“Couldn't ask for better!”
Reviewed June 24, 2004

(June/04) What a wonderful place!! After informing the clerk that it was our first visit to Alabama we were given cabin #1 because it had the best view. The cabin was rustic with a beautiful glow inside when lit up. I imagine that the fireplace in use could only improve the atmosphere! We adjusted the A/C to our comfort. It was very clean and comfortable, fully furnished, including all you need to prepare and eat meals and clean up afterward, including dish soap. It had a love seat, 1 dbl & 1 sgl bed, dresser in open closet area w/ hangers, seating for six at the table next to the fireplace, seating for 2 on teakwood chairs in the screened-in porch. The ceiling fan in the porch added a beautiful breeze to the already very comfortable climate, and it had a light kit. We felt very secure. The cabin had a HEAVY door with a lock. The screen door also had a padlock. We did not have a spider problem, nor did we see one bug inside the cabin; although being in the mountains, you should expect to. There were trails starting from the rear of the cabin. The park has the most beautiful lodge that can be used for parties, etc, with beautiful landscaping and an INCREDIBLE view. The personnel was very friendly and helpful, with maps and info about places to go in Huntsville. Our experience at this park was above average to excellent.

My wife and I really enjoyed our one-night get-away at Monte Sano. The cabin we received was clean, the sheets and linens were sanitary, and the cleaning supplies were adequate. There were pans, dishes, glasses, and utensils for every need, including salt and pepper. Firewood was stacked neatly and waiting to be burned in the fireplace. We had to gather kindling, and starting the fire was a bit of a hassel. But once we got the fire going, the romantic atmosphere was worth the effort. We hiked around the mountain; there are plenty of routes to take. You felt safe because there are other cabins around you. Close, but not too close. And the price is very reasonable. We plan to go back.

I have lodged various folks at the Monte Sano cabins. From my own parents to friends from the UK.

This is life at 3500 feet. It is IN the woods.

We did hot dogs and marsmallows, etc.

Is a great place for a honeymoon!!

The cabins were nice, and had just about everything you could need. I would like to suggest that you put cleaning products in the cabin.( dish detergent,and maybe one household cleaner) The only problem was the spiders. And I mean big spiders, webs were on every window, inside as well as outside. The porch was a real problem, we could not even use it until the husband cleaned of all the webs. That was un-nessacary. The front door -way had so many spider webs that we did not use it, we had to use the back door. The cabin was not ready when we arrived, and the cleaning person tried to get us to take the other cabin. Not a good first impression.
