Just a little ways south of Chattanooga, Mentone sits atop Lookout Mountain near the Alabama-Georgia border. Mentone is known for its log cabins, outdoor recreation, and Southern hospitality.
Mentone is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians, so you’ll be within a few minutes of a number of outdoor activities. Desoto State Park features the famous falls, miles of hiking trails, and RV camping. Cloudmont Ski & Gold Resort offers year-round activities and chalet rentals, and you’ll be just a short drive from attractions including Rock City and Ruby Falls.
