About Mary Hitzfield

My husband Dan and I live in Petersburg with our two children and choose to make this quiet little town our home. This is a great advantage to our customers for us to be so close. We can easily help you out with any of your needs or questions. We reside in the “Berkshire house” which was constructed around 1928 form the Brick of the old distillery building. Dan works as a firefighter and I am a Librarian. Dan’s family has lived in Petersburg for 5 generations, so needless to say we are vested in our community. When traveling ourselves, we often stay in a vacation rental. We find this to be the best and most affordable choice for our family and we think that you will too. So we hope to welcome you to our community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Sincerely,

Mary Hitzfield

Why Mary Hitzfield chose Petersburg

Great location for visiting Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Wonderful place to walk around town and along the river. This is one of the few houses in Petersburg that has a large yard for children to play.

Clean & Comfy Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from "Parlor House". We enjoyed our stay in Kentucky close to the Creation Museum and 45 minute trip to Ark. Everything was VERY clean and comfortable. Owner was very quick to respond to my questions and to supply us with all info needed. My Brother and his wife joined us for their first time in a home vacation rental and was very pleased. The small town of Petersburg was a quiet town on the river. Thank you Mary for a well supplied and clean home.

Nice, Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Much nicer than a hotel room. Plenty of room for our party of 6 adults and 5 children. The kids enjoyed playing outside in the yard. If we come back to the Creation Museum I would definitely want to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay. the home had a warm feeling the minute you walked in, and it had everything needed to make your stay enjoyable. the owners went out of their way to make you feel at home. this was a special trip for us, we was taking my mom and dad to creation museum and art encounter. i picked this place due to my mom can only sleep in a recliner and she was very comfortable. thanks for making this such a special time for our family, being able to be together.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage looks small on the outside but is spacious on the inside. Very charming and cozy. It is just minutes away from the Creation Museum so we were able to come "home" for lunch and then go back. It is also only 45 minutes from the Ark Encounter so that was great for our trip too. We had supper at the little Pantry across town and the food was great and the people were very friendly.

The tub drains a little slow but we have a big family and never ran out of hot water.

We would highly recommend staying at this sweet little house with the big rooms!
