Evins Mill has been a wonderful experience. I am here on for a work retreat and can't say enough about the quality of all the services, staff, meals and accomodations. Evins Mill is a class act from start to finish. Hike to the falls and enjoy a swim. It's gorgeous!

We just had our class reunion at Evins Mill, and let me tell you, it was our best yet! The dedicated staff made sure we had everything we needed, and food was plentiful and delicious! Thanks to owner William and his team, especially Dorothy, and Chef Jason. I highly recommend the Gentlemen's BBQ. The cash bar was a life saver... More

Stayed at the Evins Mill resort for a destination wedding. Can't wait to go back, great wooded look, large property, hiking trails, hammocks. Staff could not be more accommodating. There was a banquet hall, club room.

The Inn at Evins Mill is a well-run, well-staffed get away location within an easy drive from the Nashville area. This was our 4th retreat here and we always dread leaving because the atmosphere is so peaceful and relaxing and just plain beautiful!

Amazing once in a lifetime experience perfectly complemented by the food, staff, and setting. Our family remarked repeatedly that the staff was outstanding and ready to help in any way needed. The grounds were impeccably kept as were the beautiful rooms and ensuites. And the food... was amazing. The teens enjoyed the game room and watched DVD's in their rooms.... More

I have stayed at Evins Mill twice, both times were lovely experiences. It is amazing the amount of improvements that have been made to the grounds in just the year since my first visit.

From the moment my daughter & I we saw the Evins Mill property, we were in love. She loves autumn in Tennessee, and was captivated by the setting, able to imagine her big day held there.

Recently spent a brief vacation at Evin's Mill.
