Very deceiving pictures - Poor condition
The good: This place was in a peaceful setting. The back deck was huge and felt like sitting in the forest. The home has a nice open concept and plenty of room to sleep 8. The yard is big with plenty of room to park or for the kids to play. THE BAD……..To start with, the pictures are old and totally misrepresent this home. Pics show 6 nice dining room chairs but really just 4 (sleeps 8/feeds 4). Coffee maker was a tiny 4 cup model. WE had to buy a normal 12 cup model and ONLY 3 coffee mugs in the entire house. Totally different rugs than the pictures. The living room one had edges so curled up that everyone tripped on it. Dining room light fixture was NOT like in the picture. It was a ONE lamp fixture with an Edison bulb that gave off virtually no light. We were literally eating in the dark. The wood flooring was installed wrong and it was coming apart everywhere. The front door jamb was held together with blue painters tape. Looks like it had been kicked in. The entire house was painted by someone with zero painting skills. Recessed light fixtures were painted over and wall paint all over the ceilings. Toilets were filthy inside and out. Upper was unbolted/wobbly and the lower ran constantly. The wood DR/LR floor was filthy……made your feet black, not gray, black! No kitchen towels or wash rags………..not ONE!! WE had to buy them. Counter top laminate was damaged or peeled off in multiple spots. Kitchen cabinets were painted by the same unskilled labor than painted the walls. The porcelain bathroom sinks and tubs/surrounds were painted! Really!! The kitchen A/C vent was filthy with black dust/mold/growth all around it. Just gross! Some kind of green, slimy growth between the window panes in the upstairs left bedroom window. I think ALL the window panes in the house were blown and hard to see out of and no amount of cleaning them will help since the dirt/moisture is trapped inside. Water damage on ceiling in several places. Basic amenities missing,no paper towels, no trash bags, no dishwasher soap, all but empty hand soap dispensers and almost no toilet paper. WE had to buy all that stuff along with coffee cups!! This is place is literally falling apart and the maintenance/renovations /upkeep /cleaning is on a slum lording level. I challenge anyone who rents this place to print off this review and verify the accuracy when you see it in person. Look closely at the pictures on line……….and expect MUCH less!!
The house was ok, needs a lot of TLC. There were a lot of dead roaches on the floor and the downstairs shower head was broke.
The bed pillows needed to be cleaned, really they needed to be replaced with real pillows, they were more decorative than functional.
The upstairs toilet was dirty.
The owner was very accommodating.
We will stay again though, it served our needs.
Kit, thanks for taking the time to leave this review! We are sorry about the aspects of the stay that fell short of your expectations, and have passed your comments along to the homeowner so all issues can be addressed for future guests. She has let us know that the property is treated monthly for pests since it is in a wooded area, and the property was cleaned and inspected mere hours before your arrival, but she would have been more than happy to assist with these concerns had she been made aware! Nonetheless, we appreciate your feedback and will use it to ensure a great stay for future guests. Best, The Evolve Team
Every 6 months we stay at the Trojan Lodge and every time we have stayed it has never ceased to be perfect! We enjoy the Lodge each time we stay and plan to stay for years to come! It is convenient to shopping, restaurants and town and still have a country feel with the trees and peaceful scenery around it. It comfy and huge to hosts lots of entertainment for the family.
Not comfortable, clean, or safe. At all
This house is completely misrepresented by the photos. They have put some of the shoddiest craftsmanship into this place I've ever seen. Ex. One of the beds is held up by a paint can. Yes. Another ex. There are no thresholds in any of the doors so try having 2 toddlers running around. Another ex, porch is completely unusable bc of all of the rotten and missing wood. And couple that with all the slippery moss and mold, you can never have children out there. The bathrooms are tiny and stocked with random garage sale towels that look 25 years old. The entire house looks like a random goodwill assortment of crap. The kitchen has no frying pans baking sheets or utensils. We ended up having to eat out every meal. Which adds up fast. I'm just wondering he's these people clan legally rent a place so dangerous.. oh and there no garage. Well you can't park in there. There are also cameras inside of the house which we immediately put tape over. Creepy. And the front door has been kicked in. I'm assuming by the police, a drug dealer, or a domestic situation. This house is nothing like what I've come to expect from home away and vrbo. I have rented over 10 houses through them and this is by far the most disgusting place ever. Nothing like what I have rented in the past.
We regret that your stay fell short of expectations. As mentioned in a previous review response, we take guest feedback seriously in an effort to ensure accurate expectations are set and issues are addressed. The property owner communicated that these issues were brought up during the stay and every effort was made to ensure your stay was comfortable and a resolution reached due to the dissatisfaction expressed. There are baking sheets, frying pans and utensils located in the kitchen drawers and cabinets. We can also assure future guests there were no incidents whatsoever at the property regarding the doors. This property has hosted happy travelers in the past so we hope to get to the root of where things have fallen short of late. We hope to assist you in your future travels. Best, The Evolve Team
Very old and outdated. Beds were hard as a rock and the place just didn't feel clean.
Not worth the $$. Very old and outdated. Beds were hard as a rock. Just didn't feel clean.
Thank you for your feedback, Paige. At Evolve Vacation Rental, we take all negative reviews seriously and your feedback was shared with the property owner.
We have received information that the mattresses are brand new, so they might still be a little firm due to being unused. Rest assured, the property is thoroughly cleaned before each guest's arrival and the cleaning crew was finishing up just before your arrival as a 3 hour early check-in was granted at no additional cost. We encourage all guests to reach out with any dissatisfaction so that concerns may be addressed immediately.
Additionally, the photos accurately showcase the home and has been enjoyed by past guests as evidenced by the reviews. We are sincerely sorry your stay fell short of expectations.
Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to help you with any future bookings!

This is the 2nd time that we have rented this home in Troy, AL. I can say that we will be renting this house twice a year when we visit there. It is peaceful, roomy, able to hold alot of people comfortably and a quiet area as well. The home is very nice for family to spend quality time together. The Owners are so nice and are easily accessible when you need to call them. Thanks again for allowing us to stay.
