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.

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...

DAYNA

  • 5 out of 5
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!

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at the Bank. The kids (three of the four) loved sleeping in the vault, and having the kitchen to make breakfast helped cut down on eating out expenses. We thought the beds were comfy and were pleasantly surprised that there was wi-fi (my wife and I didn't really care, but the kids were thrilled). The TV with Netflix subscription was a nice perk, too.

I'd recommend bringing your own griddle if you want to make pancake (we made do with a saute pan), but other than that everything was there that we needed.

OUR STAY AT THE BANK.

We took our grand kids to the Creation Museum and stayed at the Bank. They loved sleeping in the vault. It was very clean and well kept. Will definitely recommend it!

PERFECT "HOME AWAY FROM HOME"

Perfect "Home away from home"
  • 5 out of 5
"The Bank" was very clean and well-maintained. We found it to be just as the pictures described, with no unpleasant surprises. It was so nice to have a kitchen and laundry, a perfect "home away from home" while we visited the Creation Museum.

MINI-VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at the bank over Memorial Day weekend. I can't say enough good things about Deborah and the home. We felt instantly at home, the pictures do not even come close. It has all the small touches of home. We met Otto at the small grocery store down the road, who was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The owner has everything laid out, organized, and ready for guests. My grand-daughter especially liked sleeping in the bunk beds in the vault. The proximity to the Creation Museum cannot be beat! After a long day wandering the grounds and museum it was a welcome respite from the heat and crowds. If you are looking for a top-notch home rental experience, this is the place. Small, rural, and very family-friendly. We have yet to stop talking to our family and friends about our stay. Thank you again Deborah for sharing your incredible home with us.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 5 (with 2 teens) enjoyed staying here while visiting the Creation Museum. It was so nice to come back to our own space and relax in the evening. We were able to enjoy breakfast and supper in the well supplied kitchen. Each evening our family walked around the small town. We savored the quiet evenings together and experienced the view of the Ohio River. The Bank was easy to find and located only a few minutes from the museum. We found everything inside to be as described. Our children enjoyed sleeping in the vault, but the teens moved to the living room the second night because they thought the bunk bed mattresses were not comfortable. My husband and I slept comfortably on our bed. We did not realize until we arrived that while our bedroom does have a door (two in fact), it's not really private. This room serves as the hallway between the front living area, including the vault, and the back part of the bank, including the bathroom. This wasn't a problem for us, but if you're bringing anyone that likes an undisturbed night of sleep, it probably wouldn't be your best choice. There is a patio with two tables and a grill outside. We did not use them on this visit, but they did look well maintained. We have already started recommending this place to all our friends.
