Mentone cabin description

Our rustic cabin sits on a beautiful rocky site on Little River's Lake Lahusage, just a few miles out of Mentone at the Georgia line. This is not a typical rental cabin - it's our family getaway in the truest sense. We've opted not to have telephone, television or internet. We actually read books, play board games, relax on the porch, rock patio or dock, watch the birds and squirrels, and swim and canoe in the lake. It's quite relaxing and we invite you to come try it for yourself. We have a double bed in one room and a bunk room with four singles, so it works well for a couple, a family, or a group of friends. Most of the year, you'll want to have the windows open, but for summer's hottest days we have 2 window unit AC's and in cold weather we have a wood stove and gas wall heaters. We've tried to decide what season we enjoy most at the cabin, but we like them all. Each season is wonderful in a different way.

Lake Lahusage is actually part of Little River and was created many years ago by a developer who was building a resort hotel on the lake, but it never materialized. Lots were sold around the lake for individual cottages and now there are some large and very nice homes, some of which are full time residences. But ours is one of the few (maybe the only one) available for short term rental. We invite you to take advantage of this wonderful and little known corner of Lookout Mountain.

                      Mentone is a tiny, but historic, resort community atop Lookout Mountain. It's best known as home to numerous summer camps and Little River winds its way through the area, providing many opportunities for hiking, canoeing and other mountain activities.

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About: We're Jane and Jack Brunson and we live in Elba, AL, which is a 5-hour drive from the cabin, so we don't get to be there as often as we'd like. Jane is from Fort Payne originally, so we enjoy keeping a connection to DeKalb County and letting our four children get to know her hometown area better.

                      Why Mentone:
                      We started bringing our kids to summer camp at Mentone in the early 1990's and really enjoyed the area. Jane was from Fort Payne, but had not spent a lot of time in Mentone. We rented cabins and stayed at the State Park for a few years, and decided it would be nice to have a little place of our own.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      When we were considering purchasing a second home in the Mentone area, we didn't really know about Lake Lahusage. But once we saw the advantages the lake offered, a cabin not on the water was suddenly out of the question. We wanted a small, rustic cabin with a cozy feel to it. The unfinished cedar walls and ceilings in this little cabin would be difficult to duplicate today. It was just big enough for our family of 6, and we particularly enjoy the screened porch and eat all our meals on the porch except during the coldest months of the year. We love taking an early morning canoe ride and usually have the entire lake to ourselves -- except for the ducks and geese. Our part of the lake is quiet and far enough from the highway that we have almost no road noise. It's a peaceful and quiet setting that's getting harder to find. Mentone is a unique place - almost lost in time - and has a pace and attitude all its own. We rarely look at a clock when we're there. We just say we're on 'Mentone time'.
