I can't begin to tell you how awesome this place is . First may I say the staff is incredible, the food is amazing , and the location is just perfect. My husband and I live in Florida but we reconnected after 18 years in Tennessee , so we decided to marry in TN. We first came to Evins Mill...

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...

We just had our daughter's wedding at the Inn. We can't say enough good things about the Inn! The food was superlative, the service was outstanding, and the wedding coordinator was indispensable. The site was gorgeous- can't wait to see how the wedding pictures turn out! The rooms were exactly right for the setting- with nice amenities.

I can't get enough of this place. Warm and cozy atmosphere with an attention to detail. For my husbands birthday I requested red velvet cake. They make small red velvet cakes for everyone dining there that night. Caution: you may have ESPN and golf channel withdrawals, but it will pass as you hike, rock, and relax at the Mill! For...

Overall, we had a nice stay here for the Calkfiller dinner a few weeks ago. The grounds are very nice, the food is excellent, and the service is good too. I loved the bacon at breakfast--might be the best bacon I've ever had. My only complaint was that the rooms (for the price), leave a little to be desired. They...

My wife surprised me with a weekend at Evins Mill for our anniversary. I had heard good things about it from co-workers a couple of years back, but had not mentioned it. (She actually researched B&B's in TN and found it.) I could reiterate all the things in previous very-good to excellent reviews, but here are my observations: The setting...

We spent a Saturday evening in one of the upper floor rooms. It was a very refreshing getaway. It's not far and a very easy drive. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The location is beautiful - we would highly recommend the trail that leads to the falls. It's a bit steep in spots but the view when you...

My wife and I researched opportunities near Nashville, TN to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We decided to stay at the Inn at Evins Mill. What a great decision! We were more than pleased by the courteousness and attentiveness of all the staff. The food and service were spectacular. Gourmet coffee in the room, beverages and snacks available all day, and,...
