3/5 Okay

Needs cleaning
Cute property with nice views and very close to the lake. Very strong musty odors. The refrigerator/freezer smelled very bad and was not at all clean. Dishwasher does not work and there was an old smelly dish scrubber by the sink. So I am sure the dishes provided were not all that clean. As stated NO linens are provided, this includes paper towels so make sure if you stay you bring items to clean and sanitize the dishes before using.

5/5 Excellent

I stayed here with my husband, sister and friend the end of August 2021 and had a great time. Unless the listing was updated recently guests should know that there are 3 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. Our contact Maria was a great help and answered all of our questions prior and during our stay. The pool was refreshing and the views from the backyard were beautiful. We would definitely stay at this rental again.

Nice house but inaccurate description
The house is actually pretty nice. We loved the fish and plants. The reading room was comfortable and quiet. Check in was easy. The pool was clean and refreshing. Beds were super comfy. Everything but the kitchen was very clean. The kitchen does have lots of utensils, dishes and cookware. It just needs a good cleaning. The views of the mountains and the stars at night were beautiful. That being said, there are some things in the listing that are simply not true. The bedroom tv that is mentioned and pictured is not there. A drip coffee maker and a crockpot are listed for the kitchen. Neither is there and we actually brought coffee to brew and a crockpot meal to make based on those items specifically being listed. There was a Keurig maker and coffee so it was fine but we really prefer real coffee so a bit disappointing to have planned for it. The email received right before our trip informed us that the dishwasher was broken and we couldn't use it. With 3 kids and 2 adults to have to hand wash dishes after every meal REALLY put a damper on our vacation. If we'd known about the dishwasher, we never would have booked. Who wants to wash dishes all day on vacation? Also when we tried to log in to the wifi, we got a screen that said the password had to be reset. We contacted Evolve right way to resolve it. They still, a week later, haven't responded. We own two businesses so it was important to be connected as we had no cell service in the area. You do have to bring all of your own towels and linens. There are actually three queen beds and rooms to sleep (two bedrooms with queen beds upstairs and one queen bed downstairs) Again the listing needs to be updated as it leads you to believe there are only two beds. There are pillows and bedspreads on each bed. We did overall enjoy the house and the pool. Not having a dishwasher or wifi and then being ignored by Evolve was not cool so....sorry but it had to be mentioned for others to be aware. If you have any issues, you may get no resolution.
