  • 4 stars but could have been 5 with simple corrections


    The cabin was well-stocked, clean and beautiful. The only reasons we didn't give a full 5-star (one does not reflect on owner but on agency handling rental):

    1. Check in/out time: Couldn't check in until 4 p.m. and had to leave at 10 a.m. So we paid for one full night/day just to have enough time for dinner. Would have been better to have a 4 p.m. check out since check in was so late in the day

    2. Wood stove is either plugged or installed incorrectly and smoke continued to come out of pipe in two areas near top of pipe making the house too smoky to run wood stove and unbearable for a few hours until smoke cleared out.

    3. Picture showed fire pit which was actually not there for use

    4. VCR broke (had we known, I would have brought my own)

    5. Wasn't provided correct info for entry into cabin (1st set upon booking was "key in BBQ" and then 2nd set of info (emailed) provided key entry but wrong code and we had to drive to get service to call owners for good info for entry.

  • Beautiful Cabin


    Loved our stay at your cabin. Clean and the perfect spot to explore the Crouch and Garden Valley area. Enjoyed the hot springs pool and restaurant at Terrace Lake. We will definitely return to this cabin.

  • Winter Stay


    This was a great place to stay - even in the winter - the roads were plowed, so with 4 wheel drive we had no problem getting here - only a short drive from a few hot springs which was our goal!

  • No check- in information! On hold forever!


    The house itself is fine. Comfortable and clean. I really was hoping for a good view, but all the windows look out at propane tanks or roads. The big problem was that I got no email telling me the address, or key code. And I had to call and wait on hold for almost an hour to get this information. Which is very problematic when the cabin is located in an area with very poor /non existing cell coverage.

    Manager's Response:

    Lisa, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark, and after sending your feedback to the homeowner, they would like to share the following:
    -We are glad to hear that you found the house to be "comfortable and clean." Though, we are sorry that you found the view to be disappointing. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to improve this aspect of the home.
    We know how frustrating it is when you can’t reach someone during your stay, and we apologize that Evolve’s communication fell short. We are increasing our staffing to ensure we can respond promptly to guests moving forward. Thank you for your insight, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

  • Loved the Cabin


    The cabin was perfect for our family. We went white water rafting, ate at the little resort restaurant and had a bond fire at the house. It was fun for my kids to see the deer eating in the evening right by the house. Perfect place in Garden Valley.
