Rachel Neidich-Rook purchased this house in 2013

Why Rachel Neidich-Rook chose Georgia

We love Lookout Mountain and Menton. It is one of the most unique geographical areas in the south east. Our family are avid outdoor enthusiasts and we love the outdoor activities available in this area. There are great hiking, biking, and hunting activities right out the back door of the house.

What makes this house unique

We're right in the middle of it all! And guess what? it's a great price... heck, just because there's wallpaper in two of the bathrooms (still a work in progress) we will offer our house at a competitive price you can't pass up!

Our first visit to the mountains of Georgia

  • 3 of 5

What a beautiful area of the country! We stayed 3 nights and hiked, saw sights, and visited local towns. Our daughter toured Berry College in Rome, GA. The Pocket was one of the best hikes ever! Wildflowers blooming like crazy around a rocky stream bed with a waterfall at the end. Cloundland Canyon State Park was well worth the 30 minute drive, as was the view from Lookout Mountain in Mentone. Lots of pretty waterfalls and mountain views. We enjoyed being able to have a camp fire at the end of the day.

The house was in a good location, very clean, and has a nice layout. The furniture could use some upgrading though. The beds have no box springs, just a thick foam pad over plywood or planks - very low to the ground and not the most comfortable. Same for the living room. Furniture was functional but not comfortable.

The kitchen was adequate - the stovetop is quirky and took awhile to get lit. More silverware would have been nice. We had to wash it after every meal to have enough for the next one. It was nice to grill out and eat on the screened porch.

Be aware - there is no cell service or wifi for many miles! The internet cafe in Mentone was closed. We had to go to Summerville to McDonalds to download some important papers. This means you will not be able to rely on GPS either, so get/take some maps.

Overall a good place to "get away from it all"!

Nice place to check out...

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin! My only suggestions might be to actually have TV service, as the multiple dishes on the house were misleading, and perhaps to add an outside hot tub. We had a great stay, cooked our meals and warmed by the fire. We shall return!

Great location to get away from it all!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the house -- the giant king sized bed was super comfortable and the jet tub was very relaxing. (We did miss having a land line phone and not being able to watch television though...) We loved exploring in Mentone, Ala., as well as a great dinner at Canyon Grill. Very convenient to beautiful Cloudland Canyon and a beautiful drive to get there. Thanks!

Nice cabin.

  • 4 of 5

It's a great location, easy to find, quiet, in the woods, near restaurants and several nice towns. Love that she accepts pets. If you have bad knees, beds are very low to the floor. A few things need some attention but overall a very nice place to stay. The description is very true as is. Would definitely stay again!

My husband and I loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our Christmas vacation. We are outdoors people so the location right next to the wildlife management area was wonderfully peaceful (he wants go back so he can hunt lol). The location was perfect and offered many things to do with only a short drive. We went into Chattanooga a few times and hiked at various state parks. The cabin/house itself is a little rough around the edges but that didn't bother us. The gaps in the railing may not be up to code because a toddler could fall through. I don't really have anything negative to say about this place except be prepared to be totally unplugged from the cyber and cellular world, also bring your own dvds and firewood. We will definitely look into booking it again for Christmas vacation again.
