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!

Parker house is in a beautiful, quiet small town located near the Creation museum. We enjoyed our stay with plenty of room

House was charming, but dusty. Decor left a lot to be desired, neighborhood was dreadful.

Beautiful, Spacious Older Home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. Everything is nice and well kept.

There was 15 of us and it was plenty spacious for all.

The owner was easy to deal with and everything was as advertised.

Another shower would be nice, but since there are two toilets at least, we got by fine.

Would recommend it to any family looking for a great deal for the money!

Loved the experience! Very nice spacious home. Lovingly cared for, accurate listing, attentive host.

  • 5 of 5

As this was our first experience with VRBO we were unsure of the situation. Turned out amazingly easy and painless. Quick responses from our host. Very spacious home lots of room for the 4 couples with teens, 12 total. 5 bedrooms, large kitchen! Dining room with 3 room for up to 18 people at 3 tables! TVs, games, a nice selection of reading material. Modern kitchen and bathrooms, and the single full bath was not a problem to manage - lots of hot water. Ideal family reunion location with easy access to the Museum and Cincinnati airport. Quaint town, along the Ohio river. We all loved our two nights there, and tho it was freezing cold outside, heating was excellent throughout. The amazing HomeAway app even lets you split the bills! Our host was quick to confirm our reservation and everything was so easy to follow through the app. A truly excellent experience.

Great home with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with trim, doors, and high ceilings from a past time when craftsmanship was at its finest. We had a wonderful time visiting with family and there was room for all which was nice too. Only negative was that there was only one shower but at least there were two toilets. Easy to make this work for the weekend! We had such a nice time and really enjoyed your home! Thank you!

Nice big old house, big rooms, good beds.

  • 4 of 5

I found this house while looking for a place to stay for a trip to the Creation Museum. Originally, we were a group of 7 single friends, but ended up just being a group of five. The group stayed at the A B Parker House for 2 nights. They ate four meals at the house, so really appreciated the great kitchen. I think the only down side was having just one shower/tub! (We did know when we rented the house that there was only 1 tub/shower.)

Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the trip because of illness, so I asked a couple of people who did stay at the house for their reviews.

“Really liked the big rooms. The kitchen and dining room were great. The kitchen was very well equipped. Wished there were a second shower. We had to juggle schedules for everyone. Otherwise, we liked our stay.”

“Nice big old house, big rooms, good beds.

Only 1 bathroom in house.

Then 1 very small room with toilet only , no sink or anything in that very, very small room.”
