Overview

About the property

Surrounded By Woods & Horse Pastures, This Cozy Cottage Is A Perfect Getaway.

This wonderful property provides an ideal way to get in tune with nature, relax and create, yet still have ready access to the most charming mountain town. Perfect for monthly or weekly lodging as well as overnight stays!

This sweet little property in the mountains of northern Alabama is offered by writer and owner John Lee. Enjoy peace, quiet and breathtaking views of the surrounding woods and horse pastures from both a front and back deck under massive trees. The cottage is ideal for long-term monthly or weekly stays as well as nightly visits.

If you're ready to stay in, the rustic cottage and surrounding land provide perfect space for resting, creating, writing, meditating and more. If you're ready to go exploring, the cottage is within walking distance of the hike and bike trails of DeSoto State Park.

The property is located about 5 miles from Mentone, a quaint, artistic town only 10 minutes away from Interstate 59 (Exit 231) on Lookout Mountain. Mentone offers great restaurants, stores and shops along with breathtaking mountain views and incomparable natural beauty.

The cottage sleeps up to 4 people on one king-size bed in the bedroom, and a couch in the living room which unfolds into a queen size bed. The cottage has a land line phone and WiFi, as well as DirectTV with the premium package.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities of home: electric stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and water filter on the faucet. The quaint cabinets are handmade by a local carpenter and the dining area has a beautiful view of the trees on the property and the horse pastures across the road.

The large bedroom features a king-size air bed (not just an air mattress, but a fully padded, meant-for-daily-use air bed!). You can store your items in the closet and dresser, and the bathroom off of the bedroom has a whirlpool tub perfect for relaxing after a beautiful hike in DeSoto State Park. The second bathroom has a shower if you prefer.

Located on the property in a small building a few yards away from the cottage are the full-size washer and dryer.

This getaway is very pet friendly; 1 acre is fully fenced, and yours are welcome to the entire area, but please notify owner in advance, crate when left alone, and clean up after them.

There is plenty of free on-site parking.

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was a great getaway. Short drive to Desoto Falls, great hiking trails. Wifi and Sattelite TV signals were good. Bed was very big and very comfortable. Don't trust Google Maps to get you all the way there. At county road 625 don't follow directions to 621 (gravel road) take 624 (paved) slight left and you'll go a 1/2 mile or less and see it on the left; the sign says The Breeze at Dawn- fitting, descriptive name.

Winter fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Breeze at Dawn. The cottage was comfortable and had what we needed. The fenced in yard was a great bonus for the dogs. The cottage is very close to Desoto State Park and not far from the town of Mentone. We enjoyed hiking at the park and at the Little River Canyon, checking out Desoto Falls and the general area. Lots of great outdoors activities in the area!

good time in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The location and accommodations were all lovely. The furniture was a bit old but that just added to the character of the place. As a special bonus we discovered a soccer field in the woods within walking distance of the cabin.

Great peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and our greyhound loved exploring the spacious fenced yard. We mountain bikes at hiked at nearby DeSoto Park. Mentone is a cute little city with some great little shops. Highly recommend the fudge shop. Lots of great selections. Also, we enjoyed the drive through Little River Canyon. Very scenic as the leaves were changing colors. We enjoyed the great evening weather on the deck. The cabin had everything we needed. We brought tons of food so we didn’t need any of the extras John had but nice to have them just in case.
