If you are looking for a quick respite from the ever-busy world, unplugging and enjoying time with those you are with, head to Evins Mill in Smithville, Tennessee. It was a short drive from our area but felt like we were tucked away in the mountains. Evins Mill is a cabin-like bed and breakfast. The accommodations were cozy and our cabin overlooked a stream. When we stepped outside we could hear the spillway from the old mill, which created the perfectly peaceful environment for yoga in the mornings. We hiked to the waterfall and splashed around, played Trivial Pursuit, ate delicious food and spent time with family. It was so nice to just get away from so many things. No TV, no phone, no distractions.
