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.

Just what I wanted.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. It was just what I was looking for in my mountain stay. Very close to DeSoto State Park and a short drive to Mentone. The cottage is well appointed with everything I needed.

Visit to Breeze at Dawn February 10 - 13, 2017

  • 4 of 5

Breeze at Dawn is a quirky little getaway on wooded property with beautiful views of horses grazing. Though we did not meet the owner, his personality comes through. The cottage beckons you to quiet reflection with its voluminous book collection and several numbered and signed prints on the walls-- well balanced with a rustic, down-home, comfortable ambiance. The wonderful fireplace and strategically placed rockers made us want to build a fire even if it was not that cold for February. It is an awesome place to read, write, and disconnect from your devices, but we were glad we brought a blue-tooth speaker for a little music to go with the fire.

Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is peaceful and quaint. Our two dogs were with us and they had an amazing time playing in the large fenced yard. Evenings in front of the fire will be missed! The host is thoughtful and welcoming and we hope to stay again, soon!

Peace and quiet at a pet friendly secluded little cottage

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest and most responsive property owner I had the pleasure of renting from. From being greeted with fresh fruits and chocolates to realizing that you are only two miles away from some of the nicest hiking and biking trails in Alabama, the property is perfect for a short getaway.

Great location, cozy, well supplied

  • 5 of 5

Breeze at Dawn was great! It was clean, very well supplied, (even has a Keurig!), and fairly private, not one of those commercial cabin clusters.

The location is good, about five minutes from DeSoto S.P. and ten minutes from Mentone.

We would like to come back someday.
