    Beautiful house in a beautiful neighborhood. We rented the house for a long weekend with 4 couples and it was perfect. Bedrooms were spacious with comfy beds and pillows. We enjoyed fires in the firepit, watching the ducks and geese on the lake and even played a few drinking games in the game room. We'd love to visit again in the summer when the pool is open. It was a wonderful weekend in Stillwater!

    7 ladies stayed here for a girl’s weekend and we had so much fun. This house has it all from the welcome gift upon arrival to the cozy outdoor seating, and the well stocked kitchen. The beds and sheets are some of the most comfortable I have slept on. We ubered to town to listen to some bands. The town has so much to do too.

    The property may seem like a value but it is not..........

    Stayed 3 nights in late July. Day 1, found a small dead mouse in a kitchen pantry storage container. No big deal. Day 2, caught 2 mice running around the place - presumably dehydrating from the poison. Bigger deal. Patched an escape hole in the woodwork with aluminum foil to try and keep the critters out of the living area. Failed. Day 3, saw a couple more mice running around our feet. That was the straw. There appears to be a rodent infestation that the owners/managers are abundantly aware of as their response to my call was to stop by and put more poison inside the house. The pool is salt water chlorinated only. Do not swim in it without checking the sanitation. I splashed pool water in my eye while cleaning leaves and frogs out and received an eye infection for my troubles. This place is in my opinion unhealthy and unsafe until these issues are resolved. And yes, the upstairs is where ALL the bedrooms and showers are located which makes showering and sleeping uncomfortable as they lock the A/C at 74 which traps all the humidity upstairs. Heat rises. Given the the house faces due west they ask that the blinds be closed during all sunlit hours. Go figure. I requested a refund due to the infestation and they ignored me. Evolve is of no use and VRBO/HomeAway should seriously reconsider that relationship. Pass.

    Manager's Response:
    Hi Robert, We were sorry to hear that some aspects of your stay fell short of expectations. Pests have never been an issue at this property before, and the homeowner immediately took action after you reached out to ensure that they would not be a problem for the rest of your stay. You did not raise any other concerns with the owner or our team for the rest of your trip, and we understand that the issues with the mice did not prevent you from booking the property again for next summer. We do appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, and the owner would also like to share the following:

    "We are sincerely sorry for the trouble during your stay with us. Our desire is always to provide our guests with the best possible experience while vacationing at our home. In light of this, we did everything possible to remedy this issue as quickly and effectively as possible and compensated you for your inconvenience.
    The pool is professionally maintained weekly and does use salt to produce chlorine. Frogs and leaves are occasionally going to be found in the pool, even with weekly maintenance, which is why we have skimmers for guests to use, should it be needed.
    Due to the large number of windows overlooking the property, guests are encouraged to draw shades on West facing windows late in the afternoon, to help keep things cool. We have also installed a brand new Nest thermostat, allowing guests the freedom to adjust the a/c to their liking."

    Best, the owner and the Evolve Team

    Perfect spot for a getaway

    Property worked out great to get the family together for a long weekend. Plenty of yard and pool toys and close to shopping, restaurants and golfing.

    The bedrooms are all on the second level; something to be aware of with elderly guests.

    We would definitely book again.

    This property has it all! Many great details, well furnished and decorated nicely. The pool was a hit with the family and we felt as though we were at our own private resort as this property is spacious inside and out. There was even a music room with piano and guitars. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space. The house is stocked with everything needed from cooking spices to ziplock bags. We grilled dinner in the evening's and enjoyed the fire pit by the pool. There is a game room downstairs with darts and a pool table. The beds were comfortable and the only drawback was an issue with the A/C. The thermostat was a nest system on the main level and they had control over the settings so we were unable to be cool enough in the evening as there isn't thermostat upstairs where all 4 bedrooms are located and it was at least 10+ degrees warmer which made it very uncomfortable while trying to sleep. They provided fans in each room but that didn't help cool it down. Hopefully they will get that issue resolved. I would give the property 5 stars if the owners would have allowed us control over the thermostat as a guest paying to use the property should be able to adjust the temp/climate to their liking.

    Manager's Response:
    Denise, we're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall! We're sorry to hear about the unfortunate issue you had with the AC, and we can confirm this was an isolated incident. We understand the maintenance staff was at the property within 30 minutes to asses the situation and determined it was due to an AC maintenance issue. While the AC was being fixed, we recommended opening the windows as this would've helped to alleviate all the heat discomfort. Additionally, after the issue was resolved the next day, the homeowner confirmed through the Nest app that you kept the thermostat set at 68 degrees for the remainder of your stay. We understand the homeowner took generous measures to make up for the inconvenience you experienced and even offered to reimburse you if you chose to leave. We're glad this was able to be quickly fixed and hope you'll stay with us again in the future! Best, the Evolve Team

    We came for a short family vacation. The pool got the most use! The house was fantastic with plenty of room. My kids enjoyed the musical instruments! It?s proximity to the cities was great! Very quiet neighborhood! The bedrooms are large. Enjoyed the basement games. Liked having a garage we could park in. Just disappointed we couldn?t get on the lake due to the the lily pads on the lake. But would be a Great Lake in other seasons.

    I would strongly recommend staying at this place. It looks amazing in the pictures and it still exceeded our expectations. Never had a single issue. Lots of secret amenities that it doesn't list on the site that you will be excited about.
