KENTUCKY GEM ~ ROOFTOP DECK + EASY WALK TO STADIUMS, THE BANKS, AND DOWNTOWN

Cincinnati Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This sleek urban dwelling is steeped in history, as is our charming and entirely walkable neighborhood. It dates to the 1860s when it was built to house the craftsmen who erected the architecturally significant Roebling Suspension Bridge, the prototype for The Brooklyn Bridge. It is thought that John Roebling himself designed this property and might have lived here.

My family purchased the building in 2007; top-to-bottom, wall-to-wall renovations resulted in '2008 River Cities Preservation' and '2008 Friends of Covington Beautification' awards. Its three story 'flying' staircase, scale, contemporary upgrades and location yield both character and comfort. Here, history and modernity are not to be confused with rigidity: put your feet up and bring your dog! There's a decidedly down-home feel with an up-town vibe.

Truly a handsome and affordable alternative for Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky business travellers -- or -- for regionally-inclined tourists or vacationing families. Ideally suited for meetings and entertaining, too.

Bounded to the north by the Ohio River, Cincinnati is a quick two blocks and a bridge (yes: that one!) away, as are sports stadiums and Queen City culture and cuisine. Fine and home-style dining, shopping and multiple entertainment options are also available just outside the door. Lexington and Louisville are each roughly (and Bluegrass scenic) 90 minutes away.

While most everything is within walking distance, two off-street parking spaces are provided. As well, a retro-fitted trolley traverses Covington and Newport KY, and Cincinnati. For full immersion in Kentucky's fabled horsiness, a livery across the street operates horse-drawn carriages most weekends and some week nights, using much the same routes.

Or, stay home and make good use of the roof deck with its panoramic views of the Cincinnati skyline and surrounding hillsides, the sunset-spilled den, and/or the jetted tub.

About The Owner

One sister uses this property as her home away from her Washington, DC home whenever she opts to unleash upon us yokels her cranky little terrier and two 'lively' Tween and Teen kids. Living just a few doors away from said property ... and the aforementioned terrier/niece/nephew trifecta: this aunt -- in need of respite! -- is more than happy to extend top-notch hospitality to non-relatives.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cincinnati

Listed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1971, Covington KY's Historic Licking Riverside Neighborhood has long been one of the premier historic districts in Greater Cincinnati, and was just recognized by The American Planning Association as 'A 2013 Great Place in America.' ( 1 of 10). And Cincinnati -- 'The Queen City' -- is cosmopolitan and cozy at the same time, and just a stone's throw away.

What makes this townhome unique

Location, History, Ambience, Comfort, View, and 'ThisClose' Proximity to Cincinnati, and Multiple Dining, Cultural + Entertainment, Big 'n Small Retail, a Terrific Riverfront Park, and Sporting Destinations.

Sports Peeps ~ Both stadiums are well-less than a mile + a 'festive' (Go Reds!) -- or -- a 'raucous' (Who Dey!) walk/trolley ride ($1 per person/runs every 15 minutes) away. Tailgating begins at our corner. Indians'/Browns' and Pirates'/Steelers' fans: Prepare for Good-Natured Ribbing en route!

Great place to stay
Very easy to hop on shuttle to Cincinnati or just a 10 minute walk across bridge
The owner of the house was very sweet and bought us coffee, bengals and chips and salsa. We will be staying there again next year.

I am a almost a year late in my review. We rented the property for our wedding. This is the perfect location if you are having your wedding in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky. The rooftop view is spectacular! I spent the night before with my Mom and some of my bridal party. The bridal party spent the morning getting dressed on the many floors and after the wedding it was the ideal crash pad. Lisa was wonderful, understanding and extremely accommodating to a bride who was under a lot of stress. We loved this home and you will too!

Charming and Close to Town

  • 5 of 5
The house in Covington was perfect for what we wanted to do ... explore Cincinnati without a car ! Lisa had thought of every detail to make our visit seamless and worry-free -- especially making sure we had ice cream at the end of the day! The home has been nicely redone and the three-story spiral staircase was charming albeit a challenge at the end of the day. We didn't have time for more than a quick visit to the rooftop deck but the view was amazing. Enjoyed the visit ... Oregon and Tennessee Friends

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely townhome. Lisa is wonderful to work with and goes out of her way to make your visit warm and inviting. She provides useful information about Cincinnati and the surrounding area. We really liked the third floor with the separate TV room, full bath, and bedroom for our teenage daughter and her friend, as well as the rooftop deck. The staircase is spectacular and is really the showpiece of this unique townhome.

Gorgeous and updated condo!

I took family members on a girls trip to the area as I am a resident but wanted a little vacation from my home. Lisa was great to work with. The house felt like a home and we really felt comfortable and able to "live" in it. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. Every appliance or kitchen gadget you would need was available. The house was historic but renovated so you felt the old world charm, but still had everything you would want in a new home. The location is perfect. Walking distance to many bars and restaurants as well as downtown cincinnati. We rode segways, had wonderful dinners and drank plenty of wine on the rooftop with an amazing city view.
