My family & I absolutely loved this little cabin! It's inside is stunning! We will definitely be returning!
Only down fall is I forgot my diet Coke in the fridge when we were leaving :( I hope you enjoy diet coke as much as I do!
Thank you for letting us enjoy this beautiful cabin. We had a blast spending NYE having board game Olympics in the front room while watching the ball drop.
It snowed while we were here so we went into town and bought a sled for the kiddo and she had a blast sliding down the hill on the side of the house. We also built a snowman in the front yard for all the passing traffic to see :)
Again, this place was perfect for what I was looking for, for my family & I.
Cabin life for a Weekend
The cabin was charming. It was beautifully furnished and had wilderness decor throughout. My husband and grandchildren loved watching all the freight trains rumble past, although they kept me awake at night. We enjoyed our stay, but had hoped the cabin was in a more secluded spot. It was just feet from a busy highway. The area was mosquito ridden, but otherwise enjoyable.
Great place but no view
Great place but trains come thru frequently. Could be big issue if you're a light sleeper.
Wonderful interior, but deceptive description and photos of exterior
The interior of this home is very nice, and comfortable. However, the owner should alert renters that trains are frequent, very close to the home, and run all night. Unless you are a heavy sleeper, you likely will not sleep well at this property. We did not "wake up fully rested and ready for the day", as promised. The fact that this hasn't been clearly stated in other reviews is puzzling, and I find it a deceptive omission from the property description.
It is also not clear from the photos that there is a busy 55mph road right in front of the property. If you decide to "... have an outdoor BBQ as you relax on the front porch!", there will be cars whizzing by 30 ft in front of you. Our party only included adults, but travelers with young children would need to supervise them very closely due to the road in front and the train tracks in back. I'm also unsure why the heading emphasizes that the property is "... on the Mississippi River!", since the river wasn't visible or easily accessible from the home. The photo with the leaves off the trees creates a false impression.
I have rented many homes over the years and this is the only time I have been disappointed. It's always best to be honest, and let renters decide if the property is right for them. Especially when your guests' sleep and safety might be compromised.
Chris, We are sorry to hear your stay fell short of expectations. We and the homeowner take feedback from our guests very seriously and will work together to make any necessary updates to the listing so future guests know what to expect and may have an exceptional stay at this vacation home. Best, The Evolve Team
Awesome New Years stay!
2 words....Great place! Decorated perfectly and comfortable for our family. Mike was the best host. The trains were awesome to see. Thanks again!
We could not have been more surprised at how nice this cabin is. Was skeptical at first when booking online, but was very pleased upon arrival. Very clean and well furnished. I can see us coming back each fall!
Thanks very much Amy. We look forward to seeing you again next year!!
