Overview

About the property

$195-$250 for lower level, $350-$369 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: $195 per night (main floor) ($250 Memorial weekend to Labor Day) Sleeps 10-11

Rent the whole building for $350/night ($369/night during high season) (Upstairs AND Downstairs $350-$369/night, 4000 sq. ft. 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...

The perfect place for a spring break getaway!

  • 5 of 5

For our spring break adventure, there were five adults and four kids, three generations of family! The general store was spacious enough for all of us; we loved that we could all sit at the big table for meals and games. The house has unique and charming details, yet is updated with lovely features, such as both bathrooms and the kitchen. The kids were happy to go outside for scooter rides and walks to the nearby park and Ohio River. It was great to be so close to the Creation Museum, where we spent our first day, and to the Ark Encounter, where we spent our second day. I would love to return to Petersburg in the future!

Superb!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire building for three nights. It was way more space than we really needed. However we were glad we did. Everyone had their own space to relax and enjoy. This is by far best place I have rented. Soooo much better than a hotel. Deborah has created a wonderful place to stay. Definitely a home away from home. Wanda the property manages takes excellent care of everything. Very clean, very quiet and close to many great attractions. Ark Encounter and Creation Museum should be on a must see list. Will rent again!!

fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot and this is by far the best property I have ever rented. There were 5 of us and we rented both floors so everyone had plenty of privacy and relaxation. For sure a gem on the home away site. We went to Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Highly recommend both. Deborah's general store is beautifully renovated. Plan on another trip this fall and hope to rent again. Deborah is quick to respond and Wanda her property manager is exceptional.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at The General Store. For a large family, this was hands down the most ideal, comfortable, and clean lodging! We are seriously considering a return stay just to rent out the entire building! Thank you for such a memorable vacation!

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the General Store this past week, as we visited the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans. There is plenty of seating in the living room and at the kitchen table. We needed to do some laundry while there, so we appreciated the spacious laundry room. Bring your own detergent, though. Our kids thought the house was a mansion. They loved playing hide and seek throughout the downstairs. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable and beautiful place to stay while in Petersburg.
