We have dined at Evin's Mill on several occasions for dinner, breakfast, and one of their special brunches. The food and service were wonderful. Great ambience during the winter with a roaring fire and during the spring or summer with a walk to the beautiful waterfall located on the property. A lovely setting for sitting on one of the porches... More

We got married at Evins Mill on May 25th, 2014. The place is beautiful. The staff is super nice and attentive and courteous. The cabins are very cute and very clean and nice. The food was amazing! All of our guests had a wonderful time. We plan to be back for our anniversary next year.

My husband and I spent one night there and were in awe from the moment we walked in the door. The staff was excellent and attentive and we were made to feel like we were the only ones there. Both trails were fun to hike and the waterfalls were beautiful. Lastly, the food was excellent. Definately worth the money and... More

My husband and I spent the past weekend here and had a wonderful stay and just about 1 1/2 hours from Nashville. We planned to stay Saturday night but was able to get away Friday night. We called that evening and they gave us the last room and we were able to join them for dinner. We felt welcomed with... More

I recently spent a night at Evins Mill with friends. While it was cool and drizzly outside, we were warm and cozy. the food was amazing and exceeded everyone's expectations. Everyone said how great they slept. I can't wait to go back and explore the grounds further -- it was so relaxing - I will be back with family soon!

We had such a nice experience at Evins Mill. Spent two nights there through Thanksgiving. The food was delicious, the staff friendly, and the hikes amazing! The rooms are cozy and rustic. Ours overlooked a waterfall and the view was awesome. We plan to return in the spring.

We stayed for one night, and hope to go back the next time we're in the area. The dinner they served was excellent, as was the breakfast served the next morning. They even packed a box lunch for us to take along as we headed for home the next day. The grounds were quite scenic, though anyone with mobility issues... More
