Charming but needs updates
Location was great and the cottage was charming and private, though in need of some updates. The worst part by far was the bed upstairs. It was so uncomfortable we didn't sleep well the entire week. Not conducive to a relaxing vacation. Putting a thick piece of cheap foam over an old mattress is not great idea.
It was great
Internet needs work, outside of that very peaceful and fun!
Hi Kevin, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed this peaceful cabin! The homeowner has recently updated their WiFi so that the speed and connection will be greatly improved for their upcoming guests. Thank you for your review, and we hope to host you again soon. Best, the Evolve Team
Very cute just like grandmas
Great place, fully stocked with everything you could need. Sounds of the creek are so peaceful. Sadly we didn't get to have fires at night because there was a sign in the firepit that said there was a fire ban and we didn't realize there wasn't AC but we only got hot 1 out of our 5 nights. Instructions were very clear about what to do and no to do. No TV downstairs felt like a bummer at first but we found we didn't need or want it in the end we just hung out and played games. We really enjoyed our stay and it was a perfect location for us with all of the Jeep trails we planned on in the area.
Our second stay in this quiet comfy cabin. We love it here!!!!! Nothing like relaxing outside, reading a book and listening to the sound of the creek!!!! Hope to visit a 3rd time.
Clean, great location but needs attention.
This cabin is located in a perfect location for access to both Ridgeway and Ouray. It was clean and the beds were decently comfortable. The kitchen was adequately appointed. The owner needs to give the property attention. There were notes staged around the cabin. In the kitchen, not to use the Jenn-Aire grill as it wasn’t working and to push the refrigerator door closed because the seal was not working properly. Also, asking us to dispose “small bits of trash” in town when we went out because they have no trash pick up unless you call the owner to arrange it in advance. They said there was a recycling container available that would be picked up after our stay. There was no such container, but we found a bucket to use. We were told not to open certain windows due to dust from the road. Having paid a cleaning fee, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to open a window, even with dust. The cabin was fairly comfortable on the main level, but the upstairs bedrooms were extremely hot, especially with the request not to open the windows for a cross breeze. There were several small fans that we utilized upstairs to move air, but the fan noise drowned out the beautiful sound of the creek behind the cabin. The front screen door was warped and didn’t close properly allowing flies and wasps indoors. Closing the main door would’ve created a sauna in the cabin as the screen door allowed a slight cross breeze. There was another note at the entry that asked us to remove our shoes upon entry. Not everyone is comfortable in bare feet, and again, we paid a cleaning fee. We would never track in mud etc, but dust perhaps. The living room was decorated nicely but there was only one small LED floor lamp which was not adequate for reading light in the evenings. We unplugged a bedside lamp from upstairs and brought it down which worked fine. Outdoors, there is ample seating with a nice dining table and chairs along with 4 Adirondack chairs. There were 4 square chair cushions for the Adirondack chairs but only 2 cushions for the dining chairs. 2 of the Adirondack chairs where very unstable and needed repair. A beautiful wrought iron gazebo and chairs along with a hammock stand was located over the food bridge by the river. Again, no cushions for the chairs, and no hammock for the hammock stand. How wonderful it would’ve been to lay in a hammock by the stream. We stayed there 4 nights and for the price including fees, I expected more.
Over priced, clean but only adequate.
Heather, thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We're glad you enjoyed this cottage overall, but apologize certain aspects of your stay fell short of your expectations. We appreciate your suggestions on areas of improvement and have shared them with the homeowners. We encourage guests to reach out with any concerns while in residence so we have the opportunity to make things right - the local contact would have been glad to help. It is standard for vacation rentals to include cleaning fees and a brief list of check-out instructions to help streamline the cleaning process for the next guests. That being said, we are sorry if that caught you off guard. The homeowners take feedback seriously and they aim for all guests to have the best possible stay at their cottage. Thank you for letting us know, and we are confident future travelers will have pleasant vacations here! Best, the Evolve Team
Quaint and quiet Creekside cottage
Cottage was very cozy and had everything we needed. I even asked for a crockpot and she had one there when we arrived. There is a television but no cable. Plenty of movies to choose from or you can bring your own! We enjoyed the quiet time and read through some of the many books they had.
