Overview

About the property

On the East Fork of the Little River minutes from Mentone on 25 Acres Secluded

This is simply the Nicest and Best Appointed cabin in Mentone. I should know considering then next three in line are also our cabins! AND I designed and decorated it! (We accept 1-2 day rentals during the week-Mon-Thursday depending on availability, and 3 day rentals for the weekends.) This Beautiful Cabin was taken timber by timber from its original location in Kentucky. It has a sister cabin many of you have stayed in-Fernweh-666662. IT is new-old construction taking over a year to build. Construction finish date was November 6th 2016. It is also a sister cabin to 'Away from it All' vrbo-480579 which many of you have had the pleasure of staying in. The cabin is model pre-civil war construction, it was reconstructed using modern mortar technique and then added on to in its current location. The Cabin sits at the end of a private dirt and gravel road on 25 secluded acres on the deep section of the Little River. Secluded is an understatement. It is situated on a bluff overlooking the Crystal Clear East Fork of the Little River, just below a waterfall and a creek which can be heard as soon as you open the door to the car during the wetter seasons. We have an inviting large covered front porch with swing and with a larger open uncovered front porch with ample log furniture where many a book has been read in the fragrant mountain air. There is also a covered and screened back porch and an open Back porch! The Cabin itself retains all of its antique charm as you enter the Great room with its stone double sided wood-burning fireplace serving the great-room and the Master bedroom both located on the lower floor. The Upstairs is separated by a staircase that leads to a private spacious upper loft that contains a King and 2 Queen Beds. The Master Bedroom downstairs is off of the Great-room and is garnered with mountain views through perfectly placed casement windows and King Bed, situated perfectly so that you can see the woods and sunrise from the bed. Enjoy the Wood Burning Fireplace in the Bedroom. Off of the Master Bedroom is a Beautiful Master bath with stone walk in shower and copper slipper tub, set below a large window overlooking the woods. All sinks were imported from a copper-smith in Mexico. There is a fully functional kitchen with stainless Full size appliances/dishwasher/stove/oven/refrigerator/freezer/microwave and all cooking supplies you could possibly need. One Bathroom Downstairs off of the Great-room with a combo-shower and bath Samsung HE Washer and Dryer, and a Master Bath off of the Master Bedroom with a Walk in Stone Shower, and Large Copper Slipper Tub. High Efficiency Samsung Washer and Dryer. 2 Flat Screen TV's with Direct TV up and downstairs with /DVD/Wireless Internet/Direct TV Network Sports/Central Heat and Air. I Message available-Cell phone coverage is available from the front porch though it can be spotty at times. I-phones work great through I-message or KIK/any internet messaging service. There is a Master Bedroom that overlooks a large elevated back porch over the river canyon and the river can be heard from an open window. There is a large stone hearth wood burning fireplace in the bedroom. The Bedroom opens onto a cozy screened in porch with a 5 person water therapy spa/hot-tub. There is a charcoal grill on the back porch. There is a fire-pit and picnic area above the river, and a built in natural trail to the river itself where depending on the water level you can swim/float/fish/lounge in the crystal clear mountain water. The house is about 10 minutes from Downtown Mentone, AL and 15 minutes from Fort Payne, AL for antique shopping/cultural activity/or fantastic food and music at the Wildflower Cafe or other restaurants. The canyon is also about 10 minutes away, and 5 Minutes from Alpine Boys Camp, Desoto State Park, Desoto Waterfall, and Lake. There are wildflowers galore and wild blueberries and blackberries and plums along the road depending on the season. Wildlife abounds everywhere. The Tin Roof provides a great sound to sleep to when it rains. The Cabin is beyond secluded on a private road. We accept 1-2 day rentals during the week-Mon-Thursday depending on availability, and 3 day rentals for the weekends. Just input your dates and I will get back with you with our availability by email or text. Wood is available. When you ask about dates we will respond with a contract sent to your email address if your dates are accepted and available.

Why Rob Shaffer chose Mentone

It is one of the highest end cabins in the Mentone area, the most secluded, and we take DETAIL very seriously. Our Cabins are homes away from our home and we do everything possible to reflect our unique style and character in every aspect of every property we have, the majority of our guests book again when they return home for the next year, and we have an occupancy rate of over 80%. A great number of our guests are return families and we have many people who come yearly who were either married in and around Mentone or were engaged in our cabins and return yearly!

Absolutely breathtaking! We are already planning our next trip !

  • 5 of 5

We decided to do something a little different for spring Break this year and not go to the beach! What a wonderful decision! My family of 6 had THE BEST TIME ! We had more room in the adorable cabin that was decorated to a tee! A perfect hike down to the creek was in our backyard . Dips in the hot tub twice a day were just what we needed for our tired legs after long hikes . Away from noise , other people, was just what we needed with 4 kids who are busy and running all the time. We went to Desoto, and Little river canyon where we experienced beautiful waterfalls and amazing hikes ! I would highly recommend the Wildflowe cafe’ and doing all your shopping in town, Ft. Payne Walmart was very nice and clean , before you hunker down for your stay! We will be back !

Very well maintained property with everything you could want for a mountain getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three days with our three boys at this cabin. We rotated between hikes at Desoto State Park and Little River Falls/Martha Falls, and just hanging around the cabin, taking the path down to Little River, playing football in the yard, enjoying the hot tub, and making s'mores. The cabin is very comfortable, and we had everything we needed!

Beautiful, cozy and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely beautiful. It is in the middle of the woods all by itself. We saw deer in the woods. There is a nice wide path laid out that takes you down to the water. We enjoyed the hike and the view of the river. What beautiful scenery from every room of the cabin. It is a wonderful place for a nice relaxing weekend.

Another wonderful getaway! A gorgeous home, so glad the owners are willing to share their homes. You can do as much or as little as you chose.

Go shopping, exploring or just hang out and relax. Thanks
