Nice get away
We had a good time at the cabin, kids loved it!
Our family of 3 loved the location of this cabin. It was close enough for dinner delivery at night but secluded enough to enjoy the wildlife and mountains. The cabin was extremely clean and hosts were quick to respond with any needs. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Breckenridge area.
We stayed at this cabin on June 15th and was impressed with how well the cabin was equipped with whatever you may need, the kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable, the only complaint that I would have is that the deck is very much in need of replacement and I was told that was supposed to have been replaced in May but with all of the snow fall they have not been able to get it done but other than that I would definitely recommend this cabin.
Great Rustic Cabin for Family Fun
There was some trash around the property as well as snow. Our last night there we discovered why there is some trash thrown around. The locked and very heavy garbage can was moved 6+ feet away from it's original location. Clearly local wildlife are serious about dumpster diving!! Otherwise we enjoyed the property and the cabin. It was ideal for our family of 5. The kids loved having their own space and easy access to the hot tub. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of my kids being downstairs!!
Beautiful and cozy cabin
I will start off with a few cons: upon arriving to the cabin, the code for the lock box did not work for the lock box on the downstairs door. We were unaware there was a second lock box upstairs on the deck. We called evolve and the owner quickly got back to us to resolve this issue. There was also a pile of garbage outside that an animal had gotten into that the cleaning company was supposed to pick up before we checked in. Again, the owner resolved this and had the cleaning company come the next day to pick up the garbage.
The hot tub was one of the reasons we booked this cabin, it functioned perfectly and the cover was easy to manage. The wooden steps were not attached to the ground or the hot tub and moved/rocked while on them which wouldn't be bad but they were covered in a thick layer of ice which made it difficult. I'm not sure if there is a good solution to this since its outside in the elements (under the deck). Also, there were several wads of paper towel or tissue in the hot tub we cleaned out upon first use.
It was a blessing and a curse that there was roughly 3 feet of snow over 3 days during our stay. We had a 4 wheel drive vehicle and had no issue getting up the road to the cabin, however the driveway is pretty long and was not maintained. There were 2 shovels and a small bucket of ice but we would've had to stay in and shovel every hour to keep up with it. That being said, we were only able to park in the driveway during our first day there. We shoveled enough to get the truck off the road into the very end of the driveway.
PROS: The kitchen has everything you may need, the beds were comfortable, the electric fireplace heats up the living room quickly and was so cozy. We used the grill on the deck to make dinner one night. Having a hot tub after a day on the mountain was great. 15min drive from the slopes, 10min to main street for lots of food, drinks and shopping. The cabin was clean, and laundry available. There were lots of board games/video games and things to keep you entertained on a night in.
Miranda, we're glad you enjoyed your stay overall! The homeowner would like to pass along the following message:
"Miranda, we very much appreciate your review and are pleased that you enjoyed our cozy cabin.
You are correct; the epic snow that we received during your stay was both a blessing and a curse. Great snow for skiing, but terrible for service providers - namely the cleaners and snow plow guy. We've had the same snowplow provider for 15 years, but during your stay and Breck's record snowfall he quit. Before each rental, I reach out to the cleaners and snow plow guy to ensure the house is ready. After several unreturned calls and emails, our snow plow provider said he could not get to the house, and he quit. He just up and quit; he said there was too much snow. Imagine that - too much snow for the snow plow guy. I believe he quit on the last day of your stay. It took me 2-3 days to engage another plow provider. Our cleaning professionals do an excellent job for us, but due to the snowfall, the cleaners were delayed by a day getting back up to the house to pick up the trash. This was unfortunate, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
With respect to the paper towels in the hot tub, I have no idea why the previous renters would have paper towels in the hot tub. It makes no sense. Unfortunately, not all renters treat our home as they would treat their own. Going forward, the cleaners will be sure to lift the cover of the tub during the cleaning process to ensure the tub is ready for the next renter.
We were unaware that the steps into the hot tub were an issue. This has now been resolved.
Thank you again for the feedback. We want every renter's experience to be positive!"
Best, the Evolve Team
Beautiful, comfortable house with AMAZING views and accommodating hosts
The cabin is so cozy and comfortable. There are TV’s, DVD’s, games down stairs, plenty of room for everybody. The outside was overall my favorite aspect. The house is in the woods with trees and snow surrounding you, in the morning we woke up to a mom moose and baby moose and at night we sat in the hot tub and enjoyed the amazing scenery. Also, it is very close to town and there is Uber access. One thing that I would recommend is bringing drinking water because there was mineral build up in the water (which was fine, unless you’re picky) and you most DEFINITELY have to have 4 wheel drive to access the property. Overall, we will always come back to this property and it was definitely a 10/10 without hesitation.
