Great little cabin off the beaten path
This is a smaller cabin that is a bit deep in the woods but title property is correct - secluded. You won't see another cabin once you arrive and there is plenty of space for yard games and a small fire pit. Hot tub worked great and we slept 8 adults comfortably. It can feel a bit dated if you want to spend more time in the cabin, but we had all necessary items for the entire weekend we stayed. We had come for one of the NASCAR race weekends and you are so close to track you hear them practicing/other races. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and can't wait to get back next summer.
Nice place to rest
All my friends and I had an amazing weekend
Wasn't horrible like the other reviews stated
The home just needs a deep cleaning. Make sure you're driving a SUV, one of our cars got stuck, but we drove by and asked a neighbor for help and they pulled us right out. The place is really hard to find but once u find it you're good to go. I rated it a 3 because of the water, it was a weird color and smelled funny, I personally bathed and washed dishes with water bottles the entire stay. All in all not a bad spot
Dara, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Please know we have shared your comments with the homeowner so any possible adjustments may be made for the next guests. Directions to find the home are included in the email sent two weeks prior to arrival. We encourage guests to reach out to the local contact with any questions locating the home so you can have a hassle-free stay. Thank you again!
minor issues but in all the perfect secluded cottage!
Although it could use a deep clean, you can see that they are trying to fix what needs to be fixed around the cabin. As it says in the title, secluded pocono lake cottage, it says exactly what it is. There is a fire pit and a hot tub, both in working condition. This cabin comfortably fits 12 people and more, they have more space then is shown in pictures! Be cautious when arriving, the road to the actual cabin is unpaved and somewhat hidden. Finding the cabin at night will be extra tricky due to this factor. The direct contact number was extremely helpful and prompt with answering calls and question.
The overall stay was amazing! My family and I will be returning to stay here again.
Tiffany, we're glad you had an amazing time and this cabin was an ideal fit for your family overall. We're glad to hear the local contact was prompt in answering your questions locating the cabin late at night. They're an excellent resource for guests for any questions during your stay as well so it can be as comfortable as possible. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
First I would like to start out by saying this listing is absolutely deceiving & I believe the pictures have not been updated in YEARS. When traveling to an unknown location, you should warn your renters of the long, narrow, wooded roads you have to travel down to reach the house. When you write "secluded" you should specify that renters are driving down DARK, unpaved, wooded roads. And if traveling in the winter be prepared for sheets of ice. Not only were the roads iced, but the driveway was a complete ice rink. We rented this house for a birthday getaway with family. Before arriving we were told the hot tub was broke. We were disappointed but wasn't the end of the world. Upon arrival we noticed that the hot tub was in fact fixed, but there was ice all around it was not safe to be used. We walk into the home and the pictures you advertise are nothing compared to what we seen. The couch is so old and broken , if that's what you meant by "sink in the couch" you weren't lying. The sun room is not heated so how do your expect our 11 guests to eat comfortably in 15 degree weather. (Another thing that should have been noted.) The carpet in the living room isn't even the same color as in the picture. The oven was so filthy on the inside, with built up grease we were afraid a grease fire would start if we used it. The pictures you posted are extremely filtered. Moving along to upstairs, the blankets and pillows are stained yellow in the bedroom with the bunk beds.. you forgot to note that one of our guests would have to sleep in A CLOSET! No one felt safe or comfortable sleeping in there. Extremely misleading. You have windows everywhere with no blinds or curtains. You forgot to note that the heat takes forever to heat the house so we had space heaters all over the place. You did not note that the running water in the faucets, showers and toilets is ORANGE! The property manager came out and salted for us at night, which was appreciated and the next morning but the salt did not help. We were so fed up and wanted to leave but we couldn't. We were stuck in the driveway on sheets of ice. Our family had to chip away at the ice and, after a hour, we finally got out. You should warn your travelers, if coming in the winter to rent an SUV. We were extremely misled and did not even complete our stay. We arrived Friday night and left Saturday morning. We would have left Friday night if it wasn't pitch black out and our cars could get out. Our weekend was ruined.
Juan, thank you for your review. We take the accuracy of our listings seriously, and we have confirmed that this property is exactly as advertised online. We do specify that this home is located in a secluded mountain location and we have also confirmed that the roads were completely plowed for your arrival, however, we apologize if the hilly landscape caught you off guard. We're glad to hear that the hot tub was working properly for your stay, and we wish you had reached out to your local contact regarding the ice so he could apply salt to that area as well. There is an extra mattress located in one of the closets for the owner's use, however, this is not included in the 12-person bed count on our listing. Without this mattress, the home comfortably sleeps 12, and these homeowners would never expect or want a guest to sleep in a closet. All comforters and pillows in the home were replaced as of December 15th, so we are confident all are perfectly clean for guest use. All bedrooms in the home have blinds, however, the downstairs common areas do not, so that guests are able to enjoy the amazing views. Finally, these homeowners will start having their local contact preheat the home on the morning of guests' arrivals, so the home is warm and ready for travelers. Thank you again for your feedback. Best, the Evolve Team
The house was located in a great spot. The drive to it was a little sketchy but once we found it it was fine. It’s extremely outdated. They advertise a hot tub but it is completely not functional in fact it was empty with rust, dirt, etc. inside pretty disgusting. The house looked like it wasn’t cleaned prior to our arrival. The floor was dirty, pots pans silverware all dirty, bathrooms dirty we had to shower with flip flops. The beds are all uncomfortable make sure to bring your own sheets. The TV did not have basic channels 2, 4 etc. luckily we were able to find another channel to watch the ball drop. The WiFi is terribly slow so hope you have a good data plan. All appliances were filthy the toaster, the oven, the stovetop etc. The house needs major TLC. Wouldn’t stay there again unless it was completely renovated or just properly cleaned with functioning things such as the hot tub that was advertised when we booked the property.
