Recent Mentone property reviews

  • MORE THAN MENTONE: Even the teenagers were happy!

    "Just had a glorious week at High Horse Lodge. Favorite things: coffee on the screened porch in the morning, naps in the hammock, the low humidity (we forgot it was Alabama in August!), hikes around the property, lying in the backyard at night to watch the meteor shower, stories told by Steve and Harriet, herding goats, swimming in Little River Canyon and the gorgeous drive around the rim. There is so much to do without spending a dime. A few non-free excursions you may want to consider are: Paradise Garden (Folk artist Howard Finster property/museum) in Summerville, GA; a treasure hunt at Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro; amazing animals at way-more-than-a-zoo Tigers for Tomorrow near Attalla; the old fashioned drive-in at Henegar; horseback riding with loveable but no-nonsense Nancy Smith at Holly Springs Stables (where our 14-year-old would happily give up her cell phone to live full-time). Search online for directions, times and charges for the above. But for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped home with the #1 VRBO hosts anywhere, this is the place. It's CLOSE, but it's not within walking distance to Mentone. But if you're like us, you want to see and do more than just 'downtown' Mentone. In fact, you better book a week so you can have a couple of lazy stay-home days to fish, read in the hammock, and watch the sun set. High Horse Lodge has games, puzzles, books, many kitchen utensils, food staples and condiments, cleaning supplies, towels, blankets, pillows, plus seasonal fresh eggs and garden bounty if you time it right. There's a reason this place is booked solid and all the reviews are 5-star. Book ahead and count the days. Worth every penny and then some. We love High Horse Lodge."

My sweetie brought me here for my birthday and I truly loved it. The quiet nights, fireplace, and hot tub. Thank you for opening up your home for us. We also found your cabin to be very clean!"

  • Fantastic

    "We chose to spend our CHRISTmas at Dusk Downing. From the moment we walked in the front door we were blown away at the amount of room and beauty of this home. It was perfect for our 4 families. If you needed a room for all to be together it had it ,if you wanted to break up into smaller groups, it had that also. This is the first CHRISTmas in over 40 years we have not been at my moms house (now mine). No regrets IT was a very special time. The view was tremendous but the comfort of the home was something very special to us. A big Thanks to the owners for sharing this treasure with others. As we left to go back home we kept feeling like we were leaving a old friend. I live about 30 miles from this house and travel by it often, the memory will never fade. You could not ask for anything more. Except maybe a big screen TV in the living room."

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.
