This is the classic style lake house . The place is very cozy and the views are wonderful. The electrical could use some upgrading - there are numerous extension cords on most fixtures.
The lake area is good for kayaking but not for swimming.
We had a relaxing time on Caroga Lake.
Worst cabin experience ever
I should have trusted comments from all other visitors regarding cleaning. I have being to many cabins, but this one is by far the worst cabin ever. Every single room in the entire cabin was dirty. Trash of previous visitors was still there. Every dish was sticky. Half of the lights were not working. Most of the appliances like microwave, dishwasher, etc were not working. I would strongly recommend anyone not to visit this place and spoil your vacation.
Great location, needs deep cleaning
The house itself, the garden and the location are great! However, the house requires a deep cleaning. There is some smell in the house covered up with lots of room refresher. Tap water smells badly like sulfur. There is a water cooler now for drinking water.
Urs, it's great to hear you enjoyed this cottage itself and its ideal location. We value your insight on areas of improvement and have shared your comments with the homeowner so any possible adjustments may be made for future guests. Thank you for sharing your experience with us! Best, the Evolve Team
Great location, comfortable home, could use a little more cleaning
This is a great location on Caroga Lake, with nice views. Very quiet & peaceful. We saw the most wonderful sunsets over the water! We loved having the canoe (rowboat had a broken oar), and using the fire pit. Close to the marina, which also offers many types of rentals. House was comfortable and had all we needed for a fun fall weekend. Kitchen was clean & well-stocked. Beds and furniture were comfortable. Heat worked well with the chilly nights. There is 1 bathroom, not 2 as the pictures & descriptions mention. The main 2 drawbacks for us were the sulphur water (which definitely should have been included in the listing description!), and the need for a deep cleaning around room edges, window sills, ledges, knick knacks, etc. There was evidence that small critters had been there, like you would find in a rustic cabin in the woods. Otherwise is a great property and location to enjoy peaceful time on the lake - we had a great time there.
Carol, thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We're so glad you enjoyed this home in a peaceful location and appreciated its beautiful views. We are happy to inform you that since your stay a water cooler has been added. The homeowner is dedicated providing the optimal stay for guests, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
Good Location - needs work / cleaning
I agree with the previous review - "It was clear that this property was a well-loved family summer camp and we enjoyed our stay here." But, it's also clear that this house really requires some work / cleaning before renting. The listing should clearly indicate that the water has strong odor of sulphur. Some people have never experienced that and would not be willing to stay. The electrical wiring caused us some concern also. The pictures in the listing are a little deceiving. The location was great, and we really had a good time.
Nancy, thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed this home's ideal location and had an enjoyable time with your family. The homeowner informed us that the water is clean and is very hard at the start and needs to be run for a while. Soon they will be adding a water cooler for an even better experience. Thank you for sharing your insight! Best, the Evolve Team
