Treehouse in Rising Fawn
The Sassafras Treehouse
The Sassafras Treehouse on Lookout Mountain is a brand new luxury treehouse with panoramic views and a spectacular sunrise. The treehouse features an a fully functional kitchen, (mini fridge, induction cooktop, and convection microwave) a traditional queen bed, a full bathroom, oversized soaking bathtub, outdoor shower, hot tub, firepit, bed swing, and several additional amenities listed below. This home is suited for 2 guests. This is a place to relax, unwind and unplug, therefore there is no television at this location. The Sassafras Treehouse is situated on 18 acres with many natural elements such as boulders, some of which were used in the construction and pathways of the treehouse, mountain laurel and sassafras on the grounds. Occasionally you may even spot deer. There are yurts nearby, not managed by us but we are happy to give you the info if you have additional people you are traveling with who want to stay nearby. The treehouse is constructed of many repurposed materials. The heart pine floors, lathing strips for ceiling construction, and reclaimed lumber used for ladder to the loft bedroom and chevron barn door was all from a furniture store that was over 100 years old. The beautiful dutch door was taken from an estate in Asheville, North Carolina. As you can see, a lot of love went into this one of a kind treehouse and we hope it brings our guests joy and peacefulness. Just like any other treehouse, this treehouse can slightly sway in high winds. This treehouse was built from a treehouse plan and has additional bracing. This rental is not suitable for pets or children under the age of 12. Minimum age to check-in is 21. The Sassafras Treehouse does not permit indoor smoking, parties, or events. 2 vehicles are permitted on the property and all guests staying overnight must be listed when booking. The treehouse is located 20 miles from downtown Chattanooga, 16 miles to Rock City, 3 miles to Cloudland Canyon, and is central to many other attractions. I am available by message and also live in the area if assistance is needed. **The outdoor shower will be winterized if temperatures drop below freezing.

Your guide to Mentone

All About Mentone

Once a popular health resort due to its mountain spring water, Mentone is nestled in the northeastern corner of Alabama, close to the state borders of Georgia and Tennessee. The small resort town is located 1,000 feet above the valley on top of Lookout Mountain, right on the doorstep of DeSoto State Park’s miles of hiking and biking trails and the impressive DeSoto Falls. The natural beauty of the park and its kayaking, fly fishing, and wildflower trail draw many visitors to cabins in Mentone. Fall’s changing foliage is a striking sight, with maples and poplars blazing a trail down the slope.

In town, there are antique stores, local arts and crafts shops, and galleries to browse, along with restaurants for refueling after a day of adventuring. The weekly summer farmers’ market showcases local, sustainably grown produce. You can even close out your day by watching the sunset in the cool mountain air from the great vantage point at nearby Brow Park.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mentone

Fall is a great time to take a trip to Mentone, when a fiery carpet of reds and oranges descend the mountain. The annual Mentone Colorfest in October combines vendors selling handmade arts and crafts and food with live entertainment and more, all against the backdrop of sweeping views of the valley below Lookout Mountain. Winters don’t provide a lot of natural snowfall, but you can still go to Alabama’s only ski resort and show off your skills — or learn new ones — on the artificial slopes. The springtime offers plenty of mountain laurels in bloom, while summer hikers are rewarded with carpets of wildflowers that take over the mountain. The area’s annual Rhododendron Festival has been taking place every May for decades to celebrate the arrival of long summer days.

Top things to do in Mentone

Shady Grove Dude Ranch

Sitting high atop Lookout Mountain, the Shady Grove Dude Ranch features 800 acres of beautiful wooded wilderness, crisscrossed by a host of trails to explore on foot or on horseback and soak up the tranquility of this secluded spot.

Mentone Arts and Cultural Center

For a deep dive into the Lookout Mountain region’s art scene, stop by the community-operated Mentone Arts and Cultural Center in the center of town, where you can learn more about local artists and view their work in the gallery. The center also offers classes in creative arts like photography, ceramics, woodworking, and songwriting.

DeSoto State Park

Less than a 15-minute drive from Mentone sits DeSoto State Park, with its rushing waterfalls, woodland boardwalk trail, and zipline spread over more than 3,000 acres. The park is home to DeSoto Falls — the state’s largest — along with Little River, which is a popular spot for kayaking. The last two weeks in October tend to be the peak time for viewing the changing fall foliage around the park.
