Sailing Ambiance on Lookout Mountain

5 on June 03, 2018

Wow! What a delightful weekend I had staying at Raven Haven!! The host & hostess were the warmth of hospitality with their generosity of time, their beautiful home and enchanting grounds of various gardens. Much space to stroll around & quietness which amplified the gentle breezes & various bird songs. The breakfast was a gourmet’s delight & held me over until early dinner. My room decor was designed to feel very nautical & I just happened to be a sailor so I had best of both Mother Nature’s expressionS. THANK YOU SO MUCH


Relaxing Respite

Wonderful stay, even though it was a rainy weekend, had a great time. The home just lends itself to "escaping" the stresses of life. Tony & Eleanor certainly have the gift of hospitality. Hope to get back soon.

Outstanding Experience

5 on February 20, 2018

My husband and I stayed at Raven Haven for a quick one night getaway. We throughly enjoyed our stay. Mentone is a unique place to visit with antiquing and outdoor opportunities around every bend. But Tony and Eleanor, the owners of Raven Haven, made our stay truly memorable. They are very friendly and great conversationalists but they respect their guests privacy. Eleanor is quite the cook. She had many delicious goodies for us to snack on during our short stay. Breakfast was a culinary masterpiece complimented by fine conversation. My husband and I have done a good bit of traveling and we both agreed that Raven Haven is a top notch BnB!


Awesome Adventure

What a lovely experience at the Raven Haven. This was our first bed and breakfast and we totally had a wonderful time. Eleanor and Tony were most gracious hosts and so very helpful. They had a late night snack awaiting us as we arrived pretty late. The breakfasts were delicious and the advice about the local area helpful. Their grounds are gorgeous and I think my sister, niece and I will be back to just lounge around the gardens in the spring. We laughed on our way home as we thought about writing a thank you note to our lovely hosts. What a pleasant weekend.


Wonderful stay!!!

Just came back from a last minute trip to the mountains. Everything was just PERFECT!!! We chose the Prairie Room. I was lovely. Meticulous attention to detail and convenience and it wad immaculate. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Eleanor and Tony delightful hosts. Can't wait to return in the Spring.


Agree with other 5-Stars, but more ...

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.


Great Getaway

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.


Best all around.

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.


Best B&B in town!

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.
