The Destination
A drive along the Lookout Mountain Parkway showcases the surrounding mountains' dramatic blooms and shrub-covered cliffs—rhododendrons and azaleas cling to the craggy rocks in the spring and summer, and mainstay dogwood trees provide foliage for most of the year. Tucked away in this southern ridge of the Appalachians, the Alabama town of Mentone has long beckoned families and couples seeking to reconnect with nature. Wander the paths cut throughout Buck's Pocket State Park or head underground to Sequoyah Caverns. Rock climbing, rappelling, and more are available for adventurous spirits, while thrills of the creative sort can be had perusing the Art Gallery at Mentone and shopping for locally produced keepsakes and antiques.

The Digs
Located within walking distance of DeSoto Falls, Nippersink Lodge takes its name from the Cherokee word for "little river." This rustic bed and breakfast features a large stone fireplace, a screened-in front porch, and hickory furnishings. Along with plenty of space to laze, your room boasts a private bath with a tub or shower, serene views, and a lack of TVs to compliment the peace and quiet (the lodge does offer internet access if you can't imagine being entirely unplugged). Stop by the dining room for an included breakfast in the morning, then hit the trails for a guided hike or rent a canoe or kayak and explore on your own.

  • "Nippersink Lodge offers the very best of Mentone and North Alabama. The rustic main lodge is beautiful with a great fireplace and the best sitting porch we have ever seen."
