Deep in the woods of a little mountain town called Mentone, there is a quaint little cottage known as “Hitherside”.   Hitherside was completed in late 2016 and we welcomed our first guests in 2017. The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and is secluded and private, surrounded by 2 wooded acres.  She is only 1 mile from the center of town, and conveniently located near all the natural beauty that Mentone and the surrounding area have to offer:  breathtaking Desoto falls, Little River Canyon, Desoto State Park, The Sallie Howard “Church of the Rock”,  Cloudland State Park and other local attractions.   Drive, walk or ride your bike to the scenic Brow Park and Downtown Mentone.   Get lunch to-go at one of the local cafes and picnic at the Falls.


Open the door of Hitherside to find a brand new, but warm and  welcoming cottage.  

Amenities include a full kitchen with all new full size appliances, including a dishwasher!    There is a breakfast bar for 3 and an additional table and chairs for two more individuals.   Off the kitchen step outside to the back porch deck which extends the length of the cottage.  You first walk out to a screened area with a table and chairs for 3 season outdoor dining.   Relax with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. Outside the screen room is the full size gas grill and Hot Tub for 4. 

The focal point of the cozy living room is a stone, wood-burning fireplace.   Enjoy your favorite television program on our 40 in flat screen or DVD while watching the fire.  


Through the white barn door is the main bedroom.  The bedroom was designed to be MORE comfortable than most cabins in the area with a huge king size bed, new mattress and luxury hotel linens.  The connecting bathroom, accessible either from the master suite or the living-room has a beautiful antique vanity with vessel sink, a full size tub/shower combination and toilet.

Just outside the bedroom is a custom designed ships ladder that is easy to climb and will take you to the sleeping loft that is nearly 165 sq feet.   Almost as large as the master bedroom, the loft has two extra -long twin beds with new mattresses.    The loft is suitable for either one or two adults or children over the age of 7 (who can safely climb the ladder).

"It was a glorious stay and a fantastic getaway. Claudia provided more than we expected including a picnic basket, flipflops, games, movies, coffee, snacks and even marshmallows for the firepit. The place is immaculate and as comfortable as home. Hot tub was perfect. The cottage is secluded (other homes a couple of acres away but cant see them due to woods). Less than a mile away from Brow Park which has spectacular mountain views."
