My husband and I stayed overnight at the Inn this past weekend (which was the best weather we have had so far this year- perfect timing!). We didn't want to leave! As soon as we checked in to our room we hiked to Carmac Falls. The Falls were just gorgeous and we instantly felt relaxed. We talked about coming in...

My Husband and I spent two nights at the Inn and had a wonderful time. We stayed in one of the Evergreen Lockhart rooms with our Valentines Package and everything was just as promised.

I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend Evins Mill to my friends and family. The staff, food, service, and lodging exceeded our expectations. Evins Mill effortly took care of every detail which made it the perfect location to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday. We look forward to returning to this peaceful, personable place in the future.

I was unable to honor my reservation at the last minute. I called William and he understood once I relayed my story. He canceled my reservation without penalty. I can't wait to rebook when my circumstances change, but it is important that everyone know how personable and fair the administration is.

We only had the opportunity to stay one night but it was wonderful. From the welcome to the set dinner, which was superb, to the most amazing breakfast and a tasty packed lunch to see us on our way, really good value for money, beautiful setting, welcoming and a truly wonderful experience.

The stay at Evin's Mill was the highlight of a very amazing, fun trip to Tennessee. The food, the Southern hospitality, the rooms were all wonderful. I would highly recommend Evin's Mill for a vacation destination. We only had the opportunity to stay 1 night, I didn't want to leave!

Our single night’s stay came with a truly fantastic 4 course meal, filling breakfast to fuel us for the hikes, and sack lunch/snacks to picnic at Carmac Falls – no food planning whatsoever required on our part. The room was clean and comfortable, the main lodge has cozy common areas to enjoy the fireplaces and play nostalgic board games, and...
