Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, (sleeps 4-6)

Whether you come to relax, browse through quaint shops, or explore the natural beauty of Mentone, Chestnut Oaks is the perfect getaway for you.

Our cottage, nestled on the west brow of Lookout Mountain between the historic town of Mentone and Desoto State Park, has a wrap-a-round porch with rockers to enjoy the breathtaking view.

Even though our cottage is equipped with satellite TV which means you won't miss your favorite ball game in the fall, most of you will leave it off to enjoy your restful surroundings. The large porch is the perfect place to enjoy the cool shade of the trees in the summer and colorful fall. The winter months reveal the beauty of the valley below and the ridges in the distance.

Family, friends, or just the two of you can enjoy the rustic pine paneled 'gathering room' where you can read books, play cards or board games, watch TV, or cook up something is the fully equipped kitchen. On a chilly day enjoy a fire in the gas log stove on the stone hearth. There is a small stone patio with a charcoal grill for your cookouts.

The two bedrooms each have a queen sized bed with linens and warm comforts. Each room has storage space in chest of drawers and good closet space. There's a cot in one bedroom. The sofa opens to sleep two if needed. The two bathrooms are equipped with towels, tissue, and hand soap.

The cottage is located 4.6 miles from downtown Mentone and 2 miles from Desoto State Park. Some of the many activities available for you include incredible water falls, hiking, horseback riding at the Dude Ranch, snow skiing at Cloudmont, and golf at Lil Mole Run. Go to Desoto State park or the Canyon Center for more information on events provided. Try the shops in Mentone. Don't miss the antiques at White Elephant, the art at Kamama's, or the pottery at Miracle Pottery.

If you don't want to cook at the cottage, try some of the wonderful restaurants in Mentone. Some of our favorite eats are found at Wildflower Cafe, J. Spencers, Moonlight Bistro, Mentone Springs Hotel, and special treats at Kamamas.

About Susan Collins, Southern Properties Agency

My husband and I love the Mentone area, and in the past we enjoyed staying in rented cabins and the state park. We live 2 hours away, and in 2005 we purchased a cabin of our own on the west brow. We enjoy the area so much, we purchased land and built another cottage for renters and 'spill over' room for our family gatherings. Our cottage is managed by Susan Collins with Southern Properties Agency.

Susan Collins, Southern Properties Agency purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Susan Collins, Southern Properties Agency chose Alabama

Several years ago my husband and I fell in love with Mentone and this area of Lookout Mountain. We love the West brow view with its beautiful sunsets and distant sounds of the trains traveling in the valley to Chattanooga. In 2006, we purchased land directly across from Comer Boy Scout Camp on Desoto Parkway (County Road 89) and built our Chestnut Oaks in the quaint Mentone style on the edge of the west brow.

Beautiful well maintained cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best cabin we have stayed in. Beautifully decorated, clean and peaceful. Close to DeSoto Falls, Little River Canyon and Ft. Payne. The scenery is amazing. We were able to watch fawns and baby deer come out of nearby woods and feed in the field across the street from us. We loved our stay and will definitely be returning in the future.

Surprisingly spacious and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

I had booked this cabin for my son, his wife and their four small children from Cincinnati. The cabin was wonderful! My daughter-in-law was very happy with the spaciousness of the bedrooms, the openness of the kitchen/living area and the huge porch. Our family gathered there a couple times while they were there and found plenty of room for visiting inside and out. The cabin is welcoming and beautifully decorated. It is a place they will want to stay again. And, I will be recommending it to others for a pleasant place to stay in Mentone.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by this home. Loved how the family room and kitchen were together. The home was very clean and comfortable. Sitting on the porch in the rain was so relaxing! We are a family of four and had plenty of room. If you plan to cook, bring a big pot and strainer. The cooking vessels at the home were too small to cook for my bunch. We would totally book this property again.

Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Since I was looking for rest and relaxation, it was not a problem that there were downpours of rain through most of our stay. The cabin is cosy and nice to weather the rain. Despite very hard rain, we could still sit on the back porch. Since we wanted to do a lot of cooking, we had to make do some with the cooking utensils that were present. My guess is people don't want to cook on vacation like I do. It's a small thing, but I would like to see more of the view from the brow and the forest is pretty dense at this location. Would be nice if they would thin a bit so you can see more....but that's a very minor complaint for an overall great stay. And most important, the cabin and porch were very clean.

Cozy retreat

My family and I recently stayed for a few days here at Chestnut Oaks Cottage in Mentone, AL. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay together. Everything we needed was provided, and we found it clean and comfortable. Thank you for allowing us a place to withdraw and refresh.
