    The cabin was well maintained and had everything you need for your stay. Loved sitting out on the deck every morning with coffee and every evening with a glass of wine. The hummingbirds were fun to watch. The downstairs bed was very comfy.

    The view from the covered deck was wonderful. The cabin was very clean had everything we needed. It advertised a outdoor grill (griddle) but when we got there the instructions not to use or use with your own gas.

    The biggest issue was the lack of clothes storage in the bedrooms. Only one closet available on main floor for all three bedrooms. The loft bedroom had a chest and a large closet that was locked for owner storage. The lower level had no closet or chest.

    The road to the cabin was a winding newly paved single lane road. Fortunately during our weeks stay we did not meet another vehicle.

    There was a lot of humming birds to enjoy and the game room was great.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "Thank you for your stay, Howard. Your feedback is much appreciated. I would note, if you ever come back, that the grill is attached to the main gas line directly and that there is a timer next to the grill that you turn on before using the grill. It certainly works and we actually do not want anyone needing to bring their own gas. Thanks!"

    We enjoyed a 4 week stay by 4 adults. The drive up to the house is a narrow winding road, but we became more comfortable with it after a few days. The view from the deck is wonderful and we enjoyed many sunsets. We also enjoyed watching from our tree top perspective the song birds and hummingbirds visit the feeders on the porch. The house had great wifi service and smart TVs in every room. We often listened to Apple Music on the Sonos speaker in the living room . We cooked many meals on the black stone grill on the porch and the compact well equipped kitchen. We frequently utilized the full sized stacked washer and dryer. The property representative was responsive to several urgent requests during our stay. We played Pickleball in Murphy, Hayesville, and Hiawasse. We caught brown and rainbow trout in July in Bryson City and the Upper Nantahala. We rafted the Nantahala Gorge. We visited Franklin, Cherokee, Bryson City, Brasstown Bald, Blairsville, Hayesville, Fires Creek Falls, Lake Chatuge, Elijay, and Murphy. Summer weather was comfortable.

    We stayed for 4 weeks during the summer. Home is well equipped with kitchen equipment and supplies (except heavily scratched nonstick cookware), Blackstone grill, excellent Wi-Fi, and large smart TVs in each room. A/C cooled well. Narrow drive up the hill to the cabin was intimidating, but became more routine over time. Beds were comfortable except for lower bunks. Stacked washer/dryer is large and worked very well. Evolve local representative did not respond to email and text pre-check in requests, but response was exceptionally fast to two requests during our stay. We loved watching the gorgeous sunset view every night. The songbirds and hummingbirds visiting the feeders entertained us daily. We visited Bryson City, Nantahala Gorge, Cherokee, Franklin, Hayesville, Blairsville, Blue Ridge, Elijay, and Lake Chatuge. We enjoyed white water rafting, boating, hiking, fly fishing, and Pickleball.

    My wife and I have rented many VRBO's over the last 10 years and usually they have some pros and cons. This property has only pros. The beds and living room furniture were extremely comfortable. The views from the deck are gorgeous and we especially enjoyed refilling the hummingbird feeders and watching them feed. WIFI is fast and there are Smart TV's in every room. Although we didn't use the lower level, it is set up for fun activities with a game machine, TV, foosball and table bowling. The road up to the house, although narrow is paved the entire distance. I can't say enough good things about this house. Great house, great views and easy access to town. Besides all this, there is a great restaurant 3 miles away, Julie's Place.
