About the property


Fantastic getaway. Awesome location near Desoto State Park and Little River Canyon. Enjoy your rustic cabin on a private 1.5 acre lot with outdoor fire pit and wildlife. 3 lakes decorate the landscape and hiking trails are also available. Enjoy the Cloudmont Ski and golf resort during seasons along with parks and horseback riding within minutes. Only 10 minutes from downtown Mentone and 20 minutes from interstate. Chattanooga is less than an hour away with upscale dining and entertainment available. Also in Mentone is the Wildflower Cafe, one of America's top 100 must eat restaurants. Mentone is the home to many girls and boys camps, awesome mountain views(Brow Park) and arts/crafts shops for antique shopping. Nearby, Ft. Payne,l is the home to the band, Alabama, and offers a museum for daily visits and info. Our cabin is new to the rental market and we are looking to keep it rustic but also provide essentials for the vacationer.

Our cabin is furnished with a full bed in the master bedroom, a fold out sleeper sofa and a futon in the sleeping nook. Gas logs fireplace, central air/heat and 1.5 baths will adequately provide comfort to six adults. Our cabin is on a private wooded lot located at the very back of Laurel Creek Lakes. There will be no traffic or noise to take away from this secluded location. My wife and I are very excited about our new rental property and we look forward to extending this rustic beauty to travelers. You will not be disappointed. Here are some local activities for the kids.......

*Alpine Camp for Boys

*Camp Laney for Boys

*Natures Classroom

*Riverview Camp for Girls

*Camp Skyline Ranch for Girls

*Camp DeSoto for Girls

*Ponderosa Bible Camp

*Lookout Mountain Camp for Boys

*Camp Comer

Close enough to Huntsville, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Ft Payne to do it all or just relax in our cabin and do nothing at all.

Love Nest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time here. It was such a cute place. It was close enough to everything so that we could enjoy all the things we wanted to do, but far enough away that we had privacy.

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and there were throws to snuggle with on the sofa. We enjoyed the firepit and walking in the area. We also took a short drive to Desoto Falls and Little River Canyon. There was great hiking in the Canyon area. We spent an entire day hiking and driving to all of the overlooks. It was a wonderful, relaxing few days.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin spur of the moment, sadly as we were coming into town for a funeral. It was perfect for what we needed, definitely better than a hotel. We would love to go back in the spring/fall under different circumstances when we could truly enjoy it. It is decorated so well, someone put a lot of thought into it! Very well stocked with everything you would need/want! Owner was very nice to deal with!

honeymoon trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I sent our brother and sister in law on a honeymoon getaway here and they absolutely loved it!! They even had robes out for them. They said it was secluded and quiet with a beautiful walking trail nearby. It was clean and the owner was very nice and easy to do business with. We will hopefully get to go next time!

Spent Friday to Sunday on a weekend getaway. Cabin and property cozy and secluded.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and enjoyed the cabin. Everything was set for us to include walking sticks and orange vests for hiking on the walking trail. (Thanks Bill) The Hot tub was awesome and the stars at night are clear and abundant. The bed was very comfortable if you need to get some well deserved rest. I would recommend to anyone looking for a cozy cabin getaway. Mentone is not too far from Chattanooga as well. We will definitely be back in the future.

About Bill Sexton

Lisa and I just sold our beach condo so we could vacation in the mountains. She loves shopping and I prefer fishing, kayaking and more rustic settings. We both own Harley's and love to ride whenever possible. We are looking forward to spending time at our cabin and bringing our bikes so we can explore new roads and adventures.

Bill Sexton purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Bill Sexton chose Mentone

This is my dream home and we would like to share it with you! We chose this particular cabin because of the central location but it offers the vacationer the feel of seclusion. However, you are only minutes from many parks, nature preserves, water sports and beautiful views.


Car: necessary


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $60
Damage Deposit $99

The house cleaning fee of $65.00 includes $50 for cleaning the cabin after each guest and $15 is for hot tub cleaning. Because your health and safety is important to me, I hired a service to come in after each guest and thoroughly clean and drain hot tub if necessary. Thank you for considering our property and we value your business.
