THE VICTORIAN -- OLD WORLD CHARM OVERLOOKING THE OHIO RIVER

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Kentucky - The Victorian

Main floor apartment, 2 BR, 2 Ba, sleeps 9. Upstairs apartment, 2BR, 1 Bath

This graceful Queen Anne-style home sits directly on the Ohio River. The curving front porch invites you to 'sit a spell' and enjoy the river breezes. The back deck overlooks the river directly below, and stunning sunsets over the water melt your worries away.

LARGER PHOTOS: Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Downstairs: The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, and an attached bath.

The second bedroom sleeps 5 in bunk beds and a futon.

Another full bath is down the hall.

The dining room is large, as is the kitchen overlooking the back deck and the Ohio River. There is a full size futon in the dining room...could be used as a bedroom if the eat-in kitchen is used for dining.

The laundry room is off the kitchen, and includes an iron and ironing board. Bring your own liquid detergent if you want to get some laundry taken care of during your stay.

Upstairs: Two bedrooms, one full bath, large eat-in kitchen, plus 3-season room overlooking the river.

Bedroom 1 has a queen bed, plus a wicker couch. Off this bedroom is the laundry room closet, plus a queen mattress on the floor.

Bedroom 2 has two daybeds with trundle-type beds underneath, plus a couch. This room doubles as the living room.

Both bedrooms have TVs plus DVD players.

Check-in: 4 pm EST. Check-out: 11 am EST (lock box)

Items provided in each apartment: Sheets, wash cloths and towels, toilet tissue, some paper towels, 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 filters, foil and cling wrap, baggies, Kleenex, drinking water (The Victorian uses a well--perfectly fine for cooking and laundry and even drinking, but some prefer bottled)

While I was living in The Cottage (VRBO.com/384587) I noticed The Victorian three blocks away was in foreclosure. I love old houses! After seeing the monumental overhaul it needed, saying a few prayers, and talking to family and friends, I bought it...and was instantly overwhelmed!

First project: Put in a huge deck in back--the beautiful views kept me inspired during the long rehab. And now it's all finished and worth every bit of the TLC it required. Hopefully it blesses my guests as well!

My family of 19 stayed very comfortably. We had a great time! The furnishings were more than adequate. The closed in balcony porch was wonderful! The kitchen supplies are well stocked, pans, cookware plates,. A pitcher would be nice. Everything else was great!

Great location for multiple families

The house was clean, well-equipped and had a fabulous location on the Ohio River. Beds were plenty and comfortable. Would have loved to have a room on the first floor that had more of a family room feel with comfy couches and chairs as we did not have a room where we could all go to relax. The dining room chairs were nice but got very hard after sitting in them for several hours. Would return however.

Owner's Response: That's a good idea -- another guest mentioned this, and I will try to make the dining room into more of a comfy gathering spot in the next few weeks...

Close to Creation Museum and beautiful view of river

We loved the location of the home on the river in a quiet country neighborhood. We will have to come back in warmer weather when we can take advantage of the nice deck out back with the beautiful view of the river. Deborah does such a nice job of choosing antique pieces that compliment the home and provide a wonderful quaint atmosphere. And everything we could possibly want was there, including all kinds of kitchen utensils, pans, appliances, a laundry room, television with cable, plenty of towels, pillows and blankets and more. We were very happy with grocery store she suggested that is just a short distance away. Deborah's cottages are always kept up very well and she responds quickly to any concern, so we will be returning each time we visit the Creation Museum.

Wonderful Home-away-from-Home!!!!

We were a family of 10 staying here while we visited the Creation Museum. It was a wonderful place! We never want to stay in a hotel again! We made all our dinners and breakfasts here and lunches to go. I love herbs and knew it was the place God meant for us to stay when our walk up to the victorian was landscaped with herbs and strawberries and even a book in our bedroom on landscaping with herbs! Thank you so much Deborah for all of the sweet touches that you put into your places to make our stays so special! It was great to come "home" every evening to!! The view of the river in the back is beautiful! The children loved seeing the barges go by. Deborah's homes are wonderful homes to stay at when in the area!! Would highly recommend this place!

Amazing! Perfect for our family!

The Victorian was beautiful. We arrived with snow on the ground and warmth inside the home away from home. It is located in a small town with A LOT of history. The view of the river off the back deck was great! Our kids enjoyed watching the barges passing by. My husband enjoyed cooking outside on the grill and I enjoyed be able to have a full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 bathrooms and bedrooms. The special touch, for me, was the piano in the main room and I also loved all the antiques throughout the house. We will most definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kentucky!
