The unique Chateau De La Famile home is beautiful with many added extras to make your stay more comfortable. You experience an awesome mountain top view without other homes close to you. The cottage tree house is an added bonus. It was perfect for our newly wed grandchild. The property is close to any activity that you might want to experience. Desoto Falls was a fantastic place to visit. There are many hiking trails to explore. You can experience great places to shop or eat in Mentone, Fort Payne, or even Chattanooga is about an hour from the Cosumano's home. Any question or problem is answered promptly. This home was our families favorite after Christmas vacation!

Great property and friendly staff.

We stayed for a long weekend to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday with friends & family. The property is very spacious & the views are great. We spent a ton of time in the living room of the main house with the fire going playing games & doing karaoke. We had 12 people spread throughout the main house & detached house. This felt like a good amount of people & everyone had their own space. It might be a little tight with the full capacity of 20. We elected to have the catered breakfast which I would highly recommend. It is also an added perk that you have a concierge contact leading up to your stay & a contact that is available throughout your stay. We definitely recommend the house & would stay again!

Great house with a fantastic view!
Stayed November, 2019
A great place for five couples. Not wild about sleeper sofas so sleeping more than 10 isn't an option for us. With that said, it was a great place to kick back, relax, and enjoy the view. The only problem I see is the amount of spam you get when you book through Verbo. Avoid them if you can.

Extremely easy! Owners responsive and staff friendly and helpful. Enjoyed speaking with Cathy and Flor. Pleasantly surprised to meet the owners. Beautiful history about their lives and this place! We all enjoyed our stay! Left with many family memories to cherish!

Stayed on the property for a family reunion in the area and the views were great! The layout of the main house was unique. The accommodations were excellent and the owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. Would definitely rent again if we come back to this area.

Wonderful overall experience for our family’s Fourth of July vacation. From the very start the owner & property manager were more than informative about any question or concern I presented them with & truly made this process easy & painless. The property completely accommodated our family of 15 comfortably. The property/views were amazing with many places available to sit back, relax & enjoy your surroundings. The property was in great location to many attractions & surrounding restaurants. My family and I truly enjoyed this experience & Would HIGHLY recommend to others.
Stayed July, 2019
We very much enjoyed this home, each family had some privacy with their own "level", My father-in-law, who was the guest of honor, occupied the middle level with no stairs and that became the main gathering place for the whole family. We all very much enjoyed the outdoor screened porches as well as the gathering area with the firepit. My New England relatives left with a new appreciation for the beauty of "Sweet Home Alabama". Thanks to Chanelle and General Joe for sharing their beautiful home.
