  • Beautiful Place

    "My husband and I spent five wonderful days at Ritz on the Rocks. The place was spotless and furnishing unique and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable but nothing inside the cottage could even compare to the view! The whole side of the bedroom is glass and the most enjoyable thing was falling asleep while looking out at the lights in the valley and watching fire flies (known as lightning bugs in South Georgia!). Morning coffee outside was so enjoyable....I just could go on and on. We had the pleasure of meeting Tony during our visit. We found him to be very personable, funny, cute and did everything to make our stay pleasant.....bless his heart. We would highly recommend this place and hope to go again soon."

  • Everything and more....

    "We got here on July 4th-our first wedding anniversary-and right away we didn't want to leave! Everything you need is inside. It is so clean and comfortable. The view is amazing. We soaked in the hot tub on July 4th, and watch fireworks all in the valley and mountains! The stone walls inside the cottage are beautiful! The pictures don't do this place justice! It is decorated so nice! it is just a really homey relaxing place! Can't wait to go back again!"

Mentone Travel Tips

Enjoy Mountain Serenity at Mentone Vacation Rentals

Mentone is a sleepy hamlet tucked away in DeKalb County, Alabama. Located on Lookout Mountain, the village was once home to mineral springs that attracted visitors from all over the country. Today, even though the springs have dried up, the magical surroundings still attract travelers who want to escape from city life for a while and soak up nature’s beauty. It’s a quiet location where nature lovers can participate in a range of outdoor activities. If visiting in the winter months, you can hole up in your cabin and simply enjoy the views from your window. Read a book or snuggle up in front of a roaring fireplace with your significant other.

Places to Visit and Things to Do near Mentone Cottages

The De Soto National Park is a pristine wilderness area where you can truly appreciate nature. Pack a picnic and head out to enjoy one of the many hiking trails in the park. Visit the spectacular waterfalls and climb up the slopes to enjoy the beautiful mountain vistas. Alternatively, there are also numerous mountain biking trails that invite explorations. Maps and route guides can be obtained from the local information offices.

The Little River Canyon National Preserve has some impressive viewpoints. A 23-mile route follows the canyon rim which drops off 700 feet to the floor below. The Little River is a crystal clear body of water that is unique in that most of its course is on a mountain top. At points along the route, there are magnificent waterfalls and many opportunities to take photos of the impressive scenery.

Part of Mentone’s charm is its warm hospitality. Enjoy a hearty homecooked meal in one of the local restaurants. Typical Southern cuisine is the order of the day and will have your mouth watering the minute you walk through the restaurant door.

The Alabama Fan Club and Museum is a tribute to the country music group, Alabama. The museum is open daily and has a host of interesting exhibits.

Spend the days exploring the country trails by mountain bike, on foot or on horseback. Be sure to take your camera with you wherever you go. You will want to capture the beautiful scenery on your explorations.

In the summertime, arts and crafts festivals are held in the local park. Good food and entertainment complement a range of stalls offering handmade crafts and other interesting items. For those that collect antiques, you can enjoy browsing the quaint stores searching for that perfect addition for your home.

Traveling to Mentone Vacation Houses

The nearest major airport is Atlanta, Georgia. Regularly scheduled flights are operated by most major North American airlines. If flying into Atlanta, you’ll probably want to rent a car and drive the rest of the way to Mentone. Heading out of Atlanta, you will travel north towards Chattanooga before turning west and crossing into Alabama. It’s a scenic drive and a good idea to have a recent road map with you to ensure that you don’t get lost en route.

Beautiful Vacation Homes in Mentone

Choose from quaint log cabins tucked in the woods to mountain homesteads that offer sprawling vistas from the porch. The emphasis is on comfortable country living and once settled in your rental home, you’ll soon forget about the bustle of city life. Wake up each morning to the sounds of nature and enjoy your breakfast on the porch as you breathe in the fresh mountain air. Most cabins are large enough to accommodate families with spacious living areas and bedrooms. Kitchens are generally well equipped and food supplies can be bought from the local grocer.
