About Melanie Landherr

We have lived in the area for 9 years. Shane is a marriage therapist and Melanie is a former preschool teacher and now stay-at-home mom. We have a 6 month-old son and a golden retriever.

Melanie Landherr purchased this house in 2009

Why Melanie Landherr chose Bellefonte

We are close enough to the stadium to get there easily without having the traffic. We are a half mile from 99 which makes it easy and quick to travel to anywhere in the area, but also have a quiet backyard for relaxing.

What makes this house unique

Close to restaurants, walking distance to one and walking distance to beer distributor.

Away from the traffic and loud parties, great for a family.

Landed a beauty in Belfonte!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 adults and 2 minors were welcomed and offered everything that Melanie wrote about in the property's overview. Though I did not have the time to meet her; via text or phone, Melanie was cordially available and kindly accommodating, for our groups simple needs. Due to our short time, busy schedule, and a weekend of rain, we didn't come close to using all of the amenities provided in Melanie's cozy and well equipped family home. Were conditions different, I'd have taken advantage of the cooking and grilling options; though, admittedly, as a chef who cooks daily, a few days off and enjoying Belfonte's AND State Colleges fare was relaxing AND DELISH! And, I knew I'd selected the proper house mates when one of the kid's Dad dutifully finger dabbed the few stray muffin crumbs from his son's napkin, off of the table cloth; the other Dad crushed aluminum cans from the overflowing bin to accommodate our contributions; and the boys Mom/Aunt corralled the romping boys indoor activities. As we return to Penn State, 3 years hence, it would be a pleasure to re-visit the Landherr home, should both parties offer and require a return rental. Thanks to Melanie and her family for the wonderful time and hospitality! From our Husker Family to our new Nittany Lion Friends - GBR!!! AND: YOU ARE PENN STATE!!!

Right size, right price, and short drive away

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Plenty of space for a big family gathering. It was only about 15 minutes to the stadium including the tailgate traffic. Really enjoyed hanging out after the game getting pizza from a local joint and playing games with the family.

White out weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. They were ready for us on arrival, house was cleaned, it literally was a home away from home. I plan to rent this home again in future if possible.

Perfect for family Blue & White Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience staying at this home! Our family all met at the house on Friday night and stayed through Sunday. It was a 15 minute ride to campus for the Blue and White game and then we had a great time grilling and hanging out on the deck that evening. The house was clean and everything was provided as mentioned. We are already talking about our next weekend trip to PSU in the fall with hopes of staying here again!
