Snow Skiing In Alabama

Yep, that’s right!  Snow skiing in Alabama really does exist.  Before I tell you about the ONE and ONLY SKI RESORT in ALABAMA…here are a few pics of the ‘Farmhouse’ where we stayed during our visit to Mentone, AL.  This was actually located about 10 miles from Mentone in the small town of Cloudland, GA.  Because we were determined to take our little Pomeranian, Della with us I knew we would have to find somewhere besides a hotel or B&B to stay.  I started with Airbnb since I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every stay I’ve ever booked with them.  I couldn’t find exactly what we were looking for this time so I decided to give HomeAway a try and to  my surprise I found the perfect little ‘Farmhouse’ that I knew we could all appreciate (Mom included).

Pics aren’t much to look at but If you CLICK HERE you can see more pics of the ‘Farmhouse’ inside and out!  Below are a few pics from the Green Leaf Grill in Mentone.  Let me just tell you this is the cutest little cabin restaurant EVER!!!  It is decorated to perfection and the food was very good!  Pics below…

We ate outside on the porch so Della was able to join us!

 It doesn’t look like much from these pics (below) but the town of Metone, AL is just as cute as it wants to be and there is definitely more to see and do than what I have here!

Next two pics are from the Cloudmont Ski Resort where you can ski and stay in a quaint chalet.  Chalet #5 overlooks a creek and covered bridge.  A few other things the resort offers is golf and horseback ridding.  Even if you’re not looking to do any of the activities they offer, I still suggest visiting the area.  This was my second time visiting and I definitely want to go back!

The next three pictures are from Cloudland Canyon State Park which was only about 30 minutes from where we stayed.  The views were absolutely amazing.  I wish we could have hiked around but we had our mom with us and she can’t get around quite as well as we can.

The last of the pictures were taken at the Terminal Brewhouse in Chattanooga, TN.  This was about 35-40 minutes from the park.  Whenever we can hit up more than one state at a time we take full advantage of it!  Once again we had Della with us so we were able to eat outside with her.  Mom walked across the street for something a little finer than pizza.  She hates that we always eat pizza!  We did however try the Feta Basil Olive Oil Spread atop fresh baked bread and it was YUM! 🙂

Della probably had more fun than any of us and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
