Little River Canyon, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi river, is only 1 mile away. Our house is secluded deep in the forest and overlooks Shinbone Valley from atop Lookout Mountain bluff in northeast Alabama. DeSota State Park and Mentone are a short drive away. Hikes in the canyon, swimming in the river, and viewing the waterfalls are very close. Rapelling, spelunking and kayaking in the canyon for the adventurous!! Ralphs gas station/grill 3 miles away great burgers!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Married with three children in their 20's. Love the outdoors - enjoy the quiet panorama from the deck and the proximity to so many activities at this site. Live on the flat, hot coast, and this is a cool getaway for us. All activities very different than we have access to at home; great experience for kids (and future grandkids!).

Why the Owner Chose Fort Payne:
Enjoyed vacationing in the Smokies as a child, yet the crowds and distance turned us off as adults. This place is very secluded and quiet, an amazing house on the bluff of Lookout Mtn, yet still easy driving distance for us. Lots of deer and turkeys; you can hear Little River Falls when the water is up! So many outdoor activities so close..

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Quiet that is pierced only by the sounds of the hawks and crows; the huge picture windows that set the valley and mountains; the cool nights; the coyotes singing in the woods around the house in the dark nights of winter; the amazing stars; the fall leaves shimmering in the early morning sun; the football games from the deck in the snow; the cicadas singing in the trees on warm summer nights.
