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 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.
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.
Beautiful setting, but the cabin needs a little tlc.
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.
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.
The views were amazing its overall my favorite cabin and I’ve been to several but this is my favorit
Everything was clean smelled great everything worked properly overall it’s a wonderful place to stay cabin is beautiful and so is river right outside to go fishing in it’s my favorite and I’ve stayed in several cabins
Charming Cabin with Beautiful Scenery
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!
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!
So glad you enjoyed your visit. Thanks Chris Nichols
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.
