Lazy River Cottage

by Little River Vacay

Nestled amongst the beautiful forests and rock formations atop Lookout Mountain is the quaint and extraordinary small town of Mentone, AL.  This area of Dekalb County is home to Desoto State Park, Desoto Falls, and Little River Canyon National Preserve. There are countless trails, waterfalls, and beautiful scenery to enjoy around every corner. 

Located on Little River just steps away from Desoto Falls State Park, a stay at Lazy River Cottage is the perfect way to enjoy all this area of Lookout Mountain has to offer.  From weekend getaways to week-long vacations, Lazy River Cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind while making memories to last a lifetime. 

We happened upon this best-kept secret in North Alabama in 2017 when looking for a place to spend quality time with family.  The serene beauty of Mentone, AL along with its close proximity to Chattanooga, Huntsville, Birmingham, and Atlanta drew us in. 


Our family has spent as much time as possible on Little River by Desoto Falls ever since.  It has become a place of refuge and rest for our family and we have been blessed to have the opportunity to make countless memories in this extraordinary area of the state.
