About Tara Bentley

Greetings! I'm the mother of two girls, both homeschool graduates. The Creation Museum has played a big part in our lives over the years and our oldest daughter even got married there in 2013! We enjoy hosting families as they come together from different parts of the country to visit the museum and spend time together. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Petersburg a cherished memory for your own family!

Great Location. Clean. Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A.B.Parker is located in a quiet neighborhood, in a small town. It was easy to find, and an easy drive to the Creation Museum. The house is clean and comfortable, and has plenty of parking. It was far more relaxing than staying in a hotel, and the kids were able to play outside for a while before it got dark. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house :) . I will definitely recommend A.B. Parker to anybody traveling to the area.

Going back in time!

  • 4 of 5

We took our church youth group to the Creation Museum and rented this home for our accommodation on March 16 and 17 since the museum pass is good for 2 days.

This charming century home has history and character in beautiful, peaceful Petersburg, Kentucky. It has fulfilled our dream of going back in time a reality! The home was roomy enough to gather our group of 14 in the living room for discussions and games, and to all eat together in the large dining room. However, keep in mind that at best the futons only sleep two small children, not two teens or adults The town was very quaint and we loved that small town feeling. The house is only a few steps away to the community park and library. However, a suggestion would be to stock up on food before you arrive, as it is about a 25 minute drive to Lawrenceburg where there is a decent-sized food store (Kroger). One disappointment was that the internet was not working while we were there. This caused some problems in the planning of our next days. We would like to recommend this house and vacation to many of our other sister churches. It is definitely a better option than renting many small hotels rooms.

A.B. Parker house was the perfect setting for our family weekend gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the historic charm and warmth of the A B Parker house property. Spacious, comfortable, cozy, & clean, the house met and exceeded our needs and expectations. The kitchen was roomy and well equipped to support our gathering of 11 people. With the nearby backdrop of the Ohio River, and community playground, we enjoyed the warmth of the rustic community surroundings as well. The bedrooms were comfortable and quaint. Overall, the property provided the perfect setting for our family gathering. Thanks to Tara and her team for the great accommodations! Sincerely, David B.

Weekend getaway for 5 families

  • 5 of 5

We had several families stay in the house and two others shared comments which I've included below.

We really enjoyed our time at this location as well as at the Creation Museum which is very close. The dining room allow the entire crew (14 of us) to break bread together rather then eating in shifts. The Kitchen was well appointed and required us to bring no additional items. There is a single shower but we did not run out of hot water even though it was operational for a continuous bit of time.

Very clean and cozy.

"The house was the perfect size for our group, my bed was very cozy and comfortable, and my room was really quiet considering it was on the main floor."

"Really enjoyed our stay; the house was clean, sturdy and well furnished with the kitchen, laundry and spacious bedrooms. Nice hot water and shower head. Also enjoyed reading on the balcony and was impressed with the taste of the tap water. Thank you for having us and I am happy to refer to others."
