In my 1st contact with the rental company I stated that the four of us will be riding our motorcycles to the property for our annual ride to the mountains. A good response to my initial inquiry would’ve been to inform me that the property is only accessible by a dirt and gravel 1 lane road that is a bit treacherous for a motorcycle. We also were not told until we got there that we were responsible for taking any trash we created to the dump a few miles down the road, this also would’ve been nice to know before hand since we all rode motorcycles.
After receiving the instructions on how we were expected to leave the property a couple things were disappointing upon arrival. The grill we were told to clean if used was filthy and the lid was barely holding on by a thread. It needs to be replaced, we were afraid to use it.
The deck on the back of the property where we hung out at night was nice but the furniture out there was filthy. Would’ve been nice if it was hosed off or wiped down before we got there. There isn’t cable or satellite at the property, the tv reception is dependent on an antenna. I didn’t see that in the original description of the property, I may have missed that.
One of the reasons I picked this property for our annual trip was that it has a foosball table and dart board that the four of us could relax and play with after a long day of riding, well, the foosball table is on its last leg and we were afraid it would collapse as we were playing it. We decided to play darts instead, sigh, but the tips on all but one of the darts were broken and couldn’t be used to play.
It was nice having the garage to put the bikes in at night as opposed to leaving them outside.
Overall we give this property an average rating. Since the game room was highlighted in the pictures we really expect that the games be playable. The cabin is in decent shape but part of the deck and the front door overhang is in need of repair. We would not stay here again and wouldn’t recommend to anyone expecting to use any of the items I spoke of above.
Lee, the homeowner would like to pass along the following message:
"Thank you for staying at our cabin in the mountains. I'm sorry for the disappointment with the game room. There should have been a container with lots of extra darts and tips for the dart board, as well as balls for the foosball table. It must have been accidentally removed, but I will provide more. I was unaware that the foosball table was having issues, but will get it repaired and braced on my next trip up in two weeks. Although we ask that the trash be taken to the dump site, we understand that is not always possible (primarily in the case with people on motorcycles). We will address that issue in the welcome email that it will not be required for those on motorcycles. The grill was only a couple years old but I will inspect for replacement and proper cleaning in the future. We aim to provide excellent guest experiences and I want to thank you for bringing these items to our attention so they can be corrected."

4 Guys and Cars - It Worked!
The location for this cabin was great, very close to Fontana Village and the Dragon. If you coming down here to zip around, this location is great. The cabin itself has 2 floors, and 5 bedrooms, 2 up and 3 down. The cabin was very clean, but was looking tired. For the 4 guys it was just fine for sleeping. The Living Room has a nice set up with Lazy boy couches, TV bunch of channels and really good wifi as well. Fridge worked great keeping the beer nice and cold, as did the A/C for cooling down the cabin. There is a gravel driveway, but our lowered cars did not have a problem, not too steep, it was manageable. Might stay here again.
Rustic secluded mountain home
The mountain house was cozy and very homey. However, the deck is very scary in places and should be looked at. It needs a little updating but it was still perfect for what we needed. The views were amazing and my group loved that it had everything we needed.
Kelsey, we're glad you enjoyed the amazing views from the home! We appreciate your suggestions for areas of improvement and have informed the homeowner. They will inspect the deck and make changes as necessary. We hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
We had a great stay. Cabin had everything we needed. Loved the gas fireplace, perfect!
We had an amazing weekend. Cabin had everything that we needed. Especially pleased to have the garage to keep the motorcycles dry. The gas fireplace was enjoyed nearly nonstop. Doug and Judy were both very helpful and prompt to respond to our questions.
A good time at this property
This cabin provided a great cost-benefit. The cost reflects what you get: a rustic cabin experience with amazing views and central location at Nantahala forest. We were in a group of 11 people including 3 children and overall we had a good time. Would return!
Very cozy home!
Going up to the house is very scary especially at night. The house itself is very nice.
Reina, we love hearing you had a pleasant stay overall. Due to the home's secluded location, the road leading up to the property is not paved. However, we don't foresee this being an issue for future guests. Thanks for your feedback and we look forward to hosting you again! Best, the Evolve Team
