Overview

Mentone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Our rustic cabin sits on a beautiful rocky site on Little River's Lake Lahusage, just a few miles out of Mentone at the Georgia line. This is not a typical rental cabin - it's our family getaway in the truest sense. We've opted not to have telephone, television or internet. We actually read books, play board games, relax on the porch, rock patio or dock, watch the birds and squirrels, and swim and canoe in the lake. It's quite relaxing and we invite you to come try it for yourself. We have a double bed in one room and a bunk room with four singles, so it works well for a couple, a family, or a group of friends. Most of the year, you'll want to have the windows open, but for summer's hottest days we have 2 window unit AC's and in cold weather we have a wood stove and gas wall heaters. We've tried to decide what season we enjoy most at the cabin, but we like them all. Each season is wonderful in a different way.

Lake Lahusage is actually part of Little River and was created many years ago by a developer who was building a resort hotel on the lake, but it never materialized. Lots were sold around the lake for individual cottages and now there are some large and very nice homes, some of which are full time residences. But ours is one of the few (maybe the only one) available for short term rental. We invite you to take advantage of this wonderful and little known corner of Lookout Mountain.

About Susan Collins

We're Jane and Jack Brunson and we live in Elba, AL, which is a 5-hour drive from the cabin, so we don't get to be there as often as we'd like. Jane is from Fort Payne originally, so we enjoy keeping a connection to DeKalb County and letting our four children get to know her hometown area better.

Susan Collins purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Susan Collins chose Mentone

We started bringing our kids to summer camp at Mentone in the early 1990's and really enjoyed the area. Jane was from Fort Payne, but had not spent a lot of time in Mentone. We rented cabins and stayed at the State Park for a few years, and decided it would be nice to have a little place of our own.

What makes this cabin unique

When we were considering purchasing a second home in the Mentone area, we didn't really know about Lake Lahusage. But once we saw the advantages the lake offered, a cabin not on the water was suddenly out of the question. We wanted a small, rustic cabin with a cozy feel to it. The unfinished cedar walls and ceilings in this little cabin would be difficult to duplicate today. It was just big enough for our family of 6, and we particularly enjoy the screened porch and eat all our meals on the porch except during the coldest months of the year.

We love taking an early morning canoe ride and usually have the entire lake to ourselves -- except for the ducks and geese. Our part of the lake is quiet and far enough from the highway that we have almost no road noise. It's a peaceful and quiet setting that's getting harder to find. Mentone is a unique place - almost lost in time - and has a pace and attitude all its own. We rarely look at a clock when we're there. We just say we're on 'Mentone time'.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came with our adult children to spend the weekend to celebrate my husband's 62nd birthday. We made breakfast on Saturday morning with pumpkin pecan waffles that smelled heavenly and tasted divine. The kids loved canoeing on the lake and mountain biking in Desoto Park. One son brought his kayak as well. The fire pit was great and I wish I had a porch like yours!

Girl's Getaway Weekend

Girl's Getaway Weekend
  • 5 of 5
I just recently visited Mentone with a group of friends to spend a quiet and peaceful girl’s getaway weekend in the woods. Setaspell by the Lake was the perfect place to relax and unwind and to catch up. Spending time on the sofa all wrapped up in our cozy blankets, while sipping cups of coffee and reminiscing about the past and looking forward to the future was just what the doctor ordered. I had such a lovely time and I look forward to visiting Setaspell again.

Great place to "unplug"

My husband and I made our first trip to Mentone recently and stayed at "Setaspell"... What a wonderful trip we had! The location is absolutely beautiful, and it was so convenient to dining and shopping in town. We had time to relax and unwind, and spend time together fishing, which we both enjoyed. The porch is a perfect place to let all the distractions fade away with a nice warm cup of coffee, in the morning and evening too. We are looking forward to coming back to "Setaspell" next month for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We can't wait!

A perfect escape

  • 5 of 5
"Setaspell" is one of my favorite getaways! For several years, my friends and I have visited the cabin for our girls weekends. It is a perfect size in a beautiful location - and the porch is perfect for hours of catching up Our only regret is that time seems to slip by far too quickly at Setaspell!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been coming to "Setaspell" for several years now, and it always feels like coming home. The peace and serenity of this rustic, charming cabin on the lake keeps us coming back again and again. We love to end each day with a sunset canoe ride, then a delicious meal cooked on the grill. In the morning, we enjoy our coffee on the screened porch, serenaded by the birds and watching the flock of Canada geese (who make Lake Lahusage their year-round home) make their morning pass down the length of the lake. Mentone is only a few miles away, so if we feel like getting out (we rarely do!) we can visit the quaint shops and restaurants there. In addition, the value of this beautiful property is second to none.
