About Us
Move your mouse over the cabin to see the Winter view
Hi Y'all,

We're Robert and Joyce Hoffman, owners of the Artist Retreat vacation rental cabin. Why that name? Because Joyce is an artist and we have an art gallery in the house, to be open when we're in town and the cabin isn't rented. As you may have surmised, I (Robert or Bob) am a different type of "artist" who designs websites (like this site). Go to the Robert Hoffman Consulting website for prices and website examples.
Rental of Artist Retreat is still handled by Tina at Mentone Mountain Getaways, so if you've been here before, you can expect the same great treatment that Tina provided on your last visit. You can also check Tina's Mountain Getaways website for a calendar showing the availability of the cabin.

On this website, you'll find a month-by-month EVENT LIST to show you what to expect if you visit in any month of any year. Under the LOCAL FOOD button above, you'll find a few menus and a list of some great restaurants that we've enjoyed around Mentone. Click the MENTONE menu item for a bunch of information about the town, local businesses, local attractions, activities, etc.

Big news in February 2011!  Just received a neat message from Dish Network "Your free Starz programming is now available. To thank you for being a loyal customer—and in celebration of our 30 years in business—this is confirmation that Starz premium movie channels have been added to your account, free for the next 12 months. You may now enjoy hundreds of Starz movies every month on eight premium channels." 

I think that's fantastic! You can find Starz on the cabin TVs on Channels 350-356. BTW, for a great online listing, go to http://www.titantv.com/ and select Channel Listing 'Dish - Huntsville/Decatur' - it has summaries of each show, etc.

More later ... Bob
