    Very good experience. The property was clean with thoughtful touches throughout, including a tray of snacks and bottle of Chardonnay waiting for us at check in. All instructions were clear. The house/log cabin was comfortable. This would be a great place for a family vacation, especially in winter, as there is a very good sledding hill in back.

    Group of friends enjoyed our stay. Beds comfortable. Use of electric blankets makes it very cozy. Lovely gift of wine, cheese, and crackers, as well as chocolates. Well stocked kitchen. Great instructions. Responsive host. Thank you. All agreed that we would choose this rental in the future.

    We enjoyed our time and look forward to staying here again!!! Close to Jiminy Peak, a swing in the yard for kids and close to many of the wonderful Berkshire attractions. Owners were great hosts. A prefect 5 stars!

    I will base my review on Vrbo listing not the Evolve one.TLDRWe enjoyed our stay. Beautiful region. No dishwasher (major downer). No heating in the bedrooms. I do not think we will go back. There are similar/better places in the area.I think Evolve's involvement increases the full price (too much cleaning fee). I might be wrong.DetailsBad:- There is no dishwasher. Vrbo listing says "fully equipped kitchen" but it is not.- After paying almost as much as the stay for the cleaning fee, we are required to "bring the bedding to the washer and start the cycle". Why am I paying the cleaning fee again?- No heating in the upper floor where bedrooms are located. Suggested solution by the owners: "Leave the doors open, hot air rises". However, electric heated blankets are provided.- The first floor bathroom sink drains veeeeery slowly.Good:- Clean house.- Detailed instructions.- We had a snow storm during the stay. Driveway was plowed promptly.- Did not need owner interaction during the stay and there was no unnecessary intrusion (we had such experiences in other places)- Beatiful and quiet area.
