Guestbook comments from the manager

WE had a wonderful time! Your cabin is great, especially that screened-in porch. We will definitely be back! The TV really wasn't a big issue, there was so much to see and do. Thank you for the offer of a free night. We will take you up on it. Again, your property is just wonderful!

An Upscale Cabin Near Countless Outdoor Activities

  • 5 of 5

This home was the absolutely perfect place to stay while vacationing around Mentone and Fort Payne. The cabin was incredibly clean and beautiful. It also provided all of the creature comforts you would want, including a full kitchen, a flat screen TV with satellite cable, Wi-Fi, exceptionally comfortable furniture, lots of hot water, powerful air conditioning, ceiling fans, ambient lighting, and so much more. Plus, the house is near parks where you can take in the gorgeous views from different outlooks, hike a wide variety of trails, rock climb, and swim. When staying at this cabin, you're also really close to fun eateries like Wildflower Cafe. If you are looking for a quiet and upscale place to stay during your mountain trip, I highly recommend staying at this home.

Nice Cabin in a Small Town

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 vacationed here for the weekend to attend a Wedding at DeSoto Park. The cabin was large enough to accommodate us when watching TV, eating and sleeping.

The kitchen was well stocked with spices and other common cooking items. There was a gas and charcoal grill available so you could take your pick. The covered porch was very nice and I could imagine using it a little more if our stay had been longer.

Mentone itself is quite small. We travelled to Ft. Payne (20 minute drive) for groceries to stock the fridge. We had issues with the electricity. The power went out about 30 minutes after we arrived and was out for about 30 minutes to an hour. It flickered a bit during the rest of the weekend, but never went out again while we were at the home. Found out the outage was due to a tree falling on the lines, so just mother nature.

Cell phone reception was nearly non-existent. We relied on the Wi-Fi connection and 3rd party apps for communication when at the cabin because calls would drop and texts would fail. I would recommend the owner install a landline for emergencies due to the lack of cell coverage.

Also, the full bath on the main level could use some more lighting because it was very hard to see in the shower.

Overall, the cabin was very nice, well decorated and a delight. With my family size, I prefer cabins/chalets/houses over hotels anyday.
