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, a full-sized futon, 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.

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.

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!

Great for multiple families/close to Creation Museum!

Four families traveled to the area for a visit to the Creation Museum with ages ranging from 1 to 50. The location was perfect...about a 10 minute drive to the museum daily. We loved the setting on the river, what an awesome deck area! It was very cool to sit and see the tug boat and the barges go down the river (the kids really enjoyed this). The set up is great for multiple families. It allows you to have your own space and also have common areas where you can all gather together. Having the double kitchen is also a great feature. We had to move around furniture to make the common space downstairs work for all of us to be able to sit together and watch a movie, and we enjoyed the Smart TV and wi-fi internet, although we really didn't spend a lot of our time using either. Deborah's book with local info was very helpful and interesting. We walked around town a few times while we were there. Otto, the maintenance man, was quick to respond when we had a minor issue and we enjoyed chatting with him as we were getting ready to leave. The online payment option is a definite bonus. If we plan a trip to the Creation Museum again in the future, we will be checking to see if The Victorian is available and will recommend it to any of our friends heading to the area.

The Cottage was lovely & neat with extra touches. It was clean - I did find extra dirt in laundry room but it was cleaner than I could keep up with :) The listing photo was good
& being near the river with spacious window areas seemed even better than expected. The owner was so prompt in answering any questions. I highly recommend the place for family & friends! We enjoyed the neighborhood, the ball park & Creation Museum. Thanks so much!

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

  • Review Submitted: 09-Jan-2014

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.
