                                                              My wife and I made our 3rd visit to Rest Easy 02/09 - 02/11 for our anniversary. Everything (but the weather) was great. It is clean, well furnished, and within 2 hours travel time from home. With the rainy weather we especially enjoyed the indoor fireplace. We will return!

                                                              Great place, perfect location

                                                              My mom and I were in town for a retreat and stayed at the cabin. Very comfortable and it’s very close to everything, yet private. We had a great time and would definitely stay again. Susan was very responsive to questions. Thanks!

                                                              Everything I Wanted

                                                              It was hard to leave! I booked this for myself and my dog as a writing retreat. It is perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood on a wooded lot, so I felt secluded, but not isolated. Excellent access to nearby Desoto State Park and Desoto Falls, as well as just a minute or two from downtown Mentone. I'm only sorry that I didn't book an extra day. I will definitely come back, and recommend "Rest Easy".

                                                              Cozy and Comfortable!

                                                              We spent a cold January weekend at this cabin and really enjoyed our stay. The furniture and decor is comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen is well stocked. Had it not been so cold, it would have been easy to take a stroll to the hardware store and beyond. A warm fire in the fireplace topped off our second night! This is a great cabin for a get-away in the charming town of Mentone. And here, you can even bring your 4-legged family member!
