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 Alabama

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.

So peaceful and quiet. For those seeking mtn. streams, bird watching, and fishing this is quit a place. You are just a few miles from 3 splended sites: Desota Falls, Desota State Park and Little River National Park. The cabin is in excellent shape and expect to spend time on it's back porch to relax. Looking forward towards seeing this home again.

Great Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this cabin. The pictures of this cabin do not do it justice. It is large with an enormous dining room table for family meals. We loved the interior and the decor. There are 2 decks, one with a large grill that I sadly did not have time to use. The bedrooms are large. The location is phenomenal. Located on a quiet corner next to the river and one lane bridge, it is very quiet. I would note that the upstairs bathroom is a jack and jill bathroom, as in both bedrooms share it. My family of 5 and my 2 inlaws had plenty of space. I can't wait to come back in the summer.

Exceptional Cabin, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this cabin! It was spacious, had wonderful amenities, beautiful decor, was dog-friendly and had an unbelievable view of the Little River. The owners obviously took great care to make this cabin a spectacular place for a get-away (and there was no cell service! YES!). My husband chose this cabin for a weekend get-away for me (for my birthday) and the dogs. We loved it and will make this a quarterly trip (less than 2 hours from Huntsville) to see the seasons change (colorful fall leaves were fantastic this weekend!) in such a beautiful area.

Peaceful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and myself wanted a weekend getaway to relax and unplug, and this is just the place to do that. The cabin was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The setting on the river was wonderful and peaceful (could have stayed on the screened porch the whole time). Susan Collins (Southern Properties) was a pleasure to work with. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience and we will be coming back and will recommend this place to anyone who wants to just sit back, relax and enjoy nature.

All that....and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this Mentone cabin. It was a few days away without the kids. Cabin it just as described but more. Very large rooms, and very clean. Everything you need to have a great stay is there. We cooked breakfast and had dinner out each night. Both bedrooms are upstairs but it wasn't an issue. We really enjoyed going to the dock and there was fishing rods in the closet to use too. It is quiet, peaceful, relaxing and romantic. The screened porch on the back is great. There was a thunderstorm our first evening there. We sat out on that porch, with the ceiling fans going, and listened to the thunder and watched the rain. It was perfect. The furnishings inside are very nice. Nice stone gas log fireplace (not needed in June/July) with a very large flat screen tv hanging above with dish. The kitchen is not the largest, but very ample to cook anything you would like. It's fully stocked too with pots, pans, and all utensils you need. We had perhaps the best vacation we've had in years. Mentone is the perfect mountain setting if you want to be away from it all without a commercialized setting like Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The drive around the canyon rim is a must too. The owner of this cabin has really done a great job in seeing that your stay is comfortable, relaxing, and peaceful. The property manager is extremely helpful offering advice, directions, or whatever you need to make your stay the best. We just can't say enough good things about this cabin......
