Enjoyed the lake
We spend a nice weekend in the Stinson Lake area. The owner was there to meet us when we arrive. He was nice and also offered to give us a tour on his boat which was awesome! Kayaks and canoe were great to enjoy the lake as well. Small cabin but the kitchen is well equipped and sofas are confortables.
Thing to know before booking that house is that there is a road between the house and the lake - not suitable if you have kids running around. Also as mentioned online some people are sharing the same yard as there is another renting house. We were not bothering by them as they didn't use the yard at all.
The yard could be better maintained and the bathroom would need some upgrades. Pictures of inside the house are pretty accurate (less light though)- there is also a dining table in the kitchen/living room which is great.
Enjoyed our weekend.
Pros: Hosts were very friendly and very accommodating to us. Boats are available and the lake is beautiful. Surrounded by mountains, it is breathtaking. Easy to find. Cabin is rustic, but other than the fact that there is a table and chair in the main room, making it smaller than it seems in the pictures, it is just like they stated.
Hosts have only had property for less than 2 years and are in process of making thing better. Mattresses and pillows on beds could definitely be replaced. Some cleanring up around the property and this will be a gorgeous place.
The property was old and tired
The pictures shown on the website do not reflect the run down,messy look of the actual property. We were told upon arrival that the heat did not work but that it would not matter,on Thursday night it was only 50 degrees we could have used some heat. There was no hot water until the owner fixed it then it was only lukewarm. The smoke detector was not working because it was shoved under the sink with no battery, not a good idea when there is only one way out of the cottage. I would not recomend that any one rent this place.
John, we're sorry your stay didn't meet your expectations. Our listings are carefully built to reflect our properties in an accurate light and we can confirm the photos of this property reflect that this is a summer cottage so guests know what to expect. The heater was found to have cracked parts when inspected by the gas company and parts were on order during your stay. We appreciate that you reached out to the homeowner so they could promptly resolve the hot water issue. They ensure the cottage is well-maintained and will continue to make updates this Fall. Thank you for letting us know and for giving us the means to create five-star experiences moving forward. Best, the Evolve Team
