About Susan Collins
I now live in Baton Rouge, La. but was raised only 17 miles from the cabin in Fort Payne, Al. I love the mountain and built the Guest House so I could be close to those who visited to enjoy their company when they are my personal friends and family but to give them their own space. This mountain is the most beautiful place on earth to me.
Susan Collins purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Susan Collins chose Mentone
I originally looked at brow property but when I saw this property I was hooked. 6 acres, huge River Frontage, Dock to load and unload your boat. Close to everything I need yet truly relaxing, surrounded by nature.
What makes this Cottage unique
Both Cabins on the property have large screened in porches furnished to just Rock or enjoy an outdoor lunch or dinner. The grounds are landscaped with Rhododendron, Azaleas, and Dogwood, all natural to the mountain. Your Dog will surely understand that he/she is on vacation with all the squirrels and birds they can chace. You are within minutes of your daily excursion and you will never run out of interesting activities.

Great cabin! Very relaxing and peaceful place to spend the weekend
Awesome place! We’ll definitely be back
Our favorite place was the back porch overlooking the river..... drinking coffee and hanging out, just enjoying the bird calls and the view! Plenty of sleeping space for our whole family at the cost of a hotel room. When you walk in, the cabin smells like wood. It's in a good location fairly close to Desoto Falls (10 min) and Desoto State Park (15 min), as well as Little River Canyon National Preserve (30 minutes). The boat launch is 1 block down the hill, so Kayaks would be a great thing to bring. The only complaint I have is the woodpecker waking me up early on the first morning.... But that's not exactly something the owners can help, haha. We had the kids draw owl faces on paper plates and put them in all the windows and that stopped the woodpeckers. The long table seats 10 with elbow room, and the beds are comfortable.
Thanks for the nice review. I am so pleased when folks enjoy this piece of paradise.
Beautiful and relaxing cabin
We enjoyed our stay very much. The cabin was so comfortable. We loved the king sized beds. Susan Collins was more than
Helpful with our questions and concerns. Will stay here again.
So glad you enjoyed this little piece of heaven. I love it so much and always delighted when someone else does. Please do come back, love having you.
Cabin was nicely decorated. Plenty of room. Walk to river. Had everything we needed .
So enjoy our guest especially when they enjoy this little piece of heaven in the woods.
Get what you pay for. This is a good thing.
The place was a good location, the view of the river is good and the best thing is affordible. If you just want to get away and forget the world and relax this is the place. The beds were good 2 kings, the kitchen could use new frying pans the food sticks. Nice big kitchen table, the furniture was nice, the TV is big enough for the whole family of 8 to watch spread out. The screen porch was nice a big plenty of chairs. The grill is big. The walk to the river could be a little better had to walk on the road with little kids. It's short but a path would better. The ceiling fan in one of the bed rooms still doesn't work. Take toilet paper and paper towels. The cots to sleep on were good for teenagers (was worried about them). No cell coverage and the internet was on and off. When no internet we rebooted the router and it worked again. Susan was quick to respond. All in all it was good not great but we didn't fork out a lot of money so for the value it was good. We would rent again.
Great View and Comfortable
My wife and I, and our golden retriever, had a wonderful stay. The view from the screened in porch, overlooking the nearby river, was outstanding. Everything was comfortable and we had a great time. The home is located a couple of miles from downtown Mentone. So, we were able to enjoy the restaurants and shops in town but were able to go back to a peaceful setting in the evenings.
Scenic Lookout Mountain offers State and National Parks within min of the cabin. Walking trails abound see Little River Canyon, the deepest gorge East side of the Miss. River. Little River falls is one of the most beautiful falls you can view from well designed trails. Wonderful Swimming and fishing in Little River which only 1/2 mile from Cabin opens in to a beautiful lake. Homeowners association stocks lake regularly. The State parks do offer a swimming pool. There are 4 golf courses within a 20 mile radius of the cabin and one of my favorite restaurants in the US is only 30 min away in Trenton, Ga.
