Beautiful lake, accommodations underwhelming
The location of the cabins is beautiful and the scenery, pristine nature, and swimmable lake were all highlights of the stay. However, I had to send multiple messages and eventually reach out to the property website to get a response about check-in. The hosts did accommodate a late check-in which was welcome but the mattresses were old and uncomfortable, the floors unswept, cobwebs in the windows, and general uncleanliness. The smoke detector went off repeatedly in the kitchen when only cooking eggs, and there wasn't even cooking oil provided to facilitate cooking. The property has huge potential but is not being cared for in a manner that I would recommend others paying for at the moment.
Stephanie, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed this cabin's beautiful scenery and location! However, we're disheartened to hear that some aspects of your stay were less than pleasing. The homeowner has very high standards for their property, and they are sorry that cleanliness issues impacted your stay. Also, mattress comfort is extremely subjective, but we're sorry if the mattresses in this cabin were not to your liking. As is standard with vacation rentals, this cabin provides the industry standard amount of kitchen essentials, and we regret if you found that not to be enough for your stay. We wish you the best of luck in your future travels! Best, the Evolve Team
Rustic is the right word!
This location is indeed remote. If you are looking to go out to dinner or find "entertainment" of any kind, prepare for a 45 to 60 minute drive. The property and cabin are adequate. Some simple maintenance like cutting the grass, neatening up the outside shared spaces and covering exposed wires in the cabin would go a long way in making a better overall impression. Linens and kitchen items are provided, though certainly not luxurious. Everything was a bit of a dish-mash. Skylights and windows needed cleaning -- lots of spider webs in the skylights and the front windows for the view of the lake were old and cloudy. The property owners were very personable and use of water toys was available. They even offered to take us on a boat tour of the lake. The lake itself is the winner for this property. Stinson Lake is beautiful, clean and enjoyable to float on.
Suzanne, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We do note the location of the cabin in the listing so guests can ensure it meets their needs before booking. The homeowner is working diligently to ensure the issues with the grass, wires, and skylights are promptly resolved. Thanks again and we hope you'll stay with us again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
Outdated, very little privacy
The owners shared their racist political views with us, unnecessarily. Wires sticking out of walls. No soap, no coffee, zero basics for renter's use. Strongly not-recommended
Roham, we're sorry your experience fell short and you felt uncomfortable with your conversation with the homeowner. We've shared your comments with them and we can confirm that wasn't their intention. They aim to provide five-star hospitality for their guests and we are confident future guests will have exceptional stays! Best, the Evolve Team
The cabin was welcoming and cozy, right on a beautiful lake, surrounded by a stunning mountain view. It could not have been a more perfect weekend. Wonderful hospitality, attractions within a reasonable distance. We will absolutely return. Miss it already!
