    Nice cabin

    Reviewed by: Shaquana P. on

    Comment:

    If you like Christmas year round this is the cabin for you. It was convienently located to Pigeon forge and Gaitlinburg. Nice wrap around porch & quiet community with many of the amenities of home. The road to the community is narrow and the driveway was off of a sharp turn into a incline driveway-proceed with caution!The home had plenty of room for my family parents , siblings & grandchildren (5 families). Driveway easily fits 4-5 cars even with the incline. My only feedback is for the owner to do a deep cleaning as the year round Christmas theme shows a lot of dust. In addition the upstairs bathroom did not seem as well maintained as the rest of the home other bathrooms. The turn over may have been too quick as we did find candy wrappers around the home from the previous guess. However my family always does a light cleaning to feel comfortable away.

    Overall the property is good. However the cleaning service is not doing a good job. I closed the door of my bedroom to find a pair of men's underwear in the corner. Also we dropped some things under the bed and saw a dead lizard and other layers of dirt. The shrubbery needs to be trimmed as well. Navigating the driveway and walkways was difficult because the bushes are so overgrown. The other issue we had was a drainage pipe that smelled like raw sewage. If those issues were cleared up the cabin would be a great place. The neighborhood is convenient and the space of the cabin is roomy.

    Spent a short stay and it was very relaxing. It was too hot for us to enjoythe hot tub, but everything else was great. Property manager was veryresponsive and easy to talk to. The only negative I could possibly say isthat it needs more furniture on the deck. For as many as it could sleepthere were only 5 chairs on the deck. Loved our stay and would recommend itto others anytime.

    Fabulous cabin with plenty of room . Very well equipped in the kitchen and other areas. Even had plenty of super plush towels. The wrap-around porch was perfect for hanging out with a crowd and everything was clean and welcoming when we arrived. The only comment I would have is that your descriptions (or at least the check-in email) should prepare folks for the steep entrances on both sides. Little difficult for older folks or anyone with mobility issues. The evolve team made booking easy and the local contact was so helpful with my last minute questions. All around great experience, I hope to be back.

    Lovely Cabin

    Overall, we really enjoyed the cabin. We were in town for my nephew's wedding and the cabin housed my family, my mom, my sister and her husband, and another sister and her family. The pros include a beautiful cabin that is nicely decorated and convenient to Pigeon Forge. The description online is accurate as to reality. The negatives were minor overall and more irritants than anything else. The ironing board was broken, which was not convenient given we needed clothes ironed for the wedding, but we were still able to get them ironed. The clothes dryer didn't work either (either that or we couldn't figure it out, but we even YouTubed it and couldn't get it to work), the way to get into the cabin is incredibly steep and had rock pavers, some of which were loose. This was fine for all of us, except for my mom who will be turning 80 in a couple of months with bad knees. That made us all extremely nervous for her and we kept the death grip on her coming and leaving the cabin. The managing company gave us a list of check in and check out instructions. We never received the check in code, called ahead of time to get it, and they checked with the local people that check on it and confirmed what it would be. After a LONG and exhausting travel day, we arrived at the cabin and the code didn't work. Had to wait 20 minutes to get a call back from the local people for new code. Check in instructions also said there would be a welcome packet with info and WiFi password. No welcome packet and I emailed the suggested local contact for WiFi password, it took 2 days to respond. However, we did find it on a picture frame WAY sooner than our response. Also, checkout asked to put trash in trash bin and we found no bin so we had to leave multiple trash bags in the house bec we didn't want to attract bears. Cabin is awesome. The issues were more from the local company and the instructions.

    The overall feel of the cabin was very homey. It was stocked real well. We only had 2 complaints. Neither coffee maker worked. Took at 45 minutes to perk. I don't know if you check the cabins for cleanliness, but the downstairs sheets had to be washed before the beds could be slept on. You might want to check on whoever cleans. But I would recommend the cabin.

    Christmas in the Cabin

    Reviewed by: Susan B. on

    Comment:

    I booked this cabin over a year ago to stay here the week of Christmas. When I booked it there were only a few good reviews at the time, so as the year went on I became discouraged with all the negative reviews that were being left. We almost decided to cancel but gave it a try anyway. Overall, we had a pretty good experience. The one thing I was most worried about, the code not working when we arrived, did happen. We arrived slightly after the sun went down. The code didn't work and the porch was dark and couldn't see what we were doing without light from our phones. Luckily, the back door of the cabin was unlocked for whatever reason. This issue really needs to be addressed. Nobody wants to have to deal with that after travelling so long to get there. The cabin was beautiful and decorated pretty for Christmas. The steep driveway and lady bugs didn't bother us. Hot tub was in good working order and the pool table was fun and provided lots of entertainment for us. There does seem to be an issue with a drainage pipe in the backyard by the garage. It let out such a horrible smell everytime we were outside. That's a shame for such a pretty place. Overall, we didn't have any major issues but if the owners took the time to address some of the issues that keep being repeated it would be a 5 star rental for sure.

