Interaction with guests
The reason we named our home, the Mentone 'Rest Easy', is founded on the principle that when you book the home for your well deserved trip away from the everyday stresses of life, you have the entire home to yourself, no interaction with either the Owner or Property Manager for the home unless of course you have an inquiry or need assistance with something. In essence, you get the access code to the home and it is yours to use and enjoy during your entire stay. Our goal is to provide our guests with the most relaxing and restful stay possible so they leave with a sense of peace and serenity. This is only possible if we limit interactions with our guests and allow then to fully enjoy use of the home during their stay.

About the neighbourhood
The Mentone 'Rest Easy' vacation home is located on a fully wooded 3/4 acre lot at the back-end of a dead end street within the city limits of downtown Mentone, AL. Visitors to the home can walk to the downtown Mentone area, which in and of itself, is a jewel do not know about, nestled in the southernmost portion of the Appalachian mountain trail. Access to all the restaurants, shops, arts, crafts and local events are within approximately 15 minutes from the home if you choose to walk to the downtown area or 3 minutes by car. YOU GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: access to the local community and amenities but your stay in a quiet and serene location so you can enjoy as relaxing a stay as possible. Although there are a handful of other 'part time' vacation homes on the same road, which ru...
