CHARMING, PEACEFUL, COZY.
MY WIFE AND I NEEDED TO GET AWAY FOR THE WEEKEND AND FOUND THIS CHARMING HOME TO MEET ALL OUR NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS. WE FIRED UP THE FIRE PLACE AND HAD A VERY ROMANTIC WEEKEND. THE HOME HAS 2 BEDROOMS AND A LOFT WITH A BED AND A SMALL DECK. WE LOVED IT.
THE ONLY THING IS THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOME NEEDS SOME WORK. THERE IS A SMALL HOUSE IN THE BACKYARD THAT IS RUN DOWN AND WOULD MAKE A GREAT TREE -TYPE HOUSE FOR THE KIDS. IT WILL BE GREAT IF THAT HOUSE IS SPRUCED UP. ANOTHER THING IS THAT A FIRE-PIT IN THE BACK WOULD BE GREAT. BUT OVERALL IT WAS A GREAT DEAL AND I'D RECOMMEND IT!
Perfect cozy chalet for mountain getaway!
We really enjoyed our stay. Perfect for our family of 4. We went out for snow tubing and snowboarding fun then warmed up by the fire and watched movies and played games. The home was very well equipped and everything was as described with some extras we were not expecting. Great location too!
*Beware: House Is Not What Is Shown In Pictures*
My fiancee and I rented this property for the weekend. When we arrived, we saw pieces of siding missing, and the white insulation waving in the wind. Inside, there was a noticeable stale odor. We found used tissues behind the couch. There were numerous cobwebs in the windows, lamps, and most corners. The dish towels had human hair in them. One of the windows in the bedrooms was shattered. Just inside the front door, a large part of the white linoleum had turned black, and the floor underneath was rotting. Don't worry though, they covered that with a rug. In the bathroom, the whole toilet bowl was pink from bacteria growth, and the sink drain was full of human hair. And to top it all off, there was black mold growing in the shower, causing the paint to sag off the wall. We contacted the owner and requested a partial refund. She stated that she would not do that because she has "not had complaints in the past nor have the numerous 5 star reviews", and did not seem concerned with these problems. The pictures on this site were taken a LONG time ago, but now we have some more current pictures for the complaint.
Drew, we are so sorry to hear that your stay fell short of your expectations. We've shared your review with the homeowners, who let us know that they are in the process of having the house vinyl sided, but this is a weather-permitting project. The house is cleaned thoroughly after each rental. As for the toilet, the water that sits in the bowl leaves an iron residue. As for a musty smell, the homeowners have not had complaints in the past, as evidenced by their many glowing reviews. The homeowners did their best to accommodate your requests during your stay, even providing you an early check-in and a late check-out for your convenience. The owners certainly wish that they had been given the opportunity to address any concerns you had immediately, rather than several days into your stay. We regret that our attempts at finding a suitable resolution proved unsatisfactory and we wish you all the best on your future travels. Best, the Evolve Team
Great little place
Very clean and cozy. Will definitely be back.
Just stayed here with a friend for Thanksgiving weekend. Theresa and Ken were wonderful and even answered the phone on the holiday, when we weren't sure if the welcome center would be open for check-in or not. (It was! It's really open 24/7.) The description and photos are all accurate. We cooked a bunch; the kitchen is well equipped; they even had cute seasonal decorations up. We also got a fire running and roasted some marshmallows. I would stay here again!
Wonderful and Peaceful Environment
We had a really nice relaxing time with our girls. Even with the weather being off (cloudy, cool, rainy) we able to enjoy days a the lake, pool and playground. My fiancee got a fire going and we had movie nights. It was quaint and quiet. Minor issues that we fault, not the host/hostess but maybe, the quest (s) before us.
