Just as listed!
We stayed at this cabin over Labor Day weekend and found it to be exactly as listed! It's dated but spotlessly clean and everything is in working order. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow us to spend any time in the water but the lakefront is really nice and it would be a great place to hang out if we had better weather. We had 4 adults and two dogs, I wouldn't have wanted to add many more people, as it is not a huge place. The outdoor space is great, the deck is giant and there is always a portion that is in the sun. The grill is great, nice and new. No complaints would rent again.
Perfect Retreat! Beautiful Lake!
We had a low key girls weekend here and it was a blast. Everything you could need, the lake is clear and perfect for swimming. Private beach was so nice. Great communication with the manager. Can’t recommend enough, we will be back!
Fantastic Beach, Mediocre Cabin
The beach was great, lots of sand and a clear, clean lake to swim in. A bonfire on the beach in the evening makes for a great view of the sunset.
The stairs going down the very steep hill to the beach are loose, we had someone step on a loose cement block and take a tumble. There was no warning of this.
The cabin had lots of bugs inside after sunset hours, and even a bat was flying around in the living room during the afternoon....
The online posting explained that the cabin had wireless internet, TV, and a DVD player - which was all false! The internet didn't work, the TV only got 1 channel, and the DVD player was broken. Very disappointing for us as we wanted to relax and watch a movie.
The cabin is old and rundown, nothing fancy. You're booking this cabin for the beach and firepit on the shore, not for the cabin itself.
I hope they can get the electronics working for the next group!
Danielle, we're sorry to hear your stay fell short of your expectations. The has owner resolved the Wifi issue, as it only required a quick restart of the router. This also fixed the cable issue as they are connected. The owners can personally confirm that the DVD player is in proper working condition as well. However, we're sorry if you experienced any operational difficulties. They also suggest keeping doors closed to keep out any pests. The homeowner wishes you would have reached out while you were in residence with any concerns, so they could have resolved them promptly for a most comfortable stay. As evidenced by past reviews, we're confident this home will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team
Nice Getaway- Could use maintenance
We stayed with our children at the cabin. We were looking for a place that we could pull up to and not leave until check out. For the most part, this provided that. Our first night we planned an easy dinner on the grill, except when we went to use it the tank was empty. We never did fill it since we knew it wouldn't be worth the amount of money we'd put into it- plus another trip to find somewhere to fill it.
The home was nice. It had everything we needed, including lots of silverware which was nice. Some of the utensils could use some upgrading. If we went back, I'd bring my own can opener and peeler. The oven set the smoke detector off every time we cooked, even though there was no smoke. The bathrooms and bedrooms were nice and clean. The beds were pretty hard though. The kitchen floor was pretty dirty and had chunks of food left from someone before us. Other than that, it was clean. It seemed like the kitchen got cleaned well but they forgot the floor. I vacuumed dead ladybugs and dust from the window sills so my 1 year old could sit and look out the big windows- she loved it. The windows were nice to have. The patio door didn't open well and the door handle was broke so we didn't use it. A functioning door would be nice since it's what faces the lake. But the other side door worked just fine for us. The toilet seat was also broke on the main floor when we arrived but it still functioned just fine.
The lake was nice. The sandy beach area was great for our kids to play and they spent all their time there. However, the trees were overgrown walking down to the lake. We had brought some bigger inflatables and were worried they'd pop hauling them down there from the trees. The stone blocks that lead down to the lake were also really wobbly. Our kids fell a few times and I almost dropped our 1 year old the first time I went down not realizing they were loose and wobbly.
Overall, we'd stay here again with some maintenance. The deck had potential but the trees kind of felt like they took over the deck so we didn't use it. If the home were priced a little lower, I would have given it 5 stars. I'm comparing it to other homes I've rented for a similar price. With the maintenance, I'd pay $230/night at 5 stars.
The owner checked in a few times and made sure we had everything we needed to get in. He seemed extremely friendly. You can tell that he takes great pride in his lake home.
Thanks for allowing us to use your lake home for our family vacation!
The sandy beach is amazing and a short walk. Ample seating, especially on the deck. The lake had super clear water and was very quiet. Would definitely book again!

The lake and house were nice. The sunset and wildlife were fun to hear. The house needs a new screen door, needs cleaning and maintenance. Strongly suggest trimming trees on driveways and path to the lake. Vehicles were getting scratched and there was a huge branch across the road and had to drive around. In general it was relaxing once you got over the spiders and ants.
