Who We Are

The Evening Shade is a marvelous place to stay! My family and I were here for 3 wonderful nights and had an awesome time. The room was clean and cozy and the managers are very friendly and helpful. You can’t find a better view ANYWHERE in town! We can’t wait to come back and stay again! Thanks Evening Shade for an awesome vacation!

We loved Evening Shade. The cabin was clean and the staff was friendly. The view is AMAZING! Sitting on the swing next to the river enjoying a campfire and sounds of rushing water was the perfect ending to each evening spent there. We enjoyed the quiet, majestic, natural, and endless beauty of the area you are blessed to call home.

We enjoyed our brief stay with you and the river this past weekend. As a young boy my father would take me camping and fishing along the river and as I grew older I spent many hours contemplating inner thoughts along the same roaring rocky banks. You have rekindled my love and appreciation for this river, the land, and the people that care as much as I do. Once again, thanks from the both of us and we will see you again soon!

We had a great stay. We enjoyed how relaxed they made us feel. Just like home. We are definitely coming back. This is one of the best kept secrets, but the word is out now!

What a wonderful place to stay! Quaint and charming with a personal touch!! The décor is lovely, the room very comfortable, and the hosts were just so thoughtful. We had our wedding night here and plan to come back for our anniversary. Thank you for the very personal touch!! We’ll definitely recommend Evening Shade!

Could not have chosen a more beautiful, peaceful location…of course what makes it special are the people. We will be back.  God bless each of you.

Dear Les, Jackie, & Adam,
This is just a note to try and express our gratitude for all of you! The Evening Shade has been special to us for many years and you all have somehow made it more so! Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts for always going above and beyond and extending such warm hospitality to us, our family, and friends! We so enjoy coming to our “North Carolina playground” and bringing new people to share our little slice of heaven! Thank you for making this beautiful place such a special place to come to. We’ll never forget the night we got engaged down by the river and you all are a wonderful part of that memory. Thank you for all that you are and all that you do! Some day you’ll need to come visit Florida!
