I'm giving Evening Shade a "5" star review for two main reasons: The owners went above and beyond to get our room ready for an early arrival, which we very much appreciated. Secondly, the room was spotless! Crisp white sheets, nice towels, and a nice location by the river, which will surely lull you to sleep. There was one part...

Very nice people, great riverside location, good place to chill out. Room was nice and simple but had all you need. Nearby restaurants and things to see and shopping,etc. Really laid back in the off season!

I have been coming to the Evening Shade River Lodge for two years now, and plan to continue to come in the future. The hotel overlooks a beautiful mountain stream, and the views that you get of Chimney Rock and the surrounding mountains are incredible! You can sit on the back porch balcony and take in the sunsets, and drive...

We were looking for a place to stay over Thanksgiving and found this motel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was at the ground level. It was clean, charming and old fashioned with a nice river view. We had Wifi. We loved the little private river park with big boulders and the views. I remember the driveway to the...

We needed a spot just for an overnight stay in the Lake Lure area. This is a great little retro motel, right on the river. At first we were a bit dismayed at how close it was to the road, but we soon discovered it didn't matter a bit! Traffic slowed to almost nothing by evening, and the we only...

Took me back to my childhood. Perfect place to stay if you want to be by a mountain river with a view of Chimney Rock State Park. Grandson loved climbing on the large boulders along the river. Friendly management, cozy rooms, beautiful scenery. Will stay here again.

Southern hospitality with warm and peaceful surroundings. Not new but clean and serene. Wonderful management service. I Recommended it if you are looking for a lodge by the river and rocks with the sound of the rushing river, lovely landscape and a down-home feel.

Evening Shade is a very Warm and Cozy place to stay. We spent 3 nights there and didn't want to leave. The views of Chimney Rock and the River are right outside your back door and possibly your window depending on which room you get ( we had room 3). We had a small and adequate kitchen. The room was...

I've been coming up to this area for years but have actually never stayed overnight. My fiancé has never been to the area before and I planned a surprise trip for his birthday, including an overnight stay. I had no guidelines as far as choosing a place to stay, but went with The Evening Shade since it was closest to...
