The vibe at Evans Notch Mountain Cabin
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Wow. What a great little cabin! Jerusha, the host, has thought of everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing stay in the mountains – so your only job here is to just do the relaxing. Easy enough, in this cozy space. I especially loved using the oil lamps and candles for light; there’s just something that feels great about getting away from our normal electrified world. No worries, though, if you need to charge your phone and stay connected – there are battery chargers available for that very purpose, and my Verizon signal was actually pretty decent outside the cabin.
Getting there is an adventure in itself, but Jerusha provides detailed directions complete with photos so you know you’re on the right track. Once there, you’ll want to spend at least a few nights to really sink into the rhythm of being away from it all. It’s a great place for letting your dog roam free; ours loved having free range of the woods.
Highly recommend a stay at Evans Notch if you find yourself in the area!
The Evens Notch Cabin was great! It is very remote which is totally what we were hoping for. The cabin is fully stocked with everything (beer, wine, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, marshmallows, spices, water, non alcoholic drinks) you might need and more! The cabin is great...100% off the grid- but has lanterns, solar lighting, gas stove, refrigerator, nice wood stove and so forth. The road the cabin was the best part for me... but its pretty rugged a 4 wheel drive vehicle is needed for some of the road to the cabin.
The area around Even's Notch is pretty rural. There is a good corner store about 5-10 minutes away- but aside from that not a ton around. Which is totally what we were looking for. So, if that is what you are looking for than I would highly recommend this area. There are great hikes from the cabin and the area has some beautiful spots.
Finally, Jerusha was amazing! She was great about communication, the cabin is super clean, has a very comfortable bed, great views, tons of firewood, and truly had everything we needed. Jerusha met us at the cabin and went through everything with us... she even left a stocked mini fridge with cold beers! She is super helpful and showed us local hikes and place to swim and other cool local spots. She took a good deal of time to make sure had everything and understood how to use everything in the cabin. But was really nice was the amount of time she spent showing us the area and making sure we took full advantage of the area-can't say enough about Jerusha! Super cool- very helpful for sure.
This cabin and hosts provided us with the perfect weekend. Quiet, beautiful and full of life everywhere you look.
The local hiking is great, the old mica mine was a perfect pit stop.
Thank you again to Jeff and Jersusha for letting us use their little piece of paradise!
The cabin was absolutely lovely. My husband and I stayed there with our three kids and we were perfectly comfortable with an air mattress on the floor for extra sleeping space. It was our first time in a cabin with amenities, so working the outdoor shower and the stove were a learning curve, but we figured it out. A lot of thought was put into making this a cozy place to stay, from the sink-like set-up to the wood stove for warmth indoors, the fire pit and barbecue, fridge (!) and lots of snacks and drinks provided, not to mention linens, towels and toiletries. There are several hiking trails within walking distance (although it takes some map savvy and attention to the signs when arriving to figure out how to find the trailheads.) The views from the mountains were soul-soothing. We were glad we didn't have to leave the cabin once we arrived because the last bit of driving is very rocky and difficult terrain. Waking up to the view of the mountains out the bedroom window was simply fantastic. The night time ambience with the oil lamps and candles was lovely. This was a memorable trip for all of us (even the one who "hates hiking" and didn't want to come!)
A few things to be aware of are that people with allergies should think twice. While the place was clean, it was clear that dogs had been there. Also, the outhouse is...an outhouse. For those used to flush toilets when camping in state parks, that part is definitely a downgrade. But the lovely cabin and everything else made up for it.
The hosts were available by phone/text all weekend to answer questions, which was helpful. They are committed to making sure you enjoy your stay.
