If you are looking for “no frills” and good location this “may” be your place. There is an old, mildewy smell throughout the house. I bought a candle and some spray and that made it better. The kitchen slopes down, no dishwasher, one bathroom, no soap, and some lights worked and some did not. Front door light did not work, and it was very difficult to get there. Debbra, the contact was great. She stayed on the phone with me until I got there. Don’t plan on cooking anything unless you buy dishes and
silverware. There was minimum utensils.
Hi Courtney, we’re so glad you enjoyed the location, but we’re sorry other aspects fell short of expectations. After sending your feedback to the owner, they’d like to share the following:
- Thanks for the feedback - we strive to make this older cabin as comfortable as possible for our guests and we’re very sorry to hear there were some frustrations during your stay!
- We were at the property prior to your stay and can confirm there was extra soap. We wish you had let the Guest Contact know of your concerns. She would have been more than happy to assist you with this. We're glad she provided you with the 5-star customer service that we strive for.
We do our best to keep the unit, clean, efficient and fully functional and we're confident that future guests will have excellent stays!
Clean, well maintained. The grandkids loved the playground and taking the kayak into the pond

Evolve group provided good communication through the process, however I do not feel their description of the place or it’s amenities was at all accurate. There is a closet in the center of the cabin that, when opened, smelled absolutely HORRIBLE! And their solution to this problem was to install an automatic air freshener next to the door to cover the smell. All that accomplished was co-mingling flowery scent with awful, death-like scent. IF you can get past the smell, the sloping floors, low ceilings, doors that don’t close or stay open and toilet that wobbles you might be able to see that the place is fairly clean, even if very outdated. You might be able to see that it’s fairly well appointed with the things you’d need for a “comfortable” stay. Though, you might be like me…concerned the whole place might slide down the hill, taking you with it the whole time you’re there. Not kidding! You will be standing at an angle the whole time you’re in the cabin. If that wasn’t enough. despite a couple of the beds being fairly comfortable, the noise from the highway will keep you from getting a good night sleep. So maybe go de-stress in the public hot tub? Only if you want to walk across the yard, across a gravel drive, across another yard then into another space where other tenants are staying to get to the “shared” hot tub. We were only staying 2 nights but after the first seriously considered abandoning this place for a hotel. Not wanting to spend money we’d already spent, stuck it out. Overall, was not a pleasant experience. I do not recommend.
