To secure overnight or dine-in dinner reservations, Evins Mill requires a credit card on file but does not process payment in advance.
Guests must call in a room cancellation seven days prior to their arrival date to avoid a potential penalty. A Saturday room reservation requires for example notification by 5:00 p.m. the preceding Saturday.
For reservations secured less than seven days in advance, guests must call in a cancellation by the end of the following day to avoid a potential penalty. A Saturday room reservation secured the preceding Tuesday requires for example notification by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
In the case of a late cancellation, if Evins Mill is able to re-book the cancelled room, "no harm, no foul." If Evins Mill is unable to re-book the room, it will process the card on file for 50% of the value of the reservation. Guests may apply that 50% payment to a future reservation within the next three months, but only on designated evenings and not more than two weeks in advance.

South Paw Bed & Bath
We have been friends to multiple non-human creatures for many years and, maybe like you, prefer not to board our pets while away. That said, we've also found that not everyone is as fond of our furry friends as we may be. To that end, while we do invite pets onto the property during the day, we do not welcome pets as overnight guests. To that end, we recommend Southpaw Bed & Bath, a pet-boarding & grooming facility less than 10 miles from Evins Mill, owned and operated by a former veterinarian technician. As clients of Southpaw, we speak from experience and recommend them highly. For more information, call 615.597.8252.
