We wanted a place close to home to be able to celebrate our anniversary that would still feel like we got away. Evins Mill was the perfect choice. This place is first class all the way.Our room, webb 1, had a beautiful view and was right on the creek. The dinner was outstanding. Service from the time we got there...

Atmosphere is both relaxing and stunning. Good small trails to overlook Carmac Falls. The trail down to the bottom of the falls is moderate in wet conditions, but well worth the effort. OMG - The Dinner (4 course meal) & Allison (Chef) were unbelievable. Wake up to birds, rushing waters & then a breakfast that rivals the dinner. The box...

Made a last minute decision to create an overnight trip for my birthday. Remembered Evins Mill, knew it was close to home (just over an hour in the car) and found a room the night before. The Soltice was new since our last trip (2011) and we found it more than comfortable. Probably will never be the only ones in...

This is a lovely property with a great staff. Our only concern were the many steps between our creekside room and the lodge. We were there on a stormy night and the lights were out along the 43 steps to our room making it dangerous for even people younger than we--spry 70's. Because of this we would not return.

Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback and input - and of course for your patronage. While I'm sorry to hear we won't have the pleasure of hosting you again, I do appreciate the reason. Though it may not be relevant, I wanted to let you know that we do have accommodations in the Solstice Lodge that guests...

We got there a little early and spent some time checking the property out. Loved the huge trees, bridge and game room with table tennis and pool! The room was very comfortable and the covered porch area of each Creekside room was extra nice! The dinner was excellent and the berries and meringue was delicious! There were many selections for...

Amazing food and scenery. Came for business meeting and felt like i was on vacation. The staff is top notch as well. Every meal was 5-star and very unique. The rooms seemed brand new because they have been so well maintained.

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.
