The Mentone Inn is set on top of Lookout Mtn. in Alabama near art, nature and craft wonders. The peaceful setting allows time to enjoy sitting on the porch, eating the divine brunch offered occasionally, walking nature trails to waterfalls, enjoying local art, pottery and glassware. Enjoy time away from the business of everyday at this charming inn.

I loved staying at the Mentone Inn. This was my second stay and it was exceptional as was the first time. The inn keeper is so personable and feels like a long time friend. The breakfast is phenomenal and the rooms are so comfortable. The house was built in 1927 and is adorable. The town of Mentone is so quaint... More

Wonderful, restful weekend at the Mentone Inn. We were welcomed graciously as we arrived and made to feel at home immediately. This was my first B and B and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and comfortable the experience was. Cynthia is a natural at making you feel welcome. The room was a pleasant, homey feeling corner room and... More

The host of Mentone Inn, Cynthia, has gone the extra mile to provide a quaint and comfortable stay at the top of this mountain village. Relax by the fireplace and chat with other visitors, walk down to the village and see the shops. You might even catch a folk concert in the gazebo. Settle in upstairs in your cozy little... More

I always like to start by saying that I've been in the travel business for over 20 years... I'm not easily impressed. We visited the Mentone Inn for a weekend with friends. As soon as we walked in the door, Cynthia the Innkeeper greeted us with, "Welcome to my home". A fire in the fireplace and cozy couch's in the... More

Cynthia ( and Nolan ) were the perfect hosts for our World's Longest Yard Sale weekend. Relaxing and laid back and fun! The Inn is situated perfectly for dining and shopping. Mentone is a must visit. Thanks Cynthia!

What a wonderful breakfast buffet!! It isn't even required that you stay here (but why wouldn't you, it's so soulful)!! Tomato pie, cheese grits, biscuits gravy, conehca sausages, hashbrown casserole, eggs florentine, French toast casserole, chocolate covered strawberries. Coffee(not the greatest), juice or milk. It was amazing!!!

After reading several reviews questioning the cleanliness of the Inn, I have to say this is a very old building with lots of rooms and wood, and those of you who have complained about cobwebs and/or dust should think about the age of the building, how old it is, how hard it must be to keep all of it shining...
