This spacious 115 year old home located in the historic district of Northern Kentucky, Riverfront. It served as the parsonage for the Calvary Methodist Episcopal Church until 2001. Because we are only the 3rd owners of this lovely home, it has retained all its historic charm including original stain glass windows, but refurbished with all the innovated design for today's lifestyle!

Stroll along the neighborhood streets past unique shops, restaurants and all the entertainment the mighty Ohio River has to offer. Enjoy boating; riverfront dining plus you are a bridge away from your favorite big league sports! You are also minutes away from the variety of cultural events, museums, and family friendly activities Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati area has to provide.

This home is completely furnished with all amenities for a comfortable residence including off street parking and a lovely backyard providing additional outdoor living. Its close proximity to the expressway and Greater Cincinnati International Airport, affords an exceptional opportunity for corporate transfers and rentals, or vacationing families.

Rent this house for a month or longer. It will feel like your own home the day you move in. You might never want to leave Berry Avenue.

About The Owner

Born, raised and married in the Greater Cincinnati area, we just celebrated our 37th anniversary in the tri-state. Our background and education includes design, architecture, building and renovation of homes to their original grandeur. When we found this gem we knew immediate this would be a home we could retire to but for now it is perfect for a visiting family, corporate relocation, or just a home away from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Kentucky

We chose this home because it offers quaint urban living and big city excitement all within walking distance of our marvelous riverfront. This home offers original wood trim and flooring, working pocket doors, 10' high ceilings, original fireplaces and a comfortable kitchen.

What makes this house unique

Completely furnished large rooms, 2 furnished bedrooms, den (can be used as a 3rd bedroom), 3rd floor open to all possibilities, new appliances, central air conditioning, gas heat, lovely front porch and additional outdoor living space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jane,

What a charming home you have. Everything worked out for our visit to Cincinnati and we loved staying on Berry Ave.

The home is everything that it was shown to be and the perfect location for splitting our time between our respective families located in both Ohio & Kentucky.

I fully expect that when we return to the area, you'll be first to hear from us regarding our accommodations.

Regards,
Jul 2014

Great location and comfortable home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our weekend in Bellevue. We were there for a reds game and the house is a reasonable walk to the shuttle stop which takes you to the stadium (we even had a 5 and 3 yr old able to walk it). There are good food option within walking distance too and awesome ice cream. The house is great! Comfortable beds, plenty of space for everyone and lots of character. The owners are very easy to work with and very helpful. We hope to be back next year!!

Great Location !!!!!

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location of this house....the neighborhood was your average family neighborhood....some houses not so great, others very nice and well kept. Bellevue has a very quaint, charming downtown area....even its own brewery thats family friendly. The convenience of location was wonderful...close to shopping, Newport Aquarium, major highways ...literally took minutes to get anywhere. The house has beautiful details and great space for large families. Having said this, there were some issues:

-Cleanliness - LOTS OF DUST...2 family members allergic to dust and had to either stay out of the house or on the 3rd floor...not good.

-Bathrooms had mildew that I had to clean up.

-Kitchen not equipped well for cooking for the 8-10 guests the house can accommodate.

When I did tell Jane about the issues she was very apologetic and willing to refund the 1 nite when we decided to leave a day early.

I would be willing to stay here again if I knew these things were resolved.

Owner's Response: We are very appreciative to receive constructive criticism. It is very important to us that all of our guests are happy and comfortable in our home. We have since changed cleaning crews and the house has enough dishes, silverware and glasses for up to 8 people. We have one SET of pots and pans and a few cooking dishes as well as storage containers. If someone wants to prepare special meals or has special requirements, we encourage your requests before your arrival and we will do what we can to accommodate you.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

I am not a city person at all, so when I got there I was a bit skeptical. However the neighborhood was quiet and nice. Families out walking their dogs. There was also a nice town within walking distance from the house. It was close to the Arc Encounter and The Creation Museum. The house was fantastic and clean. The owner was very available and attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend the stay.

Lots of character and charm

Wonderful time spent with my mom and 6 sisters. The AC in the loft remained a little warmer than comfortable, but beautiful home with wonderful accommodations.

Perfect for the Marathon

  • 5 of 5

This updated, historical home was perfect for our stay. I loved the beautiful hardwood and stained glass. We slept 5 very comfortably and enjoyed being a quick shuttle or Uber ride over to Cincinnati. The home was very clean and contained everything we needed to make small meals. The owner responded quickly to my questions and provided a book with useful information at the house. There is a grocery store close by and a neighborhood bar within walking distance (beware, smoking allowed). We enjoyed a baseball game, ran the Flying Pig Marathon and visited Eden Park. I would definitely recommend this home as an alternative to a hotel.
