Avoiding repetition of other justifiable 5-star reviews, a bit more. Hospitality is outstanding -- but especially if staying more than one night, a guest will leave considering Tony and Eleanor new and good friends. They treat guests like family. Casablanca Room has special comforts -- ground floor, excellent lighting, large walk-in shower with seat, raised toilet, along with comfortable bed and rocker. The gardens are worth a morning stroll before or after breakfast. Yes, other reviews rate the food outstanding. Tony credits Eleanor as a "good cook," but she adds that Tony helps inspire new creations, and he is participant in preparation and presentation. To call them cooks is a disservice. They are culinary artisans. It's easy to see why Raven Haven is first choice among Mentone's B&Bs.

Amazing place in the quiet country. Tony and Eleanor are super Inn keepers. The food was excellent. We have food allergies, lactose and gluten, and Eleanor prepared dishes just for us. The Inn is just a few minutes from Mentone which has excellent restaurants. A fantastic get away place for an anniversary, birthday, or just to relax for a few days. We plan to return soon.

We have stayed at several B&B and this one tops them all. Excellent hosts that really care for their tenants. Mr. Tony and Mrs. Eleanor are 2 of the nicest, loving, and most caring people we have ever met. Could not ask for a better experience. We will most certainly be staying for another visit.

The best breakfast, & best B&B in the area... I loved that they shared advice & helped us plan our trip & made restaurant reservations when wanted.

We had a wonderful getaway weekend at the Raven Haven! The home is beautiful and Mrs. Eleanor's snacks and breakfast were absolutely delicious. Time with friends in this beautiful home was wonderful, but meeting and getting to know Mr. Tony and Mrs. Eleanor was priceless! We very much look forward to our next visit

Tony and Eleanor are the best!! The accommodation were great and the food was outstanding. They are two wonderful people who know how to run a first class Bed and Breakfast. We will definitely be back!!

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, and Tony and Eleanor made it a very pleasant stay. Their food was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. We stayed in the Prairie Room, we loved it, it had so much character. We will be making a trip in the future to stay here again.

I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about the Raven Haven Bed & breakfast and it's incredible owners Anthony & Eleanor Teverino. From the moment that I arrived I felt completely welcome and at home in a way that I cannot even describe. From the welcoming serenity and presence of the warm inviting home and décor, to the tranquility of the majestic surroundings, to the immediate acceptance of the precious couple that owns this amazing home, I knew from the moment that I walked in that I would not want to leave. I had the privilege of being the sole guest for the weekend and was still treated like an absolute princess. The breakfast that was prepared and served would most definitely rival any five-star restaurant, but the company made it all the more incredible and absolutely priceless. I would most definitely recommend this little slice of heaven to anyone and plan on going back myself as often as I can possibly make the trip. -Tracie Smith

A delightful Bed and Breakfast — beautiful decor, excellent breakfast (and dessert!), incredible lawn and gardens, and most congenial hosts.

Raven Haven far exceeded our expectations. We were looking for a quiet getaway and this was the perfect place. The grounds were impeccably maintained and gorgeous. Our room (Prairie Room) was decorated tastefully and rustic that went along perfectly with the theme. Tony and Eleanor were the most gracious of hosts and went out of their way to make us feel at home. I can't say enough about the breakfast the morning we left. In my 50 years on earth I can truly say this was the most delicious and creative meal I've ever had. She did some wonderful twists with eggs and amazing french toast. Everything was made completely from scratch right down to the jams we were served. This was a wonderful experience and we left completely rested and revitalized. I highly recommend Raven Haven to anyone wanting a lovely experience with peace and serenity. We will definitely be back but not soon enough for us. You will not be disappointed in the quaint B&B.

My husband and I were in need of a few days of r and r so we chose Raven Haven as our "go to" place. It turned out to be the best decision we could have made. The room was well appointed, spacious, and best of all, we loved the walk-in shower! The gardens around the property were beautiful and so well thought out. Last but not least, the breakfasts we were served were like something out of a gourmet magazine! Best of all was the hospitality of our host and hostess. They are such friendly people, and made us feel so welcome. We can't wait to go back!

