  • Horrible check in. Disappointing


    There was no check in instructions sent to me. I got there and the doors were locked. I sent an email out to the property manager and I didn't get an email until 5 hours later. Very DISAPPOINTING

    Cute house, however the pictures are misleading- thought that this property was one of the lake front condos. It is not. So the view of the lake is only a small portion out of the sliding door/windows, which didn’t work well due to the dirt in the track. The cottage Was on the back of the lot by the road. It should be listed as lake access not lake front. The house has large black ants that were on the counter and floors in the kitchen. And we were unable to reach the property manager by phone. Stairs down to the lake on one of the dock sites were broken and that dock access should have been closed due to the safety regarding the stairs.

    Hi Pamela, we're sorry that this home did not exceed your expectations. We followed up with the homeowners, who would like to share this response:
    - We cleaned the track on the sliding door soon after your stay. There is a lot of sand and pine needles that can collect there.
    - Yes, our cabin should be listed as lake access. We have asked Evolve to update that.
    - We've noticed large ants outside this summer but none inside the cabin. We will continue to monitor this to ensure it does not become an issue.
    - The broken stair had caution tape added to it shortly after your stay. We plan to have it repaired soon. There are two other stairways to the lake that should be used if concerned about this stair.
    - We did not receive communication from you during your stay. Our apologies if Evolve or our two property contacts were not responsive. Hopefully, future renters will try all of us if something needs to be addressed during the stay.
    Thanks for your helpful feedback!

  • Great Getaway for Snowmobiling


    We enjoyed our stay, the location was perfect for snowmobiling. Communication was great with the owner. The cottage was clean, had everything we needed. There was room to park the trailer, truck, car and snowmobiles. There were places to eat or have a drink very close, one within walking distance. We would stay here again.

  • Snowmobile Long Weekend


    Very nice new construction home, great location for snowmobilers, on the trail, supper club just a short walk away and popular restaurant/bar stop just down the street. I'll be back next year for sure.
