Step back in time to one of Alabama's most beautiful historical mansions, featuring large verandas and elegant inn lodging accommodations. Now you can rent the whole house for your family or group vacation. Situated at the base of Lookout Mountain and only two miles from downtown Mentone, Winston Place is centrally located between Chattanooga, Birmingham, and Atlanta. On the National Register of Historic Places, this inn's impressive lavishness of the veranda porches, is undoubtedly one of the state's finest examples of how the master builders planned for open air living made possible in ante-bellum days.

My family and I stayed at Winston Place for 2 nights. It is a beautiful home with gorgeous surroundings! I loved the feel of being in an old southern home near a railroad track. The host was informative about the place's history and entertained us with stories about his Bama football years with Bear Bryant. He also prepared a delicious breakfast for us each morning. I definitely want to go back!

We had a wonderful 2 day stay at Winston Place. My daughter, daughter-in-law and myself were taking my grand-daughter to summer camp for one week. The house is very comfortable and home like. With the exception of the occupied bedrooms, we had the run of the house, balconies,grounds. There is a neat, small family cemetery in the back grounds. the beds are comfortable and the home is clean. The breakfast is great, outstanding french toast! The Mr. Jim is a very good host and knows the history of the home.We plan to stay there next year when we bring my grand-daughter to camp.

The host,Jim, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the house and the area. Though the weather was cold we enjoyed walking the property and plan on sitting on the second story veranda in the Spring!

It always feels like I am coming home. From the moment I walk in (a hug and chocolate chip cookies) to my departure (HUGE southern breakfast). I want to come here often.

My wife spent our 45 wedding anniversary at Windsor Place and it was wonderful. Jim Bunch was a great host and his breakfast was truly delicious. We stayed in the Patrick Henry suite and had a private entrance onto the veranda which was great when you have the love of your life with you looking out over the countryside. Jim has plenty of stories to tell about his time on the Alabama National Championship team which I found to be quite interesting. Thanks Winston Place for a wonderful time.

A great place to get away and relax. The home was elegant and full of history and hospitality. We enjoyed our stay and certainly recommend this to those who are looking for something more than just a hotel room.
