Mentone Mountain View Inn

25891 County Road 89 , Mentone, AL 35984 USA (Show map)


We are a small Inn with two private King suites which allow our guests an exclusive quiet retreat on the brow of Lookout Mountain Alabama. A spacious common room divides the two suites for added privacy. Our Inn was built in 2008 and is within minutes of Historic Mentone on Lookout Mountain, Alabama. We have what others have said is the best mountain view in the State of Alabama. We are delighted you are considering spending some time at our mountain-top haven. Nestled on the edge of Lookout Mountain in Alabama we offer guests ever-changing panoramic vistas, beautiful sunrises, a morning misty fog hovering in the valley below, a radiant autumn's glow, and a rosy sunset. These are just some of the many breathtaking images that await you. Whether looking to retreat to our quite location and spend your time reading and watching TV or getting out and exploring the area, you will be glad you chose the Mentone Mountain View Inn as your vacation destination. We look forward to seeing you!

I would definitely stay here again. The views are phenomenal!

I stayed here for 3 nights in March 2015. I had a hard time choosing between this B&B and another B&B in Mentone which would have had more gourmet-type breakfast food with homemade jams. Well, I chose Mountain View Inn, and do not regret my choice!! The breakfasts were simple but tasty - just fine - and everything else was SPECTACULAR. From the outside, this home doesn't look like much, but on the inside it is gorgeous and everything is extremely high-end. We stayed in the Suite Sweetheart and loved having a private balcony, a massive jacuzzi with breathtaking views, a king size bed, and a fireplace in our room. I peeked in the other 3 suites and they all looked extremely nice as well. On the final night we were the only ones at the B&B and had the whole place to ourselves, which was great! The innkeeper, Joe, shows up every morning to make breakfast and he's hospitable, warm, and helpful. The panoramic views from the home are worth every penny - I have never stayed anywhere so beautiful.

Refreshing View

If you are looking for a perfect getaway place look no further just book “The View” or The Nook. Paul and Carolyn were so inviting but not pushy. They truly desired for your stay to be just what you wanted it to be. The breakfast was delicious plus an unexpected afternoon snack was scrumptious. The view is truly spectacular, the room is gorgeously decorated but most important comfy. We are returning home refreshed and thankful for the two days.

Perfect weekend get-away

5 on November 13, 2012

We were able to book just one night (10 Nov '12), and the Mountain View Inn and owners Paul and Carolyn surpassed our every expectation. Beautiful panoramic, pastoral mountainviewsetting (we were above thevalley clouds), lovely pine cabin suite accomodations, and very quiet. Carolyn surprised us with a delicous rasberry bar snack for the afternoon, and cooked a scrumptous hot breakfast the next morning. We'll be back, and plan to give get-away weekend gifts to our kids.
