HISTORIC BANK LODGING NEAR CREATION MUSEUM

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday studio in Kentucky - The Bank

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...

5 Tellers in the Vault

  • 5 out 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 out 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!

Awesome stay

  • 5 out of 5
Just a real nice place in a small town with a very small general store. Not to far from the creation museum 5 miles or so!

Unique Stay

  • 4 out of 5
We recently stayed at the Bank. The kids (ages 11 and 8) LOVED staying in the vault(especially when a nasty thunderstorm moved in). There is even a small safe inside which we threw some loose change in so they thought somebody left money in the safe. It was close to the Creation museum and for a dinner trip to Indiana. I would stay again if in the area. Also, when it was storming it was nice to have free Netflix to keep us entertained.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming to stay at the Bank, it was our pleasure to have you!
What a wonderful and creative idea to throw loose change into the smaller vault, for the kids to find and delight in -- maybe other guests will try this, too :)

Loved it!!

  • 5 out of 5
My family (5 of us) stayed 4 nights at the bank. It was just as described on the website. It was so nice to have room for us to spread out, unlike when we stay in a hotel room. Having a kitchen was a big plus, as we saved on eating out expenses. Being able to do laundry was great, also, so that I didn't have so much to do when we got home. We took another reviewer's suggestion and took a griddle with us to cook pancakes and french toast--would definitely recommend taking one if you want to cook those kinds of breakfasts. Otherwise, the kitchen is stocked with everything you will need. Deborah was so great in answering questions I had prior to our trip, and even during our stay I contacted her. She always got right back to me and was so helpful in suggesting things to do, etc. The TV with Netflix was great--we spent quite a bit of time just relaxing at the bank and watching some movies. Having Wifi was convenient (my teenage boys especially thought so!). We walked to the Pantry one evening to get ice cream--only $1.00 per cone!! Also enjoyed walking to the river. Our main purpose for this trip was to visit the Creation museum and the bank was very close to that. I just can't say enough good things about this place! Would definitely recommend!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming to stay at the Bank -- I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Petersburg!
I can see I'm going to have to get a griddle for each guesthouse :)) Who knew? Hopefully in the next couple weeks...
And I agree that walking to the Pantry for ice cream is fun, and it's also convenient if you don't feel like cooking a meal or two.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you for your next vacation to Petersburg!

We loved our stay at the bank! Our family had stayed in a hotel for a few nights before making our way to Petersburg. It was so good to be able to spread out. There were plenty of comfortable beds for the 5 of us. It was quiet at night and we could catch up on sleep. Deborah has a collection of games, books, and puzzles that we enjoyed dipping into. I loved that there was a recycling receptacle just around the corner for all of our water bottles, etc. We made use of the laundry room to cut down on what I had to do when we got home. We also enjoyed a playing field around the corner where the kids could run around and play frisbee, etc. A great place to stay. The bank looks even better in person than in the pictures!
