Oakleaf Hideaway is a recently renovated cottage nestled in the trees on 20 private acres on top of Lookout Mountain.

Featuring private walking trails, waterfalls and 2,000 feet of frontage on Straight Creek, the cottage is your perfect getaway to unwind and recharge.

Located just 1.5 miles from the visitor's center at Desoto State Park, the cottage is close to everything including the restaurants of downtown Mentone, Little River Canyon, and shopping in Ft. Payne.

The space
Master Suite:
Enjoy the serenity of the woods and golden sunsets from the comfort of the luxurious King bed featuring 600 thread-count linens. French doors lead to the large back deck with a fire-pit.

The master also features a sitting area with an antique settee from France, a master closet, chest, and a master bath with a full-sized washer and dryer.

Guest Bedroom:
The guest bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together for couples. This bright and airy room has beautiful views of the forest and features luxurious linens, drapery and a mural framed with aged local barn wood.

Kitchen:
The well-appointed chef's kitchen features warm butcher block counter tops, a large rustic island, new black-stainless appliances with gas stove, and several details built from wood from a nearby 1800's barn. Rough-sawn open shelving from a nearby family farm sets off the beautiful and artistic decor.

Living Room / Dining Room:
The open concept living room exudes coziness and warmth. Hand-scraped oak hardwood floors, wood accent walls, and the limewashed fireplace and wood-burning stove will make even the coldest days delightful. A 40-inch 4k smart television has Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV apps. Just bring your favorite TV provider login and enjoy a movie night. While we think the best days are the days spent outside, we do have fast WiFi and LTE/4G coverage.

The dining room has seating for six (we've squeezed 9 around the table), and we provide china and service for 8.

The front door is equipped with a digital lock, and we'll provide you a code prior to your arrival.

My wife and I enjoy traveling - experiencing different cultures, seeing the natural wonders of different areas and looking for adventure. My wife is a nurse and has a passion for plant-based nutrition. She is Gluten Free and vegetarian. I work in technology, and love making music and spending time outdoors.
