  • Great Place for Seclusion, Not Great for Recreational Lake Usage.


    We stayed here for a friend's birthday weekend. We LOVED how big and openthe property and home was. It allowed a great amount of room for groupmeals, playing pool, baking, cooking, and hanging out in general. Supernice for the rainy days we encountered! When it wasn't raining, we wereable to enjoy the fire by the water, fishing, and canoeing. I even was ableto run the dirt road for 2 mile runs in the morning. They've got plenty ofpots and pans, a coffee pot, and a skillet, making all of our meals easygoing! When we first entered the house, the light switches were a tadtricky to figure out, and could be better if labeled. The toilet flush isalso comically close to the wall, making it hard to flush. Water pressurefor the shower is PHENOMANAL. They could bare to add an additional halfbath. With 5 people staying, there were a few times potty breaksoverlapped. It was dog friendly and out dalmatian loved hanging out andexploring the property! We were a bit disappointed in the "boat access"that was advertised. It is far down the branch and past a vat of stateland. It's not well traveresed waters, so there is a bunch of sea weed,lily pads, stums, and muck. It's a great area for canoeing and kayaking!But, sadly, a speed boat/pontoon/jet ski would not travel well down here.My dad traveled from his place on the lake to the cabin and although he wasable to make it there, it was not an easy feat and wasn't worth it for usto have cruises on the pontoon. This was a bit disappointing for us.Overall a great experience! I don't know that we'd come back secondary tothe limited recreational lake access. However, if you like seclusion ,fires by the water, and wide open spaces, this is the place for you!Dat

    My boyfriend and I plus our two dogs loved this place. Very remote andpeaceful. Great for the dogs to run around and go for a swim. We brought atrolling motor and attached it to the canoe to scoot up the river quicker.We saw deer, turtles water snakes, blue herons/jays .. only caught a babyperch (we tried). Lot's of nature - would love to see this place in thefall. Only negative - no BBQ/bathtub didn't drain well. Very small thingsin comparison to the fun we had - would return. Thanks!!

    We love Miller Sanctuary. It's just what we need to get away for a bit of relaxation. The only downfall was that it seemed a bit dirty when we got there. But we rolled up our sleeves and spruced the place back up, no problem. Thanks for another lovely and memorable time, Ginger!

  • Could have been better...


    We wouldn't chose to stay here again. Upon our arrival, WiFi and TV weren't working. The owner facilitated getting the WiFi up and running (with the aid of a 3-way call with internet service provider). My husband is handy with electronics and found the bad cord and switched it out for TV. Cleaning crew (?) dumped dirt from vacuum bag across from front door and left it there. The tub should be replaced and the drains should be snaked out. Water backs up fast when you take showers and do dishes. The exterior should be power washed. Most of the carpet should be removed. We washed several window sills (lots of dirt and dead bugs). We had two weeks at property and wanted it to be clean. Without being overly critical, it wasn't very inviting. We do have some expectation of cleanliness, as we have rented our property out in Florida and are keen on having everything running properly and the the house be very clean. The spot was pretty, we enjoyed taking the canoe out. We saw lots of wildlife (geese, turkeys, deer).

    Manager's Response:

    Linda, the homeowner would like to pass along the following message:

    "I am sorry that the experience did not meet your expectations. We have always encouraged our guests to contact us immediately if they have issues so that we can address them and meet or exceed their expectations. You did call us regarding the internet and for some unknown reason, the provider had to reset something on their side. Since you were working from our location, unbeknownst to you, I upgraded the internet service so as to accommodate both you and your spouse. I was not notified of any other issues beyond the internet. Our cleaning crew works very hard at cleaning the interior of the house. While cleaning, if they become aware of issues with slow drains they address it and notify us if the problem is not resolved and needs to be addressed by a professional. I truly wish that you would have reached out and communicated at the time. We are very responsive to our guests' comments and concerns."

    Best, the Evolve Team
