About Michelle Mancuso

My home is in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but quickly fell in love with the Mentone/Lookout Mountain region. I never tire of the beauty or the people and I hope you fall in love too.

Michelle Mancuso purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Michelle Mancuso chose Mentone

We have traveled to Lookout Mountain for many years and decided we wanted a vacation home in this unspoiled area. It is so convenient to many other destinations and we often have intentions of using Hawk's Nest Hideaway as the headquarter for further adventures, but we end up falling in love with what the area has to offer in views and outings so we stay and never venture any further than a days drive away. Any time of year, any season we have never been disappointed.

What makes this cabin unique

This area is unique in that there is a little known fact that Little River Canyon is the deepest river canyon besides the Grand Canyon the USA and the river flows entirely on the top of the mountain. This area is so pristine, clean, uncluttered and unique. You will truly fall in love and want to return many many times. I welcome you and your family to my home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home. We married in Mentone and we come back every year for our anniversary. 6th year now. We have stayed in several different places but think we have found the "ONE" from now on. Great place to reconnect and leave behind all the worries of everyday life. We hate to leave.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Hawk's Nest is a BEAUTIFUL getaway! The Cabin was so peaceful. It was so nice to have "no cell service". The home ( that's what it felt like) was very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was perfect. The scenery was AMAZING! My wife and I enjoyed being in God's Great Outdoors. The creek was so soothing. The accommodations were perfect.The area was also beautiful. We will DEFINITELY be back! Thank you once again for an AWESOME experience!

Scenic getaway

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW! The pictures do not do justice to this incredible oasis in the woods. The backyard is absolutely lovely with varied levels of seating. The swing by the brook was magical and soothing. My friend and I enjoyed sitting on the decks nightly and just gazing at the stars. We did venture into nearby parks for hiking. Alabama has much to offer and we will come back to experience more. One of the nicest places I've rented. If you're looking for a place to chill, relax, enjoy nature, and have a wonderful time; this is the place!

BEAUTIFUL & PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a weekend at Hawk's Nest Hideaway and enjoyed how peaceful it was to be inside or out. The house was decorated beautifully and was equipped with everything we needed. The deck and porch were perfect for sitting outside and enjoying nature. It rained an entire day and night we were there, so the creek completely filled and was so soothing to hear when sitting outside. The hot tub was enjoyed by the kids and adults. My husband and youngest daughter did a bit of fishing in the pond.

We were just a short drive from the shops in Mentone and also close enough to drive to Desoto Falls and Little River Canyon Falls. We saw the falls the day before the rain and went back to both the day after the rain and were amazed at the change! They were so pretty!!

Michelle was amazing to work with! Her responses were very quick and she was so accommodating. We hope to visit again and would definitely recommend Hawk's Nest. Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your treasure!

Wonderful girl's trip!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!! Everything was spotless and smelled fresh!!! The hummingbirds on the back porch were a pleasant surprise while enjoying morning coffee! The Wildflower Cafe and the Green Leaf Grill were excellent places to eat!! Also, we were so close to Desoto Falls for some light hiking! Precious memories were made and we will be back! Thank you!!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were totally impressed with the property. The website specified that the owners wanted the property to be clean and fresh for each guest (reason for not allowing pets), and it was EXACTLY that! Very clean and fresh! So glad to have the gas grill - used it both nights! Our grandchildren loved the pond and the creek, my husband was happy to have a recliner in the living room, and I really enjoyed the hot tub. Will definitely be back!
