Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday studio in Kentucky Lake - 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 lived in Petersburg from 1998 to 2013. 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...

Memories at The Bank

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Bank! We are a family of 9 with children ranging from 3-18. We enjoyed how spacious and clean The Bank was! This was definitely more relaxing and memorable than a hotel. The location was perfect for our visit to the Creation Museum. We would definitely stay again!

Sojourners from Washington

  • 5 of 5

This was a cultural experience for us coming to a different part of the country and staying in a town with such interesting history. The bank was very nice and had (almost) everything I needed (a paring knife and chef knife would have been useful). With special dietary needs being able to have a fully stocked kitchen and avoid allergens at restaurants is paramount. The kids loved the vault and it was very clean and nicely presented. We found this thru Creation Museum website on vacation rentals. I think Debbie renovating these old buildings in this small town has probably had a significant positive effect on this community. She has done a beautiful job.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming to stay -- all the way from Washington state! I'm glad you enjoyed your "cultural experience" in our tiny Kentucky town. It must be so different from Washington...but the natives are very friendly ;-)) Thanks also for letting me know about the knives -- I thought I had a knife set in each unit, but I guess I missed one! We already have a set and will put it in the Bank kitchen ASAP. Thanks again, and we hope to have you back on your next visit to Kentucky! Deborah

The Bank!!!

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous well kept property in rural town. Highly recommend this property, particularly if visiting the creation museum. Walk around town and talk to the friendly locals to find out some of the towns fascinating history. 2 things to keep in mind... as mentioned by others you need to cross through the main bedroom to access the toilet and kitchen area. Also the local store is well stocked but small so worth shopping in a larger town prior to arrival.
