Fall ride getaway
This was the third time we have stayed at this cabin and we absolutely love it. It is a perfect getaway for us and our pets. The location is beautiful and during the time of our stay, the leaves were just starting to change colors. It is quiet and relaxing but not so remote that you are too far from civilization. Thank you so much for allowing us to make this our fall ride getaway.
Wasn’t planning on doing dishes and cleaning the kitchen.
After eagerly waiting our family vacation,I was presented with the option to cancel or do without a dishwasher for our week . Obviously,we didn’t have the option of canceling for 11 people at the last minute. We were told that the repair/ part would arrive that Friday,if we didn’t mind the intrusion. Friday came and went with no part or repair. While I waited I cleaned and organized the mishmash of kitchenware. No big pots in the advertised gourmet kitchen. Dirty wooden spoons and utensils pushed in the linen drawer.
The grill was unusable.. Covered with food and grease and no propane. After much complaining,the caretaker came with propane and cleaned the grill as well.
The mosquitoes were horrible so We had to buy foggers for the deck in order to sit outside. Bought firewood,because we didn’t bring an axe or chainsaw to cut our own. Which you must have to do,because they didn’t supply any as said.
This is a unique property,needs some grooming inside and out. Very disappointing to find the trails overgrown,the pond considered toxic,and no waste facility for trash or recycling.
Communication between the owners and caretaker was not good. . The caretaker showed up a day early wanting to know why we were still there.,said our contract was up the day before. We showed him the email with dates. Then he and his two big dogs left.
The beds in the lower level need some updating. Futons for adults aren’t the most comfortable.
Thank heaven for the washer and dryer,because there were only 9 bath towels,three hand towels and 9 washcloths for all of us to use.
Advertising for up to 12 or more people is great,just didn’t expect to need to wash towels everyday. Besides washing dishes without a dish rack. We used the oven racks and beach towels to dry the dishes on.
I’ve had worse and I’ve had much better vacations. Thank heaven for state parks,Friday fish fries,Spotted cow and bowling and family game nights. We will be elsewhere in the US next year. Thank you Northwoods for your efforts.
Diana, the homeowner would like to pass along the following message:
"We're very sorry about the inconvenience the dishwasher repair caused. As you can imagine, the delivery of items in rural areas can occasionally be a challenge. In regards to the pond, note the pond is not toxic, is very beautiful, and is home to a variety of wildlife. It is great for paddle boating, which is provided/available for use, or kayaking (not provided). Due to the naturally dark water, lack of shoreline, and a quick drop off, we do not allow swimming." Best, the Evolve Team
Loved the location. The property needs a handyman to go through and fix a few things, but otherwise it's a great house and we didn't have any real problems. I'm not sure if the listing talks about this or not, but I guess the pond is toxic and you can't swim in it. Loved the covered deck and back deck. Beautiful view of trees and pond. Lots of good sleeping areas and 2 different really nice family areas to hang out. Kitchen is totally open to everything, which always is a plus.
