Great secluded getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cute house in the mountains. Its in a very secluded and rural area about 25 minutes from Asheville so if you are hoping to be downtown a lot probably not a great fit - was perfect for our family who wanted to enjoy mountains and hikes close by. Fun hot tub and great outdoor space we enjoyed with the kids - thanks for a great weekend!

Cute, quiet cabin in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was cute, quaint and met most of our needs for the 5 days we were there. The hot tub was awesome and we soaked every night under the stars, when clouds did not obscure. Some of the neighbors were a bit sketchy and had extremely trashy yards, but we never felt unsafe. We did have a hard time starting the gas fireplace and called and spoke to Chris. He was helpful, but not much he could do since he was in Raleigh. The local person did not answer their phone ever and we were not able to leave messages. Finally, we got the fireplace started after about 30 minutes of trying. We also endured a ladybug infestation the first two days we were there. Not sure why, but they all congregated around the dining room window. We just kept scooping them up and putting them back outside. I could think of worse infestations than little ladybugs! :) The one thing that made me give my review only 4 stars, was the lack of communication with the rental company. I sent several emails that all went unanswered. I finally spoke to someone on the phone because we extended our stay by one more night and I asked about Christmas decorations and if the owner decorates the cabin. The gentleman said he did not know, but would inquire and let the owner know. Well, when we arrived there were no decorations. We would have brought our own had we been given an answer one way or another. I had also inquired about some $49 charge, "Accommodations Protection Program" and nobody answered me regarding that either. All in all, I would return knowing what I know now. And it's very close to Asheville....25 minutes!

Great Experience

  • 4 of 5

We loved our love nest. We suggest planning accordingly. Everything is a 20-30 minute drive away. We got dinner and food from Ingles before headed to the cabin. Only dislike would be the living room does not have curtains for the windows; therefore at night we felt like someone could be watching us so we just stayed in the rooms after dark. Quiet and relaxing area. Overall great experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Jay, Thanks for the review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. The restaurants/shops of Asheville and Weaverville are a 20 minute drive, but we hope you were able to use the convenience stores as well for any basic goods. These are within 10 minutes of the property. The owner would like to thank you for the feedback. There is one bay window in the dining room without any blinds. However, the owner will be putting in curtains for complete privacy. Glad to see you enjoyed the experience and we hope to see you again soon! Best, The Evolve Team

Not a bad spot, minus a few things

  • 1 of 5

Overall the cottage was ok. When we got there the place was 99 degrees and it was so hot the entire place was hot to touch...literally. Seemed like someone had set the thermastat to the wrong setting. Had to open all the windows, put the air on and air outside for a little bit. There were a lot of dead bugs (and live ones) lady bugs, stink bugs and about a hundred dead yellow jackets in the one window. Luckily bugs don't really bother me, just probably would be better without them! Gives the impression thing could be cleaner/more tidy. Other than those things, the beds were comfy, jacuzzi was clean and good directions and info for things to do around the area!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review this property, happy to hear you enjoyed the property! We are sorry that the temperature was off upon your arrival, the property does come equipped with A/C to moderate warm temperatures. Bugs are natural in the area and the unit has screen windows to prevent them from entering the house. The owner has notified his cleaners to be more diligent about removing these from the window screens and ensure that the thermostat is set at an appropriate temperature. We apologize for these two aspects, the owner encourages guests to reach out with any issues during the stay so that they may be corrected immediately. Best, The Evolve Team
