About Rob Shaffer

We own and operate several properties in the Mentone area and love sharing this place with others! This cabin is one of our favorites to visit when we hike or want to stay close to mentone and cloudland park, it is my sons favorite cabin to fish from because it is on deep water with a ton of fish. My wife and I love it because it is so cozy and has a bungalow feel.

Rob Shaffer purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Rob Shaffer chose Mentone

We Love Mentone and everything about it, this house is close to everything in the area you will want to do, and you can fish off of the dock or canoe the river from your back porch!

What makes this cabin unique

Secluded, deep water for canoe/kayak, fishing, swimming. Quaint and Fully appointed, one of the cutest cabins around.

Lovely cabin on the river!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights at this comfortable cabin 5 miles from downtown Mentone. We were very happy to be able to include our two small dogs on our trip. We cooked one meal there, and ate in local restaurants for the rest. This cabin is on a very large lot on a peaceful, gently-flowing river (at least, while we were there; I understand that the river can change based on rainfall). We were pleasantly surprised to find Canada geese both flying overhead, and swimming up and down the river. They were beautiful to watch. There was a pair of blue herons that frequented the dock area. We also saw ducks and rabbits. It seemed like we were the only people within miles, surrounded by the woods and water. There was a hot tub which was hot and bubbling, waiting for us when we arrived. The beds were comfortable, and the sheets were some of the softest I’ve ever felt! There is a gas log fireplace and a large TV with satellite Direct TV service. There was no cell reception at the cabin, with no text or internet function, which was frustrating. But I could get a signal in town. The lot at the cabin is securely fenced-in. There is quite a lot of deck area as well as a screened-in porch. Everything was scrupulously clean and neat. We will definitely stay here again!

We had a very enjoyable time at the Shire, the state park, hiking, and loved our repelling and rock climbing experience with True Adventure Sport!
