great weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a weekend away with friends to go skiing and have fun. This place did not disappoint! We had a great time. The only thing we had complaints about was the lack of garbage cans in the house. There was so many small cans that filled up immediately. And the dumpsters we had to throw them out in were so far away! It was a big inconvenience. And some of our friends got a rash from the hot tub a couple days after our stay. I would definitely recommend this place but tell them it’s worth it to pay the trash fee and make sure the hot tub is clean!

enjoyed the stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and as advertised. This is not the house for little kids or those who have trouble with stairs. We had adults and a couple kids so things were crowded, we were short some dishes and silverware for everyone. 6 people would be just fine in the house. Only issue is with the coffee maker, it was very slow and had us arm wrestling over who got the dribbles coming out.

Beautiful home. Secluded and what I expected

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home. Plenty of room for our party of 12 for my daughters bachelorette party. Loved the outdoor deck and hot tub. Well maintained and clean. Close to Countryside wine tour, dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes and shopping in town. Definitely would recommend!

Love the territory unfortunately not this house

  • 2 of 5

We've been staying in the territory over 10 years. Very disappointed in this stay. Upstairs tv did not work, the fire pit area was very muddy, the hammock was very dirty, no lights on the stairs outside very hard to see, refrigerator was not cold.

Owner's Response: Colleen, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience in this home and we are very sorry to hear of the issues you experienced. We’ve shared your feedback with the homeowner who let us know that the issues with the fire pit and hammock were unfortunately a result of two very large recent storms. The first storm created a little gully down the steep hill, which diverted water and mud onto the fire pit patio. It was cleaned, but the second storm hit before they could create a more permanent diversion for the gully that was created. Both have been taken care of since. The homeowner also let us know that the cable company has been called to address the issue with the upstairs TV, the lights will be replaced, and the refrigerator settings updated to ensure these issues don’t recur for future guests. We thank you for letting us know, as we want guests to have an exceptional stay in this vacation home. Best, The Evolve Team

Bachelorette Party weekend

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. It was a nice weekend getaway! Although some of the lights didn't work the place was very spacious and not too far of a drive from downtown.
