After having visited the Mentone area for many years, the owners, Claudia and Robert, bought two acres on North Scenic Drive and built the first “MountainWood Cottage”. They broke ground in April of 2016 and the cottage was complete and ready to rent in February of 2017. The first cottage is called “Hitherside”. They wanted to create the ideal cottage by taking notes and learning from their past experiences with vacation rentals in the area. Topping the priority list was putting a king size bed in the bedroom with hotel style sheets and having a decent size bathroom with a shower/ tub combo and adequate space. Seclusion and privacy were also important without being too remote and far from Desoto state park, the falls, Little river canyon and the eating areas in Mentone. It was also essential to build our cottages in an area where WE HAVE CELL SERVICE! Another priority was to make the cottage as energy efficient and eco-friendly as possible. The cottage is heated and cooled with a Mitsubishi mini-split system and the water is heated with an “on-demand” central water heater. The metal roof also provides exceptional insulating qualities.
Claudia purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Claudia chose Mentone
Hitherside was custom built as if we were going to live in it. For your short stay, we want you to feel as if it is YOUR home. Be our guest and enjoy visiting all year round. We manage the property ourselves with the help of an onsite manager that works for us. This is not managed by an internet property management company! Our reviews are REAL and when you call us, you are calling our personal phone. Each season has its own beauty. Winter is a quiet time but you can settle in at night with the fire burning and sleep in the giant king size bed under a warm down comforter. The wind blows cold but there is a quiet beauty in the surroundings. Spring and summer mean everything is green and comes to life again. It’s a great time to hike the woods and visit the parks. Autumn means stunning color and it is probably our favorite times of year in Mentone. We hope you enjoy Mentone as much as we have. As the Irish say: “Cead Mile Failte!”
What makes this Cottage unique
Get away from noise of the world and listen to the wind in the trees, the rustling of the leaves, and the distant train. You will enjoy the feeling of seclusion while being only 1 mile from downtown Mentone. Guests can either drive drive, walk or cycle to the center of Mentone as well as many of the attractions such as Desoto State Park, and Little River Falls. Because of our location you are also only a short distance from Cloudland State Park in Georgia and the Hang-gliding park in Rising Fawn. Chattanooga is only a 45 minute drive with Ruby falls and other attractions. Copyright, all rights reserved, 2018, Eversifi Llc.

What a wonderful weekend in Mentone at the Mountainwood Cottage. It's super convenient to town yet while you're on property, you feel miles away. It's comfortable, cozy and the owner's go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They have coffee and snacks on hand, a picnic basket to borrow for hikes, great outdoor space to hang out and all the info you could ever want on the surrounding area and activities. I've stayed at a bunch of places in Mentone and this is definitely one I would recommend for a couple or small family! Looking forward to our next trip. AA++ Thanks Claudia for a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for all the kind comments Jason! We really take it as a compliment when someone who is a "seasoned" Mentone traveler is happy with our cottage. We try to set the bar higher and we make it our goal for people to feel "at home". We hope to see you again soon!
Thank you again,
Claudia and Robert
Awesome cottage! Owners thought of everything!
This cabin was stocked with everything we needed. Very private setting. The hot tub was very relaxing. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. We will definitely be booking again! Thanks for a perfect weekend!
Thank you Jennifer. So glad you were able to enjoy the "quiet" in the woods. Mentone winters are cold and sometimes rainy but just so relaxing. Happy you enjoyed the R&R. Look forward to a warm weather visit from you!
Thank you again,
We loved the location, style, size, amenities!
Thank you so much! We enjoyed having you. We look forward to your return so you can explore even more of what the Mentone area has to offer during warmer weather. :)
My wife and I stayed at Hitherside at Mountainwood cottages and had a great time. The cottage is clean, decorated beautifully and with everything you would need for a nice retreat in the mountains of Alabama. We didn't know how beautiful it was! Little River Canyon and the falls are awesome in the winter. Claudia sent us information about the restaurants and the things to see inthe area before our arrival. She was very helpful if we had any questions. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Robert! We appreciate the kind comments and hope you will come back again to hike all the great trails in and around Mentone. We look forward to seeing you again!
Great place to get away for a couple days!!
VERY NICE! clean, everything you need!
Thank you! We loved having ya'll ;) and so did Green Leaf! We look forward to next time.
