Newer 2 bedroom/1 bath cozy cottage in the woods with Hot tub. No neighbors!
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. This is not managed by an internet property management company, property manager or realtor! 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. Wake up to nature not the cabin next door! Nap in the hammock at the pond and hear the pileated woodpeckers laugh and the frogs singing. 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.

Quite & Relaxing
Mentone is a small, quaint community and for me that was great. Our stay at the cabin was great! Very quiet and relaxing and will definitely be a guest again. The only drawback is limited to no internet access which make watching tv a bit difficult. If you are looking for low key, high relaxation and peacefulness, this is the spot for you.
Wonderful experience, amazing cottage!!
My husband and I needed a vacation to just relax. When we booked this cabin, we had no idea of how awesome this cabin actually is. We have never stayed in a cabin quite like this. It has everything you need to enjoy a wonderful weekend away. We loved the hot tub and the 2 man hammock. I have told friends and family about this cabin and we can’t wait to visit again! Thanks for sharing this gem with others.
Sweet cottage to unplug from it all!
Our stay at this perfect little cottage was wonderful! So quiet, peaceful and everything anyone needs for a family getaway. The beds were so comfortable. We spent most of our time at the fire pit outside, telling stories and really being in the moment together. We all enjoyed soaks in the hot tub after a day of exploring the falls and trails - all super close by. So many thanks for all the details - including the cookies and oatmeal! We ate them all! Will definitely plan to come back.
Everything promised and more.
The cabin was everything stated by the owner. The more was the special attention from Claudia. Promptly answered our questions and checked on us after we arrived to make sure we got settled in okay. Thanks for a great way to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary.
It was a great experience.
The cabin was great and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our time in the Mentone area. The people we met were friendly and helpful.
