About Susan Collins

My wife and I bought our beautiful second home as a vacation home to get away from the hectic pace and stress of our jobs. That was 10 years ago. Now we have 2 beautiful daughters, the focal point of our lives. This is part of the reason we decided to rent our home out for others, 4 years ago, for others to enjoy the home as well as we simply don't have the opportunity to get up to the home as often as we would like. We are a family of four and do utilize and enjoy the property, unfortunately, not as much as we would love to as we moved to a different part of Atlanta which has increased the commute to the home by an additional hour.

Susan Collins purchased this Cabin in 2008

Why Susan Collins chose Mentone

My wife and I bought our vacation home near my cousin as a way for us to "get away from it all" and also be close to family. It was the perfect getaway from the hectic pace of our daily jobs and being only an hour and a half from our home, Mentone offered the R&R we needed to just get away from it all yet still be close enough to decide last minute to take a drive up to the home on last minutes notice. The home is secluded yet right within the city limits and a few minute drive to downtown Mentone. It sits right across the street from Little River allowing us the opportunity to cross the dead end street the home sits on and to sit by the waters edge, go canoeing or jump in for a swim.

                                                              We loved it. Visited for our 43rd anniversary. Will definitely stay again and recommend to our friends and family.

                                                              Quiet, convenient, and well appointed

                                                              Rest Easy is one of the best equipped cabins we have ever stayed in. Beds were comfortable with extra blankets. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, and dishes, as well as condiments and a few basics that you'd rather not have to pack or make a special run to the store for. Everything was clean and neat, just as described and better than expected!

                                                              We enjoyed making s'mores at the fireplace and were happy to catch a break from the colder weather on our last day so we could enjoy the back porch.

                                                              Other high points: DeSoto Falls and delicious meals at the Wildflower and Greenleaf Grill. A big shout out for Mentone Market too, for its friendly atmosphere and yummy waffles.

                                                              This is an ideal cottage, reasonably priced, that will allow vacationers to check out the attractions in and around Mentone, situated a couple of blocks off 117, so that it's quiet and feels a little removed from town.

                                                              Thanks to Susan for timely emails and info and to Greg for sharing this delightful home.

                                                              The home was clean, had all the things I could need for a weekend and the location was fantastic. The screened in back porch and hammock were the perfect break from a busy work week. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
