Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Happy Mentone! When you walk through the front door of Cool Breeze Cottage, you will see why we’ve been told it’s one of the best views in Mentone. In the summer and fall months, sit on the screened porch or double deck and enjoy the surrounding trees and thirty mile mountain brow views. In the winter, the view opens up to the valley below where you can see and hear the Chattanooga bound trains. No matter what the season, Cool Breeze Cottage has killer sunsets!!

On those chilly mountain days and evenings, enjoy the intimate coziness of the cottage’s rock fireplace with gas logs. If you choose to rough it, there is a rock fire pit out front in the garden.

Inside, Cool Breeze Cottage has charm galore with what we call “rustic luxury”. Have fun discovering all the interesting furnishings, watching three flat screen HD TV’s or using the wireless internet to connect with the outside world. A fully equipped kitchen makes staying at home a definite option; however, if you choose to venture out, the cottage is only steps away from Mentone restaurants, shopping and Brow Park.

It’s been said there’s something magical about Mentone. Once you visit, you will have to come back. We hope you’ll stay at Cool Breeze Cottage and experience our little piece of magic.

About Teresa Stokes

We are a family from Birmingham,Alabama. We have three sons and three dogs.

Teresa Stokes purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Teresa Stokes chose Alabama

We have three boys, 21,19, and 17, so before we went the first time, the obvious questions were....”Do they have wifi?” and “What is there to do up there.” The answers were... “Yes” and “Nothing” because that sounds wonderful to me. Actually, we have found many activities to do together and our sons were just as excited as we were to make the cottage our own. We have hiked out to “Hippie Hole” as the locals used to call it, not accessible by car. There is a very large natural swimming hole with huge rocks and a ledge to jump off of if you are crazy enough, which my boys are. Take your dogs and let them swim with you! Just Google Hippie Hole Mentone and look at the Youtube videos, the Travel and Leisure site, and the Atlanta Outdoor site.

At Christmas time, we went about 30 minutes out in the country to a place called Orbix Hot Glass to blow our own Christmas ornaments. On the way there, I said that this was either going to be one of those things that I never live down and get reminded of every Christmas, or it was going to be one of those great memories that I can pat myself of the back for finding. Lucky for me, it was the latter! It was a great experience. Make sure you are there to watch one of the demonstrations.

Next we are going to check out the night skiing at Cloudmont. I think it is probably a good idea if I just watch at that one. There are several festivals throughout the year that you can find online, as the dates change each year. I never tire of browsing through the little shops in town and eating at Moonlight Bistro and The Wildflower Cafe. Lunch at Twiggs in Kamama is great and you can check out some of the local artists while you are there. One of my favorite places is Miracle Pottery. I am getting quite a collection! The Little River Canyon has numerous activities for the outdoors and the visitor center was very impressive.

What makes this cottage unique

This unique cottage has all the comforts of modern living with (3) HD Flat screen TV's, Wireless High Speed internet etc. , yet, offers a quiet retreat from the world if you so choose. Our pet loves the walks to Brow park and town, both within a stones throw from the cottage! As the saying goes, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were instantly impressed with Cool Breeze Cottage upon arrival. It is so much more than the website illustrates. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, easy walking distance to restaurants, all the amenities (technology!) to make guests comfortable, and such comfortable furnishings. This may be my new "go to" getaway spot. I hope to be back very soon.

A great place for a much needed rest!!

  • 5 of 5

Cool Breeze is a wonderful place to retreat. The view from the deck is beautiful and the house is comfortable with all you need for a get-a-way. This was our second time there and we look forward to going back.

Cozy and comfy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cool Breeze. Wish we could have stayed longer. Weather for August was wonderful. Not real hot. Would stay again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Cool Breeze Cottage was very nice. The owners provided everything we needed and the furnishings were comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch and swinging as well as the deck enjoying the breathtaking view. We felt like we were secluded in the woods but was only one block from everything in Mentone. We had a wonderful week.

Great trip away

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just right for our family of 3. It had everything you could think of and more, like an ice cream maker! We will definitely return!

Lovely spot near town.

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The home had everything we needed and is very cozy. We cooked in one night and found the grill and kitchen adequate. We enjoyed walking to the Wildflower cafe for supper the next night. The location is perfect while still offering an amazing view.

Cool Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice cool break for us. Morning temps were in the mid to upper 60's. The cottage was comfortable and quiet, and very relaxing. A nice getaway from everyday life.
