Who knew so much awesomeness was just an hour southeast of Nashville. Attended a small corporate retreat for 2 days. Meeting facilities are good. Good connectivity. Food is excellent. Ambiance is unmatched. Quaint, cozy. Rooms are comfortable and without TV (welcomed). Game rooms, lounges with TV, bars and plenty of fireplaces. Place would be extraordinary in the Fall. Was cold...

Thank you for your review. I'm very glad to hear you had a favorable experience - and I trust a productive meeting. That's actually a big part of what we do. You are right about the Fall and hope you'll have a chance to see the property again as the leaves change. Thank you again! William

We hosted a company Christmas party this year at Evin's Mill. First time anyone in our party had been to the grounds, and it was perfect in every way possible. The lodging is very cozy, clean, comfortable, and beautiful inside and out. The food was nothing short of amazing....from the gourmet dinner to the sack lunch, the Chef and his...

Joined about 25 or so others for a retreat -- "Story, Song, and Solitude" -- and the setting of Evins Mill was as responsible for the success of the retreat as the leaders and participants. Beautiful surroundings and superb staff.

Our company stayed at Evins Mill for an offsite retreat in November. The experience was noting short of amazing. The Evins Mill staff were attentive, kind and went above and beyond to makes sure we were taken care of. The food is absolutely delicious and the chef was extremely accommodating to a handful of our staff with food allergies. The...

We were extremely happy to discover Evins Mill for our 4 night family trip this Thanksgiving. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect before we arrived but the best way to describe this place is that it has the feel of a cosy, very comfortable cabin with all the service and fantastic food of a wonderful hotel. We loved all...

After discovering The Inn at Evins Mill in 2012, it has become our favorite destination for rest and relaxation. Prepare to be pampered from the time you walk in the door until you check out! If you're looking to enjoy sights and sounds of nature, it's all around you. If you're looking to enjoy a quiet afternoon in the winter,...

I have never written a review before now. My wife and I stayed the first week of November to see the leaves change and attend the CMA's. What a wonderful resort!!

Along with another couple, we spent a fun weekend at Evins Mill. We stayed in the Creekside rooms and had the sights and sounds of the creek down below as we sat in rockers on the porch. As part of our package they provided all three meals. The food was excellent and in large portions. The staff was very friendly...

Thank you for taking time to share your experience of Evins Mill here - and of course for your patronage! I'm glad that you had a favorable experience.

We live within 30 miles of the Mill, only go for dinner. It is always excellent from service, booking, food quality, and preparation. It is our "go to" place for entertaining guests, holidays or just a special treat for ourselves. The facilities are lovely and always improving. We feel it is the best within a 150 mile radius.
