Overview

Lawrenceburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10), Wi-Fi

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.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Deborah

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.)

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful house. The minute we walked in the door and see the hard wood floors and stained glass windows, we fell in love. There was more than enough room for our five and enough little rooms and nooks that our kids could get a little alone time when needed. We were traveling to visit the Creation Museum...which is just a few minutes down the road. The only thing that you need to know is that the road going into the town is VERY curvy and there is a really tight hairpin turn with no shoulders on the side of the road and some big trucks that travel it. The proximity to the Cincinnati area of Ohio and also Indiana is great as well. There is also a nice town park just across the street. The kitchen was just the right size, and had a lot of the dishes that you need if you like to make your own meals when traveling. We are looking forward to coming back to the Cottage in a few years after the Ark Encounter is completed.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been planning visit to the Creation Science Museum for some time. It was great to find this house on their website. We are from Michigan and met our daughter and her family (they are from Buffalo, NY) at this lovely home. We had plenty of room and our grand-kids just loved the loft area! It was so much better then staying at a hotel and less expensive. Staying here gave us the chance to really visit with our family and the kids could play without being hushed up for fear of disturbing someone. It was great! We will be staying at one of Deborah's homes on future trips. Thanks so much!!

AWESOME PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the Cottage on a link of the Creation Museum website. We would have had to get 2 hotel rooms for out family of 6, but this was less expensive, so we gave it a try. WOW! What a great place! Lots of room for all, comforts of home, with a lot of thoughtful amenities. My husband and I came with our 9 and 13 year old, and my parents. There were so many beds to choose from, it was like an adventure! My 9 year old son didn't want to leave! We are time-share owners and have been in many condos. This surpassed them all by far!! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area!! Thank you!!

Perfect North Slopes made really perfect with great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

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
