Our family of five rented this home about half an hour from Penn State so we could tour the campus and go to a football game. The home was exactly as advertised and Melody was extremely quick and helpful in answering our questions and providing assistance. The home was very clean and organized and provided more than enough room for all of us. We would recommend Melody's home for anyone visiting PSU or the surrounding area.

I personally liked the forest in the back yard and the fireplace in the middle of the yard. My family liked the patio and how it faces the forest. We also liked the wildlife. We saw many deers. We liked how quite it is and how it's really relaxing being out of the city and noise. I interacted with some of the local and they were super nice. A+.

We stayed last year and felt very comfortable and happy with all accomdations and communication. It was in the exact location we were looking for and so we decided to go back again this year. They had upgraded the fire pit area which added to it's appeal. Again, as last year, we were thoroughly impressed and very happy with everything there was to offer. Melody was very helpful in making sure we had directions due to road closures and that we had everything we would we need. We would definitely visit again.

Good place and as expected based on pictures and reviews. host was proactive in emailing us and even informed us of some road closings in the area due to some rain storms. We knew we were in the country, but we didn't expect our cell phones not to work (AT&T). Maybe a heads up in the description. That issue was compounded by the in house WiFi not working. So we felt a little stranded at times.

Response from Melody:
Jay, sorry about the internet. Service was out for the entire town, unfortunately I didn't know about the outage until after it was over. Yes, cell phone coverage is spotty for AT&T there. Per you suggestion, I have added it to the description.

I'm a country girl who always had a passion to travel. I love to see the sights and find that out of the way spot where the locals go. At the end of a busy day, I want to relax in a comfortable setting. I'm always entertaining and every year I host an annual outing for six girlfriends from high school and college. Last year we went to Tuscany. I've traveled the world, but one of my favorite views is the overlook as you drive south on interstate 80 between Snow Shoe and Milesburg, PA.
