This cozy cottage was built in the 1800's and recently rehabbed. Quaint but eclectic, this home offers tin ceilings, an exposed brick chimney, original pine floors, art glass windows, and tons of natural light.
The first bedroom has a half bath attached.
The second bedroom is actually a sunroom with a queen-size canopy bed. It has its own sink area, as well as access to the outdoors. Three large skylights welcome the morning sunshine.
Children will love the loft, with its two tented twin beds. Also, there is a queen size sleeper-mattress on the floor for further sleeping, as well as video viewing.
Off the loft is a small screened-in porch that opens onto a 20' x 20' deck.
The kitchen and living room combine to make one large room. Food and fellowship are always a winning combination.
The laundry room is available for your convenience.
As a flight attendant, I stay in quality hotels almost every week... so cleanliness is very important to me. If you call and my phone is off, I'm probably on the airplane or in Germany--But I will call you back in 1-3 days--or email me, I'm often connected to the internet.
I moved to Petersburg in 1998 for the country setting, which was still only 25 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, and 13 miles from the Cincinnati airport (CVG).
Petersburg has only about 300 residents, not counting the cows at the one end of town. It's not unusual to hear the clop-clop-clop of horses' hooves as they ride down the street.
The first time I drove into town, the winding road reminded me of driving in the Italian Alps. Since I travel for a living, I was delighted to find my own 'Mayberry' with a touch of Italy.
Deborah purchased this cottage in 2003
The vacation home is located one block from the community center, which has a playground available to all, as well as basketball hoops and a ball diamond. There's a small park on the river's edge, as well as access to the river itself for kayaking, fishing, canoeing, etc. Our tiny post office is 2 blocks from the house, and if you like walking, it's exactly one mile around town.
6 miles away is the historic Dinsmore Homestead, and across from Dinsmore is Middle Creek Park (Boone County), which is great for hiking. About 13 miles away is Rabbit Hash, KY, which has a wonderful old general store. (Google any of these attractions for more info.)
We are from Florida and met family from Indiana to spend the weekend tubing at PNS for the holiday weekend. The stay at the cottage was perfect. It gave us a comfortable place to stay and fix meals in a quaint little neighborhood , but close enough to the slopes making travel time wonderful. We couldn't ask for more--a great place to warm up and unwind...spend quality time with family. We were close yet each had ample space to not feel smothered. Thanks for a great stay. With luck, we'll be back next year. Kim and Walt, Cape Coral, Florida
We were looking for a nice, affordable place to stay while visiting the Creation Museum, and we discovered that the Cottage was all that and more. The kids enjoyed exploring the nooks and crannies and sleeping in their own little spaces, the adults enjoyed the comfortable seating in the dining area and sitting room as well as the full kitchen. We all enjoyed the proximity to the Ohio river, to the Creation Museum, and the peacefulness of the community. We'd definitely stay here again!
Parents, teenagers and grandparents came together for a sight-seeing trip to the Creation Museum and the city of Cincinnati. The house was just as it was portrayed in the video. My teenagers LOVED the loft area with the little screened porch and walk-out roof. (the adults did, too). The atmosphere was warm, friendly and welcoming. We found it super clean and stocked with plenty of dish ware, utensils, appliances, etc. for our visit. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of space. Though we had a hiccup with the water, we were attended to very quickly (especially for a Sunday morning) and promptly relocated to another (actually larger) property for our final night in town with as smooth a transition as possible. So, big kudos to the management, maintenance and cleaning team! We will happily return to stay in this fabulous little house in the future.
This house was perfect for our vacation. We had nine people -- five adults and four children -- and the kitchen/family room area was big enough for all of us. Everyone had their own private space too. The house was very clean and comfortable and in a good location for our purpose (to visit the Creation Museum which is less than 10 minutes away). My grandchildren loved the upstairs space with curtained beds and a TV just for them. We were pleased with the accommodations and enjoyed our time there very much.
This was a great cottage recommended by friends of ours. We loved the fact that we were able to stay in a quiet town just minutes away from the Creation Museum. We would stay there again if the opportunity arises.
A really neat lodging spot. The Cottage is located in Petersburg, a small town along the Ohio River. Makes for a peaceful stay. The neighborhood is quiet. The house itself is spacious and a great place to rest after a day of Cincinnati area activities. Perfect location for Creation Museum visitors. My interactions with the owner were stellar. Deborah is very accessible, considerate, and a valuable resource in planning a trip.
