Beautifully restored, guest home in Petersburg, Kentucky overlooking the majestic Ohio River. Built in the 1850's this was once the home of riverboat captain Perry McNeely. The house is conveniently located just 10 minutes from the Creation Museum and only 30 miles from Cincinnati, Ohio. Our home is ideal for extended families that want to spend their vacation time together. Relax and enjoy each other's company!
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 was 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!

This spacious and historic home is the perfect resting spot for your family's visit to the Creation Museum.
This quaint, historic house was once the home to Captain Perry McNeely and his family. The Captain and his wife had 12 children and all four boys went on to be Captains as well. Their home faces the beautiful Ohio River and you can imagine wifey and the children watching the river for Captain to return home. You family will love spending time together in this home. With open space flowing between the living room, dining room, and nook space… you'll have room to gather together for meals, games and late night conversations. The loft room is perfect for children to play together!
I went with 13 members of our family including 8 grandchildren and we all loved the house, even the grandchildren commented how much they loved it and wished they lived there. Loved the old charm of the floors, doors and architecture with the modern kitchen. Had a great yard for the kids to play in, except for the mosquitos they would have enjoyed it more. There was plenty of room for all of us. The location was nice with the river across the road from us. We were able to walk down there and let the kids learn to skip rocks. They loved going down there. It was fun knowing that a different state, Indiana, was on the other side of the river bank. There was a large tree in the space across the street that had a hollowed space in it that the kids found a message in a bottle left by previous renters. That was a fun moment for them. The house is close to the creation museum, which is why we were there. The only thing was the drive to the house from the museum was very curvy and hilly in spots making the passengers a little nervous, especially with me driving, and with large dump trucks driving fast through there made it a little dangerous so use caution driving there. We spent most of our days at the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter so the kids were disappointed we didn't spend one whole day at the house. It was a fun memory making trip for all of us. One that we will remember for a lifetime. I would highly recommend this house and if we ever go back we would love to stay there again
We loved staying at the captain's quarters. There was plenty of room for our crowd of 5 adults and 9 kids.
There were 7 of us staying at your property and we enjoyed the house very much. we only stayed two nights but it was. Very comfortable.
My family and I enjoyed staying at Captain's Quarters. It is a lovely spacious old home in a quiet setting. The mattresses are good and the house is very well stocked -all you need to bring is your luggage. It is air conditioned on the main floor and there is a fan upstairs. We were only able to use the main floor as it was too warm to sleep upstairs. There are two bathrooms one with a claw foot tub and the other has a shower. Petersburg, Kentucky is a very small town and quiet, which we appreciated. We were there to visit the Creation Museum and the life size replica of the Ark (very impressive). I wanted a place where we could all be together rather than all of us being in separate motel rooms. There is no smoking or pets allowed which is important to us. Give it a try you will be glad you did. Marcene
The location of the house was fantastic- small town, no traffic, able to take a run in the AM, walk along the river.
We were a family of 5 but the house could accommodate "a bunch of people".
The location was ideal to visit The Creation Museum and The Ark.

The house is beautiful and plenty of room for 8 of us. Parts of it was not very clean on arrival. The refrigerator had food particles and something spilled in it. So I had to clean it before using it. The kitchen floor was not swept. Something to keep in mind is that there is only one shower. A couple of our guests were ok with using the bathtub and that helped. Location to Creation museum and Ark Encounter were great. Close to some great dining establishments and surrounded by a lot of history. We would stay there again!!