We loved our stay. The grounds were very relaxing and the house felt like home. The Nautical room was spacious, with a sky light and private entrance. Tony and Eleanor treated us wonderfully and served gluten-free goodies and breakfast at our request. They really made us feel special on our anniversary.

Our stay was wonderful. The food was delicious. The grounds were beautiful and we would recommend this B&B to anyone.

My wife and I stayed at “Raven Heaven” for two nights in the second week of May. This was a great time to be there since the summer had not yet officially started. It was still too early for a few of the stores in Mentone to open, but it was worth missing the large numbers of vacationers. It was a very beautiful area to visit, however, the best part was Raven Haven itself and its owners, Anthony and Eleanor Teverino. Anthony and Eleanor could not have been better host and in only two days I felt like we were good friends. I appreciated their availability on the premises 24 hours a day. They were continually looking after our every need, yet they were not pushy or disruptive of our privacy. I just cannot say enough for these two folks. My wife and I have been staying at B&B’s for over twenty-five years and Anthony and Eleanor made this our best experience. I liked the Prairie Room we stayed in because it was separate from the main building. Although it is described as rustic it had all the luxuries we wanted. The other three rooms had direct access to the main room, kitchen and dining room which would be nice during poor weather but I liked the additional privacy the Prairie Room provided. If you are considering a stay here don’t hesitate, you will not be disappointed!
5 on April 25, 2016
My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's and we found the Raven Haven to be our most welcoming and comfortable experience yet. Tony and Ellie are remarkable Inn Keepers. They made us feel at home as soon as we walked in the door. The room was very well decorated, quiet and comfortable. It was enjoyable and relaxing just to walk around the grounds. The breakfast selections were unique, deliciously prepared and served with graciousness. We highly recommend the Raven Haven as a true "Get Away" time.
5 on April 25, 2016
From the moment that we arrived at Raven Haven B & B, Tony made us feel at home. Tony and Eleanor were absolutely delightful to be around and the conversation flowed freely. The breakfast each morning was plentiful and delicious. When Eleanor heard that we had never had biscuits with chocolate gravy even though we are from Alabama, she made them for us the next morning. Boy - were they awesome. Eleanor had a decadent dessert waiting in the fridge each night which we enjoyed with a cup of coffee. The perfect way to end the day. She even shared a couple of recipes with me. The grounds and gardens were gorgeous. We stayed in the Nautical room and it was better than we expected. This was our first time staying at a B & B and we were pleasantly surprised. They truly made our 23rd Anniversary weekend special. We left feeling as though we were leaving family and hope to be able to return soon. Karen & Raney

Very inviting and hospitable. We will visit there again.

We always try to spend K's birthday at Raven Haven. He and I love this B&B and the owners! Their home becomes your home the minute you enter. Breakfast is magnificent and will leave you full until evening.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Ravens Haven very much! This is our third time this year to stay with Tony and Elanor. It's so nice, clean and I can't say enough about the food! It is the perfect place to relax and do nothing. The gardens around the home are so beautiful and a lovely place to sit and read or just relax. K Tony and Elanor are perfect hosts! You will not be sorry if you choose Ravens Haven for your next getaway!! Love it so much we'll be planning our next stay soon!!

