Very sweet, cozy cottage for Easter weekend
We stayed over the long Easter weekend with our 3 small boys and 2 puppies to spend some family time away hiking, watching movies, decorating eggs and visiting some of the local spots. We loved playing hide and seek, shopping in the unique town of Mentone, AL nearby and watching the stars at night after a gorgeous sunset. We would visit again and recommend this farmhouse retreat.
Overall, our stay was exactly as described and just what we were looking for.
This is a fully equipped farmhouse with everything you would need. There’s plenty of firewood, cozy beds and blankets, a large kitchen with all the necessities, large tv screen, friendly neighboring dogs, and lots of country charm
My wife and I loved it!
This is a true/authentic farmhouse experience. If you want privacy and solitude you can’t go wrong here. Very private yet very convenient to nearby towns. This reminded me so much of my Grandmother’s home. If you want to just get away and relax without the chaos of everyday life, then the farmhouse is for you. The owners left very good instructions about everything and we had no issues. Plenty of wood stacked on the porch for those cold days and nights! Loved it!
Great location for sight seeing in AL, GA and TN!
Property itself is beautiful and charming but not a restful night.
The property is beautiful and the house is a charming old farmhouse. But the bathroom had spider webs with spiders in the corners and the shower curtain had mold growing on it. This was disappointing after a long day of hiking and just wanting a clean shower. The worst part however was the dog who greeted us when we arrived. He barked at us but soon calmed down and was very cute and friendly. But 6-7 times during the night he was howling and barking furiously as if chasing something outside. It jarred us awake and would last 5 minutes or so each time. Super loud and impossible to sleep through. We had a very rough night and were not rested to enjoy the next day.
Beautiful and cozy
Lovely, quiet stay... only glitch was we blew a fuse and couldn't find the fuse box. The home is cozy and the property is gorgeous.... would stay again.
