Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for sharing the comforts of home. Being 'Down Home' refreshed our senses & rejuvenated us. We are so thankful to enjoy the fresh air, scent of pine in the cabin, mountain breeze as it ruffles leaves, listen to the birds sing, hear a woodpecker, relax in the hot tub, wake up to the bright sun shining through the trees…Ahh—the beauty of living at its best!

I traveled to Mentone a number of years ago to escape the brutal summer heat and humidity of SW Florida. My handicapped daughter and I stayed at this delightful cabin and to stay we were pleased would be an understatement of all time. Being that my daughter's activities are limited, we none-the-less found the experience to be the best we ever had. We hiked around the property where the wildlife was abundant. I've never seen so many deer in my life. The screened-in spa was wonderful. The weather, cool fresh mountain air was invigorating. The trips to Desoto Falls and Little Canyon were fun. Wildflower Cafe was amazing. The cabin itself was the biggest pleasure. Every need was anticipated. It was immaculately clean and comfortable. We sat on the porch and completely were lost in the grandeur of nature. Thank you for one of the most relaxing and rewarding experiences of all time for us. We are returning to Mentone. (The availability on this cabin needs to be updated). I highly recommend this listing for value and satisfaction!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved your cabin. It is very comfortable and relaxing. We found everything we needed. The location to the park is great. Very romantic getaway. 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!

Nice and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family needed a nice weekend away from it all. This cabin was just what we were looking for! We liked being close to Desoto State park for the hiking trails. Mentone is a beautiful town just a short drive from the cabin.