First time in Mentone AL. My wife and I wanted a quick get-a-way from Chattanooga, TN to celebrate our "55" years of marriage. I went on line to find the best in north AL. I read the reviews and called Tony. We stayed in the "nautical room". Only $15 more and it is the most spacious with a private balcony and steps down to the parking lot, great for bring in luggage (two exits from room). Great bedding and great breakfast, Eleanor prepared part (peaches and cream French toast) and Tony cooked the eggs and meat. We enjoyed their fellowship. Yes there was a bottle of champagne in an ice bucket next to our bed. DL Chattanooga TN

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, so we were not sure what to expect. We were not disappointed! Tony and Eleanor were such thoughtful hosts. Eleanor makes a delicious dessert each night and the breakfast prepared the next morning was spectacular! The room was very clean and comfortable and decorated beautifully. Then there's the immaculate flower gardens throughout the property. There's so much to see. If you want a lovely place to spend in peace and quiet tranquility, this is your place. You won't be disappointed.
5 on May 28, 2015
This B&B ranks number one of all we have visited not only because of its charm but the hospitality of the owners was unmatched. The gardens and rooms were absolutely beautiful and the food exceptional. We came away refreshed , relaxed and the feeling we gained new friends. We will recommend this B&B to all of our friends ,family and certainly will make return visits!
5 on May 26, 2015
We will return to the Raven Haven Bed & Breakfast at the first opportunity! My husband and I began the Memorial Day weekend there. It was an ideal place to unwind and accept a bit of pampering from hospitable hosts, Tony and Eleanor Teverino. A decadent homemade dessert awaited us upon our evening arrival. The house was spotless and the bed so comfortable. We enjoyed the family-style breakfast with other guests as we sat down to a sumptuous meal. The gardens were beautiful. The hosts were so gracious and welcoming. They provided several "extras" I could mention here, but don't want to spoil the surprises. In addition, the area has a lot to offer. Don't miss out on this one! Joy Jones

Our stay was so wonderful and really exceeded our expectations. We had such a very nice time and enjoyed out hosts so much. They were very informative and interesting. The location was perfect and the breakfast was delicious each morning;and, each evening there was a nice surprise dessert waiting for us when we returned. Eleanor even shared some of her wonderful recipes. We hope to come back soon. Tony and Eleanor, thanks for your kind and warm hospitality. Betty and Tim Mitchell.

Raven Haven is stupendous! Eleanor and Tony are superb hosts and anticipate your every need. The rooms are thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, not to mention impeccably clean. I can't wait for a future stay when the gardens are in bloom. Absolutely a lovely stay in every way.
5 on January 22, 2015
Tony and Eleanor were so welcoming, and the room we had was the Casablanca Room. We slept really well in this lovely quiet location, waking to a wonderful breakfast which included a choice of dishes, some being Eleanor's own creations, all of which were delicious. There was a choice of drinks, hot water, coffee and soft drinks, and we felt very at home, and felt valued as guests. We had freedom to come and go as we pleased, and the property is set back from the road, but within an easy drive of Mentone's centre. Thank you for some great memories which we shall take back to England with us.
5 on November 10, 2014
Tony and Eleanor are greats hosts and wonderful people! I highly recommend it if you are wanting a quiet and serene place to stay. The breakfast and service is wonderful! Each room has a theme and the grounds are nice with little walking trails. We enjoyed every minute of it.

One of our best B&B experiences. Tony & Eleanor are wonderful host. Delicious breakfast. Our room was clean, roomy, quiet & comfortable. Very relaxing weekend and we hope to retun soon.
5 on July 24, 2014
Eleanor and Tony have such a beautiful home and they generously welcomed me for a weekend visit. Their gardens and every detail were immaculately done. Tony handled the reservation and all communications quickly and made sure I had just what I wanted. Eleanor even cooked delicious gluten-free food to accommodate my dietary needs. I felt like I was at home with 'mom' - she even left me a yummy apple crumble on the sideboard when i came in late one night. Every bite of breakfast was perfect. Both of them were kind and generous, with delightful humor and graciousness. I look forward to staying at Raven Haven again soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Raven Haven. The hosts were very friendly and put us at ease, the home was spotless and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! Very relaxing weekend!
5 on February 20, 2014
We have stayed with Tony and Eleanor for many years and will continue to return "home". Their home/property is very pretty and everything is spotless! The breakfasts rival any top restaurant. They have spoiled us for any other B&B!
5 on February 17, 2014
Tony and Eleanor were the absolute best! We enjoyed getting to know them and especially enjoyed the wonderful home cooked food. After a great dinner in Mentone, we arrived back at Raven Haven to wonderful homemade dessert! The beautiful accommodations were the perfect match for a weekend in the mountains. Getting to know the sweet hosts was the icing on the cake!

