Overview

Kentucky Lake Studio Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

This 100-year-old bank was left to ruin after a larger bank bought it out and closed it down a few years ago. Until 2012--the project began January 1st, and the first guests arrived December 27th, 2012.

The vault is now a bedroom, with a twin over full bunk bed. There's also a TV with video player (no TV reception), just in case you want to lock your kids in there for a while. (Kidding...the steel vault door is wired open :)

The main teller's area is now the living room with TV/DVD. Plus a couple tables if your group is larger and wants to eat meals in this spacious room. The living room has a full size futon, a twin day bed, and a twin trundle bed.

Off the living room is the former office area, which now has a queen size bed, a large reading chair with ottoman, and a nice-sized closet filled with extra linens, blankets, and some games and puzzles.

The kitchen is in the back of the bank--this was the employees' area. It comes complete with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster oven, pots and pans, dishes for 9, coffee maker, and a small dining area.

Off the kitchen is the laundry area, and that leads to the full bath, with tub/shower, towels and washcloths for 9, plus hairdryer.

Check-in: 4 pm EST. Check-out: 11 am EST (lock box with keys)

Items provided: Sheets and pillows and blankets, wash cloths and towels for nine, some paper towels, toilet tissue, hairdryer, pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, toaster, dish soap and detergent

Items to bring along: Soap and shampoo, liquid laundry detergent (no powder please, clogs up septic system :), extra paper towels, napkins, coffee and filters, foil and cling wrap, baggies, Kleenex, drinking water ?...The Bank is on a cistern, which is perfectly fine for cooking, laundry, and even drinking, but some prefer bottled.

About Deborah

Originally from the St. Louis area, I've lived in Petersburg since 1998. The first time I drove into town looking for a home to buy, the 'Old Petersburg Operahouse' was for sale. Having majored in music many years ago, the old building sent out a siren call for me to buy it! I've been buying and rehabbing in town ever since.

In 2011 I opened The Cottage for vacationers. It was a very slow start, and I wondered if it had been the right decision. But soon the Creation Museum guests started arriving--I love my guests! What a joy to interact with these Christian families (many with lots of children :), who are kind and intelligent...and take care of my home!

It was obvious right away that a vacation home offers a much-needed alternative to hotel rooms...most of which cannot accommodate the larger families. Also, the ability to cook your own meals instead of eating out can save money.

(And doing a little laundry during vacation can rescue you from a mountain of clothes when you get home...;-)

I hope you enjoy the adventure of staying in this historic bank building...

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We took several families on a "field trip" to the Creation museum and most stayed in "The Bank". My family has stayed here before as well and both times everything was great! Close to the museum, nice little town, neat renovation of an old bank and the kids all wanted to sleep "in the vault".

Family time!

  • 4 of 5
Our family enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Bank. The children enjoyed the novelty of sleeping in a vault. Everything was as advertised, and made our stay a pleasant one. We would come back to the Bank if we would visit the area again.

A One-Of-A-Kind place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastically unique place to stay!! We were an extended family group of 5 adults and 4 kids and were blown away with the fun atmosphere of the location. The "house" is very thoughtfully and beautifully decorated. We were so excited with how pretty the interior decor was. When we pulled up it seemed shockingly small but once we got inside it was just soooo darned cute and reminded us a little of Hermoine's purse - not to be judged on outward appearances! This has a million times more character than staying in a boring old hotel room. The kids bunked in the vault and enjoyed the novelty. The thing all should bear in mind is that the only access to the bathroom is THROUGH the main bedroom so if the primary couple are wanting TOTAL privacy they need to know that the other guests have to come through the bedroom to use the potty! As long as everyone understands that going in, though, it's well worth the inconvenience. The kids loved taking the short walk down to the river to look for stones and driftwood. The little details were thoughtfully taken care of, down to a very broad movie and book selection, booster chair for my toddler, nightlights, games and fun gadgets here and there (I'm probably easy to please but I was kinda tickled by the touch "buttons" for some of the lighting). Hubby and I thought it would make a FANTASTIC couples getaway location when visiting the Cincinnati area. It's just a beautifully set, cute rural area that's a treat on the eyes in and of itself.

What a unique and cozy place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This place was just as described; clean, neat, well decorated, very comfortable. Our family of six stayed here and we visited the Creation Museum and Cincinnati Zoo. This was the perfect location. My children are already asking when we can go back to the bank! The owner, housekeeper and property manager were all very helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend this for other families.

5 Tellers in the Vault

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five really enjoyed our stay in the bank. It's in a tiny town. Our main objective was the Creation Museum, which we got to visit 2 days. The gardens at the museum are so neat and the petting zoo might have been more pleasant if it hadn't been 92 degrees out. We were so hot walking around outside. The bank has air conditioning which kept us content during our stay. Our children liked posing for pictures as if they were being held up in the bank vault by the others. There is plenty of room to spread out and having a washer and dryer is convenient too. We all slept well. The steep hill down to the tiny town was so curvy, it kind of scared us the first trip. We drove back up to the shops and stores and restaurants up near the highway to search out an ice cream shop but no go.

Owner's Response: There's just nothing to cool you down on a hot Kentucky day like some old fashioned ice cream! Chuck's "The Store" is about 10 minutes away from town. He offers some great soft serve ice-cream and milkshakes! Sure wish we would have had it on the list of attractions for your visit, we will get it added for all future guests! Thank you so much for your stay and for your next visit… Ice cream! :)

What a wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 stayed at the Bank while visiting the Creation Museum. This is a wonderful place to stay. It is actually pretty spacious. Loved having a kitchen and a gas grill so that we could prepare our own food to save money and eat healthier. The kids had a blast staying in the vault and playing with "Bank Bug". We definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area. It is also refreshing to see that the owner takes every comment and suggestion seriously. This was so much better than staying at a hotel and very affordable!
