Historic Cragsmere Manor
Incredible views and quiet solitude cloak world-renowned Cragsmere Manor much as they did in the 1860s when W.N. Howell constructed a log cabin on what is now known as the scenic Lookout Mountain Parkway in Mentone, Alabama.
Acquired by former slave Ned Jackson in 1898, historic Cragsmere Manor was expanded through the years by various owners, including F.L. (Hello) Ferrell, who served in the Alabama Legislature in the late 1950s. This prestigious property has held the names of The Cragsmere Club, The Studio Tea Room and Gift Shop, and Cragsmere Manna Restaurant. Today, the private residence showcases hand-hewn log walls and fireplaces from the original structure. Nestled beneath the shady canopy of mature trees with a tranquil brow piazza, the beautifully preserved, six-bedroom home continues to be famous for its commanding vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
Located next door to Cragsmere Manor is this magnificent five-bedroom, Victorian-style home. Perched on the brow of the mountain, the stately home also is wrapped in fabulous views. Approximately 10 miles from Fort Payne, both homes are convenient to downtown Mentone’s quaint shops, art galleries and restaurants.
