Overview

About the property

7BR/4BA, Sleeps 21! Adjoins National Park. Trails / Pond. Lookout Mtn. Cabin

Perfect for large groups that are looking for a secluded, rustic location, with wildlife, beautiful surroundings, direct access to miles of trails, and quick walk to a crystal clear swimming hole. After you spend a day hiking the trails, swimming, exploring the local waterfalls, or shopping, come back and enjoy a relaxing campfire and do some star gazing!

The rural Farmhouse with seven bedrooms, a huge kitchen and a large screened porch, this home is set up perfectly for groups. This 20-acre property adjoins the 14,000 acre Little River Canyon National Preserve / Desoto State Park. After walking out your back porch, passing the volleyball court / playing field / pond, you walk directly to trails that will take you to the Shigley swimming hole on the West Fork of the Little River. The miles of trails run along the Little River canyon rim and offer many areas to explore or just sit and relax while watching the river flow by!

If you want to explore the area, Chattanooga is nearby along with its world class aquarium, Rock City, and Ruby Falls. There are opportunities for zip lines, cave tours, guided night hikes, visiting the Orbix Glass Blowing Factory, horse back riding and more, right on Lookout Mountain. Visiting Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro is a unique experience and only an hour away. Driving 30 minutes past Scottsboro brings you to Huntsville, and the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in the country for your next family reunion, you've found the right place. You won't beat the location or the price!

Family get together July

  • 5 of 5

The owners are absolutely a joy and so helpful. The hike down to the swimming hole is great, the family made the trip three times to see the water. It's just 15 to 20 min walk down a well kept trail. Your not far from Desota Falls which I recommend visiting. The farm house is an old farm house with much charm and huge rooms...you can get lost in the house...it takes a few hours before you know your way around. The family played board games and had a air hockey tournament. No internet and one tv which we thought we would not like but turns out it was a blessing, the family spent time with each other and made memories.

As wonderful as last time

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to Ray and Bobbies place and it was just as memorable as 2 years ago. This time we had a total of 6 families with children at 21 people and fit in just fine. The home still reminded me of my grandmoms house and had that nostalgic, honey feel. The outside yard was a highlight for the kids, allowing them a place to run around and play. I think the beds are newer as they were comofortable and the new living room furniture was great for gathering around the tv or just relaxing. We had a fantastic time and appreciate the opportunity to enjoy this lovely area of Mentone again. The owners were hospitable and just a short distance away in case we needed anything. Thanks Zakary family.

Wonderful

We had a great time enjoying the outdoors and the quietness of the surroundings... seeing deer, hearing a turkey google and sensing the presence of God. We will return.

Absolute fun!!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our 4 families with kids aged 3 to 11. We loved the trails from right behind the back porch! There is a Walmart at 20 minutes- which is convenient. The owners are very gracious. The kitchen is more than well equipped. The rooms were clean and the upstairs kids room was the highlight for our bunch.

Beautiful property and Interesting house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay for a great rate!!! Ray the property owner is extremely helpful and just a genuinely nice person. The house can sleep a lot of people and still allow everyone private space and comfort. The trails, river and view are amazing. Will definitely be back.

Ray, the owner, was eager to help and answer any questions before and or during our stay. I took my College/Career Sunday School class for a winter retreat to the Farmhouse and we had plenty of room for our sessions, sleeping and eating. It is a unique beautiful home. The students loved the air hockey table and various games throughout the house. We even talked about returning in the Spring to enjoy the pond, volleyball court and trails.
