    Perfect Get-Away Cabin

    Reviewed by: Pat S. on


    This little lake cabin delivered exactly the stay we were hoping for! It was immaculate, comfy, cozy (not fussy and pretentious), and provided all of the necessities plus a few surprises. We had a couple of initial questions to which the Owner/Mgr responded promptly. The cabins are close, but the area is quiet with the only noise coming from the birds singing in the woods. The close proximity to the lake (~1 block) allowed for early morning walks to the water with coffee in hand and picnics in the evening. For restaurants, concerts, shops, groceries, it is about a 10-15 minute trip to Clear Lake. Without a doubt, we would stay here again!

    Perfect accommodations

    We are a family band from Wisconsin. We performed in Minneapolis on the Thursday, arrived at the rental early Friday morning. We slept and went to our performance in Nebraska on Friday. We arrived back at the rental early Saturday morning. We slept and checked out and headed to our show in Minneapolis on Saturday. The rental near Clear Lake Iowa allowed us to get the maximum amount of sleep. Better than motels and considerably more economical. Great accommodation.

    Property could use some updating.

    Reviewed by: Scott O. on


    The cabin was run down. Cupboard doors didn't shut, bathroom closet would not shut. In past cabins they are cleaned very well and this was not so clean. Dusty and the coffee pot was on when we checked in under a cover. There was a small amount of mold in the shower area. In the bar patio area there were cards all in a mess and coasters. It was just not clean. We also had to call on Friday night because there was no water. The owner took care of the problem immediately. It was a bit overpriced for what was offered in my opinion.

    Manager's Response:
    Scott, we're sorry your stay didn't meet your expectations. We take feedback seriously and this cabin has not received a complaint in the two years the homeowners have been renting. The homeowners are aware of your comments and have provided insight on their property. First, they are working to fix the latch on the bathroom closet door. Your comments have been shared with the cleaning company so we can ensure the isolated scenario you came across can be prevented for future guests. In regards to the water on Friday night, we regret this happened, as nothing like this has occurred in the 6 years the homeowners have lived in this area. We hope the homeowner's immediate assistance helped to alleviate some of the frustrations. There is a well system shared by 10 cabins and the homeowner had the repairman come out that night to fix the pressure switch which went out as quickly as possible. Lastly, they work hard to ensure all guests who come to visit have the optimal stay. We are confident this home will continue to host satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

    This was a lovely space for our family to enjoy some quiet time away from the city. Kitchen and utensils were elaborate enough for me to prepare our turkey and thanksgiving fixings. Sleeping arrangements were lovely and sitting room was key in our stay. The weather even permitted walks near the lake. Ted made sure we were comfortable, and left helpful instructions; the neighbors Sam and Deb could be called upon (if needed), but mostly left us to enjoy our time . Thank you :)

    Reviewed by: Barb S. on


    The property was in proximity to everything we wanted to do: bike trail, water, ice cream, and groceries. The neighbors were friendly and it was quiet and private. We had a fire pit we used nighty plus a full kitchen. Ted was gracious upon our arrival and showed us around. We loved the little extras left for our comfort. We will definitely use this property in the future.
