Lovely weekend by the Creek!
We had a great experience at this house. Very comfortable, amazing location. Hope to return.
Needs a good cleaning.
The house was very cluttered and not clean. There was so much extra furniture in the family room, that you couldn't walk through. Dirty corners, carpets, towels... The place needs a good deep clean. On the plus side, it's right on the river which was lovely.
Linda, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed this home's location and we hope you had an enjoyable stay overall! We're sorry that the cleanliness of the home was not up to your standards. The homeowner would like to note that they are working diligently with their cleaner to ensure that the issue does not recur for future guests. Additionally, because of your request for an early check-in, it's possible that the cleaners did not do their absolute best job. In the future, the owner will make sure that the house can meet their cleanliness standards before accepting a request for early check-in. The owner is also happy to report that they have updated the home with new linens, towels, dishes, and cookware as they feel this will further enhance the comfortability of their guests. This homeowner truly goes above and beyond for their guests, and we are confident future guests will have exceptional stays! Best, the Evolve Team
Nice location but could be cleaner
This house is a great size and in a beautiful location right by the river. It had been cleaned before we arrived, however there was a fair amount of dust on the furniture and the linens were very old and could use a refresh. Also the listing advertises the property as 6 bedrooms, but you have to read the detail to see that the 6th bedroom is actually in separate standalone building and costs extra. The standalone building does not have a bathroom, which I didn't think was very clear in the listing.
Dirty and outdated
This property is in an ideal location but it felt dirty. It needs a complete remodel including paint, new linens, new furniture and new kitchen appliances and tableware (mismatched silverware and chipped plates and bowls). There was too much furniture. It lined every wall, there was a table on a table, and one tv had 3 DVD players that only one worked. The remotes had no batteries or dead batteries. It also needs a deep clean: drawers were dirty with food debris and hair, ceiling fans were covered in dust, rugs were old, outside edges of carpet had dead bugs, hair, and outdoor debris. Therefore this property was extremely over priced.
Beth, we're so glad you enjoyed the home's ideal location, but are sorry that other aspects of your stay fell short. We can confirm the homeowner has purchased new dishware and silverware since your stay. Additionally, we accurately represent the furniture in the cabin in the photos on the listing to guests have an idea of what to expect. The property manager is working to ensure everything is working properly with the TVs, DVD players, and remotes and will make changes as necessary. They will also have the cabin deep cleaned to ensure future guests don't experience these cleanliness issues. We appreciate you sharing your feedback and hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
Would not recommend!
Sent emails on questions we had before our trip to Jennifer at the cleaning company and Evolve and never got any responses. Tried to contact Jennifer and Evolve when we arrived Sunday nite because we could not get door locked - had to contact our relative out there who came and found out information on the deadbolt lock and showed us how to use it. Had no idea how to use all the different remotes for TV, etc., no instructions anywhere so basically could not use TV. Many light bulbs were burned out, water hardly ran in kitchen sink and upstairs shower. Tried to reach Jennifer as we could not get dumpster open for garbage as it was locked - left message - finally heard next day but by that time Mark, one of the owners, had come by because he did not know anyone was staying there (was not on calendar) and he opened up the dumpster for us so we could put our garbage in it. Told him about all the problems we were having. There should should have been some type of "Welcome" information for new renters. Exterior lawn should have been trimmed and some mowing done down by creek - not a very good first impression. For the amount of money we paid, this should have been a lot higher class than what it was!
Char, thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for the communication and maintenance issues you faced during your stay. Since your visit, this owner, Mark, has taken over as the primary guest contact so that he can ensure all guests' needs are immediately tended to. He strives to provide all of his guests with a 5-star experience and is more than happy to address any issues or concerns right away so that guests can enjoy their time at the property. We truly appreciate your feedback and we're confident these issues have been completely resolved and will not recur for future travelers. Best, the Evolve Team
Great place for family. There were 11 of us (ages 11 to 73). The games were especially good since it rained two days!
