VALKYRIE Secluded Romantic River Cabin River and Mountain Views Log/Stone Cabin

Riverfront cabin with kitchen and patio
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 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.

5/5 Excellent

Very secluded. Would stay again!
Exactly as described. Even better than the pics. Very secluded. Very clean and well furnished. Our granddaughter (6 years old) loved it all. I would definitely recommend.

It was easy and the information was accurate.

Birthday Getaway
Everything about the Valkyrie was wonderful. We enjoyed the large hot tub, hiking down to the river and sitting by the fire outside. There was more room in the cabin than we expected! We also took advantage of the local state parks and shopping in Mentone.

5/5 Excellent

This was the most perfect stay for my husband and I. We just needed time away to decompress. We will definitely be back!!

5/5 Excellent

Very special place
We had the most wonderful stay at Valkyrie for our honeymoon. We loved the setting in the woods overlooking the river (it is very isolated, we enjoyed that but if you don't then make a note). Most waterways were flooded during our stay so we didn't get to swim in the river below, but we enjoyed the sound of the roaring water from the screened porch. The bed was comfy, the bathtub and hot tub were each wonderful after hiking to nearby waterfalls, and the kitchen and fireplace were lovely as well. We didn't get to enjoy the outdoor property as much but hope to explore on a return visit. Our only complaint is that the hot tub wasn't working for the first 24 hours, but the local host was easy to communicate with and got it taken care of the next afternoon. Otherwise, we had a perfect stay at this really special cabin.
