Beautiful view, nice layout, loud freeway

  • 4 of 5

I loved the layout and the view from this property. Kitchen and bathrooms are nicely updated. Beds are definitely comfortable. Downstairs is pretty loud if anyone upstairs does anything more than breathe. Freeway noise is very noticeable at all times of day. Not enough paper products (towels/toilet paper) provided for anything more than a two night stay. Not enough hand soap for both bathrooms.

My family and I enjoyed the view. I recommend binoculars so you can see the surrounding areas. If the property had a deck it would great. I enjoyed the experience

Beautiful view on the lake but very noisy location

  • 3 of 5

The house was cold when we arrived, even if I asked many times to have it warmed up,

it is located on the top of the highway, so pretty noisy. Nevertheless, the view is spectacular.

Beautiful view.. But that's it.

  • 2 of 5

First up I have to say the owner Paul was nice and accommodating, but the house had nothing else going on for it other than the view which is great! The cabin itself is pretty old & tired. We came to a cold cold house and it has some different sort of radiant heating from the ceiling which took forever to heat up the place. Paul suggested we start up the fireplace and that helped heat the main living area but the downstairs was very unpredictable temperature wise. We would wake up to a cold room in the middle of the night.. And the temp just wouldn't adjust fast enough.

Additionally when we got to the house, we opened the dishwasher to find dishes that were covered in fungus/mold that was likely weeks old. That was disgusting and a health hazard for sure.

The utensils at the cabin are OLD.. I did read that in other reviews but figured it couldn't be that bad. They're really pretty bad!

Paul was very helpful, but I will not be renting this cabin again. I did not think it was worth what we paid for the quality of cabin. While we enjoyed the view at the cabin, that's about it. So be forewarned if you rent!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry to hear that there were some issues when you first checked in, but the owner has agreed to refund your cleaning fee since the dishwasher had not been started by the cleaning crew. The owner has taken your feedback to heart; a new cleaning crew has been hired and he will be upgrading a lot of the supplies in the house like the pots and pans. Good luck in your future travels! ~ The Evolve Team

Large cabin with great view of Donner Lake

  • 3 of 5

Nice two story 3 bedroom house with master bed and bath downstairs with great views of Donner Lake. Nice large dining and living room with great views. Downside was that the kitchen pots and pans were a bit old and rusty, sun heats the living room up with no shades on side windows, and the traffic noise from Highway 80 is constant and loud.

We are glad you enjoyed the property and we hope to host you again in the future! Cheers, Evolve Team

Excellent cabin at a great price with great views!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nicely laid out and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed and was ideal for cooking.

The living room was perfect for our number and the views from the main windows is outstanding.
