Part of our Creek Side accommodations, the six Evergreen rooms are accessible only by foot via a broad boardwalk from the Main Lodge, where guests arrive and park. Evergreen rooms are similar to the Mountain Laurel rooms above them in essentials: size, decor, layout, king-size bedding, private bathroom, monitor/DVD (movies only, no programming), high-speed wireless internet, exterior entrance & covered decks with creek side views. But they do not feature a few of the "whistles and bells" associated with Mountain Laurel rooms, such as vaulted ceilings, mini-refrigerators or higher elevation views. While guests are invited to arrive as early as noon, the published check-in time is 4:00. Exclusively for guests staying Creek Side, Evins Mill offers limited bellhop service - from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on day of arrival and from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on day of departure.
For those with mobility issues, it should be noted that all Evergreen rooms involve more than a few steps to access, some more than others. Evergreen rooms in the Lockhart guest house are closest and require the fewest steps, with a 15-foot elevation change & 26 steps to navigate over a 50-foot expanse. Evergreen rooms in the Lawrence guest house feature a 25-foot elevation change & 42 steps to navigate over a 150-foot expanse. Evergreen rooms in the Webb guest house are furthest and require the most steps to navigate, featuring a 35-foot elevation change & 58 steps to navigate over a 250-foot expanse.
