Hello: We are Kevin & Cynthia Rooks. Kevin grew up in this area, Lived in Tennessee for 15 yrs then returned to this area. Cynthia was born in upstate New York, the family moved to West Alabama when she was 9 yrs old because her mother hated the cold. We meet in 1989 and were married in 1990. We,ve been self employed all those years, and have been able to work together,in the Custom Cabinet industry, we enjoy being able assist our customers in design and color selection of their custom cabinets.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Owner chose Mentone
We chose to build in Mentone, because for one, we LOVE the Mountains and always vacationed in the mountains, in East Tennessee or out West. Mentone is very beautiful all seasons and has so much to offer, for that that quite get-away, so I coined the phrase "GREAT ARE THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE". And I really beleive that the simple things in life are the most enjoyable. I,ve always wanted to build my own cabin since I've been in the construction industry, this helped me to design and built the cabin, and with Cynthia's input on the color skeam it was a very enjoyable project, in which we put many personal touches for your enjoyment.
What makes this Cabin unique
There are many things we enjoy about our cabin Rooks Nook most in the decor. Take notice of the Exposed Beams which were Sawn from Pine Trees cut off the lot itself, these were sawn by a local Saw Man which brought his Portable Saw mill onto the lot and sawed the Beams on site. The Log walls came from North Carolina (not a kit) Each room has a Beadboard plank wainscoat which has a painted distressed finish, the Balcony Railings are Black Rubbed Distressed finish, the Kitchen is a Pine Cabinet with a Green distressed finish, and Red Knobs. All the furniture pieces were custom designed & built by our shop. There is a Pool table on the Balcony, Tile shower & Heart Shaped Jacuzzi in the Master Bath. Hot Tub & Rockers & Swings on the wrap around porch, Just relax and enjoy your self. We hope you get as much enjoyment from your stay as we do. And remember "GREAT ARE THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE"

Great place! Had a great time!
Had a great weekend!
Beautiful, relaxing place. Very cozy and the king bed sleeps very well! We loved the jacuzzi tub, and the swing on the porch was a perfect place to drink my morning coffee. I would definitely recommend this property. The only thing that was slightly disappointing is the fact that there is no great Mountain View, but that’s just bc if it’s location. Otherwise, lovely cabin!
We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary at Rooks Nook!! Recommend to anyone. Pictures do not do this place justice and all the little personal touches were great. Thanks for sharing your awesome place with us 😊�
Rook’s Nook Mentone
We were very pleased with this property!! Lots of extras. A dish of candies & mints, new citronella candles for the porch, and Bath & Body products in baths. Saw deer, hummingbirds and a fox while enjoying porch setting. Home was very clean and comfortable.
Much Needed Downtime
This was one of the prettiest places I've ever stayed !! The stillness and peacefulness was so welcoming. But to step inside and have everything feel so homey, was more than I expected !!. Really loved the leather couch and chair. And the bed was extra ccomfy!!The beautiful antiques and family heirlooms added to the warmth of the cabin. It's location to Little River, Desoto and Mentone is just right ! I would love to come back for another weekend in the winter or spring !! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home !!
Camp Drop off
We had a wonderful experience at the Rooks Nook. We traveled to Mentone to drop our children off at camp. Cabin was very clean and close to both camps. We will definitely be back.