Oh, wow!!!!! What a joy it was to spend 3 nights at Raven Haven! Tony and Eleanor are so precious and have a real gift for hospitality! Their home and yards are beautiful . We thoroughly enjoyed every minute with them! They're so thoughtful and do so many things to make you feel totally welcome and at home. You'll feel as if you've known them forever and feel like family. The breakfasts are absolutely fantastic! They greet you when you arrive with hugs and homemade snack breads. There's always a delicious dessert waiting for you after you get back from supper. It was so restful to sit or walk around their yards and enjoy all the flowers and butterflies and goldfish pond. We even saw 3 deer! What a wonderful joy it was to be there with them ! We're definitely planning to come back!!!!!

"Raven Haven" of Mentone, Alabama offers its fortunate guests a beautiful and quiet setting, exquisite gardens, gorgeous decor, gracious and attentive hosts, as well as outstanding preparation and presentation of cuisine.

My husband and I journeyed to Mentone over the weekend and had the very pleasant opportunity to stay at Raven Haven. We were immediately made welcome, even though we arrived early. The inn is located in a beautiful, peaceful setting just outside town. It is exceptionally clean and inviting--you feel "at home" from the minute you arrive. The beds are comfortable, the fellowship wonderful and the food is absolutely extraordinary. Each room is themed and the Casablanca room is very romantic and handicap accessible. From the evenings special dessert to the wonderful gourmet breakfast our stay was wonderful, If you are looking for some R&R or just a chance to reconnect with nature, spirit or that special someone, Raven Haven is well worth the trip! You will NOT be disappointed.
5 on July 24, 2013
My husband and I have been to Raven Haven twice now, and even sent my parents there for their anniversary. We have never met a sweeter couple than Tony and Eleanor. It truly feels like we are coming home. They go above and beyond to make your stay unforgettable. There is a homemade dessert waiting for you each evening when you return from dinner that is out of this world good. I haven't had anything that compares with the breakfasts. There is something new every morning and it is some of the most delicious food that I have ever eaten. I would recommend this place to anyone! You won't be disappointed.
5 on July 22, 2013
This was our first B&B experience; was booked by my parents for us, whom had already stayed here. We felt right at home with the warm friendly welcome and personal touches on everything. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The garden is beautiful and the breakfast is out of this world! We will be returning next year! Highly recommended!!
5 on June 29, 2013
We booked a night with Raven Haven for our 33rd Anniversary. What an exciting surprise. Tony and Eleanor were incredible hosts and took great pride in our comfort for the night. The Casa Blanca Room was better than described on their website and I didn't want to get up the next day I slept so soundly. The ability to relax and not listen the cars driving by your room all night was great and a walk of their grounds displays a love of gardening. Just sitting under the gazebo in a rocking chair and listening to the birds and the fountain were a delight. Breakfast was incredible and reflects Eleanor's delight in making sure that not only do you have plenty, but variety as well. Tony's method of cooking a breakfast ham will have you coming back for seconds. We'll be back and next time we have to decide whether to book the nautical room or the prairie room to try them all.
5 on May 20, 2013
My daughter and I stayed in the Casablanca Room the Friday night before our Mother & Daughter weekend at Camp Skyline. We had a very peaceful nights sleep. It was so quiet! The bed was super comfy and the room was beautifully decorated. My daughter thought the pictures of Humphrey and Ingrid were actually of Tony and Eleanor. Tony and Eleanor were delightful hosts and great cooks. Eleanor surprised us with homemade scones! We will definitely stay here again!! Michelle Little
5 on April 27, 2013
My family and I have stayed at Raven Haven Bed and Breakfast 16 times! Each and every time was outstanding! It is always very clean and has such a "home" feeling. The breakfast is never anything but perfect! Tony and Eleanor have a gift of making everyone feel welcome. They always go out of their way to make you comfortable and feel as if you're at home.
5 on April 24, 2013
My wife and I chose Raven Haven to celebrate our recent anniversary. We have stayed in B & Bs in the past but not often. Most times we are just looking for a good clean motel in which to spend the night. Because my wife is a mountain lover she selected Mentone as a good place to visit. Reading reviews, especially of the menu offerings, helped us decide on Raven Haven. As you can see from our ratings above, we found everything to be top-notch. One couldn't ask for better hosts. Tony and Eleanor were thoughtful and considerate, available when needed but non intrusive. My wife thoroughly enjoys visiting new restaurants and trying her taste-buds on new dishes. Even so, she managed to taste a couple of new, deliciously prepared breakfast items. There were several others that were new to me and they were all delicious. The room we shared was large, clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We did have opportunity to see the other rooms and thought any one would have been just as pleasing. We found the Mentone area beautiful to drive through and visited several points of interest. Everywhere we stopped we found that "southern hospitality" that travelers often speak of, and would not hesitate to recommend the area to anyone who likes the mountains.

