1800's Original Cozy Romantic Cabin For 2 Or The Family

Waterfront cabin in Mentone with patio
This Beautiful Cabin was taken timber by timber from its original location in Etowah County, Alabama. The cabin is pre-civil war in construction, it was reconstructed using the old mortar technique and then added on to in its current location. The Cabin sits on a private road behind a gate. Secluded is an understatement. It is situated on a bluff overlooking the Crystal Clear East Fork of the Little River, just below a waterfall which can be heard as soon as you open the door to the car during the wetter seasons. We have an inviting front porch with a cozy antique swing where many a book has been read in the fragrant mountain air. The Cabin itself retains all of its antique charm as you enter the Great room with its enormous original 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 two Twin beds and a Queen Bed. There is a fully functional kitchen with stainless appliances/dishwasher/stove/oven/refrigerator/freezer. One Bathroom Downstairs, with High Efficency Maytag Washer and Dryer. Flat Screen TV with Apple TV/DVD/Inside/outside Stereo/Xbox/Wireless Internet/Dish Network/Central Heat and Air. Master Bedroom overlooks a large elevated back porch 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 6 person water therapy spa/hot-tub. There is a charcoal grill on the back porch. There are steps to the fire-pit and picnic area overlooking the river, and steps to the river itself where depending on the water level you can swim/float/fish/lounge or sit in the crystal clear mountain water. The house is about 10 minutes from Downtown Mentone 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.

Fabulous Spring Break
This was our first trip to Mentone and so glad we stayed at this place! Very quiet and private and the sound of the river rapids below the cabin was perfect!

5/5 Excellent

My husband and I stayed here for our 43rd anniversary getaway. AMAZING cabin.
The ambiance of this cabin was amazing. Clean, historic, well stocked, beautiful and QUIET. We were so pleasantly surprised. We never even turned the t.v. on. With the fireplace, porch swing, hot tub and beautiful deck, not to mention the calming river that can be enjoyed from the deck, fire pit or hiked down to via the stairs, there was so much to do that was so relaxing. It was the perfect getaway.

5/5 Excellent

Great time! Will be back!
Great Time! Will be back!

4/5 Good

Very well-equipped, comfortable cabin
During our four-day stay in January we kept discovering small wonders in the decor and structure of this log retreat. Shelf brackets made of local tree branches, stone fireplaces, hand-hewn(?) squared logs, etc. It's a very special place. We brought lots of groceries and there was plenty of kitchen equipment, so we never had to leave. But we did... lots to do in the area.
