On Saturday, October 28, Evins Mill hosts its annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. With adult participation in mind, each couple is given at check-in one already cleaned out pumpkin - the canvas for their creative designs! Pumpkins will come in similar shapes and sizes but are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

From 3:00 to the 6:00 social hour, guests will have ample time to carve their pumpkins, which will then be prominently displayed at the Main Lodge before dinner. The guest with the most creatively carved pumpkin as judged by our staff wins a complimentary night stay at the resort on any Enchanted Night.

Chef Evans has designed a fall-themed menu to compliment the occasion...


  • a variety of deviled eggs, cheese & homemade pickles


  • butternut squash bisque


  • roasted beets, chef grown greens & toasts pumpkin seeds


  • Calfkiller beer-braised beef short ribs or
  • citrus-braised duck breast w/ fresh cranberry relish


  • root gratin & braised local mustard greens

On Saturday, November 11, Evins Mill is hosting a double-header of sorts - two fun and back-to-back events that share no natural connection other than they're both going to be informative and entertaining - and involve popular resort attractions.

The fun starts with our first-ever guided tour of the varied flora at the resort's landscaped areas, which include a variety of laurels, abelias & red buds, as well azeleas, rhododendrons, junipers and much more. While all plants & shrubs were selected by Evins Mill Landscaper-in-Residence Eden Cochran, the presentation & tour, which will go from 3:30 to 5:00, will be led by local nurseryman Bert Driver of Bert Driver Nursery, which has advised Evins Mill on and provided it with much of its plantings.

The fun continues with our first-ever Pickers Vodka tasting, hosted from 6:00 to 7:00 by Nashville-based SpeakEasy Distillery and featuring several flavors of their popular Picker's Vodka. Chef Evans will prepare heavy hors d'oeuvres to compliment the tasting, not to mention a scrumptious four-course dinner to follow.

The Plantings & Pickers Package includes...

  • guided tour of landscaped & natural flora at the resort
  • Pickers vodka tasting paired with heavy hors d'oeuvres
  • four-course dinner
  • unlimited access to non-alcoholic beverages
  • exclusive access to the resort's 40-acre property
