About Melodie Hodges
Our family has owned this building since 1968. It was a grocery store, gift shop, laundromat, restaurant, and hardware store for decades. It was vacant for several years and the family has spent the last few years bringing life back to the building. We were all born and raised in Van Buren County and have never left cause we love our little town and the beauty that surrounds us. Dad (Don) and Melodie have served as county commissioners, Mother (Shirley) was president of the Van Buren-Spencer Chamber of Commerce for years and serves on the VB Election Commission, Sister (Becky) is Director of Transportation for Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency, and brother (Ron) operates the General Store, Outfitters, and Snack Bar inside Fall Creek Falls State Park, and also has Outfitters shop in Rock Island. Our roots run deep in our community!

Great place to stay!
Great little place to stay it a quiet little town! The fact that Rock Island State Park and Fall Creek Falls State Park is only 20 minutes down the road makes it even better! My girlfriend had a great time. Will defentily be back!
Melodie’s was adorable and cozy!
Melodie’s place was perfect for a sister getaway. We loved the adorable decor and the overall space. We used the bridal area for getting ready, the sitting room with the big mirror for stretching and yoga, and enjoyed playing scrabble in the living room. The bed was nice and comfortable and a welcomed reprieve from rafting, hiking, etc. Melodie’s little touches like the provided beverages, snacks, and other amenities were greatly appreciated. We had a couple of issues that were quickly fixed and addressed by Melodie who was quick to respond to any message. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Thank you Melodie!
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such a wonderful detailed review! So happy you ladies enjoyed! My son said you were doing 🧘�♀️ in the bridal room when he came to work on shower (shower head got stopped up 🤦�🏻�♀️). We thought that was so cool! I am going to add a couple yoga mats now! Such a great idea in that big bright room!
Thank you for being so sweet
Cute and cozy
We enjoyed our night in this cute apt. Will be back again soon. Melody had everything from drinks and snacks to forgotten toiletries. Wonderful place!
Thank you kindly! Happy you enjoyed your stay 😊!
Melodie was such a gracious host. If going through Spencer again, I would definitely stay at her place!!! It was all that was promised...and so much more.
Thank you so much Dianna! Happy you enjoyed you stay!
Comfortable, adorable, private!
While we didn’t get to the property until later at night due to going to a concert at Cumberland Caverns, this was the PERFECT place to come back to! It was so homey and cute when we walked in with all of the nice personal touches. The bed was super comfortable and the movie selection in the room had something for everyone. The most touching part to me was the cute little notes and gift bags! We were so bummed when we got in and realized we didn’t stop to grab a drink before we came in the loft. Not to worry though! We were greeted by a mini fridge with drinks and cute little snacks as well as toiletries if we needed them. When we stayed in this area at a hotel the last time we came down, it was less than thrilling and only about $20 cheaper. We decided that we won’t choose anywhere but here in our future visits! Thank you so much for everything!
Thank you so very much for the wonderful words of kindness! We greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave such a detail review and the respect you showed our loft! We look forward to you staying with again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ste D. The bed was super comfortable, which was great after a long day of exploring! Melodie was wonderful and kept good communication. The little extras were very nice. It was very clean and decorated very cute. Thank you for an awesome stay!
We are happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you 😊
