Great Vacation Location!
A great girls getaway weekend. The townhouse was very clean and accommodated us very nicely. I'd revisit and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
Beautiful surroundings and perfect for our gathering
We had a wonderful time in Utica. I would recommend staying here if you have a larger family and would all like to be together. The unit was clean and well kept. I had read previous reviews and was prepared for the lack of comforters for the pull out beds and the refrigerator not closing properly. The only other suggestion is to have more garbage bags available.
Stay was great, beds were amazing. Had a wonderful time. Will come back!
Only problem / complaint. The reason for a 3 star rating. The batteries went dead in a smoke alarm at 3 in the morning. Took about 2 hours to get some one out to fix it, and another half hour once he got here.
Richard, Thank you for letting us know about your experience, and we’re glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall. We do apologize for the untimely issue with the smoke alarms, and we have shared your feedback with the homeowner so they may make the necessary adjustments to ensure it doesn’t recur for future guests! Thanks for the feedback, and we hope to have you return to this home for an exceptional vacation experience. Best, The Evolve Team
Very nice place.
Plenty of bathrooms, lots of room for grandkids to play. Only bad thing was that the refrigerator door didn't close well. It had been left open when we got there. Took along time to get cold. Had to push in with foot to get to close. Also no towels for drying dishes.
Nice and Roomy
This townhome was beautiful, spacious and roomy for our huge group. We were a group of 17. We were there to explore Starved Rock and the proximity to our destination was perfect. Check-in process was super easy. There were a few issues with this property during our stay though. The toilet on the main floor wasn't working properly when we got there. We called to get it addressed but it was never addressed. My elderly mother took it upon herself to get it to flush again after a full day of notification and was told it wasn't going to get fixed during our stay. Noone even came by to look at it because there appearantly was a history of issues with it. This property was advertised to have beddings for 18 but there were no comforters for those who were sleeping on the pullout sofas. All they had were bedsheets and pillows. Again, we called and were told someone would drop off three comforters but that didn't happen either. The third issue we had were the basement jacuzzi. After a long day of hiking, some of us wanted to soak up but we couldn't get that jacuzzi to operate. Fortunately, the one upstairs was working and some of us were able to utilize it but not everyone who wanted to soak could.
Though we had some issues with the property, Cindy whom we communicated with, was nice and easy to talk to. She was out of town and communicated through her handyman to address our issues and unfortunately nothing was addressed during our stay. It could have been better but we still love the beautiful place and would still return.
Perfect family getaway
We were looking for a great getaway for our extended family, 10 in all, and your cabin was perfect. We had plenty of space to eat and play games together. It also had spacious sleeping quarters for all of us. This was a memorable vacation.
