Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home. Everything about the home was fantastic. The Tea House and the Chapel are really nice. It was fun just to walk around and admire all the plants and flowers. We spent a half day visiting DeSoto Falls and State Park. Very beautiful. Larry was super easy to work with. It was like we'd been friends for years.

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I shared a girl's weekend in this beautiful home. Very peaceful and beautiful decor. The only thing I would change would be to add a DVD player and consider a different seating arrangement in the living room.

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in 5-6 different properties in Mentone. This is far and away the nicest. Larry has done a great job. Inside is beautiful. The gardens and trees around the house give it a secluded feel although it only a short walk to the center on Mentone. We will be back.
