About Lynna Meadows Morton

I grew up in this area and left when I was 17 for the University of Alabama. After having lived far and wide in the US, I returned to Mentone 2 years ago. The pull of home to Mentone is legendary!

Beautiful space with attention to every little detail

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this home was truly lovely. It was impeccably clean, generously stocked with basic necessities, and had plenty of extras including k-cups for the Keurig, a plethora of bath towels, laundry detergent/dryer sheets, beach towels for the hot tub, and most every cooking utensil you need for cooking just about anything. We've stayed in dozens of VRBO homes- around and outside of the States and have had many positive experiences, but, this house was THE most beautiful and welcoming to date. It was clear that a lot of love and care have been put into all of the thoughtful details- it is clear that this family really loves their home and wants their visitors to feel the same! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful trip. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home, Lynna!

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 weeks at Highland House and had a great stay! Lynna was great to communicate with , concerned that everything went smoothly for our stay. The house was beautiful, very comfortable with great beds, linens, towels.... and the list goes on. It was better supplied than any of the houses we've stayed in so far with vrbo. The weather was cool and rainy, but the house was so comfortable to be in. The pictures truly don't do it justice-just beautiful! It was private with houses around but not terribly close. The closest one didn't have any people there the whole time we were there. The outside deck was great, big overhang on it with very comfortable outdoor furniture. Great yard for our dog too! Great place for us with getting out of snowy weather back home. We had our deposit back quickly.

Beautiful house, home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is now one of our favorites. Beautiful house that felt like being at home as we enjoyed the tastefully decorated interior, gourmet kitchen and the wrap around porch. We plan to revisit the property in the near future and bring our friends.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, beautifully decorated and fully stocked with all the essentials. Lynna, the owner, was kind enough to even put up a Christmas tree for our stay.

Some problems with communications with VRBO, but Lynna was instrumental in resolving that as well.

Verizon users, beware of connectivity problems.

Otherwise, don’t hesitate to book this property.

Excellent value!

Attractions include DeSoto State Park, DeSoto Falls, Cloudmont Ski and Golf Resort, Mentone Wedding Chapel, Holly Springs Horseback Riding Stables, Mentone Brow Park, and St. Josephs Episcopal Church on the Mountain. Activities include several Arts and Crafts Festivals, Shady Grove Dude Ranch, One World Adventure Company and Saddle Rock Golf Course. Art and music can always be found at Kamama's including wonderful food in their resturant. Fine dining can also be found at the Green Leaf Grill, and the famous Wildflower Cafe, voted one of the Top 10 Cafes in Alabama. On weekends there is arts and crafts shopping at the Log Cabin Village and every Saturday at the Mentone Marketplace!
