Mentone has it all! Excellent restaurants, cozy cabins, bed and breakfasts, historic hotels, lodges, Desoto State Park,
and of course camps.
Mentone literally means, "musical mountain spring," and
while natural cascades and rippling streams create a melody all their own, it's
the sound of church chimes and harmonizing homefolk that draw the most interest,
As a special place, Mentone
qualifies naturally! It simply has everything good you'd expect to find in
a mountain environment -- clean streams; lush fragrant flora; unobstructed
vistas; cool temperatures; and a certain peacefulness so hard to find
nowadays. The air here is clear and crisp. There are no flashing
neon signs -- no shopping malls -- no traffic jams. There's almost nothing
to remind you of the city. Streets (more like lanes) are narrow and
twisting paths of little resistance, with cottages tucked here and there.
The poets have said it best...
Mentone, a place the Great God built,
Up near the sunlit sky,
There life is new and friends are true
And days too quickly fly;
Where wearied souls regain their power
And sorrows leave in the night.
Where peace is born with each new morn,
A haven of joy and delight.
