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.

A nice retreat for the family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the property for 5 nights. The property sits on a wooded lot with plenty of privacy from the neighbors. Bring your bug spray as the nats and mosquitoes were pretty bad. The fire pit area is large enough to fit a group of 10+ and there was plenty of wood already chopped and ready to burn. The accommodations of the home were as described. The main floor is open concept, so everyone felt connected whether they were in the kitchen, dinning area or living area. The kitchen is small and dated, but it had everything we needed to make meals to serve 7 adults and 3 kids. The bedrooms were ok (the mattresses are rock-hard, which my wife loved but took me a few nights to get used to). The bunk beds on the second floor are old and don't really meet today's standards for safety. We did not use the top bunks and had to instead use the pull-out in the upstairs loft area (right outside the bunk bed room). The internet is spotty, especially when multiple people are using it at once, but we were still able to stream movies at night (using the Roku stick that we brought with). The owner's club is nice and is located just a short drive from the property, as are the main lodge and other activities such as hiking trails and the horse stables. Overall, we had a nice experience.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and very nice house! Perfect location - just 15 minutes away from Galena downtown and 30 minutes from Mississippi Palisades States park (both a must see). We truly enjoyed private surroundings of the property, hot tub was a nice addition. Our family had a great time celebrating Father's Day in this beautiful place.

Lovely site, clean house, easy to find

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our late-20s Chicago-area daughter and a few friends, several of them chefs, for a getaway weekend in March 2017. They arrived late at night, found the house well-lit, and loved their stay. They used the hot tub and the fire-pit, enjoyed both, and said they'd like to return for another visit. The local manager was professional and returned calls immediately.
