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.

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!

Beautiful Decor and Very Clean - LOVE THIS PLACE

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here for two nights in 2015 and my sister is thinking about going back to visit family. As I looked it up, I realized that I NEVER left a review. I feel terrible. From the moment we booked the place to the time we left the rental, it was amazing. You are right there in town, you cannot beat that! You have a very spacious two bedroom with two baths, fully stocked kitchen and beautiful decorated. I have rented via VRBO over hotels for 15 years now and if you choose this place, you will not be disappointed. And dealing with the owner was a pleasure. Sorry it took me this long to realize that I had not made my comment :(

Great location. Well appointed accomodations. Quiet. Fabulous Customer Service.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at Simplify (two years apart), it was just as clean and comfortable as the first time. It's in a great location, walking distance to breakfast and evening drinks with friends, as well as shopping the historical town. The view out the windows at Christmas time makes you think you're inside a snow globe village. We have always had good luck parking right out front. The owners think of everything, and are very responsive to requests. My husband travels often and always carries a mattress pad for uncomfortable beds. He never needed it at Simplify. The shower is hot with good pressure to relax after long days of walking. The wifi signal is strong and broadband handled our needs easily. Simplify is on the top floor, so it's very quiet. We'll stay here again and again.

We loved our 'Sisters Trip' to Lebanon! And we LOOOOOOVED our choice of Simplify!

  • 5 of 5

Lebanon has A LOT of quaint shops for those of us who love vintage, cottage, rustic, and antique pieces. Simplify was THE perfect place for us to stay. We got to enjoy quiet, quality time in the unit and we're very comfortable. Pam is super responsive and accommodating. We will be back!!!

Horse Drawn Carriage Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Property was very nice, clean, and comfortable. What we seen on the website was what we seen when we walked in. Pam was very helpful and advised where to park on all the closed streets in the area for the weekend. We had a wonderful time and the location of the apartment was perfect. It really was a home away from home.

Thanks Pam!!

Better than a hotel stay!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults & 2 kids) stayed at Simplfy for 2 nights at Thanksgiving while in town visiting family. The apartment was perfect for us and we were able to relax and cook some side dishes in preparation for our big dinner at a sister's house. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms were very functional. We felt right at home and it was so much better than staying at a hotel.

The only critique we would suggest is a floor lamp near the sofa so we could read easier at night while listening to music on the Pandora TV. We plan on making a return visit sometime in the near future.

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.
