Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We enjoyed dining at Cragsmere Manna for many years before it was converted to a private residence. When presented with the opportunity to own this historic treasure, we couldn't turn it down! We invite you to enjoy this landmark on your next visit to Mentone.

Why the Owner Chose Mentone, AL, USA:
Cragsmere is known to practically everyone who has visited Mentone over the past few decades. Now, you can make it a memorable part of your next Mentone visit. No other property can match the space, sleeping capacity, history, or gorgeous views that we offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Portion of home is a 100+ year old cabin built by a freed slave after the Civil War. Multiple additions were made over the years creating the large property that is now Cragsmere Manor. A guest favorite is the covered gazebo directly on the brow overlooking Wills Valley and miles & miles of beautiful nature.
