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.

Beautiful setting, but the cabin needs a little tlc.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was wonderful for the most part, it just needed cleaning...there were dead bugs that hadn’t been swept up. The ceiling fan in the first bedroom apparently doesn’t work..we tried everything. The K-Cup maker was sketchy at best. Showers were not even lukewarm Sunday morning, and they weren’t taken back to back. The dishes weren’t cleaned well. Despite the list, we really had a wonderful time....especially in Mentone.

Owner's Response: Lisa thank you for your feed back we are addressing the ceiling fan, K cup pot and hot water We try to check the dishes but unfortunately if the renters wash and put up sometimes we miss those. We hope you had a pleasant stay in spite of these issues and would love to host you again.

Charming Cabin with Beautiful Scenery

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin! We stayed here the weekend of our daughter’s wedding. The only complaint we had was that the WiFi did not work and there was no cell phone service on the property.

Great place for rest and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect, has a rustic feel with all the conveniences of home. Off season and leaves were not yet in full color...perfect spot to "get away". Would not be ideal with limited mobility. Bedrooms upstairs and lots of steps, flagstone, and uneven topography...but that all adds to the beauty!

A Great Getaway - Alabama's Gatlinburg.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