We can not say enough about how wonderful and peaceful our weekend stay was with Tony and Eleanor at the Raven Haven. We have never stayed at a B&B before and immediately felt safe and like family. We were pampered to the point of feeling like royalty with the gourmet home cooked breakfast, afternoon sweets treat, dessert in the evening and the morsels of chocolate left on our turned down bed with a sweet note at the end of the day. If you want to get away from it all and be pampered at the same time, this is the place to stay. We are already planing another trip there in the spring with friends to see the beautiful grounds in full bloom and just kick back for a few days. The gardens were gorgeous and whimsical. Thank you again Tony and Eleanor, for a wonderful restful weekend. Donna and Randy Underwood.
5 on October 15, 2012
We just returned from spending our anniversary at Raven Haven. Tony and Eleanor were charming hosts. The rooms are wonderful and my wife fell in love with the gardens. Every breakfast was a gourmet affair that couldn't be beat in any 5 star restaurant. If you are looking for a quiet place to escape to with your special someone this is the place.
5 on September 24, 2012
Coming to Raven Haven is, indeed, like coming home. The charming setting, furnishings, peacefulness, and delicious food (Oh, the food!) made for an unforgettable stay. But it is Eleanor and Tony who make Raven Haven the truly excellent experience it is! Their friendliness and graciousness is beyond compare. By the time we left we felt we were leaving old friends. This was our first visit, but certainly not our last. This place tugs at your heartstrings! Bill and Flo
5 on September 15, 2012
Can't wait to return! This was our fourth visit and hope there will be many more. Tony and Eleanor have to be the best B&B host and hostess in the southeast. We stayed in the Casablanca room this time but each room is as nice as the other and the breakfast is beyond belief with all the homemade sides etc. And then there are the gardens! We spent more time outside than inside strolling through the beautiful flowers and shrubs and couldn't believe there wasn't a fee for that part of our stay! Can't wait 'til next time!
4.4 on September 11, 2012
Quiet. Very clean. Best service and beautiful well-kept grounds. Good food & Tony & Elle were for sure the Host & Hostess with the Mostest.

The most peaceful B&B we've ever stayed in. The surroundings are quiet and relaxing; the gardens delightful, and Tony and Eleanor are the most helpful and kindest hosts we've ever experienced. The breakfast was DELICIOUS. If you're looking for a place to relax and reflect among a beautiful natural setting, this is the place for you. We cannot wait to have time for a longer stay!

