I planned this trip for our Anniversary but when we pulled upon the place I thought there is no way I am staying here because it did not look like a typical hotel that I am use to. Once we checked in I was hesitant to see the room because the outside looked so old and outdated. I was surprised... More

We stayed at the Evening Shade after visiting Biltmore for the day. My sister and brother in law were with us and this is one of their favorite places in the Mountains. The property is nice and sits right on the river/creek. It has a lot of seating areas and they light a fire pit at night right by the... More

I read the reviews, I looked at the pictures, and based that I booked a room. Upon arriving i found the the rooms were smaller than they appeared in the pictures. They fit two beds in a room that should only have one bed in it. The bathroom you could barely too around in, and I'm not even going to... More

Evening shade is my favorite place to go to unwind, I have never felt more relaxed after going home from a vacation. The rooms are clean, service is wonderful, I always feel at home here.

This hotel is right in Chimney Rock outskirts but the definite draw for us was the backyard. There is a very accessible part of the Broad river that you can swim in a swimming hole (waist deep), climb on rocks, and slide down a part of the rocks like a rock slide. It was amazing. The sounds of the river... More

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful nights at evening shade. We loved the setting with the river sounds on a continuing flow. We were there for our anniversary and had balloons and a card from the staff. The staff were very friendly and great to talk with. We felt like we were part of the family from the time... More

I think some of the reviews are sugarcoated, but the motel needs some serious updating. The location is perfect. You can almost walk to chimney rock downtown. I agree with some of the post that you felt like you went back into time when you first enter the room. The river view and the nice grounds makes up for it.... More

My husband and I spent Easter weekend at the Evening Shade. What a lovely experience! It is located less than one mile from the park entrance on the Broad River. The front is right on the main drive into the village. The park in the back of the facility was beautiful. They had swings, benches, a fire pit which was... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Evening Shade, celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. The staff was so nice, we had balloons and a card waiting in our room. We stayed in the Bear Den room. We loved the privacy of the room, it was decorated very nicely (loved the bear theme) and the room and bathroom was very... More
