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.)

This property is quaint, cozy and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We came to enjoy the Creation Museum and Ark while spending some time with my folks. This Cottage was an easy drive to both places. It was comfortable for all of us with great common spaces and plenty of privacy as well. There was a thunderstorm while we were there that took out the power and water. Wanda, the property manager, was quick to work toward getting it resolved. She even found unique solutions when the main repairs were going to take a few hours. She was professional, kind and attentive to our needs. Overall, one of the best places we've stayed so far!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage enhanced our trip with grandsons to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter by making it memorable and enjoyable. It was great to have this home as our own little haven. We enjoyed individual privacy for sleeping and common spaces for meaningful interaction.

Cute house with lots of fun details

  • 4 of 5

This definitely beats a hotel! Able to cook meals at home, separate rooms. Quiet community. Clean and quaint. Lots of great tips in binder for a great stay. Not far really from anything. Nestled into valley. Were siding the house when we arrived, but were sensitive to allow us to enjoy the house without construction work. Would recommend a house library card, so guests could check out books and movies at library. Loved the Netflix though. Internet connection was great. Fire pit and grill got good use. Plenty of towels, nice beds. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful home. Would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Deborah's Cottage, and our trip to northern Kentucky in general. There's a sense of peace when we first walked in the home. The space inside the home is more spacious than what it appears outside. Deborah the owner, as well as Wanda the manager, were personally attentive to our needs. We had no lack during our stay.

We visited the Creation Museum and the Ark. The Cottage is close enough to the museum, that we had time to eat lunch at home, before returning to the museum in the afternoon. Petersburg Baptist Church is right next door. It's a little country church, but the Word of God is being preached there.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite of seven truly enjoyed the cottage. There was enough room for everyone to spread out and choose their favorite spots. The younger children loved the loft with the two "forts". My teen son loved the upper loft. I enjoyed the quiet reading nook. The town was quiet and friendly. Loved how close it was to The Creation museum and the Ark Encounter. Working with Deborah was amazing. She returned emails quickly and was always very friendly and helpful. The cottage exceeded our expectations and we are telling our church families about all Deborah's housing options. Planning to return to the area in 5years and want to try one of the other guesthouses.
