I have stayed at Evins Mill twice, both times were lovely experiences. It is amazing the amount of improvements that have been made to the grounds in just the year since my first visit. I loved seeing some of the same faces this year as last (Tina is so hospitable and helpful). That says a lot about this place, both...

Hello from Evins Mill. Thank you so much for your continued patronage - and for taking time to post a review here! I'm encouraged to hear that you noticed some of the upgrades we've made to the property this past year and that you also noticed some things that haven't changed, like Tina! Thank you again! William

From the moment my daughter & I we saw the Evins Mill property, we were in love. She loves autumn in Tennessee, and was captivated by the setting, able to imagine her big day held there. We said "Alright, if the food is even moderately palatable, we're in!", ...then the food blew us away! We booked for the whole weekend,...

Recently spent a brief vacation at Evin's Mill. The place has good qualities, but is very overpriced for what you receive leaving us feeling quite cheated and disappointed, and we would certainly never go again. We stayed in Solstice - room and bathroom quite basic and very small (some woodsy details but overall very similar to a Holiday Inn or...

Thank you taking time to share your observations, though I of course regret that your experience and sense of value did line up with your expectations or with the experiences of so many of our other guests.

First time staying at Evins Mill to celebrate a birthday. The accommodations were lovely and so peaceful. Carmac Falls is spectacular and a must see. The service and staff friendly and welcoming. The food alone was worth the trip. Memorable weekend. We will be back!!

We were in the area and decided to try Evins Mill for a night. WOW. The dinner was delicious. The tomato soup, grilled salmon, and chocolate torte were excellent. The room was immaculately clean and the luxury linens were very comfortable. After a gourmet breakfast we hiked to the waterfall--it is well worth the effort! The trail and waterfall is...
