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 4 wooded acres. We purchased the 2.5 neighboring acres in 2019.  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.

       “A slice of heaven on lookout mountain”

"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."


"This was absolutely the perfect cottage for my husband and I to escape to for our 25th anniversary. Hitherside cottage was immaculate, and the cleanest property we have ever rented. Claudia was the perfect host! She was in contact to make sure everything was good after we checked in, and was quick to answer any questions we had. And we loved the recommendations for hiking, restaurants and more. Mentone is the perfect area for a vacation to get away, slow down and enjoy a relaxed, at-your-own pace retreat in the mountains of Alabama. We will definitely be back!"
