This is a secluded bed & breakfast, very relaxing with great food! The staff is great - we always enjoy seeing them again. We return at least once a year without hesitation!

The year 2010 has been quite a busy and draining one for my husband, Alan, and I. In my search for a relaxing place to sneak him away for his birthday weekend, I found The Inn at Evins Mill. We arrived around noon on Friday and got in one of our favorite pastimes - a waterfall hike - before returning to the lodge to check in and clean up. After a relaxing afternoon on the deck, we wandered down to the lodge area for appetizers and a delicious meal. The gorgeous bow on top of this birthday package was the fabulous breakfast buffet with omelet the next morning. We left this visit both rested and renewed from a complete package trip that never required that we start our car from arrival to departure. What more could any busy working couple ask for????

We loved the natural setting and will be back. Enjoyed the porch and rockers, the hike to the waterfalls, and the wildflowers. We live near the Great Smokey Mountain National Park and hike there frequently. This was comparable to a wildflower hike in the mountains.

What a little piece of paradise. We traveled from Nashville for a Friday overnight trip. I wish we would have arrived earlier to do the 20-30 minute hike down to Carmac Falls in the evening but we made it the next morning. We so enjoyed our dinner - Chef Jason is talented and so good with the guests. He checked us in and out as well - really nice guy; so personable. And his culinary skills - wow. Chris was our barman and our server at dinner and also blew us away. He was juggling at least six tables and was so professional and so funny! We really enjoyed talking to him. What a staff they have! The cocktails were great and so was the wine.

After dinner you can walk down to the mill, over the lighted bridge and enjoy the pool, darts and ping pong inside the mill. The stars are so bright there. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio in one of the cushioned porch swings and listening to the water rush by far below the inn. Reading on our room's porch overlooking the brook the next morning was a peaceful interlude before a big, hot gourmet breakfast. Don't miss the pastries. We can't wait to go back.

Absolutely lovely. Quiet, clean, scenic. Rocking chairs, cool breezes, refreshing hikes and good food with lovely outdoor dining. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here & it was memorable.

I've never had any better food, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are comfortable; the setting is beautiful, and the atmosphere is so warm and relaxing. I even had a wonderful massage!

Not only is this one of the most beautiful places you'll get to visit ...say on your road trip to the Smoky Mountains..but its very affordable...and the food is amazing. A "Food of Tennesee" special on a local public access channel was what originally clued me into Evins Mill. At the time we were looking for a place to hold our wedding ceremony & reception... the next weekend ..we visited. I remember leaving the Inn and as my husband saw the look on my face he said, "This is the place, isnt it." Family and Friends who attended the reception STILL talk about the ambiance, the Chicken Parmesan, the AMAZING Brunch the following morning, and what a beautiful place it was to spend the weekend. My husband promises he'll take me back there soon. Im holding him to it. The rooms are clean and comfy and the staff is VERY helpful & friendly.
