The Evening Shade is now on my "must" list of places to visit again! Charming, restful, clean – and hosts Becky and Gary couldn't have been nicer. Friends have places next door at the Dogwood RV Park, so the accommodations here were super convenient and right on the money. With spectacular river views, this place is simply awesome.

The outdoor atmosphere here is perfect! The room I stayed in was fine for what we needed. I would prefer a room with a bigger shower but that's my only complaint. The management was very nice and accommodating. If you choose to walk to the restaurants & shops it's less than a mile but no sidewalks. I can't wait to...

We book a night stay here passing through Chimney Rock. The furnishing are older but the room was clean. We had a kitchen and our 7 & 12 year old slept on the pull out couch. The back porch was so peaceful with the river. Thee was done traffic noise where the kids were but after climbing all the stairs...

They tried to have a theme in each room. The decor was extremely dated and the linens were old. The air conditioner is loud and the room was a bit musty. That said, the view and the location are excellent. The river is just so relaxing and just a few steps away. You don't go here to be pampered, you...

It may not be all fancy and frills but it is clean, has great zen, and wonderfully quiet at night. Bonfires every night for s'mores and lazy pools in the river to cool you during the day. Close to all attractions. If you're lucky you might see the resident groundhog. It has wi-fi and I recommend the rooms with balconies....

It is an old motel situated right on the river. They have a riverside park that is wonderful. Becky and Gary made us feel welcome. One...

This past week my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Chimney Rock and the trip was perfect due to our stay at Eveningshade Lodge! The innkeepers, Becky and Gary welcome guests as if they are family! Each night on the beautifully manicured river front property , they build a bonfire for guests to cook hot dogs and s'mores....

I have stayed at the sweet little property many times and never any issues. I have written past reviews about the Evening Shade. The owners need to spend money to get the hotel back to what it was. Housekeeping issues , maintenance issues, and outside issues with maintenance in and around picnic area. My family and I stayed one night...

My husband and I stated in Room 4 "River Wilderness" at Evening Shade in March 2016. The room was clean, quaint, and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the queen bed was! The best thing about this motel is the location on the river. Our room had a deck with 2 chairs that overlooked the river, and had a...