We spent our 40th wedding anniversary at RH. It was an outstanding experience and we would highly recommend this BB to others. The host were wonderful.
5 on August 05, 2012
We only got to stay one night but it was great! We stayed in the Prarie Room, Tony and Eleanor have a great time with the decorating. The room was spotless, the friendlyness of the Teverinos in exceptional. We had a good time roaming thru their gardens. Will return if in the area. Bill and Jane Ross
5 on August 04, 2012
One of the very best getaways we have had. The owners of the Raven haven in Mentone, AL make you feel very welcome. The unique food was wonderful. Will surely go again.
5 on May 23, 2012
This is the first B&B my wife and i have ever been to, and it was a great time. The rooms were clean, and comfortable. The landscape was really nice and was so relaxing to walk around. Anthony and Eleanor was the best host, and if you needed anything at any time they would be right there for you. The breakfast was the best. Eleanor is a great cook. The main reason we liked it so much is they made you fill right at home. We will go back for sure.
5 on April 22, 2012
Returning to Raven Haven after several years was just like coming home. Tony and Eleanor Teverino are so warm and welcoming, and they provide the perfect setting for a quiet, restful getaway. I highly recommend.
5 on April 21, 2012
My 90-year old Mother and I stayed at Raven Haven last night. It was a wonderful experience. The hosts are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. The house and grounds are beautiful and immaculate. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and I can honestly say that they are one of the very best. I would highly recommend a stay with them.

Raven Haven is a beautiful house in a beautiful mountain location with beautiful fall colors. The proprietors are a wonderful couple who made us feel at home and serve a wonderful, huge breakfast.
5 on November 06, 2011
We needed a quiet and peaceful place to unwind and this was by far the quietest and most peaceful place we've stayed in the Mentone area in the last 15 years. Tony and Eleanor were exceptional hosts. Our only regret was that we had to leave so soon. We will definately be back.
5 on October 29, 2011
My sister and I spent one night at Raven Haven in October. Loved the hospitality, food and quiet, beatutiful surroundings.
5 on October 28, 2011
This was my first time in a B&B and it was wonderful. We were treated like family, the food was amazing and the rooms were quaint and perfect for a getaway.

