Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths (See Deborah's Guesthouses for more)

This cozy cottage was built in the 1800's and recently rehabbed. Quaint but eclectic, this home offers tin ceilings, an exposed brick chimney, original pine floors, art glass windows, and tons of natural light.

The first bedroom has a queen bed with a half bath attached.

The second bedroom is actually a sunroom with a queen-size canopy bed. It has its own sink area, as well as access to the outdoors. Three large skylights welcome the morning sunshine.

Children will love the loft, with its two tented twin beds. Also, there is a queen size sleeper-mattress on the floor for further sleeping, as well as video viewing.

Off the loft is a small screened-in porch that opens onto a 20' x 20' deck.

The kitchen and living room combine to make one large room. Food and fellowship are always a winning combination.

The laundry room is available for your convenience.

About Deborah

As a flight attendant, I stay in quality hotels almost every week... so cleanliness is very important to me. If you call and my phone is off, I'm probably on the airplane or in Germany--But I will call you back in 1-3 days--or email me, I'm often connected to the internet.

I moved to Petersburg in 1998 for the country setting, which was still only 25 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, and 13 miles from the Cincinnati airport (CVG).

Petersburg has only about 300 residents, not counting the cows at the one end of town. It's not unusual to hear the clop-clop-clop of horses' hooves as they ride down the street.

The first time I drove into town, the winding road reminded me of driving in the Italian Alps. Since I travel for a living, I was delighted to find my own 'Mayberry' with a touch of Italy.

Deborah purchased this cottage in 2003

What makes this cottage unique

The vacation home is located one block from the community center, which has a playground available to all, as well as basketball hoops and a ball diamond. There's a small park on the river's edge, as well as access to the river itself for kayaking, fishing, canoeing, etc. Our tiny post office is 2 blocks from the house, and if you like walking, it's exactly one mile around town.

6 miles away is the historic Dinsmore Homestead, and across from Dinsmore is Middle Creek Park (Boone County), which is great for hiking. About 13 miles away is Rabbit Hash, KY, which has a wonderful old general store. (Google any of these attractions for more info.)

Sweet little town

  • 5 of 5

The house was bigger than it appeared on the website. It was fully equipped with everything travelers could need. The beds were extra comfortable and inviting! I'd recommend this cottage to anyone!

This cute cottage was so unique and comfortable. Our children enjoyed all the unique hiding spots and we loved that it had everything you needed to feel at "home". Thank you for sharing it with us.

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay at The Cottage. Our destination was The Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, so it was a good location to stay. We loved being able to spread out into all the different rooms and then come together in the living room with comfy seating for us all. The kitchen was well stocked which was nice. My only complaint is that the mattresses weren't very comfortable and we didn't sleep well. Thank you for a nice visit.

Its a amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very inviting and homie. Has everything you need for your stay. Nice and clean and well kept. I would recommend this for a nice comfortable vacation rental. My large family had enough space to spread out. Quiet and relaxing area. The little cafe just around the corner has good food too.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming to stay with us! And you're right about the Cottage being "old" -- it was built in the 1800's, and so it has seen a lot of years :)) Some things get better with age, and houses are in that category for me. Maybe it's obvious... I love old houses! If anyone is looking for perfection, this may not be the house for you. But if you like Pinterest, natural light, art glass, old floors, and fun spaces, you'll definitely enjoy the Cottage!
