brought in two additional fans, but it made no difference. The one night we did stay we got little to no sleep due to the heat. Also, I enjoy cooking, but the kitchen was already quite hot, so cooking anything just made it even hotter. The portable air-conditioner is not equipped to cool off a cabin of that size.

    We stayed only one night and I left. I was contacted by "The Resolutions Team" with evolve via email on July 20th. I responded to them on the same day. It is now July 26th and I still have not received a response back from the "Resolutions Team".

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Cynthia, The homeowners strive to provide truly 5-star experiences for their guests, and they wish that you had let them know that you weren't comfortable during your stay - they would have been able to immediately assist you!
    - We confirmed that the listing description advertised that the owners were on-site well in advance of when you booked your stay
    - Their home is ~60 feet away from the cabin, and the cabin has its own yard with outdoor amenities, including a gazebo and swing
    - The owners give their guests every privacy unless the guest reaches out first
    - There is an A/C unit on the main floor and fans in the kitchen and the loft
    - This has always been enough to keep travelers comfortable, but we know that you stayed during a record-breaking heatwave
    - The owners are upgrading their A/C system to make sure that travelers can enjoy their stay, no matter the temperature
    As you can see from other guest feedback, these owners are known for their 5-star hospitality. We're confident that future travelers can look forward to a fantastic experience at the cabin!

  • Surpassed Expectation


    The cabin was well furnished and suited us quite comfortably. And the host was very courteous and friendly and looked after our every need. In addition to accommodating our privacy they were also available in friendly fellowship.