A wonderfully pleasant, quiet, beautiful place. Tony and Eleanor make it feel better than home!
5 on September 02, 2011
This is the cleanest, most accomodating place we have ever stayed. The food is fabulous and Tony and Eleanor are so friendly and go the "extra mile" to make you feel at home. We have gone numerous (over 20) times and each time we are pleasantly suprised with something unique and delicious for breakfast. Don and Betty Blackburn
5 on August 01, 2011
Accommodations are the best, food is the best, the grounds are well-kept with pretty flowers to enjoy, the hosts go above and beyond to make your stay great.
5 on July 17, 2011
My husband and I decided to run away from home this weekend, and were referred to the Raven Haven by another B&B. Much to our surprize we were able to get a room sight unseen. We quickly made it to the inn only to find the most beautiful and truely scenic property. We were greeted by Tony and Eleanor, our wonderful hosts, and shown to our beautiful room. They took wonderful care of us, made reservations for dinner at the Wildflower Cafe, and even had dessert waiting for us when we got back. We sat on the veranda with some of the other guests talking till after 10:00. This morning, our breakfast could not have been better! I highly reccommend a vist to the Raven Haven, I know we will be back!!
4.6 on July 04, 2011
My wife and I enjoyed a night away and a day on our motorcycles. Tony & Eleanor were fantastic hosts. You feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The set up our evening plans and had desert waiting for us when we returned. Breakfast was fantastic and everyone joining around the breakfast table was a real blessing for my wife and I. We plan to bring our parents back next time, as they will really enjoy the finely cared for grounds. It has been over 10 years since our last visit to Mentone, but we will not stay away that long again.
5 on June 13, 2011
We stayed at Raven Haven for 2 nights in the Nautical Room while going to the Rhododendron Festival each day. We have been staying at B&Bs for the last 25 years and RH is the best. The breakfasts are fantastic with at least six selections at each meal as well as coffee, juice, and muffins. There is always plenty to eat. Coffee and hot water for tea is available around around the clock clock and Eleanor prepares special desserts for the evening after dinner at a local restaurant. The rooms are always clean and neat and each evening the beds will have a special message and a candy and mint. The hosts provide everything that is needed to ensure a pleasant stay. The grounds and gardens are lovely. There is a walking trail through the small wooded area behind the RH where one can see several species of birds. The walking area is especially helpful in working up and appetite prior to the wonderful breakfast. All in all, RH is a great place to relax, enjoy good food, good friends, and a joyous weekend.
5 on June 06, 2011
This get away was a gift from friends who knew we really enjoy going to B&Bs more than the typical resort. This one had everything you could ask for and more. I especially love flower gardening and Tony and Eleanor made you feel like you had come home and they welcomed you like lost relatives. The food was delicious and we can't wait for the chance to go back for another visit.
4.4 on May 30, 2011
When you pull up to Raven haven, You are instantly made comfortable and the owners Anthony and Eleanor go out of their way to make your visit wonderful. The 10 acre grounds are landscaped like a botanical garden -- we walked through and being avid gardeners, we were delighted at the collection of flowering perennials. The food was truly wonderful, they prepared home made snacks in the evening! The rooms were very comfortable, furnished better than any hotel. It was a delightful visit and we will return soon.
5 on April 08, 2011
My husband and I spend our honeymoon at the Raven Haven in March of 2000 in the Casablanca room and decided to come back for our 11th Anniversary. This time around, we decided to stay in the Nautical Room. It was fabulous. Both Tony & Eleanor remembered us and treated us just like family. They made every effort to ensure our comfort. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to get away for the night or longer. The gardens are absolutely breathtaking.
5 on February 17, 2011
My husband and I spent 3 days there. It was a surprise from my husband for Valentines Day. We stayed in the Casablanca room. It was gorgeous. The B&B was so warm and comfortable. The smells of candles and baked goodies made it like being at home. The breakfast each morning was delicious!!! We recommend this B&B to all our family and friends. We will definitely be back. Tony and Eleanor, the Innkeepers, were wonderful. They were two of the sweetest people we have ever come across in our lives. They were a joy to sit and talk to. Endless stories about thier lives, where they met, came from, how they came to be where they are today. They make you feel like family instantly. We love them to death. If we had to rate it, we would give it an A+++ from the moment we arrived until we left. They took such good care of us and made us feel so welcomed in their home. They had my roses sitting on a table with a candle and chocolates. Eleanor made my favorites, chocolate covered strawberries. I can't wait to go back and make new memories!!!.

There are no negative reviews. Everything is true and does not need repeating. Hosts are sincere, earnest, and tops in everything they do. Especially enjoyable for Christians, republicans, or both.
Your review is appreciated,we wish to state that all people are welcome at Raven Haven. Thank you.

Vi and I would like to thank you and your wife for making our stay with you so pleasant. We enjoyed our short stay immensely. The company was great, the food excellent, and the setting very relaxing and enjoyable. THANK YOU!!! The Raven Haven is a very pleasant drive from the Atlanta area. When you arrive you know instantly the owners are wonderful friendly people. Being just off the beaten path makes the setting very relaxing and restful. Be sure and visit the caves in the area and take the tours of them. Enjoy your stay at the Raven Haven.

They attended to every wish and then some. The hom and grounds are so beautiful, welcoming, comfortable, refreshing. (And the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful!) Can't wait to return.

We travel to Mentone every year for the "Miatas At Mentone" event. We stayed at Raven Haven for the third time this year and we enjoy the B&B as much as the Miata driving. The breakfast is to die for. The yard is a botanical garden. The hosts could not be any nicer or more accommodating. Try it! You'll be hooked. Dave & Karen - members RCMC

Raven Haven is a beautiful, quiet place very close to DeSoto State Park and Cloudland Canyon. The grounds are landscaped with flowers and water features; the rooms are adorable; and the food is deliciously gourmet and plentiful. Tony and Eleanor are charming, entertaining, extremely helpful, and very accomodating hosts. It was the best B & B experience we've ever had.
