Relaxation at it's finest. Our Sweet Escape

  • 5 of 5

Pretty sure staying here convinced us it is time to get away more often. The peacefulness of the Bay must be experienced in person.

It has enough amenities to be more than camping, and convince you that you are away from home. The eclectic collection of furnishings make it likely the most unique place you will stay.

It has WiFi, so set up your WiFi cell service before visiting because the Bay signals strengths are spotty at best. The restaurants within driving distance come highly recommended by the Locals. We enjoyed the Sandpiper in White Stone for the fresh seafood.

It is possible a weekend isn't enough time to actually relax, but recharging here for a couple of days we endorse and highly recommend as a get away from the Northern Virginia rat race and over (depending on your true get away purpose) the commercial touristy destinations like OBX, Colonial and Delaware beaches.

Try it. You'll like it.

Unsanitary & Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

The property is overgrown, grass over our ankles. The toilet mostly didn't flush... The manager knew prior to our arrival that it wasn't working and never told us until we'd driven over ten hours. Manager screamed at me on the phone to get out and that she wasn't helping me, then refused to take my calls and requested I not contact her again (on first full day). What followed was unpleasant to say the least. Evolve has great customer service and did what they could for me. The front area looks like a dump site. The dishes had to be washed prior to use. The painted concrete floor bubbled in the humidity and flaked off on our feet and shoes. The tile in the shower is broken on the ground and is sharp on your feet. There are ZERO areas for any belongings or supplies including food... All dressers, drawers and cabinets are stuffed to capacity. Overall this is not a place I would return to or recommend for anyone. It isn't "rustic" it is run-down.

Owner's Response: Christina, we are very sorry for the issues you encountered. Here at Evolve, it's our goal for all guests to have comfortable stays, and we regret that your stay did not live up to that standard. The homeowner did everything they could to ensure the toilet was functioning properly. As there was massive rainfall when you stayed, the homeowner drove down to fix this and confirmed that the toilet was flushing fine upon arrival. We understand aside from this issue you loved this cottage and were satisfied with your stay. The homeowners are doing all they can to ensure guests have an enjoyable experience here, and we are confident future guests will have pleasant stays! Best, the Evolve Team

Cozy adventure

  • 3 of 5

This place was clean and bright and the host left some nice touches for us, but as noted on another review, not quite up to the description. With that in mind, we came prepared. There only a small heater in the bedroom and a wood stove in the main room. Keeping this going was a chore, but a great way to spend the Thanksgiving holiday. It will be a great memory for years to come.

Well maintained and clean, but cramped.

  • 1 of 5

We stayed for a November fishing trip. Unfortunately, we did not realize the house was a) made of cinderblock, and b) relied on a wood stove for heat. If that information is available in the web description it is not apparent. I called the cottage contact when we found out, asking for some wood or a space heater, and was told it was our responsibility to get wood. The contact suggested the Wal-Mart in Kilmarnock. We had to leave after 2 nights due to the cold. Other than that, it was very full of decorative items, and difficult to find space to put things down, especially in the kitchen. I would only recommend it for a summer trip. As the house shoreline is armored with boulders, the only beach appears to be on neighbors property.

Owner's Response: Bob, thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We are very sorry to hear that this home did not meet your expectations. We have passed your feedback along to the property manager, who has assured us that the description and the photographs accurately portray the home. While the beach is not directly in front of the property, it takes only a minute or two to walk to the beach. We apologize that the temperature was uncomfortable, and the homeowner has let us know that the right type of firewood is entirely able to keep the home nice and warm. Thanks again for the feedback! Best, The Evolve Team

Cute eclectic cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a really cute dog friendly cottage. The decorations are very eclectic. There is a nice screened porch and seating areas facing the bay. The only downside, you have to walk down the street to access the beach. We would have loved to be able just to step onto the beach from the cabin. Maybe a private property issue? Owner very easy to deal with and unit was clean.
