About Sara Moore
HI, I'm Sara. I am a business owner in Jacksonville, Fl. I grew up in Georgia but have been a Floridian for 50 years. Visiting the mountains is a particular pleasure of mine, and I hope you will enjoy it, too!
Sara Moore purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Sara Moore chose Menlo
I have enjoyed visiting the mountains of my home state, Georgia, since I was a little girl. I was an active Girl Scout, as was my sister and my daughter. All of us were campers at Camp Juliette Low for girls in Cloudland, Ga. When the chance presented itself to buy a cabin in the area, I jumped at it. The log shell was built as a labor of love by one man over the course of ten years. However, when he was unable to complete it, my close family friends, who are local artists, bought it and completed it in 2007, adding their own unique artistic touches.
What makes this Cabin unique
The view of Shinbone Valley is breathtaking. The original owner created a lower deck 200 feet down the mountain, where the sunrises are unparalleled (they even say that he slept there while he was building the log shell). Seasons each show off their natural best. There is usually at least one light snow in winter, and the cast iron stove is wonderful at keeping the entire cabin snug. In spring, the earliest Amalancher tree blooms in the dooryard. In summer, there is no better snooze than on the old glider on the sleeping porch. This little cabin accomodates any size group, from the couple on their (second) honeymoon, to a family of seven seeking to renew their bond. It's terrific for kids. The area boasts a cattle ranch that is as well maintained as any in Georgia. It is home to several summer camps, the closest being Camp Juliette Low, a Girl Scout camp for girls, and Valley View Ranch, one of the premier equestrian camps for girls in the country. Walking or hiking is always a treat. And fishing and horseback riding are favorite activities of the local folks.

The cabin was amazing. It was pristine. Everything you ever want. Loved it
I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Lisa is really an amazing cleaning lady. She always makes sure every detail of cleaning and restocking is attended to. I sure hope you will plan to return to the cabin soon. Meantime, have a wonderful summer!
An adorable little cabin in the woods with an incredible view from the back looking over a vast valley below. The inside is a lovely homey cabin decor with absolutely everything we needed to make our stay convenient and comfortable. The hostess was very accommodating and pleasant. Thank you, Sara!
Perfect getaway the enjoy the mountains.
Everything was perfect to get away and enjoy the beauty of mother nature. Host EAS extremely thoughtful to cover everything you possibly need or have questions about.
It was a pleasure to have you as guests! I'm happy you enjoyed your time up there. I truly hope you will return and visit Acorn Ledge Lodge again in the near future. Meantime, best of luck to you. Sara
This cabin and the view and the owner are way better than the pictures show. Sara is a fantastic communicator and very accommodating. My wife, kids and our dog Maizy had an outstanding time at Acorn Lodge. Thank you Sara for a great stay.
I'm so glad everything worked out and that you all got to have some peace and rest. I sincerely hope that you will plan to return soon and experience all that the cabin has to offer at other times of the year. In the meantime, all best wishes to the family! Sara
Cabin was well stocked and it was so quiet and peaceful.. Just what we needed to get away. I highly recommend it
I'm so glad you enjoyed your weekend. Please come again, soon!
Everything that it promised to be and then some.......
This property was well maintained and filled with serenity and a view beyond expectations. If you are looking for a place to relax and a getaway from the hustle of society.... This is it. There was plenty of room for my wife and I along with two of our children. I'm not use to waiting for the sun to come up at 8 o'clock in the morning.... but I adjusted. Thanks for the opportunity to share your little piece of Heaven here on earth.
Well, if there was any way I could have done something about that sunrise time, I would have done it. Guess we all have to make that adjustment every year! I'm so pleased that you were able to get away and appreciate some peace and quiet. I hope you will come again, soon. Sara
This is horse country! A list of local stables is included in the info on nearby state and national parks. There are plenty of great restaurants and antique shops 20 minutes west in Mentone, AL...Believe it or not, the only winter skiing in AL or GA is in Mentone! Hang gliding in Rising Fawn. Also wonderful caving activities in Valley Head, and underground Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, especially appeals to little folks.
