Southern hospitality with warm and peaceful surroundings. Not new but clean and serene. Wonderful management service. I Recommended it if you are looking for a lodge by the river and rocks with the sound of the rushing river, lovely landscape and a down-home feel.

Evening Shade is a very Warm and Cozy place to stay. We spent 3 nights there and didn't want to leave. The views of Chimney Rock and the River are right outside your back door and possibly your window depending on which room you get ( we had room 3). We had a small and adequate kitchen. The room was... More

I've been coming up to this area for years but have actually never stayed overnight. My fiancé has never been to the area before and I planned a surprise trip for his birthday, including an overnight stay. I had no guidelines as far as choosing a place to stay, but went with The Evening Shade since it was closest to... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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....
