About Susan Collins

My wife and I bought our beautiful second home as a vacation home to get away from the hectic pace and stress of our jobs. That was 10 years ago. Now we have 2 beautiful daughters, the focal point of our lives. This is part of the reason we decided to rent our home out for others, 4 years ago, for others to enjoy the home as well as we simply don't have the opportunity to get up to the home as often as we would like. We are a family of four and do utilize and enjoy the property, unfortunately, not as much as we would love to as we moved to a different part of Atlanta which has increased the commute to the home by an additional hour.

Susan Collins purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Susan Collins chose Mentone

My wife and I bought our vacation home near my cousin as a way for us to "get away from it all" and also be close to family. It was the perfect getaway from the hectic pace of our daily jobs and being only an hour and a half from our home, Mentone offered the R&R we needed to just get away from it all yet still be close enough to decide last minute to take a drive up to the home on last minutes notice. The home is secluded yet right within the city limits and a few minute drive to downtown Mentone. It sits right across the street from Little River allowing us the opportunity to cross the dead end street the home sits on and to sit by the waters edge, go canoeing or jump in for a swim.

Guestbook comments from the manager

WE had a wonderful time! Your cabin is great, especially that screened-in porch. We will definitely be back! The TV really wasn't a big issue, there was so much to see and do. Thank you for the offer of a free night. We will take you up on it. Again, your property is just wonderful!

An Upscale Cabin Near Countless Outdoor Activities

  • 5 of 5

This home was the absolutely perfect place to stay while vacationing around Mentone and Fort Payne. The cabin was incredibly clean and beautiful. It also provided all of the creature comforts you would want, including a full kitchen, a flat screen TV with satellite cable, Wi-Fi, exceptionally comfortable furniture, lots of hot water, powerful air conditioning, ceiling fans, ambient lighting, and so much more. Plus, the house is near parks where you can take in the gorgeous views from different outlooks, hike a wide variety of trails, rock climb, and swim. When staying at this cabin, you're also really close to fun eateries like Wildflower Cafe. If you are looking for a quiet and upscale place to stay during your mountain trip, I highly recommend staying at this home.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Very nice peaceful setting. Had a great relaxing stay. Cabin has all that you need. Only thing that I would add is a tv with separate cable box. Not a deal breaker but when mama wants to watch lifetime channel and I want to watch sports or Fox News, Guess who’s going to win! We will come again, Thanks for the stay.

A very quiet escape in the woods. Very clean, and quaint. My wife said she didn’t want to leave, and insisted we come back again one day.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Mentone! Most of our time at Rest Easy was spent on the wonderful screened porch. Even in May, the air was cool enough to use the fireplace on the porch, so we set up the card table we brought along and had meals and played games there. The inside of the cabin had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and it was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The one-person kitchen (a great excuse for everyone else to head for the porch to read and drink coffee!) was well-stocked with plenty of pots and pans and utensils. The bedrooms and baths are spacious and private. This is one VRBO experience we'd like to repeat!

We left the cabin long enough to stop by the hardware store on the corner, where we had a nice chat with the lady behind the counter who was a great source of local information. The farmer's market was a good recommendation.

Susan's management of this property is flawless! She answered texted questions immediately and notified us of our pending damage deposit refund before we even thought to ask. If I had a rental cabin, I would want Susan to manage it.
