This place has the potential to be awesome, it just isn't there yet. It looks great, but it needs to have more specialty nostalgia items.

We used to come here to look at the unusual musical instruments. But they no longer have these. The store now just carries the usual tourist trinkets.But you can often find someone performing on stage in the back room. So it's not a bad place to set a spell and listen.

Our family has stopped at Mellon's over the years. Maybe it's because we were there during the off season, but it seemed a little under stocked and disorganized. There wasn't as much neat stuff to look at anymore. I will give them the benefit of the doubt because my kids love the old fashioned candy and drink cases.

On our way back into Mountain View from a visit to Blanchard Springs Cavern and the accompanying recreational area we stopped in to Mellon's Country Store. It is a very typical gift shop in a touristy area, loaded with candy, souvenirs, toys, etc. The difference was the very congenial man who was in charge of things when we arrived. I... More

I am not much on hokie country shows and backwoods comedy. I come to the area primarily for fishing and fabulous nature. Mellon's is however a favorite stop of mine. All the old time candy and soda pop. Toys from days gone by. It istruely is a step back in time. Found items that remind me of Grandma. Felsnaptha soap... More

Stopped in here on a weekend trip and fell in love with the people and the place! Brought back so many memories of my youth and spending time with my grandparents in the country. The people that are there make you feel as welcome as can be and they are wonderful! This would be the only reason to come back... More

Don Mellon or Pappy as he calls himself is the head of this great little country store and will entertain you for quite awhile. They have various treats for eating and a small music store. Along with all this Don may just pick up his gourd fiddle and let loose and put on a performance or with his guitar. They... More

Relaxed and fun establishment. They offered us cake and ice cream and a chance to sit and listen to the locals play and sing.

What a flash to the past. Not only is this like a country store of old but there is a stage and free seating for shows featuring locals playing great mountain music and just having a good time. Great jellies, jams, novelties, drinks and more. Very very family friendly, but be prepared to be welcomed with a joke and made... More
