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 queen bed with 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 enjoyed our visit to Kentucky, and our stay at the Cottage. This was the springboard for our trip to the Ark and the Creation Museum, which were also fabulous. The four star rating is for a few nitpicky-things that may be personal preference, but I could not hesitate to recommend this place in general. Keep up the good work!
It was a cozy little place. Helpful guest book, great to have a kitchen, laundry room and grill! Worked well for our large family.
My family spent the 1st week of August in the Cottage, where we were very close to the Creation Museum, which was the reason we chose to stay in Petersburg. We could easily go back to the house for lunch and back to museum in a short amount of time. The town is very charming, clean, and welcoming. There were 7 (5 adults, 2 teens) of us and we had enough space in the house to 'spread out' which is very important with teenagers. I would certainly stay there again or try out another one of Deborah's houses when we visit the museum again. There were 2 instances that we needed to contact the owner and both times yielded quick responses to our inquiries. Thank you for providing a home away from home. Many blessings.
The Cottage may not look like much on the outside, but from the moment you open the front door you will be captivated by all the beauty it holds. From the staircase to the crooked fireplace, this cottage has many quirky attributes to please the eye. There were more than enough comfortable beds to comfortably sleep our family of five. The appliances new and very well maintained. My kids were thrilled with the limited access to Netflicks as well. Conveniently located to the Ark and Creation Museum, this was a great place to stay. Highly Recommend.
Everything in The Cottage was so tidy and perfect! The beds were comfortable, the house was roomy for us 7 and the house itself was just exquisite to look at. It was a very peaceful stay to say the least. The town of Petersburg is such an excellent backdrop for such a rental home.
As we pulled up to the cottage I was nervous...it looked small. But when we opened the door, we were pleasantly surprised! It was spacious and adorable! We were so thrilled to stay in such a clean, charming little cottage. It was close to the Creation Museum & not too far for our adventure of Ark Encounter!! Our family of 5 and my Mother-in-law all had plenty of room and the kitchen was well supplied, so cooking meals there was easy. We will certainly recommend to friends and quite possibly use again ourselves!
Located 3 blocks from Ohio River access, 5 miles from Creation Museum.
