“The Wildflower Cafe is also a short walk (~5 min) away from the cabin. They are famous for their tomato pie but all of the food is to die for and the atmosphere is amazing. Throughout the day local musician Tony Goggans plays his guitar and sings for guest’s entertainment. Often there are different live musicians who perform while guests are eating dinner on the weekends. The Wildflower cafe allows you to bring your own bottle of wine (they do not sell alcohol). You can purchase a bottle of wine at the Mentone Market. They will provide glasses and even uncork your bottle for you! The restaurant doubles as a boutique with local art and handmade goods that are available to purchase. The restaurant tends to get busy on weekend evenings so we recommend calling ahead to make a dinner reservation. ”

“The Green Leaf Grill is also a short walk (~5 min) away from the cabin. They have award winning catfish and their ‘Bama Grown Fried Catfish Sandwich has been featured in Delta Sky Magazine. If fish isn’t your thing, we highly recommend their fried green tomato BLT. All of their food is delicious, so you can’t go wrong!”

Street Address
“Southern Style Log Furniture. Southern Style Log Furniture is the shop of local woodworker Jeff Rymer. Jeff creates everything from wooden beds and chairs to porch railings and tables. If you’re a fan of our front porch railing, then we highly recommend you visit his shop as he is the talented artist behind our front porch.”

“Log Cabin Village Shops. Right next to the Green Leaf Grill are the Log Cabin Village shops. Here you can find a collection of small shops selling everything from antiques to homemade soaps and other locally crafted goods. The shops are only open from Friday to Sunday but are some of our favorite places to purchase souvenirs and gifts.”

Gas Station
“The Mentone Market is located directly next door and is one of the best places to grab a quick bite any time of day. For breakfast we recommend trying their waffles! The prices are very reasonable and we love being able to walk next-door to grab a burger and (at the time of this writing) they serve the only draft beer in town! ”
