Beautiful view. Great cabin.
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The scenery was wonderful and the cabin had absolutely everything we needed. The communication with the owner was also great as well.
This cabin had everything we could ask for. The seclusion & peacefulness but yet close enough to things we wanted to do (hiking/swimming). This was a family vacation for us. (Three 15 yr olds & 3 dogs in this house). Everyone had their own room when they wanted some private time but enjoyed the views, hot tub & s’mores at night. This is an annual trip for us & we’ll definitely be back to this cabin, very soon. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
We booked this property to get away from the city and relax in the mountains. This was the perfect property for my kids and I. The deck and view are amazing! The pictures of the view do not do it justice and the streams/little waterfalls add nice ambiance. We even got to see a storm at night pass over the ridge and into the valley - it was beautiful. It is close to Cloudland Canyon and Desoto state parks, so we could take an afternoon trip each day and explore the area. Julie was very helpful and responsive to my questions. We would definitely stay here again in the fall or spring.
Million Dollar View
The selling point of this rental is the view and it is a fantastic view. Located in a nice area but it is not as secluded as advertised. Houses on both sides about 75 yards on each side. The home itself was clean and comfortable. What was a bit disappointing is that the deck is in need of repair. A lot of black mold and and several boards that need replacing. Pressure wash and sealer would take care a lot of the cosmetic issues. Also one of the two sliding glass doors could not be opened and was about to come out of the Jam. The other doors window seam between the glass must have gotten compromised for the glass was always fogged over between the glass. Being we had marginal weather during our stay it would have been nice to have a good view from the inside. So my overall rating is a four. It is truly a diamond in the rough just need a little TLC.
We invited friends for a birthday party and everyone in the small group loved the cabin, especially view and the two waterfall/ streams flowing on each side of the house. The view and sound of the water was fantastic. Didn't want for anything on the inside with complete setup. Will recommend and probably tent again sometime.

About Julie Ellis/Captain Julie
I bought this home as my 2nd home years ago and while living in Atlanta routinely made trips to Ridgetop on weekends. We loved it and furnished the house with antiques, art and cabin style features. Since then, I moved to Florida and decided to let others enjoy the home as much as we have. I try to get up to Ridgetop once a year and while I am away we have a fantastic couple who take care of the property and are there for our guests anytime they are needed.
Julie Ellis/Captain Julie purchased this Cabin in 1987
Why Julie Ellis/Captain Julie chose Menlo
The view, the view, the view! That's why I originally bought Ridgetop but then I discovered other wonderful things about the home and the area. The house is very secluded with just a handful of homes on the road. Every season is wonderful, although Fall is probably my favorite. Sitting outside, enjoying the colors, and reading a book in front of the gas fire pit is hard to beat. I know you will love Ridgetop as much as I do.
What makes this Cabin unique
Enjoy the view, the oversized hot tub, barbecuing outside, the buckstove that heats the entire house, the walk down the quaint dirt road in front of the house. Sit at the outdoor bar that makes you feel as if you are soaring over Shinbone Valley below. You cannot help but feel at peace and relaxed while visiting Ridgetop.
