Evolve Vacation Rental
- English, French, German, Spanish
Cabin in the Woods
This was a great house with all the amenities. The trail is just behind the house and is a great hike. We wanted to unwind and get away from the crowds and this was perfect. The dogs loved it! The backyard is fenced and they are allowed on the trail so it was perfect. Our questions were answered very quickly and we were made to feel welcome. Loved this place!
A great Arnold vacation!
The only reason this home gets 4 out of 5 stars is because the Evolve experience is not always the best (multiple $ charges because for whatever reason they can't make it all one charge, you have to call THEM because they'll only send emails (telling you to call them? okay?) and there are so many emails). On top of that my one and only attempt to communicate with the "guest contact" went unanswered.
That aside, this is one of the best VRBO homes we've stayed at and we stay at VRBO homes at least twice a year. The main living areas are really amazing- the kitchen, the dining room and living room are all top notch and have amazing equipment. The TV said "no signal" and there were water logged directions but despite them we couldn't make it work. This wasn't a big deal to us.
The king size bed in the master was really comfortable (and I rarely say that about VRBO beds because my lower back issues make me a bed snob) but the frame was noisy. The queen sized bed in the next bedroom seemed comfortable and our daughter enjoyed having all the space to herself. We did not utilize the twin trundles at all as we used that bedroom for the pak'n'play for our baby to sleep in- the room was a perfect fit for that as it was a very small room. The door to the twin room does not shut all the way but thankfully there is a door across the way to close to block out the main living area noises and lights.
At the last minute we decided to not take our dogs along, but for those that are interested, there is a fenced in rear yard (which is a great size!). It is not connected to the house, so you have to go out the front door, down the steps, around the corner to the back and open the gate to the backyard. It can be really hard to find vacation rentals that allow dogs and this house is well maintained so we appreciated that we could have brought them along.
If anyone is a smoothie for breakfast junkie like I am there is a blender in the kitchen- a true, real blender! I wish I would have known beforehand or I would have planned and brought stuff for smoothies.
The house is in a great location within 20 minutes of everything we love to do in the area, so it was perfect. It appeared that one or perhaps both of the owners are first responders and I really loved that we were in some (minimal) way supporting a first responder by renting their home.
Thanks for having us, we'd definitely stay again!
Our new go-to place in Arnold!
We loved the layout of the kitchen, dining area, family room. It was open and spacious and perfect for our group, and our dog!
The proximity to the grocery store, gas, Snowshoe Brewing is excellent.
We look forward to our next stay here!!!!
What an amazing home!
What an awesome property! It's the perfect location to everything - and so easy! The house has one of the best kitchens ever - and we made some amazing meals! I've been going to Arnold/Bear Valley for YEARS and this is the first time I've seen this much snow in Arnold! The house was perfect for us (2 adults, 3 kids and a dog)! It's comfortable and very clean! I apologize, but you will find some tennis balls when the snow melts!! Our dog lost a few!! Thank you again - we will be back!!
Wonderful New Year's Eve Getaway!
Our family of four absolutely LOVED this beautiful Arnold home! It was the perfect backdrop to our quiet New Year's Eve holiday watching Netflix movies, playing cards, and making family memories. The home was exactly as pictured and was immaculately clean on our arrival. The location is great with the Arnold Rim Trail just behind the house for walking our dog. We will most definitely be back for another family stay!
Fun in Winter
It was a cute house that was well equipped. We only had to go 20 minutes east to find a bunch of snow to play in. The kitchen was modern and comfortable. We were a little disappointed we couldn't use the wood burning stoves. That was one of the reasons I picked it. We have one at home and use it all the time. Also if anyone is watching TV it sounds very loud in the master bedroom.
Overall, we had a very good time. Thanks!
