  • Awesome little mountain retreat


    We thought this Mountain Lighthouse was very cozy and fun. Stay was just what we expected. We had a great time here.

  • Great Location, but needs some upkeep.


    For starters, I am not sure who is at fault for the cons between the owners and the Evolve managers. Overall I had a great vacation and a lovely time at the home. It was a great place for two people. Had the cons not been a factor I would definitely stay again! The cons are not meant to be rude, but just some critiques.Pros:-Great communication anytime I had a question-Loved the concept of the house-Great Location-Affordable-Gas appliances-Easy check-in/check-out instructions-Fire pit with picnic tableCons:-Was given inaccurate check-in instructions so had to call the contact number at 11 PM for the correct door code. -Dirty (Upon arrival we found a lot of dead bugs on the kitchen floor, I killed multiple spiders in the kitchen sink and window area. There were also spiderwebs in the corners of the shower and bedroom, and there was dog hair/dirt on the bedspread and sheets before our dog was even upstairs. -No A/C (a big deal in the summer because the ceiling fan does not help cool down the house.) A spare box fan was upstairs for us to use, but still did not do much, and cooking with a gas oven made it even hotter.-The yard was overgrown and made walking the dog around the property at night and early morning very difficult, in addition, the dog kennel on the property looked unsanitary.-Had no hot water the first night, wasn't aware the water heater had been turned off and had to locate it. -The fire pit was not very useful due to the overgrown weeds.

  • Awesome


    We had some fun times at this Octagon home. The listing was described accurately. Home was clean and had all the items needed for our stay. Some of the amenities that we used were the gas grill, gas oven, and the Keurig. We also used the iron and ironing board. Worked perfectly. Thanks for a lovely long weekend. Note that there was not a hair dryer so, if you need one, bring one.

  • Great place to get away


    Cute little house in the mountains. CLEAN! Not too far from downtown but far enough away to see stars on a clear night. Owners are very polite. Will definitely book again
