Large Secluded Romantic Bungalow, On The Edge Of The Brow With Miles Of Views
About Rob Shaffer
Hi! We love Mentone! We have several cabins here that we have built and come as much as we can. We live in Birmingham, and are both in the medical field. As hectic as that is, this place is our place of refuge and refreshing of our minds, relationships and spiritual revival. It is just a magical place. Period. We love sharing our home with respectful people seeking the same rejuvenation. We hope that you will leave better than you came. We always do.
Rob Shaffer purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Rob Shaffer chose Mentone
We have been coming to Mentone for many years, from Desoto State Park Camping and hiking, to floating the rivers, we can't get enough.

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The brow views are beautiful. Valhalla is a peaceful, relaxing place. Lots of birds and wildlife can be seen from the deck. The inside is lovely and very comfortable. We had many happy and relaxing hours sitting on the decks and porches.
Perfect Family Getaway
Beautiful cabin in ideal location! Gorgeous sunsets/ sunrises from porch and all the comforts of home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Fantastic Place to Stay!
The view from Valhalla is incredible. Although it rained the entire time, we enjoyed staying inside in such a comfortable place.
This cabin has an amazing view! It is well stocked and has everything needed. The hot tub was an added bonus! The town of Mentone is so quaint and unique. Wildflower Cafe is always one of our favorite places to eat. The overall experience was perfect!
