About Pamala Smith

I am originally from a small town in Kansas called Colwich. I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1988. After about 10 years of living 10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati. I moved to Lebanon, Ohio where I discovered a true love of the small town life once again. I discovered a new love for the History and Historic attributes of Lebanon. I created Simplify to allow guest to share in Lebanon cuteness.

In my spare time I am a teacher and a decorator. I love being creative and both these loves allow that. I also enjoy the outdoors. Boating, camping, hiking, exploring, exercising and good health.

Pamala Smith purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Pamala Smith chose Ohio

I quickly fell in love with the small town life here. Historical buildings, the feel of community at every corner, quant places to shop and eat at everywhere. I wanted to share it with the world. Henceforth came my idea to create Simplify Rental. A place where families can come together for a short or long stay with the convenience of home while exploring the wonderful town of Lebanon, Ohio.

What makes this apartment unique

Simplify was designed with the comfort and warmth or home in mind. The entire floor was newly renovated in 2012 from the flooring to the lighting. Creating a cozy, fun, warm, private and safe environment for my guests was my goal. Families, loved ones, generations, or a significant other can all find something they enjoy at Simplify. My expectations of this place is for it to bring joy to you as you stay and discover my wonderful little town in the process.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Helpful votes:0/0

7 of us had the opportunity to stay here for a fun girls night out. As soon as we walked upstairs we knew we made the right decision. So cozy, but lots of room to have fun. The decorating was so cute! The beds were very comfortable too.....even the couch! Convenient for walking to the shops and restaurants. We are already making plans for another girls night out!

Great Fall family weekend

  • 4 of 5

Property was prime location for a weekend at the Ohio Renaissance Festival! We took our 2 kids to the Ren Fest, stayed the night in Lebanon, and then went apple picking the next day. What a great Fall Family weekend! The location worked out perfect for us.

The owner was very responsive and accommodating. She even had games and movies for the kiddos! Super happy and enjoyed the whole experience!

The only remotely negative thing I can say is the owner asked we not cook bacon due to the lingering smell. Being a bacon lover, this took my review from a 4 star to a 5 star review. Yes, a little nit picky, but I really missed my bacon in the morning.

Many thanks!

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

3 of us spent 3 days in the Lebanon apartment and it couldn't have been better. Super clean and well designed. Loved the town as well! Pamela was very communicative and it was easy to get in even though our schedule was a bit erratic and we didn't know when we were going to arrive. If you're going to be in the area, it's a great option.

Great spot in a historic downtown

  • 5 of 5

The third floor walkup in the historic downtown was very comfortable, had all the kitchen things we needed, good wifi, and ample lounging space. We were a family of six (teens and parents), so had to share the 1 1/2 bathrooms, but we knew that before we arrived. We shopped and ate in quaint Lebanon spots, visited Cincinnati museums, and also attended the tennis tournament down the road with ease. Thanks to Pamala for making a great space available!

Simplify is just 8 miles form Paramount Kings Island and The Beach water Park. Both are great attractions. Lebanon, Ohio is a quant little town with lots of little shops, pubs and cafes. All are walking distance from Simplify.

Lebanon is an Historic town with lots of great history including the famous Golden Lamb where Woody Harrison the actor once worked as a teenager and the movie 'Harper Valley PTA' movie took place at Berry middle school right here in town as well as 'The Christmas Spirit' movie from Hallmark was shot right on our little corner of Mulberry and Mechanic.

Lots of antique shopping, a large flee market and a 50 miles walking track. During your stay here you can travel just 40 minutes North to Dayton, Ohio or 40 minutes South to Cincinnati, Ohio. Both cities have much to offer.

Lebanon, Ohio has some of the best festivals around. Just to name a few is The Country Music Festival, The Blues festival, The Apple festival and the Carriage Parade. All of these festivals can be viewed from inside the windows of Simplify. The perfect location warm or cold to enjoy the festivals and them walk up to your home away from home to put your feet up for a bit only to rejoin them again as much as you wish. Food music and lots of shopping at your finger tips.

My favorite thing about Lebanon is all the wonderful places to stop and grab a bite to eat, a coffee, a smoothie or an ice cream. We even have a chocolate factory right here in town.

Our town is always improving as we just welcomes a wonderful family café called Royce which is a hop skip and a jump from Simplify. Then of course how could I forget 'The Jam and Jelly Lady' who is conveniently located in the same building as Simplify. You can't visit Simplify without popping into her colorful and cheery shop.

'The Village Wine cellar' is a great place to pop in for a wine or drink, evening music and in the near future for an Italian meal. A large outdoor patio was just created this year and the best news is they are our neighbors.

Lebanon, Ohio is a Mom and Pops kind of place with lots to explore and do. A map with many location will be conveniently in place for you to look at during your stay at Simplify to help you on your way to a wonderful time.
