“Wedding November 11, 2012”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

I can't begin to tell you how awesome this place is . First may I say the staff is incredible, the food is amazing , and the location is just perfect. My husband and I live in Florida but we reconnected after 18 years in Tennessee , so we decided to marry in TN. We first came to Evins Mill in Feb 2012, we met with William Cochran and told him we were looking for a Wedding Venue - he made arrangements so that we could have dinner here. The food was our deciding factor - we decided to get married here . Dorothy Knipfer is an amazing wedding coordinator , we had to plan our wedding in TN from FL she helped in so many ways - our wedding was a fairytale with horse carriage and all . The weather was beautiful and we married down by the water. I can't stress enough how amazing this place , everytime I look at my wedding pictures I want to do it all over again. The waterfall is breathtaking- if you do the hike not too bad. This is definitely worth every second and every penny . Thank you again Evins Mill you made my dream fairytale wedding a reality . I will be back - maybe for Annivarsery ;) God Bless

We only had the opportunity to stay one night but it was wonderful. From the welcome to the set dinner, which was superb, to the most amazing breakfast and a tasty packed lunch to see us on our way, really good value for money, beautiful setting, welcoming and a truly wonderful experience.

The stay at Evin's Mill was the highlight of a very amazing, fun trip to Tennessee. The food, the Southern hospitality, the rooms were all wonderful. I would highly recommend Evin's Mill for a vacation destination. We only had the opportunity to stay 1 night, I didn't want to leave!

Room Tip: Every room is nice with the sound of running water from the stream and rocking chairs on every porch...

Our single night’s stay came with a truly fantastic 4 course meal, filling breakfast to fuel us for the hikes, and sack lunch/snacks to picnic at Carmac Falls – no food planning whatsoever required on our part. The room was clean and comfortable, the main lodge has cozy common areas to enjoy the fireplaces and play nostalgic board games, and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The gorgeous property is littered with swings, hammocks, benches…and the various viewpoints of Carmac Falls were stunning. Highly recommended for a quick getaway.

We just had our daughter's wedding at the Inn. We can't say enough good things about the Inn! The food was superlative, the service was outstanding, and the wedding coordinator was indispensable. The site was gorgeous- can't wait to see how the wedding pictures turn out! The rooms were exactly right for the setting- with nice amenities.

I can't get enough of this place. Warm and cozy atmosphere with an attention to detail. For my husbands birthday I requested red velvet cake. They make small red velvet cakes for everyone dining there that night. Caution: you may have ESPN and golf channel withdrawals, but it will pass as you hike, rock, and relax at the Mill! For my staff retreat they did an "appetizer" dinner for us one evening because we couldn't bear to not try them all. We were all delighted ...I suggest getting there before dark...and on time for dinner.

Overall, we had a nice stay here for the Calkfiller dinner a few weeks ago. The grounds are very nice, the food is excellent, and the service is good too. I loved the bacon at breakfast--might be the best bacon I've ever had.

My only complaint was that the rooms (for the price), leave a little to be desired. They smell funny (so much so that the Inn has put air fresheners in every room that make them smell a little like a truck stop bathroom). Also, the shower in our room did not drain well, so after about 1 minute in the shower, the tub portion had about an inch of standing water in it. Maybe that was why our shower was mildewy?
