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.

AUGUST 10,11,12,13 "I could never, in a hundred summers, get tired of this..." The rush of the falls, the evening breeze, the sound of the cicadidae in the woods; the morning sun before the heat of day and the sunset over the brow.

       “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."
