Description

Petersburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths (See Deborah's Guesthouses for more)

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.

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.)

Cute home in a different era

  • 4 of 5

We rather enjoyed the home! We loved the décor and the original wood and furnishings was lovely! The layout worked out well for our party of 7. My mom did have to kill quite a few spiders, but I believe that helped with the old era charm. :-) Overall it was an awesome experience and we are thankful we had the opportunity to stay here. It's proximity to the Creation Museum was great! We did have to travel a bit further to get to the Ark Experience, and nice restaurants, but that was not at all a big deal. Just watch out for the curvy mountains on the way!!

Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

Deborah was so pleasant to work with and her Cottage was a refection of her sweet personality.The Cottage was beautiful. All ten of us fit very comfortably. The kitchen was stocked with all things necessary to make meals. The town was peaceful, and I loved the historic atmosphere of Petersburg.

Great place to stay to see the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage. It was very clean and spacious. It is 15 minutes from the Creation Museum and 45 minutes from the Ark Encounter. You need to bring your food to cook or plan to drive about 15 minutes to some restaurants in order to eat. Everything else was there for you, even Netflix and Wi-fi. Great time to kick back and relax with family and see the Ark Encounter.

Cute and spacious

  • 5 of 5

The house appear small upon arrival. However once inside, it is quite spacious and quaint. This house is comfortable and homey. The kitchen is well stocked with basic necessities. They provide plenty of older VHS tapes and a couple of tv/vcr equipped spaces to make everyone happy. The town was like stepping back in time and you are next door to the fire station. It was quiet and comfortable at night. It was perfect distance to the Creation Museum and the Ark which is why we were in the area. We would definitely stay again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an excellent time during our week-long stay at the Cottage. The house was extremely clean, well organized. As a family of four we didn't test the house to the full capacity, but there was plenty of room for us to spend time together and to have daily quiet time where we didn't disturb each other... the girls used the upper level nooks as their fortresses; my wife and I were able to hang out in the evenings without concern of disturbing the girls while they tried to sleep. While it seems small on the outside, there was plenty of room and we greatly enjoyed the house. We enjoyed walks around the neighborhood; found a tree swing at the bank of the Ohio River and took numerous walks along the banks of the Ohio River collecting rocks, finding shells and learning how to skip rocks. The house is extremely close to the Creation Museum and was a relatively easy drive to the Ark Encounter. We are convinced that when we come back, we will plan to stay at the Cottage!
