Nice cabin but left disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Initial impression of this cabin from the outside was a little disappointed. It is located on the main road (albeit a more quiet main road), and the outside wasn't that impressive. But, the inside looks much nicer than the pictures appear on the website. We did enjoy the convenience of being a few minutes drive to the falls, the park and town. The cabin was clean and well-appointed. We enjoyed having DVR to record movies to watch at night after a day of hiking. Now for the negative...the fireplace. We tried 3x to make a fire but each time the smoke billowed into the room. The flue was open and we tried every orientation of wood to make a successful fire. Each time we had to send the kids outside while we aired out the smoke from the room. We tried buying dry wood from the store but this didn't make a difference. I called Susan the second night to ask if there was a trick to making the smoke go up the flue, but she didn't have much to offer. Each night we struggled to sleep due to the smell of smoke in the cabin. All of our clothes reeked of smoke when we got home. I emailed Susan to express my disappointment when we got home and request some form of refund for a portion of the stay. This was not given due to the next renters not having issues with the fireplace. So, did she not believe us? I was disappointed in the way this was handled. We will not be staying again due to this issue.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great location to Mentone, Little River Canyon and Desota Falls. We had 3 couples stay for the weekend and the house was the perfect size for us to have our own space but also be able to talk, eat and enjoy football on Saturday afternoon after spending the morning/early afternoon exploring.

Place was great. But was our third choice.

  • 4 of 5

The first place we booked we found out was not available for the 2nd night of our stay after we already paid. Home Away only wanted to refund half our money for that. Susan Collins was great. She made them give us a total refund except for the $32 booking fee which she sent me a check for herself.

The 2nd cabin we booked turned out to have bum furnace. We finally were able to get one that was just being set up for rental. This was great. Our hosts the Vanderhoots were great.

The house at 80 Huron in Mentone. It was perfect. We loved the big rooms. Beds were great. Big fluffy towels. My husband liked the Starbucks coffee. We only had one complaint though. The TV should be dropped down to the mantel. It’s really to small and too high for that room. Everything else was great though. A second TV could be added to that other big room as well.

My husband daughter son-in-law and I had a great time in Mentone and surrounding area.

We did think that Home Away should have offered us a discount for the trouble we went through to get our cabin. The one we were in had no hot water in one bathroom until our 2nd day. We were going to try and stay in the one with no heat but the weather turned to cold for that.
