This was an awesome experience going back in time!! The basement kept us busy with more fun then we can image.. board games, pinball, ms Pac-Man, records and many more things! It is in walking distance for antiques stores, skateboard store and Country cafe store(good food and craft store). Also close to a great doggie daycare if you need one Barksburg pet resort and doggie daycare. Loved the clothes line:) The place was very clean... Melanie was a “super host”! This is a place you have to stay…
When I first stumbled upon this cottage on AirBnB, it seemed almost too good to be true. There must be a catch! But everything was as perfect as it seemed online. Melanie is the most thoughtful, gracious host. She provided me with all the information I needed and showed me around. The cottage is just perfect in its retro style! Kitchen is compact but contains everything you’d ever need and then some. The bed is comfortable, bathroom is large & bright. The decor is so much fun & I really felt…
Beautiful place, great hostess, couldn't be happier!
Melanie's place is adorable and a fabulous location right of Route 70 - so much better than a roadside motel. Melanie is a lovely host, leaving me pastries and fresh cut flowers. She welcomed my dog, who loved the sunny backyard and wild bunnies. A nice and restful stop on a long journey cross-country. Thank you Melanie!
The amount of memorabilia in the house is phenomenal. We spent hours looking at all of it and sharing with family and friends.
We stayed here for my wife’s birthday and brought our 3 kids. This place is a gem of a house with all the decorations down memory lane. Melanie added thoughtful touches as there were flowers and a birthday cake when we arrived. The kids ages 8-11 loved the downstairs rec area. Pinball and Pac-Man were great.
The best AirBnB home I’ve ever stayed in.
The detail and thoughtfulness in Melanie's places are unmatched. The place is priceless and you should stay here (and/or the larger home) even if you have absolutely no reason to visit Belle Vernon PA. This is the destination! :) Thank you Melanie for being such a warm host - Fiona and I will be back.
This is the best place I have been to so far. The host was beyond amazing. The hospitality was beyond words. I would recommend this place to any couple looking for some quality time to spend together.. Thank you Melanie for everything
We truly loved staying here. The area was safe and we enjoyed walking our dogs. The house was comfortable and Melanie was a wonderful host! We had a great time trying the local restaurants. You can’t go wrong staying here. Very convenient to everything.
