Mentone Alabama

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mentone Cabins Realty, LLC

Mentone has it all! Excellent restaurants, cozy cabins, bed and breakfasts, historic hotels, lodges, Desoto State Park, and of course camps.

Mentone literally means, "musical mountain spring," and while natural cascades and rippling streams create a melody all their own, it's the sound of church chimes and harmonizing home folk that draw the most interest, musically, today.

As a special place, Mentone qualifies naturally!  It simply has everything good you'd expect to find in a mountain environment -- clean streams; lush fragrant flora; unobstructed vistas; cool temperatures; and a certain peacefulness so hard to find nowadays.  The air here is clear and crisp.  There are no flashing neon signs -- no shopping malls -- no traffic jams.  There's almost nothing to remind you of the city.  Streets (more like lanes) are narrow and twisting paths of little resistance, with cottages tucked here and there. 

If you are planning on buying a vacation second home, it important that you do your research on the area.  I would suggest that you first spend time staying at several different cabins so you discover what you like best and experience the different cabins.  Do not rush into buying a vacation second home.  Do your research.  These experiences will help you best decide on your second home that will suit your family best.