    Beautiful but...

    Reviewed by: Roxie B. on

    Comment:

    This cabin is absolutely beautiful and my family and I had a wonderful time together. However management really could improve on cleanliness.

    We all divided the cost of the cabin evenly and the first night as we were getting the living room sleeper sofa ready for bed, we quickly discovered that house keeping had not even checked it. There was food, change, socks, apple juice in a sippy cup that had leaked all over the mattress and sheets. The sheets had obviously not been cleaned so we were doing laundry at 1am. The mattress is so thin and totally broken down. We had to find additional bedding throughout the cabin to cover the apple juice leak and to make it sleepable. If you are going to advertise this place as it can sleep so many people than you may want to insure that it actually can otherwise it is false advertisement. This was totally unfair for our family to deal with. No one was available to come help us and the only thing management could offer was someone bring us clean sheets the next day, we were only there for the weekend and had already washed the sheets.

    Also multiple beds had animal fur on their sheets so we washed those as well because it looked as if they hadn’t been cleaned at all. The upstairs Elvis room had an infestation of lady bugs. Absolutely unreal to see so many lady bugs everywhere. Apparently it is against state law to spray for ladybugs. The master bedroom bathtub had thick black mold around every jet, there is no telling how long it has been since it had been cleaned. There were also several pots and pans that had food left in them.

    Other than the cleanliness the cabin is absolutely beautiful! Great location, only about 10 min drive to the main Pigeon Forge strip. We rented this cabin for our family Christmas and the decorations made it feel so homey. If I were the owner of this cabin I would be looking into getting new cleaners because the current cleaners are not doing the jobs they are being paid to do. I would also highly recommend to get a new mattress for the sleeper otherwise you need to not advertise this as a sleeping space. It looks like someone has already mentioned this in a previous post so I am shocked to find that the issue had not been corrected.

    Would I stay here again? Yes, if the above items have been resolved but how would we know?

    The cabin was lovely and comfortable, but a little crowded with furnishings and decorations. We had 3 children with us and it was great; it would have been difficult with more children. Only one kitchen towel, one packet of dish detergent and one kitchen trash bag were given...not nearly enough for a 4 night stay. When we arrived late on the night before Thanksgiving, the entry code we were given didn't work to let us in! Fortunately, we were able to get in touch with guest services to get the correct code. However, when I called later that night about another issue I had to leave a message and I did not receive a return call the remainder of our visit. Fortunately, everything worked out anyway and we really enjoyed the cabin.

The 2nd & 3rd night, a toilet upstairs leaked to the basement bedroom (quite literally on my daughters head-both nights, even after a maintenance guy came out to fix it the 2nd day. Needless to say, all three nights of our stay, we were moving sleepers to different areas. What a pain. Otherwise, it is a beautiful home.

    Manager's Response:
    Christy, thank you for your review. We're so happy that you enjoyed the beautiful location of this cabin! We apologize that the trash was left behind prior to your check-in; however, we're glad to hear that the cleaners returned as soon as they realized their mistake and took care of the issue. We're also sorry to hear that the heat was not working properly when you arrived, but it is our understanding that the homeowner sent someone out that same day to fix the unit and it was up and running for the rest of your stay. The homeowner has investigated the leak in the downstairs bedroom and tightened the toilet on the floor above. It was checked again after your departure and they discovered that the problem was from the shower. If the shower curtain is not fully closed, water tends to pool on the floor and it can drip through to the next level. Since your stay, that entire section of floor has been resealed with silicone to prevent this from happening in the future. This homeowner goes above and beyond to provide guests with a 5-star stay, and we look forward to hosting many more happy travelers in this lovely cabin. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team

    It was everything as described. 2 things i had a problem with though. We arrived at around 11pm and was very tired from the drive. I came prepared with directions for how to check in, which were incorrect. It stated that the code to unlock the door was a certain number and it wasn't i spent 15 minutes trying open the door. I finally called maintenance and it was a totally different number than what was told it was going to be. Second, the bottom of the driveway need some serious work done. If we would have had rental cars then we would have been paying extra upon return. Backing up out of the driveway was horrible and scrapped our bumpers and it was awful. We finally decided to park on the side of the rode which was a burden because the driveway is a very steep hill. Please fix this! Besides that, the cabin was wonderful and comfortable.

