    If you're visiting in the winter months, plan a day trip to Sapphire Valley and Maggie Valley for a memorable day on the slopes.

    Golf enthusiasts will look forward to practicing their swing at Red Bird Golf Links or Wade Hampton Golf Club, and many other courses nearby. If fishing is more your game, stop at Brookings Anglers in Cashiers before casting a line for trout.

    Great thanksgiving weekend for the family

    Reviewed by: Anonymous on


    Excellent location, rural enough but still close to a few towns. Nice hiking areas nearby. The house/barn itself was lovely-there are some quirks about it (fun toilet upstairs, which we still used!). Fully functional kitchen. The only thing we found odd was there was a collection of acorns underneath one of the bedroom pillows...squirrels or tooth fairy?

    So disappointed

    Reviewed by: Layla H. on


    Cute property, great location! But, it was so gross. This place needs dehumidifiers. The smell alone...musty, wet, old. My husbands asthma was triggered and he came home with a weird dry cough, ugghhh!However, the worst part for me personally was the spider webs/spiders. Behind the beds, up in between the rafters, in every corner, every lamp were spider webs and egg sacks. The surfaces were clean and so was the fridge, that was nice. Mostly disappointed because review after review says ”get a deep clean” and I felt for SURE this would have been a top priority! Alas....nope!

    Layla, we're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay at this cottage. The homeowner has high standards for their property, and take cleanliness issues seriously. They plan to reach out to their cleaning crew so that they can work together to ensure that cleanliness issues don't recur for future travelers. We hope you'll consider traveling with Evolve again!

    We had a great time and really enjoyed the morning coffee by the stream right next to Da Barn.

    Peaceful little spot in the mountains!

    We had a great time! Our family of 5 enjoyed sitting on the hammock by the stream and burning a fire in 65 degree weather for the weekend. We loved the wooden cabin feel the house had. It was so relaxing for naps. Thanks again!

    Enjoyable Stay and Beautiful Area at Good Value (but desperately needs a deep clean)

    Reviewed by: Pam G. on


    Beautiful area. Artsy style. Open plan conducive to family time (but no privacy in master suite - needs some type of permanent privacy curtains or screens). Dehumidifier was draining under stairs. Smelled musty. Laundry room smells strongly of cat urine. Owner offered credit, which is appreciated, but we will only return if a thorough deep cleaning is assured.

    overall we had a great time. Loved the open architecture, spaciousness, decor. Should remind people in listing that AC is not available. Asthma people will probably not do well. Also trash outside is bad idea bec of varmints.

    We were visiting for my best friend?s wedding and this house was perfect for us. Beautiful in and out. And Ward was helpful when we called for help with directions to the wedding. Would love to come back some day.

    Good outdoors, improvable indoor

    The outdoor was really nice although the exterior furniture was not clean. Most of the chairs were full of spider webs and dirt. Inside, the floors were sticky and spider webs all around.

    Paula, thank you for taking the time to review this home. We and the homeowner are working diligently with the cleaning staff to ensure that future guests will not encounter the same scenario. Thanks for giving us the means to improve! Best, the Evolve Team

    We had a wonderful girls weekend at the barn. It had everything we needed and was very cozy. It was far enough away from the towns to feel secluded but close enough that you could be there in minutes. I would recommend this place to other travelers.
