Happy Mentone! When you walk through the front door of Cool Breeze Cottage, you will see why we’ve been told it’s one of the best views in Mentone. In the summer and fall months, sit on the screened porch or double deck and enjoy the surrounding trees and thirty mile mountain brow views. In the winter, the view opens up to the valley below where you can see and hear the Chattanooga bound trains. No matter what the season, Cool Breeze Cottage has killer sunsets!!
On those chilly mountain days and evenings, enjoy the intimate coziness of the cottage’s rock fireplace with gas logs. If you choose to rough it, there is a rock fire pit out front in the garden.
Inside, Cool Breeze Cottage has charm galore with what we call “rustic luxury”. Have fun discovering all the interesting furnishings, watching three flat screen HD TV’s or using the wireless internet to connect with the outside world. A fully equipped kitchen makes staying at home a definite option; however, if you choose to venture out, the cottage is only steps away from Mentone restaurants, shopping and Brow Park.
It’s been said there’s something magical about Mentone. Once you visit, you will have to come back. We hope you’ll stay at Cool Breeze Cottage and experience our little piece of magic.
We are a family from Birmingham,Alabama. We have three sons and three dogs.
Teresa Stokes purchased this cottage in 2014
We have three boys, 21,19, and 17, so before we went the first time, the obvious questions were....”Do they have wifi?” and “What is there to do up there.” The answers were... “Yes” and “Nothing” because that sounds wonderful to me. Actually, we have found many activities to do together and our sons were just as excited as we were to make the cottage our own. We have hiked out to “Hippie Hole” as the locals used to call it, not accessible by car. There is a very large natural swimming hole with huge rocks and a ledge to jump off of if you are crazy enough, which my boys are. Take your dogs and let them swim with you! Just Google Hippie Hole Mentone and look at the Youtube videos, the Travel and Leisure site, and the Atlanta Outdoor site.
At Christmas time, we went about 30 minutes out in the country to a place called Orbix Hot Glass to blow our own Christmas ornaments. On the way there, I said that this was either going to be one of those things that I never live down and get reminded of every Christmas, or it was going to be one of those great memories that I can pat myself of the back for finding. Lucky for me, it was the latter! It was a great experience. Make sure you are there to watch one of the demonstrations.
Next we are going to check out the night skiing at Cloudmont. I think it is probably a good idea if I just watch at that one. There are several festivals throughout the year that you can find online, as the dates change each year. I never tire of browsing through the little shops in town and eating at Moonlight Bistro and The Wildflower Cafe. Lunch at Twiggs in Kamama is great and you can check out some of the local artists while you are there. One of my favorite places is Miracle Pottery. I am getting quite a collection! The Little River Canyon has numerous activities for the outdoors and the visitor center was very impressive.
This unique cottage has all the comforts of modern living with (3) HD Flat screen TV's, Wireless High Speed internet etc. , yet, offers a quiet retreat from the world if you so choose. Our pet loves the walks to Brow park and town, both within a stones throw from the cottage! As the saying goes, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
We were instantly impressed with Cool Breeze Cottage upon arrival. It is so much more than the website illustrates. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, easy walking distance to restaurants, all the amenities (technology!) to make guests comfortable, and such comfortable furnishings. This may be my new "go to" getaway spot. I hope to be back very soon.

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Cool Breeze Cottage! The view is breathtaking! The cottage was so comfortable and clean. We needed a rest from the stresses of our world and truly felt at peace. The food at the wildflower cafe and the moonlight bistro was wonderful! Thank you for sharing such a blessing!
Cool Breeze is perfect if you are looking for a clean, cozy, comfortable, pet friendly and peaceful place. There are state parks in the area with beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails that we really enjoyed. The contact with the owners was always easy and they helped us with all our questions. We really recommend it!
Cool Breeze Cottage was the perfect getaway for our family (plus dog). The cottage was super clean (which hasn't been the case with all our VRBO choices). It was cozy and comfortable. The location can't be beat. We were able to walk up the road to Brow Park...or walk the other way to the shops and restaurants of Mentone. We definitely plan to return!
Cool Breeze is a delightful, peaceful and beautiful cottage. All the comforts of home plus many amenities that home doesn't have. The beautiful nature around it just adds to its charm. We highly recommend it.
My husband and I stayed at Cool Breeze Cottage over the Valentine Weekend! It was a very good weekend!! We loved the cottage and it's big stone fireplace, great view, and comfortable bed! We will definitely be back for a return stay!
My wife and I booked a weekend trip here for the last weekend in January. We've traveled extensively over North Alabama to camp and climb, but have only been to Mentone in passing. After filtering through many other places, we settled on this house. It was such a great stay that we're heading back in a couple of weekends. You won't regret booking this cottage. The house is clean, decorated great, and the deck is amazing. It has all the amenities that you need/want. We cooked the first night and ate at Wildflower Cafe (surprisingly awesome food) the next night. Not sure with the other reviewers, but parking was a non-issue. There really isn't a downside to this house.