Our 4 families, 16 people total, split up perfectly between the rooms and the air mattress we set up in lieu of the living room couch bed, which in our opinion needs to be fixed or fully replaced. The cabin itself is beautiful and spacious enough we never felt cramped. We loved the openness and general homey feeling of the place! We spent each day exploring parts of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, which was at most 25 minutes away. We even planned to order in a couple of nights, but being less than a couple miles from the restaurants, we found it more convenient to carry out instead. Overall, our expectations, considering price and location, were at a minimum met and at times exceeded. Pertaining to the previous reviews, the beds downstairs and the couches alike were indeed not the most comfortable, but they were bearable for a week. The couch beds were either broken or unstable enough we didn't use them. The hot tub was ant-free and in working order; the kids, who didn't mind being in hot water in the heat of summer, all loved it. There actually was WI-FI and it didn't skip a beat, even with multiple devices streaming movies and games at the same time. Our group mostly congregated in the kitchen and living room where more seating would have been nice, but with such a large group, even if there was an extra couch, we would have still had people sitting on the floor. Again, overall, we had a great week with the family and the cabin will hold many fond memories for us all. If you're looking for a large cabin, close to popular attractions, for a great price, this is it!

    It was an okay cabin. I think some yard work needed to be done.

    When we arrived, I had to call the local number given to ask why my code wouldn't work to enter the cabin. Maintenance hadn't been there to update it. The floor could've been swept better. It looked liked there was sawdust on the floor by the fireplace. The hot tub was great. It did have a nice porch. I had a hard time with my vehicle to get up the driveway without it scraping my car. I figured out how to approach it and it was fine after that. Overall the cabin was okay.

    I booked this cabin for my bachelorette party weekend and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It was roomy enough for the 14 guests. We loved the open kitchen/living area, the patio and the hot tub. Lots of memories were made. I also had a lot of stupid questions and the contacts were super easy to get ahold of and answered all my questions promptly! I loved the cabin and highly recommend it!

    This cabin needs some serious updating. Upon arrival the grass was a foot tall. It had rained alot but the bushes growing together were a give away that it just isnt well maintained outside. The cabin was still decorated for christmas (not a cleanliness issue but made it feel unkept none the less). We had a housekeeping issue upon arrival but the mainentce staff was amazing and came back to clean right away! Very nice and apologetic! But all through the weekend we kept finding things broken. The maintence isnt to blame for this, if owners wont replace things there iant much they can do. The pool table sticks all had broken tips, a bucket under the downstairs sink we had to dump. One shower head didn't work at all. Bees were everywhere outside obviously borring into the house. And the mattresses upstairs and in the basement were terrible... you can feel the springs in them. All of our guests couldnt wait to get home. However, for the money, it was doable. At least we had a place to stay together. But if you are looking to really impress guests this is not the place. If its all you can do right now then itll work.

    The cabin was spacious and clean. We were there on a ladies retreat and stayed at the cabin most of the time. The kitchen was huge and the wrap around porch was amazing. When we did go out for dinner each evening, Pigeon Forge was just minutes away and convenient. We would all recommend this cabin for families or retreats. Our suggestions for improvement are minor. There were only five of us and we could have used more towels. It would also be nice to have larger couches. Note: If you are handicapped or cannot maneuver uneven rising sidewalks and stairs, this is not the cabin for you. Also for the owners: When we arrived, someone was using the hot tub and ran when we drove up. You might want to secure that area better.

    Cabin was awesome. There was some issues though. There was no welcome book anywhere so I had to email and find out wifi password etc. The bath tub drain was clogged and no hdmi cables for TV. We got hit with heavy rain and roof started leaking and was raining in the living room. Other than that, cabin was nice

    This is ine of the best cabins I have ever stayed in. Decorated very tastefully and very lodge like feel. Homey and comfortable for a large family. Very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be returning to visit this cabin!

    The cabin was nicely furnished and perfect for our party of 13. I wish there was a larger gathering spot but everyone found their favorite place, spending time in the hot tub, playing pool, cooking in the kitchen, or watching a movie in the basement. Ask for the WiFi code before you go because there is not a welcome book. Overall a great place to stay!

    I love the area and the cabin is absolutely beautiful and very clean. The only thing I was disappointed about was when I reached out twice to have the hot tub looked at and no one ever came out to look at it so we didn't get to enjoy the hot tub which was actually one part we were looking forward to
