Overview

About the property

$225-$250 for lower level, $380-$405 for 2 levels. (See Deborah's Guesthouses)

This restored general store is a luxurious oasis. The sky-high ceiling, bronze detailing and brand new kitchen, dining, and living space is sure to help you relax and rejuvenate!

With 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, this home is perfect for 6-8 adults plus children, with its 2000 square foot downstairs apartment.

(Add the Upstairs Apartment, and comfortably fit 22-23 guests in 6 bedrooms with 4 full baths.)

It's like renting two whole houses, with an adjoining (lockable) door at the base of the stairs! Perfect for groups who want to share, but still have privacy.

(Upstairs remains unoccupied and locked, unless also rented by the downstairs guests.)

Rate: $225 per night (main floor) ($250 Memorial weekend to Labor Day) Sleeps 10-11

Rent the whole building for $380/night ($405/night during high season) Sleeps 22-23. *Simply book the downstairs online, and include a note that you want the Upstairs as well. Or request a quote...)

Take a step into this once thriving General Store and be amazed by the original elevator that once brought goods from the basement storage up to the store level. Though not functioning anymore, this historic architectural element has been frozen in time during the latest remodel.

About Deborah

Originally from the St. Louis area, I lived in Petersburg from 1998 to 2013. The first time I drove into town looking for a home to buy, the 'Old Petersburg Operahouse' was for sale. Having majored in music many years ago, the old building sent out a siren call for me to buy it! I've been buying and rehabbing in town ever since. In 2011 I opened The Cottage for vacationers. It was a very slow start, and I wondered if it had been the right decision. But soon the Creation Museum guests started arriving--I love my guests! What a joy to interact with these Christian families (many with lots of children :), who are kind and thoughtful...and take care of my home! It was obvious right away that a vacation home offers a much-needed alternative to hotel rooms...most of which cannot accommodate the larger families. Also, the ability to cook your own meals instead of eating out can save money. (And doing a little laundry during vacation can rescue you from a mountain of clothes when you get home...;-) I hope you enjoy the adventure of staying in this historic general store...

Beautiful home and great place for a group to stay! The house was clean and in great condition!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the open concept home for our large group. The rooms and bathrooms were perfect. We appreciated the nice, soft blankets. The kitchen was great. Deborah was very helpful with answering questions up to our visit! We will definitely use Deborah's guesthouse next time we come to see the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful!!! Super clean, very well stocked with plenty of towels, washcloths, toilet tissue, etc. Plenty of dishes, silverware, cooking pots and pans, etc. We could not have asked for any better. Perfect location. We came with a group from our church, 17 of us, and we had plenty of room and were about 10 mins from the Creation Museum and 45 mins from the Ark Encounter. Thanks to the owner for allowing your property for rental and for making our visit so special.

Immaculate rental!

  • 5 of 5

The General Store was everything the pictures promised. It was spotless and provided everything you could want. Deborah was very prompt on responding with all my questions that I had prior to renting and then prior to our stay. We were there for our annual cousins/gals getaway. It is an excellent location for visiting the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. I highly recommend the General Store - I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Best Vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the General Store was voted by all 4 generations present "BEST VACATION EVER"! The property was even more beautiful & spacious than the pictures, and it was immaculately clean! It was the perfect headquarters for our Creation Museum/Ark Encounter adventure. Every family had the privacy of their own bedroom, and there was plenty room for all of us to share meals & relax together. We're already wanting to plan a return trip! Deborah was prompt with answers to every question I had in the planning, and everything was just as she had promised PLUS more! She's thought of everything, including plenty of extra towels, step stools & night lights in the bathrooms for the little people, a crock pot, griddle, and even spices for cooking meals. (We liked the Petersburg Pantry pizza , too!) We highly recommend this lovely and relaxing location for a family vacation of re-connecting. (And the Museum is only a few miles away!) We'll be enjoying our memories of this wonderful trip for decades!

Thank you, Deborah (and Wanda!)

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented both floors and with 17 children under of the age of 10 we never felt crowded. The

facility was spotless, and had everything we needed. A gentleman brought fire wood every night and vowed to furnish us with a truck load if needed and no extra cost. Everything was just perfect, would gladly recommend this rental to anyone. Thank you Debra and Wanda
