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 Kentucky

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.

It was a great family vacation!

The house was lovely -- much character and updated with all the modern needs. It was perfect for a family and the owners were very responsive. It's perfectly set up for a family of 8.

Home Away From Home!!

  • 5 of 5

House was very welcoming! Wonderful dead end road, which allowed our kids to ride 🛴 scooters and play without worrying about traffic. Had all we needed from measuring spoons to crock pot.

Visit Rabbit Hash, Creation Museum &a Ark Encounter! I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Parlor House. The house was very clean and full of character. I loved that we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. My children greatly enjoyed the Netflix subscription and board games that were provided. We will definitely stay in the Parlor House again during our next visit to the creation museum.

Clean and tidy house at a great location for Creation Museum and Ark Encounter visits

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights with my family and my in-laws. There was more than enough room for the 6 of us. The house was very clean with no clutter and lots of room for everything we brought along. Cute little town with friendly people and a nice playground within walking distance. We had a great time, and when we plan another trip to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter we will look to stay here again.
