We were in Evergreen recently for a wedding. We stayed at Bauers Spruce Island Chalets, and could not have been more pleased with our experience! The staff was very accomodating, the chalet was everything and more that we could have wished for, and the beauty of the grounds and wildlife was truly amazing. We had a beautiful baby deer 4 feet from our chalet everyday eating greenery and did not seem to be afraid of us at all! My husband and myself highly reccomend Bauers and we hope to have the pleasure of returning agian one day soon!
We stayed here with two other couples, so there were six adults total. The common spaces were great, and the kitchen was well equipped to handle cooking meals for the weekend. We spent time playing volleyball and washers in the large grassy area common to all the chalets. We cooked steaks on the charcoal grill one evening. Lots of deer came through the property, which is located next to a creek. The only thing lacking were a few basic kitchen essentials, such as salt/pepper and paper towels. There are some minor faucet issues, but nothing that prevented from an enjoyable weekend. We'll be back next year!
The laundry facility for all cabins (used by owner only) was attached to our cabin. Our one bathroom shared the wall with the laundry room - at 8:00 a.m. a family member took a shower and noticed a decrease of water pressure. The owner began washing laundry and couldn't help but hear our shower running on the other side of wall. Five other family members needed to take showers that morning; however, couldn't - the hot water had run out; same hot water heater was used for both cabin and laundry. Tacks from carpet popped out; dirty floors; stains on carpet; broken glass in windows; mold, leaves, dirt in windows; dirty drapery; hairs in bed linens; marks, holes on walls; broken futon. Open trash containers 20 ft from cabin. Will never go back.
We have a reunion every two years. Our family was overwhelmed by the amount of wildlife that just walked through the property. We had plenty of room to spread out, and were very pleased with the accomodations, from cabins to studios, we had rented everything. This reunion was a year in the planning stage and no matter what the questions were given excellent advise and help. Thank you for making our reunion one to remember. Rogers Clan
We were early for our check-in but they were just finishing cleaning our cabin. The manager had said that it would be about 10 minutes. He told us about a couple of places to grab a bite. Upon entering the room everything was very clean. After reading a previous review I wasn't expecting it to be that clean. My family really enjoyed the grounds. My 2 year old had a bunch of fun on the jungle gym. I would highly recommend Bauers to anyone looking for a nice clean quiet mountain getaway.
