  • Misleading listing


    We booked this cabin specifically for the amenities. Half of the amenities weren’t operational for us to enjoy. For the price we payed for the weekend is kind of disappointing. The hot tub was broken and the water was ice cold. No technicians available to fix the issue until Monday.

    So our stay has been ruined by the lack of preparation for their guest. The playground area outdated and caution taped off. Kids could not utilize it. No fire wood available to enjoy the fire pit. The deck is sketchy and the railing is wobbly, unsafe for kids. We were informed this the day of check in. If we had known of the issues, we would have cancelled to get a full refund. As a property owner, the integrity of the listing and the actual property do not match. We were mislead.

    Now we are out almost 600$ for a miserable stay so far and unhappy kids. The point of staying in a cabin with amenities was to not have to leave and all we want to do is leave.

    Nothing has been made right yet or offered to be made right to our requests.

    Hi Ciera, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We deeply regret that your experience did not meet your expectations and apologize for the inconvenience caused by the non-operational amenities.
    - Regarding the hot tub, we understand your frustration. We offered assistance on the day of your stay, but unfortunately, our technicians were unavailable until Monday. We realize this impacted your enjoyment and apologize for the delay in service.
    - The deck has been inspected by three contractors who have confirmed its structural integrity, although it does tilt. It is deemed safe for children. The playground area, including the ship, is taped off for safety until repairs can be made. While we strive to maintain all amenities, unexpected issues can arise, similar to how major rides at theme parks occasionally go down for repairs.
    - We understand how disappointing this has been, especially given the cost of your stay. Please know that we are committed to improving and ensuring a better experience for future guests.
    Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Great option in southern Indiana


    We loved our stay here. The amenities were enjoyed by the whole family. The only thing to note about staying in the lodge is that it is located above the office (different entrances). For guests who want the whole building to themselves, choose a different cabin on the property.

  • Caution


    It is quite often we utilize Evolve for vacation rentals. One thing my kids will all reference is bugs....they were horrible. The walls were thin and you could hear everything throughout the house. Also quite outdated as there was no dishwasher or washing machine or dryer. Had I paid a lesser amount nightly, I would not have been so critical - but at the nightly rate, expectations fell short.

    I don't typically take time to write reviews, but as I utilize them based on our rentals, I thought future renters should be aware.

    Hi Tracy, we truly appreciate you sharing your thoughts about your recent stay. Your feedback is essential to us, and we've relayed your comments to the homeowner, who would like to address the following: During your stay, we noted the presence of a chipmunk and ladybugs on the property. We took proactive measures by filling the bait traps to address the chipmunk issue. As for the ladybugs, while we can sweep them up, their presence may persist due to our wooded surroundings. As a rustic cabin nestled within eighty-seven acres of woodland, we aim to provide an authentic wilderness experience. The property was recently updated in 2021, following the transition of ownership, we have meticulously detailed all available amenities and features in our listing. We want to emphasize that while we do not provide a washer and dryer or dishwasher, this is accurately reflected in our listing. Ladybugs are a natural occurrence in wooded environments, and it's not uncommon for them to appear when the weather warms up. This is part of the natural ecosystem surrounding our properties. Rest assured, we conduct monthly pest control to manage such occurrences. We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews.

  • Is cozy


    Very clean and nice inside. Do wish it said was on top of the office for the campgrounds. Heather was a very helpful host. Looking forward to coming back hopefully in the spring
