Beautiful And Quaint With All Modern Updates On East Fork Of The Little River
About Rob Shaffer
We love the outdoors, and this place we have made our weekend getaway and solace. It exudes peacefulness and was designed to be cozy yet modern in every way, so we could truly relax and be surrounded by nature.
Rob Shaffer purchased this Cabin in 2008

We loved sitting on the porch each evening after days out hiking, eating lunch and visiting the shops and local sights around Mentone area. Far enough away to feel secluded but close enough to get out and about for activities.
Little far from town but very nice setting. Clean and comfy. Side note, stay away from Helena gas station/ diner. The owner is crazy and aggressive. Didn't get a chance to try Wildflower cafe but it looked nice.
It was trickier than expected to find the property. The gravel road to the property is full of huge pot holes and takes almost 10 minutes to get from the driveway to an actual road. Also, in the “amenities” states “canoes/kayaks,” however there are not any at the property. Other than that, it is a good property to stay at if what you want to be somewhat secluded and out of the city.
The road has been scraped now, but with the rain there will always be a few potholes here and there-the price of PRIVACY...we do not provide Kayaks etc secondary to The SHunarrah's of the world, however you can rent them at the contacts on the codes email-the description lists Kayaking and Canoeing as something you can do at this property but does not say we provide the same. Thank you for the Review!
Just perfect for a quiet quick getaway . We never left the cabin....we were able to keep the windows open all weekend. We spent most of the time on the screened in porch listening to music or in the hot tub. We can't wait to come back:)
