The room was very comfortable and the covered porch area of each Creekside room was extra nice! The dinner was excellent and the berries and meringue was delicious! There were many selections for...

Amazing food and scenery. Came for business meeting and felt like i was on vacation. The staff is top notch as well. Every meal was 5-star and very unique. The rooms seemed brand new because they have been so well maintained.

Who knew so much awesomeness was just an hour southeast of Nashville. Attended a small corporate retreat for 2 days. Meeting facilities are good. Good connectivity. Food is excellent. Ambiance is unmatched. Quaint, cozy. Rooms are comfortable and without TV (welcomed). Game rooms, lounges with TV, bars and plenty of fireplaces. Place would be extraordinary in the Fall. Was cold...

Thank you for your review. I'm very glad to hear you had a favorable experience - and I trust a productive meeting. That's actually a big part of what we do. You are right about the Fall and hope you'll have a chance to see the property again as the leaves change. Thank you again! William

We hosted a company Christmas party this year at Evin's Mill. First time anyone in our party had been to the grounds, and it was perfect in every way possible. The lodging is very cozy, clean, comfortable, and beautiful inside and out. The food was nothing short of amazing....from the gourmet dinner to the sack lunch, the Chef and his...

Joined about 25 or so others for a retreat -- "Story, Song, and Solitude" -- and the setting of Evins Mill was as responsible for the success of the retreat as the leaders and participants. Beautiful surroundings and superb staff.

Our company stayed at Evins Mill for an offsite retreat in November. The experience was noting short of amazing. The Evins Mill staff were attentive, kind and went above and beyond to makes sure we were taken care of.

We were extremely happy to discover Evins Mill for our 4 night family trip this Thanksgiving. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect before we arrived but the best way to describe this place is that it has the feel of a cosy, very comfortable cabin with all the service and fantastic food of a wonderful hotel. We loved all...
