"Our stay was perfect! Melanie is the quintessential host, always going the extra mile--and then some--for her guests, On entering the home, we first encountered a chalkboard welcoming us by name, on top of a box with a cornucopia of goodies from the 100-year-old bakery down the street, not to mention gourmet treats for our dog. Melanie provides EVERYTHING you need for your stay, including soaps, toothpaste, shampoos, mouthwash. The towels are custom-made and beautiful, the linens fine. The home itself is magnificent--a glorious trip down memory lane, with functioning old refrigerator, tv, record player, Pac Man player--plus old magazines, photos, ads. board games, toys, postcards everywhere. Wherever your eyes turn you are fascinated by object after object. Shift your feet a bit and see many, many more. And when you think you've seen everything, you haven't. Look carefully and you'll see something (more accurately, some things) you hadn't noticed before. North Belle Vernon is a charming little community, too. A small town with its own mom and pop restaurants and stores. And if for some reason you like national chains, within a couple miles you'll find them, too. It's obvious that I can't say enough good things about Melanie, the home, and North Belle Vernon. Even better, they're all true."
