Property was just as described in the listing. Clean, well furnished with everything we needed; nice view, great solitude. The property manager was helpful and responsive. Yes the drive is steep and you'll need 4WD or AWD, but with our AWD vehicle it was no big deal. We enjoyed the fire pit, and there are several places in town to buy firewood. Town & grocery store (Ingles) are not far - plan for about 23 mins more because of windy country roads, than pure distance. I think the bottom line in reviews like this: "Would you stay there again?" In my case, the answer is definitely yes.
Good and bad
We did not see that 4 wheel drive was needed until after confirmation was sent at which time it was to late do to no refund. It stated that two vehicles could park at the cabin I would beg to differ as it was a tight squeeze to get a suburban turned around, had there been two trucks up there we would have had to back down the mountain. The cleanliness was questionable, we found dirty cups and more put up in the kitchen for use as well as no lids for any pots or pans in the cabin along with the linens smelling stale and/or unclean. The hall shower was not usable as there was no lever to redirect water from the bath to the shower head. There were no cleaning supplies provided for periodic cleaning during the stay. In the book left in the cabin it stated that minimal toilet paper, paper towels (one roll) and garbage bags (3) were provided and if more were needed that we would have to purchase more. This was not disclosed in the listing. We had originally planned on 10 people staying and while there was sleeping room for that number it would have been tight to all be indoors together at one time in the common areas. I feel like the pictures were misleading about the size of the cabin. I would not recommend this cabin for people with small children, we have a energetic 3 year and due to the steep drop off the mountain she was limited on what she could do outside. The views were beautiful and lucky not came that were planned for so we were comfortable. Just a few minor changes to the accommodations as well as the description online would be beneficial. I think that the importance for 4 wheel drive should be the first line of the listing as well as the limited space for children outside to play safely.
Katherine, we're sorry your stay fell short of your expectations. We do note in the first sentence of the listing that 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is necessary. This information is available to guests prior to making a reservation to ensure you are properly prepared. Additionally, we can confirm the cabin is professionally cleaned and stocked before every check-in and as evident in other reviews, past guests have never had these types of concerns before. The owner aims for all guests to be completely satisfied during their stay and we are confident future guests will have exceptional stays! Best, the Evolve Team
Very nice. Good value
Great cabin ambience while providing electronic links to the world. Good location to attractions. Great peaceful isolation. Fresh mountain air. Huge ever changing view of valley and sky is better than watching plays, movies, or TV.
Very important; the INITIAL listing should HIGHLIGHT the last 1/4 mile STEEP and TWISTING GRAVEL ROAD that takes a little getting used to, recommending a moderate to high degree of all teraign skill and of automotmobile traction capability, which during our advanced reservation period of greater than five months we were not informed until a week prior to arrival. We switched our transport choice to our F-350 dully 4x4, locked our hubs, and climbed slow and steady just fine. A front wheel drive van made it by taking all weight out of the back half and keeping up relatively rapid momentum. We loved our stay. “Thanks” to everyone!

We all loved staying here! The porch was peaceful and the views of the mountains were beautiful. The House was clean and there was plenty of space for our family of 6. The kids have already requested to come back!
Beautiful but your car must have 4 wheel drive!
Beautiful views from the restful cabin but....nearly impossible to drive up to.
As others stated the gravel driveway is very long and steep and could not make it up. You must have a good 4 wheel drive to get up to the cabin. Both cars in our group had to park at the bottom of the driveway and we hiked our way up and down the hill with all of our stuff, including children and groceries.
As the last reviewer stated: This was not mentioned in any of the descriptions of the cabin EXCEPT on the check-in email which we received a couple of days prior to our arrival, which said "4 wheel drive is required to make it up the driveway". I agree that this should be mentioned in the description of the cabin up front. I personally was pretty upset at first and was worried what might happen if it rain and we couldn't get our cars out.
That said the beauty of the place did win me over. I only suggest going if you plan on rarely if never leaving during your stay.
