My daughters and I spent a night in Chimney Rock to reconnect and have some outdoor time together. Evening Shade Motel was the perfect place. The owners are so friendly and accomodating. The location was perfect and the river by the motel is amazing. Beautiful. Our room was sufficient. A bit outdated and needed to have a deep clean, but we enjoyed every minute of our time there. Thanks for the memories!

We recently went here within 2 weeks of each other because it is such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The river runs right behind the property so you can let your cares roll on down the river! We staying one night both trips because it is a short distance from Gastonia. I would highly recommend Evening Shade to everyone. Nothing fancy but very clean and each room us designed in a different theme. Love it! Linda and Harry are awesome.

We started by booking the Lazy Lodge so we'd have a kitchen and base of operations. Then, we were able to add regular rooms for additional bunk space as needed. The riverside park was a fantastic place for the kids to romp while we grilled or just relaxed. The owners were friendly and all our needs were met. This place accommodated our party of 20 seamlessly and affordably!

We booked the Bear Paw room #11. Nice room with a beautiful view of the river from the porch. The sound of the river at night was peaceful! The Evening Shade is close to everything in Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The best part of our stay was the hospitality of the managers Harry and Linda! They were extremely accommodating and friendly. Give them a call and book your next adventure!

Lodge was very quiet and cozy. Amazing to watch the rapids and have a view of Flag Rock. It is close to restaurants, Chimney Rock State Park, and amazing hiking trails. I would recommend this place. The rooms are clean and have a cabin feeling. Great customer service as well! We will be back for sure!
